Sir Richard Branson @Flight Path Museum (LAX)
We were honored to attend and film the ceremony where Sir Richard Branson was presented with his plaque by Flight Path Museum Board of Directors President Lynne Adelman and Vice President Lori Keir.
He joins a distinguished group of past inductees – pioneers and individuals who helped ensure Southern California’s world leadership in aviation/aerospace – including the first man to break the sound barrier, retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager; entrepreneur, pilot and airline founder Howard Hughes; and Apollo 12 astronaut Pete Conrad. Other honorees include Orville and Wilbur Wright, Charles A. Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, entertainer Bob Hope and astronaut Sally Ride.
Steve Tyrell "A Song For You"
Steve Tyrell was surprised April 10th at his Cafe Carlyle opening night by Kevin Gore, president of Arts Music Warner Music group with a plaque celebrating Steve’s latest album “A Song For You” being #1 on the Billboard Charts.
Al Roker & Deborah Roberts were in the Cafe for Steve’s fourteenth return to the legendary, intimate cabaret room in The Carlyle.
“A Song For You” is a 12-track release that features Grammy and Emmy Award winner Tyrell’s takes on classic love songs by Van Morrison, Leon Russell, Jackie Wilson, Harold Arlen & Johnny Mercer and more. A Song For You furthers Tyrell’s vision of bridging songwriting from the rock era with that of the standards era, placing at its core the fundamental immortality of great songwriting. In 2005, after the passing of the legendary Bobby Short, Steve was asked by New York City’s Café Carlyle to take over their revered holiday season of November and December, which Mr. Short had not missed for 36 years.

San Diego Strategy Sessions
Our recent trip to San Diego courtesy of Lighthouse Strategies, BrewBudz and Tea Gallerie was enlightening, to say the least. We introduced Mrs. McCartney's Teas and Wines brands to the boards of these pioneering companies, and had a great time at the "After Party" promoted by Sensi Magazine.
When it comes to branching out with our Mrs. McCartney's brands, the sky's the limit. Literally.
Thanks to Lighthouse and Sensi for making us so welcome and exploring brand extension possibilities with Mrs. McCartney's.

Nick Marechal Music Video
By now you should be familiar with our artist Nick Marechal.We recently shot and produced Nick's first music video, entitled: "Charming Distraction", which was filmed at East West Studios in Hollywood, Playa del Rey and the Valley. The song has a very romantic feel to it, so we decided to cast an actress (Viviane Sambugaro) to play the part of Nick's lovely wife, and brand it as an official "Crooner" song.
We since dubbed Nick "The Rock'n Roll Frank Sinatra". Judge for yourself. Click here for Video.

How you doin'?
Well that was the greeting we received in Staten Island at our last live stage show "Behind The Beatles" The Center of The Arts at the College of Staten Island hosted the show for excited east coast Beatles Fans on December 2nd, last year.
Thanks to John Jankowski and Christina Werkmeister (from Kassel, much to Martin's surprise), who was the coordinating producer on behalf of the college, they all did a tremendous job putting it all together back stage.

Remembering Linda McCartney.
Linda remained active right up to her death on April 17, 1998. “She was fighting right up to the end,” Paul McCartney said. “Even on the day before she died, she was out on horseback. She loved riding so much. Sometimes she’d get up on her horse and I’d say, ‘You don’t want to get down, do you?’ She preferred it up there than on the ground.”
Photography, horses and animal rights were among her interests outside of music. She also inspired a number of songs, most of which were composed by Paul.
But the first one was written when she was just a little girl. Her father, entertainment lawyer Lee Eastman, asked one of his clients, Jack Lawrence, to write a song using his daughter’s name. The result was “Linda,” which has been recorded by many artists. It was a hit in 1947 for Buddy Clark and the Ray Noble Orchestra.
