GLOBAL TALENT LIST

Long

Heidi has been singing for over 15 years. Her repertoire consists of country to Soul, with a bit of Jazz and Latin thrown in for good measure. She has even been known to slip into a 60's outfit now and then.

Heidi was born into a musical family, even her mothers sewing machine was a singer!

Heidi started singing from an early age, singing with a hairbrush in front of the mirror dreaming of performing, but now Heidi has fulfilled her dream and is able to perform no longer in front of a mirror but in front of large or small audiences.

Heidi has sung in and out of Europe, from hotels, ships, clubs to concert halls.

Heidi’s experience in the music industry, has provided specialist corporate and wedding entertainment. Heidi can also supply a live band as well as a DJ on the night should you require, or just simply background music.

Heidi has just released COME ON IN:

The title of the new album from Heidi McCaffrey, and it's a very appropriate title, because it invites the listener to listen to a selection of brand new original songs sung by this charismatic and melodic singer-songwriter (and actor!) In the last couple of years, since the release of her Lee Lynch written single "What Ever Happened To My Angel" has become a much respected artiste receiving extensive airplay in Ireland, the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and country music radio stations all over Europe.

Prior to the release of her single, Heidi worked mostly in the UK, with occasional forays to faraway places like Singapore and South Africa, and of course, the Czech Republic where, incidentally, she has had a loyal following of concert goers since the early naughties!

In Ireland, Heidi's star is also very much on the rise, and it's a place she has always wanted to perform in. And did she start off there with bang!

On the 9th of September 2011 Heidi McCaffrey played her first ever Irish concert to a full house audience in the Town Hall Theatre in Galway. As Heidi said in an interview with Jimmy Higgins on Galway Bay FM "I have played all over the world, but the reception I received here in Galway was the best I will ever receive." But she was wrong! Because on the 18th February 2012 she returned to Galway's Town Hall Theatre to an even more rapturous response from the delighted audience.

As mentioned earlier "Come On In" is an album of all original country/country "n" Irish songs, written by Heidi, Lee Lynch, Marty Walsh, Walter Cunningham Steve and Martin Johnston, Phil Rynhart and Nick Harvey.

BUSINESS
The idea started with my mom’s persistence that I could be a face painter – I was resistant to the idea until my long-time friend convinced me that I COULD do it; so she and I looked into face painting together. I started face painting for my sons’ school PTA events about 20 years ago, and practiced on their friends and gradually got into doing street fairs.

With my mom’s constant encouragement for growth in the business, I established a business name, applied for a business license, obtained liability insurance, designed my first set of business cards, and from that day forward, it’s been continual growth and development of my skill level and services I offer. I get my inspiration from master face and body painters/ instructors in the industry.

We are the ultimate party band; ready for cultural affairs, community events, weddings, birthday parties, speakeasys, guerrilla art events and wild over the top anything goes shenanigans, contact us for details.

Roaring out of Brooklyn comes the Hungry March Band, NYC's legendary street brass march band in the anarchic style that has become their trademark . Put on your dancing shoes and break out the fancy threads because they’ve got a party going on - a blazing parade of flesh, blood, steel, brass and wood. They are the music of the people!

The Hungry March Band has earned a reputation for mythical revelry having performed at a huge variety of fine venues and celebrated events. Such planned and spontaneous performances have included guerilla art events, mermaid parades, rural raves, subway parties, eccentric weddings, community affairs, protests, high art events, the Staten Island Ferry, Brighton Beach Boardwalks, MOMA, Lincoln Center, steps of the NYC Post Office, playing themselves in the final scene of John Cameron Mitchell's recent film "Shortbus and many other forays into the territories of free spirit.

Our musical repertoire consists of original compositions written by band members as well as scores selected from our multi-cultural world community. These songs range from New Orleans street bands, European brass traditions, Gypsy/Roma classics, wedding brass bands from India, the jazz world and the global community of NYC. The band is an ever evolving musical experiment influenced and inspired from Brooklyn’s backyard with Latin flavor, punk rock noise, hip hop beats and music of the streets.

We have been featured in articles in the New York Times, The Village Voice, London Times, New York Post, Time Out New York, New York Press, Tokyo Times, various European publications and have countless mentions in blogs, various zines and web articles. We have appeared on several TV networks including Lifetime, CNN, New York One, march bys on the fly with ABC, NBC, CBS as well as appearances in several documentaries including an HMB feature Rockumentary, A Cat in a Bag.We are available to play festivals, parties, parades, community celebrations, conventions, birthdays, weddings, bar mitzvahs…and remain open to suggestion!

Our discography includes four self-produced CD’s.

The most recent, "Portable Soundtracks for Temporary Utopias," (produced by Grammy-winner Danny Blume, and co-produced by Matt Moran of Slavic Soul Party) presents a phenomenal collection of original songs as wild and eclectic as the band itself. The HMB specializes in surprise radical encounters that transform the mundane into the miraculous. "Portable Soundtracks for Temporary Utopias"" set the tempo for a week of hi-jinks & pranks, HMB's Seven Days of 23 minute Utopias, destined to explode in music and create utopias throughout New York City, resulted in widespread surprise and joy along with a few tickets for disturbing the peace, all of which were dismissed, as at the time the peace needed disturbing.

