Keyboards – The Motet, Juno What?!
Garrett began studying jazz on upright bass and bass
guitar starting at a young age. He gained experience
coming up in the renowned music program of Hall High
School, and the local Hartford, CT jazz scene.
In 1996, Garrett was selected to join the National
Grammy In The Schools Jazz Program, an honor awarded
to only 40 people.

From 1996 – 1999 Garrett attended the New England
Conservatory in Boston where he studied with jazz
greats: Cecil McBee, Bob Moses, and Danilo Perez and
graduated with a Jazz Performance Diploma.
In addition, Garrett was selected for the prestigious
Thelonious Monk School: Jazz at Aspen summer program
in 1997.

Shortly after arriving in Boston Garrett formed the
Miracle Orchestra with fellow music school peers. For
5 years the Miracle Orchestra toured the country
gaining a devoted national fan base, while also
maintaining a solid local following, earning them
accolades such as Boston Magazines Best of Boston
"Best Local Jazz Group". The Miracle Orchestra sold
out numerous shows at their local haunt The House of
Blues in Boston as well as the legendary Wetlands in
New York City. The Miracle Orchestra released two
studio albums: "Coalescence" and "Forks Bends &
Spoons", and a live album: "Live Vol. 1".

Garrett was a founding member of the award-winning
jazz ensemble Dead Cat Bounce led by Matthew Steckler,
who were voted Boston's Best Local Jazz Act at the
2002 Boston Music Awards, and were winner of Boston
Phoenix Best Music Poll 2001 and 2002 also in the
category of Best Local Jazz Act. Garrett performed
with Dead Cat Bounce between 1996 and 2002 and
released two albums with them: "Lucky By Association"
and "Legends of the Nar" (Chonsky).

Between '99 and '01 Garrett performed with Bob Moses'
Mozamba, along with Sam Kininger and Neil Evans
(Soulive) and (DJ) Mr. Rouke. Mozamba performed at
several festivals including an opening set at Phish's
Oswego festival.

In 2002 Garrett joined the Boulder, CO based group The
Motet and toured the country playing over 250 shows
and festivals per year. In 2006 The Motet played in
front of an estimated 10,000 people at Bonnaroo and
shortly there after Bass Player Magazine wrote a
feature profile about Garrett in October, 2006. In
2007 the Motet performed one special gig with
Christian McBride where Garrett and Christian traded
bass lines and solos throughout the night, a career
highlight. Garrett has released two albums with the
Motet: "Music for Life" and "Instrumental Dissent".

In 2006, Garrett had the great honor of subbing for
Kai Eckhardt in his band Garaj Mahal alongside Fareed
Haque, Eric Levy, and Alan Hertz.

After performing several times with keyboard wizard
Kyle Hollingsworth (String Cheese Incident), he asked
Garrett in 2007 to join a new project called Soleside
featuring Speech (Arrested Developement), DJ Logic,
and Chief Excel (Blackalicious).

Since the Fall of 2007 Garrett has been touring the
States, Europe and Japan with Koch recording artist
Dwele.

Garrett has also been featured with: Carl Thomas,
Loulou (Thievery Corporation), Marcus Eaton, Goodbye
Champion, magicgravy, Henry Butler, Russel Batiste
(The Funky Meters), Steve Perkins (Jane's Addiction),
Robert Walter, and Papa Mali.
Dan Schwindt is a freelance guitarist based out of Denver, Colorado. He has been working as a professional performer and educator for the past ten years primarily in Colorado's Front Range. Working mainly as a sideman, Dan has had the opportunity to play in a wide variety of ensembles and genres of music. Some recent highlights have included playing with Karl Denson (Tiny Universe), Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), Jeff Coffin (Dave Mathews Band), George Porter (The Meters), DJ Logic, Zach Gill (Jack Johnson) Speech (Arrested Development), Eric Marienthal, Karrin Allyson, Peter Eldridge, Eric Krasno (Soulive) and Michael Brecker.

