This past week we were joined by a cool jazz group in town, The Next One Up Sextet. The Next One Up Sextet is a cool music group performing America’s music, Jazz. Super swinging, cool and hip, with swanky, jump, jive, and wail thrown into the mix for good measure. The group features Ayn Wood on vocals. Don’t pigeonhole them, they play Jazz, Bebop and Swing! They often play at Hannah’s in Dayton. If you get a chance to see them, take the plunge. You will not be disappointed. During their stop on YTAA, we talked about jazz, how they select standard and current songs to perform, the challenges of forming a group with busy musicians and to top it all off they played three songs for us live in the studio! We hope to convince them to return!
One of the perks of doing YTAA is the ability to learn about all kinds of bands, music, artwork and creative efforts around the Miami Valley!
This past Tuesday, members El Muerto & Infinity of the Luchas Rockers Team Void visited the YTAA HQ!
That is right! The one and only Luchas Rocker Champions Team Void returned to the YTAA HQ on Tuesday, May 15th to talk about rocking the living with their grave digging groovy sounds, amazing guitars and the eternal nature of the void. We were only able to talk with them through a very special hex on El Muerto and Infinity so that they could tell us all about their latest project ‘Cursed to Rock the Living, ‘ their ‘Live at the Shrunken Head’ CD and their future shows and appearance in a Troma film based on William Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
If you could not listen due to your duties being a member of the living, you can still preview three tracks from the new EP: http://ow.ly/JB4b30jP3NB!
See you at the upcoming Team Void shows on May 19th at the Tree Bar in Columbus, Fellow Grave Diggers!
And do not ever forget that the Luchas Rock and Roll Champions Team Void has some very cool videos for you to watch.
Remember: DEATH IS THE BEGINNING, NOT THE END. CURSED TO ROCK THE LIVING… THREE DEAD FREEDOM FIGHTERS CREATE MUSIC AS THEY ABSORB WHAT’S USEFUL, AND DISCARD THE REST.
REMEMBER GRAVE DIGGERS, EVERYTHING AND NOTHING IS IN THE VOID.
The Connells are playing a few dates that are likely to sell out, so make plans to go see them.

The Connells played a fantastic Sold-Out Show in Richmond, VA on May 5th! By permission of the band and the band’s management we were allowed to capture the first few minutes of the show!
This weekend at The Connells’ SOLD OUT show in Richmond, VA we saw Matt McMichael’s new project ‘Surrender Human.’ Absolutely loved them! Great stuff! Surrender Human is a Chapel Hill rock and roll machine consisting of Matt McMichaels (guitar) formerly of lakes&woods and Mayflies USA, Robert Sledge (bass) formerly in Ben Folds Five and Tony Stiglitz (drums) who has played in lakes&woods, Jett Rink and Chris Stamey. Everybody sings because rock music is best when shared.
Speaking of sharing, you need to hear them! So take a little trip to soundcloud and enjoy!
