No one will have to give a road map of Long Island to Tom Dunn, Tilles Center’s new Executive Director since August.

Tom is a tried and true Long Islander. He grew up in Levittown, studied English at Fordham University and now resides in Huntington.

description is to survey the landscape for trends and then implement some new ideas and concepts. He is well suited for the job.

He worked for twenty years at Lincoln Center, starting as a temp in the press office and working his way up to Assistant to the President. During that time he was also founding director of the prestigious Paul Rubenstein Atrium there.

From 2018-2022 he was the Executive Director of the Southampton Arts Center, receiving praise for his innovative exhibitions.

And now, he is the new Executive Director of Tilles Center in Brookville. Considered by many to be the crown jewel of Long Island Performing Arts Centers, Tom will have his hands full. As Tilles enters its 42nd season, he believes his number one challenge is to re-introduce to the market, inviting back old friends and making it new ones.

Tilles is perfectly located, easy to get to from Suffolk and Queens, and a lot better than having to travel into Manhattan to see the same quality acts.

A theater major in school, he has seen the business from both an actor, writer and director and as an administrator at a number of prestigious institutions. Tom co-wrote and directed the play, Who Killed Woody Allen Off-Broadway, which later moved to LA.

Tom joins Tilles at a important is, like most Performing Arts Centers, recovering from Covid burnout where audiences have changed their viewing habits considerably. Part of Tom’s job


Tom’s imprint won’t be seen immediately as he is working on the ‘23-’24 season. His goal is to present world class acts across all genres, including some innovative bookings including improv, theater, comedy, and of course concerts.

Tom wants to make sure that the OPEN sign is out there for independent agents and bookers to rent Tilles. Community groups will be sought to become involved with the events at Tilles.

Tilles consists of the 2200 seat concert hall and the 500 seat Krasnoff Theater, perfect for smaller acts and productions like Tony Danza’s recent stint there.

Upcoming events at Tilles include The Eglevsky Ballet in The Nutcracker, an annual tradition, December 17 & 18, Baby Shark Live The Christmas Show December 27th, and Space Oddity, The Quintessential David Bowie Experience January 7th.

The recently refurbished theater has plush seats, and having been there dozens of times, I can attest that nearly every set is a great one.

Madison Square Garden Presents announced that Grammy Award winning Latin music artist, Marc Anthony, will return to Madison Square Garden on Thursday, February 9, 2023 at 8:00 p.m. This will be his 26th year performing at MSG.

Marc Anthony is one of the most influential artists of his time and a true ambassador of Latin music and culture.

The Staller Center’s Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery opened a new exhibition entitled Revisiting 5+1.

Examining a critical moment at the junction of abstract art, racial and gender politics, and student activism at Stony Brook University, Revisiting 5+1 is a reflection on the historic 1969 exhibition of abstract art 5+1, presenting works by the original artists, alongside a new selection of major works by Black women working in abstraction.

Revisiting 5+1 features work by the six artists in the 1969 exhibition (curated by and including artist Frank Bowling) each of whom created vivid experimental



For rock music and film buffs alike, this is the ultimate guide exploring the electrifying, entertaining, and often daring marriage of rock & roll and cinema.

When the use of Bill Haley’s “Rock Around the Clock” turned 1955’s Blackboard Jungle into a teen sensation and a box-office smash, it proved the opening shot in a cinematic and cultural revolution. Starting with Elvis Presley and the teensploitation films of the ’50s and ’60s, in Rock on Film award-winning author and former Rolling Stone editor Fred Goodman takes readers on a wideranging journey through film and pop history. Along the way, he measures the transformative impact of the mid’60s landmarks A Hard Day’s Night and Don’t Look Back and how they seeded an almost unbelievably broad genre of films made by increasingly ambitious musicians and filmmakers across the past seven decades.

A series of original interviews with Cameron Crowe, Jim Jarmusch, Penelope Spheeris, Taylor Hackford, and John Waters illuminates how rock has influenced the work of some of the most divergent and thoughtful directors in movie history. Illustrated throughout by more than 150 full-color and black-and-white images, Rock on Film brings the history of music in the movies to vivid life.

Baked Goods

Sometimes the greatest finds are by accident. Recently we visited Eisenhower Park and spotted a crafts show. We pulled into the packed parking lot, and surveyed the booths. Over to our right, a throng of people were surrounding one of the booths. Moving closer, I spotted a familiar logo,

Jane Parker. Hmm I thought, what’s going on? Jane Parker has been out of business for years. Is someone using their logo?

