Los #3 Dinners
Once upon a time, two young pregnant mothers to be lived in the same apartment building. This was the first time Lenny and Bart met, then again at Longfellow Jr. Hi. Years later, Joe, Rudy and George Horner met at Woodlawn Elementary School. Sometime in 1965 Lenny met Joe surfing at Port A. 1966 saw the collision of chaos at Jefferson High School with Lenny, Joe, Bart, Frank, George and Rudy. The common threads of Beatles and Stones and Rock N Roll, riding the bus downtown to Joskes and The Texas Theater, Jefferson Village and Silvey Music Store, driving around and countless other things forged an unbreakable bond. High School parties at various places brought forth guitars, drums and mayhem. In the seventies with some in and out of college and in and out of the army there became a need of creating music.

John Mark McMillan is something of an anomaly. From the very beginning of his career, nearly a decade ago, his music has defied easy categorization. A singer-songwriter as interested in musical exploration as lyrical exploration, McMillan carved his own path from the outset—with an ear for melody with a poet’s eye for metaphor—no topic was off-limits: death and love; isolation and exultation; restlessness and silence. And always consistent—an ongoing dialogue with God, ever-wrestling for some kind of blessing and usually at volumes most suited for rock clubs. Now ten long years in, McMillan released Borderland, his fourth studio album and arguably his finest, on March 4, 2014. Borderland is indeed something rare—the sound of an artist staking a claim in the no-man’s land of contemporary life, intent on finding heaven there. Make no mistake, Borderland is the musical statement of a songwriter at the height of his powers; one who has made a career of rejecting easy categorization and defying expectations, and this album is certainly no different.

In that time they sold over a million albums. Cody Canada has returned to vintage Corss Canadian form, seizing the opportunity to take the lead of his four-piece band, The Departed, with newly energized inspiration to get back to his roots.

Raucous, rowdy, gentle, sweet, eccentric, quirky, and outright irreverent are all words that fittingly describe Tas Cru's songs and testify to his reputation as a one of the most unique of bluesmen plying his trade today. It’s not for nothing that Cru has received wide praise for his songwriting. As Downbeat magazine notes, "His songs are blues poetry - crafted with rare verbal flair and his ability to cast a memorable hook is magical!" Bruce Iglauer, founder and president of Alligator Records calls Cru “a rare, real writer.” Live, these songs are performed with power and passion as observed by Living Blues magazine, "The vivacity and sheer joy with which Cru plays is intoxicating!" His current album, “You Keep the Money,” is the hottest debuting blues album of 2015. Released December 30, 2014, it has been either at or near the very top of every major blues chart through mid-May, 2015 and is still getting extensive worldwide airplay. It actually debuted at # 1 on the Roots Music Report and eight of its 12 songs have been in the top 25. According to Cru’s radio promoter, Frank Roszak, this had never before happened in the history of his career as a publicist. The album debuted on the prestigious Living Blues chart at #2. Blues djs and reviewers agree that this album shows Tas Cru “at the peak of his formidable talents as a performer and songwriter.” - Graham Clarke
