I had the opportunity to see Halestorm in Las Vegas at the House of Blues on February 13, 2010. It was a rockin' show and I was able to have a drink and talk with them later on that evening. If the band is in your city, do yourself a favor and check them out!

2010 Grammy Awards

Where to even begin . . .

Its hard to put the evening into words when you are rubbing elbows with some of the biggest names in the music industry. Its not everyday one could walk down the red carpet with Usher, John Legend, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Ryan Seacrest, and Adam Lambert to name a few I saw!

I have watched past Grammy shows on television and only could imagine what it would be like to be in attendance. Attending the 2010 Grammy Awards was one of the most exciting and most entertaining experiences! The evening was spent talking with some wonderful people and watching amazing performances by the biggest names in music.

Unfortunately we were prohibited to take any pictures on the red carpet, but the rush of living it will never be forgotten. From a technical stand point, this was the largest LIVE taping event I have ever been to and to see it flow like clockwork was just incredible.
