Talking ’90s nostalgia, music and minivans with Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath


Robb D. Cohen/Invision/AP Mark McGrath is taking over the Flamingo this weekend.

Thursday, June 22, 2017|2 a.m.

. At 49 years old, Mark McGrath isn’t the rock ‘n roll wild child he as soon as was when his band, Sugar Ray, was topping the charts with catchy, summer hits like “Fly,” “Someday” and “Every Morning.” He remains hectic touring and making somewhat insane TELEVISION and film looks– he was in 2 Sharknado flicks– however he discovers the balance as a married man now.

“It’s amusing, we were a band from Newport Beach, I matured on beaches, we relocated to L.A. and got signed, and now I’ve wound up doing the important things the more youthful me would never ever do,” says McGrath. “First is leave L.A., due to the fact that I live in the valley and I own a minivan. That’s the double whammy. I don’t know who I am anymore. When you have kids, life has to do with where you can get some little edges here and there. And you know, minivan. Minivans were established by moms and dads, not by Lil Yachty.”

McGrath has a various double whammy in store for Las Vegas this weekend, when he hosts the wild Day Beats pool celebration at the Flamingo’s Go Swimming pool on Saturday, June 24, prior to his accomplices in Sugar Ray join him for a nighttime performance at the swimming pool on Sunday. (Find details for both events here.) We consulted with him from his minivan in the valley as he got ready for both.

The Go Pool is a natural fit for you and Sugar Ray. It’s a no-nonsense, come-as-you-are type of celebration. I feel really fortunate. They called us and it was like, obviously, Sugar Ray poolside in the summertime with some cocktails? We simply work out together. And can be found in early to make an additional appearance? I ‘d like to. There’s absolutely nothing I enjoy more than shaking hands with the loved ones who assisted the band become what it is.

You’ve been a regular Vegas visitor for many years, both to perform with the band and for other events. In the ’90s when it was all taking place, Vegas was truly beginning to occur as a must-have spot on your touring itinerary. There wasn’t as lots of venues in Vegas then. It really took shape. And whether it was for company or enjoyable, I definitely have some stories that are best left in Vegas. I’ve cooled down considerably given that I used to make the gossip pages, however I’ve most likely had more enjoyable than a lot of.

You’re likewise headlining the current version of the I Love the ’90s Tour, which will bring you back to town in September. Yes. Years ago I put together Under the Sun, which was [comparable] with conventional rock acts and bands of that period, Smash Mount and Gin Blossoms and Blues Traveler and Vertical Horizon. Then they put this together, I Love the ’90s, and it has actually been offering out arenas.

I Love the ’90s has more hip-hop acts and less rock. Hip-hop, pop, R&B, it was all one thing in the ’90s. If you paid attention to pop radio then you would hear Blink-182 and Mariah Carey, Naughty by Nature and Sugar Ray. So the audience is not any different from the Sugar Ray audience. A lot of songs have a sort of hip-hop foundation anyhow, so I have actually constantly felt comfy together with those big acts from that period. It’s been a great deal of fun.

Have you thought about bringing back your Under the Sun trip? It’s constantly in my back pocket. It achieved success, it was just a huge endeavor. It’s good to be simply an entertainer and not the one who makes it all go around. I’m thinking of ways to do it more effectively, and possibly incorporating other acts besides the mid ’90s alt-rock things, some other genres.

Exactly what is it about ’90s music that has ended up being so popular again recently? It’s extremely basic. It occurs every 15 or 20 years. Fond memories kicks in, people become parents, and the stink of that generation goes away. The ’90s took a lot longer due to the fact that at that time, the market imploded, and there weren’t many bands filling in. Fond memories is really effective. It’s summer seasons and your first kiss and “Fly” was on in the background. Or beach trips with the household and Smash Mouth’s “All Star” was the soundtrack. The tune my kids ever sang was Neon Trees’ “Animal,” which tune will now always be a huge part of my life, constantly.

