Rick Keene Music Scene – Ten Additional Episodes Of LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE Including Tommy Shaw of Styx

Daryl Hall is in the house!

AXS TV and Good Cop/Bad Cop Productions—the company behind Live From Daryl’s House—continue their strong partnership, bringing 10 additional episodes of the acclaimed music series to the Network’s lineup this fall. In addition to eight fan-favorite episodes, viewers will be able to enjoy two never-before-seen entries when the series returns to AXS TV with a new day and time, airing Thursday, October 1 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.


The series kicks off with a pair of star-studded sets broadcast for the first time worldwide, starting with Hall’s jam session with STYX front man Tommy Shaw on October 1, featuring intimate performances of STYX signatures “Blue Collar Man,” “Too Much Time On My Hands,” and “Renegade,” as well as Daryl Hall and John Oates’ hits “Delayed Reaction”, and “It’s A Laugh”. Then, on October 8, Hall joins Ty Taylor, lead singer of L.A.-based R&B quartet Vintage Trouble, for a night of music featuring Vintage Trouble originals “Another Man’s Words,“Nobody Told Me” and “Can’t Stop Rollin’”. They also perform The Spinners’ “I’ll Be Around,” which was covered on the Daryl Hall and John Oates album “Our Kind of Soul.”

Tommy Shaw – James St Laurent Photography


Live From Daryl’s House was created in 2007 by Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer Daryl Hall, who wanted a creative refuge from the grind of touring where he and his talented friends could hangout and rock out in a relaxed atmosphere. The Webby Award-winning program quickly took the music world and the internet by storm with its unique format, as Hall welcomed a new artist into his domain each week to enjoy some local cuisine and conversation, before hitting the studio for an unforgettable jam session. Since that time, Live From Daryl’s House has transformed into a nationally syndicated television series, attracting some of the biggest names in the industry and amassing a loyal cult following of fans eagerly anticipating the next new episode.

Joe Walsh


Other highlights include appearances and performances by guitar mastermind Joe Walsh (Oct. 15), chart-topping Goo Goo Dolls frontman Johnny Rzeznik (Oct. 22), jazz and soul songstress Kandace Springs (Oct. 29), Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Cheap Trick (Nov. 5), R&B trailblazer Smokey Robinson (Nov. 12), alt-rock mainstay Ben Folds (Nov. 19), legendary ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons (Dec. 3), and iconic soul outfit The O’Jays (Dec. 10).


In regard to the upcoming season’s lineup, Daryl Hall said, “There are so many great moments.

The O’Jays one gets to the core of what I’m really all about.”


“I’m excited that AXS TV is debuting the Tommy Shaw and Ty Taylor episodes, as the fans have been asking for new episodes. Our partnership with the team at AXS TV keeps getting stronger, so I’m proud that we’re able to deliver new content, especially during these challenging times,” said Executive Producer Jonathan Wolfson.


“Live From Daryl’s House really resonated with our viewers when it debuted on our Network last April,” said Lucia McCalmont, Vice President of Programming and Scheduling, AXS TV. “We strive to give our audience the best seat in the house to unforgettable performances and unprecedented access to their favorite entertainers, and this series is a perfect reflection of that. We are proud to have the opportunity to feature it in our programming lineup once again, and we are pleased to be able to extend and build upon this successful partnership with Good Cop/Bad Cop Productions.”

Rick Keene Music Scene – Dr. Trevor Payne Pays Tribute To Salome Bey

All rise.

Salome Bey was one of a kind. An artist. A person whose tools made an impact on the world.

Scroll below to Listen To My Interview with Dr. Trevor Payne

Salome Bey (October 10, 1933 – August 8, 2020) was an American-born Canadian singer-songwriter, composer, and actress who lived in Toronto Ontario since 1966.

In 2005, she was made an honorary Member of the Order of Canada.

Born to a middle-class African-American family in New Jersey, Bey formed a vocal group with her brother Andy Bey and sister Geraldine Bey (de Haas), known as Andy and the Bey Sisters. She performed in local clubs and toured North America and Europe. After moving to Toronto in 1964 and playing the jazz club circuit, she became known as “Canada’s First Lady of Blues”.

