Song of the Week: Voodoo Lounge

Posted in Trop Rock Artists | Comments Off on Song of the Week: Voodoo Lounge

Hey there!

I’m going to try to share as many new songs as I can, over the next month or two. These are songs I’m thinking about putting onto my next CD, in draft form. The mix is my “homebrew” version, and will likely be very different when the album comes out next summer. It’ll almost certainly be better there. But it’s a chance for you to start to get to know the songs themselves, and a chance for me to hear what *you* like.

Today’s offering is something I call “Voodoo Lounge.” It’s something I wrote to fill a hole in my catalog – I don’t have a good New Orleans blues number. I expect it’ll get the whole “smoky blues” treatment by Kevin.

The story behind the song is…well, I made it up. That said, anyone out there who actually knows something about Voudou isn’t likely to get *too* annoyed at me, because I tried to get enough of the details right.

I’d like to know what you think of it, so please leave comments or send me an email.

Here’s the song: Voodoo Lounge

I hope you like it.

And Happy New Years!

Loren

Top Caribbean Blogs of 2011 – Fun In The Sun With Some Rum

Posted in Island Enthusiasts | Comments Off on Top Caribbean Blogs of 2011 – Fun In The Sun With Some Rum

Where has the year gone? 2011 has come and gone like the relentless tide. I guess it’s true what they say, time does fly when you’re having fun rum.

Part of my job as a Caribbean blogger is to constantly be on the look out for new Caribbean sites that I can learn from and in-turn tell you about. Reading other island sites/blogs is one of the best parts of this job. I love seeing what other people have to say about particular islands and the fascinating characters that call them home.

Below is a list of some of the top Caribbean Travel/Island/Sailing blogs that I’ve found and read on a daily basis. I wrote about the top Caribbean blogs last year as well, it’s interesting to see how the list has changed over the past year. There are a few new comers and of course ones that continue to produce great content and make our island dreams come true. Each one of these sites has a great person or team behind it and will give you great insight into their part of the island lifestyle.

The list is in no particular order. Don’t be offended if you aren’t on the list. I read a lot more than just these, I just can’t list hundreds of blogs here. If you have an Island/Beach/Caribbean style blog and would like to be mentioned, just leave a comment and link below and I’ll check it out. Always looking for more Caribbean sites to lime with!

 

2 Gringos in the Caribbean – Tired of the rat race and cold weather in the northeastern United States, we decided to chuck the life and try something new. We pulled up roots, sold the house, took only the most prized possessions and with child and Jack Russell Terrier headed to the Turks Caicos Islands.

Adventure Antigua – a blog about island life spent with sun, sea and sand.

Anguilla Bliss – Great blog about the day to day happenings on Anguilla.

His blog will take you through the Rum lifestyles of a fine group of people that enjoy the fun and pleasure of fine rums. He travels to distilleries, partys, and Rum Events to bring people the Rumstyles of all those he comes in contact with.

Barbados Sun – Beach, Sea, Sun – It doesn’t get any better. Barbados travel information.

Irie Time – “My Irie Time is a collection of photographs and stories from our travels through the Caribbean. “Irie” means to be at peace with your state of being, and in a worry-free mindset, just how I feel when my feet hit the sand on the beach.”

ISLANDS Magazine – This magazine’s blog is great. It features stories from islands all over the world. They have some of the best writers and photographers in the business.

Pirate’s Paradise Adventures – This is a blog for a boat rental company in the USVI. They do a great job of writing interesting stories about the Virgin Islands.

Professor Beach – From the professor: I’ve always said “its fun to visit the worlds best beach locations, but what really matters is that there is great town up the road to eat, drink, shop, sleep and be entertained in”.

Rum Connection – This guy knows his rum. Mike from RumConnection.com is a rum expert and regular judge in international rum competitions. Dedicated to providing rum lovers with the latest news, exclusive articles and critical information about the tradition and culture of rum.

Rumdood – Matt Robold is an Orange County, California-based rum connoisseur and cocktail enthusiast that likes to write about his passions on his blog RumDood.com.

