    Lez Zeppelin

    All Girls. All Zeppelin. Since forming in 2004, the New York City-based quartet has toured throughout the United States and Europe to become the first and foremost female rock act to pay homage to Led Zeppelin and to garner rave reviews across the board. Although, LEZ ZEPPELIN stays true to the musically audacious spirit of the original, delivering the legendary rock band's blistering arrangements and monstrous sound note-for-note at what often are sold-out frenzied shows around the world, the four women that make for the four essentially diverse elements of the band bring their own unique energy and passion to the music. Indeed, this may be the thing that serves most to set them apart. But then, there is also the seamless and strangely appropriate way in which LEZ ZEPPELIN inject their gender-bending performance into material that is often thought of as an historically male expression. For those who believe this to be the case, all that can be said is: times have changed. Live, the group takes its lead from what Led Zeppelin did in performance, seeking to create an intense experience from the in-the-moment interaction between all the players to both recount and reinvent the musical moment for the audience.

The Blasters' self-described "American Music" was a blend of blues music, rockabilly, early rock and roll, punk rock, mountain music, and rhythm and blues. They still have a devoted fan base and have received largely positive critical reviews, but have earned only limited mainstream success. Critic Mark Deming wrote of them, "the Blasters displayed a wide-ranging musical diversity [and] were a supremely tight and tasteful band with enough fire, smarts, and passion for two or three groups."

    Red Elvises

    If Igor and Red Elvises aren't in the middle of a tour, they are getting ready for the next one - this is a group that is constantly in motion and consistently evolving. Singer, songwriter, guitarist and showman extraordinaire Igor Yuzov is perpetually globetrotting and in the process he has found scores of wildly talented, entertaining musicians to bring into the fold of this increasingly international party band. Red Elvises started as a Russian group, playing what they dubbed "Siberian Surf Rock". Since then the band has included musicians from many other countries including United States, Israel, Puerto Rico and Bulgaria, to name just a few. Everyone who performs with them for any length of time brings something different both energetically and musically. At various times shows have included keyboards, accordions, sax, clarinet, trumpet, flute, banjo, mandolin, tuba and many other instruments. Old and new fans alike can expect to be surprised at shows again and again, however the roots of Red Elvises remain the same: Igor's unique brand of humor combined with guitar based rock'n'roll that makes audiences want to sing, dance, scream and shout. German born Igor Yuzov grew up in the former Soviet Union, where folk music was the norm and rock'n'roll was illegal. A rebellious streak, however, led him to seek out the forbidden records, which could be secretely traded in some places for those who knew where to look. As soon as it became possible, Igor left Russia for America with his folk band Limpopo. The "Crazy Russian Folk'n'Roll" group were personally greeted by Ronald Reagan and proceeded to win Ed McMahon's Star Search. Red Elvises began in 1995 after Igor dreamed that Elvis Presley came to him and told him to start playing rock'n'roll. Not one to say no to the King, Igor and his Russian friends started playing on Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade. Their street musician days did not last long, however, as they drew such huge crowds that the City of Santa Monica brought them to court and ordered them off the streets. Since then Red Elvises have been constantly touring, with occasional breaks from the road to record an album or take part in film and television projects. This constant work for the last 15 years has led to them gaining a world-wide following, with successful tours all over North America, Europe and Russia (Red Elvises bootlegs have been found in Siberia). Igor & Red Elvises have declined several major record deals, prefering to maintain independent status and produce all their own work. This includes 11 studio albums, one live album, a live concert DVD and a Greatest Hits compilation. Added to their long resume is work in film (Six String Samurai, Mail Order Bride, Armageddon, Skippy) and television (Melrose Place, Fastlane, Penn and Teller's Sin City Extravaganza, VH-1 Behind the Music, MTV). They can be found playing everything from large festivals to private parties, small venues to massive stages such as 2005's Live 8 Benefit Concert. Whatever the event, wherever Igor & Red Elvises go, they bring the party with them.