At one time, Jane Parker was a household name, the baking division of mighty A&P Super markets, which also owned Waldbaum’s, Path mark, Food Emporium among others. A&P coffee was legendary, and the Jane Parker line of baked goods was sought after.

I started talking with Alex Ronacher, who was manning the booth, and who, along with his brother Chris own the Jane Parker trademark as well as the recipes for the famous Jane Parker fruitcake.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking...fruit cakes...Bah humbug. Well read on dear read er and get educated. A fun story about an iconic brand follows.

Alex and his brother Chris owned an online candy store selling “old” candy. By that we mean dozens of regional brands that were hard to find or near extinct but still in business.

In 2008 A&P remade Jane Parker fruitcakes to celebrate their 150th Anniversary. At about that time, the boys were looking for a new product to sell on their online site and did

a Google search of desserts. They were amazed to find that Jane Parker fruitcakes were in the top three of pastry desserts bought. They attempted to cut a deal with A&P but no luck. So Alex did a swoop of local A&P stores and came up with 40 fruitcakes. He told his brother Chris to post them to their site. To his amazement, by the time he got home with the fruitcakes, they had sold out. A light bulb went off and the brothers hit every A&P brand ed store they could find, buying up every fruitcake. Same result, the fruitcakes sold out quickly.

Fast forward to 2014. A&P has filed for bank ruptcy and has closed all its stores. By an amazing stroke of luck, the Jane Parker name and recipes were being sold at a bankruptcy auction. The boys pounced and got the rights.

Their actual business selling fruitcakes started in 2017 after they ironed out production and qual ity issues. They have never looked back. Now, fruitcakes are a highly seasonal item, sold mainly around the Thanksgiving/Christmas Holidays. The Ronachers went the next step, coming up with a series of delicious dessert pound cakes with fla vors like key lime.

What makes the new version Jane Parker fruitcakes so good is that they use an enormous amount of ingredients, generously filled with more than 2/3 fruits and nuts. Plump juicy raisins, red cherries, golden pineapple, and crunchy pecans are just some of the premium ingredients. The cakes are high quality, very dense, yet very soft.

Now, I’ve tested a number and can honestly say, I love fruitcake!

Jane Parker is based out of Queens, and aside from trips South to sell at craft shows in places like Charleston, Columbia, Savannah, Alex and Chris can be found at many shows right here on Long Island. You can reach them with inquiries at alexro or call them at 833-jp cakes

Be ready, an old tradition is about to get new again for your family.

Mets skipper Buck Showalter was named the 2022 National League Manager of the Year last month. Even though the Mets ran out of gas in September and were bounced in the Wild Card Series by the San Diego Padres, Showalter was a worthy recipient. Under his aegis, the Mets won 101 games which was a 24-game improvement over the team’s 2021 record.

There appeared to be a lack of player accountability under Buck’s predecessor, current Yankees third base coach Luis Rojas. Buck changed that bad mindset immediately. He also enjoyed interacting with reporters from even small media outlets. Based on my observations, there are Mets officials who would have preferred he only dealt with those journalists they deemed important.

The Mets smartly signed their ace closer, and impending free agent, Edwin Diaz to a five-year, $102 million contract. Even if Diaz falters a bit in 2023, he is far better than any potential replacements.

One of the genuinely good guys in baseball, first baseman Dominic Smith, who badly struggled at the plate the last two years, was not tendered a contract by the Mets. Hopefully, Dom will find a team where he can get some playing time and regain his batting stroke. The Yankees, who are trying to re-sign the marquee free agent of this off-season, American League MVP Aaron Judge, did come to terms with his friend, first baseman Anthony Rizzo.

“The Baseball Talmud” (Triumph Books) by Howard Megdal makes for an ideal Hanukkah



In a performance that will be talked about for months on the local tourney scene, Dave Cincotta of North Babylon emerged as the champion of the two-day 2022 LIGBT Thanksgiving Major at Herrill Lanes in New Hyde Park; the finals took place on November 27. Cincotta won the $1,500 top prize by defeating fellow North Babylon resident Tom Catalano in the final shootout, 253-248. Catalano earned $900 for second place; finishing third was Ken Bruce of Oceanside with a 227 worth $600. Rounding out the top finishers was Jae Yi of Flushing, with a 223 earning him $500.

present. This is the most definitive encyclopedia of Jewish baseball players ever compiled. Yes, Sandy Koufax is lionized, but former Mets Art Shamsky, Josh Satin, and Shawn Green, and current Yankees reliever Scott Effross get their due as well. 1966 Baltimore Orioles relief pitching hero Moe Drabowsky, who was not Jewish although many previous books on Jewish athletes have listed him, is not included here.

