Top Chef

Top Chef

As we say goodbye to Summer and hello to Fall, we boldly move forward and bring to you with anticipation, our first ever issue featuring Top Chef/Culinary Industry Professionals. There’s never shortage of talent in this town, as we present you with delicious inspiring stories from the gourmet kitchens of Hollywood and beyond. This month’s cover story features celebrity Gourmet Raw Vegan Chef, Be*Live. Brian James Lucas was born with dental and gastrointestinal disorders that threatened his life during childhood. Later as an adult facing legal troubles, and without formal culinary education, his initial investment in a raw vegan restaurant gave him the opportunity to develop his innate skills, and eventually Lucas reinvented himself using the new social media technologies, building a following as a celebrity chef and a pioneer of the gourmet raw vegan movement. If you’re curious about Raw Cuisine you won’t want to miss this article! Next up is Nomi Shannon, a living pioneer of the modern Gourmet Raw Food movement. After a series of health complications, Nomi gradually became a full Raw Vegan. After graduating from college at the age of 40, she became an educator in body cleansing using the raw lifestyle and recipes. Now at age 73, she’s in the best shape of her life running her own successful online business and has earned awards and accolades from the Raw Vegan community for her work and groundbreaking cook books. For those health-conscious readers interested in switching to “Raw,” look for tips on how to best make this salubrious decision. This month we are also featuring Chef Sean McDuff, who dropped out of school at the age of 17, and quickly realized the value of education. He went on to complete his GED. Sean found an interest in cooking and continued his journey by enrolling in the Art Institute of Atlanta, where he would go on to study the culinary arts. By the age of 20, Sean was winning awards and working in some of the hottest kitchens in the Atlanta area. He then went on to found Live2EatWell, a meal delivery service that offers an opportunity for families to eat healthy, locally-sourced, prepared meals in an effort to improve their well-being. We encourage you to “Let them be your motivation!” SOHM remains a politics and gossip free publication with its focus on, Real People, Real Stories, from the Arts and Pop Culture Community who make a difference by giving back, and we are delighted to share their heart-felt stories with you. We will continue to provide the industry’s foremost creative meeting place with monthly showcases, news, opinions, analysis, and audience feedback.
Next issue will feature an emphasis on Top Humanitarians and Philanthropists. Look for exclusive interviews with some of the hardest working men in the industry.
We hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to your feedback and continued support!

Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez – Shine On Hollywood Magazine

Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez

Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez

Dear Readers:

HERE WE ARE. YEAR NUMBER THREE!
http://shineonhollywoodmagazine.com/shinejuly2015/web/flipviewerxpress.html

It’s been exciting and enlightening and a year more than I could have ever imagined. The outpouring of love and support from everyone, in the United States and beyond, has been overwhelming.

In celebration of our 3rd anniversary we are featuring two amazingly talented and beautiful human beings. On our cover is Nia Sanchez. She went from living in a homeless shelter with her mother as a young girl to winning one of the most coveted and respected titles, Miss USA. Her grace and beauty are apparent but her amazing soul is what inspired us. She continues to do volunteer work in the same homeless shelter where she lived as a small child along with other charitable work she does for causes that are dear to her. We were so grateful to have had the chance to interview Nia before she handed over her crown, just days ago, to the new Miss USA, Olivia Jordan of Oklahoma. We congratulate Olivia!

This issue also features another marvelously gifted spirit, Couturier Celebrity Designer, Sonia Eté. Her extraordinary professional journey has encompassed dressing celebrities like Jennifer Stallone, Tracy Danza, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, Coolio, designing luxury apparel, fine jewelry, embroidery, luxury leather goods, luxury pet accessories and owning a chain of fine-gems jewelry stores. In addition, understanding the need for Couture in the United States, Sonia brought French Couture education by founding the reputable Academy of Couture Art in Beverly Hills, with the mission to continue the Legend of Couture through training young creators. We hope you enjoy her insightful interview with us into the world of this extraordinary high-end fashion.

This last year was bursting with amazing stories of struggles and triumphs from successful artists in many disciplines. It’s incredible how many successful artists come from troubled childhoods. Our goal is to highlight their successes to encourage the rest of us to triumph over adversity and help the up-and-coming entertainment professionals find their way.

