Jake Miller - Back To The Start Tour - Ft. Lauderdale, FL

(Reporter and Photographer - Kiersten Pacelli) - Jake Miller closes out his Back To The Start Tour with his original fans at his home base in South Florida. The final show took place at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Hometown friends and family filled the venue, bringing all the hype and energy needed to make the evening unforgettable.

Jake’s fourth national headline tour, and his first tour without a record label behind him was an overwhelming success. His comments on Instagram following the show laid it out simply- “you guys [the fans] are my label now”. This loyal following, seen all over social media, has been coined the “Millertary”.

The vibe for the night was upbeat with a homey, locals-only feel. All three openers, including @thestolen who opened for Jake throughout the tour, brought their A-game. The night, and the tour as a whole, ended with a bang- just as Jake expected it to. Post-show he announced, “we may already be planning another tour”. Keep a lookout for Jake’s new music and next tours sneak peeks. (FULL STORY AND PICS)

9th Annual Downtown Orlando Food & Wine Festival Recap

Cirque Du Soleil -- Kurios Cabinet of Curiosities

Kurios is a winner right out of the chute! Likely the best Cirque shows I have seen. I have seen a half a dozen or so of Cirque shows in Vegas as well as in Miami. This was clearly my favorite... Every seat in the tent had a great view, plenty of air conditioning and the refreshments were par... Make sure you get there early. If you only get there in time for the show than you’re missing part of the full experience. KURIOS’s pre-show really ushered in an atmosphere of pure excitement. You came into a big outdoor area filled with photo ops of performers on stilts, with giant wheeled bicycles and so much more. Then, servers came around with intoxicating red and white wines, spring water and a variety of appetizer tyoe food stuffs.

The acts ranged from singers, comedians, contorsioniss, acrobats, trampolines, bicycles, high wire, jugglers that were amazing - beyond the quality of anything i have seen in one place at anny time. There were also many acrobats which had me cringing and applauding in unison. When each of these mesmerizing and death defying performances happened there was still other things going on so your eyes and your attention were all over the place taking it all in.

It was really magical. From the lady singing the entire time to the crazy yo-yo act. We really enjoyed it. The action, costumes, show content and variety was unbelievable. I recall the intermission was long enough to refresh your drink and make it back to your seat. From beginning to end, there was action, comedy, and definitely a departure from reality which is the whole point of the show - to transport you to a magical place where crazy acrobatics are the norm, never a dull moment.

In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a Seeker discovers that in order to glimpse the marvels that lie just below the surface, we must first learn to close our eyes.

In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the Seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams lie waiting. A collection of otherworldly characters suddenly steps into his makeshift mechanical world. When the outlandish, benevolent characters turn his world upside down with a touch of poetry and humor in an attempt to ignite the Seeker’s imagination, his curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.

What if by engaging our imagination and opening our minds we could unlock the door to a world of wonders?For event information and tickets, please visit the Cirque Du Soleil web site at Cirque Du Soleil. Come on out and enjoy this wonderful event.

Diplo to Produce His Own Exclusive SiriusXM Channel

“Diplo’s Revolution” to launch Thursday, March 22 in Miami Beach with an exclusive live DJ set for SiriusXM subscribers from Diplo and friends

NEW YORK– SiriusXM announced today that GRAMMY award winning producer and DJ Diplo will launch his own radio channel, Diplo’s Revolution, exclusively on SiriusXM.

The channel, which will launch on Thursday, March 22, will feature global rhythmic music hand-selected by Diplo, as well as regular original shows hosted by Diplo, Dillon Francis and Major Lazer members Jillionaire and Walshy Fire. Diplo’s Revolution will also showcase the biggest songs in global, hip hop, experimental and underground dance culture.

The channel will air live festival coverage from the most important electronic music festivals around the world including Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas and more. In addition to championing the diverse and eclectic musical tastes that have put Diplo at the forefront of music and pop culture, Diplo’s Revolution will also include songs from his solo projects, Major Lazer, Jack Ü and further upcoming collaborations.

Diplo’s exclusive SiriusXM channel will launch with a special live performance from the Faena Theater in Miami Beach on Thursday, March 22 at 9:00 pm ET. This exclusive performance, for SiriusXM subscribers, will feature DJ sets from Diplo and friends, and will air live on Diplo’s Revolution, on SiriusXM channel 52 and through the SiriusXM app.   