If you are looking for a sports book aimed at children

who are first learning to read, I recommend “The Mouse Who Played Football” (Temple University Press) by former Philadelphia Eagles running back Brian Westbrook and former Philadelphia television news sports anchor Lesley Van Arsdall. Westbrook, who was an undersized NFL player, has the mouse in his tale represent him.

Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant cut loose last month in an interview with Bleacher Report’s Chris Haynes. After his team got creamed in Sacramento

The Thanksgiving Major, the LIGBT’s first sport shot major in in years, drew 157 entries and paid out $7,880 to 42 bowlers. With another $7,885 in side action, the weekend’s total payout was $15,765. The squad leaders that earned a bye ($200) were Alex Padmore (721), Curtis Hetmeyer (710), Matt Schultz (832), and Ralph Devarti (723). Cut scores on the challenging Sunset Strip oil pattern ranged from 661 to 687.

Coming up: The LIGBT returns to Herrill for the latest in its monthly Sports Shot tournaments on December 18, and hosts its annual New Years Day tournament on January 1 at AMF Garden City Bowl. Get the full scoop at, or call (702) 530-0708.

A pair of area bowling centers are offering “Breakfasts With Santa” as an attraction for kids and their families; the dates are December 11 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Herrill Lanes in New Hyde Park, and breakfast from 10 a.m. to noon or lunch from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on December 17 at Levittown Lanes. Both events offer food and bowling fun and a chance to take photos with Kris Kringle himself.

Reservations are required; for more information, call Herrill at (516) 7418022, or contact Levittown Lanes at (516) 731-5700. A variety of food choices will be available at both centers, as well as lots of holiday fun on the lanes as parents enjoy a day of bowling with their small fry.




One of Hammer’s most popular bowling balls of the past 10 years is the nowlegendary Purple Pearl Urethane – and now the ball manufacturer has upped the game by introducing the new Purple Solid Reactive, available now at all area pro shops; log on to to learn more.

It’s a novel idea – take a popular urethane ball and issue a reactive version with slightly upped specs – and those who have tried the new ball locally have really taken to it. The new version, thanks to the reactive cover stock (the core is virtually the same as the urethane version), raises the differential and offers a bit more flare, which is something higher speed bowlers need when using a ball without a lot of resin-style hook. The ball, simply put, has a stronger back end - which should make this new model fly off the shelves once serious league bowlers see it in action.

diplomacy, but it is hard to argue with his candor.

HBO will be launching a four-part documentary on Shaquille O’Neal. “SHAQ” will cover his lengthy NBA career; his life as a businessman who has several ventures; his work on TNT’s popular studio show, “Inside The NBA,” and how he achieved a graduate degree after his playing days ended.

ESPN’s highest-paid air personality, Stephen A. Smith, has quietly had a recurring role as a mobster consigliere on ABC Television’s long-running soap opera, “General Hospital.” Smith grew up watching “General Hospital” in Hollis.

Pickleball has quietly become the fast-growing sport in the United States. Stephen Colbert gave the

sport its biggest television exposure last month with a two-hour primetime special on CBS called “Pickled.”

The format was a competition between celebrity teams which was reminiscent of those fun “Battle of the Network Stars” specials which aired on ABC and were hosted by the inimitable Howard Cosell.

Longtime NCAA men’s basketball analyst, Bill Raftery,” called the action with his trademark droll wit. He was assisted by former ESPN air personality, Cari Champion. No disrespect to Cari Champion, but it would have been fun if Colbert had hired Raftery’s old broadcasting partner, Ian Eagle, to join him. On a serious note, “Pickled” helped raise funds for the

non-profit organizations supported by Comic Relief. Non-alcoholic beer has always been a tough sell to sports fans. Heineken is hoping to have success in this area by placing the logos for its 0.0 non-alcoholic beer on the New York Islanders ice surfacing smoothing machine. Most folks simply call it a Zamboni. The World Cup is the most-watched sporting event outside of the Olympics. It is also an opportunity for ethnic restaurants to entice patrons to try their cuisine while not missing a minute of the action from Qatar. One of the most popular places in Queens to catch the World Cup is at the Corona Brazilian restaurant, Rainhas Churrascaria.

