Live From Dinner Presents SCR 9-22-2018


#LivefromDinner is a double curation entity. What they do is curate a music event, then curate a tasting menu based on the band’s collective palates. For this evening Chef Tevaughn White designed the menu.

As you know this blogger has been a #superfan of #SCRtheband for some time now. We feel they are #primedandready with the songs and stage presence for #biggerandbetterthings. Last night’s second installment of Live From Dinner certainly was no exception is proving that.

The evening began with the flow of rapper #Marcaux. We couldn’t find any social media on him but, keep a look out. The man has a story to tell, with the skills to deliver.

Next up our inspiration for the evening’s menu SCR (You may remember them as #SirCadianRhythm). They had never performed as an acoustic act before, but you certainly couldn’t tell from their performance. Jack (vocals),Alex (guitar),Matt(Trombone,Keys,Melodica), Micah(Drums,Beard) and Richie (Bass) delighted a #packedhouse with regular tunes from their repertoire as well as hints of new material from their upcoming album to be recorded this Fall. Also dropped was the news that they will be performing on The Rock Boat, a floating #musicfestival in Feb 2019.

Pamnation Party Stage
Pleasantville Music Festival 2018
July 14th, 2018

This is the time of the year The Music Matters loves the most. For this blogger, #festivalseason is our #holidayseason. None more prominent or enjoyable than the #PleasanvilleMusicFestival which has a stage dedicated to the #musiccurations of promoter #Pamnation.

The festivities begin with the female fronted, hard rocking sounds of #battleofthebands winners Gilbert – the band. The day moves forward to Alternative Rockers Friends At The Falls who are from Mahopac. Next up will be Loose Buttons. Veterans of the NYC scene for years, we caught them this past March at ALPHAVILLE. and were impressed by their energy and songwriting.

The day heats up as Late Night Episode hits the stage. This blogger, having seen them twice this past year (Garcia’s and The Capitol Theatre) looks forward to seeing these rockers from Scarsdale and the showmanship/tunesmith abilities they bring. Following them will be a band that mixes R&B,Hip Hop and Rock – Juice. We were lucky enough to catch them at #TheCapitolTheater (The same show with #LateNighEpisode as they supported last year’s #PamnationPartyStage headliners Ripe).

Wrapping up the festivities we are anxious to see Funk ‘n Hop masters Harsh Armadillo. Noon to Nine come see the latest in #NewMusicFinds. Be sure to comment,share and of course follow all these bands as well as #Pamnation and #PleasantvileMusicFestival2018 on #socialmedia. Get tix now to be there 7-14!

All Types of Kinds – Bowery on the LES of NYC – Monday March 5th, 2018

All Types of Kinds
Bowery on the LES of NYC
Monday March 5th, 2018

There are countless thousands of bands performing around the world seeking fame, fortune and everything that goes with it. Every once in a while though, you run into a group who does it simply because The Music Matters. This blogger witnessed that first hand last evening on the #LES of #NYC.

Due to a scheduling #snafu at a mainstream nightclub we traveled downtown from #Pleasantville too late to see #AllTypesofKinds perform. The band had never met us, did not know of our blogging, or even our name. Only that we had traveled a distance to see them. At their absolute insistence, they #tooktothestreets and performed an impromptu set which delighted not only this blogger, but attracted the attention of folks passing by as well.

For those not in the know, #ATOK is a 4 piece multi-talented group who’s roots expand all over the NYC area.Their mix of Alternative/Folk and Hip Hop is unique. The band is harmony rich, with flowing melody. They are certainly fine tunesmiths as well. They will perform as a full on #rockband or as a stripped down #acousticact. Their catalog of original material is extensive. Festival and tour promoters take notice as these folks (as proven last night) can certainly entertain any audience any time, anywhere

Please follow this outstanding combo live, on social media and always remember #themusicmatters
