Ralphie Report: We The Kings take on Broadway’s ‘Hamilton’

Ralphie Report: We The Kings take on Broadway’s ‘Hamilton’

It is no secret that “Hamilton” is still Broadway’s hottest, most-impossible-to-get ticket even without its original cast. And Travis Clark, lead singer of We The Kings, makes no secret of his successful ploy that ended up landing him far beyond the original intent of simply watching the show live. “I was like, ‘Hey if we […]

Ralphie Report: John Legend set to release new album

A few weeks ago John Legend held an album listening party for his forthcoming LP “Darkness and Light” at the Samsung 837 event space in New York City’s Meatpacking District. After playing a handful of unreleased cuts, the singer talked about the influence his gospel music background had on this new album. And of course, […]

Ralphie Report: A look back at the AMAs

Ralphie Report: A look back at the AMAs

The genesis of my Thanksgiving week column has become tradition: I usually begin typing it immediately after I check out of my hotel in downtown Los Angeles. My morning after the American Music Awards technically starts at the after-party. Then there’s an after-after party with my colleagues. That is followed by food, caffeine and a […]

Ralphie Report: Laurie Hernandez is looking good in ‘Dancing With The Stars’

We learned on Monday night’s “Dancing With The Stars” that last week, Laurie Hernandez’s grandmother passed away after a battle with Alzheimer’s disease. I chatted with the gold medalist last Thursday, coincidentally enough ahead of her “homecoming” show at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. on the “Kellogg’s Tour Of Gymnastics Champions.” There was no […]

Ralphie Report: Charlie Heaton talks ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘Shut In’

Ralphie Report: Charlie Heaton talks ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘Shut In’

I sat there across from Charlie Heaton inside a room at The Ritz-Carlton in the Battery Park neighborhood of Manhattan. It was just me, the “Stranger Things” star and my audio recorder. On top of the success from the hit Netflix series, the 22-year-old was running the gauntlet on a full day of press to […]

Ralphie Report: Rachel Platten’s 2016 has been a pretty good one

Rachel Platten’s 2016 has brought her to many different places; one of the latest being Times Square where, along with Joe Jonas, she helped reveal some of the nominees for the 2016 American Music Awards. When it comes to the show’s biggest prize, “Artist Of The Year,” the “Fight Song” artist knows a thing or […]

Ralphie Report: Daya’s success due, in part, to Hazleton producer

Ralphie Report: Daya’s success due, in part, to Hazleton producer

Just 11 months ago, Daya’s parents were pushing her to apply to college just in-case this whole singing career didn’t pan out. Fast forward to October 2016, just weeks shy of her 18th birthday, and suffice to say the artist will be deferring. “I did apply last year,” Daya, nee Grace Tandon, told me last […]

Ralphie Report: Charlie Puth talks ‘Nine Track Mind’ and a special video for fans

Charlie Puth confirmed to me that the “Nine Track Mind” album cycle is finished but he stopped short of saying that he wouldn’t be a part of any other new music before year’s end. “We filmed a video for ‘Dangerously’ just as like a fan thank you,” he revealed. “You know, thanks for this amazing […]

Ralphie Report: Life is looking sweet for Joe Jonas and DNCE

Ralphie Report: Life is looking sweet for Joe Jonas and DNCE

Joe Jonas probably has the weekend of November 18 circled on his calendar — or highlighted in his phone. You get the idea. That Friday, the Jonas-fronted DNCE will drop its debut, full-length album. On Nov. 27, DNCE will head over to the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles for the 2016 American Music Awards. […]

Ralphie Report: Spontaneity can help pave your way in life

Ralphie Report: Spontaneity can help pave your way in life

It’s funny how life works out sometimes. I booked a flight on a whim to Cincinnati to attend the city’s Oktoberfest celebration (the biggest in the country) last month. It just so happened that on the same weekend, my buddy, Marc Scibilia, was playing a show across the river in Northern Kentucky on a tour […]