Singer/Songwriter Mark Newman performed several shows on Long Island in December, both as bandleader in Sailin’ Shoes (Little Feat Tribute) and with his original project The Mark Newman Band. Several of the dates supported Toys For Tots for the holiday season. Addition ally, Mark will present his annual birthday show at The Bitter End in New York City January 16th.

Mark Newman is a well traveled and in demand pro fessional whose musical prowess has taken him around the world several times over; working alongside many soul, blues, and rock greats including John Oates (Hall & Oates), Jim McCarty (The Yardbirds), Willy DeVille (Mink DeVille), Sam The Sham, Bobby Whitlock (Derek and the Dominos) and Sam Moore (Sam & Dave).

Coming soon: The new Mark Newman Band single/ video “At The Border.” About the tune, Mark said “At The Border” started out being about when people were fleeing Ukraine, but it’s also about people around the world trying to escape oppression and hunger”.


Brooklyn-based songstress Enisa has shared her latest single “Just A Kiss (Muah).” The single is also written by Enisa and co-written with Marc Sibley and Nathan Cun ningham of the production duo, Space Primates (Alesso & Katy Perry “When I’m Gone”). “Just A Kiss (Muah)” is accompanied by a lively, cheerful official visual and is an interpolation of the Turkish song Kiss Kiss by Tarkan. The single is the follow-up to the recently released “Zoom” now with over 2.1M views on YouTube alone.

Early 2022 saw the release of Enisa’s Fake Love EP, a body of work that Enisa describes as “empowering” and “authentic” which features the standout tracks “Tears Hit The Ground” and “One Thing,”. The new year also brought with it Enisa’s television debut as a contestant on the NBC musical reality competition “American Song Contest” in


A poignant, joyous, live-for-the-moment celebration, “Kimberly Akimbo” is that exceedingly rare phenome non: an acclaimed musical that becomes even better in its transfer from off-Broadway to Broadway. Director Jes sica Stone has made subtle changes: toning down and polishing Bonnie Milligan’s abrasive performance as Kim berly’s loose-cannon, fugitive aunt into a comedic gem; transforming Kimberly’s alcoholic dad and hypochondriac mother from cartoon caricatures to more sympathetic, struggling parents; and spotlighting Victoria Clark’s ex traordinary, Tony-worthy performance as a 16-year-old girl with the rapidly aging body of a senior citizen. (Booth Theatre)

The hottest ticket this season is the starry off-Broad way revival of “Merrily We Roll Along.” The musical, with a magnificent score by Stephen Sondheim and a problematic book by George Furth, a legendary flop when it premiered in 1981, is now a frequently-revived cult favorite. Jonathan Groff (“Hamilton” “Frozen’s” Kristof),

which she represented her home state of New York. With so much in the works, it looks like 2022 will be another blockbuster year for the Brooklyn-based songstress.


Prolific young singer/songwriter/producer Rob Eberle released his sophomore ep “i can’t say goodbye”, available on Spotify and other major music services.

Listening to the lyrics on his debut ep, “WHERE’S MY MIND?”, there is no doubt that “High School” Rob Eber le’s life had been the living proof of teenage heart break. Now at the ROC NATION School, his sophomore release, “i can’t say goodbye” takes a different approach. This time, Eber le focuses on writing songs that were inspired by other people’s heartbreak & hardships, telling the story through their eyes.

The five song collection is broken up into five different emotions. The feeling of anger shown through the pro duction & lyricism of “wanting more”, the feeling of fear described through “far”, despair through “reckless”, angst through “hope u feel ok” and finally, vulnerability through “there’s not enough time?”

Rob writes his own music, lyrics and works with various producers to create unique moments within his songs. Each one of Eberle’s songs are stories and moments delving into his life and that of others around him.

For more information on Rob Eberle, go to:


Tony-winner Lindsay Mendez (“Carousel”) and Daniel Radcliffe (“Harry Potter”) star as close friends in this tale told in reverse from their bitter estrangement and disil lusion in cynical middle-age to their shared dreams as aspiring artists in 1957. Maria Friedman, who staged the Menier Chocolate Factory’s Olivier-winning production, directs. (New York Theatre Workshop) https://www.nytw. org/show/merrily-we-roll-along Artistic vision and egos collide in Anthony McCarten’s play “The Collaboration,” which the Manhattan Theatre Club has brought from London’s Young Vic with its stars and director Kwanme Kwei-Armah intact. At their manager’s suggestion, Andy Warhol (Paul Bettany), whose pop superstardom is waning, and rising art world star Jean-Michel Basquiat (Jeremy Pope) agree to collaborate for a New York exhibition in 1984.

