He Don't Look Like Elvis

On the Road with an Elvis Impersonator Band He Don't Look Like Elvis is the unflinching, tragicomic true tale of the ups and downs of band life on the low end of the food chain. It's the story of how I became Frankie Stone, a bass player for Elvis impersonator Bobby Love and his band, the Love Machine. 'This is Bobby Love.' After years of too many late-night rehearsals and too few gigs, I knew I would never be a rich and famous rock star. I was through with music and ready to bow out of the whole band scene. Then some guy named Bobby Love called and said he needed a bass player. 'I do fifties, sixties, oldies stuff. And I do an Elvis tribute.' An Elvis tribute … Elvis, the King of Rock 'n' Roll, died August 16, 1977, and into the vacuum rushed a new genre of performer: the Elvis impersonator. Fantasy Circus The band members try to maintain a straight face and an even keel in a traveling rock and roll fantasy circus. It was a fantasy fueled not only because Bobby and the band are capable of some knockout performances but also because the fans could never get enough of the King - alive, dead or otherwise. Audiences know Bobby isn't Elvis but mob him anyway for scarves, autographs and kisses. No Jets or Limos This was definitely not the pampered, plush, rock-star tour deluxe. No jets from city to city, no waiting limousines. This is the working musicians' life on the road playing in dive bars, staying in low-rent motels in small towns, lugging their own equipment and praying that the pickup truck and trailer got them to the next gig in one piece.

Neddermeyer Triumphal March
8,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

Karl Lawrence King (1891-1971) was born in Paintersville, Ohio, and ranks only behind Fillmore and Sousa as the foremost American march composer. King was a largely self-taught musician who learned the cornet early and soon was proficient enough to join the Thayer Military Band. In 1910 he moved to Columbus, Ohio and played baritone horn with the Neddermeyer Band, a professional band led by Fred Neddermeyer. He went on to play tuba in the Soldiers Home Band in Danville, Illinois, as well as in several circus bands, including Barnum and Bailey's, serving as leader of their band from 1917 to 1918. He learned to compose by studying scores, publishing his first composition at age 17 through Charles Barnhouse. Relations became somewhat strained with this publisher, which may have led to his use of the pseudonym Carl Lawrence and his decision to establish his own publishing company, the K.L. King Music House of Canton, Ohio, in 1919. In 1920 he moved to Fort Dodge, Iowa, as Director of the Fort Dodge Municipal Band, and continued his publishing from there. King was a prolific composer, writing over 300 works for band, including 188 marches. He composed mainly for larger bands up to 1940, then after that time primarily for school bands. The Neddermeyer Triumphal March was composed in 1911 as a tribute to his mentor, Fred Neddermeyer, and was published by Barnhouse. This new edition from Richard W. Sargeant Jr. retains King's original orchestration from the first edition (woodwinds, including E-flat and B-flat bass clarinet, SATB saxophones, brass, snare drum, cymbals, bass drum) in an easy-to-read format which is conveniently sized as either a study or performance score.

Comrades 'n' Jazz
8,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Onstage at the annual Jazz Fest in New Orleans, Victor, the bandleader of the Hearts & Souls, gave the signal for the opening number. The dream about a celebratory concert he and his buddies had been waiting for more than forty years had become a reality. During the Cold War, all but one of the seven medical students and jazz musicians defected to the West. There, in freedom and prosperity, they continued their love for the Great American Songbook. After the drummer gave the eight-bar introduction to 'Caravan' by Duke Ellington, a chill went up the spine of the seven Comrades 'n' Jazz. The melody, the most memorable piece from their old repertoire, had always been their signature tune. During their earlier showbiz career in Romania, foreign music had been marred by strict censorship, which they had successfully circumvented by 'Russianizing' the titles of the songs and the names of the American composers. Victor mixed showbiz and medicine lucratively back then, by making a pact with a musically ignorant party hack in charge of their artistic activities on campus. The zealot supervised the dance band rehearsals and public appearances without having a clue as to what kind of music they were actually performing. For years, he remained convinced that the Hearts & Souls paid tribute to the communist dogma. Alas, toward the end of their medical school, the band was exposed for what it really was: a Jazz Band. The party leaders cancelled all future shows on campus, and threatened with further retaliation. But the jazz-loving band members continued their stealth love for the Great American Songbook by joining similarly minded musicians in the professional world of showbiz, far away from the college censors. Local impresarios adopted the seven medical students with open arms, offering them the best venues in the country. Victor and his buddies joined the Music Bourse-Bucharest's freelance musicians market. Its members held secret rallies in public parks or secluded beer gardens, giving birth to an ardent desire to defect to the West, by hook or by crook. The Hungarian Uprising in the late fifties gave the Hearts & Souls' pianist the first opportunity to defect to Austria, through the minefields. A couple of years later, fed up with the tyranny, the bass player and the guitarist took off to Istanbul in a makeshift raft, floating perilously on the Black Sea. Then the trombone played packed his bags and left for Israel, along with tens of thousands of Jews emigrating from the Soviet bloc. The Hearts & Souls' existence came to an end when the clarinetist swam across the Danube River to Serbia, walking all the way to Italy. Not wanting to risk his life, Victor chose to marry a visiting Polish recording star, and was heading to Warsaw. In Victor's last moment on Romanian soil, his old nemesis showed up at the airport, demanding a halt to his departure. Inside an interrogation room, a violent confrontation ensued, and the famous bandleader and freshly-graduated physician escaped from detention. Over four decades have passed since then. The Evil Soviet Empire became a sad chapter in modern history, together with the Iron Curtain. The Comrades 'n' Jazz were now free to play the Great American Songbook's music to their hearts' content. Victor organized a grandiose reunion of the seven brothers-in-arms. Where in the whole world would such a celebration be more appropriate than in New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz?

