David Alan Grier was introduced to the music of Ella Fitzgerald by his parents and wore her albums out while in college. So with love, he returns to co-host the L.A. presentation of “100: The Apollo Theater Celebrates Ella’s 100 Birthday!” with Patti Austin, Ledisi and Monica Mancini Sept. 24 at the Ford Theatre. The evening’s producer, Gregg Field, was 24 when he toured as the jazz great’s drummer. He will perform with legendary musicians Shelly Berg, Nathan East and Brian Nova.
Since leaving her native West London, England, Estelle has ridden the wave of her vocal prowess through a myriad of genres while collaborating with a who’s who of iconic music makers. Now, the Grammy-winning R&B artist is tackling something new yet close to home — reggae. In advance of her forthcoming album, a single, “Love Like Ours” with Tarrus Riley has been released by VP Records. “It’s been a long time coming,” said the singer to Tasty Clips.
For Lisa Coleman, L.A.’s sixth annual Nightshift Labor Day Music Fest was something she could relate to. Not only was she playing in her hometown with surviving members of Prince’s most famous group, the Revolution; but as a television composer for series such as “Shades of Blue,” “Heroes” and “Nurse Jackie,” she’s quite familiar with burning the midnight oil. The event marked the end of the legendary band’s tribute tour — for now.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