The 2ndStage is reviving Stephen Adly Guirgis’s 2015 Pulitzer Prize-winner “Between Riverside and Crazy,” a dark comedy about a recently widowed former cop (Stephen McKinley Henderson) and his paroled son (Com mon) who battle his land lord to hold on to his large rent-controlled apartment on Riverside Drive, which has become a home to addicts and outcasts. The original cast and director Austin Pendleton reprise their roles. (Hayes Theatre)

Welcome back to another energizing edition of TechnoBeat! There’s a lot of shows coming to the area around the holidays across all subgenres of EDM, so I hope you’re ready. First up, we have Manic Focus at the Brooklyn Bowl on December 16. Manic Focus loves to bring the funk vibes to the table with heavy synths and chopped up rhythms that are easy to please anyone. He’s been around a while and knows exactly how to keep a crowd on the edge of their seats and thoroughly entertained. On the house end of things, Wax Motif will be heading to Somewhere Nowhere on December 23 bringing the ”boots and cats” to the dancefloor. Wax is no stranger to the game and feeds the crowd with explosive sets and unique energy, one of the reasons he has propelled himself to the top of the house game as of late.

On New Year’s Eve at Marquee NYC, you can treat yourself to a headlining show by NGHTMRE, a true master at his craft and someone who has been on the scene for ten years at this point. I just caught his stop in Texas recently and it was by far one of the best sets I’ve heard recently. He really understands how to make a full set flow, with heavy bass drops, engaging melodies, and a varied style that could please anyone. I had a friend who isn’t into EDM tell me it was one of the top sets they’ve seen all year and it’s easy to see why when you get to check him out for yourself. Last up, we have The Floozies stopping by Brooklyn Bowl on January 12 to bring their funky vocoder samples and crunchy bass lines to the Big Apple. The Floozies are one of my favorites live as there is no shortage of danceable tracks. The boys get wild on stage and keep it fun and funny. There is a lighthearted goofiness to their personalities and live instrumentation plays a key role in creating the best possible experience.

If you’re willing to make the trek outside of NYC, Hijinx Festival will be rolling through Philadelphia on December 29 and 30 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. This festival always brings amazing production, top tier acts, and the venue is massive with plenty of room to find space for dancing. This year’s lineup is not for the faint of heart. Headlining sets include DJ Snake, Flume, Ganja White Night, Big Gigantic x NGHTMRE, Griz x Zeds Dead, and Rezz. Even the under card is killer with names like Blanke, Joyryde, Ray Volpe,

and Troyboi. Tickets are relatively inexpensive at around $200 for the full two days. You could expect to pay over $100 just to see DJ Snake in NYC. To put it simply, this is a steal. Every year when I go to Hijinx, I’m blown away by the amount of sound output and the attention to detail by the organizers of the event. I’m telling you, this is not one worth missing. And you even have time to get back for NYE in the city.

Although not a new album, I’ve recently had “ReEntry” by Daily Bread on repeat. Daily Bread is a similar style to The Floozies and Manic Focus, but puts even more of an emphasis on hiphop centric chopped up vocals. What this guy can do with just some vocal samples is insane. Where most artists use instruments to create melodies in the foreground, Daily Bread does so with vocals. It’s truly awe inspiring and blends funk, electronic, and hip-hop in a such a one-of-a-kind way. One of my favorites off the album is “Meditate”. Although a bit on the chiller side, the production is unparalleled. The creativity and ingenuity of how these songs come together is something that has only gotten better over time. His latest release, “ATL.A.”, focuses even more on the rap side of his producing and contains the classic Daily Bread style with features by Murs on every track. It really is the perfect blend and can appeal to multiple genres of listeners. I’m not sure why Daily Bread hasn’t

blown up yet and completely taken over the scene, but he’s another one to watch for and experience his come-up first hand.

Hope you got what you wanted out of this and feel free to reach out to with any thoughts. Always remember, keep raging my friends!

