The Foo Fighters won the 2022 Grammy Awards, but they couldn’t take the stage and thank their friends, family and fans. Their drummer, Taylor Hawkins, died a few days ago, on March 25, just before the band was supposed to play a gig in Colombia. Following the tragedy, the Foo Fighters canceled all of their upcoming shows, including their performance at the Grammy Awards on April 3.

It would have been great if the Foo Fighters had attended the Grammy Awards, as they now hold a major record.

In many ways, the 2022 legislative session has been more stressful than other sessions. But this year I was able to participate in something very unique that I will remember all my life.

On Thursday, March 10, I joined a bipartisan group of legislators from the West Virginia Senate and House of Delegates for the first of what we hope will be annual legislative jam sessions.

I don’t know who first came up with the idea of ​​bringing together musicians from the Legislative Assembly, but Del. Todd Longanacre, R-Greenbrier, was the first to announce the event from the House floor a week before the event. The jam session was moved to the evening of March 10 due to the twice-daily floor sessions taking place to get the bills out.

Among the participants were myself on bass and Longanacre on drums. Guitarists included State Senator Mark R. Maynard, R-Wayne; Of the. Chad Lovejoy, D-Cabell; Del Joey Garcia, D-Marion; and Del. Mike Pushkin, D-Kanawha. Of the. Guy Ward, R-Marion, was also on bass.

No one really knew how it would turn out. Heck, I didn’t even know if I would be allowed to participate. Lawmakers were notified, but there was no indication whether journalists could also block. Some members of the press despise this kind of fellowship with people we also need to cover.

However, I come from the Nate Wooley School of Journalism, where a reporter might as well write a critical morning piece about a government official and break bread with that same official for lunch. Business is business and personal is personal. That doesn’t mean I won’t come the next day and write an article that a legislator probably won’t like. But I also think that we are all human and that we need moments of humanity.

This legislative jam session was truly a moment of humanity, especially that night. This was just after the House of Delegates debated for nearly two hours Senate Bill 498, the bill dealing with the discussion of matters derived from critical race theory. The rhetoric flared up. Giant picture prints showing controversial footage from the nation’s complicated past involving race were displayed.

An amendment by House Education Committee Minority Chairman Sean Hornbuckle, D-Cabell, that would have created a commission of higher education officials to help create a curriculum to talk about race and history was not considered relevant to the bill. At one point, Hornbuckle, one of three black lawmakers in the House, was ordered to sit down. Other members of the Democratic minority tried to challenge the acting president’s decision at the time.

The bill passed, but Democratic lawmakers demanded that all bills be read in their entirety instead of being summarized. It’s a right that all legislators have, but it’s usually only used in protest and to slow things down. The move ended up causing the majority to move the remaining bills to the active schedule and adjourn for the day.

The drama pushed the jam session back to after 7 p.m. House members from both parties were stressed, upset and angry after Thursday’s debate. Many returned directly to their homes or returned to their hotel rooms. It was unclear if anyone would still show up for the jam session on stage at the West Virginia Culture Center.

When I walked in, bass guitar slung over my shoulder and amp in hand, Longanacre and several lawmakers were seated enjoying some refreshments. A few more arrived a bit later and we started to take the stage – the same stage used by Mountain Stage. The stagehands hooked us all up to the PA system, we tuned our instruments, the soundman set our levels and we started playing.

I come from a family of Oneness Pentecostal musicians. I’ve always known how to sing, but I’m not a great bass player. I’m not even a good bass player. I played more in my youth and I’m just dabbling these days. But as long as I know the key, I can usually find the changes. As neither of us had played music together it was a learning experience but we quickly found our groove on several songs.

Longanacre is probably as right wing as Pushkin is left wing and I suspect they don’t talk much during the session. But on stage, Pushkin — a legit professional musician from Charleston — became the song’s de facto frontman, while Longanacre kept a really good beat on drums. The rest of us were able to follow along, find key changes, and play.

After the stress of Thursday and the general stress of the session, the jam session was just what was needed to appease the wild beast. There were no delegates, senators or journalists on the stage. There were no Republicans or Democrats on stage. We were just people who liked to play music together.

