    Playboy’s Incredible Influence on the American Music Scene

    Insights into Modern American History


    Hugh Hefner and Playboy, the glossy magazine he published, may best known for introducing an entire generation to the beauty of the female anatomy.

  • But truth be told, one of the most lasting impressions and important impacts is his role and contributions to music in America.


  • For almost two decades, Playboy was the largest employer of entertainment—singers, musicians and comedians—in the country.


  • The remarkable and historically accurate book Playboy Swings: How Hugh Hefner and Playboy Changed the Face of Music, author Patty Farmer explores the remarkable way Hugh Hefner’s efforts resulted in a legacy that continues to influence the American music and entertainment landscape.

    “The Playboy phenomenon was not just about sex and glamorous women, it was more about lifestyle and music,” Farmer says. “The finest jazz, in particular, was a personal passion of Hefner.

    Farmer, who was given access to Hefner’s personal archives, created a well-documented and illustrated chronicles of the decades of musical events and performances with musicians and artists and people who became legends in our history.

    He supported and promoted jazz musicians from the very beginning in writing, on stage, and even with his own record label. The very first issue of Playboy, graced by the stunning Marilyn Monroe, also contained a detailed feature story about Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey. His emphasis on musicians transcended racial divisions and opened up social dialogue and discourse in ground-breaking ways.

    To celebrate Playboy’s fifth anniversary in 1959, Hefner produced the first Playboy Jazz Festival in Chicago. His TV show, "Playboy's Penthouse" aired nationwide from 1959 to 1961, and “Playboy After Dark,” from January 16, 1969 to 1970. In the 40 worldwide Playboy Clubs, he showcased jazz musicians and provided black entertainers invaluable exposure in a defiance of segregationist laws and attitudes of the time.

    In 1962, Playboy published the first of the iconic Playboy interviews with Miles Davis (conducted by "Roots" author Alex Haley).

    Aretha Franklin played piano and sang at the Chicago Playboy Club when just 18 years old. It was her first professional singing job outside of church.

    Playboy's Penthouse broke all the rules with Hef's integration of races. Nat King Cole appearing and sitting on the couch with a white woman- Rona Jaffe--to discuss her new book was scandalous and resulted in both networks and sponsors dropping the show.

    Farmer’s insights into this amazing chapter of American cultural history is told through interviews with those involved present in the actual events, including Hugh Hefner, and his Playboy cohorts, and the cadre of jazz artists, performers, show business legends and entertainers who performed at the Playboy venues, and thereafter became well known around the world. Here’s a sampling:

In his debut performance at the 1996 Playboy Jazz Festival, internationally acclaimed singing legend Tony Bennett proved he has not only bridged the generation gap, but as the New York Times put it, "He has demolished it.”

    What People Are Saying

    “I command your attention to “Playboy Swings: How Hugh Hefner and Playboy Changed the Face of Music,” a well-researched, fascinatingly detailed new book by Patty Farmer.”
    – Terry Teachout, WALL STREET JOURNAL

    “For anyone interested in the good old days of jazz, rye old-fashions and life after dark, this book brings the music, rough glamour and excitement of the Playboy Empire in all their exhilarating, ground-breaking glory. Playboy Swings is well-researched, breezily written, incredibly informative, and a lot of fun.”
    - REX REED, film critic and television host

    “Playboy was, in its prime, less a magazine than a kit of tools to make men feel worthy of the perfect women in its pages, and sophisticated taste in music—a taste for jazz—was the best tool it provided. Patty Farmer does full justice to this largely forgotten, essential; story in American cultural history.”
    - DAVID HADJU, Professor of Arts and Culture, Columbia University

    “Patty Farmer tells the story of Hugh Hefner’s intermingling of Playboy and jazz over the past 60+ years. Farmer hasn’t missed a thing in her voluminous research. Playboy Swings is an endlessly entertaining look at when jazz—and Playboy—was king.”
    - RICKY RICCARDI, Author of What a Wonderful World: The Magic of Louis Armstrong’s Later Years.

