Interview: The Silent Comedy talk whiskey revival, Dave Mathews, Incubus and hot sauce

I went to see ZZ Ward in Tampa at The Ritz a couple of weeks ago. I was very excited to see her perform in person and was curious about the opening band The Silent Comedy that was doing this leg of the tour with her. Can I just say WOW?  They were utterly, holy amazing!  Their energy tangibly charged up the room by the first song. People were smiling and clapping and looking at each other incredulously by the 3rd song. Everyone was thinking: Why aren’t these guys totally famous?

By the last song the audience felt connected like old comrade drinking buddies, raising our cups to God and the fleetingness of life and the joy of feeling music that is honest and unapologetic.

I was first in line at the merch table after the show and immediately asked the guys for an interview (after I bought a t-shirt and had them all sign my CD). Jeremiah responded enthusiastically  and gave me their card. The awesome interview with Joshua follows.

Interview with Brooklyn’s French Horn Rebellion-Creative Brothers pioneer new genre ‘Next Jack Swing’

I had the pleasure of meeting the rambunctiously fun and light hearted brother duo French Horn Rebellion when my band (Waking Giants) was playing the Harvey Milk Festival in Sarasota,  Fl. I was also one of the the stage managers for the event so I got a chance to hang out with them the night before at a private meet and greet party and back stage all day at the festival.

This time I got to spend with the guys planted the seed for the interview below, as I found them both to be very open and engaged with everyone they met, despite their A-list STAR power.

BREAKING NEWS: FHR just dropped their hot new release “Dancing Out (Featuring Jody Watley & Young Empires).



French Horn Rebellion (www.frenchhornrebellion.com) are Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, two brothers born and bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. In 2007, younger brother Robert was playing French horn in the Chicago Civic Orchestra, and decided to make hot beats instead. After telling the conductor Continue reading “Interview with Brooklyn’s French Horn Rebellion-Creative Brothers pioneer new genre ‘Next Jack Swing’” »

HuDost review and new video skillz!

I was blessed to attend and film HuDost’s  concert at Rising Tide International on April 20, 2013 (www.HuDost.com). I really wanted to capture some video to share here with everyone (see below), as reading a review just isn’t the same as catching a glimpse of the live experience through video. I also got to learn new video editing skills (yay!) and I am really excited to be pushing my creativity in new directions! The possibilites are endless and very exciting!

HuDost was joined on stage by vocalist Stephanie Heidemann (www.stephanieheidemann.com) and Julian Douglas (http://juliandouglas.com) on percussion. I was able to get a good shot of each of them for this montage below. Clockwise below: Moksha Sommer, Jemal Wade Hines, Stephanie Heidemann and Julian Douglas.

i kill time- creating boundaries of space & time

This article  at Forbes.com  nails it on the head- “10 reasons why we struggle w/ creativity”. I especially love #9: It’s easier to get numb!

This article is very worth the TIME and so is the John Cleese video on creativity they add at the end (I’ll add it too)…

What John  Cleese says about creativity :

We get our ideas from our unconscious mind. So how can we create a mood that enables creativity to thrive?



1. Create boundaries of space to avoid interruption.

2. Create boundaries of time: give a start and stop time to create this oasis of space.

Now watch the video below and goobe on John Cleese like I did. Full length video is at the end down there.

Hudost Interview- 4th Way Folk

My friends of the band Hudost asked me to do an interview with them about their current album release (4th Way Folk) and  “In Utero” tour.

I had interviewed them in 2010 for Sarasota Music Scene (read here) and relished the chance to submerse myself into their new creative project. Since they are the reason and inspiration to start this blog (read here), I am excited beyond words to give you a glimpse into their amazing lives. Click on the album cover below to buy & listen to the music on Band Camp while you read the interview.

They will be stopping here in Sarasota at Rising Tide International- April 20Get tickets and info here.

I kill tv-the beginning March 16, 2013

It all began with being inspired by my friends new album. They are in a band named Hudost.  I was asked to do an interview/review for their new album “Fourth Way Folk” and little did I know it would inspire a creative revolution in my mind. See their interview here.


After listening to the album through several times this Saturday morning, I got up and took a shower. I was buzzing with creativity and inspiration and really wanted to have more time to create something like this for myself. And then I wondered…were DOES my time go? I should be able to accomplish the many creative things I want to do.

The answer came swiftly and like A BIG DUH floating in the sky, I knew what I had to do. I had to kill my t.v. and take my time back.


I must have sounded crazy, but I shouted down stairs to my spouse, Continue reading “I kill tv-the beginning March 16, 2013” »
