Angelo Moore of Fishbone Goes to School

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off on Angelo Moore of Fishbone Goes to School

[Editors Note: The Pier’s own Jeff Pliskin, of Raised Fist Propaganda, is also an English teacher for a middle school in Brooklyn, NY. He also happens to be good friends with Angelo Moore of Fishbone – Read from Jeff what happened when he brought Angelo Moore to his class]:

Angelo In Class
The great Angelo Moore, Dr Madd Vibe himself, of Fishbone decided to stop by during my 8th grade English classes on Friday, April 17th to teach the youth about positivity. Angelo, being a proponent of love and all that involves unity, was quite excited to be in the Brooklyn, NY classroom.

I prepped Dr. Madd Vibe in a Brooklyn Reggae Dub Lounge the night before. We have been meeting once a month to finalize our first short film for Sundance and Tribeca film festivals, respectively.

“You know these kids are from Bed-Stuy (Bedford–Stuyvesant) Brooklyn, Angelo – they can be quite hyper,” I told him. He smiled with that patented grin, bobbed his head along to the King Tubby beat that played in the background and responded: “It’s not something I’m not used to, Pliskinite!”

Angelo looked psyched, almost as if it was his mission to show kids that energy can be channeled into a positive force. There was no reason to hate or hurt each other. From my understanding, watching his dealings with his band, I could feel a sense of urgency and contemplation. One thing we had in common was the desperation to be understood through our art. Our passion.

“We’re gonna do this Jeffro…” Angelo stood up from his seat next to the vinyl turntable booth. He fixed his stetson hat and stuck his chest out: “We are going to inspire these kids.”

Fast-forward to the next morning, and multiple cups of coffee later, Angelo Moore is pacing in my classroom, more hyper than the Brooklyn School kids that are anxiously awaiting to meet him. His saxophone lay in its open case in the front of the class. He is wearing a full body army-camouflage pajama suit with white converse sneakers and red laces. His classic stetson derby hat remain intact on the top of his shaved head. Punk rock.
I showed the kids every Fishbone video ever made the day before as a visual lesson. The kids liked the fact Angelo was eccentric.

As the first class entered, I warned Angelo that things could get really hyper. He started playing on the sax, and within moments, hypnotized 30 Brooklyn school children into a silent majority. They were enamored.

Then, the magic happened. Angelo Moore smoothly stepped on top of a desk and blurted out some epic riddims on his sax. The sounds permeated the hallways of the Brooklyn Middle School. My principal walked in with a few teachers. The sounds continued as the children slowly took out their cell phones to film this excellent slice of life.

Then, the fire drill alarm went off.

Angelo Moore is laughing the entire time as fellow teachers and my principal are yelling at kids to keep quiet. We walk through a residential neighborhood on the border of Bed-Stuy and Clinton Hill where Biggie Smalls grew up. The Fishbone front-man is excited beyond belief. The children sense it in him. Once again, his smile permeates as he carries his golden saxophone throughout the mean streets of Brooklyn. He walks directly behind the 8th graders in perfect line formation.

“Mr. Jeff, is he really your friend?” a student named Destiny asked Angelo. “Yes, Destiny, he is my friend. Now keep quiet – it’s a fire drill.”

I must have gained half a dozen points in street-cred that day from the students.

We walked the halls after the fire drill. Angelo wanted to check out the music class. Within moments, dude was playing drums. A student hopped up to the front and played bongos. The class was loving it. Angelo was in his element. So was I. The kids saw it too. Smiles all around. It was a great day for our school.
I gave the kids a copy of the Fishbone logo on white paper. Angelo signed autographs as he broke into spoken word. Once again, silence and respect for what was happening. These 6th and 7th graders had no idea who Fishbone was, but they did know there was someone of important significance standing in front of them. An artist who was showing off his craft with extreme confidence and passion.

Our last stop was Mr. Mack’s class, a fellow English teacher. He saw Fishbone and Red Hot Chili Peppers play in the mid-west during the ’90’s. When we walked into his class, his jaw dropped. Mr. Mack handed Angelo a spoken word poem, his favorite one of Angelo’s. And so the last chapter of the visit began.

Angelo Moore stood in the front of the classroom reciting the entire version of “Mack Truck” as students read along in unison. Full of energy and depth, he even walked over to a pair of girls who were talking and recited the last stanza of the poem in their ear. He commanded their respect. Epic.

