STREET I AM TV LIVE Episode 9

In our first segment of episode 9 Street I Am TV LIVE Calvin Gold was out and agreed to an interview and performed 3 songs. When we got there he was just finishing a song from his up coming album as yet untitled.

You can hear the whole song “Superman”

After a bit of conversation and he reminds me his name is Calvin and not Elliot (I obviously have Elliot Gould on the brain) he performs “Stayin On the Line” another original composition.

He sends us on our way with a cover tune, “No Diggity”

You can reach Calvin Gold on Twitter @theCalvingold. Calvin Gold will be out and about in Los Angeles while he is recording here so give him a shout out on Twitter and find out where he will be next.

Our second performer in the live broadcast turned out to be a street preacher without portfolio. In other words no contact info was in view during the shooting. I would have asked him but I didn’t want to interrupt so if you know and you want us to tell people sind us a message on twitter or info@streetiam.com

One of the exciting and also frustrating things about showing up with your camera and doing a live broadcast is you never know what will happen. Well sometimes nothing happens. So because of the nothing factor we went to lunch and when we came back we shot a live segment after dark of Lisa Haagen who has just released he hew CD With Honey.  This is the Title song

STREET SMART VENICE BEACH BAND; HALLELUJAH by LEONARD COHEN

The day after the horrendous murder by a deranged man driving into the people on Venice beach that killed an Italian tourist on her honeymoon and injured 11 others, the Venice Beach band Street Smart inspires us with Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen.

Street Smart is lead with power and conviction by Peter Demian on guitar and vocal and features the world-class talent of world-famous Venice Beach street musician Nathan on the piano and Louie Garcia on drums.

\Peter Demian  hails from Canada and has been playing on Venice Beach for 25 years. On a good day he  will bring in somewhere in the neighborhood of of 60 to 80 dollars. In Ontario Canada when he first started out he played with Paul Shaffer now on the Letterman show and opened for many of the great pop bands of the 60’s and seventies such as the Who and others. He moved to the US living and playing in Detroit and Canada for a time before settling in Venice Beach and playing for visitors from all over the world.

Nathan is considered by many who know him to be a virtuoso possible genius who has been playing since early childhood and freely mixes classical jazz and rock almost simultaneously. He has played in many bands and done many gigs including a tour with the 60’s psychedelic rock band Iron Butterfly well known for their hit “In A Godda Da Vida”

Andrew Potter Fringe Festival Hollywood Interview

OK it’s 1980

So;

Where do you go when you graduate from the University of Rhode Island with a BA; major in English Lit; and you want to enjoy a profitable adventure?  Well if you are Andrew Potter you learn to juggle fire. Then you move to the city of San Francisco, CA, US, create the High Street Circus, work out some heart stopping routines with your college buddy, take up residence in a beer vat at the old Hamm’s (The Beer Refreshing) factory, get yourself on stage busking then travel the world.

Since most people these days or any other days, would not pursue that kind of road to high street, which interestingly enough is the name of Andrew Potter’s new stage production “The Road To High Street”, it makes a person want to ask; Who is Andrew Potter? And what kind of person would do that?

In this video interview recorded after one of his scheduled appearances at the Fringe Festival in Hollywood, we decided to seek the answers to questions not revealed in the theater production.Iru Streetiam Iru Streetiam

Now in the final stages of development, “The Road to High Street” is being fully realized as Andrew Potter takes the show across the nation.  If you would like to make your participation a part of the final production, then enjoy a unique audience experience at a theater near you.

Tickets still available for The Road To High Street at the P_1_i_2202462
