Inside Music Today May 4 Show

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.

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 February 2 Show

On this week’s show, we are bringing you four acts we have taped at Dr. Lou’s Place and one concept video.  Our concept video features Jimi Chanti and Nightspell13 recorded right in the studio.  We taped 3 Noodle Stew about a year ago at Dr. Lou’s.  Then from our recent 5-act taping at Dr. Lou’s Place, we have a new song from Angel Casiano, which I’m sure will be included on his new CD.

That same evening, Angel Casiano brought along some friends from his open mic nights.  Cory Walters hung in there all night and was our last performer to record that evening.  Thank you, Cory, for your patience because you were definitely worth the wait!  We feature one song from Cory this week, with more to come in upcoming weeks.

Earlier in the evening we recorded If All Else Fails.  They are a very talented, young band and live only a few towns down Route 130 from Room Two Studios.  Thank you, Kevin, for calling us and requesting to be a part of IMT.

Next week IMT is straying from our normal path by featuring only one band for the entire show.  The band is Half Daze and we recorded them on that same evening.  This is another young band and they certainly know where they want to go.  They had enough confidence to ask if we could devote the entire show to feature their music.  Since it seemed a good time to try something new, we are honoring their request.  So the February 9 show will feature only music written and performed by Half Daze.

This one week format change is only one aspect of the new things coming from Inside Music Today.  Much more to come in the next few months.  All things come to those who wait, but can only be accomplished one step at a time.  So hang in there for some really cool things coming our way!

Enjoy the show and enjoy your weekend!

Inside Music Today Late October-November 3

I hope everyone got through the storm okay.  We’re behind again, this time due to the storm.  We were lucky to only be out of power for 24 hours.  But that was just long enough to put things behind schedule.  But I am so glad we came through okay and we were able to get another show for you.

We are continuing to bring artist performances from the Paul Kurrey fundraiser.  This week we have acoustic acts Jack McTamney, Terence Donnelly and Nicki Sbaffoni.  Dr. Lou & the Privileged Few are on board with a Paul Kurrey song.  Paul, I know you’re up in New York and can’t watch tonight, but next week I hope you’ll be watching on You Tube.  This  is Dr. Lou doing this for you!

We have a few more shows in the next few weeks featuring artists from the fundraiser.  After those shows run, we will be featuring some concept videos being taped at this time from Nightspell 13.  Our producer Bill has worked with Jimi Chanti recording keyboard tracks for this and past Nightspell CD’s.  This new CD, Carnival of Nights, will be on CD Baby and theorchard.com.  Looking forward to presenting these videos to our viewers.

Also, thanks Jimi for the great CD release party!  Always fun to party after all the work is done!

Again, hope everyone is okay after the storm and hope you can tune in to tonight’s show.

Our October 20 show featured music by Blue Heather, Mighty Parrot, October Baby with Lisa Bouchelle, the Good Medicine Band with David Weber, and Wendy Betz & the Riseing! Watch it NOW on YouTube!

On October 27, there was more original music by Wendy Betz & the Riseing, plus concert footage from the Philadelphia Music Scene ROCKS for Paul Kurrey by these bands:  Dr. Lou & the Privileged Few, Blue Heather, Angel Casiano and Kenn Kweder! It’s available on YouTube now!