While in Denver, Dan is a regular member of the Kyle Hollingsworth Band (of String Cheese Incident), The Motet, Supercollider, Rekha Ohal trio and the Jonny Mogambo Band. Dan also regularly works with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) as an orchestra-pit musician, where he recently was contracted for Molly Ringwald's "Sweet Charity", Oprah Winfrey's "The Color Purple" and Dolly Parton's "9-5".

Dan grew up in Seattle, Washington, where he learned to hide from the rain, compile an awesome collection of flannel T-shirts, and build igloos in the snow. The son of an opera singer and a research scientist, Dan grew fond of music and creativity at a young age. He was in advanced ceramics in the 8th grade and got an A-.

Dan first started playing guitar at age 12, learning as many Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath tunes as possible. This continued to progress into the early 90s and the heyday of Seattle grunge scene. After transcribing Nirvana's "Nevermind" album in its entirety along with Pearl Jam's "Ten" during freshman year of high school, Dan knew all he ever needed to know about the guitar and retired.

After a lengthy 3-month hiatus Dan's first teacher and musical mentor, David O'Suna, gave him a copy of "Wes Montgomery Plays the Blues" and John Coltrane's "Giant Steps". Dan's life now took a turn for the better as he realized he would be embarking on a life long journey of musical exploration and improvisation.

After graduating from Shorecrest High School in 1995 Dan earned a scholarship to the University of North Texas's College of Music. While in college he was able to study and play with notable musicians such as Fred Hamilton, Dan Hearle, Ed Soph, Mike Stern, Joe Diorio, Ron Eschete, Wayne Krantz, Dave Liebman and many others. At UNT Dan received a world-class education in jazz and classical performance, composition, arranging, and barbecue.

Dan's passion for music has led him to tour all over the country playing primarily with jazz, blues, rock, funk, singer songwriters, and jam bands. His passion for music is equally paired with his enthusiasm for nature and the outdoors, which is why he currently lives at the edge of the Rocky Mountains in Denver, CO.

Mike + Ruthy with special guests Winterpills

August 31st, 2013

Mike + Ruthy with special guests Winterpills
Event on 2013-10-05 19:30:00

Common Ground @ South Church

343 Broadway, Dobbs Ferry NY

presentsMike + Ruthywith special guests Winterpills

“Some of the best songwriting of their generation.” – LA Weekly, on Mike + Ruthy

“I don’t know why Winterpills aren’t one of the most cherished pop bands in the world: Their songs are dazzling, and their albums have a coherence that’s rare.”
– Jonathan Lethem, Rolling Stone

After thousands of concerts across tens-of-thousands of miles, Ruth Ungar & Mike Merenda have emerged as one of acoustic America’s most revered musical duos. As story-tellers, as singers, as poets and as parents (they tour with their two small children), Mike + Ruthy are heralds of an American cultural awakening, one that values honesty and togetherness, one that prefers grit to glitz and one that – in the face of an information super-highway – revels in the old-fashioned telling of a story. Described as “rich, vintage Americana” by Time Out NY, Mike + Ruthy’s 2012 Woody Guthrie collaboration “My New York City” is being hailed as one of the most gorgeous pieces ever to have come out of the archive.

Starting with their self-titled debut in 2005, Winterpills have built a vibrant career with their exquisite chamber-pop songs that The Washington Post called “densely packed but hugely evocative, tiny bombs of feeling and meaning… fiendishly melodic", attracting fans from their native New England to the Netherlands and beyond. They may be one of the most exciting bands to emerge from the vibrant Northampton, Massachusetts music scene in recent years, adding another chapter to the world of ethereal indie-pop. They play haunting, delicate, dynamic, room-hushingly beautiful music with shimmering melodies and aching lyrics. Fronted by singers Philip Price and Flora Reed, they harmonize closely, often and gorgeously.

