Nickels & Dimes-Blues Rock From Norway

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Oslo, Norway--October 23, 2006-- Steffen Nicolaisen (guitar &vocals), Arild Steinsrud (bass), and Nils H. Maehlum (drums) are Nickels & Dimes. The band formed in 1987 and in 2003, the original lineup reformed as Nickels & Dimes, then wrote and recorded their most recent and fourth album Midnight Overdrive.

This trio is a devout Hendrix worshipper and their music is a direct reflection of the love and respect they have for the late great guitar hero.

Right at the outset of the opening track “ 3 2 Get Ready” you hear a scream and instantly know you will be in for a ride. Nickels & Dimes will rock your soul with rousing tracks and “Trampoline” is one of their best. It is a personal tribute to the masters of the past. The track fires up three minutes and twenty-seven seconds of pure rockin’ blues-rock energy. This band has a good sense of humor too-“Rubber Man,” has a crazy acoustic slide backed with a locomotive rhythm section that never misses a step and lyrics that will surely bring a smile to your face. This is the blues, straight up with nothing else to wash it down.

Blues music is universal and once you hear Nickels & Dimes you will think that the boys came straight from the Texas heartland. This is proof positive that the power of the blues has a far-reaching influence. Nickels & Dimes is actively touring in support of Midnight Overdrive and you can visit their website for recent concert pictures, upcoming live dates, downloads, and order the CD from directly from their site or from CD Baby.

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…

New Biography on The Cars Singer/Bassist Benjamin Orr by Vermont Writer Joe Milliken to be Published November 2018!

Bellows Falls, VT – Veteran music journalist Joe Milliken recently announced a publishing deal with the Lanham, Maryland-based publisher Rowman & Littlefield Publishers to produce his first book, a biography about the late Benjamin Orr. Orr was the co-founder, co-lead singer, and bassist for the platinum-selling rock band The Cars. Titled Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars, a release date is set for November 15, 2018.

Often considered the band’s heartthrob, Orr possessed an incredible voice, diverse musical talent and rare stage presence, all balanced by a magnetic, yet enigmatic personality, striking good looks, and a relentless determination to reach rock stardom. Born Benjamin Orzechowski (aka “Benny Eleven Letters”) and raised in the Cleveland suburb of Parma Heights, Orr was, prior to becoming a world-famous rock star with The Cars, a “teen star” as a house band musician for the nationally syndicated television show Upbeat.

A few years later Ben met his musical partner and …
