BJ THE CHICAGO KID: JULIAN WILLIAMS als Tour Support bestätigt

Anfang nächster Woche ist es endlich soweit, BJ THE CHICAGO KID startet seine erste Deutschlandtournee. Für die insgesamt fünf Konzerte steht nun mit Soul- und R&B-Koryphäe JULIAN WILLIAMS, der sensationelle Support Act fest. WILLIAMS trat 1999 unter seinem Alias J-LUV ins Rampenlicht, als er von 3p-Chef Moses Pelham entdeckt wurde und sich als Backgroundsänger von Größen wie Xavier Naidoo, Azad und Sabrina Setlur, einen Namen machte. Kurze Zeit später startete er seine Solo-Karriere und sackte mit seinem Debütalbum „Kontraste“ (2002) fünf Echo-Nominierungen ein. Nachdem JULIAN WILLIAMS in den letzten Jahren eher als Produzent und Songwriter aktiv war, veröffentlichte er in diesem Sommer sein neues Album „Vergessene Welt“ und meldete sich bei seinen Fans zurück.
Er ist die perfekte Ergänzung für die Headlineshows von BJ THE CHICAGO KID, der ebenfalls als Backgroundsänger seinen Grundstein im Musikbusiness legte (u.a. von Mary J. Blidge, Stevie Wonder oder James Brown). Seitdem ist viel Zeit vergangen und BJ THE CHICAGO KID veröffentlichte in der Zwischenzeit vier EPs und im Februar 2016 sein Debütalbum „In My Mind“ (Motown Records), welches bei den Medien hoch gehandelt wird. Zum Beispiel schreibt die VICE „BJ THE CHICAGO KID ist ein Leuchtfeuer der Soul Musik“. Das Werk, welches er ab dem 04.10. live in Deutschland präsentieren wird, beinhaltet verschiedenste Kollaborationen, u.a. mit Rap-Größe Kendrick Lamar und Chicago New School Rapper Chance The Rapper.
In Kooperation mit CANTONA ENTERTAINMENT
Präsentiert von: Vevo, JUICE, Splash! Mag, HipHop.de, hhv.de, Funkhaus Europa, ByteFM

LACtember Fest 2016 with The LACS


LACtember Fest 2016

Two weeks ago I couldn't tell anyone much about LACtember Fest, or what it was and where it was, but I knew who the good ol' boys from southeast Georgia, The LACS, were for sure! For the last four years the southern rock-country-rap music duo, Brian King and Clay Sharpe, of The LACS, a penned name for Loud Ass Crackers, has hosted the biggest redneck party in the southeast to show their appreciation to their many fans for getting them to where they are today, and by giving back to those same fans and their community. LACtember Fest, is a huge 3-day outdoor camping, mudslingin', 4-wheelin', mud boggin', concert event that has grown exponentially each year since the redneck throwdowns first began as LACtober Fest, in 2013 and 2014.

Nestled deep in the backwoods and under the canopy of mossy oaks; where the alligators and snakes crawl, where moonshine is the house wine, and honeysuckle grows sweet on the vine is a little country town called Blackshear, Georgia and home of Moccasin Creek Off Road Park. Moccasin Creek Off Road Park is the perfect venue and atmosphere for The LACS music and fans to gather together for good times with friends, and have a big ol' redneck party and mud slingin' throwdown. For two years in a row, Moccasin Creek Off Road Park, has hosted LACtember Fest which comes complete with 2 days of live country music artists performing on an outdoor stage, and rich with offering over 500 acres of land, over 50 water RV hook-ups, spacious bath-houses, ATV wash stations, plentiful field space for primitive campsites and RV parking, and over 1 mile of river access that offers party-goers promises of plenty of off road enjoyment through numerous mud bogs and miles of trails to entertain the whole family; young and old alike.