Rum Therapy – A soft tropical breeze, the warm sun touching your skin and a rum beverage in hand. Therapeutic, huh? We think so and through our line of vacation wear, t-shirts, caps and more, we hope to embody the island spirit so you can capture that feeling when you need to.

San Pedro Scoop – “About 5 yrs ago, I moved as a single woman to San Pedro from NYC. I want to show all sides of island life; give you the SanPedroScoop. The island is one of the most beautiful places on earth but every day I see something hard to Belize.”

See St. John – St. John Life – All about St John, Virgin Islands (USVI)

On-St. John – My favorite St. John blog. These guys make the best island videos and give the coolest information of beautiful STJ.

The Trinadad Charlies – Melissa, Emily, and Noelle or Charley M, E, or N. Three girls on a journey to find their own palm tree paradise. Join us as we embark on a wild ride!

Uncommon Caribbean – UC offers an engaging journey beyond the region’s well-trod sun, sand and sea attractions to reveal a unique side of the Caribbean seldom featured in traditional travel guides.

Webcam Grenada Blog – “Our website is not just another travel guide for Grenada. It is much much more. Grenada is our home, and on this site you will get to see some of the ‘real’ Grenada. Here you will see a selection of things we like to do, places we visit and events which we have gone to, which we have written about in our blog.”

Windtraveler – When two people, with the same life long dream of sailing around the world find each other, there’s only one thing to do… make it happen!

Zero To Cruising – “From total sailing newbies to live-aboard cruisers. How we made it happen!” Follow their island hopping adventures throughout the Caribbean. I got the chance to hang out with Mike and Rebecca on Grenada this year and hand a blast with them. Great people and a fun blog to follow.

A Short Christmas post from the islands

Posted in Island Enthusiasts, Island Time | Comments Off on A Short Christmas post from the islands

A  short Christmas post from the islands
12/25/2011
A quick note from the Caymans.  Today I enjoyed the best of both worlds..a white Christmas in paradise.  I have heard about this for years but never been here during Christmas week.  I should have come before now.  People cover their yards with white sand and you are forbidden to walk on it until Christmas day.  The effect is great a white Christmas in the islands.  Lights decorate the homes and rival the decorations up north but you can celebrate in tour swimming suit on the beach on the big day.

I will take the time tomorrow to fill you in on what has been going on in my life in this part of the world, but for now just know that life is wonderful and I would not change a thing about the way I have chosen to live it.

Merry Christmas from paradise.

William Fair Roberts…on island time in paradise.

Sent from my mobile…sometimes my spelling may be a little less than perfect.

 

Ho, Ho, Ho, and a Bottle of Rhum – Jimmy Buffett

Posted in Rum, Trop Rock Artists | Comments Off on Ho, Ho, Ho, and a Bottle of Rhum – Jimmy Buffett

Ho, Ho, Ho, and a Bottle of Rhum
Jimmy Buffett, Roger Guth, Pete Mayer & Russ Kunkel

Jimmy Buffett – Ho Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum

Santa’s stressed out as the holiday season draws near
He’s been doing the same job now going on two thousand years
He’s got pains in his brain and chimney scars cover his buns
He hates to admit it, but Xmas is more work than fun

He needs a vacation from bad decorations and snow
Mr. Claus has a has escape plans, a secret that only he knows
Beaches and palm trees appear night and day in his dreams
A break from his wife, half-frozen in life
The elves and that damn reindeer team

Ho, ho, ho and a bottle of rum
Santa’s run off to the Caribbean
He thinks about boat drinks and fun in the sun]
Ho, ho, ho and a bottle of rhum

Plastic creations and crass exploitations aren’t good
He wants to go back to simple toys made out of wood
Just for the weekend he’s like to be Peter Pan
Get out of his long johns and dance with a sword in the sand

(Chorus)
Ho, ho, ho and a bottle of rhum
Snata’s off to the Caribbean
Marimbas, calimbas, he’s playing steel drums
Ho, ho, ho and a bottle of rhum

Ho, ho, ho and a bottle of rhum
Santa’s off to the Caribbean
A week in the tropics and he’ll be alright
Sporting a tan as he rides out of sight

Merry Christmas to all and to all good night

Time For A Change – Jake and the Half Conched Band

Posted in Island Enthusiasts, Trop Rock Artists | Comments Off on Time For A Change – Jake and the Half Conched Band

If you’re stuck in a Midwest snowdrift or freezing your ass off in the gloomy North, then I’m sure you’re thinking it might be time for a change. 24 years was long enough for this pirate. I pointed my old Thunderbird South and set sail for sunny Florida. It was time for a change indeed.

