VMS News: Relay for Life & SL: A Bit of History- Jallon Pizarro Reporting...

Relay for Life is the signature fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. 

The Relay for Life came into existence in the mid-1980’s. This wonderful and life changing idea was brought into fruition by Dr. Gordy Klatt; Klatt was a colorectal surgeon in Tacoma, Washington. 

The reasoning behind creating the Relay for Life events was to maximize and enhance the income of his American Cancer Society. The very first event that was held by Dr. Klatt was one in which he endured a rigorous twenty-four hours going around the track at Baker Stadium at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma for more than eighty-three miles. By the time it was all said and done he raised twenty-seven thousand dollars to go towards the battle against fighting cancer. Just months later he pulled together a small committee to plan the first team relay to be known only as the City of Destiny Classic Twenty-Four Hour Run Against Cancer. The story of the Relay For Life is one with a goal to raise money to fight cancer while having a great time with friends, family and perhaps new acquaintances. To unify neighborhood, community and even our world battling cancer while at the same time celebrating those of us that survived the fight while remembering those that did not during The Lumineria Ceremony.

VMS News: The Rockit Club: If the House is A Rockin'- Pen Dragon Reporting...

What do you do if you have years of experience performing live in SL? Plus a ton of friends who are top notch live performers, as well as too much club equipment just sitting in your inventory? Well, if you are Tricky Digfoot, you follow a dream and open a small, laid back and fun live venue!
The Rockit is that venue. After performing live and being involved in a large sim aimed at the SL music scene, he decided to step out of his comfort zone and open his own venue at which he and his friends would perform and he could book other great live shows.
"I've performed in SL for a  few years now with a group.  We owned a sim at one point but they kinda went to big for me. It was bit much with my busy RL. So anyway, I had a lot of club equipment in my inventory that was just collecting dust so to speak. So I decided to open a club on a smaller parcel and keep it simple and a little less stressful."

VMS News: The Harlem Speakeasy: Jazz With Class- Switchmutt Reporting...

Established in 2012 in Virtual Harlem, the Harlem Speakeasy had represented its name and lived up to expectations quite well. Unfortunately, the server had run into problems with costs and the owner; Jackie Lefko, wisely set the club up with a skybox soon after as a temporary measure. Ms. Lefko, as of March 2013, settled the popular club in the “Wynchester Hope Too” Sim and has made quite a name for itself among the cultured masses of visual and musical artists on SL.

      Upon entering the Harlem Speakeasy, I gathered my initial responses mentally, I had a sense of warmth, vibrancy, and expressiveness. The club was quite full of patrons that had much to say about the place, all were having a good time, not one complaint in sight, and on top of all of that, there was a live DJ by the name of Urban King. When I tried to reach him for an interview, he did not reply, but his music choices spoke for themselves. He kept soulful rhythms pulsing onward through the night as I sat and listened over by the beautiful wood-finish bar. The selection of drinks is very wide, and most are on the house with courtesy of the owner, there are many places to lounge, and even more space to dance and socialize. The club’s minimalistic, well-constructed interior gave it a jazz-hall feel mixed with a blues bar and the color highlights of a R&B establishment. While taking in all of these astounding decorations and colors, I then became engrossed into the music.

VMS News: The Bare Bones of It -- Fun, Music & People. (Interview with Bones Writer, creator and owner of TRAX)- Klarissa Huntress Reporting...

Nestled in the middle of a pretty sim is a unique and comprehensive source of live music promotion. This is TRAX, Live Music Resource Center.
TRAX owner and creator, Bones Writer, is a humble man who downplays his remarkable achievements both in Second Life and real life.  His idea for TRAX was to create and promote, “a level playing field where everyone has opportunity and there is no elitism, everybody getting an equal chance to promote and market themselves.”

Bones is a professional musician with thirty years experience in the music industry, as a session player for artists like Jimmy Crespo of Aerosmith, and Billy Idol, or in the thick of a current New York Rock Opera version of Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities.

VMS News: Saintess Larnia in her Own Words- Thiza Ember Reporting...

The Support
I do remember my first concert at JLC Live. Jay Hurikan gave me my first break, owner of Virtual Music Services! It was mainly acoustic musicians and lots of regular performances. I had totally planned to sing in Second Life - that was my reason for coming here. My music career here is 100% supported by various people and without them; my career wouldn’t be the same. The teams that help me are my manager Lingual Markus, my assistants Teagan Sapphire.

Owen Landar & Tilly Morgath. The massive support from my fan group Saintess Souls who come to many gigs of mine sometimes twice in the same day! It can be very stressful to manage yourself alone.