The 3-day event is a blend of country music, hick-hop, southern rap, southern rock and outlaw country music, lots of fun, plenty of muddin' and 4Wheelin', and just what the doctor prescribed for these Kickin' Up Mud friends! It has even been rumored the kids bargain for Christmas and birthday gifts/tickets to the grand event, and adoring fans actually plan their vacations and honeymoons around LACtember Fest!!! Last year's attendance was calculated at approximately 2,000 party-goers, but this year, LACtember Fest 2016, shattered and surpassed all previous records combined with a total of approximately 6,000 fans in attendance! Now that's what we down south call a PARTY!!! This year the epic event even sported a REDNECK WEDDING on Saturday, complete with the Dreadknots member, Dave “The Kraken” Stone, from the televised syndicated show, Axemen, who officiated the wedding ceremony. The happily married couple, Josh and Brittany Phillips, from Pooler, Georgia, had previously met at LACtober Fest 2014, 2 years before tying the knot this year. They met each other through The LACS and only thought it fitting to have their wedding among their redneck family of friends...how romantic!

The event hosted a variety of musical acts performing on stage. Friday night, September 16th, offering a lineup of such music from the amazing cover band, BLACKFORD CREEK; a southern rock and country music band to open the weekend's festivities. The 4 member band consisting of Dan Hall, Steven Stewart, Robert Mattingly, and Zack King kicked the party off with I Walk The Line by Johnny Cash, Troubadour by George Strait, and Folsom Prison by Johnny Cash. They are currently working on the release of a new CD, so stay tuned and keep your ears out for this incredible band and their music!

The foot stomping and cheering redneck crowd welcomed SALAZAR back to the lineup again this year with not a disappointed soul in sight! The SALAZAR NATION gathered and rocked through the night with cover songs and originals from the awesome band. You can find SALAZAR music on Reverbnation, and they are also in the studio producing a new CD, so keep your ears out for them as well!

And to round or Friday night off, we had CONFEDERATE RAILROAD graciously step in and offer to play when an ailing DAVID ALLAN COE was sick and unable to show. Although DAVID ALLAN COE was unable to show due to health reasons, CONFEDERATE RAILROAD was no disappointment as the fans gathered and went wild to party down with the outlaw country music icons and round off the night's epic music event!

On Saturday, September 17th, after a day of slinging mud and having fun with the entire family and new found friends, the music opened with the joyful and exuberant, TANYA & THE ROADRUNNERZ with cover songs ranging from Patsy Cline and Heart, to AC/DC and many other artists. This was the third year for the talented ROADRUNNERZ family band to return after opening for such acts as; Love and Theft, Tracy Lawrence, Colt Ford, David Allan Coe, John Berry, and Johnny Lee.” With all family members working to make ends meet, it's kinda hard to do and record the music you love to do”, says Tanya Williams, but they are currently working to produce a CD with all original songs very soon, so keep those ears open, still, especially for their new Merle Tribute Song!

Up next for the party goers enjoyment came the musical score from the rated #1 Top Country Rock Band in Canada called, DRY COUNTY! The four man band consisting of Jeff Gallagher, Randy Soiski, Dan Laframbois, and Keith Silver traveled 21 hours one way. They were incredible and rocked the crowd with their Redneck Mafia logo and “AC/DC meets Alabama” style of country rebel rock music! Their new CD, COWBOY UP, is out in stores now, so get your copy today!

BIG ENGINE, from Jacksonville, Florida was up next performing songs from their recent album, SHOT LIKE A ROCKET. This band's nitrous fueled shows go hand in hand with fast cars and 4WD's; it's right up the LACtember Fest's mud bogging trailed fans alley! These guys have shared the music stage with Buckcherry, Bret Michaels, Vince Neil, Charlie Daniels, 38 Special, Ted Nugent, Motorhead, and Shooter Jennings bringing high energy concerts to each of it's crowds and die-hard fans at venues such as Sturgis Bike Rally and NASCAR races. Catch BIG ENGINE at a local venue near you, and grab a copy of SHOT LIKE A ROCKET today!

Last but not least, came the hick-hop, country-rap music sensation the whole crowd had been waiting for.... The LACS! The LACS recently joined forces with the band members of HARD TARGET to produce and promote their new music venture, RACKET COUNTY. The combined forces of such great talent can be found on their new CD entitled WELCOME TO DODGE CITY. RACKET COUNTY ended the weekend by rocking us through the night, and granted fans a special After-Party/Meet & Greet, hosted by The LACS.