Sixteen year old Havanna Winter is lighting up this holiday season with her festive new single, “Daddy’s Kissing Santa Claus,” available now via Stevie Van Zandt’s new Wonderwall Records at all DSPs and streaming services. Produced by Nevin Sastry (JoJo, Jamie Miller, Shaboozey) and co-written by Winter, Sastry, Carlos Guevara (The X Factor), and Executive Producer Maya K (Bebe Rexha, Anita, J Balvin), the track is accompanied by an outrageous 80s-inspired Christmas video – co-starring Havanna alongside an all-star cast that includes Guevara, Marsha Molinari, Vince Rossi, Jordan Xidas, Jonnie Reinhart, Justin Love, Terrell Jones, Niels van den Heuvel, and Jonah Almanzar.

Winter is currently at work on her debut album, due via Wonderwall Records in the new year. With her vocal range, versatility, and a one-of-a-kind vision that takes inspiration from myriad musical genres as well as such filmmakers as Tim Burton and Quentin Tarantino, the stillevolving young artist is determined to bring a similarly vivid and creative approach to modern Pop, infusing retro influences with forward-facing spirit to create something altogether her own.


Angela Strehli returns with Ace of Blues via Antone’s/New West Records. The 12-song set is her first album in over 17 years and was co-produced by Strehli & her husband Bob Brown. For over five decades, the 76-year-old’s voice has coursed through the genre akin to blood through a heart. Her influence can be felt in the legacy of Antone’s — the iconic Austin blues club she helped found with the late Clifford Antone and where she performed & became friends with the likes of Muddy Waters, Albert King, Otis Rush, Jimmy Reed, and countless others. Buddy Guy calls Ace of Blues, “Tough, soulful, and sexy.

Angela Strehli’s Ace of Blues marks the first new release for the relaunched Antone’s Records imprint through New West Records. It is available across digital retailers & streaming platforms, compact disc, and standard black vinyl. A limited to 500 Blue Vinyl Edition is available at Independent Retailers as well as NEW WEST RECORDS.



Laci Kaye Booth recently started teasing new music on socials and garnered overwhelming support with thousands of pre-saves and hundreds of user generated content videos featuring her latest song, “Damn Good In A Dive Bar.” The tune, written by Booth, Melissa Peirce, and Ben West (produced by Ben West) is a birth of sorts of Booth’s artistic vision which aims to pave the way for the next generation of introspective cowgirls. Much like her vocals were influenced by certain artists, so was Booth’s songwriting. But still, she recalls that when she first moved from Texas to Nashville, she didn’t have complete faith in her ability to write a great song.

Eager to follow up on the success of “Bruises,” ANNIKA ROSE is already back with the energetic, fiery alternative pop monster “In My Head,” out via Nvak Collective. Just as with “Bruises,” the Los Angeles singer-songwriter released the track first as a collection of 50 audio NFTs on which sold out in under one minute.

An early adopter of web3, Annika has embraced audio NFTs. After successfully selling out her single “Bruises” as a limited collection of 25 audio NFTs on the sound. xyz platform last month, she did a similar release with “In My Head,” exclusively releasing 50 audio NFTs. Annika sold out all 25 editions of her “Bruises” audio NFT on pre-sale, becoming the first artist to ever do so on the platform. Then, within 24 hours she had her first secondary sale when edition #3 sold for 0.594 ETHnearly 12x the mint price of the NFT; another sold for 0.5 ETH as well. The 50 “In My Head” audio NFTs sold-out on pre-sale and public on-sale within a minute.

Liz Jane was raised in the Low country of Port Royal, SC, and early on discovered a promising aptitude for music. Not only blessed with a great voice, but her long fingers also made playing the piano a natural development. It was then onto the guitar where she found herself in the classroom of transplanted New Yorker Jim Bachety who took her under his wing and their relationship began. As Liz Jane explains, “Jim changed everything for me musically. He pushed me to learn and play out of my comfort zone and built up my confidence in a huge way.”

Bachety, who started a music school in Babylon, NY while creatively starting the house jazz band New Creation at Oheka Castle, and current owner of Port Royal Music Academy immediately saw Liz Jane’s innate talent. Liz Jane and Bachety immediately started playing together in church and other venues with their smooth jazz band Horizon, which includes bandmates Kyle Fabian on bass and Stephan Mozer on drums.

The launch of her album A Thrill of Hope and a move to Nashville is on Liz Jane’s agenda. During this holiday season as you listen to her beautiful and memorable songs you can understand when a listener told her, “This is Christmas music how Christmas music is supposed to sound.” If you can’t see her in person, buy her CD at It will be the perfect timeless gift that you will listen to for years.

