This weekend marked the 60th Annual Grammy Awards! I am so excited that the Grammys were held in NYC after 15 years of being in Los Angeles! I was fortunate enough to hit a few pre-Grammy parties on Saturday.
This weekend I attended The Soiree Gala at BB Kings & a private pre-Grammy party at the W Hotel.
The Soiree Gala
At the Soiree Gala, I saw a few performances and met a few of the artists one of which, Kay Morris, was a "Considered Grammy Nominee" performing that night! In fact, I guess I played the part so well, that she asked me to take a selfie with her and thought I was also performing that night.
Next stop was the W Hotel in Times Square for a private party where Lexy Panterra performed a few song. I will be honest, I did not know too much about Lexy prior to Saturday night, but she had a great voice!
Sadly I did not make it to Clive Davis' or Diddy's Parties, but I had a great time. Cant wait until next Grammy Week, I hope the Recording Academy brings the Grammys back to NYC soon!
Why do I love the Grammys so much? Well, I actually I have quite the ties with music...
Here are some fun facts about my ties to the music and the industry (in semi chronological order):
- I can play the piano, clarinet & recorder
- I was very involved with "street teams" when I was in HS, in fact I was VP of the Greg Raposo (formerly of Dream Street) Street Team and NY State Leader of the Stevie Brock Street Team.
- I interned at a Warner Music for 1.5 years in college (2 semesters on the label side & 1 semester in corporate). I had the pleasure of interning with Liz Rosenberg during my time at WBR.
- I LOVE going to concerts
Congratulations to all of the Grammy nominees and winners!
Big shoutouts to Bruno Mars & Jay-Z on your big wins!
