Milwaukee, WI – Lucas Robak is a behavior modification coach for Skillset Life Coaching LLC. As a life coach, Lucas hopes to bring motivation and inspiration to the world to find their passions in life and live their true definite purpose. As a life coach, Lucas works with his clients to determine what they want and uses Neuro-Linguistic Programming to help them break down any barriers they may have to meaningful change.
“When trying to consciously break a habit, depending upon the research you read, it will take 18-66 days before you accept the new behavior,” says Lucas. “What NLP does is it goes directly to the source of your behaviors, your subconscious.”
Lucas works with small business owners to help them improve their time management and organization as well as develop mission statements and goals to achieve what they want to achieve. He also offers academic life coaching to teenagers in high school to help them build the knowledge and skills to both succeed and excel.
“I want to be the person I wish I had in my life,” says Lucas.
In addition to working for Skillset Life Coaching, Lucas is also the founder of the Melody of Life Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping individuals and families living with Multiple Sclerosis to pay for treatments insurance does not cover. Though the foundation was initially established to help working families pay their children’s medical bills and deductibles, Lucas was recently diagnosed with MS and has since changed the charity to focus on individuals suffering from MS.
“I actually see it as a positive,” says Lucas. “For months people have told me I need a platform speech. Then one day six neurologists walk into my room and hand me my platform on a silver platter. As soon as they told me, my first thought was, ‘Finally I have a platform to speak from.’”
Jeff Antoniuk and The Jazz Update
Saxophonist Jeff Antoniuk is internationally respected as a jazz composer and musician. Now living in Annapolis, Maryland, the Canadian born artist appears on numerous recordings and has been consistently well received by critics.
With a master’s degree from the University of North Texas in jazz performance and West African ethnomusicology, Antoniuk spent a decade touring and recording with the Unified Jazz Ensemble. In 2004, he formed his own heavy hitting quartet, the Jazz Update.
The group celebrated the release of their first album together in 2007. Brimming with Antoniuk originals and luscious covers, the CD Here Today quickly climbed the jazz radio charts in the US and Canada and achieved stellar success in the world of high tech music sourced through high speed cable, Internet and broadband.
With the quartet’s 2010 album Brotherhood Antoniuk and company step out with fresh, memorable, and beautifully executed compositions. The progressive jazz disc delivers sophisticated and compelling rhythm, melody and harmony. Its global themes are brought home with depth and humor. Brotherhood began receiving significant airplay and advance sales even before the official release date.
Popular shows at Blues Alley, the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian and U Street clubs show the Jazz Update to be equally adept at live performance. The group surprises and satisfies wherever they perform.
Hailing from the "birth place of jazz",Vandell Andrew's destiny was not too hard to find. Vandell started studying music at the age of 13 at a local jazz summer camp in the treme area of New Orleans. It was then that he learned to play the trumpet. After a whole summer of playing the trumpet, Vandell was approached by one of his teachers that his embouchure would be better suited playing the saxophone.
Being that this teacher was the COOLEST sax player in the world, Vandell took this ultimatum as a compliment that his teacher would be even considering teaching him. Soon after learning to play the alto saxophone, Vandell joined the infamous St.Augustine "Marching 100" band. Playing in events and parades all over the world, convinced Vandell that this was what he wanted to do for a living after high school. Following high school, Vandell enrolled in music classes at Southern University at New Orleans, and studied with the legendary Edward "Kidd" Jordan. Shortly after about a month of studying with Kidd, the horrible hurricane Katrina took the city of New Orleans by storm. Vandell found himself relocating to Dallas,Tx. This experience was extremely hard to cope with at first , but Vandell began to like living in Dallas a little more, after checking out the music scene around town. Vandell began writing and working on his own solo compositions. This has led to him sharing stages with many local acts,at many different venues .As well as nationally known acts like Kirk Whalum, and Tom Braxton. This is only the beginning for this young entrepreneur, he is soon to record his debut album in the very near future.