Bey appeared on Broadway in Your Arms Too Short to Box with God, for which she was nominated for a Grammy Award for her work on the cast album. She put together a blues & jazz cabaret show on the history of black music, Indigo – which earned her the Dora Mavor Moore Award for outstanding performance. The show was later taped for TV networks.

Bey recorded two albums with Horace Silver, and released live albums of her performances with the Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir and at the Montreux Jazz Festival.

She was part of the Canadian super-group Northern Lights which performed the charity single “Tears Are Not Enough” in 1985. Bey can be seen in the music video for the song singing the line “Every woman, child and man” with Mark Holmes of Platinum Blonde and Lorraine Segato of The Parachute Club.

Beginning in her early sixties, Bey began showing signs of dementia. As of 2011 her illness had progressed to the point that she could no longer perform.

Please listen below as Dr. Trevor Payne of The Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir Pays Homage to Salome Bey.

Rick Keene Music Scene – Saturday, In The Park …

All rise.

“We hear that phrase when presidents or judges come into the room,” says Porter, “but I’m thinking all of us rise – not just one person being exalted. We are all exalted and lifted up by love. This is my political thought and my real truth. It comes from my personality, my mother’s personality, the personality of the blues, and of black people. It’s this idea of making do with the scraps, of resurrection and ascension, and of whatever the current situation is, it can get better through love.” 

– Gregory Porter

Selwyn Birchwood is a master storyteller—both lyrically and musically. He’s an impressive, hard-crunching, modern blues guitarist. His fretwork is high-energy, raw and vivid…knife-edged leads and roadhouse-rattling grooves. He is graced with a depth and maturity that would be impressive in a grizzled veteran, let alone a fresh-faced young man.” —Living Blues

Shemekia Copeland is one of the great blues voices of our time. No one comes close to the sheer firepower that Copeland conjures at will.”

Champian Fulton Celebrates Charlie Parker’s Centennial with Birdsong
Featuring Tenor Saxophonist Scott Hamilton 

Due out August 28, 2020 

Jimmy Heath, a prolific saxophonist, composer and bandleader who played alongside some of the biggest names of jazz, including Miles Davis and John Coltrane, has died.

Heath died Sunday morning in Loganville, Georgia of natural causes, his grandson told NPR. He was 93 years old. His family was at his side, including his wife of 60 years, Mona Heath, his children Mtume and Rozie, his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and his brother, drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath.

In a career that spanned seven decades, Heath brought the bebop he loved to big bands — and into the 21st century.

Heath is best known as a saxophonist, but he wrote and arranged music throughout his life. In 2013, when he was 87 years old, he told NPR it was important to be a complete musician. “Not just to stand up and improvise,” he stressed. “You know, you got to compose. I want to be a person who can compose, and leave something here for posterity.”

Rick Keene Music Scene – One of The Greatest Songs in Canadian History Celebrates a Rebirth

If you are a music fan and you have not heard The Kings’ ‘This Beat Goes On / Switchin’ To Glide‘, shame on you.

It has been forty years this month since that song hit the Billboard Top 100. The Kings were ( for all intensive purposes) a one hit wonder. August 23rd, 1980, The Kings also marked history by closing the now-legendary Heatwave Festival in Toronoto. The Talking Heads, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders, Nick Lowe and Rockpile, Teenage Head, the B-52’s, and The Kings.

Historic !

That story is of a hard-working band hailing from Vancouver, BC and Oakville, ON that appeared on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, was nominated for a JUNO Award, named ‘Most Promising Group’ by Cashbox Magazine, hit Platinum-selling status, and has released five studio albums, two live albums, a live DVD, an anthology, a documentary, and numerous hit singles — including “another rocking two-fer,” “Circle of Friends / Man That I Am.”  The 2018 single was somewhat like arriving full circle; it was mixed in Nashville by industry legend Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, KISS), who also helmed the same role on their 1980’s debut, The Kings Are Here, and sophomore follow-up, Amazon Beach.

The Kings

Their midnight appearance at the now-storied Toronto-area festival — produced by John Brower–that’s inspired the exclusive release of The Kings: Live at Heatwave, a 30-minute concert movie

“The Kings and Teenage Head were the only bands that gave permission to be filmed,” recalls founding member Dave Diamond. “As Teenage Head’s audio has disappeared, this is the only surviving, authentic, and original sync footage from that day.”


