Rock Bands KISS, Mötley Crüe, Announce $250,000 Donation to National Chamber Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes Program

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on July 25, 2012

Rock Bands KISS, Mötley Crüe, Announce $250,000 Donation to National Chamber Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes Program

Members of Both Bands Present Check to
Help Veterans and Military Spouses Find Meaningful Employment

BRISTOW, VA—The U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced that rock bands KISS and Mötley Crüe are donating $250,000 to the National Chamber Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes program. The band members from KISS and Mötley Crüe presented a check to Hiring Our Heroes at the kickoff of THE TOUR of 2012 in Bristow, VA.

“We are grateful and excited about the generous gift from KISS, and Mötley Crüe,” said Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Schmiegel (Ret.), executive director of the U.S. Chamber’s Hiring Our Heroes program. “This donation will allow us to hold hiring fairs around the country, as well as refine them to offer transition assistance workshops, ultimately helping us make even a greater difference on the critical issue of veteran and military spouse unemployment.”

The relationship with Hiring Our Heroes began when KISS and Mötley Crüe pledged to hire a veteran as a roadie as part of the National Chamber Foundation and Capital One’s “Hiring 500,000 Heroes” campaign. Army veteran and longtime KISS fan Paul Jordan was selected after a review of 1,900 applications received by Hiring Our Heroes.  Jordan, who is from Buford, Georgia, served three tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. The goal of the initiative is to engage the business community in committing to hire half a million veterans and military spouses by the end of 2014. 

In March 2011, the Chamber, in conjunction with the National Chamber Foundation, launched its Hiring Our Heroes program, a nationwide effort to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. The Chamber started the program to improve public-private sector coordination in local communities, where veterans and their families are returning every day. To date, Hiring Our Heroes has hosted more than 220 hiring fairs in 48 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, helping more than 10,400 veterans and military spouses find employment.

The National Chamber Foundation (NCF), a non-profit affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is dedicated to identifying and fostering public debate on emerging critical issues. They provide business and government leaders with insight and resources to address tomorrow’s challenges.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.            @USChamber

Alabama Shakes to play The Brown Theatre

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on July 11, 2012
WFPK Presents Alabama Shakes
with Fly Golden Eagle
Monday, October 8th at 8pm
The W.L. Lyons Brown Theatre
Reserved seating / All Ages
Tickets $25

Produced by Kentucky Center & Production Simple


Now, with expectations at fever pitch, the Alabama Shakes have delivered Boys & Girls—six of the songs from that initial Nashville session, and another five recorded during the rest of the year. From the heart-rending title song to such stomps as “Rise to the Sun,” the album demonstrates the sense of groove and space the band learned from their idols, along with a blistering force and emotion that simply can’t be learned.Overwhelmed by the response they’ve already received, there is one perception of the band that they want to challenge. “A lot of people think we’re a soul revival act,” says Cockrell. “That’s an honor to me, classic R&B is my favorite kind of music, but everybody has their own influences. Brittany is way more into rock and roll—she likes things pretty amped up most of the time.””Retro soul is not what we’re going for, though it’s understandable why people say it,” says Howard. “We take inspiration from that, but we all understand Black Sabbath, too. On the record, we left a lot of room for whatever we want to do in the future.”The release of Boys & Girls marks the arrival of a major new rock and roll band. To the members themselves, though, what’s been most exciting has been the reaction they have felt on stage, whether tiny local dates or under the glare of the media.”It seems like everyone can tell how into it we are,” says Cockrell. “Every show, people say they can feel how much we love what we’re doing.

Tedeschi Trucks Band releases “DARLING BE HOME SOON” VIDEO DEBUT

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on July 7, 2012
Tedeschi Trucks Band
We’re pleased to bring you the world premiere of our new video, for “Darling Be Home Soon” off Tedeschi Trucks Band’s recent live album Everybody’s Talkin’. Written by John Sebastian of the Lovin Spoonful (one of Derek’s dad’s favorite bands), the track was famously covered by Joe Cocker’s group Mad Dogs & Englishmen, a group that remains a major inspiration for the 11-piece traveling musical circus that is TTB.