Then along came Nathan Chapman, James Slater, Charles Kelley, Sam Ellis, Laura Veltz, Jimmy Robbins, Liz Rose, and many more. Treasured Nashville songwriters who are not only prolific, they are good, kind people who welcomed Booth completely with open arms. It did not take long for her to prove herself in these rooms and through word of mouth, the songwriting community became aware of Laci and her talent. When she’d walk into a writing session with these seasoned hitmakers, she’d walk out with so much more than just a song or two.


Bass house’s Nostalgix is back to share her Supah Fly EP, with final single “Party All Night (ft. Chi City),” the last track to wrap up the powerhouse trio of new tunes. Nostalgix uses her ability to pack the bass, hard-hitting beats, and punchy grooves to showcase the best of her sound as she closes out a monumental year.

Last year she was touring for the first time in her life and doing the craziest performances. It inspired her to experiment with her sound and create more high-energy records that embodied the lifestyle that she was living.

2022 was a pivotal year for Nostalgix, with releases including “Heat Rush” featuring Dyer on Deadbeats and “My Type” on Night Bass, after having kicked off the year with “Snitches” on the Confession x Night Bass compilation, and “Ghost” with Dr. Fresch. She joined Tchami + AC Slater’s Confession vs Night Bass tour, ARMNHMR Waiting For Love Tour, Bijou’s Unlocked Tour, Destructo’s ‘F With Me Tour.

She’ll be appearing at Zone One @Elsewhere in Brooklyn December 30th.

While the music industry is in a bit of a lull excitement wise, one aspect of the industry is blazing, and that is the rebirth of vinyl records. The site called Discogs is one of the most successful business locations since the virus kept many people home in front of their pcs. The song ‘download’, which had threatened to end the purchase of physical product in the past decade, has now given way to people starting or continuing ‘record collections’.Young fans in particular seem to be the most avid after losing interest in the pc format of music buying; there is nothing that compares with a gate fold album cover with lyrics, info, and pictures. Records are back!

In the pop music world, another young star, Aaron Carter, sadly has passed away at the age of 34, with no apparent cause of death, although many have speculated that he took his own life; that, of course, has not been proven, but the entertainment business, be it music or movies, is notoruous for taking an emotional and psychological toll on many ‘stars’ through the decades. The newest teen mania idol, Harry Styles, will hopefully stay on course in what can be a very hard business.

Some entertainers are wise enough to ‘get out while they can’, and the word is that Sir Elton John has decided to do just that; this isn’t the first time that EJ has made noise about staying home and counting his money, and he has managed to stay on the charts through the decades, as per his recent stint with Britney Spears, who isn’t exactly a brand new attraction herself. Now, more than ever, with music sales being a minor factor, the business is more difficult to navigate, but it’s still alive and well.

ROCAVAKA - The Vaka That Rocks! Will present: The 6th Annual Metal Hall of Fame Charity Gala, where Rock Legends TWISTED SISTER will be Inducted into the 2023 Metal Hall of Fame. The event will take place January 26, 2023, at the Canyon Club, Agoura Hills, CA.

The classic Twisted Sister lineup of Dee Snider, Jay Jay French, Eddie Ojeda, Mark Mendoza, and late drummer, A.J Pero, will be Inducted into the 2023 Metal Hall of Fame.

Together, these musicians recorded Twisted Sister’s first four albums. Their first two albums “Under the Blade,” and “You Can’t Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll,” developed huge underground popularity for the band. This led Twisted Sis ter to achieve mainstream success with their third album “Stay Hungry” and the hit single “We’re Not Gonna Take It”. Over the last 30 years, both We’re Not Gonna take It, along with Twisted Sister’s other classic anthem, “I Wanna Rock” are considered to be two of the most influential videos in the history of Heavy Metal / MTV.

A special Rocavaka Meet & Greet with DEE SNIDER, Rocavaka’s brand ambassador, will take place after the Induction Ceremony where limited edi tion Dee Snider numbered Rocavaka bottles will be made available for pur chase and signing.

British hard rock legends and progenitors Uriah Heep announced the release of their 25th studio album, Chaos & Colour, set for release January 27th, 2023 via Silver Lining Music.

“Save Me Tonight” is another powerful me lodic rock track which we have chosen to be the first single as well as the opening track of the album,” says Mick Box, Uriah Heep’s ven erable and effervescent founding member, “it is made for rock radio and will surely be included on our new set list in 2023.”

Chaos & Colour is an album which bristles with explosive classic rock guitars, supreme harmonies, and Heep’s famously generous keyboard foundation.

