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 April 27 Show

It has been a very hectic week finalizing preparations for IMT‘s 1st acoustic In Concert Road Show.  We are also in the midst of preparations for the Croft Farm Rockfest ’13.  So it’s a bit crazy, tons of work and also fun.  But first a little info about this week’s show.

From our April 17th taping at Dave & Buster’s we are bringing you Lou Kramer with back-up by Firecracker Betty.  John Monzo has another original song for you this week that we taped on that evening. We also met rapper Diverse Character the same evening, and he is featured on this program.  Angel Casiano is part of the staff of Bucks County Open Mic Night and he gave us a copy of a concept video he had done recently and you will get to view it on this week’s show.

Next week we’re bringing you a second song from The Black Feathers from England.  Can’t wait to hear their beautiful harmonies once again.  Then we are back to the Dave & Buster’s taping with a song from Bob Pettiti and one from Great Blue Buddha.

I am asking all singers, musicians and friends to come out to the Shamrock Pub, 2nd & Reed St. in Center City, Philly, May 5, 5pm to 9pm.  Please come out and support our 1st acoustic In Concert Road Show.  If this is a success, that means more bands can be booked in more places.  IMT wants to show off all the talent that passes through the show.  We want to reach more audiences through more venues.  The audience seeing you on TV is one thing, but performing “live” is what it’s all about.  Please support this event and let’s keep IMT In Concert shows going!

Also, mark your calendars for June 8 ( June 9 raindate) for the Croft Farm Rockfest ’13.  We are so lucky to have friends in the right places that made it possible to acquire this venue.  This is a first for Cherry Hill to host an event like this.  We also want this to be successful, for the same reasons as above.  IMT is trying our best to open doors so talented artists have venues to show their craft.  Artists, please support other artists.  It will surely come back to you.

So please come out to our events.  Just remember, Bill always has really cool surprises at the end of the shows.  So come out and enjoy an evening of music.  If you need further info concerning the shows, go to our website below or e-mail us at the address below.  I’m happy to answer any questions.

Enjoy the weekend.  It should be beautiful! Tune in tonight at MIDNIGHT for our show, only on WMCN! As always, thanks go to our generous sponsors!

Inside Music Today April 13 Show

This week’s TV show features a band from England, The Black Feathers.  I am so grateful we were invited by Dr. Lou to record Ray & Sian at Dr. Lou’s Place on Easter Sunday.  They are a wonderfully talented duo and great people.  You won’t want to miss this show and their incredible harmony.  Plus in the interview, you’ll love the British accents!

We also have a message song from our producer Bill with Artisan, warning to not drink & drive.  Then we will get you in the mood for our upcoming anniversary concert with a new song from No Commitment.  Yes, Bill has decided to turn the concert with 4 young bands into our 19th Anniversary Concert!  And the date is June 8, exactly 19 years to the day of the first Inside Music Today broadcast!  With the assistance of Mark Oberstaedt, one of the dads of the No Commitment band, we have secured Croft Farm in Cherry Hill, NJ for the venue.  Thank you Mark for all your help.  This would not be a reality without you!

Our April 20th show has performances by Count Josephine BandJohn CantamessaDave Weber with Donna DelanyBox of Roxx and Dr. Lou & the Privileged Few.

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.
