Real Time

Deanna Bogart plays rollicking piano, soulful saxophone, and is known for her firecracker live performances. After getting her start in Western Swing and R&B outfits, she started fronting her own tight ensemble over fifteen years ago (her first album, Out To Get You, was released on Blind Pig in 1990).
 
Adding elements of contemporary blues, country and Nora Jones-like jazz to her repertoire, Bogart has created a unique fusion of musical styles. On her new release, Real Time, Bogart's vocals and songwriting are as full of vitality as her playing - savvy sensuous, and deep.

DR, DUKE TUMATOE

You've Got The Problem!

Dr. Duke Tumatoe's CD, You've Got The Problem!, marks the return of another artist to the Pig Pen. Dr. Duke has been filling blues-rock prescriptions live since his early days in South Side Chicago playing with Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, and Buddy Guy, and later with the popular rock group REO Speedwagon.

He released a pair of LPs on Blind Pig in the early 80's and later recorded an album for Warner Brothers produced by John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater. The guitarist/songwriter built a large following and reputation in the Midwest based on his irreverent, wacky, and occasionally raunchy lyrics and novelty tunes.

Nowadays Dr. Duke is practicing his brand of humor with his weekly appearances on the nationally syndicated "Bob & Tom" radio show, as well as in live performances with his band, The Power Trio. You've Got The Problem! is Dr. Duke at his zany best, skillfully mixing humorous songs with straight ahead power rockers.

Eric Clapton Suffers Hearing Loss From Years Of Loud Performances

Eric ClaptonEric Clapton is going deaf - because of his own rock concerts. The legendary guitarist has revealed he suffers from mild tinnitus, ringing in the ears, and is convinced his excessively loud performances with Cream back in the 60s are to blame.

He told Daily Express newspaper: "My hearing isn't ruined, but if I stop and listen I've got whistling all the time which I suppose is a mild tinnitus. I probably had two 100-watt stacks at the height of things and I would turn one on for guitar solos. It was just mad!"

Clapton isn't the only 60s musician losing his hearing. The Who frontman Roger Daltrey recently revealed years of rocking stadiums around the world has taken its toll on his ears - and forced him to swap raucous riffs for classical music.

He said at the time: "If I'm playing any music at home these days it's probably classical, mainly because I haven't got much hearing left. What I have got left, I want to keep."


AN OPEN LETTER FROM KENNY NEAL

 From: "Kenny Neal"
 Subject: Letter to Friends, Family and Fans
 Date: Wed, 06 Sep 2006

 Dear Friends, Family and Fans,

Through the years I have entertained you, spent time with you, gotten to know many of you, and can call many of you my friend.  I enjoy making music for you more than you will ever know.  And you have shown your appreciation for my efforts in so many ways.  I am and will always be grateful for your support, your enjoyment and your friendship.

Now I must take this opportunity to share something personal with you.  A few months ago, during a routine physical, I was told by my doctor that I have an illness that required extensive treatment and plenty of rest.  The doctor said that the treatment would take 48 weeks.  However, they said I could finish out the summer schedule of festivals and club dates before I began the treatment.  That was very important to me, as I wanted to see all of you before I started.  Due to the extensiveness of the treatment, I must take a year off from performing.  This in no way diminishes my love of the blues, nor does it mean that I won't be involved with all of you. You see, I am sending out my band, including the addition of my son, Kenny Jr., daughter, Syreeta and nephew, Tyree to carry on the Kenny Neal tradition.  They will be my emissaries.  They will keep you posted as to my progress.  I know your love and support for me will carry over to them.  I am still recording music at home, finishing up my Christmas CD as you read this.

The Kenny Neal Band that will be representing me, looks forward to bringing you great "blues" joy in the future.  There will be many surprise guests sitting in with them so be sure to continue checking the website calendar.  We will all keep you informed and I welcome your letters and your prayers.  Thank you for always being there for me.  God Bless and Good Blues To You.  You can write me at the address below or you can email me at boogamusic@hotmail.com, I prefer a written letter since I'll have alot of time to read.

 All The Best,
 Kenny Neal

RECORD LABEL NEWS:

Record label: 'We'll pay speeding fines'
Instrumental rock number getting American fans a bit reved up

A small independent record label has told fans of it's latest CD it will pay their speeding fines, issuing a cheeky press release claiming responsibility for getting drivers 'into the driving groove'.

