Chip "Funky" Thomas....you might know him as one of the drummers from Postmodern Jukebox. The project is called DV & Chipfunky

Speaking of PMJ band members, Scott Bradlee's college buddy, saxophonist Ben Golder Novick happened to bump into Dave Mathews at an airport back in April, and introduced himself.....

Then recently, PMJ were in the same city as Matthews, a few PMJer's went to go see him, he invited them backstage, then ended up calling Ben up to jam with him...even giving PMJ a shout out in his intro Cool

You may recall Haley attended a pre-Grammy party with John Burk.

He's mentioned here in an interview with Om’Mas Keith, a Grammy-winning producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. This was published 11 months ago.

Quote:Who else is on the (Grammys L.A. chapter) board with you?

On my board [there is] Sir Peter Asher – he’s a knight at the round table – Tyrese, Rodney Jerkins, Mike Clink, John Burk – he’s the president of the board [and] runs Concord Records – executive director Kelly Purcell, Booker T from Booker T and the MGs. This is a heavily elite board, man. With all due respect to all the other chapters in the nation, you’ll hear more often than not that the L.A. chapter is arguably the most prestigious chapter, so it’s even more of an honor to be there.

Quote:You mentioned working with Anderson .Paak, Kali Uchis and all these other amazing up-and-comers. How did you meet all of them?

Damn. You know? I don’t know. I don’t remember how I met Anderson, but all I know is that when I needed a band and when I needed a drummer for Sa-Ra, Anderson .Paak was there for me. When I needed somebody to just be down and help out Sa-Ra when we were trying to figure out what the f*** we were doing, Anderson .Paak was there for me. He was there for us.

Jacob Scesney was on The Voice Monday night. The guy gets around.
Jacob is going to have a long and full career. He's talented, he looks cool, and seems to be enjoyable to work with. And he's already making lots of connections. Must get a lot of referrals.

Only PMJ can bring together Puddles Pity Party and Haley Reinhart in one unique song remake!

Rumor has it Puddles will be competing on America's Got Talent on May 30th...
I think Big Mike might do pretty well.

Quote:Puddles Pity Party

I tried to do good by this song whilst doing my own thing. I felt like I was in the deep end of the pool.

Yeah, many of them in the last couple of months. Seems like he's now following the PMJ model of releasing videos on a regular basis. That combined with his upcoming AGT appearance are indications he's become serious about taking PPP to the next level.

Divan Du Monde (Paris)

Great to #reconnect with @haleyreinhart after randomly finding out she's performing in Paris tonight. Amazing as always!

He doesn't post to FB often, but he made this post in August 2016:

We had a great time hanging with Haley Reinhart after the show. What a talented girl!


I think that was a show featuring others that he directed.

Looks like after Haley performed at the Mix Summer Fix in Saginaw MI. He performed there too. Another pic:

Jackie Tohn, former Idol and Orchestra of People participant, has a recurring part in a new NetFlix series that airs in June.

Quote:Jackie Tohn grew up in the entertainment industry and understands the business — and she also understands that, right now, the business is being very good to her.

She worked last year on the film Sisters with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, wrapped up a Netflix film earlier this year playing late comedian Gilda Radner of Saturday Night Live fame, and is currently filming G.L.O.W., a series for Netflix with Orange is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan serving as executive producer.

Dude,” she says in a phone interview, letting the “u” flow for several beats. “It’s a cool time right now. I can’t say otherwise. I’ve been acting since I was a little kid, so I know what the slow years are and when it’s not going like this. I have this extra little seed of perspective where I’m like, ‘Whoa, dude, this is cool.’”

During her upcoming appearance at the Tryon Fine Arts Center, the former American Idol contestant says she plans to do one 45-minute set of her musical comedy show and another set of her singer/songwriter tunes and cover songs. Tohn’s lone day off recently had her walking to her local grocery store in Los Angeles. The almost-out-of-breath actor plopped down on someone’s stoop to talk to Bold Life about her suddenly burgeoning career.

Fifteen-hour days are the norm on the set of G.L.O.W., based on the ’80s TV show of the same name: Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. She and the other actors spent four weeks in August learning to take back bumps, run the ring ropes, and execute basic maneuvers. The plan, she reveals, is to do many of the wrestling spots themselves, but have stuntwomen there to pull off the crazier moves.

“The hardest part has been getting over my fear,” she says. “I thought, ‘I can’t go from standing to fall flat on my back. That’s absurd. I’m going to fall five feet? That’s insane.’ Then they teach you how to do it right, where you take the impact evenly through your whole body, and you think, ‘I guess I am going to do it.’

“We start really small and get bigger and bigger … [doing] each small thing incrementally,” she explains. “By the time you need to do the big stuff, you know all of the pieces that go into it, so the fear dissipates.”

...When she gets rare time off, Tohn relaxes and watches TV. Amusingly, her show choices tend to be on the serious side.

“I love Dateline and Forensic Files,” she says. “In my life, all of my friends are stand-up comics or writers or actors. I’m in a super-funny community of humans. I’m on comedy shows and go to comedy shows all the time. I don’t want my escape to be what I do for a living.”
