I am a really happy guy this week. Why you ask? Well! Let me tell you…

December and January are busy months for me and my clients. Together, we will be headed from Hartford to Long Beach, Mexico to Virginia, with a whole lotta stops in between. I love my job, I love to travel, and I love being able to work on some pretty cool meetings with some pretty amazing people. [Read more...]

Meeting Planner Music Club – GHXST

Meeting Planner Halloween

Happy Halloween. Tonight is the time for meeting planners and eventprofs everywhere to do some trick or treating, have some good scares, and make dentist appointments.

But look out… You are about to see a GHXST….

GHXST (pronounced GHOST) is a dark artrock trio from New York City formed in 2010 by Christopher James and Shelley X after disbanding their previous Gothic noise band. Drummer Nathan Gray left school in San Diego a few months later to join the new lineup, adding powerful live percussion to the band’s stylish and chaotic sound.

This band reminds me of groups that I used to jam in the late eighties, early nineties. Groups like Ministry, Shriekback, and My Life with Trill Kill Kult…. I think that most of my meeting planner friends will find this tune surprisingly excellent…. Anyway, it is really good for Halloween.

Missed the Music Club last night. I guess it was meant to be so that we could have tonight’s special edition.

Lou Reed is Dead

Lou Reed is one of the coolest cats to ever walk this planet and he was  one of the artists that made me aware that there was more to life than Top 40 pop-rock and for that I am grateful.

Thanks Lou. You had an awesome run. For you… we do two.

Meeting Planner Music Club – Kiss Them For Me

M

Siouxsie & the Banshees are one of my favorite bands from the 80s and early 90s with most people knowing at least some of their bigger hits.

Today’s music club selection, Kiss Them for Me,  was released in 1991 and was the first single from the band’s 10th studio release Superstition. The album (and song) were a departure from their earlier post-punk roots and featured Indian musician Talvin Singh on two tracks, Kiss Them for Me and Silver Waterfalls. [Read more...]

Meeting Planner Music Club – Sail

Sail is one of those songs that I have been meaning to put in the music club rotation for quite a while but something else boppier (is that a word) always came along and pushed it to the side. No more….This is a great tune for the meeting planner on that last night of an event, an hour after the lights have dropped, belly up to the bar, ordering the first of many cocktails with your crew.

There is nothing better. [Read more...]