Morusa Records claim to have paid several fines by drivers who had contacted the label saying the track "Let's Drive", by singer/songwriter
Plissken, has so much 'driving' energy they couldn't help but exceed the speed limit.

"The consensus is the song puts you so deeply into the driving groove that the speed limit becomes irrelevant," claims Morusa, before releasing statements from the afflicted fans.

"It's a great song, but you get into this zone and you begin to speed without realizing it," says Connie Mendez, one of the recipients of a speeding ticket in California, while car expert Barry Chadwick adds "Music affects the way you drive and feel about your car, and this song will actually make you enjoy traffic!" says Chadwick.

"We've received complaints from drivers in eleven states," says Adrian Martinez, president of Morusa Records, the label that released the CD a year ago. "We have agreed to pay for some of the fines as a courtesy."

Morusa are asking people who have bought the track, and received a speeding fine, to register themselves on the website. "Have you gotten a speeding ticket because of our song?" as they try to keep track of how many people are being pulled over because of "Let's Drive."

The slogan "Get on that open road and put the pedal to the metal!" on the CD's cover mount probably doesn't help.


MUSIC VIDEOS MAY BE PULLED FROM

YouTube & MySpace

 

 

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Universal Music Group, the world's biggest record company, is stepping up pressure against popular online sites YouTube and MySpace, accusing them of infringing the copyrights of its artists' music videos.

Universal chief executive Doug Morris described video site YouTube and News Corp.'s social networking site MySpace as "copyright infringers".

"The poster child for (user-generated media) sites is MySpace and YouTube," said Morris "We believe these new businesses are copyright infringers and owe us tens of millions of dollars."

He added, "How we deal with these companies will be revealed shortly."

"This could be the first salvo from a content player against business models based on user-generated content, much of which relies on copyrighted material."

 The runaway success of the free-to-view online video sites has raised the question of whether rights holders such as record companies and movie companies should be compensated, even if the clips are uploaded by the users.

To date, YouTube has said it will take down any copyrighted material illegally posted on the site once it has been alerted by the rights holder.

Record companies are keen to avoid repeating the mistake they believe they made when Viacom Inc.'s MTV was set up 25 years ago -- allowing their artists' music to be aired for free.

Morris in his remarks to investors on Tuesday said MTV "built a multibillion-dollar company on our (music) ... for virtually nothing. We learned a hard lesson."

BLUES ARTISTS ON THE RISE

 The Blues Festival E-Guide and SonicBids are proud to introduce you to our next "Blues Artist on the Rise".

Ladies and Gentlemen....meet Roxy Perry!

Roxy Perry fronts an amazing band of well seasoned musicians with powerful vocals and harmonica playing.  Her high energy repertoire consists of original songs from her three albums as well as original renditions of classic cover blues, swing, R&B, and jazz. 

"My gigs are not for wallflowers or the faint-hearted. We have huge fun" -- Roxy Perry

A child prodigy, Roxy started out fronting swing bands at the famous Glen Island Casino in New Rochelle, New York and performed her first major concert at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California at age 9.  In her early teens, she began fronting her own bands.  By her late teens, she was working six nights a week with her 10-piece soul band at the Peppermint Lounge on 45th Street and Times Square in New York City.  It was there that she was discovered and did her first studio recording as a back-up vocalist.  This led to her going on tour for four years with the pop-rock band, Dawn, representing their hits of the time.  The band headlined concert tours with Kenny Rogers, The Carpenters, Rare Earth, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Iron Butterfly, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Mike Nesmith, Mark Lindsay and many others.  In the ‘80’s an EP was released on Personal Records, produced by Richie Cordell, which was high on the Billboard charts for two months. 

Roxy launched her blues career in the late ‘80’s, when she quickly became known for her exciting live performances at clubs, concert halls and festivals throughout the U.S. and abroad and won her reputation as “the real deal” through her riveting live performances and highly acclaimed CDs in blues and jazz circles worldwide.

In recent years Roxy has appeared on the concert bill with Rod Piazza, Shamekia Copeland, Leon Russell, Marcia Ball, John Mayall, Saphire, Hubert Sumlin, Gatemouth Brown, Koko Taylor and a host of others.

