SUPER MARIO WORLD ARRANGEMENT!!!!
We're now less than 4 days away from the end of the project and I wanted to share this very special arrangement with everyone that we've been working on for a very long time.
A lot of people always ask me what my favorite video game of ALL TIME is... and I always say Super Mario World! I think from a design, control and gameplay standpoint it is the perfect game. It also has THE MOST impressive Mario music in the entire franchise in my opinion. SO MANY incredible songs in one game! It's mind blowing!
Before you take a listen I just need to make sure I'm 100% clear... this is the VERY FIRST TIME this arrangement has EVER been heard BY ANYONE IN THE WORLD... INCLUDING NINTENDO! My hope and dream is that this project gets funded so I can take this arrangement to Nintendo for possible inclusion into our tour and the album. They have NOT given me permission yet at this point (as they have yet to even hear it!) and there is absolutely no guarantee what-so-ever that this will make it into the final project. But I think that once you give it a listen you'll see why I feel very positive about presenting this track in hopes of future involvement with our show. I really feel that it's one of our finer masterpieces over the years and I really hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we had creating it. Also, please keep in mind that this is merely a computerized mock-up and NOT a real orchestra. The final track will of course sound even better than this!
Ladies and Gentlemen... Boys and Girls... I give you...

Please feel free to pass this link around on as many Nintendo, Mario and video game fansites as possible. We want to make sure Mario fans from around the world get the opportunity to hear this at least once just in case the project fails to be funded or we don't get the proper approvals.
Also! Speaking of Nintendo! Have you ever wondered what it is like to be backstage at a Video Games Live event? Our very dear friend and VGL guest conductor Eimear Noone has written an in depth blog about her experiences with Video Games Live during our huge (and free!) Amazon sponsored Comic Con show that was streamed LIVE on Twitch.TV to over 330,000 people (making it the most watched live video game concert EVER!) She also joined us a few days earlier in Irvine, CA for our big show at the 12,000+ seat Irvine Amphitheatre with the amazing Pacific Symphony! Eimear is best known for conducting all of the Blizzard Entertainment music over the past few years (Warcraft, Diablo & StarCraft series) as well as the Legend of Zelda: The Symphony of the Goddesses tour! Eimear has also donated an incredible track off her new album to be included in the 20+ song Video Games Live - Bonus Round album which everyone who pledges $5 or more will receive as a bonus for supporting VGL! You can check out her blog with tons of pics and a link to the VGL Comic Con stream HERE: http://eimearnoone.blogspot.com/2013/09/video-games-live-inside-scoop.html
