The Doors at the Bowl: Mick, LSD and a Moth

To play the Hollywood Bowl. For any musician, that has to be a career highlight. The Doors performed in that revered venue in 1968, and Ray Manzarek, in his interview for Qello Concerts, articulated the import of such an occasion.

The Dead at the End of ‘So Many Roads’

It’s not a sexy, round-number anniversary, but I bet Deadheads know that July 9 was the date of the last Grateful Dead concert with Jerry Garcia. That was in 1995, at Soldier Field in Chicago. With the surviving Dead having celebrated the 50th anniversary with a farewell tour—and then a return of most of them, as Dead & Company—they continue to be in the news.

Hank Williams, Tom Hiddleston & Me

This week in rock history, Hank Williams made his debut on the live radio show, Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. That was on June 11, 1949, and it says somewhere that he got an unprecedented six encore calls from the audience at the Ryman Auditorium. Must’ve thrown the radio show clear off its schedule.

Happy Birthday Bob Dylan!

It’s a big week for rock star birthdays. Bob Dylan on the 24th (making him 75), Stevie Nicks on the 26th (she’s, cough, cough), and John Fogerty on the 28th (he was born in ’45).

The Seasons | Stingray Pauseplay

The Seasons formed in Beauport, Quebec in the winter of 2011. The Chiasson brothers Hubert & Julien (vocals & guitars) had a desire to share the collection of hooks and melodies turning in their minds with the world, and so, Julien called up Rémi (drums & percussion) who brought along Sam (bass) and the band was formed.  The chemistry was instantaneous. After a few weeks in their parents' basement, a fully grown batch of original songs was brewed and they realized immediately that they were part of something bigger than themselves.

Serena Ryder dazzles. Serena Ryder is pure gold. The singer-songwriter who grew up outside Peterborough always brings her A-game and not only shows her star power as a vocalist and bandleader but her down-to-earth acoustic skills.

Guylaine Tanguay | Entrevue et performances

L’équipe de Stingray a littéralement été charmée par cette chanteuse vraie, au grand cœur. Son succès actuel est pleinement mérité. Durant notre entretien, elle nous a parlé avec affection de son album hommage à Elvis Presley, de sa vision de la spiritualité, de fibromyalgie dont elle souffre, de son livre « La ligne droite » qui paraîtra cet automne et de ses coups de cœur musicaux du moment.  Bref, elle a pris le temps de nous communiquer les rêves, les passions qui l’habitent qui par ricochet nous ont grandement inspirés.

Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul | Tribute

Let’s head back to the sixties. It’s a sunny Sunday morning in Detroit, Michigan, near the Canadian border. To be precise, we are at New Bethel Baptist Church on Linwood Street. It’s a warm day, and, as always, the church of Clarence LaVaughn Franklin is crowded with smiling faces in the mood for swingin’ hips accompanied by familiar Christian gospel, dancing, singing, and hand-flapping to get some “fresh” air. Of course, everyone is wearing their Sunday best.

AmericanaFest 2018 | Fresh Vibe

The name “Americana” is a relatively new one. The Americana Music Association describes it this way: Americana is contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw. While acoustic instruments are often present and vital, Americana also often uses a full electric band.”
