#EventSpeaks: Patent Pending @ The Haunt, Brighton – 04/04/16

Here’s our review of the incredibly talented, energetic and fun, Patent Pending’s show in Brighton.

On Monday 4th April 2016, I was given the great opportunity to see Patent Pending perform at The Haunt in Brighton, and they were “off da hook” incredible…as usual! The support was Boy Jumps Ship.


The VIP Treatment

I was lucky enough to attend the pre-show VIP experience which honours Patent Pending’s fans with a private, acoustic performance of some of their songs, alongside a meet and greet, photos with the band and even some free merchandise!

It was a unique experience and really does treat the fans to something extraordinary and rewarding! The band then hung around to chat to their devoted “Second Family” (Patent Pending’s fans) and really did make it an exceptional occasion – I was honoured to be a part of it and witness just how dedicated to their fans they are, as the fans are to them!


Boy Jumps Ship

This 4-piece took to the stage and warmed the crowd up a treat, performing a whole range of songs, including their recent single, Burn.

The quartet were powerful performers and took time to promote their upcoming debut album, Wake Up, which is released on April 22nd 2016!

Highlight: The powerful vocals of the lead singer and the great sound they’ve created!


Patent Pending

Where to start with Patent Pending…they’re just amazing!

Since discovering them, when they supported Zebrahead back in November 2015, I have been captivated by Patent Pending! They’re a huge amount of fun and their energy is just immense; it truly is on another level!

The band took to the stage with intensity, ‘Started In My Head’ which chants, “Here we, here we, here we f**king go!”, which had the crowd in the palm of their hands, instantly! They rolled, from there, straight into Let Go, which is just a huge amount of fun – especially when accompanied by Joe’s crazy-cool dancing! The show went on with hilarious moments, both old and new songs and even some emotional moments for Joe.

The Second Family are incredibly devoted too, to the point where some of them turned up in Mario, Princess Peach and Wario costumes and they are always part of the in-jokes and treated just like their name, a second family! One fan, Glen, was brought on stage for a song, which resulted in some hilarious consequences (see the video of ‘The Whisky, The Liar, The Thief’ below).

To tell you how awesome this band are live, is just an impossible task – they have to be seen to be fully appreciated! Coming from a relatively new fan of the band, knowing all their songs doesn’t matter, they just put on an amazing show and make you a part of their vision and their world, for the duration of their set.

This band has many things to offer live; good fun, great music, high energy, comedy, crazy dancing, Super Mario jumps and more! I urge anyone who hasn’t seen them, to do whatever it takes to get a ticket to a show…they’re just f**king AWESOME!

Highlights:

  • Joe’s ability to capture an audience with quick wit and crazy antics.
  • Joe’s awesome crowd swimming – complete with armbands and goggles!
  • Glen (a fan) coming on stage and attempting the Dirty Dancing lift…but in fact dropping Joe!
  • Rob and Marc doing some awesome dance routines!
  • Mario, Wario and Princess Peach on stage!
  • Joe’s awesome Mario jump!

Muzik Speaks: An Interview with Joe Ragosta from Patent Pending @ The Haunt, Brighton – 04/04/16

Here’s the incredible, live interview Matt did with Joe Ragosta from Patent Pending at The Haunt in Brighton on 4th April 2016.

Here is the live interview I did with Joe Ragosta from Patent Pending, backstage at The Haunt in Brighton, before their show.

As with our previous interview, Joe was hilarious and such a genuine person! Unfortunately towards the end of the interview, the support band (Boy Jumps Ship) began to play and so it becomes harder to hear – if you turn the volume down (and maybe wear headphones too) you can actually make it out a bit more clearly.

Most of these questions were submit by Patent Pending fans (aka Second Family), which means this truly is one for the fans!

Finally, I want to say a MASSIVE thanks to Joe and the rest of the band again for their time and dedication to work with us – I couldn’t be more grateful and appreciative!

Check out our review of the show, complete with videos!

It was only just over a week ago that I got the opportunity to interview Joe Ragosta from Patent Pending and now we’re back; this time for another interview with Race The Horizon (previously known as The Mend – notable for their time on Britain’s Got Talent)

The group have recently changed their name, recorded a cover of Justin Timberlake’s ‘Cry Me A River’ and now they’re in America hoping to meet some producers and maybe even look at signing some contracts.

The boys are enthusiastic about their upcoming adventures but were sceptical of playing ‘Would You Rather…?’ – and they should’ve been!

I hope you enjoy this interview and please go ahead and share the link on your social media accounts!

Elle King – ‘Ex’s & Oh’s’

Elle King is an alternative pop/pop rock/alternative rock singer who burst onto the scene with her debut single, ‘Ex’s & Oh’s’ back in September 2015.

Her song is about past relationships and the music video is rife with innuendo! The song itself received two nominations at the 58th Grammy AwardsBest Rock Performance and Best Rock Song and it’s clear to see why! It’s a massive tune!

Also, Joe Ragosta (from Patent Pending) recently revealed that this is one of his favourite songs right now, in his Skype interview with us, for Muzik Speaks.


‘Ex’s & Oh’s’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/exs-ohs/id941366731?i=941366737



Izzy Bizu – ‘White Tiger’

Izzy Bizu is a new, soulful pop singer from London, UK. To date she has released several singles and she was longlisted on BBC’s Sound Of 2016 list.

She is now gearing up to release her debut album, A Moment Of Madness, in May 2016 and judging by her releases so far, it’s set to be awesome!

#MuzikSpeaks: An Interview with Joe Ragosta from Patent Pending

This interview with Joe Ragosta from Patent Pending is HILARIOUS!


Like our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/muzikspeaks)

Follow us on Twitter (www.twitter.com/muzik_speaks)


It’s interview time again, and this time, it’s with the incredibly funny Joe Ragosta from Patent Pending.

Having released their most recent album (‘Riot Hearts Rebellion’) in 2015, the band are getting ready to tour the UK in April 2016.

I got the opportunity to do this Skype interview and loved every second of it – not only is Joe hilarious, but he was incredibly generous with his time, spending nearly an hour talking to me. As a result, I’ve split this interview into two parts, but it’s well worth the watch; the guy is a comedy genius!

We continued our interview tradition by playing ‘Would You Rather…?’ and Joe ended up flipping it onto me and asking me one heck of an ultimate question!

He also shared embarrassing stories, scary experiences and confessed to some unusual music tastes – any avid Patent Pending fan will not want to miss this!!!

I feel this is my best interview to date and really hope that you will enjoy watching it. I had the best time talking to Joe so please, please go on and share this link and video across your social media accounts and spread this hilarious interview!
