Rocking the throne! Natasha was a judge at the Plaza del Valle baby and toddler beauty pageant. Cute kids and a sash wearing, bass playing beauty queen (that’s Natasha – Mrs. World top 10 finalist and swimsuit winner) jamming rock n roll on stage with Snowflakes.
Natasha’s fellow judges were, Saúl Mejía, President at Panorama City Chamber Of Commerce & – Business Development Manager & CEO of Global Tech and Amber Martinez, Ms North America United Nations 2016. Thank you Marc Friedlander for booking us!!
We pulled together a slideshow video for our cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine”. We played so many great shows last year and have been chipping away at our upcoming album. In the meantime the meaning of this song was speaking to us. We weren’t planning on recording a cover. But the spirit struck and we are pleased to share John Lennon’s prayer for peace and photos from the fun gigs we’ve played.
“Doors open at 9:00pm, music starts promptly at 10:00pm. Immerse yourself in hours of acoustic tunes with Snowflakes. Cash donation bar, no outside beverages please. Artist Q&A after the show. Only 40 tickets available. Pre-sale only.”
We are so looking forward to this. It seems almost like a house concert, which we’ve yet to play. There’s an hour of music, an hour of mingling and then another, shorter set. It sounds like a perfectly lovely evening to us. All the details are on our gig calender Tickets are being sold through EventBrite. The Love Dome is a westside institution.
We love the Phoster app for making gig posters. And we love playing electric shows with Tom Gonzalez on drums. Rock you soon!
UPDATE: We didn’t take a single picture last night. How did that happen? It was a fun vibe opening for Eagles tribute group Best Of My Love. We played as a duo because our drummer Tom was too sick to make it out. Usually we go acoustic when it’s just the two of us. But the electric guitar and amp were all rigged up. When the the music starts up, we always have fun with it. There was some creative echo that magically appeared on the vocal. Funny how the echos seemed at least as loud as the original. Funny as in, well, nevermind… It actually was fun making spooky Halloween sounds with it.
Snowflakes is proud to contribute a performance tonight for a film, The Forgotten Heartbeat, promoting mental health awareness. Pics to follow. Mini red carpet. Great cause.
Edit: The event was lovely. Amanda’s trailer is compelling. Her movie deserves to be made. The mysteries of electronics made the PA unavailable. So we just played acoustically. The electric bass worked because we just plugged the amp into an outlet. We were really touched by how carefully people listened. The Medusa in Silverlake was the locale. Photos by Haldane Morris
Jonathan Zadok hosts some really great comedy and songwriter nights around Los Angeles. Snowflakes is always delighted to jam at his soirées. Max Holly showed up to cheer on the night. Tom Bishell appeared out of the blue and snapped neat photos. He’s a pro and it shows! The sound was great onstage and we had a thoroughly wonderful rock out sesh. Photos by Tom Bishell.
