First off, I want to start by saying how appreciative I am of all the support I've received from all my friends, family, and "supporters" since Chantel (my manager/producer) and I began this crazy project. No one even knew what the hell Eat Travel Rock TV was, yet you all were on board. Well now it's here and it's LIVE on my site... Just click HERE for all the available episodes... yet you still may not know what the hell it is.
Eat Travel Rock TV came about from the frustration I had while working on other TV projects, coupled with my desire to put my specific brand on camera. I've had a vision of a show that fully integrates food, music, and travel in a unique and unexpected way. There is nothing like it on television, nor the internet (as far as I've seen... those interwebs are a mighty huge place). Plus I get to be ME! There are no network constrictions, nor producers/directors who don't share my vision and let me do what I want to do and act how I want to act.
Here are some examples of who you will meet along this journey: I interviewed Chase Rice at the Windy City Smokeout (music and food, baby!) I interviewed Love and Theft in Key West, FL (music and travel!) I had Ryan Chiaverini give me a guitar lesson in his home (unexpected music!) and I brought Down With Webster to Fulton Market Kitchen. We have launched 5 episodes today, and we will be releasing 1 episode each Wednesday.
No two episodes are alike, and I have MANY ideas for the future. Stay tuned for many bands, musicians, famous chefs, innovative restauranteurs, Chicago athletes, notable personalities etc. I plan to Eat a ton, Travel a bunch, and constantly rock out... so please join me on this journey. I truly hope you enjoy this labor of love and I welcome your thoughts, feedback, and requests. Thank you!!