Jake Thomas, a trop-rocker in the group Jaked and the Half Conched Band, sent me his CD, “Salt in My Veins” about a year ago. The album is full of songs about gin clear water, wet money, Mexican senoritas and escaping the grind. It’s a breath of fresh salty air and the relaxing lyrics will have you island dreaming in no time, especially if you’re zip code reads frozen tundra.

I’m friends with Jake on Facebook and happened to see him complaining that he was 7 hours from the closest beach. A problem no doubt. I suggested he join me in Key West in a couple weeks for a little “Island Research”. Seeing him pop up on Facebook made me revisit his “Salt In My Veins” album, and after soaking in a few tunes I knew I had to share one of the songs with you Castaways today. “Time For A Change” is the perfect song for this time of year and I hope it has you pondering a change in geography.

Catchy little song isn’t it? If you’re inspired to head South then maybe the Castaway Winter Beach Bash on St. Thomas is just the medicine you need. If you just want to chill to the sounds of Jake and the Half Conched Band then you can down load the song “Time For A Change” and their album “Salt In My Veins” below.

Did Buffett inspire this entire genre of Trop-Rock or did it exist before him?

A Thank You from Tall Paul

Posted in Trop Rock Artists | Comments Off on A Thank You from Tall Paul

I would like to take few minutes to thank everyone who comes out to the shows, purchases CDs and stuff, and generally supports what happens in Tallville!
I have been North, (Iowa) South, (Key West) East (Jersey) and West (well not too far West this year, but that will change in 2012) and MANY places in between and have had an amazing year. plus Kristie’s CD is out and doing well. it looks like there will be several duo tours for us and she will be involved in aspects of other events as well.
i feel extremely fortunate to be able to play with such amazing musicians throughout the year both in my bands and during the impromptu “ramajay” sessions that occur spontaneously on stage and off… thanks to all of you for making it so much fun
you can see on the schedule below that 2012 is already shaping up to be another big year, so pace yourself!
trips to panama, costa rica and a west coast tour plus several weeks in key west will keep things very interesting… not to mention festivals in florida, new jersey and iowa!

 

the should also be a “Hot Trio” DVD release in 2012… Kristie was our opening act!

a trailer can be viewed here:

Your hosts, Mark & Sharon Leverett welcome you to join us for great music, fun times and good friends!

JOHN FRIDAY the Tropical Balladeer, is a
singer/songwriter originally from Maryland, now living in
Florida. After a back-breaking (literally) Army career,
John settled in the Sunshine State where he pursues
his musical dreams every night in the locals pubs and
bars.
An eclectic set of interests led John through the gamut of
college majors, including biology; education;
engineering; mathematics; business (“I’d always made
fun of business majors, and suddenly I was one!”);
computer science; classics (the most useful part of a
classics degree is that you can say “Do you want fries
with that?” in Latin!); and finally, one that combined many
of John’s interests, History. It took a mere twenty years
to complete his baccalaureate, as little things like raising
children and going to war kept him busy. John’s love of
History is readily evident, as he will discuss historical
events at the drop of a fin-topped hat.
John got his first guitar when he was 13, after attempts
at learning the piano and the clarinet were less than
successful. For years, John was never far from that
guitar. He took it backpacking in the White Mountains of
New Hampshire; while working on a crabber in
Chesapeake Bay; even while skiing in Maine &
Colorado. He still has that guitar, although his collection
has grown somewhat over the years.
When it came time to “get a grown-up job,” John put
away childhood dreams and joined the Army. A series
of injuries led to a medical discharge after thirteen years
of service. Moving back to the Mid-Atlantic region, John
shortly realized that (1) he’d never really grown up and
never would, and (2) his childhood dreams of making
music were still powerful. Eventually, those dreams led
to a southward move. “Dreams…don’t leave childhood
without them.”
