Boy George Culture Club


Boy George and Culture Club

Photos & Review by Momma Dukes

Following on from his sell-out Meltdown performance Boy George, universally recognised as one of our generation’s most iconic artists, is back with his first new studio album of original material in almost two decades. ‘This Is What I Do’ was released on 28th October and is being supported by live dates in the UK and the USA-including the most recent stop at the Paramount NY on November 14th & 15th – Yours truly was there and I have to say I was not disappointed at all! I was the “dancing” photographer in the pit – what a night! He played the favorites like  “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya”, “Miss Me Blind” “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” and included some covers by Bread, The Rolling Stones, Prince and T.Rex – as well as a few songs from his new album.  The Show was great, I give it 100 thumbs up!

The Eastern Condition


The Eastern Condition


The Eastern Condition is a 4-piece/sometimes more-piece band/conceptual music project originating from various parts of Long Island. We listen to metal, hardcore, progressive, funk, indie, hip hop, jazz, and a variety of other music, and we write what feels good to us. We are currently recording our music, which took us seven years because of the re-grouping of the band.

The band has been together (on and off) for 7 years – with Tom and Mike writing most of the music.  Their current line-up (and the best they’ve had to date) is Tom “Ginger” (Guitar), Mike (Drums), Ryan (Bass) and the newest member John (axe). (Continue Reading)

Frontline-Beat Street


FRONTLINE BIOGRAPHY Jason Delismon – Lead vocals, Guitars Steve Vuko – Guitars Alex Loeber – Bass Diane Tragos – Keyboards Jason Jaros – Drums Guitarist / singer / songwriter Jason Delismon put together Chicago based modern rock act Frontline after leaving his former band, A.D.D.(for whom he was the drummer) when his initial idea for a solo project grew legs and began adding members after writing sessions with guitarist, Mike Nowak. “It was just a writing thing at first,” relates Delismon, “and soon things just started to click and it became obvious that we needed to see this thing through.” The quintet became a fully working entity in January 2016 and began hitting the local club scene just shy of a year later, after working through all the necessary kinks and endless rehearsals in order to get things just right. Acceptance was swift and measured and Delismon knew that following through with a full band was the right idea. “We had a buzz right out of the gate,” recalls Jason. “There was a great amount of hype which was basically organically created.” Entering Chicago’s AMG Studios in February 2016, the band spent six solid months working on Cold World with producer Mike Brezen. “Mike was just a logical choice for us. He has an outstanding facility and his attention to detail and work ethic are both fantastic,” says the frontman. Opening with the album’s lead single, “Follow” (about losing a loved one) the title track follows in quick succession and addresses one of life’s lessons to learn – the subject of cheating. “We’ve all had this happen to us at one time or another and it’s never pleasant,” says Jason. “I figured we’d confront the subject and get it out of my system.” With “Don’t Misunderstand” the band takes on the doubters of the world and with “Changes” the subject of new opportunities is tackled. “This one just stemmed from my decision to move from behind the drums to a more focal point, singing and playing guitar, both of which I’ve also been doing for quite a long time, “Delismon elaborates. With a hundred bands seemingly popping up every week and social media giving everyone immediate marketability options, competition has never been more fierce for an audience’s attention span, which as Delismon is quick to point out, is shorter than ever. When you’ve got the goods, however, you have one leg up on your competitors. Jason sums Frontline up, “We write memorable songs that people can relate to and we have a positive message, which kind of goes against the grain these days.”

Chuck Berry


“If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry’.”- John Lennon

Charles Edward Anderson “Chuck” Berry (October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2017) was one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. With songs such as “Maybellene” (1955), “Roll Over Beethoven” (1956), “Rock and Roll Music” (1957) and “Johnny B. Goode” (1958), Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive. Writing lyrics that focused on teen life and consumerism and developing a music style that included guitar solos and showmanship (duck walk), Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock music.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra Winter Tour November 17th-December 31st 2016

Dear TSO Fans,

‘The Ghosts of Christmas Eve’ was an experiment, to take something that was conceived for TV and try to express that story live on stage. Integrating segments of the TV show, with a live narrator, and full rock band was something TSO has never done. It brought back so many memories to see Ossie Davis and everyone else who helped make that TV special into the annual tradition that it has become. (Continue Reading)
