Oakland, CA – Brooklyn-born Reggae pioneer Rocker-T announces the release of his newest album, The Return of the Tru Ganjaman, featuring Reggae Legends Mykal Rose (Black Uhuru), Prezident Brown and UK Reggae Superstar Gappy Ranks. The new album showcases some great original songs, along with some inspired remixes of some older songs from some well-known producers.

This full-length album comes on the heels of Rocker-T releasing Tru Ganjaman: The Remixes on April 20th, 2016, which has been receiving rave reviews and international airplay since its release. Throughout his 30-year career, Rocker-T has always been on the cutting edge of the worldwide movement to decriminalize cannabis, personified in his groundbreaking, award-winning 1996 anthem Tru Ganjaman. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the song’s release, Luvinnit Productions commissioned and released Tru Ganjaman: The Remixes, featuring 23 remixes of this iconic track from a variety of well-known producers.

His extensive catalog includes the album Give Thanks on Electra Records with his band Skadanks, 7 full-length albums including Nicer By the Hour, If Yu Luv, Show Ya Luv, More Luv, Hold On Strong, Alphabet City, and a two-volume release titled Hurban Warrior Of Peace: Part Roots featuring Gappy Ranks, Rankin’ Joe and Terry Ganzie, and Hurban Warrior Of Peace: Part Konkrete featuring KRS1, Cutty Ranks and Marlon Asher. He has also released dozens of singles and a handful of EPs, including the Luv is the Foundation EP featuring Joan Baez.

The Return of the Tru Ganjaman features collaborations with many well-known and developing artists, and was created at Luvinnit Productions Studios in Oakland, California. The album is mainly produced by Luvinnit Productions, Royal Order Music and Dynasty Records.

Rocker-T has maintained his youthful exuberance, energy, and sound quality both onstage and off throughout his 30-year career with a spiritual and holistic lifestyle, and a grand love of life and music. He has been a huge influence on every music scene he has been involved in, leading the way for such artists as Matisyahu, Alborosie, Josh Heinrichs, Skillinjah and groups like Soja and Fortunate Youth, from a time when American born artists were not performing Hip Hop, Roots or Dancehall in a West Indian Patois. A man whose life seems to have been created for music, Rocker-T is a pulsating force with much energy and love to share with the world.

Rocker-T will perform at festivals and shows throughout 2016 in North America and Europe to promote the album’s release. Check out Rocker-T’s social media sites for updated show information.

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…