Our third release, “Critical Brass” was recorded at Loho Studios, NYC, in the Spring of 2004 merely days after returning from a very successful European tour. Our second release “On the Waterfront” (2003) was recorded in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and dedicated to the hallowed grounds upon which the tunes were wrought. The virgin debut, Hungry March Band Official Bootleg, (2001) consists of a series of live recordings and is considered an historical reference for exercises in wind, percussion and fluid dynamics

Please see our separate HMB performance list, which is always in need of updates as it is difficult to keep up with the tremendous volume of events.

HMB Pleasure Society and Second Line is an evolving extension of the band that adds so much spice to our parades and events, its participation in parade presentations features up to 75 performers who reflect the music with their vibrant dancing, baton twirling, fire spinning, hoola-hooping, gymnastics, stilt walking, and puppeteering.

Fear shall lead you to the place you most need to be. When you arrive, dive into the sea of the unknown, we will be there cheering you on, furiously playing in a state of absolute delightful madness.

A NYC DJ DADDY

Johnny's 2010 interview on FINN JOHANNSEN'S REWIND
Johnny's 2010 interview on the JONTY SKRUFFF BLOG

JOHNNY DYNELL is the New York City DJ, producer, songwriter, remixer and impresario who has been practicing his art and craft for more than two and a half decades. When Nina Hagen sang "AM/PM, Pyramid, Roxy, Mudd Club, Danceteria" in her 1983 classic "New York New York" she could have been describing Johnny's work week, as he played at them all. Beginning at the seminal Mudd Club in 1980, he also went on to residencies at Area, Boy Bar, Susanne Bartsch's Copacabana parties, The Limelight and weekend nights at the original Tunnel.

In 1983 while working at Danceteria, producer Kenton Nix and fellow DJ Mark Kamins (who had just produced Madonna's debut single) collaborated on Johnny's first record JAM HOT. This quirky, infectious ditty about Graffiti kids and break dancers was a radio breakout, cult classic and Dynell's first outing as a songwriter/artist. Its refrain "Tank, Fly Boss, Walk, Jam, Nitty Gritty / Talkin' 'bout the boys from the big bad city / this is Jam Hot" has been sampled in dozens of songs worldwide. In 2009 the term "Jam Hot" made it into the Urban Dictionary.

Throughout the 1980s Johnny continued to DJ around the world and record on Atlantic Records, collaborating with Arthur Baker, Malcolm Mc Laren, Larry Levan, Peter Rauhofer, Eric Kupper and David Morales. Dynell ended the decade in London recording "Elements Of Vogue", a cult classic that set the standard for all "Voguing" records to come. A longtime member of the House of Xtravaganza, JD continues to spin and write for the Voguing subculture in New York City, and a compilation of his "21st Century Voguing" tracks is due for a Summer 2011 release.

In 1990 Johnny and his wife Chi Chi Valenti opened their own nightclub Jackie 60, an influential underground party that ran for the entire decade, and evolved into the full-time Meat Market venue Mother. Although he continued to DJ at Jackie 60, his energy for the next ten years was totally devoted to running this long-running hit club and its many satellite nights and projects. These include the cyber-fetish experiment Click + Drag and the marathon Night Of 1000 Stevies (still going strong in 2011).

After the closing of Jackie 60 and Mother in 2000, Dynell found his way back to his first love - spinning - when he accepted a residency at Gotham's first new mega-club of the decade, Crobar, in 2003. His Saturday night following there for the next four years also inspired him to begin writing dance music again, including the Pink Martini hit "Una Notte a Napoli". As the Oughts ended, his residencies at gay dance club MR. BLACK and the uber-popular Vandam Sundays at Greenhouse found him back with a vengeance, and a sound described by Michael Musto as "Johnny Dynell's bracing mix of newish-old and oldish-new". Other 2009/2010 highlights included back to back Glammy Awards for Best DJ of the Year and remixing for artists including Scissor Sisters, Escandalo and the B-52's.

Also in 2010, a new generation discovered Johnny with the release of a Jam Hot/ Big Throwdown remix project on Smash Hit Records. This Nu Disco project, which spent three weeks at #1 on the Juno sales chart, featured remixers including Tensnake, 40 Thieves, Peter Rauhofer, Mark Kamins, Clouded Vision, Elija Rudman and of course, Johnny. Summer 2011 saw the launch of Dynell's own label, Endless Night Music, distributed by The Orchard, and its first release, "21st Century Vogue" (featuring Sade Pendavis, Paul Alexander, Jocelyn Brown and Princess Xtravaganza

2012 residencies include VANDAM @ GREENHOUSE (Sundays) and BASSMENT @ THE MONSTER (First Thursdays). Visit Johnny's LATEST NEWS link for all of his nights, shows and schedule.