    “The Bunnies weren’t sluts! They were pretty, wholesome young women, and good company.”
    - JOAN RIVERS

    “Mirroring Hugh Hefner’s penultimate passion, Playboy has demonstrated an avid interest in jazz since the magazine’s debut issue in 1953. And in this lively anecdotal survey, author and former model Patty Farmer offers a behind the scene glimpse of how Playboy’s jazz festivals, key clubs, and magazine enthusiastically celebrated America’s only original art form. Farmer combines the voices of Playboy execs, managers, Bunnies, and scores of celebrity musicians and performers to shape an entertaining oral history that attests to Playboy’s role as a major proponent in the resurgent popularity of jazz during the mid and late twentieth century.”
    - MEL WATKINS, Author of On the Real Side: A History of African-American Comedy and Stepin Fetchit: The Life and Times of Lincoln Perry.

    “Hugh Hefner didn’t care if you were black, white or purple, only if you were funny or could sing.”
    - DICK GREGORY

    “PLAYBOY SWINGS is an intimate look at what went on in the clubs, the racial barriers they helped to eliminate, and the careers that skyrocketed from the Playboy Club stages. This is as entertaining as an evening at a club itself. Four "Bunny Tails" for the effort.”
    - BILL BOGGS Television Host and producer.

    “Hugh Hefner…His Playboy Clubs promoted laughter and music. Comedians and hot little jazz combos and singers were the staples of his supper clubs. His festivals brought the legends of jazz to the world. His impact was huge. Music and laughter—healing stuff. The BALM. And Playboy Swings tells the story.
    - Al JARREAU

    Prior to the official single release, “Through It All” was placed in the Lionsgate film “I Really Hate My Ex” released on 4/14/2015. The movie was written and directed by the incomparable Troy Beyer and is currently available on all digital outlets and where DVD’s are sold.

    To create the melodic soul of “Through It All” Miss Caesar teamed up with one of her frequent collaborators; the super production team “Grand Staff”, whom have worked with artists such as Chris Brown, J Cole, Wiz Khalifa, Jim Jones, Ryan Leslie and more.

Independently her hard work has afforded her two music videos on 106 & Park, a live performance on Fox news, song placements in movies and some major performance opportunities. One of the most notable of those opportunities being the ASCAP Centennial Awards this past November 2014 where she performed on the same stage as the great Stevie Wonder.

    SMG IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE FLOETRY REUNION TOUR AT THE RITZ THEATRE THURSDAY, AUGUST 6TH AT 8 PM.


     FLOETRY REUNION TOUR



    (Jacksonville, FL – June 15, 2015) SMG is pleased to announce the Floetry reunion tour at the Ritz Theatre on Thursday, August 6th at 8 PM.

    After an eight year hiatus, Grammy-nominated neo-soul duo Floetry (comprised of singers/songwriters Marsha Ambrosius and Natalie ‘The Floacist’ Stewart) has reemerged on the music scene with a reunion tour, which kicked-off in Atlanta at the Wolf Creek Amphitheatre on May 15th.

    The tour making its Jacksonville stop at the Ritz Theatre & Museum is befitting; considering the historic venue has hosted other neo soul artists in the past, such as: Chrisette Michele, Esperanza Spaulding, Dwele, Leela James, Eric Benet’, Rachelle Ferrell, Lala Hathaway and many others.

    Marsha Ambrosius and Natalie Stewart are the funky divas behind the neo-soul duo Floetry. Ambrosius and Stewart emerged in the mid-'90s as songwriters in demand. They're behind some of the new millennium's biggest hits, too. The pair has written tracks for Michael Jackson, Jill Scott, Glenn Lewis, and Bilal. While they're highly respected behind the scenes, Floetry is their way of moving up front. Ambrosius is the songstress to Stewart's spoken word impresario or "floacist" role.

    In a recent interview with www.singersroom.com, the London natives had this to say about a reunion tour, “I think it’s [the] perfect time for us to do it now, we’re both grown, we’ve done things outside of each other and it’s just that much easier to come back and give back”, said Ambrosius. The Floacist further explains the reunion by saying, “Ultimately it’s all for the supporters. Everything that we’ve done has been based on their support. I think it’s only right that they’re able to enjoy, we’re able to enjoy; those songs scream for a bit of fresh air, fresh life.”

