The Extended Play Sessions American Roots Music Television announced the return of funk-jam masters The Get Right Band, who will be in the studio for a Session on Sunday, May 24th at 7 pm. I saw this band the last time they were at the Sessions and they were a blast!
Come share some fabulous music and friendship at this Session! Read the rest of this entry
When I was introduced to Darlingside a couple of years ago at the Outside the Box Festival (an incredible free festival which is returning to Boston this summer), I remarked that I had discovered my new favorite band. I now see them whenever I can, most recently at Arts at the Armory. Yes, it’s an old armory which has been converted to an up-and-coming arts center.
This Boston-based band has developed a devoted following over the past few years that I have no doubt will continue to grow as they headline larger venues; this show was promoted by Bowery Boston which I hope will prove to be a lucrative relationship for Darlingside.
My review of this show can be read on No Depression.
Each time I listen to indie folk artist Heather Maloney’s new album, Making Me Break, I decide on a new favorite song. As I write this, I believe the title song is my favorite but I know that will change.
When I read that Freddy Cole would appear at Regattabar, I knew I had to be in the audience. I never had the chance to see his famous older brother, Nat King, because I was too young when he died at a young age but I did not want to miss Freddy and have any regrets about it.
I am happy I attended one of his shows; Freddy may be 83 years young, but his piano playing is still top-notch and his voice lovely.
