I wonder if Michael will ever come to Tupelo, MS... This is the bad thing about being
"transplanted in MS" after growing up in Nashville, TN... everything was there & working @ the Grand Ol Opry (in the back, which landed me great babysitting jobs.. LOL) but when they taped Midnight Special there I worked in the back also.. I guess that's why I later worked @ 2 sister radio stations, in Grenada, MS. STAR 92.3 (oldies) & in the same
bldg. was ROCK 102.3 (classic to today rock) & I was Able to put lots of Michael Boltin
music on the air waves! LOL
Now, living in Vardaman, (a mile & half from my grandchildren) in the "Sweet Potato Capital of the World" There's nothing here & I miss it but trying to see a concert.. Most of the time you have to go to Memphis, TN 2 1/2 hrs away, Tupelo is 50 miles away I've seen more in Tunica @ the casinos.. even further away. I truly hope he gets this way soon! LOL, & serious!
Hi Gail: Thank you for your last reply. I need to ask you, however, if you know what the email or phone # is for Montaigne Records. I can't ask my publisher to call Sony Records because they probably won't give him any information. Also, I would like to invite you to log on to Facebook and search for Nimbit music and look for BIG FISH MUSIC and listen to my Christmas song called "A CHRISTMAS GREETING" on RHONDA BLACSMITH'S Christmas album. You may also enjoy hearing one of my songs on THE DREAMERS album called, "BEING WITH YOU.' I believe you will really enjoy them and hopefully you will know I am not just some Hack writer. I have been writing songs for many years and I did not become a staff writer just because Chuck Tennin felt sorry for me. Thank you again for putting up with me. Sincerely, Billy O'Hara
Hi Gail: Thank you for your reply last week. Could you tell me who Chuck Tennen, my publisher, of Big Fish Music, could get in touch with Michael's label producer or Michael himself? I have a guaranteed hit song that Michael will move out of the room singing. Please reply soon so I can start the ball rolling.
I am a staff song writer working for a notable publishing company. I would like to submit a song to Michael so that he can hear it. I think it's a perfect song for him. I don't know how to reach him with it. Do you know any way that I can get the song to him or his producer? Please advise me.
Hi Gail, I've been given your name by someone who responded to a post that I made. I'm really keen to be able to contact Michael Ball's agent as I have an opportunity that I would like him to be aware of when he comes to Bournemouth on 24th May. I run a PR company and am working for Bournemouth Council on a really exciting project. Really grateful if you are able to help. Many thanks. Kate
I just dropped by to tell you that I am Lovin' this Book:)! He tells a great story! It's almost like being with them on the road! He mentioned that he opened for "Bob Segar" and "Leon Russell"....well if he came hear to Lou, Ky. I was there:)! If he would have been with "Bad Company" I would have been there too! I went to so many concerts back in the day with my friends! Fun times, til my Meg came along and the rest is just Icing on the cake!
People use to say why do you bring her to concerts? I would tell them I didn't have her to leave her at home, I had her to have Fun & make Memories together! So we always go alone! Which is just the way we like it! We can act crazy & have fun together:)! Know what I mean?
Fool's Game is Amazing! He should sing that on the road sometimes:)!
Hello Gail! I need your help! Can you bring in experience why there are no Meet & Greet maps on the Germany tour? I would be glad about an answer in the new year! Enjoy only the yule tide without work!!! I would be glad to hear from you!
Hi Gail, since the forum is so quiet today, I've checked out a few blogs, including the one pertaining to the Grammy vote. I just wanted to let you know that I'm taking the liberty of copying your post explaining a bit better the voting process, because everyone seems confused as we were about it. Take care sweetie and have a great day! Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie QC Canada :D
Hi Gail, I'm hoping you're well. I'm trying to navigate this forum though I've been on it several years. I did send a group message&I don't know if you got it or not. I know you're busy&all & that's cool. Now, I'm trying individual messages. Thanks girl for everything.
Hi Gail, I have a quick question for you: is there a reason why the Twitter contents doesn't appear on the main page any more? Just wondering. I noticed it a few weeks ago but didn't mention it because I thought it was momentary. That's it for now sweetie, take care and have a great week! Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
Hi Gail, I just read your comment on the "MB dates added part 2" thread and I wanted to ask you permission to repost it, if someone asks in the future, but then I thought: wouldn't it be simpler for you to add that comment to your initial post? This is the comment I'm talking about:
“You are going to find a number of things on the web and on band member's websites before I announce, or they end up in the Tour section here, or MB's official Facebook and I want to explain again why. Michael's management and tour people start setting things up and working with promoters and venues most times a long time before we hear about them. There are logistics that have to be worked out as well as schedules, deposits, agreements, etc that are all signed and ok'd before Michael's people consider them confirmed. The band member's may put them on their websites also before we do because they are given the dates while they are being worked on, so they will hold those dates in their busy schedules as well. A lot of the band do other gigs when they aren't with Michael so they are asking them to hold those dates. Promoters and venues sometimes post before all is confirmed on Michael's end as well because they want to get the word out and tickets sold but sometimes that works against them and most of us have seen that happen when a concert doesn't work out and tickets have to be refunded or taken down with no explanation. Most of the times the ones you find on websites of the venues or band member's sites do work out but because there is the chance they might not until all i's are dotted we don't post on the main page until it is!!”
I'm definitely keeping your comment, because you've explained it all so clearly and concisely: I don't think I could have said it better myself! :D Take care sweetie and have a great day. Big hugs, sincerely, Sylvie Qc Canada :D
