Elvin Bishop comments, "I’ve enjoyed working with VenMundi on this project – they respect and understand what artists want. Not only was I able to do the show and stream it live from the Club Fox but now I’m able to get the Video on Demand (VOD) of the performance to my fans!"
Bishop’s December concert marked a world-wide first when VenMundi broke down geographic barriers making this rare show available to fans around the globe by streaming the concert live, and now on-demand, through venmundi.com . This was the first public demonstration of VenMundi’s patented capabilities.
VenMundi was created when software developer and entertainer Ron Parks was traveling in London, listening to Jazz artists in numerous clubs. He reflected on how great it was to hear the music and how sad it was that the world could not be there. With the new capabilities in streaming and technology, he wanted to provide a way for the artists to reach fans wherever they are, whenever they want it on their computers, home entertainment systems, tablets and mobile devices.
Ron Parks, VenMundi Founder explains, “VenMundi lets musicians reach their fans live and in-person and simultaneously via streaming video on the Internet with a level of visual quality and audio clarity rarely found online. Even better, fans can soon queue up concerts from their favorite artist’s on-demand so they get what they want, when and how they want it with uncompromised quality and an experience that is almost as good as being there.”
VenMundi.com is a portal, providing live and video on-demand content on the Internet for a price per event through laptops, Smartphones, tablets and home entertainment centers. Although the initial focus is on the entertainment industry, the possibilities are endless. VenMundi’s patented process includes the workflow and the documents that allow the artist, the venue and the viewer to participate in a VenMundi broadcast. We are the “easy button” for Artists, Venues and Fans.
Barbra Higgins, VenMundi President adds, “We launched our company with this great partnership with Elvin Bishop. He has a dedicated following around the world, as a result Elvin’s live performance at the Fox was sold out. But now through VenMundi’s platform and subsequent sales of the VOD, thousands more can enjoy the show where ever they like. Comments from our recent test events indicate patrons are excited to have access to the music they love from the artists they have followed for years when, where and how they want it through VenMundi’s high quality live and on-demand streaming capabilities.”
VenMundi’s patented process enables the uninterrupted transmission of the content, which by using our methodology is of the highest quality and manages the revenues and fan base in an efficient, accessible, easy-to-use format. Every aspect of the licensing and contractual complexities of the music and entertainment industry is addressed effectively. VenMundi is not only poised to be the de-facto destination for live entertainment on the web, but also the Internet equivalent of a lecture/seminar hall, auditorium, theater, stadium, fundraiser event, and much more. In addition, VenMundi will provide artists the opportunity to market their performances via VOD from the live shows. The full entire concert DVD will be made available for purchase on May 27th at the Santa Cruz Blues Festival and will be available in stores shortly thereafter.

Juno Award winning Canadian jazz singer Kellylee Evans will make her debut New York headlining performance at the Apollo Music Cafe on Friday, May 11, 2012, as part of the second annual Harlem Jazz Shines Festival, which runs from May 7-13, 2012.
New York, NY, April 12, 2012 - Juno Award winning Canadian jazz singer Kellylee Evans will make her debut New York headlining performance at the Apollo Music Cafe on Friday, May 11, 2012, as part of the second annual Harlem Jazz Shines Festival, which runs from May 7-13, 2012. Evans will be featuring material from her inspiring tribute to jazz icon Nina Simone, entitled NINA, which earned her a 2011 Juno Award for BEST JAZZ VOCAL ALBUM. Her show at the Apollo Music Cafe, which is located on the second floor of the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem, will start at 10:00 PM. Doors will open at 9 PM.
Evans, who was recently signed to Universal Music/France, and is recording material for her next CD, will be performing with a jazz trio of internationally renowned musicians including Francois Moutin on Acoustic Bass, Marvin Sewell on guitar, and Mark McClean on drums. Both Moutin and Sewell recorded NINA with Evans, (in Paris) and Moutin has performed with her several times in noted clubs and music festivals throughout France since the record was released last year.
The Harlem-wide jazz festival reunites the Festival's founding partners, the Apollo Theater, Harlem Stage and Jazzmobile, and focuses on the venues, music, and artists that were central to Harlem's cultural landscape from the 1920s through the 1970s and on contemporary jazz artists. Bringing both established and emerging artists to famed Harlem venues, the festival will pay tribute to Club Harlem, Clark Monroe's Uptown House, Havana San Juan Club, Small's Paradise, Minton's Playhouse, Showman's Cafe, Park Palace, Lenox Lounge and the Apollo Theater. In addition to concerts at Jazz Shrines, other Festival events will take place at Harlem Stage Gatehouse, Columbia University and a variety of locations throughout the Harlem area.
Designed to draw a diverse audience of neighborhood residents, New Yorkers and tourists, all events are offered at the affordable price of $10, and tickets for many of the Harlem Jazz Shrines Festival events are available now. Concerts are scheduled to allow people the option of attending several events each day, continuing the tradition of non-stop jazz throughout Harlem. For tickets and more information on the Festival and its partners, visit the Harlem Jazz Shrines' web site at Harlemjazzshrines.org and/or the organizations' web sites at apollotheater.org, harlemstage.org and www.jazzmobile.org.
NINA (released by Plus Loin Records in France and Canada) is Kellylee Evan’s third solo release. She independently released GOOD GIRL (2008) and FIGHT OR FLIGHT? (That earned a Juno Nomination in 2006). She drew early critical-acclaim for capturing second place at the prestigious Thelonius Monk International Jazz Vocal Competition, and has toured extensively throughout Canada. She has also performed in the US, France, Greece, and earlier this year performed at the Festival International de Jazz de Port-au-Prince in Haiti.

Almost $350,000 cash on hand
Greenwood Village, CO, April 11, 2012 - In a sign of increasing momentum, the Joe Miklosi for Congress campaign announced today that it has posted its strongest fundraising quarter yet for the 2012 election cycle.
Contributions over the last three months of $235,174 have brought the campaign’s total raised to more than $474,000. Miklosi has seen a dramatic surge in donor activity since clearing the primary field in the new 6th congressional district six weeks ago. The campaign reports over 2000 donors in the first quarter including 1,965 from individual contributors.
“As we head into this election, I am grateful to have the active involvement of so many individuals in our campaign,” said Miklosi. “I believe it’s because they fully understand that we are fighting for the future of our country.”
Miklosi has been focused on incumbent Mike Coffman’s voting record. Coffman supports the Ryan budget which ends Medicare as we know it; the Blunt amendment which allows employers to determine whether your health insurance provides coverage for contraception and other items; and the Colorado Personhood amendment which outlaws abortion even in the case of rape, incest or the health of the mother.
As a result, grassroots and online donors continue to be a strong source of support. In the first quarter 2012, more than 2,000 supporters contributed to the Miklosi campaign, with an average contribution of $80.
“We’ve only had the field to ourselves for six weeks this quarter so this represents tremendous growth. This is a broad base of support that grows stronger every day, I’m confident we will have the resources we need to win in November,” said campaign finance director Joe Livoti. “And we’re just getting started.”