As a recording artist, Roxy has performed, produced and written the material for three highly acclaimed CDs that have been added to classic female Blues artist lists on radio stations throughout the world. They are titled HI HEEL BLUES (Monad Records), ROXY PERRY, NEW YORK BLUES QUEEN (BluePerry Hill Records), and her most recent CD, BACK IN BLUESVILLE (BluePerry Hill Records).  Many of her original songs appear on a number of compilation blues CDs.  Her unique version of HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN appeared on the compilation album, PUBLIC DOMAIN (Purchase Records), which was nominated for a Grammy award.

Roxy is also featured on a long list of Blues albums as both backup and featured vocalist.  Blues legend Roscoe Gordon chose Roxy to sing three part harmonies on his entire last release that aired worldwide.

And, the media loves her!  The syndicated radio program, PORTRAITS IN BLUE, which profiles Blues legends and legends in the making, produced an hour-long feature on Roxy Perry. This historic documentary airs regularly on NPR stations.  Her music continues to be heard regularly on MUSIC CHOICE, DIRECT TV, hundreds of radio stations, web and podcasts worldwide.  Recent highlights for her current album, ROXY PERRY, BACK IN BLUESVILLE include features on the legendary KING BISCUIT HOUR and was chosen as the Bluesbreaker of the Week on the HOUSE OF BLUES RADIO SHOW hosted by Elwood Blues.

Earlier this year a panel of industry judges selected BACK IN BLUESVILLE as the  "Best Self-Produced CD" for 2005.

Currently the title song BACK IN BLUESVILLE is one of 20 nominees competing for the 2006 "Just Plain Folks 2006 Song of the Year."

Roxy and her band are currently back in the studio working on their next release and are looking forward to 2007 with plans for performing at blues festivals around the country.

ON THE BLUE HIGHWAY WITH

 TOM AND CHERYL

We Got Busy--So much has happened this last week we only have room for the highlights.  

We hit Memphis and stopped by the Blues Foundation to swap stories with Joe and say hello to Jay and Percy. Then it was a walk across the street to The Cotton Museum. We did the self tour and found a good section on Blues (we understand the Blues Foundation vastly contributed to the display).

The following day we headed down the Blues Highway “61”, visited famous Blues gravesites and the remains of juke joints, and took side trips to small towns like Robinsonville and Lula -- famous for their blues history.  

Tom and I found our way over to the Tunica Museum which has a small Blues section and a lot of information on the Civil Rights of the 60’s. While checking out the Museum we happened to run into Civil Rights leader, Calvin Norwood and had a great conversation with him. What a treat!  

We made it over to Helena, Arkansas and visited Rosie Swan at the Sonny Boys Blues Society headquarters and toured the Delta Blues Museum. This is a museum rich in Mississippi Blues history and a must stop on any blues lovers visit. 

The Gulf Coast Blues Festival Board (holding a Blues Festival Guide)

Then it was down to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Blues Festival, Pascagoula, MS. This is put on by the Mississippi Gulf Coast Blues Commission. We arrived two days early to attend the Children’s Musical Instrument contest, which is presented in conjunction with the festival. Both Tom and I are very interested in music programs for youngsters, so this was a highlight for our trip. We also went to the pre-fest party but were tired and left before headliner O.B. Buchanan really got going. 

Devoted fans of O.B. Buchanan hoping to become part of the show

The following day one of the ladies said to us, “We thought he was going to drop his pants and all he did was flick his tongue”. We soon found out what she meant the next day at the festival. Entertainment is quite provocative along the Gulf Coast, it would seem.  O.B. came out, did a whole lot of gyrating, bumping and grinding.  The women were screaming, swooning, and crowding closer to the stage. Next, O.B. called some of the ladies dancing in the audience up on stage. One shapely lady with tight fitting pants was lifted in the air, where she split her legs open while O.B. kissed her “na-na.” The crowd went nuts! He then grabbed his ‘na-nas” and teased some more. Enough teasing, he said, and this time he did drop his pants before he left the stage!!! Yikes! We guess you could say he did more than ‘flick his tongue.’  

Visiting the Mississippi Gulf was wonderful, and we were treated with warm and open arms.  Partying with Katrina survivors, who have faced – and overcome -- such adversity and who still maintain such a positive attitude, will stay with us for a lifetime. Alas, it’s time to go, so we again say goodbye to another new ‘family’ and head north. 

Next stop – Mississippi’s capital city of Jackson.  If you’re interested in hearing about lunch with Bobby Rush and a private lesson in the Bentonia-style Blues from Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, tune in for next week’s update.   

Back on the Blues trail,

--  Cheryl and Tom