    Slaughter

    Former Vinnie Vincent Invasion members Mark Slaughter and bassist Dana Strum formed Slaughter with guitarist Tim Kelly and drummer Blas Elias in 1988 in an attempt to cross over to pop audiences. Their metal style's main focus is on catchy melodies and Mark Slaughter's impressive vocal range, particularly his somewhat nasal falsetto. Their first two studio albums sold quite well until their style fell out of favor with the alternative explosion. The group struggled throughout the 1990s, and on February 5, 1998, Kelly died in an auto accident; his final recordings appeared a year later on Eternal Live. Still, the band managed to regroup without him, releasing Back to Reality in 1999 with new guitarist Jeff Blando. Current line-up: Mark Slaughter - vocals Jeff Blando - guitar/vocals Zoltan Cheney - drums Dana Strum - bass Guitarist Timothy Patrick "Tim" Kelly died tragically on February 5, 1998 as a result of an auto/truck accident.

    Protest The Hero

    All the way from Whitby, Ontario comes PROTEST THE HERO, a new face of fast, hard music. The 5-piece band is comprised of Rody Walker (lead vocals), Tim Millar (guitar, vocals), Luke Hoskin (lead guitars, vocals, piano), Moe Carlson (drums), and Arif Mirabdolbaghi (bass guitar, vocals). Their debut US full-length, KEZIA (keh-zai-yah) is due out April 4, 2006 on Vagrant. Protest The Hero was created when the school friends were just 14-years-old and realized their mutual passion for music. We started this band because we love music - writing it, recording it, playing it, performing it, and improving on it, comments lead singer Rody Walker. Over the next 5 years the band forfeited weekends and summer vacations to develop their craft and to make a name for themselves on the road. With a sound and style reminiscent of Coheed And Cambria-meets-Every Time I Die, Protest The Hero built up a loyal following of fans that appreciate skilled musicianship clashing head on with artistic passion. PTH have released two records on Canadian punk rock label Underground Operations, 2001s vinyl 7 Search For The Truth and the 2003 EP, A Calculated Use of Sound. Protest The Hero was awarded Best Indie Metal Band at the 2004 Indie Music Awards during Canadian Music Week in Toronto and has ventured into the spotlight with multiple appearances on MuchMusics The Punk Show, as well as various radio show appearances and performances along with a relentless tour schedule. It's not an easy life, on the road says Rody, but it's something that every developing band has to do. If you ever want to leave your parents garage, you have to be prepared to break your back and like it. The day that Protest The Hero finished their final senior high exams, they left on a three-week headlining tour from Toronto to Halifax entitled ‘Cock the Vote’, not only to spread their name, but more importantly to raise voter consciousness for the upcoming Canadian election. The band has played with such acts as Limp Bizkit, Korn, Raised Fist, Bigwig, Choke, Death By Stereo, Alexisonfire, Sum41 and tons of others. They also played the Canadian dates of the Vans Warped Tour.The band's dedication and extreme work ethic is about to be further realized with the debut US release of their first full-length album, Kezia. Kezia is an intricately executed situationist requiem similar to a concept album in that it tells a story. Kezia embodies all that Protest The Hero was and is, amidst the confounds of a breathtaking tale illustrating the doomed execution of the title character. The story is chronicled in the perspective of three characters: The Prison Priest, The Prison Guard/Gunman, and Kezia herself. Each character is designated a section containing three songs, with a single retrospective finale concluding the album. The three characters represent an aspect of the band-members themselves, resulting in a deeply personal album. The lyrics on Kezia are something deeply personal to all of us. They reflect personal losses, and moral changes within all of us, states Rody Labeling Kezia a concept album is an insult to all of us. Produced by Julius "Juice" Butty, Kezia melds melody, thrash, metal, passion, enlightenment, anger, politics, punk rock and intensity. Rather than writing songs within their musical boundaries, Protest actually wrote music that they could not play, and then forced themselves to learn how to play it over the last two years.Kezia was a big jump for us, but it was the most honest, natural progression we could have possibly made, says Rody.Initially it was quite difficult to be taken seriously, as we were so young, however we've had few problems of that nature since the release of Kezia.

