21st Anniversary of Marty Q & Bobby Pickett Live


21 years ago I produced a live music video featuring the very talented Marty Q and Bobby Pickett at the Downtown Cafe in Bristol, Connecticut. Marty Q is an International Recording Artist selling music to more than 1 Million people worldwide. Marty is a Pop/Rock and Jazz Singer/Songwriter, Saxophonist and Guitarist. He was voted New Haven County’s Best Local Musician 4 times and has reached #12 on Billboard Airplay charts with his hit song “Table for 2” in the Smooth Jazz Genre. You can learn more about Marty at MartyQ.Net

Equally talented is Bobby Pickett, who plays the guitar, harmonica and is also a very talented vocalist. At the time of this video, Marty and Bobby had produced and performed their famous CD entitled Brainforest which consisted of all original music with many of the songs they produced and performed that are in this live video. Today Bobby has branched out adding another musical instrument to his arsenal, the electric fiddle. Bobby continues to write and perform today, 21 years later.

Out of the 100+ shows that I produced in my first five seasons, this was my chance to produce a live event outside the normal technology based shows I was hosting and producing. Looking back, it’s pretty amazing how much technology has changed since then. When this video was produced in 1996, there was no Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. The Internet was pretty much dial up, Broadband was not quite in the picture yet, and we were using Super VHS tapes in the cameras. We did however have digital editing using an Avid digital editing system to perform most of the editing functions.

This event could have never been pulled off without the great production crew I had. One of my three awards in my five initial seasons was for this video. Special thanks for the production crew that helped pull off this event.

Everybody Dies, But Not Everyone Lives

From time to time I run across his inspirational postings on social media and really enjoy them.  You need to check him out, he has inspired many including myself. His name is Richard Williams, better known by his stage name Prince EA and is an American rapper, spoken word artist, music video director and rights activist.

He is from St Louis, Missouri and has a real interesting life story. Visit his web site, support him, and listen to what he has to say, it might make you re think what life is really about.  On his website there’s a library of motivational videos you can check out.

I once heard a quote from another inspirational speaker, Les Brown who said  “The wealthiest place on the planet is the grave yard, because in the graveyard we will find inventions that we were never ever exposed to, ideas, dreams that never became a reality, hopes and aspirations that were never acted upon. Greatness is a lot of small things done well”

Start living, find your purpose, use your gift, pursue your dreams and check out Enjoy!
