Forgotten Song Music is about the collection of music that we travel with during our lifetime and how much it affects us while we journey on this melodic path. For many, the music that really touched our spirit over the years was not the mainstream music that was pushed through the airwaves relentlessly day after day; it was the music sought out in alternative locations on the airwaves, in local clubs and special events. That music was Jazz, R&B and the great sounds of Big Band.
Las Vegas has always been known as the entertainment capital of the world, but little is really known about the guys and gals behind the scenes who played for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Ella, BB King and the list goes on and on. With a little help from a lot of friends, that is all about to shift. Forgotten Songs Music will bring to light the many talented musicians and singers that performed in Las Vegas for the past 50 years. You will hear first-hand not only what it was like during that time but feel like you are in the room the night it all happened. We invite you to join us to listen to this wonderful story that is about to unfold. So, as ol’ blues eyes use to say, “The best is yet to come…”
The Deeper Meaning behind Forgotten Song Music
Deep within us all is a word or phrase, a chord or melody, a brush stroke or work of art that we’ve kept hidden until the Muse awakens us to express that memory – one we didn’t even realize we had. It is the “forgotten song” that we carry in our spirit from the moment that we are born, and we can experience it again only when we allow ourselves to express the music, poetry and art within us that demands to be released.
This experience cannot be taught or mimicked but is a part of our true essence, a place within us all that cannot be easily explained but felt. We get a glimpse of that when we bond with musicians, poets and artists that are tuned into their own true essence of creativity and their work resonates to the world in that brief connected moment It is then that the song is no longer forgotten but remembered, if only for a split second.
That grand celestial moment reflects what is essential and compelling about our connection to the arts and our own true identity. It is comforting to know that our “forgotten song” cannot be lost completely, merely just absent for a time. We have learned that a society cannot be sustainable without the influence of the arts and the honoring of all the “forgotten songs” of its people.