    Delain

    Delain is: Charlotte Wessels, Martijn Westerholt, Sander Zoer, Otto Schimmelpenninck van der Oije and Timo Somers. A lot has happened with Dutch band Delain since they unleashed their second album April Rain on the masses in 2009. An extensive headliner tour of Europe was followed by euphorically received tours of North and South America. The live impressions and pure energy that all this activity brought the band is now clearly audible in the material featured on their new material, the band's third. Delain took the time they needed to make We Are The Others, by far the most powerful, atmospheric and irresistible album of their career! All this despite the fact that the old music biz adage still holds…ah yes, the "difficult" third album! Delain's musical mastermind and keyboardist Martijn Westerholt nods in agreement. "For me these were the recording sessions from hell! I was working with a producer for the first time, so I had to let go of so many things. That's not easy for a control freak like me!", says Martijn, who mastered the situation brilliantly, despite any difficulties. Singer Charlotte Wessels also laughs and says, "Yeah, I already heard the same old wives' tale about the second album! But honestly, we have the perfect songs, songs that will blow away everything both live and on CD!" With their 2009 album, Delain had actually already arrived at a position that other bands work for years or even decades to get to. They firmly established a foothold at the very top of their genre alongside contemporaries like Evanescence and HIM. Now this Dutch formation is an indispensable part of the ever-growing, evermore exciting mainstream market for popular rock music of a darker nature. Against this backdrop, the expectations for the follow-up album to the frenetically acclaimed April Rain were very high indeed, both from the Delain fan base and from the band themselves. With We Are The Others, Delain have not only met these high expectations; they have far exceeded them. And they've made it all look easy in the process, broadening out of a niche market and audibly developing musically while remaining true to the successful sound that they lovingly developed over the years. While Martijn has been primarily responsible for songwriting duties, with Charlotte in increasing matter over the last two albums, for We Are The Others they relied more heavily than ever on team effort together with their musical partner Guus Eikens, also involving arranger Oliver Phillips in the composing department, stretching their experimental wings to try new things and ultimately came up with a more multifaceted overall sound than ever before. The band spent most of last summer with the "Tripod" producer-team, consisting of star producer Jacob Hellner (Rammstein, Clawfinger, Apocalyptica ...) and the Epicentre-Team (Fredrik Thomander und Anders Wikström / Scorpions, Backyard Babies...) in the TriPod-Studios in Stockholm, taking two months to collectively fine-tune the material for We Are The Others. "Never before have we gone as much into detail in writing the songs" Charlotte reports, referring to the multiple writing-session on songs and lyrics in Stockholm, where she was recording her vocals parallel in a second studio. "Jacob works very instinctively and has a great nose for good songs. At the same time he is the most critical producer I've ever worked with! I was around one day when they were recording the bass. Our bassist had to play the same riff over and over again, virtually for hours in a loop. Jacob listened closely and said, 'I hear a boring note in there somewhere. Try to fix that!' It was fucking hard to work with him, but it was also unbelievably fruitful and inspiring. The result is that what you hear in the songs is a highly tuned, compact band that plays well together, not some side project. We're incredibly proud of the result!" Martijn Westerholt, a workaholic himself, agrees entirely. "Our drummer was sent for two weeks of drum rehearsals to the Backyard Babies rehearsal studio located nearby. Jacob pushed every one of us to our absolute limit and in many cases beyond! He really knew how to get the maximum out of us individually, out of Delain as a band and of course out of our songs! You can find more on the recording sessions in the band's video studio at http://delain.posterous.com/. While the title We Are The Others may seem mysterious and conspiratorial at first, there is a very serious background: The lyrics to the title-track were inspired by the hate-crime against a British girl named Sophie Lancaster in 2007. She and her boyfriend were beaten comatose by a gang of youths, because of their goth looks. Sophie died from her injuries (check also: http://sophielancasterfoundation.com/). This tragedy sent shock waves throughout the world. DELAIN's response to this tragic case is expressed through the song We Are The Others. Charlotte says: "Sophie's story hit close to home for us, being part of a subculture ourselves but it's in no way an individual case; people are discriminated against -all the time- to the point of violence - based on their cultural or ethnic background everywhere. We Are The Others is our own 'outsiders anthem' for everybody who, deliberately or not, diverts from the norm. Whether it's by looking different, acting different, or choosing a different path in life then is expected from you. Delain have taken the same kind of path with We Are The Others. The band is armed with true musical hooks in tracks like "Are You Done With Me?" and "Get The Devil Out Of Me". And "I Want You" may well be the most macabre love story of the year, as Charlotte explains with a wonderfully diabolical laugh. "Although it lyricly starts like your typical romantic song, this tragic love story ends with the leading character running over her lover with a car; If she can't have him, then no one else damn well will! There aren't any actual autobiographical traits to the song – my boyfriend is doing fine (for now) – but it definitely contains some dark, most vengeful payback fantasies I admit." One of the album's less typical moments for a band of this genre is "Generation Me", where Delain demonstrate their eagerness to experiment as well as their topicality. "It's about the so-called 'iGeneration' where everyone's putting self-branding and this utopian kind of self-representation in front of everything else, we ourselves -whether we like it or not - are very much part of this generation, and in this song we make fun a little out of everyone taking themselves so seriously. With this kind of subject matter it's easy for us to be inspired. My lyrics have always been influenced by real life, from what happens around me" lyricist Wessels explains. This is also evident in Delain's powerful number "Where Is The Blood", with none other than Fear Factory shouter Burton C. Bell on guest vocals. "I met him at the Wacken Open Air festival. We immediately got along great and exchanged e-mail addresses. I think his raw voice is really perfect for the insane scream part on this track!"

