Sneak Peek at Blue October’s Upcoming Documentary

VH1 has posted a short clip from Blue October’s upcoming documentary. A lot of the clips are the same as the sneak peek that was included in the PledgeMusic campaign but there is some new footage included in this version. Every little clip we get from the documentary makes me more excited to see the whole thing. I know it is going to be a phenomenal journey.

Blue October’s Acoustic Performance for Utah’s X96

Last week when Blue October was here in Salt Lake for the quiet mind tour one of our local radio stations, X96, hosted an acoustic show at The Living Planet Aquarium. I was extremely lucky and got tickets to the event. When I say lucky, I mean it, there were only about 30 people there. It was so cool!

Justin, Ryan and Julian performed three songs- Into the Ocean (so appropriate for an aquarium!) Hate Me and one of their new songs, Light You Up.

Into the Ocean (love the little backstage bit at the beginning of this)

Hate Me

After they performed they signed posters and took pictures with the group.

Here’s my friend Misty and me with the guys.

You can see all pictures from the performance here. You should also check out their pictures from the concert later that evening. You can see those here.

Huge thanks to Anthony and X96 for this amazing opportunity!!

Music Monday: The Star Spangled Banner

Yesterday was Independence Day here in the US so I thought it would be appropriate to have today’s Music Monday be performances of our national anthem.

This is Justin singing the Star Spangled Banner at the Houston Texans Game on December 9, 2007. (Justin starts singing about 1:20)

 

Justin also performed the Star Spangled Banner at the St. Louis Blues Game on October 10, 2007. You can see that video here.

According to BlueOctoberCrew on Twitter Ryan performed the Star Spangled Banner at their concert in Atsugi. Video of that performance hasn’t surfaced yet so here’s a video of the song from the concert in New Braunfels, Texas on July 5, 2008.

Ryan also performed the Start Spangled Banner at the KMC Rockin’ 4th in Germany on July 4, 2009. You can video of that performance here. (Ryan plays the SSB at 7:55)

Today’s Music Monday is for my Mom, who is my best friend, and all those other amazing moms out there- thank you for all that you do!! I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Ryan Delahoussaye to teach at The Austin School for the Performing and Visual Arts

Ryan is supporting The Austin School for the Performing and Visual Arts in several different ways. He was present at the ribbon cutting ceremony for their new location on January 22nd. He will also be teaching there when not touring with Blue October.

Delahoussaye, co-founder of the internationally acclaimed rock band BLUE OCTOBER, was also present for this historic occasion, and will teach master classes for ASPVA between tours. He is a classically trained violinist, and his success is a testament to his education from HSPVA, a world-renown performing and visual art school in Houston. He stated, “Austin is such a culturally rich town, and ASPVA will definitely play an important role in grooming the next generation of artists.”
