Out & About continued... amazing compared to Pinnacle. All of their doctors have an amazing bed side manner. We are so glad we made the switch to Hershey. While I was out delivering magazines I did see J & D (Jeff Seyfried and Darrell Adams) at the Fredericksburg Eagle Hotel. It’s always a great place to stop, get some dinner, and enjoy the music! They’ve been having acoustic music on Friday nights from 6-9, followed by a DJ after the dinner rush. It really works out perfect for my delivery route! It was crazy to see Darrell stepped up to the technological world and is now using an iPad to get his song lyrics and ideas, although his big old school binder still travels with him. I’ll have to wait and see who is going to be next. You can also check out the Eagle Hotel’s full schedule in this issue and plan your next big night out on the town. Please check out this issue. We have quite a few new advertisers and plenty of old ones! All of our advertisers need as much help as you can possibly give them. It is not easy to be self-employed in today’s world, or any world for this matter. Before you order something on the internet, please remember your local merchants. Make sure and check out the ad about all of the numerous benefits for Tubby’s happening throughout April and beyond. It is awesome to see the outpouring of the music community helping Tubby’s clean up from the ashes. We are still holding on to hope that they will rebuild, but as I’m typing this, that is still up in the air. So, we shall see… There are fewer and fewer places to play. Please get out there and support live music, support the venues, the music stores, the bands, etc. We are family, we have to watch out for each other. If you have any questions or comments you can reach me at RachelRocks@pamusician.net. Get out there and Support Local Music!

NATIONALS By Eric Hoffman

Greetings Rockers’N’ Rollers! The 21st Millennium Music Conference was greatly successful once again for its annual event bringing over 300 acts to the mid-state. Notable bands included the return of The April Skies at O’Reilly’s Pub and Jack Pyers at Pete’s in New Cumberland. It was great to catch up with Jack Pyers after his set and reminisce stories from his days with heavy metal band Dirty Looks while being signed to Atlantic Records. Pyers, brings his solo work again to Camp Hill’s Cornerstone Coffeehouse April 2nd. The keynote address given by Live’s Chad Taylor was a huge highlight of the Conference. Live, the band who originated in York, PA has sold over 20 million records including the 8x platinum album “Throwing Copper”. An incredibly informative speech in which Taylor spoke of his ambitious goals as a teenager, to the rise of a successful artist and how he continues his career today. Congratulations and thank you to MMC founder  John Harris Jr. on his achievements and contributions to Central PA.  Noise pop band Crocodiles  visited Baltimore’s Metro Gallery. The band formed in 2008 in San Diego and their sound has typically been likened to The Jesus & Mary Chain. Core members  Brandon Welchez and Charles Rowell blared through a great set of their distortion songs from the band’s six album catalog. Crocodiles just finished at 20-date US/Mexico tour that finished at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Rowell is truly one of the best guitarist I’ve ever witnessed, with a style and passion unprecedented. Two local bands who are currently making an impressive impact on the current scene include: Timmy & The Creeping Thyme and The Twindows. Both bands have only been around a couple years and both recently played free shows at Blue Moose in Linglestown. Timmy & The Creeping Thyme current band line-up includes founder Tim Lengel, with Tony Garber (The 91s) on bass and Brian Cartwright (Lebowskis) on drums.  The Twindows released a really impressive ‘Super Demo’ cd in February and performed in 7 cities in 7 days last month, from Buffalo, NY to Trenton, NJ. NATIONAL NEWS: Chuck Berry, rock ‘n’ roll’s founding guitar hero and storyteller who defined music in such classics as “Johnny B. Goode,” ‘’Sweet Little Sixteen” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” died March 18th at his home west of St. Louis. He was 90. Emergency responders summoned to Berry’s residence continued on next page...
