Alice’s Summerthing 2011

1 Jul

There was an amazing set up for Alice’s Summerthing this past Sunday at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.  The weather turned out to be incredible and the park filled up fast with over 20,000 people to create the largest Summerthing turnout to date!  I love working for a company that can make 20,000 people show up and leave feeling like they had the best Sunday they could have had.  Above is a shot of the stage from pretty close up.

The crowd went so far back it was crazy.  As far as you could see there was a huge crowd of people.  There were so many that they trickled onto the hilly sides and even up into the trees!

Here is Parachute performing up close and personal with the crowd.  You might recognize them from previous blog posts as they have come into my work before and did a special lunch time performance for us.  They have such a beautiful sound and a personal show.  They will be going on tour with Michelle Branch and the Goo Goo Dolls soon!

Of course, we are always creating fun times together 🙂  We are missing Rani in this photo though!!  We took this before she got there.

Oh good morning!

Jen and I during Matthew Nathanson, a San Francisco singer songwriter with an amazing voice.

The event was a huge success and Alice 97.3 has an AMAZING team that put on seamless events.  I can’t wait for Now and Zen at the end of summer!

Another amazing lunch

12 Apr

Days like today are the ones where I really do feel oh so lucky to work in a place that invites musicians in to serenade the building.  Today was extra special because we actually got two artists to each play a few songs which I’ve heard is very rare.  It’s usually only one artist at lounge sessions like this.  Grace Potter and the Nocturnals played first and she blew everyone away with her voice.  She really has a unique beautiful voice and was very personable.  The pictures aren’t so great because they were taken with zee iPhone.

Her drummer was using aspirin bottles for shakers.  It was pretty amazing.

She was so sweet and took the time to meet everyone and hang out for a little bit.

The next band that showcased some of their latest album was Parachute.  The lead singer of this band also had an amazing voice.

Parachute and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals were so great.  It’s so amazing to hear really talented musicians sing their hearts out.  I can’t believe I am lucky enough to do it at work!