Led by Box, it is no surprise that themes of light, love and, ultimately, posi tivity are constant through the album’s eleven tracks. “One Nation, One Sun” is a journey of soaring balladic contemplation, “Fly Like An Eagle” takes the listener on a journey of meditation, whilst “Closer To Your Dreams” is a bat tle cry for all rockers to get out there and do it, with Shaw imploring that “So many have tried but slipped away/Now it’s time for you to have your say.”

During the entire album, Bernie Shaw’s timeless vocals sit expertly beside the band’s phenomenal artistry (Mick Box – guitar, Phil Lanzon – keyboard, Russell Gilbrook – drums, Dave Rimmer – bass), rounding out exceptional performances throughout.

The Rolling Stones celebrated their golden anniversary in 2012 & 2013 on the 50 & Counting Tour, a 30-show itinerary for North America and Europe. On December 15, 2012, the band took the stage in Newark for the final of four shows in the New York area. Featuring guest appearances by The Black Keys (Who Do You Love?), Gary Clark Jr & John Mayer (Going Down), Lady Gaga (Gimme Shelter), Mick Taylor (Midnight Rambler) and hometown hero Bruce Springsteen (Tumbling Dice), the concert was one of the most memorable shows in the band’s history.

“The Hypnogogue is the most prog rock thing we have ever done and also we’ve never had a concept album before,” says Steve Kilbey, the bassist, vocalist and founder of seminal psych-guitar masters

THE CHURCH about their new dystopian album set in 2054 (due out February 24, 2023 via Communicating Vessels). The Church announced their North American tour set for Spring 2023 supporting the release of The Hypnogogue. Kicking off at Los Angeles’ The Belasco on March 11, the tour winds around the continent including shows in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Chicago, Philly, NYC, Boston among many other dates.

Gov’t Mule will be wrapping up the year and ringing in 2023 with their annual New Year’s Run, which makes its triumphant return this year. Following its kickoff in Philadelphia on December 29, the three-night stand comes to New York City on Friday, December 30 and Saturday, December 31 to take over The Beacon Theatre. The renowned quartet is led by GRAMMY Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, guitar legend, and producer Warren Haynes.

`Heavy Load Blues (Fantasy Records), the band’s first-ever blues album, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Albums chart upon its November 2021 release, marking Gov’t Mule’s third album to enter the Billboard charts at the top spot in their storied career. The 13-track album, produced by Haynes alongside engineer and co-producer John Paterno (Elvis Costello, Michael Landau, Bonnie Raitt, Robbie Williams, Los Lobos), encompasses an even mix of Haynes’ originals, such as “Heavy Load,” and revered covers, including their rendition of the Tom Waits classic “Make It Rain,” a groovy arrangement of the Junior Wells standard “Snatch It Back and Hold It,” and more originally made famous by the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Elmore James, Ann Peebles, Bobby “Blue” Bland, and The Animals.


The music of Marvin Gaye transcends time in ways that can’t be described. From relatable songs about romance and heartbreak like “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” to socially conscious meditations “What’s Going On” and “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)”, his music continues to resonate across generations.

Captured on Marvin Gaye: Greatest Hits Live In ‘76, these songs, which were originally released on DVD in 2007, are now available as a standalone audio release for the first time. The set will be released on vinyl and CD on January 27, 2023 by Mercury Studios.

Marvin Gaye: Greatest Hits Live In ‘76 was recorded in the midst of his 1976 European tour, during a live performance at the Edenhalle Concert Hall in Amsterdam. The 20+ song set features an abundance of Marvin Gaye’s beloved hit songs, spanning his entire career up until that point.


Iggy Pop explodes back onto the scene with the aptly titled “Frenzy.” The brand new single is out via the recently announced partnership between Atlantic Records and Gold Tooth Records, the new label founded by GRAMMY Awardwinning, multi-platinum “Frenzy“ producer and guitarist, Andrew Watt.

Three solid minutes of unadulterated primal rock fury, “Frenzy” signals a return to the raw powered aggro of earlier Iggy vintages—a sharp 180 degree turn from Iggy’s most recent album, 2019’s Free. Where Free’s somber and contemplative meditations on mortality and the human condition saw a vulnerable Iggy taking a deep look inward, “Frenzy” lashes out with the unmistakable and unequaled intensity that earned Iggy the Godfather of Punk sobriquet—fueled by a band consisting of producer Watt (guitar/background vocals), Duff McKagan (bass) and Chad Smith (drums).
