Tracey’s Weekend Run Around

Posted on June 5, 2016June 7, 2016Categories Uncategorized   Leave a comment on Tracey’s Weekend Run Around

I like starting the weekends early. Many years ago,  when life got real and took a drastic turn, Thursday nights became my salvation. That was the night that the band I represented played a cool little watering hole in Milford, PA. The Waterwheel Cafe is a great little place to eat, drink and dig on cool music. It is in an artsy town, located in the Northeastern corner of PA just over New Jersey’s border to the east and New … Continue reading “Tracey’s Weekend Run Around”

In fact, there is a plethora of  fun and excitement awaiting anyone ready for action! There are many options almost every night … Continue reading “NC’s Best Live Music Regional Rundown!

The Soil of My Roots

Posted on June 2, 2015March 21, 2019Categories Life and Living It 1 Comment on The Soil of My Roots

I am proud to tell anyone that I am from New Jersey. When you move to other areas, you see clearly that you are from a very unique society of strongly opinionated people who share their thoughts with candid directness, with anyone. It’s like being from a land all its own. Seems hard to deny though that there is something about us folks, born and bred in Jersey, that makes us an interesting breed. I am not sure if it was … Continue reading “The Soil of My Roots”

Rockin’ the Blues with Bill Lyerly

After not much prodding from several friends I went to Bambooz Tiki Bar in New Bern, NC last month to see a band I never heard a thing about. Many of my friends, on the other hand, are a part of guitar man and music maker, Bill Lyerly’s story. Impressed by his playing, I was drawn to his rock edge with strong riffs of blues persuasion. Following the show, I asked Lyerly if he’d be interested in an interview. He … Continue reading “Rockin’ the Blues with Bill Lyerly”
