The Kopsa Family lives in Elkhorn, Nebraska.  This family band is in an evolvement experience.   I reviewed their previous album "Elkhorn Nebraska 2013" in 2014, and was delighted with their obvious dedication and long-time rehearsals getting an album ready to record.  This second album, forwarded to one of their fans, John Cox,  shows us an advancement, especially in their instrument playing and harmony singing.  It's a large family; three girls and two boys, who are probably hungry all the time, but their dad James owns Arby's in Elkhorn, so it's probably not a burden.  His children's instrumentation is pretty much traditional bluegrass, youngest boy on banjo, oldest boy on mandolin.  Without knowing who's doing what, the three sisters play fiddle, acoustic guitar, and acoustic bass.  That's pretty much a standard bluegrass approach, however this young family places most of their efforts on old-timey sounding gospel music. which they do best.  The younger voices are of course 'younger' voices, but the older voices are already peaking very nicely.  It's a very young voice that sings "Cattle Call" but I'll just bet it's the little guy who plays banjo.  He does this difficult song very well.  Another song I like really well is "Freight Train" which was created and played by Elizabeth Cotton, a black artist who had the strings on her guitar strung backwards.  It's a song here, played well on guitar and mandolin with equally good vocal presentations. I've got several 'favorites' this time around.  I thought "Glory Bound" was extremely well done, but so was "On The Wings Of A Snow White Dove."  This family has been working hard on their harmony as well as their instruments.  Not difficult for me to forward this delightful project to the Rural Roots Music Commission, who really love young people playing America's rural music, which this band does so well.  Rural music is rapidly disappearing in America.  So are a lot of our morals.  It is a refreshing opportunity for me to hear that it is not totally gone.  The Kopsa Family is a musical act to watch, listen to, support, and share.  I will be forwarding this project to the Rural Roots Music Commission with the high hopes that they will give the nod to 'young' CD of the Year to this very deserving family band.

CD: JOHN REX REEVES - Classic Country Gold

I've had the wonderful opportunity to not only listen to the terrific vocals of John Rex Reeves, but also traveling with him on tour with my wife Sheila, opening for him with some old-time country, and then John Rex would come on and knock the audience out with some gifted beautiful 'romantic' country music.  John Rex was not just the nephew of Jim Reeves.  John was a close friend, a pal.  They had a very special relationship.  They chummed together, they played golf together, they traveled together.  All of that led John Rex to sing some of his Uncle Jim's songs after Jim passed away.  What he discovered was that his own voice was very much like his Uncle Jim.  Therefore he set out to pay tribute to his uncle and his friend.  This eventually led John to explore his own abilities as a country vocalist after recording a number of tribute albums to his Uncle Jim Reeves.  This newest album is a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate his own voice as himself.  He has an opening song dedicated to his uncle, I doubt that will ever change, but here is an album of John Rex Reeves like we've never heard him before.  Recorded in Nashville, it's loaded with some super songs, done in his own inimitable style.  I couldn't wait to let my wife Sheila listen to song number 3 "California Blue.'  This is really something, our favorite song on this album.  This song was written by Roy Orbinson, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne, participants in the 'Traveling Willbury's' who also had George Harrison and Bob Dylan in their band.  It amazes us how well John does this song.  It's a departure from his total dedication to Uncle Jim, but what a pleasant departure it is.  We get to hear John Rex Reeves doing a really good album of what country music should sound like today, but doesn't.  John Rex is a torch bearer, and even though his 'real' voice is much like Jim Reeves, it's stands on it's own on this album.  What a treat, to hear a vocalist doing what he does best, singing and being himself.  This is a remarkable piece of musical work recorded in Nashville, using some musicians who obviously like what they were playing.  As a musician, I sometimes refer to myself as that, I can immediately recognize another musician who is really enjoying what they are doing.  That's when the 'magic' comes around, the same 'magic' that is so missing in today's country music called country.  You'll find it hear.  Keep up the good work John Rex Reeves, keep appearing on Midwest Country Television Show, and keep on recording this great kind of John Rex Reeves music. This CD goes immediately to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their listen, and a possible nod for a "CD of the Year" from their selection process this year.