“It was digitally restored frame by frame from its 16mm colour negative, and combined with authentic, remastered sound,” adds fellow founder Mister Zero. Sonny Keyes also chimes in: “The sound was recorded onsite by Comfort Sound’s Doug McClement on 8 track half inch analog tape and sounds amazing!”

“We’d worked hard and were ready for a gig like this,” says drummer Max Styles.

The Heatwave Festival at Mosport Park turned heads from the onset between its high profile roster, ultimate crowd size, and that it sat at a cultural turning point in the evolution of new wave music. (It was also marred with some scandal, but… Aren’t they all?)

“For some reason, they didn’t film our whole 55 minute set,” Diamond muses. “But there’s almost half an hour here, and we’re very proud of it.”

Rick Keene Music Scene – SCENE and Universal Music Canada Announce New Partnership and Launch Music Program

The brand partnership, ‘SCENE Music’ will deliver exclusive music content to Canadians commencing with a live-streamed event in Toronto this summer

Today, SCENE, Canada’s #1 Entertainment Loyalty Program, announced its new partnership with music label, Universal Music Canada, to showcase top artists and emerging performers through interactive programming. Starting with a livestream music event on August 26, the new initiative will introduce and feature a variety of artists and offer SCENE members exclusive content, socially distanced fan experiences and live events.

The Beaches

The inaugural SCENE Music event will be live-streamed from The Rec Room Toronto on August 26, 8:00 PM ET for SCENE members across the country to join in. This will be The Rec Room Toronto’s first live event since closing its doors due to COVID-19 earlier this year, and marks the venue opening for safe music experiences in the coming months.

Headlining the event is JUNO Award-winning, Toronto-based rock band The Beaches, who have been making waves since their 2018 JUNO award win for Breakthrough Group of the Year. Along with performing at a number of North America’s biggest music festivals, including Osheaga, Festival d’été de Québec and Austin City Limits, and opening for the likes of The Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters and Alanis Morrissette, The Beaches headlined their own highly successful The Professional Tour earlier this year, which culminated in three sold-out shows at The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto.

The Beaches will perform live at The Rec Room Toronto along with JUNO-nominated alternative pop group and Universal Music Canada band Valley, who have garnered over 60 million global streams and spent 2019 touring North America as support for Lennon Stella and The Band Camino on sold out tours. Additionally, singer-songwriter Soran from Montréal will grace the stage virtually with his blend of dance music, reggae, funk and soul.

Soran

The event will be in support of Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, where over the last month nearly $210,000 in donations from SCENE provided kids across the country with unforgettable experiences to enjoy with their friends and families. The impact of these donations will be celebrated in a live-streamed segment during the SCENE Music event. Fans can tune into the music event through SCENE.ca/music and get close to the action by participating in digital games and polls.

“We’re looking forward to this partnership with SCENE to bring some of our exciting Universal Music Canada artists into the homes of music lovers across Canada,” added Kristen Burke, EVP and General Manager of Universal Music Canada. “The Beaches, Valley and Soran all know how to put on a show and are the perfect artists to kick-off this new music program.”

Tune in on Wednesday, August 26 at 8:00 PM ET on SCENE.ca/music and dance along to hit songs and new singles, right from home! It is time to show that we’re better together, even if we’re apart. Members can use the hashtag #BetterTogether or visit SCENE’s social channels on Facebook (Facebook.com/SCENE), Twitter (@SCENECard) and Instagram (@SCENECard) to show how they are reconnecting with the people who matter most.

Rick Keene Music Scene – ”Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy’

The correct lyric from Jimi Hendrix’s Purple Haze is ‘scuse me while I kiss the sky’.

Actually, even after knowing the authorized version of the lyric, it still sounds that Hendrix is singing ‘kiss this guy’. It is possible that he phrased it ambiguously. He certainly played around with the lyric in later live performances.

Mick Jagger plays with lyrics. Often mispronouncing sounds both in the studio and live. James Brown told Jagger; “This way – if you forget the words, nobody will know …’
