What’s up my locked in friends? 🙂 I hope you’re all healthy and using this time to catch up on the important things, like Tiger King 😛
So, in this video, I give you a quick and useful breakdown on how to get endorsements. Everything you need to know about who to ask for them, what they might want in return and how much gear to ask for.
What’s up guys? 🙂 I hope everyone is healthy and being safe. This virus has taken too many lives already, let’s not let it take any more!
Onto a different, more positive topic. As you can see up there, my second video is up and running. Thanks to my friend Orlin Nikolov for the awesome shot on the Enrique Iglesias C Stage in Sofia, Bulgaria.
This one is a little bit of a mind opener into my life and what it takes to be one of the, as my friend Nomad likes to say, “Career Musicians“. Sure, we have a blast and get to experience a lot of very cool stuff, but there’s a lot more to it. This is a short video that I hope you’ll enjoy 🙂

P.S. In case you missed it. I made a little tutorial for a “Smash Mouth” guitar solo. Check it out 🙂
Hey…Corona, ya know? Well, COVID-19 or not, I’ve decided to start sharing some experience tips from the music biz & touring world on the wonderful platform we all know and love – YouTube!

PLEASE…let me know what YOU want me to talk about or make vids about! I can’t wait to hear what you guys have in store for me.
I had the wonderful opportunity to be interviewed on a live TV show in Israel while I was there.
The show was Keshet’s Morning News With Niv Raskin.
My parents and family were super proud (I think) because they all knew the show and were happy for me.
They all said Niv seemed like a really nice guy and good interviewer…which he was 🙂
And so we’re the other hosts.
I’m super thankful to Dana Grotsky, who made me feel at home and comfortable since she knew me
from another interview we did for Guy Pines…who by the way, I hung with back stage and he’s a really nice dude 🙂
Anyway, here ya go…hope you know Hebrew 😉
If you don’t, find an Israeli friend for the translation 🙂
About a week ago, while we were backstage in Athens, Greece, I got asked to do a quick
interview for the show “Erev Tov with Guy Pines” (Good Evening with Guy Pines).
It’s an Israeli show that was around 20 years ago and still is.
It’s on every night and all about the latest and greatest entertainment in Israel.
Celebs, scandals, shows….everything the Israeli people want to see.
Of course, I was SUPER proud to chat with the Dana Grotsky and her awesome team.
It was just a snippet of the entire article which obviously was about my boss 🙂
Here’s the part pertaining to me. I’m really happy I got a chance to do it and can’t wait to perform
in front of 40-50K in Hayarkon Park on May 27th, 2018
I hope you enjoy it…PS…you might need a Hebrew to English translator 😉
Had a great show tonight in Miami with Enrique Iglesias.
The video above shows the live performance. We actually start playing “Duele El Corazon” at 3:11 if you wanna jump to it.
You can always follow me on Snapchat (@SeanHmusic) for extra backstage content.
Don’t forget to turn on the HD, the stage looked amazing!
So, I got this video for you fans and gear heads, and just people in general 🙂
It’s a time lapse FROM load in right up to our show intro and first song.
The video was shot in at Waterfest, Leach Ampitheater, Oshkosh, WI on 7.9.15
Do yourself a favor and hit the HD button 😉
* Main dude setting up keys and drums, the star of the vid – Robbie Cope
* Around 40 seconds in, you see Mike get very involved in his new rig, still working out some of the cool details that it can do!
* 1:05 – Jason comes out to help Robbie with tuning the new heads etc.
* 1:18 – Notice the guy (rigger I believe) climbing up the rope ladder onto the truss (on the left) to aim lighting at us 😛
(Couldn’t pay me enough to ever do that!)
* 1:28 – As they continue to set the lighting for the show we start first song for sound check.
* 1:36 – Second song for sound check!
* 1:42 – Third song for sound check 🙂
* 1:50 – Fade into DOORS JUST OPENED Cam! So, what you’re seeing is our drums on the right, covered. Randy’s drums
(Drummer for “Toad The Wet Sprocket“) on the left riser, where the keys were before (they are now on the floor in back
of the riser).
As people start to poor in, the local band “Sushi Roll” takes the stage with all the hits and nothing BUT the hits!
* 2:03 – “Tonic” takes the stage as people keep rolling in.
* 2:10 – Fade to stage change over between “Toad The Wet Sprocket” and the “Smash Mouth” stage. The crowd is READY to rock!
* 2:37 – Robbie starts the show after getting his cue from Blake Williams (Monitor Engineer) and Patrick Bojanic (FOH Engineer/TM etc.).
And, back to real time speed. If you’ve seen any of our shows in the last year and a half, you know this intro (created By Patrick Bojanic)
These mice aren’t doing it justice, this intro is BANGIN’!!!!
Only to be experienced correctly live and in person!
Then – 4:05 – “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”
What a GREAT show last night in O’Fallon, MO. By far the BEST crowd in the whole tour…so far 🙂
It was the 4th of July and they were there to celebrate Independence Day in all it’s glory.
I got this great footage from my #GoPro on my Bogner Shiva Amp last night and had to share it!
Little insider fun facts:
At about 2:15 I disappear…I actually got up on the drum and keyboard riser to hang with Jason and Michael.
Then, at 3:08, I got off our stage and went to hang with the Sign Language Interpreter in her area…she was
more than a little surprised 😛
At 4:18…I look at my tech Tyler and let him know I need guitar picks for the fans, to which he responds by giving me
a bag of them at 5:18 while taking my guitar from me.
There ya have it!
I encourage you to watch it in Hi res and listen with headphones to Patrick Bojanic’s great sound engineering!
So, last night we had a show in Pueblo, CO. Small town with a lot of hungry fans for good music.
It was a nice evening and I was trying to decide where to put the GoPro for the night…as you can see,
it ended up by bridge of my Swamp Ash Les Paul.
I also put a cam/mic up by the FOH sound booth in order to capture the great sounds Patrick Bojanic
was mixing for us.
At about 15 seconds in, I tried to pose for a little photo bombing…not sure if I made it into the picture
because I had to start playing 😛
Would love to see the pic if it’s out there!
Solo is at 1:37.
OK…enjoy….I gotta go get to sound check in Arvada, CO.
Have a great day.