“So now that I got a podium, now that I got a little stage – Say what you feel. Say it to the world. This is how I feel. My name is Angelo Moore, Dr. Madd Vibe, Fishbone Soldier #1. I’m from Los Angeles, California. And I like to love. (Whoo! – student in first row) I like love and I like loving everybody… And if you don’t love me back, you can kiss it! Straight up! There’s too much hate in the world today. Peace and Love everywhere and everybody.”
– Angelo Moore 4.17.15 Brooklyn, New York

2015 Key West Songwriter’s Festival

Posted in Trop Rock Happenings | Comments Off on 2015 Key West Songwriter’s Festival

                                     2015   KEY WEST SONGWRITER’S FEST!!!

(Listen To The Greatest Country while you read the Blog)

Key West Chris Rehm @ KW Songwriter's Festival photo KeyWestChrisRehmatSongwriters_zps788d6b48.jpg

The largest music honor has been bestowed on me once again and I will be in the 2015 Key West Songwriter’s Festival!

The Key West Songwriter’s Festival is the largest and most important musical event of the year in Key West, bar none.

For those not familiar with the Key West Songwriter’s Festival (KWSF), it is the largest songwriter festival in the United States and is put on by BMI Nashville, along with Key West’s Smokin’ Tuna’s Charlie Bauer and Dani Strampello Holliday. Everyone does a hell of a great job every year. I don’t know this year’s exact count, but in the past few years it’s been somewhere around 150 songwriters  You can imagine what a hand full it is getting everyone organized, for not only their music schedules, but also their lodging, transportation, and everything else that goes along with it. Hats off to them all!!!

It’s Much More Than Just a Songwriter’s Festival

As I mentioned, this is a BMI Nashville event. So keep in mind, these are the finest songwriters in the United States. Every year Nashville virtually moves to Key West for a few days to stretch it’s legs at the KWSF. We’re not only talking about songwriters either. In reality, this isn’t just a songwriter’s festival, per say.We’re talking publishers, producers, AR people, record company owners and execs, you name it. They’re all here.This is an event where everyone gets together to not only hear great music by the writers, but also to let their hair down a bit, yet at the same time, catch some new acts they may not have seen before. It’s not at all uncommon for them to  put a few business deals together. In short, the KWSF is a major event on so many levels!

So, as you can see this is not just any songwriter festival. Of the approximately 150 songwriters in the event, I think about a half dozen are Key West songwriters. The rest are from, or through Nashville.

I’m very fortunate in that I have been a Nashville published songwriter with the firm McClure and Trowbridge Publishing Nashville, for the last fifteen years. When I first got into the festival, it was through my publisher in Nashville, George McClure. He’s assisted in sending good vibes to the festival ever since on my behalf! Thanks George!

Since that first time, Key West promoters Dani Strampello Holliday and Charlie Bauer have also been batting for me as well! Thank you Dani and Charlie!

The last two KWSFs that I’ve been in, I’ve been paired up with my good friend, Nashville based Misty Loggins, for the showcase. When I found out my schedule this year, in the beginning of March, I was thrilled when I had a call from Misty telling me that we were again paired up! Fantastic! Not only that, but we’re paired up playing on Key West’s South Beach at the end of Duval St.!

South Beach was where I had my debut gig with the KWSF. As good as the other venues were that I’ve been at over the years, this was always my favorite! Playing on the beach, looking out to the  Florida Straits/Atlantic Ocean. Plus, it’s right at the Southernmost Cafe, so you can go inside and grab a bite to eat or,get yourself a libation at their walk up bar, right on the beach! They have a good selection of great beer there as well!

One thing about the KWSF however that is different from the other gigs that go on the entire rest of the year here in Key West, these are concerts, they are not bar gigs. At bar gigs people have the option to listen to the music, or chat with their friends. At the songwriters festival, these are concerts. The audience is here to listen to the songs, as they were composed, by the writers who wrote them. There’s no conversations. These are concerts. People are here to listen. As a performer, it’s something that we all love dong; playing for folks who are there to enjoy the songs we write.

The other day I went over to the KWSF’s website and saw that fellow local Howard Livingstone will be joining Misty and me on our set! Howard’s a great guy and there will be a lot of laughs and great music to be had, no doubt!

Misty, Howard, and I will be playing Saturday, May 9 from noon to 1 PM on South Beach, Key West. It’s the best location of all the events in the festival, in my opinion.

Stop by and catch our show!

Also, in the best of Key West traditions, 90% of all the shows are free (including ours!). Just walk in and enjoy!

If you are thinking of coming from out of town, book right away. It wouldn’t be the first time that every room in town is booked solid for the festival!

311 Adds The Green To Summer Tour

Posted in Reggae Roots Music | Comments Off on 311 Adds The Green To Summer Tour

311 is one of the longest running alt-rock bands touring today. Recently the band announced they will celebrate their 25th year with the several digital and vinyl re-releases, a special box set of rare and unreleased material, their own craft beer in partnership with the Rock Brothers and Tampa’s Cigar City, and a summer tour. Now the band has announced that accompanying them on their 2015 summer tour will be The Green.