A.L.F.O. - Countrynight 23.04.2016 in der Mehrzweckhalle Kägiswil




A.L.F.O. - Countrynight   23.04.2016 in der Mehrzweckhalle Kägiswil


Die American Lifestyle Friends Obwalden kurz A.L.F.O. genannt Organisierten in der Mehrzweckhalle in Kägiswil eine Countrynight.

Vor der Halle erwartete schon der Coboycaffee von Ruedi Küchler und seiner Angie die durch den Regenschauer ankommenden Countryfreunde. So ein gutes Cowboycaffee lässt doch sofort wieder die innere Sonne scheinen.

Vor der ersten Band konnten sich die hungrigen Gäste schon mit diversen kulinarischen Köstlichkeiten die knurrenden Mägen beruhigen lassen. Der Schreiber hat sich mit U.S. Ribb und Cuts, die sehr gut mundeten, auf das kommende eingestimmt.

Auf den Tischen lagen auch die Setlisten mit den dazugehörigen Tänzen für die Line Dancer auf.
Als die Las Vegas Country Band um halb acht Uhr den musikalischen Teil eröffneten, war die Line Dance Bühne schon bei der Ansage des Titels berstend voll. Was besonders interessant war, es wurde nach Line Dance Etikette, getanzt.

Die Las Vegas Country Band passte mit ihrem Bühnenoutfit hervorragend in die mit viel Herzblut dekorierte Bühne. Viele schöne Eigenkompositionen und Standards waren von Alex Klein mit seinem markanten Gesang zu hören und sorgten für gelegentlich wohlige Schauer und auch bei einigen Zuhörern für Gänsehaut. Mit ihrem Auftritt stellten sie eindeutig unter Beweis, warum Sie in der Westschweiz, zu den beliebtesten Live Acts an Line Dance Veranstaltungen gehören.
Der Sound war auch hervorragend, was dem Schreiber, von vielen Festivalbesuchern bestätigt wurde. Der Sound wurde nicht von einer teuren Soundfirma abgemischt, sondern von der Two Rocks Band gestellt und abgemischt. Was wieder einmal beweist, dass manchmal weniger viel besser ist. An dieser Stelle ein Kompliment an die Veranstalter zu diesem Entscheid.

Als die Two Rocks Band mit Band Leader Kurt Frei die Bühne betraten, rieben sich viele Besucher die Augen, stand da doch eine achtköpfige Band auf der Bühne. Neben der Stammband standen noch die Spezial Gäste Sarah Jory (UK) und Eva Wey (CH) auf der Bühne. Die Two Rocks Band konnte den sehr hohen Level der Atmosphäre sogar noch steigern. Ein Konzert der Band kann man nicht beschreiben, dass muss man gehört haben.

Wir freuen uns schon auf das Festival 2017 für das wir bereits wieder Plätze reserviert haben.


Eindrücke von Jessica Hardegger / Sängerin der Two Rocks Country Rock Band

Die Countrynight Kägiswil war für mich zuerst unbekannt und ich war sehr gespannt auf diesen Anlass. Als wir zum Soundcheck ankamen, war ich schon mal von der Location sehr beeindruckt und ich war voller Motivation.

Die Band war bereit und es stand einem Hammer Konzert nichts im Weg. Die Organisatoren hatten wirklich an alles gedacht. Backstage Räume, Verpflegung und Betreuung war wirklich vom feinsten.
Pünktlich legte die Las Vegas Country Band los, und wir waren sehr gespannt wie die Stimmung in der Turnhalle sich entwickelt. Schon beim ersten Song war die Line Dance Bühne voll mit Tänzern.
Als die 1. Band ihren Auftritt beendete, machte sich unsere Pedal Steel Gitarristin Sarah Jory für ihr Steel Guitar Demo bereit. Sie gab dann 4 Songs alleine zum besten, was bei den Zuschauern super ankam.

Ohne eine Pause rief Sie dann uns auf die Bühne und wir eröffneten das 1. Set mit „Lucky Day“.
Auch bei uns war die Tanzfläche voll besetzt was uns sehr begeistert hat. Es war eine wahnsinns Atmosphäre in der Halle. Für mich war diese Countrynight also ein voller Erfolg und eine gute neue Erfahrung. Herzlichen Dank an das OK und all die tollen Zuschauer...
