Monday and a new week begins

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, May 02, 2011

How was your weekend? We had a good one overall. I did not get to the Music Fest, due to obligations that arose. The press passes never came through and then Peter's HS Baseball team had a playoff game on Saturday. Sunday was wet and fugly, so I sat and watched some of my Yankees and some Grizzlies. As a mater of fact, that is what I am doing as I type this.

The BLUES MUSIC AWARDS are this Thursday. Held in the Home of the Blues, Memphis, TN, I will be there to cover it for American Blues News and to do some networking for Music On The Couch for future guests and for some special opportunities I am working on for late 2011 - early 2012.

There are some opportunities that are making their way into my life from several directions and it could greatly impact the way my world looks in the next year or so.

It appears EVERY SINGLE PERSON in the Oklahoma Thunder arena is wearing a blue shirt. Not just most of them, but every single person the camera shows...OH WAIT, there is a guy in a red shirt. Wonder if he makes it out alive! Of course he does, this is middle America and nothing bad ever happens in middle America, right?

This week:



Krista Parrish comes to The Couch through a suggestion by our friend Dusty from RoboDrum. This young lady is a must hear. Her music is intelligent and her vocal range is astounding.

That might be enough to have you come listen, but adding to that, Ms. Parrish is a smokin' guitar player. Her song "Mexico" was selected for the Gods Of Indie Guitar album this year.

Last year Krista released Playing With Pendulums with bassist/husband Steven Murphy and drummer Michael Fazekas. A song off the album, "Easier Said Than Done" went to #1 on the indie music charts in the rock category.

She was recently signed to Cinderella Records and we will discuss her explosive journey and what is on the horizon.

Then we get to sit with Austin Young. Austin is a 15-year old guitar sensation from Colorado. With his dad on drums and 16-year old Noah Mast on bass, they perform as Young Austin And No Difference.

Austin plays what he has dubbed “Texandrix Blues” a blend of Texas Blues and Hendrix inspired guitar.

Young Austin and No Difference were Semi-finalists in the band competition at the 2010 International Blues Challenge.

How did Austin become so skilled on the guitar. What has he experienced so far and what is he looking forward to in the years to come. All this and music from their album Yesterday Is Gone.

We will take your calls and questions for both guests at 1.347.633.9400.

Come sit on The Couch and meet musicians you should know.

3 Of Your Sparks

  1. Travis Cody Says:
  2. Those Grizzlies just keep on chugging along, don't they? I wasn't surprised that they took down the Spurs. It was a bad match up for SA.

    But if they pull off the upset of OKC, that will surprise me.

    My Lakers are up tonight. I'm thinking New Orleans might have woken them up and they won't come out flat. But this is my Lakers we're talking about, and they may have turned off the juice again.

  3. Unknown Says:
  4. Very productive weekend here at Rancho Bondonio...'bout time y'all come on out!

  5. Jay Says:
  6. Look at all the people on the Grizzlies band wagon! Team plays to a half-empty arena all season long with a TV audience smaller than an infomercial but now? Everyone's a fan!!!! hahaha ;-)~