TTB’s version of “Darling Be Home Soon” is a wonderful showcase of Susan’s vocals soaring above the gentle swell of the band’s groove. Featuring a trumpet solo by Maurice Brown and a slow-building extended solo by Derek as the band brings it down to a whisper behind him, “Darling Be Home Soon” is easily one of the highlights of an album with no shortage of beautiful vocals and show-stopping solos.

We’re sharing the video with fans first, and we hope you’ll do us a favor and pass it along to a friend or two of your own. Thanks to all for their ongoing support of TTB and all their love forEverybody’s Talkin’.

Indaba Remix Contest – Voting Starts Tomorrow

Phase one of our contest on Indaba Music to remix “Everybody’s Talkin'” is winding down as submissions are due today. But Derek and Susan need your help in choosing a winner. Visit the contest page, check out some of the submissions and vote for your favorite effort to make sure that the grand prize (a ’61 Gibson SG reissue, a PRS amp and a Shure vocal mic) goes to the most deserving effort. (Indaba Media is the sponsor of this contest. For Official Rules, clickhere. Sony Music Entertainment is not a sponsor of this contest.)

Since debuting in 2003 with a multi-chart gold single, racking up reams of critical praise, opening for the Rolling Stones and playing and recording with such legends as Willie Nelson and Carlos Santana,Rockpango further enforces All Music Guide‘s assertion that Los Lonely Boys are “one of America’s premier rock bands.”  The band has released 7 studio albums, 2 live albums, and 2 live concert DVDs, including Texican Style Live, an account of the largest ever South-by-Southwest audience of 25,000. The band continues to pervade pop culture in national ads for Budweiser, a track on Guitar Hero, guest spots on Carlos Santana’s All That I Am, and countless TV performances on Leno, Kimmel, Letterman and Conan. Recently, Billboard notched their hit Heaven at #4 on their “Top 50 Adult Contemporary Songs Ever.”
Press Praise for Los Lonely Boys
Texican trio Los Lonely Boys are a kick-ass band that can set a simple melody on fire.
Billboard Magazine
Los Lonely Boys’ Henry Garza is the most underrated, underappreciated young guitarist in rock today, period. Stunning fretwork, unbelievable tones.
The Grand Rapids Press
Los Lonely Boys are putting the party back into what they call ‘Texican Rock & Roll.’ You get the groove and rhythm of Tejano, the honesty of country, the sultriness of the blues and the beat of rock & roll.
Glide Magazine

