Rick Keene Music Scene – Persuasion Brings The Best Santana Experience to Strangers in the Night

No negative waves.

Those are the words of Donald Sutherland’s character in the film Kelly’s Heroes. Sergeant Oddball’s (Sutherland) favorite band must have been Santana.

Carlos and his mates have and continue to deliver positive music in a world that requires it. From the rhythms to the guitar to the soulful lyrics; Santana is the ultimate uplifting experience.

Enter the band Persuasion.

A musical group intent on delivering the finest Santana Tribute in Canada. Whether it is studying the Santana catalog note-for-note or recruiting players who breathe the Santana vibe; Persuasion ranks atop the heap of live musical expeditions .

Rick Keene Music Scene – Spencer MacKenzie ; Canada’s Next Guitar Great?

Hard to have the Blues when you are nineteen years of age.

Sometimes – the classroom is all around and unless you are paying attention; the teacher remains invisible.

That is not the case with Spencer MacKenzie as he makes his way up the musical ladder. Already winning the best new artist at The Maple Blues Awards at the age of seventeen – Spencer is someone to watch and listen out for.

Rick Keene Music Scene – Trois Rivieres en Blues 2018

No Blues – no popular music. That is the fact.

Men like Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and Elmore James – the framework for what we now know as ‘auto-tune’. These men would be rolling in their graves if they knew how their hard work has been destroyed by computers.

 

That is the great thing about Blues music and the players that play it. Real. Authentic. True.

Please listen below to my chat with Brian Slack about some of these musicians that will be in

Trois Rivieres from Aug.23rd – Aug.26th.

Rick Keene Music Scene – Top Ten Signs You Are Musically Stuck in the Eighties …

Music can be a curse.

Unfortunately – the very same songs which may cause happiness, can also hold a soul prisoner.

Here are The Top Ten Signs You Are Musically Stuck in the Eighties.

10. Every time you sit down for dinner you say; ” I’m hungry like a wolf …”

9. Even at your African American friend’s nuptials you say; ” What a nice day for a white wedding.”

8. And you may ask yourself

Where is that large automobile?

7. You don’t like Mondays and you want to shoot the whole day down !

6. You refer to the Titanic disaster as ‘six months in a leaky boat.’

5. Your favorite David Bowie tune is Modern Love.

4. Every morning you tell your spouse to ‘ wake me up before you go go …’

3. You tell everyone that your kid ‘walks like an Egyptian …’

2. The only Beach Boys’ song you know is Kokomo.

And the number one sign you are musically stuck in the Eighties ?

1. You sold your house, your car and your first born child to purchase front row tickets to see Culture Club at Strangers in the Night !

Rick Keene Music Scene – Strangers in the Night 14; A Culture Club?

If you live or have lived in the West Island for the past twelve years, you are no stranger to the noise that takes place in the night.

The charity event, which traditionally raises funds to help local organizations – is also an opportunity for local restaurants to showcase their wares. Depending on how much you wish to spend, food and drink from practically all corners of the globe provide a backdrop to the live entertainment. Eighty restaurants delight the diners as local celebrities pass with twinkles in their eyes.

Founder Larry Day started the event in the parking lot of his club The Firm. The Boogie Wonder Band was the first band to dance the night into what is now history. As the event grew and the crowds and bands became larger, a move to Fairview Pointe Claire took place. The shopping center parking lot became the temporary home away from home for the likes of The Pointer Sisters, Randy Bachman, Blue Rodeo and April Wine among many more. Great bands and performances yet nothing compared to Day’s bucket list band in what may turn out as a farewell to Fairview.

In 2017 Styx was ‘in the house’ and as Styx keyboardist Lawrence Gowan pointed out from the stage; ‘it was the most fun most have ever had in a parking lot since high school and the back seat of a car’. Styx drew the largest and noisiest crowd to date.

Starting this year, a new page has been turned with Gowan’s words the closing script as Strangers in the Night will be in a new home this coming August.

Due to land expropriation at Fairview Pointe Claire for the Light Rail Project, Strangers in the Night will be held at the Borough Hall, 13665 Pierrefond Blvd. The date is August 25th and ‘the show’ will start at 8pm. 

