Be part of the Revolution!  The first 10 people to license a 1 Revolution Music track will get the opportunity to offer musical direction and name a brand new track.  It would be like being able to go up to Prince and say something like “I want the instrumental to sound real catchy, like Raspberry Beret but with jazz drums and upright bass.  We’ll call it Blueberry Swing.”  Can you say “opportunity of a lifetime?”   As if you need any more incentive to license some of the best music around!

5 Alarm Rocks The Pink House

Plot: Down to earth Mid-Western gal moves to Manhattan Beach in search of a fun way to spend her 20′s.  Residing in the house behind her apartment (a pink house perhaps?) are two fellow good-hearted Mid-Western guys who share her zest for life and a neighborly friendship.  Features some awesome music from the best production music library in the entire universe: 5 Alarm Music.

Thus is the storyline for NBC’s new pilot for The Pink House starring American Idol Finalist/Recording Artist/Actress Katharine McPhee (OK, maybe the last sentence was an act of creative license from the author.  Maybe…..).  The 5 Alarm choir crew was up to the task of recording some custom music for the show at Firehouse Recording Studios yesterday and looked darn good doing it!  They’ve seen a million faces, and they’ve rocked them all….

Embrace The Sabre Spirit!

We love having the opportunity to lend a helping hand to all of our favorite shows.  NBC‘s side splitting comedy The Office is definitely a favorite around here, so we all feel a little cooler knowing that our music was placed in the February 4th episode.  Dunder Mifflin, Scranton’s little paper distribution company that could, has been bought out by corporate giants Sabre.  Sabre has a wholesome corporate video featuring Christian Slater and Kathy Bates posing as the kinder gentler business regulators which also features Parry Music Library’s Planning For Tomorrow in the background.

Talk hard, Christian Slater!  (Pump Up The Volume, anyone?)