Sedalia, CO – More than any other animal, horses share a deep connection with our humanity. Research has found the experiences people share with horses can be a true catalyst for change and healing.
Terri Mongait is a certified Equine Gestalt Coach and the founder of Begin Again Ranch (www.beginagainranch.com ) where she partners with her horses to help clients identify, accept and overcome their obstacles on the road to recovery.
“I came up with the name because I truly feel no matter what you’re going through or what you’ve been through you can close your eyes, take a deep breath and begin again,” says Mongait.
With Equine Gestalt, horses can be an active partner in the coaching and healing process. According to Mongait, because horses are naturally prey animals, their only means of survival is fight or flight; herd dynamics demand that they know what’s going on with every horse around them. This unique intuition also translates to people. If we are being inauthentic or incongruent they will know and they will let you know.
“When you’re working with a 1,200 lbs. animal, you learn pretty quickly,” says Mongait. “You know what you need to do. We’re just going to help you get there faster.”
Begin Again Ranch specializes in clients who are either in transition or navigating through a recovery. As a Gestalt coach, Mongait says she’s not attached to any outcome or agenda. Depending on the interaction between the horse and the client, Mongait’s training allows her to understand the client’s obstacles and how they can overcome them.
“Every session and every client is different,” says Mongait, “which is the real fun part of my job: I never know what’s going to happen.”
Jazz/Pop artist Pete Belasco began playing piano at a young age, later turning his concentration to saxophone. Both of his parents played piano as well. In high school, Belasco played in rock bands, but he soon became primarily interested in jazz and studied sax at Rutgers University and the Hartt Conservatory. He was also preparing a demo at the time, but was involved in a severe boating accident that broke both of his hands. For several months, he was unable to play, but in the interim he turned to composing and singing. In retrospect, Belasco has referred to the accident as a watershed experience because it forced him to develop his songwriting and singing skills. Belasco’s demo made its way to Verve Records, and A&R Executive, Guy Eckstine, who signed him. Upon healing, Belasco moved to New York to record his debut, Get It Together, which was released on Verve Forecast in the fall of 1997. The album was a concoction of influences such as, Marvin Gaye, the Beatles, and Curtis Mayfield, along with jazzy pop and lounge music cool. As Pete Belasco created the songs that would become his second album, Deeper, he kept returning to a common theme-intimacy. The grooves were sensual, relaxed, erotic. The lyrics were passionate, tender, generous. In a time of confusion and strife, Belasco wanted to sing about love, about faith, and about supporting one another. In a feature article in The Village Voice, music journalist James Hunter rhapsodizes about Belascos second effort
It’s one thing for a world class musician to write a book with a great title like “How To Make
Your Guitar Talk,” but Nils has gone further--living, embracing and even transcending those
words he once penned since becoming an instrumental sensation in 2005 with “Pacific Coast
The Munich born, Los Angeles
based guitarist’s breakthrough debut album on Baja/TSR Records was the most heavily played
track in the smooth jazz format over the past ten years with nearly 30,000 spins. The song was a
true phenomenon in its initial release, staying at #1 on the Radio & Records airplay chart for
more than 10 weeks on its way to being named the most played song in the U.S. and Canada for
the year since then the most played song of the decade .
Now Nils is back with a new release, Jazz Gems..Best of Nils, which will take us down memory lane and remind us as to why we love him and his extraordinary music.
He contributed as a musician and co-writer of “Keep Rollin’” on Benson’s 1998 album Standing
Together, and the guitar and vocal legend returned the favor by playing a duet with Nils on Nils’
1998 debut CD Blue Planet. He has also become a core part of many fans’ summer and fall
Miami, FL – In the heart of Miami Beach, Sally Drinkhouse and Nicole Pritchett are opening one of the coolest additions to the hottest city in Florida: ice bar and premier lounge Drinkhouse Fire and Ice, the first of its kind in South Florida, is set to open in the spring across from the Ritz-Carlton in South Beach.