After a handful of one-offs and fly-dates through out the spring and early summer, this July 311 has plans for their annual summer tour. Typically playing bigger amphitheaters over summer, on this trip the band has booked many of these larger venues, and for lucky fans in several cities, 311 has bookings at several smaller theaters as well. This year the run will span from July 2nd to August 2nd with 27 shows that will take the group from coast to coast.

The start of their summer tour will begin in Las Vegas, NV for a special 2 night-stand at the Mandalay Bay Beach over 4th of July weekend! 311 will play their self-titled blue album on July 4th with fireworks on both nights! From Vegas 311 heads east, and while there is still a few details about these shows yet to be announced, supporting 311 on 12 of their 27 shows this summer will be Hawaii’s smooth reggae outfit, The Green. Over the years 311 has built a reputation for always bringing excellent talent along with them on their tour, and this summer its The Green’s turn to take the trip. Also traveling with 311 this past February on the 311 Caribbean Cruise, The Green has learned how to play a 311 party. Known for their musicality and modern mix of reggae, their sound is sure make every fan on tour feel like they’re on an island.

A shorter summer tour than in the past, the group is making their rounds quickly in order to head back into the studio for their 12th studio album and follow up to 2014’s Sterolithic. Working again with Producer Scotch Ralston, the band’s volcaist/guitarist, Nick Hexem, explained to New Times when I first got into the writing mode [for the new record] I really wanted to have more reggae songs. Our last album had a lot of great rock on there and some kind of weird unclassifiable stuff, and I kind of felt like the reggae side that we love to play live was kind of underrepresented. So I was really focusing on that. Now I have a bunch of those songs and I’m kind of going back into some weird innovative rock that combines electronic styles with rock.

Hexum later went on to tell the blog Music Existence, I would like to see more ballads with clean and distortion guitars. I love the rockers, playing live. It’s interesting, if you look at iTunes, you’ll see certain songs that maybe aren’t as great live but they are better to listen to on an album. We just want a nice balanced approach, but I feel like I’ve written some good, chill songs. Right now I’m working on what might be one of the hardest, craziest song that I’ve written in a long time, continuing, I actually have a co-writing session with Chad (Sexton) tomorrow and we are going to get in there and work on some slamming stuff. We will be working before and definitely right after the summer tour. We’ll just get in there and really crank it out.

Look out for more details on the new record this fall, and be sure to check back for details on 311’s new projects including information on the release events for their upcoming amber ale, as well as news on other 311 themed life-style products.

Wet Week in Destin

Posted in Island Enthusiasts | Comments Off on Wet Week in Destin

It seemed to rain on and off all last week in Destin. Most of the time the rain was light but annoying. Sunday morning we did have some strong thunderstorms blow through but by the afternoon the sun was back out.

Last weekend there was a big Parrot Head party in Panama City Beach. “Rendezvous” draws over 500 Parrot Heads to the beach from all over the country. This year was the 10th annual and I have been to everyone of them. Wednesday our friends Barry and Cathy from Lake Charles, LA came to Destin on their way to Rendezvous. Sunshine Cindy and I met them at Margaritaville for drinks then we all walked down to the Boathouse to listen to CJ play some music and to get some food.

It was a great time hanging with them. We have not seen them since last year at this time. They are a lot of fun to be around. Thursday they headed to Panama City Beach for the party. I went over on Saturday for the day. Sunshine Cindy decided to stay home so Wayne rode over with me. It looked like it would rain all day as big storms were over the Gulf but all we got was a light shower a time or two. I was glad they were able to get all the music in as our friend Jim Asbell and his band the Tropiholics were playing in the afternoon. Jim and the band always puts on a fun show and they did this time too. Jim and the band are playing for us in Put in Bay for Phlocking this coming June. You can get registered here so you can say you partied with the band!

Sunday Sunshine Cindy and Julie rode back over to Panama City Beach to catch a show by Southern Drawl Band. It didn’t start till 7 pm and with work on Monday I decided not to go. I need my beauty sleep. They had a blast. The place was packed and the band did a great show as usual. I would have loved to go but they didn’t back home till almost 1 am. Mike Nash, the lead singer for Southern Drawl Band will also be performing in Put in Bay at Phlocking. Just another reason to get registered!

I stopped in at Landshark Pizza a couple times this week. Friday night I had wings and on Sunday while Sunshine Cindy was gone I stopped in for some pizza and to watch some hockey. Both the wings and pizza were excellent.

I never cease to get amazed at how buildings go up and get torn down in Destin. Tuesday morning on my way to work I noticed a big pile of rubble where a bank building used to be. It was a two story building across from the Palms condo. I heard there might be a new condo tower going up there. Geeze, that’s just what we need….another tower. I hope that news was wrong.

