Posted in A Day in the Life, Future Legends, Musician Resources, Videos | 2 Comments »

My friend Ariel Hyatt has launched the 2nd edition of her Music Success in Nine Weeks book! To celebrate, she’s starting a new Blogging Challenge today, July 5th, which ends September 6th.

Although I’m one of the contest judges, I still couldn’t help creating my own blog for my upcoming Rock Star Life Lessons internet TV show! Music Success in Nine Weeks is an invaluable guide for any musician wanting to learn about social media, and I highly recommend it!

Make Music New York 2010 – featuring Hungry March Band!

Posted in A Day in the Life, Future Legends, nyc singer, Videos | No Comments »

Make Music New York is a live, free musical celebration across the city that takes place each June 21 — the first day of Summer (and longest day of the year).

make music new york 2009

On that day, hundreds of public spaces throughout the five boroughs — sidewalks, parks, community gardens, and more — become impromptu stages for over 1,000 free concerts. Musicians of all ages, creeds, and musical persuasions perform for new audiences, who come out from under their headphones to hear unfamiliar groups risk-free on the first day of summer.

Last year’s Make Music NY, I sang in front of my friend’s yummy store, Divalicious Chocolate. For this year’s Make Music New York, I skipped doing a solo gig in favor for participating in a New Orleans-style Second Line parade through the streets of New York City, organized in part by musician Evan Hammer.

I ended up becoming a member of Brooklyn’s Hungry March Band for the day, dancing, playing, and parading through mid-town New York City, from Lincoln Center down to Columbus Circle. It was a lot of fun to dance through the streets, with people following and dancing along. It was a happiness-maker, for sure!

Check out my video to see how much joy the Hungry March Band had. Please excuse all the movement of my video cam. It was hard to dance and videotape at the same time, but you’ll definitely get the idea of how much fun was had by all!

Mermaid Parade 2010

Posted in A Day in the Life, Mermaid Parade, Videos | No Comments »

This year I attended my third Mermaid Parade in Brooklyn’s Coney Island. This year Coney Island showed off some of its recent “Luna Park” renovations.

Sez Coney Island’s website:
A completely original creation of Coney Island USA, the Mermaid Parade is the nation’s largest art parade and one of New York City’s greatest summer events. The parade is proud to have some incredible sponsors.

Founded in 1983 by Coney Island USA, the not-for-profit arts organization that also produces the Coney island Circus Sideshow, the Mermaid Parade pays homage to Coney Island’s forgotten Mardi Gras which lasted from 1903 to 1954, and draws from a host of other sources resulting in a wonderful and wacky event that is unique to Coney Island.

The Mermaid Parade celebrates the sand, the sea, the salt air and the beginning of summer, as well as the history and mythology of Coney Island, Coney Island pride, and artistic self-expression. The Parade is characterized by participants dressed in hand-made costumes as Mermaids, Neptunes, various sea creatures, the occasional wandering lighthouse, Coney Island post card or amusement ride, as well as antique cars, marching bands, drill teams, and the odd yacht pulled on flatbed.

All was not fun and fins though. Some mermaids used this festive occasion to protest BP’s Oil Spill in the Gulf:

It was the most packed that I ever remember – almost too much so. I’d guess that the Mermaid Parade is no longer a “best kept secret”!

The final installment from my University of Miami Mini-Concert, which took place in 1995. I’m already behind in my weekly video postings, but it’s not for lack of content. There are tons more videos where these came from – aren’t you lucky!!! 😉

While a Studio & Jazz Vocal Major at the University of Miami in 1995, I performed a “Mini Concert” as part of my graduation requirements. As one of this year’s resolutions is to publish new videos each week, I’m starting with the archives.

Should be interesting (notice how short my hair was then)!

Carla Lynne Hall Segment in Aged Inventory Mock Documentary, “Selling Out”

Posted in A Day in the Life, Future Legends, Indie Music, Videos | No Comments »

I love singing with classic rockers Aged Inventory, as I get the opportunity to sing some of my favorite rock hits for thousands of people each year around the US. Made up of mostly Fixed Income traders on Wall Street, Aged Inventory has helped raise over $500,000 USD via various charity performances over the past several years.

Another reason I love playing with these guys is that they have a great sense of humor, and create fun projects like their recent Behind the Music-styled DVD, “Aged Inventory – Selling Out”.

Here’s my segment of Aged Inventory’s DVD, which was taped in preparation of a performance at NYC’s Webster Hall. Thanks for the great compliments, Guys!
