Live Gig Review - JUPE - The Garage

Where: The Garage, Highbury
When: 01/07/2015

Irish pop-rockers JUPE were on top form to delight a full house at The Garage on Wednesday night with new hits from their upcoming album.
It was the boy’s first gig in London and they definitely made their mark. The band started off early with their new breakthrough single ‘Rocket’ which is a totally addictive hit and gets stuck in your head for the rest of the evening.
The band were definitely comftbable on stage and in their element performing for the first time at the famous Garage venue in Islington. With similarities to The Fray and The Script, lead singer Tim Night’s vocals and stage presence definitely stand out as a name to listen out for in next few months as the band head over to the UK to promote their music.
It’s not often that you go to see a band for the first time and come home knowing all the words to the songs. This is the secret to this band, the catchy lyrics and memorable choruses mixed together with their Irish charm allow all the tracks to flow perfectly into each other.
The 5 piece performed other songs including; Secret, Green Light and Can’t Get Enough. My personal favourite song was the penultimate one of the evening “Across the World”. It is a real audience song, especially the chorus which had everyone’s arms in the air and dancing along. The band had won over everyone by the final song and was most definitely one of the best gigs I have seen in while from a new band that were performing in London for the first time.

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…

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

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…