Longanacre named the band Cheap Purple: cheap because we were all (mostly) amateurs, and purple because the red Republicans and blue Democrats got together. The joke is that assuming all elected members on stage return to Charleston next year, we will learn three songs during the session and perform those songs.

It was truly one of my favorite moments as a state reporter.

The Washington DC-based band ‘Scythian’ took the stage at XL Live in Harrisburg on Friday night.

HARRISBURG, Pa. — From the streets of Washington DC to stages across the country, brothers Danylo and Alexander Fedoryka have been having a blast over the past 18 years.

“We’re going around the country and going to Ireland, so it’s been an adventure,” Danylo said.

Their band ‘Scythian’ took center stage at XL Live in Harrisburg on Friday night. Both describe their bluegrass music as having Irish-Celtic roots.

The brothers, who are sons of first-generation Ukrainian immigrants, also regularly perform songs that highlight their heritage.

“We feel very connected to this country because all of our lives we’ve always been very culturally connected in the sense of ‘Oh, that was our homeland,'” Alexander said.

“Same [the name] Scythians… They were in the region of Ukraine [known as] ancient nomads, so even the name of our band comes from our Ukrainian heritage,” Danylo explained.

Now, amid Russia’s attacks on Ukraine, the two feel an even deeper connection to their ancestry.

“I didn’t know how Ukrainian I was until I woke up in the morning and got about 10 text messages from friends saying ‘Pray for Ukraine’ and I was like ‘Wait , no “and it’s almost like the bottom of my soul is falling,” Danilo said.

The situation abroad gives new meaning to their mission to celebrate Ukrainian culture through song.

“This year, our sets have taken on even more importance in our lives, so we can share that culture with people, and that’s just what we try to do in our own little way as musicians,” said Alexander.

The brothers have also created a relief fund whose proceeds go directly to Poland to help Ukrainian refugees.

They hope they can do their part to help their homeland.

“People say, ‘How can you play the violin while the world is burning?’” Danylo said. “But I think in times like this, it’s doubly important to do the things that are true, human, good and beautiful. Otherwise, the darkness wins.

You can find out more about how to donate to the fund on the group’s Facebook page here.

“Oh my name is McNamara, I’m the frontman of the band,” the opening line of a famous song describing the jovial antics of an Irish American band at the turn of the 20th century in New York City.

Now a new book written by Dr Derek Mulcahy and published by the Limerick Writers’ Center titled The Leader of the Band, describes the life and history of Limerick man Patrick J. McNamara with his brothers Michael, John and Thomas who formed the original McNamara’s group and emigrated from Limerick in the early 1900s.

The book, which was launched at St. Mary’s Cathedral by Irish archivist and recorder collector Alan Morrisroe, is accompanied by two music CDs of McNamara’s Band New York recordings from 1921 to 1927.

Derek Mulcahy, author of The Leader of the Band, is no stranger to the music of Patrick J. McNamara. He is the current conductor of St. Mary’s Band Fife and Drum Band, a role that Patrick J. McNamara held with distinction in the 1890s before emigrating from Limerick to New York.

A graduate of Mary Immaculate College, Derek completed his doctoral dissertation on “The Evolution of the Limericks Fife and Drum Tradition from the 1830s to the 1930s” in 2017.

He is also an accomplished flute, fife and whistle player, he has recorded and toured with various groups in Europe and the United States and has been teaching the flute and whistle locally since the 1990s. “Writing and compiling this book was been a labor of love for me, ”said Derek.

“It took the best part of three years of work to put all the information together to present a complete picture and describe the importance of the McNamara, and in particular of Patrick J. McNamara, in the musical life of Limerick and thereafter of New York.” he said.

A unique aspect of the publication is the inclusion of two CDs with 44 recordings by Patrick J. McNamara and his various bands, recorded in New York.

The beginning of the 20th century saw great strides in recording music and was an important aspect of the success of groups like McNamara’s group. Thanks to the expertise of Alan Morrisroe, collector and archivist of old Irish 78 rpm records, the tracks were compiled and remastered at their original speed.

