Re: “True Blues

It's not that the fans don't want new recordings, it's the radio DJ's that haven't given them much play with new discs. We fans would love a new recording once a month I'm sure!! However, as you said, Gillian, Justin and John, I believe, will continue to give us something new as time and effort permit. They are so busy touring right now and then Justin will be doing a solo tour across the Northeast that it's hard to find time to record. However, Justin has said he believes he has at least one more CD to publish that will give him a chance to express his own personal feelings - something he can't do under The Moody Blues name. And John has said that he is planning something really special for the 50th anniversary of DOFP in 2017! Plus next year will be the official 50th anniversary of this incarnation of The Moody Blues. So who knows what's ahead? I would just start saving my money for something spectacular from this legendary band with fans all over the world! SIWL, Arline

Re: “True Blues

It is a shame that they feel that new works by themselves is not what fans want but I suppose as long as Justin and John can release new material to know that there is still something new to give and express even after all these years. Maybe to celebrate 50 years in 2017 they could come up with something extra special that would be fantastic! PLEASE!! love Gillian

Re: “Crazy Christmas Carol

Years ago, when the girls were little, we acquired a box of children's records, and this record was in it. We sang it over and over, amazed that it even existed. I've hunted for it again, but it has disappeared in the turnover of the years. I'm so glad to find it again! Thank you!

Re: “So Long

I'm glad that the Bopeemian did a story on Matt. He was a really influential person. He definitely touched me.

I'm still going to say Bopeemian though, since that's my jam.

Matt, you are missed. Facebook went nuts for you.

Let's try to go nuts for each other with better timing in the future. Ok?

Thanks ladykiller Charlie! <3

Re: “Fatten Up

Second Line is a New Orleans Funk Band based in Sonoma County and we will be playing 3 Mardi Gras performances this weekend. We kickoff the weekend off on Saturday 14 February with a Voodoo Valentine Mardi Gras Ball at 8:00 pm at the Redwood Cafe. On Sunday February 15 Second Line is co-billing with the Dixie Giants at 755 After Dark (Aubergine) for a Saints and Sinners Mardi Gras Ball. On FAT TUESDAY 17 February Second Line is at The Parish Cafe in Downtown Healdsburg from 5 pm to 8 pm.. The Parish is a New Orleans restaurant and they will be serving the most authentic Mardi Gras cuisine west of the Mississippi.

www.SecondLineMusic.Com

Second Line is a collaboration of professional musicians that formed a project for the love of New Orleans music and culture. Their sound is defined by a combination of tight melodic grooves and highly syncopated New Orleans "second-line" rhythms under highly charged guitar and keyboard riffing. New Orleans funk is filled with raw, infectious, and downright dirty grooves. Smelly, greasy, fat (phat), and lowdown swamp funk thick as gumbo and nourishing as a barbecue shrimp po-boy.

The band features legendary musicians Val Fuentes (It's a Beautiful Day, New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Zins) and Roy Schmall (Big Brother and the Holding Company, Snooky Flowers, Bill Cutler, Smoke Inc, Stephanie Teel Band). The band is fronted by lead vocalist Andre Kelly (Rosetown Revue and Mojo Filter), Jim Stice on Guitar and Vocals (Phenix, and the Zins), and Matt Petruska on Bass (Travelin' Soul).

Re: “Take It Outside

Napa Porchfest is the best (and the first) in the West! Thank you for this sweet article. Permit me to correct a couple of things in it:
The idea got rolling not during a comparison of regional architecture, but after a Facebook post on Jan. 11, 2011, about the proposed Porchfest in Somerville, Mass. — one of many in the East inspired by the original Ithaca Porchfest. Facebook users can see it at http://on.fb.me/Wc9xXg.
I commented that Napa didn't have enough porches, but was quickly corrected by friend and architect Juliana Inman, a city council member (now vice-mayor) and boardmember of a local preservation trust, who pointed out the city's many historic neighborhoods where porches are everywhere.
Music-loving Thea Witsil of Wildcat Vintage Clothing was the other person who jumped in right away to say "Let's do it here!"
We were soon joined by other community members including Rachael Clark, Mark Lucas of the Napa Bicycle Coalition and innkeeper Jamie Cherry; I wish I could list everyone.
Napa Porchfest was the first I ever attended and I still think it's the best, but this year I finally got to enjoy the Somerville fest that also started in 2011 and inspired all of us in Napa.

Re: “Under the Radar

Just to clarify some more, Ben Stephens and Gabriel Smith created Live Musicians Co-Op eight years ago, as they saw there was a great need for it. Nathan Prowse came along much later.

Re: “Under the Radar

Jus to clarify a few misunderstandings, Ben Stephens was the founder of the live musicians co-op and nathan prowse got on board to expand the place.