"I'm so stoked to be starting my own channel with SiriusXM. Back in 2012 I had a show with them called 'Blow Your Head,' and it's awesome to be back in the family launching this project together. I'm excited to share my favorite music from all over the world, and can't wait to have tons of friends on to do the same," said Diplo.

“It’s exciting to have GRAMMY winner Diplo as part of the SiriusXM family. I have no doubt that Diplo’s Revolution will quickly become a listener favorite among our already popular dance channels, especially given his work as not only a solo artist but as part of Jack Ü and Major Lazer,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM. “A well-respected producer, tastemaker, DJ, writer and performer, Diplo will share his singular point of view with SiriusXM listeners, exposing them to the most important dance music from around the globe.”

A global superstar, Diplo has worked with some of today’s most important artists including Beyoncé, Justin Bieber and The Weeknd, and has toured the world solo as Diplo, as one half of Jack Ü with Skrillex and as one third of Major Lazer. Diplo’s new exclusive SiriusXM channel will highlight the renowned producer’s worldwide influence.

Diplo’s Revolution is the latest SiriusXM channel created with iconic and leading artists, including Eminem’s Shade 45, Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Radio, The Beatles Channel, Jimmy Buffett’s Radio Margaritaville, Garth Brooks’ The Garth Channel, Willie Nelson’s Willie’s Roadhouse, Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Radio, Tom Petty Radio, Pearl Jam Radio, B.B.

FLOSSTRADAMUS Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado

Reported by Kiersten Pacelli

After debuting at Stubbs in Austin, Texas last year HDYFEST moved to the beautiful state of Colorado to the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater for the 2016 edition. Flosstradamus, the trap duo, was joined by their friends Snails, Valentino Khan, Chill Harris and of course a venue full of passionate fans.

The Mile High City doesn’t lack preparation when it comes to 4/20— there was definitely not a shortage of events for this holiday. Of all of the options though, in my opinion, Flosstradamus was the obvious choice. The annual 4/20 show at Red Rocks is one of the most anticipated events for Coloradans. It was a major turn around from the usual reggae or hip-hop show— but the heavy bass sure didn’t disappoint.

Snails came on stage when it was still light enough to be able to appreciate the background, and sunset, behind the geologically formed amphitheater. He played the best set of the festival, in my opinion again— this could be because of the surprise appearance from Dom with Big Gigantic. The electronic funk combined with the live saxophone was a scene to remember for years to come, and luckily I got it all on video!

Following, Flosstradamus put on a spectacular show for their huge sea of fans. Not only did they take up the entire width of the stage with their stage set and props, they also brought along lasers, floodlights, and a t-shirt gun. They went all out with their costumes as well— the scene looked like it came straight from a military base. I do believe the music itself could have been better, but that was probably because it wasn’t loud enough. The sound ordinances put a heavy limitation on the concert and right at 10:00 it was obvious that the rules had kicked in. As unfortunate as it was, Flosstradamus still put on a great show and most definitely didn’t disappoint, you could tell how excited the two of them were to be there.

Although it was a bit chilly, and it was a Wednesday, HDYFEST 2016 was certainly a wild party. The fans left all the energy they had at the amphitheater, forgetting about the long walk back to the car— at least it was down hill this time :)

TANZY at iPic, Boca Raton "ARTISANAL ITALIAN" - A Perfect Spot to Eat, Drink and Be Entertained

Sherry Yard’s Tanzy features Artisanal Italian cuisine with a focus on garden-fresh modern Italian flavors in a social environment to share with friends, family and colleagues. Delight in inspiring flavors where seasonal ingredients are the star in every dish, artfully prepared by melding contemporary techniques with classic Italian influences; the resulting flavor profiles are nuanced, modern and unique. Master Bartender and Advanced Sommelier Adam Seger crafts an unparalleled beverage program with local beers, an expertly curated wine list and stunning farm-to-glass handcrafted cocktails. Not to be missed is Executive Pastry Chef James Rosselle’s cake and dessert cart featuring Raspberry Infinity Cake and Chocolate Meringue Concord Cake! Tanzy’s Weekend Brunch includes mouthwatering offerings from Decadent French Toast to Slow-Poached Egg + Short Rib.