So there you have it, one EPIC weekend chocked full of fun, sun, mud, family, friends, music and adventure, and what we southerners call LACtember Fest 2016! All bands and their music, in attendance and mentioned above, can be found on Facebook, Reverbnation, iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, and various other music media outlets. Go check 'em out and buy their music today! Coming soon....more music reviews on these listed and featured artists. Thanks for all the great memories and friendships made there at LACtember Fest this year, and I'm looking forward to another EPIC year next year at LACtember Fest 2017! Over and out.....Penney!

IN MEMORIUM STU STEVENS 1936 - 2016


IN MEMORIUM
STU STEVENS
1936 - 2016
September 25th 2016 would have been the 80th birthday of Stu Stevens, one of the greatest country music singers Britain has ever produced.  Sadly Stu didn’t make it to his 80th birthday.  He died in Chesterfield, England a few weeks ago from complications of pneumonia and heart failure at the age of 79.  He leaves behind some of the best songs ever committed to tape by a home-grown artist.
Stu rarely gave interviews, but at his heyday in 1981, he spoke with Stuart Cameron in an exclusive interview on BBC Radio Oxford.  As far as we know this was the only interview from his recording days with MCA, Young Blood and his own Eagle label that survived.
In 1969 he was signed to Columbia Records under the name STUART STEVENS.  “Soft Is The Night” was recorded at Abbey Road Studios featuring the world famous Norrie Paramor Orchestra.
The Mid 1970s saw his career take off with visits to America to play The Grand Ole Opry and meetings with Elvis Presley and John Wayne inspired him to greater things. His singles on Young Blood Records were also released in America, guaranteeing him airplay.
In 1979 he released an Even Stevens/Shel Silverstein song on his own Eagle label called “The Man From Outer Space” and after Radio 2 DJ Terry Wogan picked up on it, MCA came calling and released it as a single as well as an album of the same name.  It got into the lower reaches of the British chart and from then on he became known as "The Voice", for obvious reasons.
At the time he was touring the UK with a full orchestra, famously selling out the Apollo Theatre in Oxford, and one of the songs from the live recording became an instant radio hit – his version of “The Old Rugged Cross.”   Albums like “Stu” and “Emma & I” were among his best ever work coming out of his own studio in mid England. He was a perfectionist, and knew what sound he wanted – a sound that would capture his deep voice perfectly.
In the 80s he would experiment with different material – he even released “Cowboy In Paris”, a much sought after disco record which did well on the continent – and a few novelty tracks including a traditional ditty called “Dream It Back,” which was his final delve into the singles market in 1986.
After that the success went away as far as the music was concerned.  He was coming to terms with personal tragedy with the death of one of his sons, Stephen, in 1984 at a very early age, and soon after his wife Daphne.  Stephen's brother and Stu's older son Stuart used to back him on stage and were a big part of his shows from the time they were seven and ten years of age.
He retreated to his other love, sheep farming, and settled down with his new wife Elizabeth, who was with him for some 25 years and by his side at his death on June 13, 2016. During those years Stevens continued to write the music he loved, as well as working to release his book "Lalla" in 2015.
Before he died he went back into the studio recording covers and original songs and brought out an album called “Still Standing.”  He got the bug back again and made two further albums as well as a gospel collection, and an old video of him performing live was re-discovered.  The rare video was dusted off and re-mastered and it came out as a DVD.
But it’s his collection of greatest recordings, “The Voice”, which captured the magic of the great man in his heyday back in the 1970s and 1980s, and his music is sure to stand the test of time. Quite simply Stu Stevens was one of the unsung heroes of the music business, never getting the true recognition he deserved, but when his music is re-assessed in the future his remarkable voice is sure to reveal to many that he was one of the greatest singers not only in British country music, but in any genre of music.
A three-time recipient of Male Vocal of Year, Stu's return to the music world and his hard work paid off on November 23, 2014 when he was inducted into the "BCMA" Music Hall of Fame. (BPP expresses thanks for Obituary Contributed by Stuart Cameron/ HOTDISC Top 40 Uk)

(As the family continues to mourn in private, and appreciates and thanks you for your kind expressions of love, it is their request that all Condolences be directed to either email address listed here:)   bpp1944@att.net  or  sturadio@hotmail.com
