It wasn’t until February 11th 2017 that I came to know your band. My band Smittix, Sly Fox and the Hustlers, Mark Slavin and Bad Mothers did a show at The Hangar on the Hudson in Troy. I was hearing a lot of good things about you guys from people on the local scene and […]

It can be said that we will never renew the beauty of the world until we can recognize the beauty and purpose of even what we throw away. And it’s the creative innovators among us who, day in and day out, determine that one man’s trash is their treasure. Is this the one who fixes […]

Writing is the evil twin of music. Well, maybe not evil, but there isn’t a word that readily comes to this writer’s mind for the relationship. Maybe Yin-Yang? Lovers? Each borrows from the other, and each feeds into the other. But the world of musicians, bands, and venues is much different than that of writers, […]

He was the originator, not the imitator. He was the Georgia Peach. He was the prettiest person in Rock and Roll. Little Richard, the True King of Rock and Roll, is Dead. Richard was born Richard Penniman on December 5th in Macon, Georgia, and among his musical influences were Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Mahalia Jackson. […]

One of the best things about living on the west coast in the 1970’s was the music.  We saw the best shows there.  Paul and I had been “Deadheads” for a while before making it west.  So far, we’d only seen east coast shows.  The Grateful Dead was a San Francisco band.  We didn’t follow […]
