Andrew and I decided to sample sounds of some places we had traveled to and turned out a playlist filled with horn heavy bands from Ithaca, NY; Boston, MA; and Austin, TX.

Big Mean Sound MachineThe Warning (Live in Studio)

 

With everything from ska to reggae to hip hop, we get to have a little fun with some great grooves from particularly talented musicians. In fact, I even tossed in some links a few links to live performances  from Big Mean Sound Machine, Those Nights and Viva La Hip hop. One of the major aspects that separates musical projects in a world of auto tune, laptop studios, and inexpensive recording equipment is the ability to deliver in real time. This can mean expertly playing fantastic music, creating an incredible live experience, or even things we haven’t seen yet. More festivals are popping up all the time as a testament to our hunger for music that can touch us directly.
 

Support Local Music

Despite being in a society that is always lauding those that do what they love, we often forget how easily we can contribute and build around that very premise. The life of a musician is hard, but it can be so rewarding with just a little support and appreciation from those that love what you do.

Michael Bridgett

Writer, vocalist, lyricist and raconteur. In other words, the guy everyone really loved at the party. I traffic in things geek, existential, fun and funny. I believe that it is the compassionate sharing of ideas that will lead us to a new age. An age in which all benefit no matter who we are, where we are, or what we want. We must allow ourselves to grow beyond tribal concerns as the fate of everything is at stake. What we do here gets us one bit closer every day.