    Joe Diffie

    With the release of Jason Aldean's hit "1994" earlier this year that name-checked many of Joe Diffie's twelve Number One hits, the legendary singer found himself squarely back in the hearts and minds of country fans. The multi-platinum-selling artist who dominated the charts during a hot streak in the '90's may have been absent from the radio charts for the past few years, but Joe-Joe-Joe Diffie has never slowed down – writing, touring and recording a myriad of projects including his critically acclaimed 2010 bluegrass album "Homecoming," and his recent "Roots And Boots" acoustic tour and collaborative CD "All In The Same Boat," with fellow hitmakers Sammy Kershaw and Aaron Tippin. And now he's back at it again, riding shotgun with hick-hop sensations the Jawga Boyz on a brand new single, "Girl Ridin' Shotgun," which was recently released to country radio. The single, co-written by Diffie, Phil O'Donnell and Derek Thrasher of The Jawga Boyz is a fun, up-tempo romp perfect for summertime cruising and returns Joe to the country charts where he undoubtedly belongs. The performance features D. Thrash (Derek Thrasher) on the verses as Diffie's signature vocals soar on the choruses and verses. The tune was written in part as an answer to Jason Aldean's tribute to Joe, (penned by Thomas Rhett, Luke Laird and Barry Dean) and name-checks Aldean in a nod to the monster hit that helped introduce Joe to a whole new generation of fans two decades later. With chart-toppers like "Pickup Man," "Third Rock From the Sun," and "John Deere Green," and 13 albums and over 20 Top 10 singles to his credit, Joe has little to prove at this point in his career, yet he still has a fire in his belly to make good country music. A renowned songwriter in his own right who recently turned his focus back to writing after years on the road, Joe has hits for artists like Tim McGraw, Conway Twitty, and Jo Dee Messina to his credit, and has cuts on upcoming projects for "X Factor" winner Tate Stevens, Dylan Scott, and Tyler Farr among others. He is also hard at work on an album of brand new material, due out later this year on Bigger Picture Records. The collaboration with the Jawga Boyz and the attention from the Aldean hit is opening all sorts of new doors for Joe at this point in his career, and he's excited at the prospect of working with some of music's hot new hitmakers. "We had a good time writing and recording my new song "Girl Ridin' Shotgun,' and making a video for it," says Joe. " I've been writing with a lot of new artists and I never thought that collaboration with one of them would lead to this, but I'm really glad that it has. It's a different sound for me and I'm having so much fun with it all. I can't wait to see what the future brings!" http://www.joediffie.com/

