With our first road show under our belt and a few of the acts being aired this week, we are in countdown mode toward our 19th anniversary concert. More info on that after we introduce this week’s artists.
This week our featured artists include Mike & Flora performing a Mike Riley original song. Mike and Flora definitely entertained the crowd at the Shamrock Pub. They had Bill and Angel join in on a Doobie Brothers song, plus the club regulars loved Flora’s trumpet solos. We can’t air the cover tunes, but come out to our next road show and enjoy the many layers of our artists talents.
Speaking of our anniversary concert, we stopped by to see Mayor Chuck Cahn of Cherry Hill, NJ. This show includes the first part of the interview between Bill and the mayor discussing the upcoming concert. How wonderful it is that the mayor and the township are looking forward to hosting IMT’s 19th anniversary concert.
Next week’s show will feature an original from If All Else Fails, plus a Flora Newberry song from Mike & Flora. Both songs from our road show at the Shamrock Pub. Then we have another concept video from Angel Casiano. Angel was with us that evening at the Shamrock, but in the midst of the combined performance with Bill, Angel, Mike & Flora, we didn’t get to Angel’s original. So he gave us a video he recorded recently. Thank you Angel. It’s nice to change things up once in awhile! Also, congratulations to Angel for becoming our new Events Coordinator! Angel, thank you for coming on board, I certainly need the help!

The May 11th show features The Trump Boyz performing at a marina in Delanco, NJ. Looking back on our 18th anniversary concert, we have KJA & the Lonely Teardrops, Dr. Lou and the Privileged Few and Dan Casper.
This show also features Bill, Dr. Lou and Angel Casiano discussing how easy it is to access the Out On The Town Entertainment Guide online. They show you how easy it is to check out all the info this exceptional publication offers everyone each month. Club patrons and musicians alike turn to OOT to keep them updated with, who is playing where, plus all the latest dining and drink specials. And being able to access this info online, means you always have the info you need at your fingertips! Everyone watch and learn. You’ll be so glad you did!
Room Two Productions is proud to present Inside Music Today’s very first In Concert Road Show! It’s an all-acoustic show at the Shamrock Pub in Philly. We’ll be there taping from 5 to 9 PM today. Why not come out and enjoy this concert in person? Then sit back and watch these talented bands’ best acoustic performances on future episodes of Inside Music Today!
Participating bands include
Tonight’s IMT features a second song from our friends The Black Feathers.
Tune in for their special harmonies and remember, they were here at Dr. Lou’s Place all the way from England. What a great night of entertainment that was!
This program also features two acts from our April 17th taping at Dave & Buster’s at the Bucks County Open Mic Night with Howard Durann. Tonight you will enjoy a song from Bob Petitti. We also bring you a performance from Great Blue Buddha. It was really cool to find out when we arrived for the taping, that Dante del Vecchio was in this band. Dante was on IMT during our first year. It is so good to run into people that have been on our show over the years.
We had some requests to run once more the concept video we made with Jimi Chanti and Nightspell 13. So here it is in tonight’s show. We have been receiving many more inquiries lately about concept videos. They are more costly, but when completed, a great accomplishment. Plus it is always something unique to have in a bands repertoire. So artists, keep this in mind!
So that is tonight’s show! Please visit us tomorrow night at the Shamrock Pub in Philly. It will be a new and unique experience! Check this site tomorrow for complete info on our Acoustic In Concert Road Show.
It has been a very hectic week finalizing preparations for IMT‘s 1st acoustic In Concert Road Show. We are also in the midst of preparations for the Croft Farm Rockfest ’13. So it’s a bit crazy, tons of work and also fun. But first a little info about this week’s show.
From our April 17th taping at Dave & Buster’s we are bringing you Lou Kramer with back-up by Firecracker Betty. John Monzo has another original song for you this week that we taped on that evening. We also met rapper Diverse Character the same evening, and he is featured on this program. Angel Casiano is part of the staff of Bucks County Open Mic Night and he gave us a copy of a concept video he had done recently and you will get to view it on this week’s show.
Next week we’re bringing you a second song from The Black Feathers from England. Can’t wait to hear their beautiful harmonies once again. Then we are back to the Dave & Buster’s taping with a song from Bob Pettiti and one from Great Blue Buddha.
I am asking all singers, musicians and friends to come out to the Shamrock Pub, 2nd & Reed St. in Center City, Philly, May 5, 5pm to 9pm. Please come out and support our 1st acoustic In Concert Road Show. If this is a success, that means more bands can be booked in more places. IMT wants to show off all the talent that passes through the show. We want to reach more audiences through more venues. The audience seeing you on TV is one thing, but performing “live” is what it’s all about. Please support this event and let’s keep IMT In Concert shows going!
Also, mark your calendars for June 8 ( June 9 raindate) for the Croft Farm Rockfest ’13. We are so lucky to have friends in the right places that made it possible to acquire this venue. This is a first for Cherry Hill to host an event like this. We also want this to be successful, for the same reasons as above. IMT is trying our best to open doors so talented artists have venues to show their craft. Artists, please support other artists. It will surely come back to you.
So please come out to our events. Just remember, Bill always has really cool surprises at the end of the shows. So come out and enjoy an evening of music. If you need further info concerning the shows, go to our website below or e-mail us at the address below. I’m happy to answer any questions.
All of us at IMT are excited. We want to thank Mike Vagnoni from Out On The Town Entertainment Guide for featuring a very wonderful article about Inside Music Today in his April issue. A big thank you to Dr. Lou for using his time and talents to write about our program. We are very blessed to have Mike and Lou offering their assistance, so more talented artists will be aware of the opportunities IMT can offer. Thank you so much!
We are featuring on this week’s show The Count Josephine Band. John Carr has been a little under the weather, so I’m hoping his band being on IMT will make him feel a bit better. We will be seeing John in the not too distant future, since he has agreed to be a part of our 19th anniversary show. John, it will be so good to see you again!
We also have John Cantamessa back. I know our media consultant, Barb, will be glad of that! Dave Weber and his lovely wife, Donna Delany have returned, as have Box of Roxx. This is a great line-up of talent!
Next week we have a concept video from Angel Casiano. Then we feature some of the acts we taped just this week at the Bucks County Open Mic Night, this time from Dave & Buster’s. John Monzo had a new song for us, as did Lou Kramer with back-up by Firecracker Betty. Rounding out the show, a rap performance from Diverse Character. Thank you to Howard Durann for inviting us to come out to Dave & Buster’s to capture some more new talent. We’ll have more from that evening on the May 4th show.
If you’re making plans for Cinco de Mayo, please consider coming out to our first acoustic In Concert Road Show at the Shamrock Pub, 2nd & Reed St., Center City, Philly. We’ve planned a fun night of music with some really cool surprises. Come join in the fun Sunday, May 5 from 5pm to 9pm.
We’ve added some bands to the 19th Anniversary Concert. Joining Volt, Half Daze, No Commitment and If All Else Fails on June 8 will be The Count Josephine Band, Dr. Lou and the Privileged Few and Liquid Island.
