Music News: Black Note Graffiti Perform At 2015 SXSW

Ann Arbor, MI-March 9, 2015-Michigan’s own hard rock band Black Note Graffiti will perform two shows right in the middle of 2015 SXSW at the RedGorilla Music Festival in Austin TX. The shows will be on Thursday March 19th 6pm at The Blind Pig and March 20th 6pm at the Dizzy Rooster  in Austin, TX. They will be performing songs from their highly anticipated upcoming sophomore release Volume II.

Black Note Graffiti played festivals last year at the Ann Arbor Summerfest and headlined at the Annual Hash Bash event in their hometown of Ann Arbor. The band has found success by charting on CMJ and landing media deals to air on ESPN, NASCAR, MTV, and DISCOVERY.

The multi-talented leader of the band Kris Keller will also be in the audience representing
Noteborn Music Company and will be scouting for new bands at the festival to sign and license material to TV and Movies. There is a lot of excitement for the band right now and to be able to help other indie bands is a driving force behind what they stand for and represent.

Black Note Graffiti is anxious to give their fans great live performances on one of the world’s biggest stages for indie music. The electricity and energy of introducing some of the new material that will be on the upcoming release is already creating a buzz and there could not be a better showcase to do that in than SXSW.

Keller and the band look forward to seeing some familiar faces, meeting some new ones and creating some more fans along the way. If Volume II picks up where Volume II left off it then it is a guaranteed rollercoaster ride of heavy and eclectic sounds.

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 …