    Tommy Emmanuel

    Born: 31/05/55, Muswellbrook, New South Wales, Australia. Currently lives in the UK. Appointed Member of Australian Order (A.M.) June 2010. Tommy and his brother Phil performed live in Sydney at the closing ceremony of the Summer Olympics in 2000. The event was televised worldwide with an estimated 2.85 billion viewers. When performing together the pair will sometimes share and play just one guitar with each having one hand free. Carries C.G.P. after his name (Certified Guitar Player), awarded to him by Chet Atkins (Tommy's childhood hero and the reason he began playing at the age of 7) in July 1999. Emmanuel has said that even at a young age he was fascinated by Atkins’ musical style – sometimes referred to as Travis picking – of playing bass with the thumb and melody parts with the first two or three fingers at the same time. This technique became the basis of Tommy's guitar style. While Emmanuel has never had formal music training, his playing ability has won him fans from all over the world. He is known to play percussion parts on the body of his guitar. As a solo performer he never plays to a set list and uses a minimum of effects. He usually completes recordings in one take. Emmanuel frequently uses his left thumb to fret bass notes on the 5th and 6th strings as well as playing chords such as Am and E with just two fingers. He uses a thumb pick mostly, a flat pick or just fingers. He also integrates amongst his trademark blazing runs and kaleidoscopic chord progressions a quick note / chord "dive," imitating a tremolo system effect on his fixed-bridge acoustic guitars, by pressing the palm of his right hand against the body of the guitar directly above the fret board close to the neck joint while maintaining forward pressure with his left (fretting) hand. His main guitar is a small-bodied custom Maton EBG808, that is fitted with a pickup and an internal condenser microphone, to which he has given the nickname "Mouse" due to its quieter volume unplugged but massive sound when plugged into an amp. Two of his three main stage guitars, notably his signature TE1 Maton dreadnought, are battered and worn from his excessive playing and percussive techniques on them. He stated in 2008 at a workshop during his annual festival, Tommyfest UK (previously held in Windsor, UK and since 2010 in Harrow, UK) that all three of his stage guitars have been broken and repaired numerous times over the years.

    Here Come The Mummies

    Here Come the Mummies is an eight-piece funk-rock band of 5000 year-old Egyptian Mummies with a one-track mind. Their "Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave" is sure to get you into them (and possibly vice versa). Since their discovery, HCTM has opened for P-Funk, Al Green, and Cheap Trick; rocked Super Bowl Village; become a regular on The Bob and Tom Show; played massive festivals like Summer Camp, Common Ground, Voodoo Fest, Musikfest, Suwannee Hulaween, and Riverbend; and sold tickets by the thousands across large swaths of North America. Maybe that’s why the ladies (and some dudes) can’t stop losing their minds over these mayhem-inducing mavens of mirth. Some say they were cursed after deflowering a great Pharaoh’s daughter. Others claim they are reincarnated Grammy-Winning studio musicians. Regardless, HCTM’s mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will bend your brain, and melt your face. Get ready, for Here Come The Mummies. HCTM “‘KILLED’ it… Not only did they pack their stage - they were the hit of the night when they jumped on stage with moe. in front of 20,000.” - Jay Goldberg, Summer Camp Music Festival “Here Come The Mummies are one bad-ass band, a hybrid of Idris Muhammad, George Clinton, Ohio Players, and Earth, Wind & Fire.” -Blurt Magazine “A band unlike any other.” -examiner.com “That’s the most fun I've had in 20 years.” -Bob Kevoian, The Bob & Tom Show “Cock wobbling brilliant.” -Joe Elliott of Def Leppard www.herecomethemummies.com www.facebook.com/herecomethemummies twitter.com/hctmummies

    Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes first achieved prominence in the mid-1970s, emerging from the same New Jersey Shore music scene as his now legendary contemporary and friend Bruce Springsteen. Southside's first three albums, I Don't Want To Go Home, This Time It's for Real, and Hearts of Stone, were produced by band co-founder Steven Van Zandt (E Street Band, The Sopranos), and largely featured songs written by Van Zandt and/or Springsteen. The Van Zandt-written "I Don't Want To Go Home" became Southside's signature song, an evocative mixture of horn-based melodic riffs and sentimental lyrics. In 1982 Rolling Stone Magazine voted Hearts of Stone among the top 100 albums of the 1970s and 1980s. With their classic blend of hard-core R&B and street-level rock, molten grooves, soulful guitar licks and blistering horn section, Johnny and his Jukes continue to put their unique stamp on the Jersey Shore sound, while recalling the glory years of Otis Redding and similar Stax Records titans

    Bobby Bones
    Radio DJ. Stand-up comedian. Best-selling author. Chart-topping recording artist. TV personality. Philanthropist. Bobby Bones has built his career on the ability to multi-task. Channeling humor, honesty, and hard work, he’s also built the largest nationally syndicated morning show in country radio - "The Bobby Bones Show.” Of course, a full-time radio career hasn't stopped him from regularly hitting the stage alone as a stand-up comedian. It's a job he's enjoyed since his teenage years. It continues to be a welcome challenge, too, putting Bones face-to-face with his audience and eliminating his cast of on-air sidekicks. "I'm up there alone, telling stories from my life and sharing observations from my warped mind," he says. "It's all about honesty and awkwardness. I can't react to something my partner has just said, because there's no one else up there with me. I love the challenge. I love running the risk of failing at something, because if you fail, at least it means you're trying." 2017 saw Bones launch his wildly successful “Funny & Alone Stand Up Comedy Tour” with more than 20 sellouts across the country. In 2018, he will again hit the road bringing a brand new show - and plenty of new jokes - to his fans with the “Bobby Bones Red Hoodie Comedy Tour.” For full info and dates, go to www.BobbyBonesComedy.com

