Amenti Rover

Tonight we’re premiering a new band, Amenti Rover.  We met and taped them at the “Rock Out Hunger” event in Burlington Twp. a few weeks back.  They’re an excellent rock band that put on a very enjoyable show.  We have Mike & Flora from our Road Show at The Shamrock and Wendy Betz and the Riseing taped at The Bus Stop in Pitman, NJ.  Then we return to the Medford Fireworks for an original from No Commitment.  What a fantastic evening of music from these young artists.  They have a great future ahead of them.

August 10th Amenti Rover will return along with more from the Breast Cancer Fundraiser taped at Dr. Lou’s Place.  More music from Riverz Edge Band, Ginger Coyle and Underground Rats rounds out the show. We appreciate the fact that these artists donated their time to perform for such a worthy cause.

Next week I should have some upcoming dates for Road Shows and other events.

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 2 Show

We are very sorry that IMT did not air this past Saturday.  The station has assured us that the show that should have aired February 23 will air this Saturday, March 2.  We do want to thank everyone who sent e-mails to WMCN.  We don’t think they have ever received so many e-mails about a program before.  We thank you for taking the time to let WMCN know how much our program means to our fans.  Thank you from all of us here at Inside Music Today!

We hope you will all tune in this week to enjoy the Flora Newberry song performed by Mike & Flora from Dr. Lou’s stage.  Also from the same evening we’re bringing you the relaxing devotional music sound of SiriOm Singh.

Then we cross the river to Center City and the Shamrock Pub for a Dr. Lou original.  On another evening we crossed the Burlington-Bristol Bridge to meet Howard Durann at Pasquale’s Bar & Restaurant and check out his Bucks County Open Mic Night.  That evening we recorded Mindless Hope and their unbelievable harmony guitar work and we have it right here for you on IMT!

On the March 9 show we’re presenting a song from our old friends The ‘Rents.  Then we travel back in time to an interview and performance from Crazy Raymond & the Watchdogs.  Don’t miss this fascinating interview from Raymond Tabano, who was a founding member of Aerosmith.  Listen and learn something about the music business.

This coming Wednesday evening, March 6, we will be back at Pasquale’s Bar & Restaurant, 9078 Mill Creek Rd., Levittown, PA with Howard Durann and his Bucks County Open Mic Night. Howard assures me he has a full night of entertainment set up.  So if you’re interested in getting out for an evening to enjoy some music and check out how we tape IMT, come on down!

We feel bad that we have made no forward progress on our first In Concert Road Show at the Shamrock Pub.  The week was spent negotiating with the TV station about the problem with the show not airing.  We will be back on track this week and have a finalized lineup and date by next week.

Again, a big thank you to all for your e-mails to WMCN.  We really appreciate the support given by all our artists, sponsors and fans.

Enjoy the weekend!

Inside Music Today February 16 Show

Great show this week along with new IMT opportunities!  Ian O’Grady has had to wait the longest of everyone from the 5-artist night at Dr. Lou’s Place, but his week has finally arrived.  Thank you for your patience.  Ian will also be performing another original on our very first In Concert Road Show.  We have secured the Shamrock Pub in Center City Philly as our venue for our very first show.  The remaining line-up and date will be announced after they are all locked in.

Speaking of the Shamrock Pub, this week’s show features Dr. Lou performing one of his originals at that venue.  We also have a second song from Cory Walters and If All Else Fails.  We recorded so much music that night at Dr. Lou’s!  Filling out the show, we have archival footage featuring George Spicer and Dream Catcher.  Another fantastic night of music from the IMT early years.

Watch this show NOW on YouTube!

The February 23rd show is quite a mixture of music.  Definitely something for everyone!  On Sunday we headed over to Dr. Lou’s Place to enjoy the open mic night with Mike & Flora.  They were happy to perform some original tunes written by Flora and we are featuring one of those songs on this show.  Then unexpectedly their friend, SiriOm Singh, just happened to drop in on their open mic.  He entertained us with one of his world music originals that we just had to record.

We’ve been crossing the river a lot lately.  From a Sunday when Dr. Lou and friends performed at the Shamrock Pub, we have another Dr. Lou song.  Then just this past Wednesday, we crossed the Bristol Bridge and visited Pasquale’s Sports Bar.  We were supposed to record Angel Casiano, but he had laryngitis.  Angel, we hope you feel better!  So we hung out and met Howard Durann who had brought his Bucks County Open Mic to Pasquale’s.  We met many IMT fans and several artists that have been featured on the show.  Then we enjoyed quite an evening of entertainment.  Since we were prepared to record, some of the artists have been captured on our video.  The band that will be featured on this show is Mindless Hope.  Unbelievable harmony guitar work.  We are so happy to showcase them to our IMT fans.

As I’ve been saying since the new year, Inside Music Today is on the path to offer many new opportunities to our artists.  Our new In Concert Road Show and the Bucks County Open Mic are just two possibilities of which artists can be a part.  We will have more info about them both in upcoming blasts.