Imaginative and innovative design meets with a whimsical atmosphere featuring neutral and deep plum colors highlighting the bar, dining room and outdoor area. With an eclectic ambiance inspired by the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy, the multi-dimensional environment was designed to embody the nostalgic Italian villas etched into the Coast’s charming mountainside, with expanding dining environments each reflecting a different time and era. No detail was spared when selecting the materials used to create the warm, inviting atmosphere. An enchanted forest is brought to life with several types of woods, bird inspired chandeliers hanging with the glow of flickering candles, and different styles and colors of tile landscaping the walls and pillars throughout the restaurant.

Tanzy Unveils Fresh New Menu w/ Delicious New Brunch, Lunch, Dinner & Dessert Items Be the First to Enjoy New Garden-Fresh Modern Italian Dishes by Award-Winning Chef Sherry Yard w/ Garden-to-Glass Cocktail, Wine & Beer Program by Executive Bartender/Corporate Sommelier Adam Seger

The evening began with a nice sprakling wine and warm Focaccia with Grissini. This was followed up with their Tuna Crudo, Yellowtail Crudo and Wedge Salad - as you can see in our photos, all well presented and quite flavorful. We were then served some of their pasta dishes, Spinach-Ricotta Gnudi (roasted mushrooms, basil pesto, gorgonzola cream, grana padano) and Beet Agnolotti (mascarpone-potato filling, poppy seed, black winter truffle, parmesan). My wife favored thge Spinach while I favored the Beet dish. The entrees they brought out were Black Grouper Puttanesca, Pressed Chicken Mattone (creamy polenta, grilled trumpet mushrooms, blood orange gastrique) and Cowboy Cut Bone-In Ribeye (SDA Choice, Black Angus, Creekstone Farms, Arkansas City, KS, Wet Aged 21+ days). It was hard to decide which was our preferred, but we agreed the Chicken Mattone came out on top. The Grouper and the Rib-eye were close seconds. The grand finale was when they wheeled out the custom made desert cart, selections include Red Infinate Cake, Concord Cake chocolate mousse, chocolate meringue, chocolate cake, chocolate ganache, chocolate sauce, whipped cream) and a Cookie Tower (rainbow cookies, pistachio pavé, coconut macaroons, flourless brownies, tea cakes, farmers market strawberries, farmers market grapes). The macaroons were amazing. They also offer desserts from the kitchen and house made Italian liqueurs. I expect the rest of the menu would be as flavorful and comforting... A definite place to return too, for dinner alone or followed up with a movie. Be on the lookout for a new location coming soon to Delray. Tanzy Boca Mizner Park: 301 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, FL.

North America’s largest, portable observation wheel coming to South Florida Fair

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 2, 2018) –– North America’s largest, portable observation wheel — promoted as the “ride of a lifetime” — will make its way to the South Florida Fair for the first time. Co-owned by Frank Zaitshik of Wade Shows, the fair’s midway operator, and Michael Wood of Wood Entertainment, the Midway Sky Eye will arrive at the fairgrounds on Sat., Jan. 6, and set up will begin on Sun., Jan. 7. It’s expected to take three days to complete it. The Midway Sky Eye, which was manufactured by the Lamberink company in the Netherlands, made its North American debut at the 2017 Florida State Fair. The giant wheel requires a 160,000 pound crane to erect the towers. The heaviest part is the center axle, which weighs 6,600 pounds. In all, the ride weighs more than 400,000 pounds — about 20 times as heavy as an elephant!

The massive wheel reaches a peak height of 155 feet and is comprised of more than 500 pieces. It reaches so high that it requires FAA clearance, which has already been obtained. The wheel is equipped with more than 524,000 individual LED red, green, blue, yellow, orange and purple lights, making it the brightest spectacle at the fair, and requires more than six miles of electrical wiring. The 36 gondolas hold six riders each, who can see for miles from the top.

The ride will cost $5/ticket and is excluded from wrist bands. Riders must be 42 inches tall without a supervising companion or 36 inches with a supervising companion. Other restrictions may apply.

It has a beachy-chic look, the full-service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner recently unveiled its redesigned space with white-washed wood floors and cool blue, leather furnishings and walls.

We had the pleasure of sampling items from the lunch and dinner menu. We started with a Ceasar salad woth a homemade dressing of shaved parmasean, creamy artichoke tapenade and perfect romaine hearts. Add a grilled chick breast and i can only imagine. The Conch Chowder was light and creamy. And the street tacos, skirt steak or Mahi-Mahi, both great options. Lest I forget the fantastic slider appetizer - grass fed beef, chef's spice and bacon onion jam on a light and fresh toasted brioche. (Full Story and Photos)
