twentysixteenAlso on tap for the program is a very cool cover of ‘You Spin Me Round’ from Gregg Stewart.  This sounds completely different than what Pete and the boys in Dead or Alive came up with.  And Mr. Stewart has an an entire record of covers from artists who passed in 2016, appropriately titled ‘TwentySixteen.’

We will also have some #LookingBackIndie from Van Morrison and Crowded House.  We are also continuing our quest to get one more show from Smug Brothers!  Say it with us “One! More! Show!”  And although everyone thinks that Madness — yeah that band! — has not put out new music since ‘Our House,” we have a cool song from a record that they released just last year!

Co ManAnd since attendance is mandatory at the Company Man Retreat on August 4th we have a few songs from Company Man in the set!   We cannot wait for our net worth to move from boring billions to terrific trillions!  Thanks CO man!

See you Tuesday, August 1st around 3pm over at WUDR.udayton.edu!

Last night we saw Frontier Folk Nebraska

1One of the amazing benefits of living in The Gem City – Dayton, Ohio is the opportunity to see so many terrific bands that simply blow you away and demonstrate the power of music!  One of those moments happened last week with Pure Acoustic at The Old Yellow Cab/Tavern!

This weekend we saw Salvadore Ross, Frontier Folk Nebraska and Human Cannonball at Blind Bob’s in the Oregon District of Dayton, Ohio.  And while all bands were fantastic, Frontier Folk Nebraska — from just down the road in Covington, KY — were powerful.  It was a great night of great songs, amazing guitar players, bouncing bass lines and some fine drumming from all three bands!   Remember in the words of Mrs. Dr. J:  “support your local music scene!” — its a lifestyle and a mantra of great music! 

5We have seen FFN several times in the past but last night the band demonstrated the reason that they are so damn good: great singing, tight and expressive harmonies, solid drumming, a bass line that just did not quit and, of course, fantastic guitar work!  We look forward to the band’s upcoming live record that was recorded at the Southgate house in Cincinnati and will be available within days!  You need this record.  You should go pre-order the record right now!  We did.  You will love this band and their fantastic songs!  Do not miss a chance to see them when they are out!  Trust us this band delivers the goods!
