In The Studio With MJ - Toronto
Four studio albums. Countless sessions. Video mixes. Dance mixes. Three world tours. A ranch called "Neverland." This was my life and career for nearly 18 years, working closely with the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. This is your chance to hear the music, the stories behind the music, and what it was like to be a part of Michael's team. This is a one-of-a-kind music, photo and video-filled event.
Kick off the weekend with a very special VIP listening and mixing event "An Evening In The Studio With MJ" on Friday 10th November at Hamilton Grant Studio.
This will be a very unique opportunity as Brad takes you through many songs and mixes and gives everyone a chance to learn about the console, outboard gear and each person will have a chance to mix a song in an real working studio! Very limited seating is available for this event.
On Saturday November 11th 10am - 5pm I am presenting the full "In The Studio With MJ" presentation back at DC Music in Toronto.
I was Michael's technical director and part of the engineering team on four studio albums, including "Bad", "Dangerous", "HIStory", and "Blood On The Dance Floor." (Michael even gave me the nickname "Really, Really Brad".) These mammoth projects (including production, tour-prep and countless remixes) took upwards of 16 months each. You will see and hear what it was like to be in the studio with Michael and the team of engineers and producers who created these songs, through a carefully crafted timeline of music, video and behind-the-scenes info. From "Captain Eo" to "Man In The Mirror" to "Smile", I was there, and you will hear about my time working with Michael.
Later that same day we will be offering "The Virtual Tour of Neverland" on Saturday November 11th 6pm - 9:00pm, 2023.
As Michael built Neverland Valley Ranch, the attention he paid to quality and detail was amazing. Music, of course, played a vital role. Michael asked me to help in the early days of designing and building Neverland Valley Ranch, his incredible home. The ranch was filled with rides, music and surprises waiting to be discovered. He commissioned me to bring music to virtually ever corner. Michael would even give specific playlists for certain areas of the ranch, to create just the right environment. The Virtual Tour Of Neverland will give you a sense of the size, attention to detail and creative magic of Michael's dream home.
“Brad’s seminars offer a fascinating, eye (and ear)-opening experience, in which genuine insights about Michael Jackson as an artist, a person and a friend, are revealed. I thoroughly enjoyed the warm, conversational approach and the deep well of materials. There were several goosebump moments. Brad puts you right there, inside the studio in those eras, and shows how the magic was made. I couldn’t recommend it more to both fans of Jackson and anyone who cares about music.”Brad’s seminars offer a fascinating, eye (and ear)-opening experience, in which genuine insights about Michael Jackson as an artist, a person and a friend, are revealed.