Exactly what’s next for you, more music stuff or more TELEVISION stuff? I simply take it as it comes. I have actually been doing a great deal of acting and I simply did a Christmas motion picture for Amazon. I have actually gotten these additional skills doing hosting gigs for Extra TELEVISION and I’ve had this sort of tacky acting profession, however it’s a great deal of enjoyable and I’m always up for it. I’m also hosting a radio program on Sirius XM every weekend, just 2 hours of music with a theme. But performing live is what keeps the food on the table and the lights on in your house, and I’ve been fortunate. Those [hit] tunes have actually been great to me.

Are you owning the minivan to Las Vegas? Exactly what’s amusing is that we really fight over who owns the minivan. I may take a plane to Vegas but I’ll be having minivan dreams. If that’s not he most un-rock ‘n roll thing anyone ever said in an interview, I do not know what is.

Emerge Music Conference intends to join bands, fans and key market gamers in Las Vegas

November’s first-year Emerge Music + Impact Conference will showcase 100 music acts and cap participation at 10,000. And though founder Rehan Choudhry intends to grow the crowd as large as 100,000 for future editions, he swears the musical lineup will never cross the century mark.

“South by Southwest, CMJ [Music Marathon] and other comparable conferences have lineups of 2,000 or 3,000 artists, however if you said you were showcasing the leading pizzas on the planet and you had 3,000 different kinds of pizza, you’re not simply showcasing the best,” states Choudhry, former home entertainment director at the Cosmopolitan and founder of the Life Is Lovely celebration. “We believe that by scheduling 100 artists, we can state: These are the very best emerging artists you must be paying attention to, since they’re going to truly matter in the next 18 to 24 months.”

From November 16-18, Emerge will place those 100 acts, in addition to 30 speakers, throughout phases on and near the Las Vegas Strip– spots like Brooklyn Bowl, the Joint and Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel and Caesars Palace’s Absinthe Camping tent and Cleopatra’s Barge– for exactly what Choudhry calls a “well-rounded experience” for musicians and guests within and outside the music market.

“My disappointment with existing conferences is that you need to pick,” he states. “Do I listen to a speech today or a lot of bands? All our showcases will consist of live music and knowing. You go in and get everything you need in one place.”

Tickets for Emerge go on sale Thursday, June 22 at 10 a.m. through emergelv.com. Three-day general admission passes will cost $195 for 60 days before increasing to $225 and ultimately $250; VIP passes, which offer the very same gain access to as GA however likewise featured unrestricted drinks, will sell for $425; and Industry VIP passes, which give holders use of working lounges on website, will be priced at $485.

There’s an added incentive to buy early: For the first 2 Days, GA passes will be two-for-one, dropping the rate per ticket under $100 before charges.

On Tuesday, Emerge revealed the very first of three batches of getting involved acts, including Bay Location singer K.Flay, Philly punks Beach Slang, LA garage attire L.A. Witch, North Carolina electronic artist Machinedrum, Pennsylvania folk-rocker Mondo Cozmo (aka Josh Ostrander), Chicago rapper Sir the Baptist, noisy Austin rockers Recurring Kid and two Las Vegas bands: punk trio Mercy Music and hip-hop/jazz combination The Lique.

They were chosen by a curation panel that consists of widely known artists Think of Dragons, Kaskade and ex-My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way; Matt Pinfield, long time host of MTV’s 120 Minutes; market heavyweights like Tom Windish of Paradigm Talent Firm and former Warner Bros. Records CEO Rob Cavallo; and such Vegas kingpins as Brooklyn Bowl owner Peter Shapiro and Live Country Las Vegas President Kurt Melien. With help from partnering Spotify– which is providing information about bands’ real-time popularity– that group has been hectic selecting acts poised to reach the next level, Emerge talent buyer Mike Henry states.