    Locash

    LOCASH is a Country music duo made up of singer-songwriters Chris Lucas and Preston Brust, natives of Baltimore, Maryland, and Indianapolis, Indiana, respectively. With a sound that fuses modern Country and classic heartland Rock with an edgy vocal blend, the independently-minded partners are revered as “one of Nashville’s hardest-working acts” (Rolling Stone) whose live show “has consistently been among the most energetic and entertaining in the country music genre” (Billboard). With two albums and eight charting singles to their credit, LOCASH broke out in 2015 with their gracious GOLD-certified hit, “I Love This Life," followed by the flirtatious GOLD-certified #1 smash, “I Know Somebody” – their first trip to the top of the Country radio airplay charts – and 2017’s fun-loving romantic anthem “Ring On Every Finger.” All three singles were part of their Reviver Records album debut, THE FIGHTERS, which was released in the summer of 2016 to Top 15 success. The follow up to THE FIGHTERS is expected in 2018, with the forthcoming album’s first single “Don’t Get Better Than That” available now on all digital platforms. As songwriters, Lucas and Brust have scored two undeniable hits (Keith Urban’s #1 “You Gonna Fly” in 2011 and Tim McGraw’s PLATINUM-certified “Truck Yeah” in 2012). In 2017, they earned their first round of awards show recognition, nominated at the ACM Awards for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, the CMT Music Awards for Duo Video of the Year (“I Know Somebody”), and the CMA Awards for Vocal Duo of the Year.