Every inch of the bar will be made from ice, from the furniture to the art and even the drink glasses. However, one of the most notable features of the ice bar is its state of the art LED light system and energetic décor – selenite tables, crystals and photography by Peter Lik, one of the world’s most renowned landscape photographers.
“Selenite is a powerful crystal known for its ability to remove negativity from its surroundings,” says Drinkhouse.
The bar will also feature world-class ice sculptures and unique hand-carved pieces courtesy of award-winning ice sculptor David Berman.
"I think this city is ready for a truly unique entertainment experience," says Drinkhouse.
On the weekends the lounge will feature both locally and internationally-known DJ’s, as well as feature talented choreographers from around the world, like internet sensation Lady Casa, whose following is incomparable in the nightlife dance scene.
In addition to the Ice bar, Samadhi lounge, a ‘warm’ bar and elite speakeasy located within the ice bar, will feature unpretentious service, energetic décor, and the freshest ingredients mixed with the finest spirits to offer exceptional cocktails and an intimate, memorable experience.
The temperature inside the bar will be kept at a cool 23 degrees and guests will be supplied with faux fur-lined hooded capes and leather gloves to keep warm.

Saxophonist Richard Elliot has arrived at a very special anniversary for blowing audiences away with his soulfully robust playing. 2014 marks 30 years since the release of his debut solo album, Initial Approach (ITI – 1984), on which he stepped out showcasing his tenor sax, soprano sax, Lyricon and writing skills. What does a red-blooded Scottish sax man raised in Los Angeles – now with a wife and five children – do for a 30-year encore? Well, this one-time member of the classic soul band Tower of Power proves he’s “not a young man” and drops the most overtly sensual, romantic and intimate album of his career in collaboration with contemporary jazz production/guitar giant Paul Brown. The title of this 17th solo project is Lip Service (the artist’s first for Heads Up/Concord Music Group).
Over time, he became a part of that country’s scene of young rising jazz artists and freelance musicians, featured as both a singer and saxophonist. Lie toured Norway, Sweden, and Finland with different groups and appeared on the jazz shows of NRK, the Norwegian equivalent of the BBC. Lie was also a recipient of a grant from the Norwegian State Fund for Performing Artists.
Lie later decided to move to the U.S. since his favorite styles of music “were being created in this country 24/7 everywhere.” Loving the Southern California climate and being “a certified beach bum,” he chose L.A. as his new base. Since then he has been a jazz artist and freelance musician, performing in clubs and at festivals and concerts throughout the West Coast.
Toronto, Ontario – There’s a fundamental misconception in our modern culture that sex is strictly about sexual release or gratification. Indeed, nothing could be further from the truth.
Mary Anne Marlow, better known as “Dakini,” is the founder of Essential Elements of Tantra, a healing studio dedicated exclusively to intimate one-on-one healing touch. As Canada’s original temple for sexuality exploration, Essential Elements’ mission is to dispel sexual shame through education.
“Tantra is a meditation, yoga and lifestyle designed to awaken our highest energy, our sexual energy,” says Dakini. “I built this practice based solely on my belief in this system and this lifestyle.”
According to Dakini, Tantra is not really about sex, but rather embracing life itself. It’s about making life more vibrant, more colorful.
“People misunderstand the concept,” says Dakini. “They hear Tantra and think it’s something they “try.” But it’s much bigger than that. It’s a lifestyle. When we look at the elements that go into living a tantra lifestyle – exercising, nutrition, essentialist lifestyle, seductive art, listening and reading erotica poetry – it’s about stimulating all our senses toward vibration and true ecstasy.”
The brain is the biggest sex organ in the body, particularly in women. Dakini says the majority of her clients are male seekers who want to better understand their partner’s desires.
“When a seeker first comes in, they’re looking for a better understanding of their sexuality and a place where they can grow and evolve,” says Dakini. “When we bring Tantra into an intimate environment with our partners, it stimulates our sexual energy. We become more aware of each other’s vibrations. It’s arousing.”
