Halloween is upon us and so many things are happening that it feels like you would literally have to have ghost like abilities to get to all of them. We will be down in New Orleans again this year covering Voodoo Music and Arts Festival 2014 and heading to several of the late night shows. On our list of things to do, Fishbone’s late night set at The Joy Theater with special guests March Forth Marching Band, The Scorseses, DJ Quickie Mart, Eric McFadden and Nigel Hall on Halloween night is a must. These legendary ska rockers fit so well with the funky vibe of the city and with all the sit ins, there is no way that this won’t be mind blowing. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.thejoytheater.com/tickets/list.

For those of you unfamiliar with Fishbone, they are a ska, funk, soul influenced rock band that has been going strong for 35 years. Their first major tour was opening for The Beastie Boys, though they have come a long way since then. Despite several changes in lineup, Fishbone pushes forward in a constant movement, always seeming to gain momentum. In 2011, “Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone, a documentary highlighting the bands many achievements over the years was released, promptly winning several “Best Documentary “ awards all over the world. The film is ranked at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and was nominated for a Golden Tomato Award, an achievement that is almost nonexistent with any film.

Recently the band released a 5-track EP titled “Intrinsically Intertwined” and is once again on the road showcasing their insanely large catalog (17 albums). They will also be performing at Voodoo Music and Arts Festival on Halloween night at 6:30 pm in addition to the Joy Theater show later that night. You can still get your credentials for Voodoo at worshipthemusic.com. For all things Fishbone, check out www.fishbone.net.

The girl behind me and I were rocking out so hard that we accidentally head butted the sh*t out of each other. I started to apologize but she just laughed and gave me a hug. Thats when I knew it was real. After that, I played six different air instruments, began to sweat profusely, and heard the guy next to me proclaim that he ejaculated 3 times already”…and that was only half way through the show.

This is what I wrote about the last J. Roddy Walston and the Business concert I attended. Saying that Im excited to go back would be an understatement. J Roddy stole the festival, not just the show, at the Rhythm and Roots Festival in Bristol this year and I made myself a promise that if I ever had a chance to go see them again, that I would throw caution to the wind. I told myself that I would skip class, steal a car, or kidnap the president to see these guys. Low and behold, J Roddy is coming to Winston Salem on November 4th. Id walk if thats what it took.

You are probably wondering why Im so enthusiastic about these guys. Well, Im not going to just shower you with statistics about how J Roddy is winning all sorts of awards and is becoming ridiculously popular, because, thats not what theyre about. J Roddy is about the feeling you get when you watch. A J Roddy show is an hour that you can put life on pause. Better yet, just Tevo it, you can get back to that later.

“We’re all trained musicians. We went to school for jazz. We all made it a priority to be educated and then do our best to ignore that education as much as possible.”

 

Since 2011, Naughty Professor has been steadily bringing the funk to the masses. Already exploding, this year they have embarked on another lengthy tour that will land them at Voodoo Festival November 1, New Orleans on October 31- November 2, www.worshipthemusic.com, and at the Tipitinas’ after show on the same evening, before finishing their tour in Knoxville at Scruffy City Hall on December 6.

Their music exemplifies the fun and exciting danceable feeling that, like vitamins, you don’t know how much you need until you feel the pangs of its absence.

Coming more and more into their own has been quite the adventure. Recently, we caught up with drummer Sam Shahin to discuss their musical voice, award nominations and an inside view of the life of a touring band.

Without words, a space is left to be filled. In music as in life, when this presents itself thought and feeling are forced to the surface from deep inside. Naughty Professor is exemplary at forcing just that. The result is a raging dance party and smiles from ear to ear.

MusiciansConnect.Net, launched in July of 2014, is rapidly becoming the free musician classifieds service of choice for bands and musicians across the United States.


Featuring a clean and simple user interface, MusiciansConnect.net allows musicians to quickly set up a free profile with pictures, videos, audio clips and details about their talent, gear, style and inspiration.

“I started MusiciansConnect.net out of a growing frustration with the existing landscape in musician ‘hook-up’ websites. A lot of these sites simply felt dated and clunky. Some of them baited you with a ‘FREE’ membership, but then made you pay to actually contact a musician. I wanted to create a truly free service that was elegant and easy to use; a site that could help musicians connect in meaningful way. Judging from the response thus far, I think we’ve succeed!” comments Matt Casella, fellow musician and founder of MusiciansConnect.net. MusiciansConnect.net membership is 100% free and there is no payment required to contact musicians. Future plans include a premium membership that will offer enhanced features and opportunities for musicians to gain exposure through the site. Basic membership will continue to be a free and valuable service for musicians throughout the USA to find their musical soul mates.

Knoxville’s HypenKrünk plays silly and psyche to blaze a fan base around the world.

 

HypnenKrünk’s vocalist/rapper MC RealTree (né David Dalton) is hard to get a read on. His comments run between a modest fervor to diluted sarcasm, almost instantaneously. With one statement his point is concentrated and earnest, one second later he’s sly with ironic gesture. Or is he? One can’t be quite sure where his true intent lies, although it’s mixture makes a sort of twisted sense. Dalton admits this parlance grows from his own outlook.

“I think that’s just sort of my own approach to life, is a little silly,” said Dalton.

“Like anyone else, I engage in serious matters and have serious things happen, but I have a light hearted approach to some things, and that’s in order to keep myself getting real Emo.” he says with a slight cocked smile. “I don’t want to get real, real “Emo,” it’s not fun for anybody.”
