Deborah Hanson-Conant Intermission Interview

27 01 2013

Tonight I was invited by my friend +Deborah Henson-Conant to attend her concert and to share some content from her performance. It was an amazing show. Even with some early technical difficulties Deborah was able to keep the audience entertained with her comedian story telling skills. During the intermission Deborah asked me back stage for an impromptu interview along with +Adam Zand and Jared. Here’s a clip from Deborah back stage.

Below is how you see more detail about Deborah from her web site (noted at the bottom of this post).

Please enjoy!Deborah Henson-Conant (“DHC”) is a GRAMMY©-Nominated one-woman orchestra. With electric harp, voice and a looper pedal that she layers sounds in real time, then weaves solo lines and vocals above it.

Her signature instrument is an 11lb carbon-fiber electric harp, designed specifically for her by the CAMAC Harp Company in France, it’s now one of the fastest-selling new harp models in the world and carries her name, the “DHC Light.”

Forget the demure harpist — forget the Classical Music — forget dozing off in the back row. Henson-Conant is a showman, entertainer and solid musician who’s been compared to musical greats from Leonard Bernstein to Elvis Presley.

Her voice is compared to Carly Simon and Joan Baez; her playing to Chuck Berry and Jimi Hendrix; and her humor to musical comedian Victor Borge and even Eddie Izzard.

Her shows, her life, her instrument, her workshops and her music are all about transformation — all tied together by powerful, funny, affirming stories and universal humor.

Legendary “Tonight Show” trumpeter Doc Severinsen calls her the “Wild Woman of the Harp,” iconic rock guitarist Steve Vai says she’s the “Jimi Hendrix of the Harp.” See her once and you’ll never look at a harp the same way again.

She’s toured with the Boston Pops, opened for Ray Charles at Tanglewood, jammed onstage with Bobby McFerrin and offstage with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler.She’s been featured on television shows from Charlie Rose to Joan Rivers and “The View” and in two full-length PBS music specials.

First ever Google+ New Your City HIRL (Hangout In Real Life)

12 02 2012

Google+ nycHIRL Feb. 5, 2012

First ever Google+ New Your City HIRL (Hangout In Real Life) took place in February 2012 with 70+ friends that meet in a Google+ hangout from around the word.

We gathered in New York City to celebrate our friendships by hanging out in real life.

Matthew Rappaport and Tiffany Henry organized a weekend that built memories that will last a lifetime.

We meet at the G+ HIRL HQ (head quarters) on Thursday night where there were a lot of hugs and kisses. Matthew went live ON AIR with his show Hangout Conversations with special guest Daria Musk and Ram Rich as a pre-show for the concert.

Friday we had a tour of the Google office with some free time to follow.

Friday night we were entertained by three of the most popular recording artist’s on Google+. Heather Fay, Ryan Van Sickle and Daria Musk. The music filled the room with fun and excitement that one can not explain. You’ll have to experience it for yourself however, we hope that by watching this video you’ll feel a piece of what we did.

Saturday we had a photo walk starting by walking over the Brooklyn Bridge, around the city, Ground Zero and ended by Battery Park looking at The Lady, The Statue of Liberty.

And just as fast as it began it ended. The first ever nycHIRL was over. But we did not exit the hangout sad, because we know that all we have to do is log back on and all our friends our close friends will be there.

We hope you enjoy this short video and feel a piece of what we felt.

There are a number of close friend that could not be with us for this event do to various reasons but made a contribution to our experience. I want to highlight one of many. But this man, this illustrator just makes you feel good when your with him in a hangout and I am sure in real life as well. Mike Searle created some artwork as a way to help us promote the event. Thank you Mike. Your work is great and very much appreciated my friend.

Thank you to Ron Jackson for capturing a video via live smart phone live hangout as we visited the Google office. A memory we would not have with out you doing this.

There are so many other friend to many to thank here, but we all know who you are. We hope to meet you in real life sometime very soon as well. And we all thank you for what you do every day.

Please feel free to share this post and video as a way to let others know that Google+ is here to stay. It’s the fastest growing social media network in the word that has so much power and potential you have to experience it for yourself to understand.

So log on, and lets hangout!
