Boston Based Bird Mancini Release New CD Funny Day

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Boston, MA-May 30, 2007- Boston's accordion/guitar rock duo Bird Mancini, will release their third and newest CD, Funny Day on Second Story Records June 1st. Celebration of the release starts with a kick-off CD Release Party at Perks Coffeehouse in Norwood, MA from 8-10pm.

Bird Mancini's eclectic psychedelic Funny Day features a rock pop style that takes a different direction from previous releases. Ruby and Billy sing all the lush vocal arrangements with musical support from members of Bentmen, The Sterns, Grinning Lizards, Bangalore, Pastiche, and The Peacheaters. Well known Boston artist Jane Smaldone provides the surreal cover art for the album.

Bird Mancini has made their living for years playing in Northeast clubs, colleges, resorts, music halls and festivals. They have opened for the likes of David Crosby, Gregg Allman, Jonathan Edwards, James Montgomery, Mighty Sam McClain, Pousette-Dart Band and many others. All of this was on their resume prior to their first release in 1996. Ruby Bird and Billy Carl Mancini's career together spans nearly two decades. Their original recordings have garnered critical acclaim, an ASCAP/Boston Music Award nomination, and fans from all over the world. Twice, in 2002 and 2004, New England’s Metronome Magazine named Bird Mancini among the Top 10 Year’s Best. Their music is its own reward to those lucky enough to find it in an Irish pub in Boston, a breezy summer concert, on the Internet, or simply through word of mouth.

Ruby’s early exposure to music was Gospel choirs in country churches and Kansas City blues and swing while Billy Carl cut his guitar-playing teeth on high school rock and roll bands covering songs by 60's greats like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles and the Stones. Funny Day is a direct reflection of all those influences mixed together. The duo forms a highly spirited take on life and music. The two lead singers offer blues-tinged guitar, accordion, and harmonica with a variety of percussion, bells, and whistles—music that refuses to be narrowly defined. As AllMusic.com puts it, "Bird Mancini is likely to please a wide array of listeners."

If you appreciate fusions and variations on rock and roll, blues, pop, Latin jazz, country gospel and psychedelic world beat, you are likely to come away from a Bird Mancini recording or live performance feeling happy you found your way here.

British Post-Punk Veterans 1919 Return With A Brand New Masterpiece Of Darkly Melodic Goth Rock, FUTURECIDE!

Los Angeles, CA - Like the mythic phoenix rising from the ashes, British post-punk band 1919 have gone through Hell and back over the course of their harrowing career, but they keep returning stronger than ever! Founded in 1980, the band released its debut album Machine in 1983 and one EP a year later before calling it quits. However, the band reformed in 2014 to great acclaim, performing numerous tours and at festivals across Europe. Then, tragedy struck as the band’s founding guitarist Mark Tighe was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and succumbed to the disease in January 2017. Tighe insisted that the band should carry on without him, which they have done in finest form with their newest effort Futurecide. The album, which will be officially released on April 12 via Cleopatra Records, features brand new compositions and includes special guest performances by Tighe as well as former member Steve Madden, who also passed away this year. The first single, “Anxiety,” was released at the en…

Concert Review: Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY

Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY December 13, 2018 http://ghost-official.com


With winter upon us in the great Northeast, it was just another night. We never have a reason to stay in because of the weather, we just go. It so happened that it was a nice evening for a drive to a Ghost concert.We secured our tickets months ago and have been anticipating this night for months on end.
Last July I attended a “bucket list” concert, the great Iron Maiden was coming to Mansfield, MA. Opening for them was Ghost. This was a turn of a friendly card for the band, a great way to get worldwide exposure otherwise not afforded by a lesser band. They were already on the rise and the lead singer Papa Emeritus had a helluva a band (no pun intended there). At that time my prediction was that when the new year began Ghost would be headlining their own shows. So, then it happened, here we are tonight watching this incredible metal band headlining their own show, with no opener may I add.
For those of you unf…

Experience Hendrix Tour 2019 Concert Review

The Experience Hendrix Tour 2019 Concert The Palace Theater Albany, New York April 3, 2019 http://www.experiencehendrixtour.com/


The pictures I have provided were snapped by me with my phone to give you an idea of the backdrop to the music prior to the show. That screen changed with each song and it was very trippy psychedelic colors and images that mirrored the timeframe of Jimi in his prime. -Keith “MuzikMan” Hannaleck
The Electric Church arrived in Albany, NY last night with its all-star cast for the Experience Hendrix 2019 Tour.The music of Jimi Hendrix continues to thrive and be embraced by fans worldwide. This is a tour I have been wanting to catch for several years now and I finally made it, and so glad I did.
The best thing that could happen to this event is the involvement of Billy Cox. Anyone familiar with Jimi’s music knows that they were friends for a long time and Billy played bass on some of Jimi’s albums. Also, with Janie Hendrix involved it makes everything legit. Also havin…
