The Grammys: tribute, celebration, and controversy

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

The VIP clients we sent to the Grammy Awards must have had an amazing time (yes, we can get you tickets for next year’s ceremonies too – give us a call!).

Adele’s “Someone Like You” on accordion: oddly great!

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Since a friend sent us this accordion version of Adele’s “Someone Like You,” we haven’t been able to stop playing it around the office.

YouTuber Brynn Corbello doesn’t just let her accordion and voice loose on Adele, though: she’s got a bevy of covers, ranging from Trey Songz to Lady Gaga. Here’s one we particularly enjoyed, of Gaga’s “Paparazzi.”