The construction on LuLu’s is progressing. They held a job fair last week to fill about 300 positions. I don’t know where the help will come from as just about every store and restaurant in town has help wanted signs out. We are looking forward to LuLu’s opening. We enjoy her Gulf Shores location and we know the Destin place will be just as good. It should open sometime in the summer.

This weekend is a unique event for Destin. It’s called Bulls at the Beach and is a professional bull riding event held right on the beach. This should be interesting. I am not sure if we will go but it does seem like a unique event. It will be at the Boardwalk on the Island.

Okay, have a great week. See ya Monday!

The Pier Album Rating:

Release Date: April 18th, 2015
Official Website: Black Bottom Lighters Website

Artist Background:
Black Bottom Lighters is a self-described Desert Reggae group of six individuals that call Glendale, Arizona, their home. This particular musical journey started in 2010, and has since seen quite a level of success that many bands should envy and strive for. The band is on their Phoenix, Arizona’s KWSS station on regular rotation, and they have also beat out 1200 other bands in order to participate in Jacksonville, Florida’s “The Big Ticket Music Festival.” Having released their first EP in 2012, fans have since then been clamoring for new material. The day has finally come, and the band has just released their first full-length album, just in time for summer.

Album Review:
I have to admit, I thought I was going to have trouble reviewing this album since the first fifteen seconds of the album were silent. Whether this was intentional or not, it definitely got my attention. The intro catches the attention of the listener by introducing them to the sounds of the band. Almost instantly, the energy this band has could be felt reverberating my eardrums with insane guitar solos and high-energy breakdowns, a good start.

“Rockin’ and Rollin’” is the band’s first actual song on the album. The music is on point, and the guitar solos unquestionably deserve praise. The listener will discover that there’s not just one vocalist doing all the songs, but rather, the vocal duties are shared between Ryan ‘Stilly,’ and ‘Taide.’ Of those two, the vocal styles differ in a way that the songs are interesting to listen to, since you never know when another vocalist is going to take over. The changes between the two are done pretty effectively and the songs flow well.

Jose on the bass-guitar can be heard doing some cool stuff on both “Carousel,” and “Changes.” The best song of these two, and of the album, however, is undeniably “Changes,” though. The flow of this song combines hip-hop verses with rock choruses and a guitar-driven bridge. This tune’s buildup after the bridge has the potential to become a crowd-favorite. The track is awesome from start to finish.

One thing that got my attention was the plethora of references to marijuana. While it’s cool for a reggae band to sing about weed, to mention it in almost every song seemed like overkill. With a musical powerhouse of such magnitude, this band should attempt to explore other lyrical opportunities, like other social issues, which are just as important. A diversification of lyric themes within an album is essential in order to keep the audience engaged and interested. The other common theme was relationships, which was sure to get people’s attention. But aside from these two, what message is the band trying to convey to their fans? From listening to this album, one of the messages that will stand out is the fact that the band likes to smoke weed. Again, this is all right, if that’s what the band is trying to achieve.

Other songs that stood out for me were “Astronauts,” “How Good,” and “I’m Still Here,” all of which deliver a strong sense of musical expertise that was pleasant to listen to. “Can’t Take Me,” earns an honorable mention for its ska influences that are bound to get crowds riled up at live shows. The ability to blend ska and rock influences, not to be confused with the ska/rock genre we are so familiar with, is certainly one of the highlights of this album. The band can blend genres into their songs with ease and the way they do it shows the band has talent.

Altogether, since this is the band’s first full-length album, it definitely deserves praise for its quality. Even the production of the album was flawless, which is usually a rarity. It’s a great album and a strong start for a band that is going places.

One of our more enjoyable things to host at an event is the Artist Meet and Greets. There’s something special about being able to meet the souls behind the music that may have changed your life.

Norris will do the rest in making sure you have high quality pictures to remember the experience by. We’ll grab your email and send you a link to download your photos. This is no extra charge to your admission, this is not a VIP pass, you just have to wait patiently in line and be courteous to those behind you so they have a chance to meet and greet before the time allows.

Buffett performs at Navy SEAL Evening of Tribute

Posted in Jimmy Buffett News | Comments Off on Buffett performs at Navy SEAL Evening of Tribute

From the Palm Beach Post: “Evening with Jimmy Buffett, Navy SEALs raises more than $1M

The biennial Navy SEAL Evening of Tribute started with a literal bang at its dinner dance, which took place March 30 at The Mar-a-Lago Club.

Rebecca Williams was chairwoman for the evening, which, after the SEAL drop, moved to the ballroom where Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally performed a moving God Bless America before they, too, slipped off unseen into the night.

More than 650 people attended the event, which raised more than $1 million for the Navy SEAL Foundation and for the Navy SEAL Museum, Trident House and Memorial.
