Harlem Jazz Series - Tony Lewis Trio - Greater Calvary Baptist Church
December 03, 2019 - New York

Tony Lewis is a drummer/songwriter from the South Bronx, New York who has worked with a variety of stellar artists including Little Richard, Sting, Cyndi Lauper, Rakim, Sam Moore (Sam and Dave), Michael Hill's Blues Mob, and Craig Harris.'My defining moment in choosing to play the drums came from watching cats and listening. My dad, who used to play himself, was always bringing home Down Beat magazine so I would look at all the drum ads with Max Roach, Louie Bellson and Ed Shaughnessy of the Tonight Show band fame, Bernard Purdie, Jack DeJohnette, and Billy Cobham. One particular visual for me was watching the movie "The Glenn Miller Story" with James Stewart from 1954. There's a scene where he's performing (or acting like he is) in a little club jammin' with Louis Armstrong. In the club there's another drummer, the great Cozy Cole playing. Another drumming legend Gene Krupa, who played with Miller in real life happens to be in the club. So, the two start playing together on the same kit. While Cozy is sitting down on his own kit, Gene stands next to him playing his floor toms. The way these two got on while playing and created such a lovely little melody/groove on the kit, I w...

A stringent four-chord rule holds sway so joining the session can be as simple as singing/playing from your seat, or if you're a more seasoned instrumentalist, jumping onstage behind host Alex Battle. It all adds up to a convivial blur of expert fiddlers, plucky pluckers, and amateur crooners reprising 'Ring of Fire' or 'On the Road Again.'

This program is produced in partnership with the American Folk Art Museum.Nancy Smith was a single mother of four and a Head Start school bus driving when she was falsely accused of picking up young preschool students and molesting them at her "boyfriend's house, " where they were allegedly molested all day, instead of driving them to school. Her case was part of the "Daycare Hysteria" cases in the 1990s, in which many across the country were wrongfully convicted for concocted daycare molestation at daycare centers funded by Head Start or otherwise had deep pockets that would afford the "victims" hefty settlements. Nancy's case represents one of the worst cases of ineffective representation in the annuls of wrongful conviction cases.

Streetlight Manifesto - The Paramount
December 07, 2019 - Huntington

Of all the various compliments Streetlight Manifesto have received from fans over the years, there is one in particular that seems to resonate most with the members of the band. After a show, a kid in torn jeans and a Pantera shirt, sporting ridiculous facial hair, will find one of the Streetlighters outside of the club and say hello, followed by "Man, I don't listen to this kind of music, in fact I hate most ska bands, but you guys are something else." Or it will be a jazz fan, sitting in the back of the venue during the set,bobbing his head, eyes closed while the band does their thing on stage. Or one of the club's stagehands will comment, while helping break down the lighting rig, that he actually enjoyed a band he was working for for once, despite having heard thousands of bands on the job over the years. And therein lies Streetlight Manifesto's appeal.