    Christopher Cross

    Christopher Cross made history with his 1980 self-titled debut album, winning five Grammy Awards, including—for the first time ever—the four most prestigious awards: Record of the Year (for the single “Sailing”), Album of the Year, Song of the Year (also for “Sailing”), and Best New Artist. Now, 30+ years after his extraordinary emergence into the music business, Cross continues his recording and performing career with a new album, Secret Ladder, that evokes the artistry of such great singer-songwriters as Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman while addressing contemporary concerns head-on – a combination which is sure to please his loyal fan base. Indeed, the 13 tracks, mostly written with his longtime collaborator Rob Meurer, continues the exploration of adult subject matter broached in his preceding album Doctor Faith (2011). “My passion and commitment to music haven’t diminished a bit, and I make no apologies for exploring mature subjects,” says the San Antonio native, now living in Austin after decades in Southern California. “Of course, I’m still a romantic at heart,” adds Cross, whose classic hits – including “Ride Like the Wind,” from Christopher Cross, and the Oscar-winning "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" from the film starring Liza Minelli and Dudley Moore – remain staples on radio to this day. This romantic side is readily evident on Secret Ladder songs like “Simple,” in which he elicits the tuneful sense of love and serenity that marked “Sailing.” But from the album’s first song, Cross evinces a sharpened focus in addition to his magic melodic touch. The bluesy “Reverend Blowhard” “is an unvarnished commentary on TV evangelists,” says Cross. He acknowledges a definite cynicism in this opening song that bears the influence of both Newman and Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, “who are lifelong influences on the songs Rob and I write.” There are other hard-hitting songs on Secret Ladder, most notably “Got To Be a Better Way,” which rails against a man “seething in his world of carbohydrates and TV” while lacking any empathy for his fellow man, and “Island of Anger.” “We look back at our lives and see the idealism when we were kids,” Cross reflects, “and then look at the way things are now and see how so many are disillusioned and almost immobilized with outrage.” Yet Cross remains a spiritual, if not religious, artist, and the Secret Ladder album title manifests this. The conceptual album cover art, by photographer/graphic designer Sandrine Lee, expressly suggests a Magritte painting in its depiction of human figures climbing the fretboard of an upright acoustic guitar surrounded by a blue sky filled with clouds, at the same time invoking Joni Mitchell’s lyric in “For the Roses”—“And pour your simple sorrow / To the sound hole and your knee.” “I write my songs on the guitar, and that’s how I realize my spirituality” says Cross. “Music is the source, the wellspring. The people coming out of the guitar’s sound hole on the cover are climbing the ladder to a higher plane.” Cross also notes that Secret Ladder’s “I Don’t See it Your Way” is a Joni Mitchell-influenced track. “I dedicated my last album to her,” says Cross. “She remains my biggest influence, musically. She’s a hero to both Rob and me. This song is about the end of a relationship, and we tried to write it in a very Joni-like feel and style.” As always, Cross enlisted the finest support musicians, including bassist Will Lee (of the Fab Faux and Late Night with David Letterman), drummer Keith Carlock (Steely Dan and Toto), guitarist Eric Johnson, saxophonist David Mann, and vocalists Michael McDonald and Jeff Foskett (Brian Wilson’s musical director). “Eric and Michael are usually on every record I make,” says Cross, and in McDonald’s case, he joins Cross vocally on the poignant and uplifting anthem, “Light the World,” which also features an African chorus alternating the lyrics in Swahili. “I have travelled to Africa with my kids, my daughter was a youth AIDS ambassador,” explains Cross. “She helped with testing in a village in Tanzania and spent another week in Kenya. I was very touched by the people I encountered there. I wrote the song with Stephen Bray who is a close friend and a wonderful collaborator. He worked with Madonna early in her career and composed music for The Color Purple on Broadway. For the Swahili chorus, we enlisted the assistance of the interpreter we had in Africa who was the head of African Studies at UCLA. It is really a magical component to the song. You feel like you know what they’re saying, even though you don’t.” “The Times I Needed You” employs a vocal chorus, arranged by Meurer, intentionally reminiscent of the Beach Boys. “It’s very much a tribute,” says Cross. “Brian Wilson’s writing was a big influence on me and Carl Wilson was my No. 1 vocal influence growing up. Years later, we became very close. Carl sang on my second album (1983’s Another Page), and we did a lot of touring together and vocal sessions for other artists. He’d always say, ‘We make a nice sound’—I just treasure that.” While Cross is an avowed pacifist, he is a big supporter of those who serve in the armed forces. Secret Ladder includes the late-added track, “We Will Remember You,” as a means of honoring their service. “My father was an Army doctor and my mother, a nurse,” he says. “I feel strongly that returning vets and those who made the ultimate sacrifice deserve to be recognized and never forgotten. The song itself is neither pro- nor anti-war. The children’s choir really enhances the message. We recorded it after the album was finished, but I felt that it definitely needed to be included.” Cross’ own children influenced the instructive “Wonderland,” a dreamy, lyrical take on reality which is enlivened by Johnson’s rock guitar play. “It’s a general thesis on where things are, a way of looking at life,” says Cross, “and how we're wishful for our kids and their future. At the same time, it’s hard not to be frustrated and cynical.” Secret Ladder ends with the loving, lushly orchestrated “A Letter to My Children.” “It’s a very personal song,” says Cross. “I wanted to make a lasting statement for my kids that reflected both the wonderful mystery of their births and my deep feelings for them now that they’re grown.” This verse from “A Letter” poignantly encapsulates the gift that is Secret Ladder: Now you’re young men and women of the world Fly the winds of kindness Let your wings unfurl I wish you peace And that sad times turn to pearls

    Silent Partner

    “Then and Now” The history of Silent Partner... It started in 1986 with the Pietosi brothers (Al and Lou) and the Zucco brothers (Jake and Mark) agreeing to start a band together in the Zucco’s basement. All that was needed was a bass player and long time friend Dave Keller stepped in. He moved away in 1987 and another old friend, Randy VanHulten, came on to form the current version of the band. It was a quick turnaround as gigs were available, a name was created, and Silent Partner was born. This was the 80’s and getting all your friends together, jumping in someone’s car and going out to see a band was a way of life for many of us! Silent Partner went on strong for years, playing 2 to 3 times a week all over the tri-state area. When not playing live, the band was recording or practicing once and sometimes twice a week. It had taken on a life of it’s own, And for many years they continued playing their special kind of “brother to brother” music, filled with classic rock cover tunes and their originals. Eventually, with full time jobs and families, they were pushed to the limit and mutually agreed to stop playing and take a much needed break, while remaining in close contact with each other. Several years later, in 2008, when Lou asked his 30 year HS class reunion committee about entertainment for the evening, he volunteered to call on his old band mates about playing this “one time” event. Silent Partner played that class reunion and hasn’t stopped since. They continue “getting the old band back together” and have never sounded better! Come see for yourself as the band continues on their perpetual “Then and Now Tour”!

