AndLoveMusic is a three piece band playing the styles of reggae, hip-hop, and pop music. This band has accomplished a lot in a small amount of time. The band started with Timmy Halischak writing songs on an 8 track recorder and performing them at open mics and coffee shops all over Atlanta. Aside Timmy in this band is Drew Funkhouser on the bass. Having grown up together playing music, made us a perfect match for the style. Finally to complete the project, Chris Rickard on drums and percussion. Timmy heard about Chris through the grape vine and was looking for a new drummer. If you haven’t seen this band live yet, you are in for a very cool and lively treat. They will keep you rocking and dancing all night long with their reggae flows, positive lyrics, funky bass lines, and beats that will get you on your feet. People Get Ready cause there is a new band in town and their name is AndLove Music

Cry With Us! Puddles Pity Party in Orlando
I owe him a poem:
Here’s a story of a sad clown who one night in February was traveling through O-town.
He brought a suitcase and a lot of gum, he brought music and videos and tons of fun.
He sang high but mostly he sang low, and he put of one hell of a good show.
He gave a bearded guy a cupcake and danced with a lady, a wolf he would make
There is no doubt he is a boss sir, he even got love from Kevin Costner.
Fans filled the plaza for a night of delight as the 7 foot clown gave us some real insight.
He sang Bowie and Queen and even some Who, also Cash, Lorde and “Let it go” too
Videos played of pets and babies crying, also beautiful artwork and people smiling.
Last night Orlando was anything but mad as we showed much love for a clown that is sad.
Ok, I’d cry too after that poem. Here’s some more info:
If you haven’t been to see a Puddles Pity Party show, you are missing out.
The show had me smiling and laughing so hard my stomach hurt, but I was also moved so many times by the range of Puddles voice. True entertainment never gets old and I have a feeling he is going to last forever.
I loved the interaction he had with the crowd. He pulled numerous people up to help him on stage and all of them were good sports, one man even singing the entire song, “All by myself” karaoke style! The show was so well thought out and planned but with room for some hilarious improv. Especially at the end when he pulled the 3 fans from the audience dressed like clowns. At the end of them performing together, Puddles suddenly remembers that he is scared of clowns! Genius!
Hands down one of the best performances I’ve seen in years.
