Inside Music Today November 10 Show

We are bringing you another show with artists that performed for Paul Kurrey’s benefit at The Legendary Dobbs, Philly.  Nytrous came out that evening and are on this show along with Jack McTamney and Dr. Lou’s Privileged Few.

Mike Rocket came down from New York to be a part of this historic evening.  Enjoy this young artist’s intriguing lyrics and great guitar work.  In an interview with Bill & Dr. Lou, Mike reveals much information about being a traveling musician.  I’m sure IMT will be catching more gigs in the future with Mike Rocket! See this show on YouTube!

Next week we will be featuring Michael Tearson, host for the evening’s activities and iconic DJ from the early days of underground FM radio.  What a pleasure to meet the man that we listened to night after night in the days of our youth and throughout the years.  We had a wonderful time that evening, doing interviews and hanging out in Dobbs’ green room.  Michael, thanks for being a part of Inside Music Today ! Enjoy music and reminiscing by watching this show on YouTube!

Thank you to everyone who watches IMT–and, as always, thank you to our wonderful sponsors!  Please, if you are able, donate to Paul’s benefit fund.  This week we will have more info on the benefit link.  Just click on the link after Monday and we should have the further info needed to donate.

Enjoy the weekend.  Heard it will be so nice, after all this so bad weather.

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!

Next week we’ll show you one of the first tapings we did with Lisa Bouchelle in her early days, when she was with October Baby.  This definitely shows the ROCK side of Lisa!  We have Dave Weber in the only footage we have with him in a band.  A different side of Dave, performing with The Good Medicine Band.  Wendy Betz is returning with another song from the taping at The Bus Stop, Blue Heather is back and then we are down the shore with Mighty Parrot.

So in addition to this fabulous list of entertainers, Blue Heather will be featured singing the song they recorded with SalSoul Orchestra years back.  Thank you to Billy & The Essentials, Danny & The Juniors,  The Dreamlovers, The Tymes, The Orlons and The Bluenotes for being a part of IMT and the inspiration to those who followed.

Inside Music Today September 8 Show

It may still feel like summer, but autumn events are starting to come together.  Beginning with IMT‘s new fall format and continuing with preparations for the October 15th fundraiser for Paul Kurrey, it’s just an exciting feeling of making things happen.

First our September 8 show will continue the Bill & Dr. Lou interview we premiered last week, with more info about the Philly & Delaware Valley music scene.  Then all the acts this week are taped at different venues, with the Trump Boyz from the Hawk Island Marina in Delanco, NJ. and Dr. Lou from Dr. Lou’s Place.  The Parachuting Apostles are coming to us from The World Cafe and Danny & the Juniors from The Coastline.  Definitely an array of talent from interesting venues.

Watch this episode now on YouTube!

On to the September 15 show.  The interview segment with Bill & Dr. Lou has more updates and insights on the Delaware Valley music scene.  We have 2nd songs from Glenn Basham, John Cantamessa & The Main Street Band, Dave Weber with Donna Delany and Dr. Lou.

I am happy to report we have the line-up for the upcoming fundraiser.  Below are the artists that have graciously volunteered their time to make this a special evening for Paul.  The official name of the event is:

The Philadelphia Music Scene ROCKS for Paul Kurrey       

Monday, October 15     4:00pm to 1:00am
Dobb’s,  South Street,  Philadelphia

We’ll be listing all the featured bands and linking to bands’ websites soon, so watch this post for more info about this concert–and don’t forget to save the date to see it LIVE!

As you can see, this will be quite a night of entertainment!  And as I said last week,  IMT will be there taping for future shows.  So I’m sure everyone will want to be a part of this historic evening!

Come on out, have a good time while supporting our friend and fellow musician in his time of need.

I want to thank everyone who watches and supports our show and our sponsors.  We so appreciate all everyone does for us so we can continue to spotlight the talent of our fellow area musicians and singers.

Inside Music Today September 1 Show

Hard to believe it is here so quickly, but this week’s show is the first of the new fall season.  In this first show, we are introducing a new segment to the program.  Each week we will try to offer a bit of information concerning the business side of the music industry in and around the Philly music scene.

In this premiere segment, Bill & Dr. Lou discuss their experience while attending a meeting of the Philadelphia Recording Community (PRC).  That interview will be continued on the September 8 show.

This week we’re featuring songs taped 2 weeks ago at Dr. Lou’s from Glenn Basham and RT Funk Band.  That was a fun night!  Then from a taping at Hebe Music a few days later,  John Cantamessa brought along The Main Street Band and what a great performance!  The same night we enjoyed Dave Weber with Donna Delany.  They sound fantastic together!  A thoroughly entertaining evening!

Watch our September 1 show on YouTube!

Next week, along with our new interview segment, each act is coming to us from a different venue.  On a beautiful August evening we caught The Trump Boyz at Hawk Island Marina in Delanco, NJ.  Then on to Dr. Lou’s Place and a new song from Dr. Lou.  In their premiere appearance on IMT, The Parachuting Apostles are performing at The World Cafe.  And how wonderful to have as our special guests this week, Danny & the Juniors!  We were lucky to catch them at a fundraiser a few years ago at The Coastline.  Thank you to Joe Terry for permission to air their performance from that evening, sounding fantastic as always!

Speaking of fundraisers, don’t forget the special fundraiser IMT will be covering on October 15.  This event is for Paul Kurrey, to support him in his battle with throat cancer.  We want to help him beat this “worst of all cancers that could affect a singer.” Not only is he ill, but this form of cancer also threatens his livelihood.  Save the date, October 15, and come on out to the Legendary Dobbs, South Street, Philly, for an unprecedented 4PM opening.  Stay until 6:30 for Happy Hour and acoustic performances.  After that, even I don’t know as yet who is in the line-up.  But I’m sure they’ll be lots of surprises during this very special evening for a very special artist.  We will definitely keep you informed as we find out more each week!

I think this is all the IMT news to date.  Don’t forget to watch us on WMCN, and tell a friend!  And if you like our show, why not thank our sponsors by supporting their businesses?  Click here to see our full list of sponsors who play a huge role in keeping local original music on TV!

Have a great Labor Day weekend and enjoy this unofficial end of summer!
