Rick Keene Music Scene – Danielle Duval; Injecting Freshness Into Rock n Roll

Sometimes, music needs to be injected with the past.

 

Danielle Duval, a former Montrealer now living in Toronto, appears to have accomplished the large task of injecting some fresh blood into Rock n Roll.

Not inventing the wheel but incorporating sounds she heard from a band which were rather large in the late 70’s and eighties.

Please listen below to some tracks from Danielle’s new album Lose It and find out what rare pieces of musical equipment were used in the recording of the album.

Danielle? What’s up?

Rick Keene Music Scene – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band?

Sgt. Pepper ? Familiar ?

 

 

Chances are the guys above know him well.

It’s been fifty years since the four headed monster known as The Beatles recorded an album that forever changed popular music. ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ altered the way people sang, recorded and marketed their music. A feather in the Fab Four’s hat to be sure.

 

The San Francisco String Trio know Sgt. Pepper and they love him ! So much so – their album  “May I Introduce You‘ pays homage to The Beatles’ landmark album.

Please listen below to hear some new / old songs from the album. A disc that everyone hums along to at one point in their lives !

Rick Keene Music Scene – Larry Day Talks Strangers in the Night 13!

Once upon a time, in a bar far far away …

Strangers in the Night – an idea born in the parking lot of a bar named The Firm, featured one band. The Boogie Wonder Band were the event’s initial entertainment and from that point on; founder Larry Day never looked back.

 

Fast forward twelve years and the 2017 edition is poised to be the biggest and best yet! More food, more space and one of the biggest selling bands of all time ! Strangers in the Night 13 is on a ‘Mission’ and the super-group Styx just happen to have a new album of the same name!

 

The album; The Mission has accomplished it’s mission. In 2017 – Styx is back on the Billboard 100 and they are landing in Quebec on August 25th.

Please listen below to my chat with founder Larry Day. He has been a big fan of Styx since the mid seventies. Discover his thoughts on Strangers in the Night 13 and find out what you need to know to attend what should be the biggest show ever in the West Island!