“From filthy little punk bands to hip-hop MCs, they all desire the very same thing: access. They desire access to market, access to a show that matters, access to an audience that matters,” Henry says. “They play since this is exactly what they feel they were put on this world to do, and they want to be able to do it without having 2 other tasks.”

Validated speakers include artist females’s rights activist Madame Ghandi; Nusrat Durrani, founder of MTV World; visual artist Miru Kim; and user interface designer Aza Raskin. “We desire Emerge to be anchored in socially relevant styles,” Choudry says. “All the shows we’re presenting is extremely anchored worldwide of today and the world we are trying to form for tomorrow.”

Talking Prince, the Revolution and commemorating the music with Wendy Melvoin


Nancy Bundt The reunited Transformation brings Prince’s beloved music to Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on June 21.

here). We caught up with Melvoin for a discussion about the music and the memories behind Prince and the Revolution.

The tour has been getting a great deal of attention, however how’s it opting for you and the band? It’s been going extremely well. In the beginning, when we were rehearsing in Minneapolis in a warehouse working out the kinks, it was like, Wow, are we going to be able to keep this going? Can we do this? A couple of those practice sessions were pretty damn sketchy, I got ta tell you. However after the first [tour] show we performed in Chicago, nevertheless cheese-ball it may sound, it resembled using an old comfy shoe. And now more than a month in, it’s much more comfy. Everyone in the band is feeling more settled. We’re really aiming to make a point to let the fans know that this has to do with providing these songs back to them, since no artist will ever be him, and no one in our band will ever attempt to be him. And we understand the only way for fans to reconcile his loss is to own these tunes, so we want everyone to come and sing. We’ll be your band.

You have actually been bringing out various visitors to sing different songs throughout the show. Yeah, we’ll have a couple visitors come out. It’s simply great to have other artists that love him come out and share what it is they like about Prince. We had Bilal come out [for a performance], and he done a tribute at Carnegie Hall singing “Sister,” and it was an entirely various arrangement of the tune but it was so deeply touching. He turned it into his own pathos in such a way I’ve never heard anyone do [Prince’s] work before. To head out and play these songs is to recognize how significant this music was to individuals, due to the fact that the Revolution belonged to a period where Prince became himself. We sort of seem like we can sort of offer some place for fans to land and browse their grief … we’re aiming to make sure we give the audience a location to artistically get their sensations out.

Robert Georgeff Wendy Melvoin You have actually likewise carried out with Stokley Williams, the singer from the R&B group Mint Condition. Is he pertaining to Vegas? Yes, and what a big surprise he was. I had never ever become aware of him or Mint Condition, however Bobby and Matt and Mark understood him and Prince liked him. Exactly what an enormous skill, and a really beautiful man. He has actually done an exceptional job of coming out and belonging of this in a manner that doesn’t remove from Prince, due to the fact that he’s so respectful of the material and the audience’s relationship to it. He’s not [like Prince] at all but Prince truly loved him because he’s so Stokley, and when he comes out and sings a few of these songs, it’s Stokley holding the hands of the audience, and that’s the whole idea of exactly what it is we’re doing.

Every musician I’ve consulted with in the last year fasts to raise Prince and talk about him and his music and effect. Everyone has such an emotional connection to his work. Do the performances with the Transformation continue to be consistently emotional, or have you moved into a different area at this point? The majority of the time it’s not a full-on boo-hoo through the whole thing, but there are moments when the 5 of us take a look at each other and go, Wow, where is he? A program hasn’t gone by without some heavy minutes, that is for sure. We are wearing the pain of our loss a little bit more responsibly now; it doesn’t appear quite as unpleasant. We’re not playing in a puddle of tears, however there are minutes that are hard, and you can tell when the audience reacts in a certain method. There are minutes during “Purple Rain,” due to the fact that it’s such a legendary piece of music, where people are crying and it impacts everyone on stage. However it’s not a disappointment, it’s more recovery and relief.

