Healing Arts Fest

We shared our talents at a lovely Healing Arts Fest with Siberian Healers in Hollywood, CA at Plummer Park. It was a great gathering of positive minded souls. Besides UFOs and environmental issues, our other main topic of lyrics is conscious music which is positive minded with an intention to be our best selves.

Live At Artistspalooza

We had so much fun playing at Artistpalooza Music And Filmmaker Mixer on April 3rd at Trip in Santa Monica. Plenty of talented people were there. And we shared the bill with Robot Nature and David Lockhart’s band, Johnny Lightning And The Flaming Peyote, Tehrah and special guests who sat in.

We were thrilled to have Kerry Crutchfield play drums for us along with Trevor Coppola on cello. Here is a video of our complete 5 song set.

Renowned red carpet photographer Bob Delgadillo captured the evening.

“Contact” – Live – Trip in Santa Monica

We had a fantastic time playing and socializing at David Lockhart’s event, SUSHI SUNDAY Artist and Filmmaker Social, at Trip in Santa Monica Jan 3, 2016. “Contact” is one of our UFO songs. Special thank you to our amazing guest musicians, Kerry Crutchfield on drums and Trevor Coppola on cello.

It was wonderful to see so many friends and make new ones. We’re very grateful for the privilege of playing music.

Live at The Egyptian Theater – Movie Premiere

Snowflakes On TV

Snowflakes members are proud to lend our talents as part of the house band for Highway To Hollywood, a pilot for a TV talk show. Martin is the MD (musical director). It was great fun to shoot the show. It’s all done in a giant green screen studio at LA Castle Studios. Martin wrote the song. Natasha is on bass. Kerry Crutchfield is on drums. George G. Woo is on keyboards. This group is officially known as Martin Blasick And The Highway To Hollywood Band.

Live At Cork Lounge

We played an unexpected set at Cork Lounge. It was a thrill to play with Natasha’s sister, Marina, in attendance. We’d just recorded a version of INXS’s “Beautiful Girl” with Marina on lead vocals. We found ourselves really enjoying the music and getting back up on stage.

Snowflakes Podcast Available On iTunes

Maybe it’s no big deal to the experienced podcasters, but we’re tickled silly that iTunes carries our podcast:

Snowflakes Podcast on iTunes

It’s just a pretty cool world that lets us share what’s up via iTunes’ really big umbrella. No money changes hands. They incorporate the RSS info into their podcast store but don’t host the media. That stays of our server. It’s a win-win. It’s easy to subscribe from the iTunes store.

I (Martin here) was slow to learn how to enjoy podcasts. Once I finally forced myself to study my iTunes for 5 minutes, I got tons of pleasure from podcasts that I’ve now followed for a couple of years. One of them is nearing its 200th episode. And the shows I listen to are never never never going to be on a mainstream outlet.

Did I dream that I’d be a podcaster? Or that Snowflakes would podcast? Never once until we attended the Los Angeles Podcast Festival recently. Now that the RSS thingy is worked out I believe our next Snowflakes episode will automatically appear on iTunes. Time to check the microphones…

 

An Intimate Night With Snowflakes – Nov 16, 2013

We’ll be playing Venice, CA’s The Love Dome on Nov 16.

“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.

 

Playing on October 13

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.

Sunday Set For Saturday Sinners

Sunday SetWe’re delighted to play a guest set at Mark Prudeaux’s Sunday Set For Saturday Sinners at TRiP in Santa Monica. It’s a monthly show that includes giveaways, $2 mimosas and a 3pm set by Mark.
