Inside Music Today March 30 Show

It has been a happy week here at IMT since the weather is getting slightly warmer, which indicates spring is coming!  But what makes us happier is all the positive responses we have received concerning the In Concert Road Shows that we have started to plan.  We are putting finishing touches on the acoustic show at the Shamrock Pub and just in the beginning stages of  planning the show for our young bands, No Commitment, Volt, If All Else Fails and Half Daze.

Please keep your e-mails coming, in support of any of these upcoming shows.  Negotiations are in progress!

This week’s show takes us back to the Sunday Night Open Mic at Dr. Lou’s Place from a few week’s ago.  We have Mike & Flora performing a Flora Newberry song from that evening.  Mike & Flora will be one of the acts performing at the Shamrock Pub In Concert Road Show.  Then we have an original song by our producer Bill, featuring him with Artisan from a few years back.

Daddy Long Legs returns with a second song from the evening with Bucks County Open Mic Night at Pasquale’s.  Then we have an interview with Jimi Chanti and the newly finished concept video from Jimi Chanti and Nightspell 13.  Check out this video that highlights the talents of Bill & Rob’s editing skills!

Musicians, think about recording concept videos.  Just one other way to showcase your talents!

Next week’s show will feature Dr. Lou, Nicki Sbaffoni and Mike Rocket, plus some info about all the new things Dr. Lou has been pulling together. He’ll tell you about his new Sauce & Dressing and his new second location for Dr. Lou cuisine and radio show.  We wish him all the best with his additional new ventures!

We are also happy to say we will be back at Dr. Lou’s Place in Roebling this Sunday evening, March 31, around 7pm.  We are lucky to be catching an act from England and they are stopping by Dr. Lou’s on their tour.  Should be a fun TV taping evening, so stop on by!

Again, thank you to everyone for all the support you are giving Inside Music Today.  We are trying our best to provide some exciting “live” events for our talented musicians and our audience.  Please keep in touch and let us know what you would like.

Thanks for watching and have a Happy Easter!

Inside Music Today March 23 Show

We are very busy planning new events for the upcoming spring and summer seasons, including a show with our 4 young bands.  Thank you to everyone who has contacted us about the show we are working on, which will feature Volt, Half Daze, If All Else Fails and No Commitment.  We love hearing from you, so please keep your support coming!

On to this week’s show.  We are featuring the artists from the Bucks County Open Mic Night at Pasquale’s.  Lou Kramer opened the show with Firecracker Betty as back-up.  We have a song from Daddy Long Legs and then John Kelly and Dan Robbins from Of the Sea performed as a duo.  Our friend John Monzo came out to this open mic so we could hear another one of his tunes.  After hearing the fantastic guitar solos from Barry Bennedetta and Messenger, I found out Barry has toured with Ozzy Osbourne for several years.  Barry, we must have you back for an informative interview!

The March 30th show will feature our producer Bill performing one of his originals from when he was gigging with Artisan.  Written several years ago, this song is very relevant today.  Bill, we always knew you were ahead of your time!

Mike and Flora return with another new Flora Newberry song taped a few weeks back at their Sunday Night Open Mic at Dr. Lou’s Place.  If you enjoy Daddy Long Legs on this week’s show, you will be happy that they are returning March 30th also.

IMT is presenting the premiere of the recently finished concept video from Nightspell 13, complete with Bill’s interview with Jimi Chanti, Nightspell 13‘s composer, guitarist & producer.  The editing talents of Bill & Rob are displayed on this really cool video!

We want to congratulate Dr. Lou for the bottling of his Original Sauce & Dressing.  If you’ve ever had Dr. Lou’s wings or cheese steaks, you know you need to buy this sauce!

We appreciate Dr. Lou for being our longest running sponsor and wish him much continued success with Dr. Lou’s Place and his new Original Sauce & Dressing. We also appreciate all the bands he has provided for us from his open stage.  Watch the March 30th show and learn more about how to purchase Dr. Lou’s delicious and fantastic condiment!

The planning of our first IMT In Concert Road Show at the Shamrock Pub is coming together.  We should have finalized information by next week.  Thanks to everyone for hanging in there while we pull this all together.  It certainly is not easy!

Thanks for watching Inside Music Today and enjoy the weekend! Remember to patronize our sponsors and thank them for supporting Inside Music Today!

Inside Music Today March 16 Show

Everyone here at Inside Music Today had a much better week this week.  After a couple of tough weeks of bad weather, we are back on track.  We finally were able to tape our first complete evening of acts at Howard Durann’s  Bucks County Open Mic Night at Pasquale’s in Levittown, PA.  We had a fun night and enjoyed all the artists that performed.  A number of performers from that evening will be featured on the March 23rd show.

This week we feature the very talented young bands that we have had the pleasure of working with over this past year.  If you have not had the chance to catch Volt, Half Daze, If All Else Fails and No Commitment on any of our previous shows, please watch this week. You will find these extremely talented young artists have all the basics to go far in the music business.  IMT is happy to be one of the stepping stones along the way.

On to the March 23rd show, featuring 5 acts from our March 13 taping at Bucks County Open Mic Night.  Lou Kramer performs an original song, with Firecracker Betty as back-up.  We taped two songs from Daddy Long Legs, so you’ll see one on this show and another on a future show.  John Kelly & Dan Robbins from the band Of the Sea performed this evening as a duo.  In speaking with John afterwards, I found out he had been on Inside Music Today in the early years with another band.  It was great to see that he is still writing music and performing.

John Monzo has been on IMT previously and it was great to hear him once again.  Thanks John for coming out and being a part of this first taping at Pasquale’s!  We had a special treat from a touring guitarist, Barry Bennedetta and the band Messenger.  Barry has toured with Ozzy Osbourne and a number of other artists.  We are happy to welcome Barry to Inside Music Today!

We are still working on setting up the In Concert Road Shows.  So much work to do and so little time, but this will all come together in due time.

Thanks so much for watching Inside Music Today! If you like our show, please patronize our generous sponsors and let them know you heard about them on IMT!
