  • Live Concerts are Back, Live Music to Celebrate

    YES!!!!!  Live music is back!!!!  (Going to see the Dead & Company Thursday in Dallas. Can’t Wait!)  In celebration of experiencing music in the flesh again, I’ve put together a few live cuts from my record and CD collection.  (Remember when FM radio played live cuts.  Those GOOD days of radio.)  Enjoy and I hope to see you soon back at the venues, clubs and festivals.

  • Later Curly Playlist

    She thought California was the place she oughta be, so she loaded up the truck ….. We’ll miss you Coralee!

    Here is David Denson’s (VP of Production) Playlist for former employee and always friend, Coralee Macías


    It’s August, and the breezes have all but disappeared (save for the occasional windy afternoon storm).  “The air is hot, heavy, and wet, and ya just can’t get high.”  Here in Texas, the mercury is often up over 105 degrees, the sky often clear as a bell with nary a cloud in sight, and you can bake bread outside without an oven—well, almost.  The neighborhood dogs are panting away under whatever shade they can find, and the ranges are dotted with cattle lying down to conserve whatever energy they have, or sucking up water from the ponds dotting the fields.

    Growing up in Canada, air conditioning was almost unheard of, and in Alberta the air was so dry that rain often never made it all the way to the ground.  Summer weather was rarely unpleasant, and quite welcome after making it thru another harsh winter.  But we moved to Florida, my senior year in high school (yeah, that sucked about as bad as it sounds), and I had to contend with the South Florida summer, complete with flying cockroaches, and the air full of little black flying “Love Bugs” so named because they flew in clouds of copulating pairs so thick you could almost hardly see.

    In the late afternoons, we would listen to AM transistor radios, and later FM car stereos, broadcasting music befitting the season.  Some of the songs of which I’m most fond were from the summers of the latter 60’s, and into the mid-70’s.  Yeah, there were even a couple of DISCO songs that I sort of liked (though would never admit to that).

    So here’s a musical tour of my summers past, and in no particular order—a celebration of the teacher-less time of year when kids could be kids, and responsibilities could be shirked, and love sprung eternal.  Oh and beer!  There was lots and lots of beer!  Listening in, you can almost taste it.

  • Strong Songs of 2021 - So Far

    Just passing the musical halfway point of 2021, wanted to share a few of my favs of this year.  Introducing “Strong Songs of 2021 – So Far”.  Hope I’m able to turn you on to something or just share some of the great tunes/artists streaming throughout the universe currently.  (You have any songs you love released in 2021 – please share – sstrong@redtailentertainment – love to discover!)

  • The "I Need To Listen To More" Playlist

    I’m the type of person to listen to the same 5 songs over and over again. So for this playlist, I decided to pull together songs that I really love but are either newer to me, or I don’t listen to them enough. Happy listening!

  • Red Tail Entertainment’s Staff Picks

    Each week a Red Tail Team Member will share their musical playlist and/or pop culture picks as we all need a “little help from our friends” to get through 2020.  We’ll share something “old”, something “new”, something “borrowed” and sometimes something from the “blues”.

    The staff got together and thought it would be best to let the CEO start with his playlist, so here’s Marc’s picks.  Any comments, suggestions, shout outs or personal musical nuggets are much appreciated.  Send to:

    (On certain devices you might need to download the Spotify App to hear the complete songs.  No purchase necessary.)
