Inside Music Today April 6 Show and Open Mic Update

Info about the Acoustic Road Show at the Shamock Pub and upcoming concerts in June will have to wait until next week.

But we do have a great show this week featuring Dr. Lou, Nicki Sbaffoni, Mike Rocket and Artisan.

Next week’s performances include a duo we were able to tape from Dr. Lou’s stage on Easter Sunday, The Black Feathers.  Ray and Sian are from England and we were so happy to meet them and capture their fantastic harmonies for Inside Music Today.  We’ve also included an interview with questions for Ray and Sian from Bill and Dr. Lou.

The other band on next week’s show is No Commitment, taped just last night at Dr. Lou’s Place.  We had a great time and wish them Good Luck at the JAM Awards.  It is really wonderful to watch these young artists as they grow and mature within the music business.  They will be a part of one of the concerts we are planning for June.  But there will be more info on that next week.

One thing that has become definite is our next Bucks County Open Mic Night date and location.  Wednesday, April 17th is the date and this will be our first TV taping at Dave & Buster’s, 1995 Franklin Mills Circle, Philadelphia.  Come on out and enjoy the great entertainment for the TV taping and join in for the open mic if you’re there early enough to sign up.  E-mail us if you need further info.

Thank you to everyone who watches and participates in Inside Music Today.  This is a growing musical family and it’s great to see everyone supporting and helping each other in so many ways. Thanks also to our sponsors who keep original local music on the air!

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 December 29 Show

Hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas season!

On this week’s show, The Union has returned performing a Mike Riley song.  Mike owns Riley General Contracting (one of our sponsors) and has been helping support IMT for awhile now.  Thank you Mike for everything you do for us and the show!  Not only are you a gifted musician & songwriter, but a gifted carpentry artisan as well!

We also have a new song from Volt who we met at Hollystock this past summer.  We’ve had many requests for their return.  So here they are from a show taped just a week or so ago from our sponsor Dr. Lou’s Place.

Continuing this 2nd show from our Christmas trilogy, we’re featuring a Christmas song by Cathy Gulden from Delaware.  Thank you Rob for finding her for us!  And as a special Christmas treat, Blue Heather teams up with Dr. Lou & the Privileged Few for a rockin’ Christmas tune.

Next week we’ll bring you new songs from Nicki Sbaffoni and Kenn Kweder.  Then we’ll wrap up the Christmas trilogy with a couple of songs featuring Louise Mandrell.  Louise is the middle of the three Mandrell Sisters.  We were requested to tape the Rowan University Winter Concert, at which Louise was the special guest.  She is a wonderful entertainer and we are so very happy we were given permission to share part of her evening’s performance with you all.  Thank you Dr. Pastin, Rowan University and all the musicians and singers that made the concert such a wonderful experience that evening.

Well, enjoy the shows we’ve worked so hard to bring to you. And we couldn’t do it without the support of our wonderful sponsors–so make sure you thank them for keeping original music on TV in the Delaware Valley!

All of us at IMT wish everyone a wonderful, prosperous & Happy New Year!

December 22 Show: Inside Music Today

This week’s show reflects the Christmas season with performances by The Pine Barons Chorus and Bill’s past singing group, Been There Done That.

Blue Heather brings the Latin Christmas celebration to us performing with the trio Tieno, bringing together family & friends.  Artisan has a song with a reminder to be careful not to drink & drive this holiday season.  Dr. Lou & the Privileged Few perform at The Legendary Dobbs and we catch the interview with them from that evening.

If you missed the show or just want to see it again, check it out on YouTube!

Next week we have a song written by Mike Riley and performed by The Union on Dr. Lou‘s stage. The band Volt, who we recorded back in July at Hollystock, came out to Dr. Lou’s just last night.  One of the two songs recorded will be on this show.  Bill has been looking forward to more music from them since he edited their performance back in August.  Thanks guys for coming to Dr. Lou‘s and being a part of one of our holiday shows!

And as a special holiday treat, Blue Heather and Dr. Lou and The Privileged Few perform together.  This happy Christmas song is quite fun and entertaining!

Our December 15 show featured the talents of Mike Rocket and Nicki Sbaffoni from The Legendary Dobbs stage.  We have a song written by Sharis performed by The Union.  From that same evening of “Thanks” from Dr. Lou’s stage we have newcomer Frank Porter and the acapella talents of Blue Heather singing for our military at this time of the year when they all wish they could be here.  Thank you to all who serve to keep us safe.

It has been a wonderful year bringing all these artists and their original music to all of you.  I look back on this year and realize IMT has presented about 260 new original songs to our viewers.  We wish to thank each and every artist that has been a part of Inside Music Today.  We appreciate your performances and being a part of our IMT family.  We are so blessed to live in an area with such a multitude of talented musicians, singers and songwriters.

Artists please remember, IMT is planning many new experiences for the New Year.

Keep in touch if you would like to be included in all the new and exciting projects ahead.  We’re ready for a fun and prosperous New Year!

We wish everyone, artists and fans alike, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year!  And I don’t want to forget our sponsors!  Thank you for keeping us on the air so all can enjoy our wonderful performers!

And I must not forget our fantastic crew!  We cannot put out this show without your talents!  Thank you Rob, Barb & Ro. Bill and I depend on you all much more than you realize.  Thank you for always being there for us.  And welcome to our new intern Mackenzie!  You’ve only been with us a short time, but you fit with us all so perfectly.  Hope you return on spring break or for the summer!

Thanks for all who watch IMT.  We try our best to bring you new original music each week and are looking forward to this new exciting year ahead.

Here’s to many new and wonderful experiences in 2013!
