Do You Sing at Funerals?

Peter Alden often gets asked if he sings at funerals. The answer is yes. In fact, he has a great number of years of experience in helping families come to terms with their loss. Peter lost his own son, Gabriel Grigsby, at the age of 10 in 2013.  Pete knows as well as anyone how celebrating a life with song – and the comfort it can bring – is a blessing.

Peter Alden has performed beautiful tributes at celebration of life, memorial and funeral services for years. It is always best to find someone with specific experience with this, and the sound of his voice has proven to be soothing and healing. While comforting mourners, a live vocal performance at a funeral can be a beautiful tribute to a departed loved one. Peter specializes in Gospel music – but he will work with you on any song request. Often our clients have specific song choices in mind – perhaps something they imagine their loved one would smile about. If it is hard for the family to make song choices, Peter is a wonderful at advising on what music would be suitable.

He also provides his own audio equipment.

While it can be a very traumatic experience to lose a loved one, we find that music lifts the spirit and can make a huge difference to a bereaved family. At a funeral or memorial, you can expect Peter to arrive early, stay for the duration of the service, listen dutifully to the eulogy, and leave promptly afterwards. More and more, people want to treat the funeral as an event to remember and to treasure, and as a celebration of life. If you need him to stay longer, he certainly will if at all possible.

We know from the great number of Thank you’s that we receive that music for funerals makes such a huge difference in the healing process and Pete feels that it is a privilege to perform in these circumstances. Our normal fee for a service such as this is deeply discounted.

As much notice as possible is appreciated but we understand when clients can only give us one to two days. Always feel free to ask me about his schedule, and we will fit you in if at all possible.  Contact me via email PeterAldenTeam@gmail.com or call my cell (407) 718-7462.

Join Pete at the movies! TCB Radio Network Meetup ’68 Comeback Special at Disney Springs

Join the hosts of TCB Radio Network: Krista Joy and Peter Alden for a theater viewing of Elvis’ ’68 Comeback Special at AMC Disney Springs 24 Theaters on August 20th for the 7:30pm showing! Not fork and screen. The address is 1500 East Buena Vista Drive, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
Phone: (407) 827-1308 Remember theme park tickets are NEVER required to visit Disney Springs!

Get your tickets for this showing in this location HERE

If you can’t make our meetup – details on the film and getting tickets in YOUR area can be found HERE

Our facebook event page is HERE

A great turn out for this showing all over the world could mean more Elvis films coming to theaters in the future, so come show your support by getting tickets and catching the show either with us or in your area!

Why are we having the meetup on August 20th instead of August 16th ?

Pete has a show on August 16th in the same location where Elvis filmed Follow that Dream! Get information on this show, tickets and more HERE.

Why are we having a meetup?

Since day one of launching TCB Radio Network we knew we’d be incorporating meetups because we want to get to know you offline and in person! It’s mentioned in our “about” page. We are thrilled that this opportunity has come to us here in Orlando – and yet you can still catch the film no matter where you live. Remember we also want to meet you at the 2018 Elvis Presley Memorial Dinner in Memphis!

Why did we pick this theater for our meetup?

Location, Location, Location. Founder of TCB Radio Network, Krista Joy – has loved Disney for years. Parking at Disney Springs is plentiful and FREE. You’ll want to park in ORANGE Garage for the shortest walk to the theater. The Disney Springs movie theater or AMC Disney Springs 24 is located at Disney Springs’s West Side, look for it near Splitsville and Bongos Cuban Cafe and Nightclub.

What’s so great about this theater? Several theaters in the area will be showing the ’68 Comeback Special!

The bonus is state-of-the-art THX Surround Sound and Sony Dynamic Digital Sound. We think the ’68 Comeback Special at AMC Disney Springs 24 is going to blow your mind. The seats are spacious and cushy, perfect for a rest after a long day at work. Plus, the atmosphere inside the theaters is beautifully themed to the grand Art Deco movement in the 1920s, so you’ll feel like going to the movies is really something special again.

AMC Disney Springs 24 has upgraded one of their auditoriums to be the first Enhanced Theater Experience in America – that means that the movie you’ll see there have a huge floor to ceiling screen, 12 channel audio, digital projection that is better quality than HD, and of course 3D capabilities. We sure hope this is the one where they will put Elvis!

And of course, it feels a little extra magical to see a Disney film at Walt Disney World! Special thanks to Fathom Events for providing Krista and Pete with complimentary media passes to enjoy the ’68 Comeback Special. See you at the movies!

Switching Blue Suede Shoes for Vintage Wooden Clogs?

Hello again Peter Alden Fans! Krista here, and I am back with more Peter Alden news! This week held an exciting first for us! Peter Alden in Spydeberg, Norway! Except Pete went there without ever leaving his home, hear in the USA. How is that possible? Well, February 21, 2018 I was contacted by Steinar Elvis Lyshaug about featuring Peter on his TCE Radioshow – which is based out of Norway.

