Rick Keene Music Scene; Styx Headlining ‘Strangers in the Night 13’ – August. 25th at Fairview Pte Claire

The word ‘ legendary ‘ is tossed around more often than a flea – bit peanut monkey … 

In the case of the Rock band Styx, legendary may be an understatement.

Formed in 1972 , in Chicago – the band took the seventies and eighties music scene by storm. Hit after hit propelled them into super-stardom and all these years later, their popularity remains greater than ever.

The album Grand Illusion‘ (1977) with songs like the title track and ‘Fooling Yourself‘ was one of the discs that topped the charts and the fan’s hearts. ‘Pieces of Eight ‘ ( 1978), ‘Cornerstone’ (1979) and ‘Paradise Theatre’  (1981) came next. These albums sold more than two million copies each making Styx the first band to release four consecutive Triple-platinum albums.

‘Lady’, ‘ Come Sail Away’, ‘ Renegade’, ‘Blue Collar Man’ – the list is as long as one of their monumental shows. Sitting is not an option at a Styx show especially since Canadian Lawrence Gowan joined the band in early 2000.

Gowan

On August 25th 2017, Styx will be headlining Strangers in the Night 13. The charity event should be the best one night yet !

Please listen below to Gowan  dictate The Top Ten Reasons Why He Joined Styx, some words from Tommy Shaw about his first summer concert and some great Styx songs !

Stay tuned for more fantastic Styx-related stuff as the show gets closer !

Thanks for listening ! Talk soon !

Rick Keene Music Scene; Saxophonist Noah Preminger ‘Protests’ With The Help of Bob Dylan, George Harrison and ‘An American Conscience’

Noah Preminger likes to think …

th

Call it a social conscience or just being a caring human being. Either way, that mindset created Noah’s recent album; ‘Meditations on Freedom ‘. A response to ‘craziness ‘ which was released on inauguration day in the United States. January 20th, 2017 was not Trump’s day, it was Noah’s …

th-4

Considering Bob Dylan was / is considered one of the premiere voices of protest in the States, the song ‘ Only a pawn in their game’ is a fitting addition to Noah’s new disc. The album is completed with original compositions dotted with cover songs Noah deemed part of the solution.

Please listen below  to some tunes from the album and a great chat with Noah concerning many valuable issues unresolved in the United States and some valuable music lessons.

Noah ? What’s Up?

Noah Preminger – A ‘ Bluesy ‘ Kinda Sax Player …

 Noah Preminger is not your average run-of-the-mill saxophone player …

HeadShot2014_w1

A native of Connecticut, currently dividing his time between Boston and New York – Noah has released a very interesting album.

‘Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground’ brings the listener on a history lesson which revolves around Mississippi. In music language, Mississippi means the Delta Blues and the Delta Blues are the backbone of most forms of popular music.

Skip James was the man who introduced Noah to The Blues and for Preminger, the long and winding  trip continues. Exploring legends such as Willie Johnson, Booker T. White and Charley Patton – Noah is on the proper highway. His own private Route 66.