DJ Vadim w/ Akira and Special Guests

December 26th, 2012

DJ Vadim w/ Akira and Special Guests
Event on 2013-02-07 21:00:00

DJ Vadim

Hardest working man in show business? Trooper? Tireless? However you want to put it, be sure of one thing, when DJ Vadim first heard the phrase "Don't sleep" he obviously took it literally. Over the last decade few people can have put so much time and energy into the culture they love. Founder of Jazz Fudge in early 1995, A&R, producer, DJ, promoter, record collector, radio presenter, occasional painter, writer, and in-house producer/dj and cohort of Latin Grammy nominees, Spanish hip hop super group 7 Notas 7 Colorez, Vadim has certainly been keeping himself busy. And that's before we even mention his DJing itself which has seen him perform in virtually every country in Europe(east and west), all over North America, Australia, New Zealand. Japan, Israel, Turkey, South America and South East Asia in just the last year. He has also performed with the likes of DJ Krush, Company Flow, The Roots, Pharcyde, Public Enemy, Beat Junkies, Dilated Peoples, Kraftwerk, Ed Rush, Morcheeba and Paul Weller as well as at events like Glastonbury and the Moscow Street Ball festival (to over 40,000 people!). To describe the man as an internationalist almost seems to sell him short.

Akira

Akira is a group created by producers and musicians, Adam Boulesbaa and Adam Clark while they both attended the University of Denver. Akira is a unique blend of hip/hop and drum and bass/dubstep that contains and exemplifies an atmospheric feel. Separately Adam Clark and Adam Boulesbaa have different backgrounds and styles that greatly compliment each other. Adam Boulesbaa is a Hip Hop producer from the Washington DC area who moved out to Colorado last year. Out in DC he has played at a number of shows and beat battles. In addition to this, his music has been featured on notable hip hop sites such as 2dopeboyz and NahRight. Stylistically, a lot of Adam Boulesbaa’s music is reminiscent of 90's golden era hip/hop but it also carries many influences from bands like M83 and ThreeSixMafia. As far as producing goes, Adam has been fortunate enough to work with a number of underground acts including (Talib Kweli, Tayyib Ali, GLC , and Nickelus F). Adam Clark is a drum and bass/dubstep producer out of Minneapolis, Minnesota who migrated to Denver a year ago also, where he met Adam Boulesbaa. His music contains a unique blend of his classical piano background and guitar background. A symphony like atmospheric sound is much of what Adam’s electronic production includes, along with the grit of the mid 2000's dubstep and drum and bass. In Minnesota, Adam Clark has played many acoustic live shows in local venues. Along with playing piano and guitar, he plays a vast amount of other instruments and also sings.

Talkdemonic with special guests Extra Classic and Jel

Talkdemonic with special guests Extra Classic and Jel
Event on 2012-11-10 21:00:00

tickets

Advance tickets available at:
http://www.ticketweb.com/snl/E ventListings.action?orgId=25521
or at The Crepe Place

9pm showtime

Talkdemonic:
One night, shortly after Kevin O’Connor moved to Portland, OR in 2002, the now 28-year-old musician was hanging out at a local club when he heard it. A voice uttering a single word: Talkdemonic. It’s a name that O’Connor says fit perfectly with the hip-hop and electronic influenced project he had just started.

