My name is Pelman and I am a H-U-G-E live music fan. Since 1983 I've travelled through 11 countries and over 40 of the United States of America in my quest to see all the great concerts I can. From the Boston Garden to the Marquee Theatre (London). From The Royal Albert Hall to CBGB in NY. From JFK Stadium in Philadelphia to the Rhythm Room in Phoenix, Arizona. I've been to Strawberry Fields, walked across The Abbey Road, and explored the Chess Records building in downton Chicago. I have seen shows in some of the coolest concert halls in the world and visited some of the Mecas of music as we know it today. At first I was just going to the shows and groovin to the tunes. Then I started taking photographs. From there I started meeting some of the artists that have brought me years of music enjoyment. Finally I started interviewing these legends on video and filming them in concert. It all ended when I created The Music Beat. The Music Beat is a 30 minute TV show where I would film an artists in concert, interview the artist, and include peers and friends of the artist also interviewed discussing either the artist directly or a project then worked on. At the same time I often travel with my two sons Ian (9) and Thor (7). For me The Music Beat is a way to connect with the music I enjoy so much. Its also a way I can share this experience with my boys and fellow lovers of live music.
Some of the artists to have come on The Music Beat have been: BB King, Jack Bruce (Cream), Denny Laine (Paul McCartney & Wings), Donovan, Hubert Sumlin (Howling Wolf), Pinetop Perkins (Muddy Waters), Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Sonny Landrith, Blue Cheer, Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stone), America Hi Fi, Koko Taylor, Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions), Les Paul, Dick Dale, Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), Dave Mason (Traffic), Sam Lay (Bob Dylan & Howlin Wolf), Jourma (Jefferson Airplane & Hot Tuna), Steve Miller, George Thororgood, Guitar Shorty, Johnny Winter, ...and many more! 50 complete 30 minute episodes.
I shopped my show with many of the major networks. The response was great, but the offers were not. Not able to put out my show under these unbearable terms I was stopped cold in my tracks. Then some people I really respect in the music business suggested I really explore social media and networking and here we are your reading my story. My plan is to show the networks that people in the world have an interest in the music I grew up on as well as the new bands that are coming out today. I need to show them people are looking for a show like The Music Beat. If I can prove there is an audience for all this great music I know I can get The Music Beat on TV. Please follow the show and help make The Music Beat a weekly show on TV. I can't do this alone I need other like minded music fans. Thank you for looking around I hope you subscibe an watch what happens next on The Music Beat.
