I Like It

Verse 1
It’s been awhile
Since the last time we met
You’re still the same
As far as I can remember
My heart is overflowing
I cannot believe my eyes

You’re one in a million, I like it
You shine so bright, I like it
I like the way you call my name
I like your free spirit
I like it, everything, I like it

Verse 2
Remember me or not, I don’t care
I am just standing there
Looking at your smile
The butterflies in my stomach
You change it, it’s ready to fly
Baby, you know how to talk
Baby, you know how to smile
You’re tearing down my ego

This time I will not let go (never let go)
I hold my breath to say
This time I will not run away
I’ve been waiting for this moment

Article Opinion

Musician Defined

I saw this meme a while back, and while funny, there is also a lot of truth to this for a musician starting out, and even musicians with decades of experience performing gigs still operate like this. We know hundreds of local musicians, and I don’t know a single musician in Pittsburgh that can pay their bills with music alone; that’s what they all want (to pay the bills with music), but it simply isn’t happening. The old expression “starving artist” is used so frequently, because the situation is so common. It’s fun and exciting to play music, and tons of people want to do it, and they dream about being rich and famous, but huge success is usually impossible without huge sacrifice, and every small business must suffer through the “starving season” before the harvest comes. When I worked at Google, my coworker told me he thought about opening a pizza shop, and he got advice from a friend that owned a restaurant. The friend said, “Do not start a business unless you are comfortable making no money for at least 3 years and you have $300,000 to invest.” Every situation is different, and there are always exceptions to the norm, but as far as I can tell, every kind of startup business (and a new, working musician is a startup business) is going to struggle and sacrifice simply to survive and then struggle and sacrifice so much more if it wants any chance at being successful.

     When you’re at Tube City Brew Works the food is awesome and  the customer service is top notch with Server Nikki and the Bar Manager Chris. You can’t miss the Kaiju Monsters mural that goes the whole length of the wall.

     The band set up to rock with Jessica Bella on vocals,  Chris Volpini on Bass, Alex Wisniewski, and Ben Osmund on percussion.  First banger was the sweet hit “River” featuring her mother tongue of Indonesian Bahasa. The crowd really appreciated Alex Wisniewski’s sweet guitar solos.

      The night continued and soon it was time for the guest band Moonshine Jasmine. Megan Pennington and Tyler Cannon graced us with their hits like “Nowhere Ohio” and “Millvale Blues.” You can find Moonshine Jasmine on the Music of Pittsburgh Playlist on Spotify and as Moonshine Jasmine on Facebook. It’s a little country and a little rock and a lot of awesome.

     It was a great time in the last hour of the Jessica Bella Band performance.  A great reprise of her great hits like “I like it” and a funky version of “Time to Be Alive” had the crowd singing along. You can see some of the action on HERE  

     A huge thank you to Tube City Brew Works for having Jessica Bella Band.  They are returning June 11th at 8pm for another rocking performance!
