SARATOGA SPRINGS, NEW YORK - Saratoga Springs, New York is probably not the first place one associates with heavy metal music, with its vast history of horse racing and luxury homes, the area is more known for its upper class, high brow visitors and activities. True, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) has hosted musical acts from all genres since its opening in 1966. This writer as seen everyone from Sting to Lynyrd Skynyrd at the venue and has rarely been disappointed.
MONTPELIER, VERMONT - Vermont's resident rhythm-and-bluesman guitarist, Dave Keller, is a busy man these days, with his latest CD on the cusp of being released and a slew of summer shows throughout New England, as well as a string of CD "Release Party" dates slated throughout September. Heck, there's even a newly-designed t-shirt ready to offer the fans. (pictured) When Standing Room Only last checked in with Dave, he had just launched his Kickstarter campaign as to help raise funds for his forthcoming new CD release... the follow up to his critically acclaimed Soul Changes CD released in 2014.
PUTNEY, VERMONT - Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present Prince Edward Island-based, acoustic, folk/fusion trio Ten Strings and a Goat Skin, plus Boston-based singer/songwriter Hayley Reardon, at Next Stage on Friday, August 5 at 7:30 p.m. Ten Strings and a Goat Skin transform tradition with vigor, curiosity and sparks of goofy humor, weaving old-school Franco-Canadian, Breton, Irish and Scottish tunes with wickedly current grooves and clever quirks.
If ever there was a band that woulda'-coulda'-shoulda' been big in the United States, Australian rockers Angel City certainly had the potential to be and laid it on the line... but sometimes, no matter how much talent and good song writing ability - not to mention a defining sound of their own - falling through the cracks of a short-lived popularity is the always-present pitfall, of which most of the time is no fault of the band. The business of music can certainly get the best of any musician.