“Hello Peter Alden,
My name is Steinar Elvis Lyshaug, we’re friends on facebook. I’m Editor and DJ for the TCE-Radioshow who is a weekly radio show in Elvis honor. In the show we have a column called ETA of the Week – Two In A Row. We are always on the lookout for ETA’s to present in this column, and i hope you would like to take part in it? What we need is a short bio and a CD or at least 2 good quality Mp3 files from you. We feel that this is a good way to be promoted, as we have listeners spread out all over the world 🙂

Hope to hear from you or your company 🙂

yours sincerely

Steinar Elvis Lyshaug
TCE-Radioshow”

Well, needless to say, we were honored by this. I posted my exciting news immediately in the private facebook group for our Peter Alden Fan Club (which…by the way…they get all the good stuff FIRST…have you joined yet??) and I had Pete send over the files right away. The show went out live last Tuesday, but Steinar was very kind to send me a link to the podcast version. You can listen to the entire episode that features Pete – any time at the link below!

https://soundcloud.com/radioriksoslo/tce-radioshow-060318

Here are a few shortcuts in case your Norwegian language skills are a little rusty, like mine. 6 minutes 30 seconds into the show you will hear Steinar say Peter Alden’s name. About 8 minutes 45 seconds in – you can catch a few words about the show in  English! The show has awesome Elvis music from the man himself. Here are some song titles and the time stamps where you can hear them.

32 minute mark “Unchained Melody”
36 minute mark “It’s Now or Never”
48 minute mark  “American Trilogy”

Next up is a lovely version of Amazing Grace (not by Elvis) at the one hour mark.

Then it’s back to all Elvis music.

The 1:18 mark is Elvis singing “Faded Love”
1:23 mark is “You Were Always On My Mind”
1:28 “There’s Always Me”

THEN… at the 1:30 mark Steinar begins talking about Peter, reading his bio (in Norwegian – which is SO COOL to hear!!) and soon after, plays Peter Alden singing “Such A Night” and “We Can Make the Morning.” WOOOOW SO AWESOME!

Not long after that is “Hurt” by Elvis …at 1:42 there is a a lovely version of Oh Danny Boy by an a capella group.

1:47 is “Rip It Up” by Elvis and at 1:51 “Take Good Care of Her”
1:55 “Love Coming Down”
2 hour mark “This Is Our Dance”

And now I present to you, more about the TCE Radioshow and why you will want to become a regular listener. Here is their full description as it came back to me in English through Google translate.

“A weekly program including news from the Elvis World: Here you get the latest news from Elvis World, including Elvis music, tribute from other artists, interviews and reports from various events dedicated to the King. Hundreds of people who love Elvis follow us from all over the world via web radio while we reach Hadeland and Land via the FM band. Elvis Radio also has its own facebook page where more participants participate in chat with each other in an event with chosen date of sending .. Visit the page to go to find the right event!”

Visit Facebook here!

Our program managers are divided into two (every other Tuesday) where:

Tuesday1: Erik Mohn (Mayor) & Steinar Elvis Lyshaug
Tuesday2: Erik Mohn (Mayor) & Bård Erik Wierli

SEND TIME: (FM 101.1 in OSLO) or on the internet radio.
Tuesdays 21:00 – 23:00 (We also send live from various events)

They are great about putting the recordings on sound cloud but if you want to tune in live – here is the scoop (I think!)

Somebody correct me if I am wrong but I believe they are 7 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time in the US … so if 21:00 is the same as our military time that means it is 9pm their time.. which would be 2pm Eastern time in the US … on Tuesdays. CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK TO LISTEN LIVE.

I hope you enjoyed our story about how Peter Alden made it to Norway. Here’s hoping some day we can all visit this beautiful country – in person!

Peter Alden featured on Ava’s Allocations and the Geri Petito Show

Hello Peter Alden Fans! This is Krista, Peter Alden’s marketing manager. Today I wanted to share some links and information with you about Peter Alden in the news! Brought to you by two very special ladies – who we are pleased to say are now permanently ingrained in our lives!

Ava Holly is a very busy lady! Her mission statement at 4Star.com is to “Empower others through the experience of our talented team.” In her business life, her goals include lifting people up through business, entertainment, and fashion. She works hard to help charities, change the face of traditional experiences….and as one of my heroes, Walt Disney, once said “keep moving forward” along with her fantastic team. Ava believes that “WE ALL SUCCEED WHEN WE ALL STEP TOGETHER.” I could not agree with her more. She is a queen of talent management, special events, and promotions. I really don’t know how Ava finds the extra time, but she also has another project to which she is dedicated. Her personal Blog, AvasAllocations.com 

Ava is obviously an Elvis fan and has a regular feature on her blog where she spotlights an Elvis Tribute Artist! Back in November 2017 – we were honored that she decided to feature Peter Alden as one of her first. Check out Ava’s blog about Peter Alden HERE

Inside this blog post you will notice that she mentions the fabulous Geri Petito (pictured above with Ava) and the fact that Peter Alden was a guest on Geri’s talk show. If you’d like to listen and watch this interview – you can catch it HERE.

Geri Petito is the Author of “I’m Not an Addict, I’m Just An Ass” and a Talk Show Host on the “Geri Petito Show.” Geri shares so much of her heart, thoughts and feelings on life in her book and on her show. Her mission is to “keep it real” and to tell the truth and expose the lies. I have enjoyed watching her on facebook live and getting her perspective. It is interesting to see the world through Geri’s eyes.

Our thanks to Geri Petito for featuring Pete on her show, being part of  the Peter Alden Fan Club this year, and even requesting and buying a song for his latest album! Thank you also to our dear local friend, Pablo Reyes, who introduced us to Geri and also to Richie Santa, who introduced us to Ava.

Although we have not had the chance to meet Ava or Geri in person, we hope to get back to the New York and New Jersey area one day. For now we are honored, to have crossed paths with these amazing women, even if it is just online and over the phone. Please check out their work by clicking the links in this post. I know you will enjoy it all!