We have featured 24 industry professionals in the past year and have done our best to showcase celebrities you will easily recognize along with lesser known, yet equally successful entertainment personalities. They are all doing the good work and giving back to their communities.

With sadness also, we lose a loved one. Such was the case with my friend, Arlene Martel. A prolific and talented character actress known for her roles in Star Trek, The Twilight Zone, I Dream Of Jeannie and countless others on stage, screen and in film she was, above all, a kind and vibrant human being. As I spent time with her simply enjoying coffee or going to a movie together, I discovered a friend that never knew boundaries when it came to positive and encouraging words. It was a joy to honor her in our April 2015 edition.

We have also kept abreast of some of our all-time favorites, such as World-renowned artist, Cao Yong. He overcame soul-crushing adversities to become one of the most sought-after artists of our time. It has been wonderful to be able to present some of his beautiful artwork in various issues throughout this year.

We are dedicated to providing a positive, meaningful and educational experience and to inspire our readers with knowledge and information from creative, qualified industry professionals.

It has always been and will always continue to be my goal to use a variety of formats to spread the word about all the good that is happening in the entertainment industry. Not just in Hollywood, but around the world as well. We, at SOHM, feel like our readers are ready for the good news about celebrities and successful entertainment professionals and are across the globe.

We continue to present our Share Your Shine, Tell Your Story segment. If you or anyone you know is giving back to the Arts or Pop Culture Community or any great causes and would like to share your or their story with our readers, please do not hesitate to send us these important stories so we can share your shine with our readers.

Don’t forget that you can go back through these last three years and read any of the archived issues, see the stories and gain that much more insight into the entertainment and philanthropic businesses.

Lastly, I would like to take a moment to thank my staff. Their tireless efforts to bring the stories to you, the readers, make this magazine and all its parts what it is today. The interviews, entertainment reviews and all the other pieces that make up Shine On Hollywood Magazine are due to a group effort where we support, encourage and heap praise on each other for continued jobs that are exceedingly well done.

The upcoming August issue will feature an emphasis on the music industry. Look for exclusive interviews with leading industry professionals. We hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to your feedback and continued support!

I am excited about our fourth year and all that is in store for us and our readers!

Furthermore, our digital format has enabled an average of 27 million viewers in 60 countries throughout 2014 worldwide. This growth has been tremendous and continues to delight everyone that’s involved in assembling the publication.

The hard work in the features promoted, the layout of the magazine and the artistic quality that’s demonstrated every month, is a testament of the devotion we have, in offering you a publication nowhere to be seen on the market today.

In order to keep the integrity of our magazine beyond any attempt of manipulation from outside sources, we are asking for your support. We are asking for donations of any amount in order to keep SOHM alive and thriving!

Since the first day of operation, we have been on a shoe string budget and bartering with other companies to help us with the costs that are required for an online digital publication. After 3 years under our belt, the future and the success of Shine on Hollywood Magazine rests on the generosity of our faithful readers across the globe. We have made a difference by our sincere efforts in offering a unique publication where politics, gossip and prurient content are not included. The only focus SOHM has is to enlighten our readers to enjoy and come to a realization, the entertainment industry in Hollywood and worldwide is reflective of a spirit where talent is universal. Our reward through your contributions will continue the desire we all have, to make our magazine a force for good.

We encourage you to donate any sum to our beloved magazine.

Shine On Hollywood Magazine

Welcome to the December 2014 issue of Shine On Hollywood Magazine (SOHM)! As we attend the dazzling holiday parties and dinners here in Tinseltown, I want to pause and give thanks to all the good fortune we have here. From time to time, I am stopped on the street by a passerby who recognizes me from SOHM. They often tell me how much they enjoy the articles and how they appreciate the uplifting stories we share from Hollywood which avoids all the gossip and politics. These interactions, in turn, uplift me and makes me so grateful for all our loyal fan base so, from the bottom of my heart, THANK-YOU! I also feel so fortunate for the inspirational individuals whose stories we are able to share and this issue is no exception as we feature “Top Male Entertainment Professionals!” http://shineonhollywoodmagazine.com/shinenovdec2014/web/flipviewerxpress.html

This month’s cover story features the world renowned artist and humanitarian, Cao Yong, a man who truly paints from his heart. It has been said that to view one of his paintings is like getting lost in a beautiful and magical place. His life journey is remarkable and his paintings can’t help but to inspire you. His new work, “Peace” with a world-wide premier in China next month, embodies Cao’s desire to shine a light on the damage we are doing to our world and what we need to do to correct it.