Like nothing the Pacific Northwest has seen before, Talkdemonic melds the primal, the classical and the modern to create songs that are as sweeping in scope as they are shattering in intensity. The band calls it folktronic hop and, for the last year, it has helped Talkdemonic create a fanbase in the Pacific Northwest that grows with each performance, the tales of the band’s ability to capture the most human emotions with only drums, viola, a laptop and no vocals attracting curious onlookers that are soon turned into devout fans. Started as a vehicle for the music of Kevin O’Connor soon after the soft-spoken musician moved from the college town of Pullman, Washington to Portland in
2002, Talkdemonic released its first album, mutinysunshine, in the spring of 2004. The album is a wonder of O’Connor’s meticulous mind, featuring a sweeping orchestra of instruments; humming synth lines, plaintive acoustic guitar, dead-steady programmed beats, a mournful concertina and a soaring viola all tethered together by O’Connor’s drumming. But this isn’t drumming that simply settles comfortably in the rock ghetto of the “rhythm
section.” O’Connor uses his kit to both push and pull the songs, creating explosions of emotion and deafening silences with the power to move your ass or move you to tears. Live, Talkdemonic’s music revolved around the mop-topped blonde’s drum kit, his primal beats informed by an obsession with instrumental hip-hop. Then, in the summer of 2004 O’Connor finally convinced Lisa Molinaro, the phantom violist whose instrument played out of O’Connor’s laptop during his live sets, to join him, completing a small band with a huge sound. Talkdemonic’s music was powerful as a solo act, but, as a duo, it turned into something even more: a complicated, multidimensional force churning out hair-raising compositions. O’Connor captured the power and curiosity of his compositions, but it took the addition of Molinaro to bring out the true wonder of the songs, her beautiful viola parts pulling at the listener’s heart while O’Connor worked the head and the feet. As a duo Talkdemonic quickly claimed a big chunk of real estate in the Portland scene, opening shows for Explosions in the Sky, Hood, M83, among others. Soon O’Connor and Molinaro’s shows became sure bets for great Portland music and Talkdemonic was named Willamette Week’s Best New Band of 2005. The award landed the band on the cover of the alternative weekly and in the headlining spot of a showcase that saw a block-long line waiting outside Berbati's Pan in vain to see the band that was simply blowing away a packed crowd inside. Throughout all this Talkdemonic found time to record a highly anticipated sophomore slab called Beat Romantic which will be released by Arena Rock Recording Company in August. They also have planned the first national tour that will see both members filling rooms across the country with their curious and beautiful sound. If you’re lucky, there will be room for you in there too.

Extra Classic:
Extra Classic is Adrianne A Verhoeven, Alex deLanda, Josh Adams, Josh Miller, Aaron Deer, Dustin Kinsey, Jake Blanton and David Wetzel from Lawrence, KS, San Francisco, CA and Los Angeles, CA .

Jel:
Jel is an American underground hip hop producer and rapper. He is a co-founder of the indie hip hop record label Anticon. He has been a member of Themselves, Subtle, 13 & God and Presage.

5 Easy Ways to Get Great Internet Radio Guests – Part 1 – Finding Guests

September 7th, 2012

You’ve got a great radio show, but you want to make it even better. How do you find even more great guests, and how do you contact them when you do?

Finding Tip #1. Google Your Target Subject

You know the types of subjects you and your audience want to hear about. Use Google (or your favorite search engine) to find out what, and more importantly who, is hot in that field.

Finding Tip #2. Search Blogtalk for Target Guests

The great thing about finding guests on Blogtalk is that you can hear what interviewing that person is like. You also know they do Blogtalk interviews, and can usually find a link to their website. This makes contacting them even easier.

Finding Tip #3. Go To Your Local Book Store

Authors are always wanting to share their latest book with a larger audience. Look in your local bookstore for the new books coming out in your subject. You can also go to Amazon.com for great authors. They have a lot of great books (and potential guests) that haven’t gotten into the mainstream bookstores yet. This will make them even more eager to find an audience.

Finding Tip #4. Talk To Other Hosts

Joining a few active groups on social media sites can be a gold mine. Most hosts like to brag (and with good reason) about their best interviews, and most don’t mind sharing their best guests. After all, if you like someone, you want them to do well, and helping them find more exposure is good for everyone. You can even promote your favorite guests and win brownie points from them and the other hosts both!

Finding Tip #5. Survey Your Audience

Put a survey on your website or just ask for emails. Ask your audience who they would like to hear on you show. Since it is all about your audience, why not find out what they want? They may know about people you’ve never heard of, or remind you about someone you’ve always wondered about, too. When you contact the guest, you can honestly say your audience asked for them by name! It’s a great way to get your foot in the door.

Now that you have found your perfect guests, how do you get in touch with them? Read 5 Easy Ways to get Great Internet Radio Guests Part 2- Contacting Guests

Finding Tip Bonus! Go to Web Radio Resource

This is a site specifically designed to connect radio hosts and guests. Put your profile up and guests will contact you. Go through the guest profiles and look for your target subjects. They are organized by the same categories as Blogtalk, so it is easy to find just the right guest.
