Of course there’re ‘real’ individuals behind VLS Entertainment’s ‘virtual’ performers. “The Spirit of Rock & Roll” Virtual and Holographic Avatar is based on the passion, talent and spirit of Pete Sarenana.
Pete is a die hard enthusiast of Rock & Roll music who wails like no body else on guitar and synergistically combines his sounds and talent with others in the Carry On Band. He personifies the “Spirit of Rock & Roll” that many of us have for ‘down and dirty’ Rock and Roll.
VLS Entertainments has started capturing the images, nuances and essence of “The Spirit of Rock & Roll” Avatar in Randy Martinez’s studio. Of course “The Spirit of Rock & Roll” Avatar will not be bound by terrestrial restraints. “The Spirit of Rock & Roll” will be able to change form and shape at will…at least at our will.
In the spirit of Rock and Roll, Pete brought his Carry On Band (Mark Prudeaux, Adam Ponce and Rik Cruz) together with some very special guest stars and performed for his wife’s, Kathy McNamara, birthday party. Kathy was enthusiastically dancing the night away. Playing from their amphitheater in Pete and Kathy’s backyard, the music blasted ‘til the early morning hours. (Pete also has a full on recording studio on premise.)
Attending Kathy’s birthday celebration were many interesting characters and celebrities, including: Lou Pizarro, star of TV’s, ‘Operation Repo’, Jerry Salas of El Chicano (who performed all evening), Rudy Esquivel of G&R Entertainment and VLS Entertainment, artist, Eileen Borgeson and music producer, Gerry Gallagher.
A holographic installation was also set up showcasing Rob Taylor’s full color holographic woman with fan, which, as usual, fascinated the partiers with her seductive movements.
As for me, besides celebrating Kathy’s birthday, I found the evening to be a much needed ‘blast from the past’ with driving loud, live music taking me to a period before Holography where I was full time involved with music, managing groups and producing concerts.
