  • Live Music Review - ROCKET at the Troubadour
    band as a whole possesses instrumental qualities that recall The Ramones and Stone Temple Pilots Performance ROCKET got to cross performing at The Troubadour off their bucket list with a night of rockin and rollin and energetic theatrics from front woman Barreto The newly formed yet seasoned quartet certainly showcased their years of musical experience with calculated instrumentals and polished vocals but they also wanted to make the point that they do what they do for the sake of their love for performing Completely at home on stage Barreto emitted an inviting attitude introducing every song treating the crowd to a glimpse into what exactly inspired what they were about to hear The band s high powered and animated set clearly intrigued those who were there to see the acts before and after ROCKET a great indicator of their music s ability to appeal to young and old Summary ROCKET is a lively blend of powerful female fronted rock with a stage presence that oozes passion an absolute treat for those looking to discover amazing local music that embodies the Los Angeles music scene in the most authentic way possible The band has already supported well known bands like Bow Wow Wow and Puddle Of Mudd and has garnered airplay on radio stations across the U S They ve also been acknowledged by numerous L A based publications as a rock band to keep our eyes on this year The Players Janelle Barreto vocals Eric Wibbelsmann guitar Bill Luna bass Paul DePatie drums Photo By Mathias Fau Venue The Troubadour City West Hollywood CA Contact thebandrocket yahoo com Web thebandrocket com Looking to get your music reviewed Click HERE Tags rocket the band rocket Previous Story New Music Gear Review Casio MZ Series Workstations Next Story Summerfest Announces Initial Lineup

  • Live Review: The Royal Blackbirds at O' Mara's Irish Pub in Detroit, MI - Music Connection Magazine
    a variety of material and moods Her guitar playing is equally adept She s able to bend the softest note or twist it into next week Her rhythm work is rock solid with ringing chords that dovetail nicely into Burck s muscular and sinewy bass lines Gadette plays flashy when the music dictates but is above all a seamless pocket player Performance The near capacity crowd was primed to party and The Royal Blackbirds delivered on all fronts From the very first tune Saad began a hand clapping chorus and got the audience involved From there the band had the patrons in the palm of their hand and brought them along for a spirited 10 song ride Burck and Gadette laid down a nice blend of dirty funk and a strong backbeat that gave ample room for Saad to step out on leads and moderate space where needed Their collective balance of chaos and control was most impressive This band knew how to work an audience And the room soaked up every minute of it Summary A great live act The Royal Blackbirds don t rely on gimmicks or gadgets to get their message across It is Motown soul mixed with gritty rock and downhome blues that will knock it out of the park every time This is a band with a unique way of meshing rare covers and classic rockers with original tunes for a blend that plays organic and real They are a ton of fun The Players Rebecca Saad guitar vocals Dennis Burck bass backup vocals Jeanette Nettie Gadette drums Photo By Eric A Harabadian Venue O Mara s Irish Pub City Detroit MI Contact tinogrossdetroit gmail com Web facebook com royalblackbirds Looking to get your music reviewed Click HERE Tags the royal blackbirds Previous Story Book

  • Live Review: Mad Revival at The Mint in Los Angeles, CA - Music Connection Magazine
    to coronate their new song Ohhh Lord with a funky beat and the dynamics and breakdown are strong here The crowning glory of the set though is Need The Relief where Lucarelli and Littell work well together to shift between time signatures Performance The set starts with the muddy blues of The Revival which has a Black Crowes experimental feel Nic struggles with his mic at the top of the set but powers through and takes the time to address the issue entirely before they move on to the next number Natalie s vocals are low in the mix but she makes up for it with her animated personality Nic gets plenty of interaction from his audience on The Every Day He also amiably handles some hecklers not allowing this to dampen the spirit of the show On Hardworking Man Natalie also puts the audience to the test shouting Put your f king hands in the air Summary At points the group feels too restrained in regards to the length of the solos which are mostly short and sweet This keeps the band tight for sure However on songs like Hardworking Man and Ohhh Lord while the primary riff is a good anchor the songs beg for a hot solo to amp up the energy of the crowd that much more The group may want to experiment with this aspect depending on the energy they are feeling from their respective audience and time limitations of their set The Players Nic Capelle vocals guitar Natalie Capelle vocals flute Macy Lucarelli drummer Matt Littell bass Anthony Marks keyboard guitar Photo by Deb Littell Venue The Mint City Los Angeles CA Contact scott oddsonagency com Web madrevival com Looking to get your music reviewed Click HERE Tags mad revival Previous Story Dubset Delivers

  • Live Review: Dezign Flaw at Cafè NELA in Los Angeles, CA - Music Connection Magazine
    Avilez play well off each other Both are seasoned guitar players who push the envelope with tasteful enthusiasm Avilez brings more of the psychedelia to the group with great tones and soothing leads while Wiser lays down perfect power chords that fill the room with respectable auditory sensations and lets Avilez s guitar cut through like a hot knife through butter The vocals however on all instances are weak It seems all the hard work has gone into writing the music but the vocals are left behind Even the backing vocals need a lot of work Performance Despite the group s shortcomings as singers the overall performance was good Dezign Flaw are confident in their abilities and it shows They have fun grooving to their own tunes as well they should Wiser laid on the floor at one point playing guitar in an amusing fit that brought smiles to the audience and made them run for their cameras while Whitten was dancing and grooving to the bass lines that intertwined with the thumping drums Summary Dezign Flaw are overall a tight band of musicians They need to work a little bit harder especially focusing on their vocals to get their act to that next level but it s well within reach The Players James Wiser guitar lead vocals Jose Avilez lead guitar keyboards backing vo cals Bill Larstead drums Mark Whitten bass Review by Pierce Brochetti Photo By Sidney Higgins Venue Cafè NELA City Los Angeles CA Contact grnhsemark gmail com Web facebook com DezignFlawMusic2 Looking to get your music reviewed Click HERE Tags dezign flaw Previous Story Music Choice and P ATD Music Video Challenge Next Story Waves Audio Hosting Hands On Workshop for Live 0 Shares Music Connection Published since 1977 Music Connection magazine is a monthly music
