Mighty Surf Lords: www.myspace.com/themightysurflords – The guitar and bass player from the Mighty Surf Lords founded the Loving Hearts Club in Reno, NV and routinely organize meals for the homeless. The band and I felt it would be a tremendously good idea to do this on the East Coast and we expect both shows, one in New Haven and the second in Worcester, to be quite successful. Here is a recent article about the band and The Loving Hearts Club:

SmokeStack and the Foothill Fury

invades Connecticut on April 19th at Cafe Nine (http://www.cafenine.com/) 250 State Street New Haven, CT.

SmokeStack is the real deal, a vagabond minstrel, a one-man band, traveling the country with his plain and simple kick yer teeth in, self-styled punk-country-blues. He summons in equal parts the spirits of Son House and Joe Strummer, belting his raspy baritone over a furious slide guitar and a snare/bass drum rhythm section that he plays with his feet. A true DIY, he has crossed the 225,000 miles in almost 4 years mark….so pucker up and get a taste.

Check out this video from the Dive Bar in Worcester and then get yourself to New Haven for a real dose of authentic punk blues.

Blue Suede News says ” Here’s my favorite new CD for this issue! There have been several others I liked a lot, but having seen both Jeff and his wife Betsy-Dawn Williams at the Rockabilly Ball last year primed me for this. Potter’s an all-around musician, playing piano, drums, organ and some lead guitar on his new CD, as well as writing and singing all 15 songs. “

Save Coney Island

Author: admin
Hi All,
For more years than many of us have been on this earth the Coney Island Boardwalk has existed, thrived, died and been reborn again. Well, the corporate machine in NYC is trying to kill it one last time by denying the renewal of nine leases of Mom n’ Pop stores, restaurants and venues on Coney’s boardwalk. Among these are Ruby’s, Cha Cha’s, Paul’s Daughter, Grill House, Gyro Corner, Shoot the Freak, Beer Island, Pio Pio Riko and Coney Island Souvenir Shop.

Many of you have played with your bands at on the boardwalk, at Cha’s Cha’s or Ruby’s and some just played in amusement park. Now it’s time to stand together and save the her history for our children and the child inside all of us who longs for fun in the sun on the Coney Island boardwalk. If we don’t stop this steam roller… pretty soon this will all be just be a memory.

The Crustaceans – “Northeast Connecticut’s BEST Fathers and Kids Surf-Rock Instrumental Combo”
are playing The Babbs at Lake Congamond on Sunday Sept. 12th

Still looking for bands to benefit …
The committee overseeing the project would like to continue the music series through October. If you would care to donate your band and your time you will be compensated in beverages and the un-dieing gratitude of an all volunteer staff. The project organizers have begun to get sponsorship from local businesses and hope to be able to pay bands in the future, but for now this is an all volunteer project. If you would like to be part of saving history please contact me and let me know of your availability for a Sunday afternoon gig by the water.