    The tour also features show opener—Janine and the Mixtape. In 2013 Janine & The Mixtape released her debut EP, Dark Mind. A tangible buzz began to simmer around the five-song collection, eventually sending it to #2 on the iTunes R&B chart and cementing its place as one of Top 50 Albums of the year. Credit this in part to her soulful, sexified single, “Hold Me,” which VH1 featured on its hit show, Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. Subsequently, Janine inked a deal with Atlantic Records as a joint venture with her own Little Mixtape Records, paving the way for Dark Mind’s formal 2014 reissue. And, let’s not forget that, along the way, Janine & The Mixtape was nominated for the Critic’s Choice Award at the New Zealand Music Awards.

    Introducing NinjaWay: The Tidal Wav of Technology from Bad Boy Branding’s Jay Leopardi & Super Bowl Winner Walter Thurmond III


    NinjaWay



    What if you could hear what your favorite artist was listening to in real time? What if you could connect to your favorite artist without using a smart phone, computer, or social media? What if you could hear all of this through headphones that would never distort sound again?

    Would you spend a small amount of money—less than the cost of a smart phone—to be in control of your favorite music, which is delivered in an entirely new way and in an entirely new style of sound?

    Welcome to the world of NinjaWav.

    After spending years behind the scenes on the set of ABC’s hit series Shark Tank, Jay Leopardi has decided to flip gears, along with his partner, professional athlete and Super Bowl Champion, Walter Thurmond III. Together they have created what most people are calling “The Next Big Thing,” as seen in Times Square, NY City, and Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles. After spending millions of dollars on research & development, attorneys, technologists, designers, top sound engineers, and the most influential music artists & celebrities, Leopardi and Thurmond III created NinjaWav, LLC. Their products will hit stores in 2016.

    NinjaWav is not limited to just music. It is a lifestyle shift and it will change the way streaming service providers, in particular, the music industry, and maybe the entire entertainment industry, do business.

    Leopardi and Thurmond III wanted to create a product that gave the users the ability to listen to music and still do what they want on their smart phones, all while communicating through a glass. This is what the NinjaWav does. But this is only one of several products NinjaWav will be launching in 2016.

    All NinjaWav products feature proprietary “HPA High Precision Audio” sound technology. The form factors of the devices allows them to fit inconspicuously within a pants pocket. As a bonus, due to the world of phone flushers, each product is completely waterproof. A further unique feature on all of the NinjaWav products is a battery with a true 24 hr. life, which can even be extended, depending on how loud the user plays their music. It can be used on the go, with any smart device, headphones, amongst many other things.

    Leopardi stated: “In all of my years of developing brands and breaking talent, I wish I met Walter sooner. We are very fortunate to have IP that will enable the music lovers of the World to do what they want, when they want, and not have to keep changing battery chargers, up grading phones, replacing their music, and paying astronomical amounts of money for data plans.”

    Thurmond III said: “NinjaWav will make life easier and more interactive for artists, musicians and, most importantly, the fans/listeners. Companies like Google and Apple have needed this type of technology but just have not figured it out.”

    To get the ball rolling, Leopardi and Thurmond are running a contest via their website and on billboards in Times Square and Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, which display mixed-up/puzzled concepts of the brand. In order for users to win the contest, they must figure out what is the next big thing/technology.

    At http://www.FollowTheWav.com, they can find helpful hints to jumpstart their quest.

    The lucky winner that accurately guesses “What the Next Big Thing” is, will win one of the following prizes:

    (1) $10,000 US Dollars on National TV;

    (2) An all-inclusive prepaid T-Mobile smartphone with 1 year of unlimited service,

    (3) A year supply of Red Bull, maximum of 100 cases;

    (4) A shopping spree at Forever 21, while being escorted by NFL Super Bowl Champion Walter Thurmond III; or

    (5) A tailor-made suit, designed by renowned designer Woody Wilson, known for creating staple looks for celebrities such as Jimmy Kimmel, Steve Harvey and the cast of Ocean’s Twelve, just to name a few.

    To enter the “What’s the Next Big Thing” contest, please visit http://www.FollowTheWav.com, and read the sweepstakes rules and terms before entering. Thanks for being part of the change that you have always wanted and needed.

