ALL ACCESS sends a big thank you out to REPUBLIC RECORD's AMANDA DOBBINS, ARTIE GENTILE, and the entire label staff who welcomed the radio and music industry out to see a live performance at the world-famous TROUBADOUR night club in HOLLYWOOD by their newest rising stars US THE DUO on WEDNESDAY (5/21).
US THE DUO consists of MICHAEL and CARISSA RAE ALVARADO who met by chance when MICHAEL was helping his college roommate move to LOS ANGELES. The two fell in love and began collaborating on songs about their relationship together. They also began posting videos of their performances and several covers of their favorite new artists online and quickly went viral with over 24.5 million YOUTUBE views and three-million on VINE stemming from their honest songwriting and their distinctly blended harmonies.
The evening started off with a meet & greet at the PALM RESTAURANT where we had a chance to meet this talented and charming couple. We then migrated over to The TROUBADOUR where the stage was decorated with comfy living room furniture giving the show an intimate and open setting.
MICHAEL and CARISSA performed songs from their new album which tells the story of their relationship from beginning. The set included their new single "No Matter Where You Are" along with some select covers like CARLY RAE JEPSEN's song "Call Me Maybe" and some TV theme show tunes for their encore. Towards the end of the evening, they also made a video/selfie of the crowd which was quickly posted on THE VINE.
Some of the industry VIPs in attendance included KIIS/LOS ANGELES APD/MD BEATA CZECHOWSKI, KMXB/KXTE/SIN 107.5 HD2 PD CHARESE FRUGE', KBIG/LOS ANGELES' BRANDON BELL, WESTWOOD 1's JASON BOWERS, promo guy SCOTT EMERSON, and ALL ACCESS' LEAH ADAMS and MARK STRICKLAND.