 

The Miriam Foundation, Lymphoma Canada and the West Island Women’s Shelter will be the charities who benefit from the arrival of a bouncing ‘not really a baby’ boy.

Boy George that is and unless you lived solely under a Rock n Roll rock since 1980 – George and his Culture Club are in your ears every once in a while.

Do You Really Want to Hurt Me, Karma Chameleon and The Crying Game were staples of the video age eighties and chances are – Boy George’s effeminate image is etched in your memory if the songs are not. Culture Club set the bar high for drag queens to ‘come out’ by the millions? To dance the night away.

As usual , Strangers in the Night offers more than just one chance to dance.

Freddy James and Chrystal Waters are just two of the supporting acts providing beats to bump away everything eaten from the gourmet feast that took place earlier. More acts and delights will be added as the date approaches and details can be found shortly on the Strangers in the Night official website. Tickets will also be available shortly via Evenko.ca

Meanwhile – contact Ellen at 514-233-7535 for info and tickets.

Chances are the guys above know him well.

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.

Ground control to Maj … Oops! Wrong space journey …

Styx has returned to Earth momentarily with their first new album in 14 years ! One can say they are on a ‘mission’. A trip to insert a seamless album into the vast and historic Styx catalog. A recording that will not ‘skip’ the pure sound of the band’s timeline on disc or live.

Rick Keene Music Scene -I Dont Like Spiders and Snakes But That Ain’t What it Takes to Love Cecile Doo Kingue !

Cecile Doo Kingue is ready …

Ready for what?

Her first appearance at The Jazz Festival under her own name with her own trio.

Pretty cool as this ‘road traveler’ has enhanced her level of performance to an entire different level. Songwriting is one thing she accomplished a while ago. Playing non stop since the release of her last album has created almost perfection. Something musicians spend a lifetime never achieving or else – hunger would disappear.

Rick Keene Music Scene – Backstage Pass to Styx’ New Album; The Mission

Once in a lifetime …

 

That is how often a band like Styx comes along.

From the mid seventies until a decade later, no band from America wrote so many hits and gained so many fans.

High energy Rock n Roll, theatrical know how and heart wrenching balladry. Styx was and remains – the blueprint for a successful Rock n Roll band.

Now – as if a double exclamation point was needed, Styx has emerged from the studio with ‘The Mission’. An album which solidifies their place atop the American Rock n Roll charts.

Please listen below to  a very special segment as the members of Styx talk about The Mission. Hear the tracks as well !

Jean-Luc Ponty and Jon Anderson

8 pm @ Theatre St.-Denis

Buy Tickets Here !

 

Jean – Luc Ponty is an innovator …

Jean-Luc Ponty Cathy Miller Approved photo 1

Credited as one of the first musicians to implement the violin within Jazz music, Ponty has not stopped there. A musical thirst has carried the seventy-one year old native of France through a long, creative and prosperous learning career.

Jon Anderson Cathy Miller approved photo 1

Beginning with his first record deal which saw Jean-Luc entering the world of Rock n’ Roll via Frank Zappa’s sensibilities, Ponty’s journey has seen him collaborate with the ‘who’s who’ of the music industry.

The most recent being a long overdue project with Jon Anderson of the famed prog-Rock group Yes.

APB Live photo by Cathy Miller 2 hi res

 The 2015 Anderson-Ponty Band album; ‘ Better Late Than Never’, is a form of cohabitation. Combining Ponty’s and Anderson’s music in perfect harmony. Working with Anderson is the first time Ponty has worked with a vocalist so in effect – the disc is a duet of sorts. A marriage of violin and the human voice.

Haymaker; A Real Rock n Roll Band!

Apparently – swatting mosquitoes and braving – 40 temperatures; has no negative effects on playing Rock n Roll.

How else can you explain The Guess Who and  ‘ Haymaker’? Two Rock bands who have been spawned in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Sure – two of Haymaker’s members were originally from Montreal yet it is in their adopted hometown when the musical chops appeared. Canada should be thankful. 

Please listen as lead singer Evan along with lead guitar player Matt – explain the band’s first CD release; Entertainment for the Poor. They also talk about their  subsequent ‘mini’ tour.  A jaunt which shall forever be known by a particular name.

A name which every Rock n Roll band can relate to …
