Eating Lunch
Lunch & Learn

Musicians Lunch NYC is back, and scheduled for this Saturday, May 9th at 1pm!

Musician’s Lunch is a luncheon event to bring together musicians who are interested in learning about the latest trends in music marketing and ideas for promotion over a meal.
The cost is $25 in NYC, and you pay for your own lunch. In addition to the fun we’ll be having, each lunch attendee in NYC will also get a free music marketing strategy guide! If you have your heart set on sitting next next to me, that spot goes to the first musician who offers to buy my lunch!

I love talking about music, I love breaking down marketing strategies, and I love eating out. This project is right up my alley, and I plan to do as many musician lunches as I can fit in this year. If you don’t live in NYC or London, and you’re interested in participating, leave me a comment below, and we’ll see if we can find a way to visit your town. After this, I’ll be heading next to New Orleans for a Musicians Lunch on May 23rd!

If you’re interested in learning the latest music marketing techniques successful musicians use to build a buzz, grow their audience, and sell more CDs, visit Musician’s Lunch!

Blame It On The Alcohol – Jamie Foxx – Performed by JR Aquino

Posted in A Day in the Life, Future Legends, New Music Artist | No Comments »

I just returned from awesome homecoming trip of Miami and West Palm Beach, FL to see my family and friends. While driving around in my rental car, I listened to a lot of radio, and despite my better judgement, I fell in love with Jamie Foxx’ “Blame it on the Alcohol”. Although I hate the idea of blaming (or justifying!) a one night stand on alcohol, the groove of this song cannot be denied.

I had the idea of creating parody lyrics, and while googling the original lyrics, I actually found guitar chords for the song. After digging a little deeper, I learned that another guy had an acoustic performance video of Blame it on the Alcohol” on YouTube. This musician is a soulful singer/songwriter named JR Aquino, and he’s from Anchorage, Alaska! I thought that that was pretty cool because while I may never get to Anchorage, I can always get to YouTube, so JR is very smart to leverage the power of the internet. Plus, now I can share him with YOU! Enjoy!

If you want to take a stab at this song yourself, you can also find the lyrics and chords here.

PS – If you’re gonna do anything questionable in life, never blame it on the alcohol, okay? Just own up to it, and move on! 😉