    Follow the Wav Campaign on Twitter @thebigwav, and on Facebook and Instagram @followthewav.

    ABOUT THE INVENTORS / TECHHEADS
    Jay Leopardi, lifestyle and pop culture branding expert, is the founder & CEO of Bad Boy Branding. Working with start-ups to top tier brands, he reinvents the traditional structure of brand development.

    Leopardi’s theory: a great product that doesn't connect with people in their everyday lives is like a Rolls Royce with no gas: it looks great, but it's not going anywhere. World famous celebrities, start-up entrepreneurs, and mega-corporations are just a few of the different types of clients Jay Leopardi and his team of industry-leading professionals empower.

    While he has helped shape the personal brands of celebrities like Cedric the Entertainer and companies like Fuse Science, some of Leopardi's favorite projects have been in the fashion and technology industries. His skills range from innovative inventions, new business funding techniques, concept actualization, and product launch campaigns. His entrepreneurial endeavors include product placement, licensing and integration, TV & film production as well as online brand awareness.

    Focusing on an A-to-Z service palette, Jay Leopardi handles every step in the process of brand growth -- from start to finish. As seen in many publications such as Forbes, Newsweek, Bloomberg, Wall Street Journal, Strategy Magazine, Elle, Upscale, Ok Weekly, and many others, Jay shares dynamic real life stories and delivers real business messages in real time with his populous audience.

    Jay emphasizes the importance of relationships like his tight-knit bond with “The Shark” Daymond John, of the hit television show “Shark Tank,” and many of the entrepreneurs launched from that show.

    Collectively handling a seven-figure business that started from his own home, Leopardi has been labeled “the master of reinvention” according to Strategy Magazine and is the ultimate representation of an entrepreneurial success story.

    Walter Thurmond III is an American football cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles. He grew up playing baseball, football, and other competitive sports in Los Angeles, California. At the age of 16, Thurmond was already a two-sport star in both football and track and field at West Covina High School; and critics, coaches, and fans alike considered him -- one of California’s fastest players. Thurmond’s outstanding work ethic, athleticism, and competitiveness lead West Covina to the CIF Southern Section Division VII Championship, earning him All-San Gabriel Valley Region honors.

    At the University of Oregon, Thurmond’s life was laid back compared to his life in LA, and the people were great and very welcoming towards Thurmond. Their genuine love motivated him to become a starter and a redshirt freshman for the Ducks, earning him honorable mentions in ’06 and ‘07 for the all-Pac-10 teams; and during the ’08 Holiday Bowl at Qualcomm Stadium, Thurmond thrust himself into the spotlight by intercepting a pass intended for Oklahoma State Cowboys’ wide receiver Hubert Anyiam; but in ’09, Thurmond sat out the season with torn ligaments in his knee.

    Father Time healed Thurmond’s injuries, and once again the aggressive cornerback was back in the gym, chiseling his natural physique, and several months later, Thurmond’s lifelong dream of playing in the National Football League -- came into fruition when the Seattle Seahawks drafted him in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. But three years later, a broken fibula and an ankle sprain sidelined Thurmond for most of the 2013 season, but miraculously in 2014, Thurmond returned, and he and his teammates pummeled the Denver Broncos to win Super Bowl XLVIII.

    In the off-season, the New York Giants signed Thurmond to a one-year deal, but 2 games into the 2014 NFL season; Thurmond was placed on the injured reserve after suffering a torn pectoral. That setback made Thurmond to think about his football career. Not the type to put all of his eggs into one basket, he came up with an alternate plan and formed a partnership with branding and marketing experts—Jay Leopardi and Carl Harte of Bad Boy Branding. Thurmond met the dynamic duo and they discussed an innovative idea that Thurmond had, about a nonexistent concept of technology, which will soon be available in 2016.

    But until then, Thurmond will be extremely busy -- executive producing four films that are now in post-production, as well as another film and TV show that are in pre-production. He will also be promoting literacy in inner-city schools through his Walter Thurmond Foundation for Arts and Education, which is a non-profit organization, created by Thurmond to empower inner-city youths, by providing them positive programs in the fields of sports, fashion, film and art; and in regards to his football career—Thurmond vows to be in tip-top shape for the 2015 NFL season.
