Pullman Standard is a power rock quartet based in North Hollywood, California that began 2008 and has matured into an award winning sound with fans across the U.S. With over 600 shows under its belt since 2011, the band has been recognized for their songwriting skills when their first full length album "Steam Powered Hearts" was acclaimed as "A HIT record" by famed producer Don Was. Their newest single “Static” was just released and we get to play it for you.
Allison Iraheta (“American Idol” Season 8 finalist) collaborated with producer and bassist / keyboardist Matthew Hager who worked with Duran Duran and other stars to form Halo Circus, recruiting drummer Veronica Bellino of Jeff Beck and guitarist Brian Stead. The band blows away crowds with infectious, unapologetic, bilingual alternative rock with seductive, powerhouse vocals and crowd-pleasing rhythms. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on its debut album due out in 2015 with Hager producing at 76 Steps Studios in LA.
Bill Pullman joins host Robin Milling celebrating the 5th Anniversary show of Let's Do Lunch! at Urbo in the heart of Times Square. Just a couple of blocks west, Bill is starring in The New Group's Sticks and Bones at The Pershing Square Signature Center Theater. The play by David Rabe focuses on the devastating toll war can take on a family, and how they deal with their son returning home from the war.
Bill tells Robin of his affinity to the military and the intensity of the play, sharing a dressing room with co-star Richard Chamberlain, and his affection for the rest of the cast featuring Holly Hunter, Ben Schnetzer, Raviv Ullman, Nadia Gan and Morocco Omari.
The conversation with Bill is always delightful, as we discussed everything from his musical family, his adventures in Norway as he's on his way to star in Othello, with his friend and director Stein Winge, his next bow on Broadway, and of course the sequel to Independence Day.
Lunch at Urbo (named for Urban Bohemian), a two-story restaurant featuring an eclectic menu and warm dining with open kitchens was a delicious Chef's Sushi Platter, Autumn Vegetable Bisque and Goat Cheese Ravioli. Urbo not only offers delicious cuisine, but is a great space for events, featuring live music upstairs. Visit http://urbonyc.com
Rebecca Tillet, assistant bar manager and wine lover, talks about what led her to the Hotel Pullman Paris Eiffel Tower and the process behind creating red and white wines.
Just steps away from the Eiffel Tower, the Hotel Pullman Paris Eiffel Tower has a prime location. Located within view of one of the world’s most iconic buildings, the newly renovated hotel offers easy access to many of the most notable parts of the French city. Joining us this week in Paris is the Chairman and CEO of Air France, Alexandre de Juniac, who discusses the airline’s business class and its vast improvements (including lay-flat seats and a new menu). Then we talk with Bruno Matheu, the Chief Officer of Long Haul Passenger Activity, who talks about the best flight routes that you would not expect.
Then, joining us at the hotel is Andrew Wigger, a Californian chef who recently moved to Paris to help the Frame restaurant develop its signature French-Californian infusion cuisine. He’s been missing Mexican food so much, he’s brought his own style of tacos to the menu! Check out all of this and more this week during Travel Today with Peter Greenberg from the Hotel Pullman Paris Eiffel Tower.
Host Robin Milling introduces singer/songwriter Maesa Pullman. Maesa started playing piano and writing songs when she was seven. She grew up in an artistic family whose roots go back to her grandfather who also played piano and sang. Her dad is an actor who's family sang folk songs, her mom is a dancer, and her brothers both play music. In fact her brother Louis plays drums with Maesa's band so when things get going in the Pullman household, she describes it as a 'soul jive.' On occasion her older brother Jack who plays banjo joins the family band, which Maesa cleverly christened, The Pull.
On her own Maesa's music is haunting with reflective lyrics; a poetic combination of folk, rock and soul steeped in Americana roots. When listening to some of her songs you can just imagine a horse and rider drifting on the plains. She's an old soul singing about the mysteries of life but her youthfulness shines through some of the darker themes.
Maesa performs her songs The Fall, Bells co-written with her cousin Rosa, and Nobody Can Tell joined by Jason Hiller on bass. The Fall has a music video in the works so stay tuned.
You can get Maesa's music @ www.maesa.bandcamp.com
