Bush Rocks at Saint Rocke

By | News | No Comments

Recently reunited British grunge rockers recently played at the sold-out reunion showcase at Saint Rocke last Friday night in Hermosa Beach. The hot, sweaty, hi-energy and intimate venue filled with Bushheads was in anticapation of the release of Bush’s first studio album in 10 years “Sea of Memories”. The set was a lengthy, well thought out mix of new music, unexpected covers and 90’s rock favorites. “The Sound of Winter” their new single is about the pain of longing for someone, Gavin Rossdale explains. Bush takes the song to a more modern sound with their production sounding cleaner than it might have been in the 90’s. The band have always had a taste for arty British rock; it’s nice to see that they have embraced that on their comeback album. If their show at Saint Rocke is any indication of their album and tour to come..we are in for a wild ride. Bush will tour in New York July 30, Chicago August 18th and Los Angeles August 20th.

In The Fast Lane with Redlight King

By | Music, News | No Comments

Mark Kasprzyk better known by his stage name Kazzer or Kaz, is a Canadian Juno Award nominated musician whose work ranges from Rap Rock to Alternative Rock. The singer-songwriter of Redlight King refused to take no for an answer when music business suits denied his request to sample Neil Young’s classic “Old Man” only to get Neil’s approval once he heard Kaz’s version. Now, with “Something for the Pain” Redlight King’s debut album, Kaz relives both his darkest days and the turn-around, when he clawed his way back to the light. The album is a latticework of rock and hip hop and conjures old school sound. ” I’m all about mixing the old sounds,” Kaz says, “and giving it that warm analog feel. There is sampling, hip hop grooves and beats, but I also wanted good old fashion meat and potatoes: bass, guitar and drums.” It helps that the album was recorded in the same studio whose alums include Jimi Hendrix, the Doors and yes, Neil Young. Redlight Kings is currently on their national tour.

A + For Tenth Anniversary of "Songs In A Minor"

By | Alicia keys, Music, News | No Comments

Xpeditious Unlimited was honored to be selected to ship Alicia Keys customized piano from Los Angeles to New York for her special performance at the Beacon Theatre to celebrate the tenth anniversary of her first studio album “Songs in A Minor”.  This shipment was an exciting production for the Xpeditious family. We had to pick up the road case for the customized grand piano, then deliver the road case and load in the grand piano into the road case.  The road case was brought to the Xpeditious warehouse where we had a team custom built a crate for the grand piano and then have the crate delivered to the airlines by 5pm to overnight the grand piano to New York.  Our New York City staff then proceeded to recover the crate, unpack the road case and deliver the piano to the Beacon Theatre.  Alicia Keys performed an incredible set including her own classics “Empire State of Mind”, “Fallin”, “A Womens Worth” and “No One”.  Once again Xpeditious get an A + when most freight carriers cant make the grade.

Plan B walked on the main stage at Glastonbury as the number three headliner behind R & B goddess Beyonce and pomp-tronica Pendulum. When asked if Plan B could create his own festival who would be on the line-up, he said “Jimi Hendrix, Prodigy, Cypress Hill and me obviously – I’d be headlining.”