The Leader of the Band is available direct from the author, at St Mary’s Band Hall every Sunday from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., online and in various bookstores.

Eagles Of Death Metal (Press)

ZAGREB, September 27, 2021 – The legendary savages of American rock’n’roll, Eagles of Death Metal, return to Zagreb for a club concert at the Culture Factory on Friday, March 25, 2022.

EODM had previously sold Boogaloo in Zagreb and the Culture Factory.

This time they are coming to Croatia as part of the second part of the world tour, which marks 24 years of the game, and in the first half of next year they will visit 30 cities in 19 countries in Europe. The representation at the Culture Factory in Zagreb will be the only one in the region.

“Anyone who loves rock’n’roll should get into rock’n’roll. I feel like I’ve been locked up for years and ready to let go. The Eagles of Death Metal are ready to rise, ”said frontman Jesse Hughes.

Eagles of Death Metal was founded by best friends Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) in 1998 in California. The name came when they wondered what the combination of the Eagles and death metal would look like, a genre that they don’t play despite the name, but with unlimited frames, they represent energetic rock with guitar riffs and fierce drums, playing with dirty rock aesthetics and witty lyrics.

One of the most entertaining rock’n’roll groups and giants of the genre. The albums “Peace, Love, Death Metal” (2004), “Death by Sexy” (2006) and “Heart On” (2008) propelled them to the top of the world guitar scene, while hits like “I Want You So Hard ”,“ I Got a Feelin ‘(Just Nineteen) ”,“ Wannabe in LA ”,“ Miss Alissa ”,“ Cherry Cola ”,“ Only Want You ”promise destructive energy.

The group also announced the release of a six-song EP, and “Eagles of Death Metal Presents A Boots Electric Christmas” will be released on November 19. During the release, EODM’s Jesse “Boots Electric” Hughes with his alter ego will contribute to holiday classics such as “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”, “Put A Little Love In Your Heart”, “Little Drummer Boy” or “Little Town Of Bethlehem”. “O Holy Night” will be recorded in a special aappella version, which will be sung by Joshua Homme of EODM.

EODM returns to a Zagreb club that they know well, in front of a growing loyal audience with each new arrival. They will be accompanied on the tour by the group Bones UK.

Tickets go on sale Friday October 1 at a price of 150 kn. This price is valid until November 30, and from December 1 it will be 170 kn. If there is any left over, the ticket price will be 200 kn on the day of the concert.

Interesting music filled the air for a four-hour period on the afternoon of September 18 at the Lake County History Center in Painesville Township.

An organ rally was held at the organization’s grounds, which is located at 415 Riverside Drive in Painesville Township.

The Mid-America section of the Musical Box Society International hosted the event. Chapter president Rob Pollock said the group had a connection to the Lake County History Center dating back to the 1970s.

In fact, the Lake County History Center is one of the few museums in America to feature some of MBSI’s music boxes.

“(Lake County History Center) was the oldest service location where we displayed our museum items,” Pollock said. “And we’ve had people here trained to play them. So not only can you watch them, but you can also hear them.

Dawson Bogert, of Corry, Pa., Poses with a “monkey organ” belonging to his mother, Alice Bogert, who is seated right in the background. At the top of the organ is a monkey named Bardell. When spelled, Bardell is made up of the first initials of the names of Alice’s seven children.

About 10 years ago, the Mid-America Chapter of MBSI hosted a rally at the Lake County History Center that featured full-size organs.

For the September 18 rally, Pollock said nine members of MBSI’s Mid-America Chapter were to bring 16 different types of group organs or various other music boxes to the Lake County History Center.

Pollock, who lives in Urbana, Ohio, brought two bodies to the event. One was a 1900 hand organ that is supported by a strap around the player’s neck.

“(The organ) was made by the Austro-Hungarian army to give it to their invalids so that they could earn money on the streets,” Pollock said. “At the time, they did not pay pensions, so these organs were often rented by soldiers or invalids who took them to the streets and played music. Some people paid them for the music and others paid them to go away.

The underside of the organ’s top cover also includes a hand-written panel listing a program of five songs the organist would play for passers-by.