More on Los Lonely Boys and Rockpango 

Can anything even more magical happen in the already charmed career of Los Lonely Boys? You bet. It’s called Rockpango, their first self- produced long player on their own LonelyTone/Playing In Traffic Records. And yeah, it’s magical indeed.
At least as magical — and maybe more so — as debuting in 2003 with a multi-chart gold single, selling millions of albums, winning a Grammy, racking up reams of critical acclaim, opening for The Rolling Stones, and many more accomplishments for the Texican rock’n’roll trio of brothers. Plus playing and recording with such legends as Willie Nelson and Carlos Santana, associations that give a strong hint at what’s at work here on Rockpango.
After proving themselves one of the most stunning and wonderful musical success stories of the last decade, Los Lonely Boys are now carving out their legend with their fourth studio album. Even though the band has already shown they can “up the ante with greater musicianship and confidence” (People) every time out, on Rockpango they heighten the trajectory, open up their sound, and show what flourishing maturity feels like from these veteran yet still young and burgeoning musical talents.
Rockpango is a spirit and sound coined by Los Lonely Boys that takes the next step from fandango (a beat of loving celebration) and then huapango (another infectious Latin rhythm that gets the fiesta cooking) to a full-scale Tex-Mex American roots rock party galore. Bursting out of the gate with the simmering and slinky “American Idle” that scans today’s tough economic times, and wrapping up 10 tracks later with the fierce and fiery assertion that love is the answer on “Believe,” Los Lonely Boys look at the big picture around us with the concerns and continuing faith that come with well-grounded adulthood.
Their ever-expanding musical vision fills the set with new facets that further reveal the group’s already notable artistic diversity. “16 Monkeys” is a delightfully funky slice of infectious neo-bohemian wit and wordplay, while orchestration by the Tosca String Quartet adds classic rock-pop sophistication on the achingly beautiful “Road To Nowhere” and the Beatle-esque gem “Smile.” And they fuse deep blues with a hip-hop twist on “Porn Star,” which includes a razor-sharp rap at the tail end by Kush, one of their Texas extended family relations.
They soar on “Fly Away,” rip it up to percolating Latin beats on “Love In My Veins” and “Baby Girl,” and reassert their mastery of the classic music that influences them as demonstrated on their recent 1969 EP. They deliver ‘60s style blues-rockers on the rousing title tune and powerfully loping “Change The World” — two more slices of their spot-on social commentary and consciousness.
The trademark Los Lonely Boys genetic vocal blend is deeper, richer, more fluent and confident than ever. The rhythms are utterly irresistible as well as flush with smart syncopation and muscular drive, abetted on some tracks by tour percussionist Carmelo “Melo” Torres. The brothers’ songwriting skills stamp indelibility on every winning number. And Henry Garza goes even beyond what Guitar World hails as being a “guitarist with chops out his ass who doesn’t care about chops [and] just opens up and plays.” Joined by veteran Austin player Riley Osbourn on keyboards, Los Lonely Boys deliver and more on Rockpango.
“I’m super proud of it,” says JoJo Garza, bassist and middle brother in the triumvirate. “It’s just progress, maturation and growth. Growing up, being older, seeing the world we’re living in. It’s also touching base with home.”
Los Lonely Boys tale to date is already the stuff legends are made of: Playing behind their father as kids in cantinas and honky-tonks. Moving to Nashville in their teens to try to win a record deal. Returning to their native Texas, where the brothers made their bones on the club scene as a live act. Releasing their self-titled debut, which goes double platinum, and penning a #1 radio hit in “Heaven.”
Two more stellar studio albums followed: Sacred (2006) and Forgiven (2008). In 2009, they cut 1969, an EP that leaps back four decades to reveal how the group’s roots extend well past their birthdates on songs by The Beatles, Santana, The Doors, Buddy Holly and Tony Joe White. 2010 brought about the release of Keep On Giving: Acoustic Live! a snapshot of their recent acoustic tour.
So after all that, what’s left but to meet the new decade with the great leap forward, upward, outward and onward of Rockpango? “It was just time to grow and change,” explains JoJo. “But not change too much. It’s kind of like a tree. A tree doesn’t actually change much as it grows. It gets taller, grows more branches, gets thicker and stronger.
“I think it’s one of our best if not our best,” he adds. “We took the ball and I think we scored a touchdown.”
And after eight years of championship seasons, Rockpango paves the way for Los Lonely Boys to enter the rock’n’roll pantheon of legendary musical artists while also remaining true to themselves. “We’re still Lonely Boys,” JoJo insists, chuckling in agreement that they are also now Los Lonely Men who have truly come of age on their latest. “We’re still family, we’re still three brothers, we’re still doing what the good Lord has blessed us with, and that’s singing and playing for people who really want to listen.”

David Gray at Iroquois Amphitheater

David Gray visited the Iroquois Amphitheater, Louisville, KY, on  a 103% Friday evening. The record breaking heat didn’t seem to slow down Gray or his audience as he ran through his arsenal of popular songs while wearing his trademark suit. Performing to his second consecutive sold out audience Gray may have set another record by filling the amphitheater.

The high temperatures didn’t seem to bother his voice or the audience as they sang together on “Sail Away and many other of their favorites. Although still over 90 degrees after sundown no one seemed to care as they watched Gray move between piano and guitar during the show.

Yuna  open the show with an entertaining set that highlighted her beautiful voice and showcased her talent on guitar and the ukelele.


Yuna started out as a solo MySpace artist in 2006, singing in both English and Malay.Yuna’s meteoric rise in the Malaysian indie music scene is largely due to the strong following she gained via Myspace.