You’ve done a lot because your original days with the Transformation. Existed a time in your profession when you wished to distance yourself from that notoriety? I never made a mindful choice to distance myself from the Revolution. It was a difficult time for everybody to be apart and it’s been several years, but we tried often times to obtain [together] and get off the ground, and it was close to occurring before [Prince] died. However I needed the time far from them. I’ve ended up being a skilled artist in the years I have actually been away and it’s just helped exactly what we’re doing now. I’m a much better player than I was on Purple Rain by a thousand percent. Bring the weight of those [guitar] solos and specific vocals is not an issue for me.

The factor we are out here now is since he passed away and we had to be together. We simply wished to be together. There are a great deal of people out there who are really mad at us due to the fact that we’re out here, and we don’t have the whole Paisley Park family involved. But this is our form of grief, to be together and do this. I comprehend their anger but this is how we browse through this loss.

Exists a tune that you are enjoying a lot more now than you ever did prior to? “America.” We composed that tune together. There is such a various meaning now with what is taking place in the world today, so when we play, it has a various energy. It would be intense no matter what, however it is fiercer now, and it feels conveniently owned by us on stage.

The most memorable efficiencies at the 2017 Signboard Music Awards

Drake kisses presenter Kate Beckinsale's hand as he walks on stage to accepts the award for top male artist at the Billboard Music Awards at the T-Mobile Arena on Sunday, May 21, 2017, in Las Vegas. (Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP) Release slideshow”It was Drake’s night at the 2017 Signboard Music Awards on Sunday at T-Mobile Arena, where the hip-hop star exceeded Adele as the most significant single-year winner ever with 13 awards– consisting of Leading Artist, the biggest reward. His efficiency was one to keep in mind, also, providing “Gyalchester” from existing album More Life from a floating phase in the Fountains of Bellagio, backed by plenty of pyrotechnics.

It might have looked like Drake bolted from grabbing awards onstage to his Bellagio program, but the performance (broadcast about 7:05 p.m. Vegas time) was actually pre-taped from the previous night. (Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran likewise “performed” at the BBMAS, both from their international trip stops.)

So which live acts were the most stunning face to face at T-Mobile? Here are our top 5.

1. Celine Dion The headliner of headliners wowed the crowd with a 20th anniversary performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic, triggering an arena-wide sing-along– even Miley Cyrus joined in. If you thought Celine’s gorgeous white ensemble and crystalline voice underneath that big, hovering chandelier was something amazing on TV, it was even much better up close.

2. Cher Celine’s fellow Vegas local performer Cher got the Icon Award at this year’s Billboards and took the chance to provide a little slice of her career-spanning production currently running at the Monte Carlo’s Park Theater. She dropped a super-disco version of “Believe” and followed it up with ’80s classic “If I Could Reverse Time,” complete with that ’80s traditional outfit. Anticipate a boost in ticket sales.

3. Nicki Minaj Boosted by appearances by hitmaking collaborators Lil Wayne, Jason Derulo and David Guetta, the best-selling female rapper of all time opened the show with an action-packed nine minutes of elaborate sets, athletic dancers and dominatrix-Catwoman gear, carrying out “No Scams,” “Light My Body Up,” “Swalla” and “Remorse in Your Tears.”

4. Lorde It took a little while for the otherwise excitable audience to obtain into the 20-year-old New Zealand-born alt-popper’s efficiency, which was skillfully created as an afterhours karaoke booth where Lorde read her own lyrics to new hit “Green Light.” But her positive energy won everybody over for what proved to be among the coolest efficiencies of the night.

5. Julia Michaels Instantly after dance-pop chart-toppers (and Las Vegas resident DJs) The Chainsmokers played their song “Young,” up-and-coming singer/songwriter Michaels took to the smaller sized flooring phase and made her significant performance debut with single “Concerns.” It was the only time all night the generally substantial Signboard award show managed to develop a more intimate feel, and Michaels’ distinct voice and design presented rather the contrast to the mainstage bombast.