    Dixie Dregs

    For guitar aficionados, Steve Morse needs no introduction, and his place in the pantheon of guitar greats is certain. But in fact, his career started with the Dixie Dregs. And now beginning March 2018, with much anticipation and in response to demand from devoted fans, the original lineup announces a return to live performance for the Dawn of the Dregs Tour! The band traces its true beginnings to the band Dixie Grit, which started in a Georgia high school with Steve on guitar and Andy West on bass. Dixie Grit morphed into the Dixie Dregs at the University of Miami School of Music, where Allen Sloan (violin) and Rod Morgenstein (drums) joined up with Steve and Andy, who were the “dregs” of Dixie Grit. The members of the Dixie Dregs remained committed to attending the University of Miami School of Music, which hosted a lively and talented musical community during their tenure, including future greats Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius, T Lavitz, and Bruce Hornsby, among many others. In 1975, the group's demo album, The Great Spectacular, was recorded at the University of Miami and then re- released on CD in 1997. After graduation, the band moved back to Augusta where Steve Davidowski (keyboards) completed the band that would eventually emerge and become known simply as The Dregs. The band paid its dues and honed its skills playing in bars and venues throughout the South in the mid-70's. They established themselves in the firmament of American instrumental music, seamlessly fusing rock with progressive and jazz elements to create a uniquely instrumental-driven style that has stood the test of time. Based on a short demo and a tip from former Allman Brothers keyboardist Chuck Leavell along with Allman/Dregs tour manager Twiggs Lyndon, Capricorn Records signed the Dixie Dregs to record Free Fall (1977). The success and critical acclaim of Free Fall announced the Dixie Dregs to the world, and after its release, they would became a cult favorite band that would have a lasting influence on much of modern rock. Over the course of 40 years, the Dixie Dregs have released eleven commercial albums of original material, and a number of compilations, reissues, and countless live bootlegs also exist. Along the way they have garnered six (!) Grammy nominations. The band has played with several well-known additional alumni and guests -- among others, Jerry Goodman (Mahavishnu Orchestra) Alex Ligertwood (Santana) and Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) -- and its original band members have played and recorded on well over 300 releases (including Deep Purple (Steve Morse) and Winger/Jelly Jam (Rod Morgenstein)). The Dawn of the Dregs tour is coming soon to a city near you!

    Puddles Pity Party

    The ‘Sad Clown with the Golden Voice’ is here with his heartfelt anthems and a suitcase full of Kleenex! This Pity Party is not all sadness and longing. The show is peppered with a brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing lots of humor with the awkward, tender moments. A veritable “Pagliacci by way of Pee-Wee Herman and David Lynch” (The AJC), Puddles Pity Party has 286k fans on Facebook and over 76 million views on YouTube for indelible interpretations of classics by ABBA, Bowie, Cheap Trick and Queen and his unforgettable mash-up of “Pinball Wizard/Folsom Prison Blues”. You may recognize him from his recent appearances on America’s Got Talent and video collaborations with Postmodern Jukebox. Puddles has toured extensively in the US at legendary venues like the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, the Kennedy Center in D.C. and the Troubadour in Los Angeles. He has also performed many times in the UK at Soho Theatre London and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Other worldwide festival appearances include the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Perth Fringe World, Melbourne International Comedy Fest, Just for Laughs Montreal, Belgium’s Gent Festival, Festival Supreme (LA), Bumbershoot Festival (Seattle), Moontower Comedy Festival (Austin), and Bethlehem’s MusikFest. “It seems like a parody. But when Puddles opens his mouth to sing, it’s beautiful. Operatic.” - The Boston Globe “Fantastically brilliant…originality at its best.” - Simon Cowell “His special effect is a textured voice laced with melancholy…what makes him transcend the trope is his vulnerability.” - The New York Times “Clever and often hysterically funny… (Puddles) is ideally suited to songs popularized by belters old and new like Tom Jones, Sia and Celine Dion, all of which he performs with tear-jerking bravura…” - LA Weekly “Pagliacci by way of Pee-Wee Herman and David Lynch.” - The Atlanta Journal Constitution
