What do Rolling Stones, Aerosmith & Current Grammy Nominee HIROSHIMA Have in Common?

dddddddddddddddddThey all have been making music in their original, respective bands for more than 30 years (HIROSHIMA TURNS 30 THIS YEAR!!)

Hey, everyone!

The GRAMMY Awards are less than two weeks away and with Sunday’s Golden Globes telecast (congrats Sandra, Meryl, Robert, Jr., and – how about Mo’Nique’s speech?!!! Whoa!), the awards season has officially begun!  I am so grateful to be able to work with some incredible musicians and when they reach the point of being acknowledged by their peers as GRAMMY Award nominees, it is the ultimate!  I’m working with a group that has reached two incredible milestones this year – pinnacles that not many groups ever experience.  HIROSHIMA is celebrating its 30th year of making music together and they’re celebrating as current GRAMMY Award nominees!  “Celebrating LEGACY: 30 Years of Making Music Heard ‘Round the World” sums up HIROSHIMA beautifully. I mean… 30 Years!!!  There aren’t many groups who can say the same, besides Rolling Stones and, say, Aerosmith!  So, check out HIROSHIMA– they currently are nominated for Best Pop Instrumental Album for their latest spectacular CD appropriately titled “LEGACY.”  They’re in great company in this category with Chris Botti, Spyro Gyra, Booker T. Jones and The Rippingtons.  Check out the official GRAMMY Web site here http://www.grammy.com/nominees?category=72 and scroll down to Best Pop Instrumental Album.  Get to know HIROSHIMA http://www.hiroshimamusic.com &ltt; .  You also can look at the online Press Kit that gives great insight into the souls that create music as diverse as their talents 
. Their music is incredible and the GRAMMY nomination is yet another part of their legacy. Besides, 30 is the new 20 so they’ve got a long, long career still ahead of them, as they focus on giving back and educating students on how they can learn from HIROSHIMA’s journey! Root them on when GRAMMY winners are announced Sunday, January 31 on CBS!  Thanks for checking them out and please Friend them on Facebook: http://tinyurl.com/HiroshimaFacebook and forward this so more people can experience the LEGACY of HIROSHIMA!
