You know Michael Jackson, but do you really know what it was like to work with him?
I first met Michael in 1984, during a project called "Captain EO". Little did I know back then that over the next 18 years I would spend countless hours with him working on projects like "Bad", "Dangerous" and "HIStory".
Neverland Valley Ranch.
He was my boss.
He was my client.
He was like no one I have met.
His name is Michael Jackson, and I'd like to introduce you to him.
I was Michael's Technical Director for many years, working side-by-side with him and the team in the studio. During my seminar I take my guests through a music-filled journey, allowing you to come into the studio and hear how these records came to life.
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".
Did Michael drive himself, or show up in a limo?
Why did the projects take so long?
How many were recorded?
Were there special guests?
What were most days like?
Who wrote the songs?
The multi-media seminar features many new segments, music and video to bring you into the studio like you never thought was possible.
An Evening In The Studio With Michael Jackson (Friday Night)
Creative juices start flowing after dark in the studio. "An Evening In The Studio With MJ" is a casual taste of the full seminar, touching on the three albums I was deeply involved with: Bad, Dangerous and HIStory. Shorter in terms of length, but full of music and stories about my years with Michael. Trust me - this is an evening you won't soon forget!
The Full Seminar (Saturday)
The all-day seminar has grown significantly over the years, and I am so excited to present the full 2019 version for you! Go deep into the songs, the songwriting, the recording techniques, the production teams and day-to-day life "In The Studio With MJ".
The Tour Of Neverland and The Extended Remix (Saturday Night)
Neverland - Michael’s amazing home. Michael asked me to help in the early days of designing and building Neverland Valley Ranch. The ranch was filled with rides, music and surprises waiting to be discovered. He wanted me to bring music to virtually anywhere he or a guest might visit, and that’s what I did - for eighteen years.. Michael was very specific about the playlists and sounds for certain areas of the ranch, to create just the right modd. The Tour Of Neverland will give you a sense of the size, attention to detail and creative magic of Michael's home.
The Extended Remix is a unique chance to try some hands-on mixing to some of your favorite songs. Think of it as hanging out in a studio - or even a family room - as I play mixes, video clips, photos anything else that won't fit into my seminar. Try your hand at building a dance mix. Dig deep into the catalog and hear Michael's music as if for the first time. Bigger and better than ever - The Extended Remix is an event you will not soon forget!
Truly a very unique experience for Michael’s fans, as well as those who love music and want to peek “behind the curtain”.
“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.
