This isn’t the most well written article but it is several points as to what kills music scenes. Some of these points I brushed on and others I plan to discuss. If you are involved in the Long Island music scene, you can see most of these points EVERYWHERE! If you can’t see it… Take a look at yourself right now.
Long Island had one of the most promising music scenes ever. Now, it is destroyed.

My new jam of the week!
In case you live under a rock, this past Sunday was the 50th anniversary of The Beatles performance on the Ed Sullivan show. Arguably, the day that changed music in America.
Unless you were watching the Olympics or the Walking Dead mid season premier, you most likely had your tv tuned into CBS to catch this once in a lifetime event. And what a show it was.

This night was night was all about artists of all genres paying tribute to the greatest influencers in music history. For me it was such an emotional and inspiring night full of happiness, togetherness, and love.
I thank The Beatles for everything they have done. I’m not sure if music would be my life without them. I am to young to have seen the Ed Sullivan show live but I will never forget this tribute. Thank you to the Grammys and CBS for putting it together!