The BOB Band

The BOB Band

The BOB Band

 

Members: Don Bailey, Brandon Turner, Kevin Saak, Tom Sweet, Mike Solle, Dierdre Kniffen

Prone to the fiery attitude of indie punk rockers and body surfers this music is a raw shot through the soul that’s not missing any bones of drunken amphetamine induced reality. These guys consciously hit farther into the raw cornering attitudes of rebellious country music. Their ‘matter of fact’ rockgrass style dawns the likes of ratrod jackets and Dead Kennedys shirts while footed up with Jack Purcells. Hailing from the Midwestern United States their evident diversity has taken them from performing melodies with Mickey Gilley to an all stage rock fury with Reverend Horton Heat and two international tours. A ‘UK’ fan described. “The Bob band has a lyrical skill of spinning a dark and twisting yarn with the raucous heavy playing and energy of a pub-brawl.” Noted by news journals to have “a live show of music passion so unexpected, it’s seen to be harmoniously epic.” Maverick Magazine Europe described them as “an outfit that knows how to balance energetic songs with emotionally created tunes which impress continually. They are a song writing gem.”
___________________________________________________

Formed by singer/songwriter Don Bailey in an abandoned train depot in Millstadt, Illinois in 1994. They released their first 10 song album(Earl) on compact disk a year later(1995). The second album, a six song EP(Black) was released on compact disk in 1998. Opening an original music venue in Belleville, Illinois using proceeds from album sales, Bailey and the band took ten years off from recording and only performed live shows at venues across the midwest. Bailey returned to the studio in 2009 and began writing the 3rd release(Greasy Side Down) It was originally intended to be a ‘backporch” solo style recording. The band caught wind of it after Baileys’ tracks had already been recorded. They joined in, recorded parts over Baileys’ original recordings and the album was released in 2010. The excitement of the new material brought Bailey together with Brandon Turner(bass) Kevin Saak(drums) and Jon Clark(guitar) to record the forth album ‘Time Served’ released December 11th, 2012.
____________________________________________________

The BOB Band-GREASY SIDE DOWN
Europe’s Maverick Magazine Review – July 2011
Releasing their third album, this four-piece band certainly knows how to create a well produced song that can only be described as awesome. This thirteen song record shows to the world that this Illinois band are steeped in country music history and their musical veins are saturated with, what I suspect, is many bottles of Southern Bourbon. The record does not always go for the jugular as this outfit knows how to balance energetic songs with emotionally created tunes which impress continually. As its title suggests, the stomping beat on Pickin Flowers allows for impressive guitar to be used in the mix. The same wondrous spirit can be linked with Black Hat which is the concluding track. With sublime guitar on this tune with the inclusion of a fine lap steel helps sum up this record perfectly as its care-free attitude is refreshing good.
-Russell Hill – Maverick Magazine / EUROPE

“Once again The BOB band impacts the scene with a 3rd release that undeniably proves they are the locomotive cutting edge that drives the convoy of progressive country rock in America. And we’re lovin’ it.”
-Texas Music Magazine – Feb 2011

“literate, rural-tinged imagery that powers the best of Americana”
-L. Kent Wolgamott -Focus, Lincoln Nebraska Star

“Amazing Show!” -KPNT 105.7FM “The Point”

“Choral-like, almost epic in scale, I recommend opening a line to the Bob band” -Jim Cult -Spotlight Magazine

“a band with solid roots in music that matters”
– Mike Blake – CIceros -Riverfront Times- St. Louis

“the midwest based Bob Band can do no wrong”
-Get Out Section – St. Louis Post Dispatch

“see them now before they go national and never return ! “
-Patrick Hambrecht -Senior Reporter Daily Nebraskan
