Big News!!!

February 1, 2007

So big news! I’ve finally finalized my touring band!!! They are so talented and we have so much fun together. They are: Marc Solomon on Guitar, Corey Duke on Drums and Kevin Johnson playing Bass Guitar. I can’t wait for all you fans to meet them! And don’t worry… you will!

A “LIVE” CONCERT
My band and I went to go and see the band “Live” the other night at “Revolution” in Fort Lauderdale. It was an awesome show and I really admired the lead singer Ed. He has a great stage presence and really gets the crowd engaged in his performances. That is my goal as a performer and by watching other artist’s strengths and weaknesses, I find ways to improve my own skills.

If you’ve never heard of Live they’re a great band. Check them out at www.friendsoflive.com

THE YEAR AHEAD
So 2007 is here and has been for a month… It’s kind of hard to believe. 2006 went by so fast. This year is going to be a big year for me, my band and PIVOT Records with us doing tons of shows all over Florida. Our shows are really fun, interactive with the audience and conceptual to each song. That’s what you can expect when you come to a Dominique Vouk show!

Something that’s also coming up on the horizon that’s very exciting is that we, meaning (ZE BAND, Manager Gary Bosko, Film-Maker Eric Phillips, Me and 20 Buses filled with people with a common destination) will be going to Washington D.C. There, on March 17th, we will be supporting the troops getting out of Iraq, by protesting the war.

Some of you may be surprised, excited or even upset, to hear that I have a political side, but I do. The reason that I’m getting involved in this is because I want to see peace in the world. I may not know much about the history of politics… What happened when and to whom? I can’t list off our past presidents chronologically or tell you what was on the front page of today’s paper… But I’m smart enough to know that we are involved in an unjust war with Iraq, over oil, not freedom. And I don’t have to be intelligent to want people to live in peace together on earth, all that takes is heart.

So to get my feelings out there on this topic, I wrote a song called “The World Can’t Wait.” I found out about an organization called “World Can’t Wait” and their slogan, just really rang true for me. The world can’t wait. We’re running out of time. We need to take action or things are going to get really bad.

You can find lyrics to my new song in the MUSIC section of my website.

TIL NEXT TIME
Well again, I wish everyone a happy 2007! To all my fans, friends & family! Without you guys, music wouldn’t be so fun, because I love playing it for you.

I’m outa here for today… I’m exhausted. This is probably a good thing. It’s a tell-tale sign of working hard. lol.
