AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
Reggae/Blue/and A Birthday Bash!!!!!
I thought I was booked to interview Ray the Gay but skypes lack of clarity made Reggae sound like Ray the Gay.
I interviewed the Reggae band - Indaze. The bass player looked dead on like a failed morning show host I know all too well who doesn't like me ALL TOO WELL AT ALL. I would rather throw him down a well. Indaze kicked ass. I saw them live at the Brooklyn Bowl, very fun and great venue.
Then we hit it up with a South Philly, 9th Street Italian Market, interview with Ray Charles Impersonator and solo performer, singer/song writer, dancer, overall entertainer - Movin Melvin Brown. WOW, check out an acapella solo of Ray Charles right from 9th Street. He is off to tour the world, Germany next. I hope to hook up with a live set from Philly or New York on his return. Till then enjoy him on the show and I will get him on again soon for more extensive interview and music.
Then a sponsor, Macha Bar. Check out this new store in Brooklyn, NY, walking distance to Brooklyn Bowl, great venue. Get some natural energy before the gig!!!!!

Sectas - Rock/Alt Metal
Remember when the mention of Metal music set your heart on fire, the lights, the power guitar solos, the long hair and the singers actually sang? SECTAS does, this powerful trio (Christian Lee Lead Guitar/Lead Vocals, David Sectas Bass/Back-up Vocals and Jonathan Collier Drums/Back-up vocals) are sure to bring you back to a time when metal Gods were hailed as heroes, as they should. Christianís gu...itar licks have the ability to grab your very soul and make it throw up the metal horns, Davidís stellar bass tactics tantalize the beast within to scream like a teenage groupie and Jonathanís drums reach into your chest forcing your heart rhythm to match his fierce double kick abilities. Their musical influences span from Alice in Chains to Megadeth and many more making them a force to be reckoned with in a metal world that lost its way.