Famous 22nd Regiment March

The legendary American bandmaster Patrick Sarsfield Gilmore (1829-1892) was born in Ballygar, County Galway, in Ireland, and emigrated to the United States in 1848. He settled in Boston, and soon established himself in the area as a virtuoso cornet player and bandleader, directing the Suffolk, Boston Brigade and Salem bands. In 1858 he founded 'Gilmore's Grand Boston Band' and rapidly earned a reputation as one of the foremost bandmasters in the nation, leading his band on several tours across the country. At the start of the Civil War he enlisted his band in the Union Army with the 24th Massachusetts Volunteers, and shortly afterwards Governor Andrews tasked him with training and organizing all of the Massachusetts Militia bands. After the war, General Banks asked him to organize a peace celebration. Gilmore relished his new role as an impresario, staging the large-scale National Peace Jubilee in New Orleans (1869). He went on to present an even larger-scale World Peace Jubilee in Boston in 1872, an 18-day extravaganza celebrating the end of the Franco-Prussian War and featuring 20,000 chorus members and 2000 instrumentalists, including a number of famous orchestras and bands from Europe. He moved to New York in 1873 to become the bandmaster of the acclaimed 22nd Regiment Band, a position he held for the rest of his life. Gilmore continued to organize and present concerts on a grandiose scale, performing at the dedication of the Statue of Liberty in 1886 and initiating the first 'Promenade Concert in America' - the forerunner of the Boston Pops. In 1888 he and the 22nd Regiment Band started the tradition of the annual New Year's celebrations in Times Square. John Philip Sousa called Gilmore 'the Father of the American Band.' His major contributions to American band music include expansion of band instrumentation, new repertoire, and the popularization of the concert band. Up to the 1850s American bands had been primarily brass marching bands, but with the 1858 founding of his own band, Gilmore began to follow the trend of European bands by adding woodwinds. By the time he and his band toured Europe in 1878 he had expanded his band to 66 members, with 1/3 clarinets, 1/3 other woodwinds and 1/3 brasses, laying the foundation for the present-day American concert band. He also expanded the repertoire by arranging standard classical works for band. Gilmore wrote a number of marches, most under the pseudonym of Louis Lambert. Today his two most popular works are 'When Johnny Comes Marching Home', written after the Battle of Gettysburg, and the the present work. The 'Famous 22nd Regiment March' was written in 1874, the second year of Gilmore's 22 year tenure with the 22nd Regimental Band, and was first published by Carl Fischer in 1882. Later editions were published with amended instrumentation, but in this welcome new edition Richard Sargeant pays tribute to Gilmore's original instrumentation, scoring it for piccolo, flute, oboe, 3 B-flat clarinets plus E-flat and B-flat bass clarinet, bassoon, SATB saxophones, 4 cornets, 4 horns, 2 trombones and bass trombone, euphonium, basses, snare drum, cymbals and bass drum.

Live At The Greek Theatre (Blu-Ray)
18,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Die "Three Kings Tour" im Jahr 2015 erstreckte sich über insgesamt 14 Amphitheater in den USA. Dabei ehrte Bonamassa seine Idole mit einer zweistündigen Show und spielte 22 ihrer schönsten Bluessongs. "Live At The Greek Theatre" zeigt das Tourfinale in Los Angeles und ist als Doppel-CD, Doppel-DVD und 3-LP-Deluxe-Edition erhältlich. Außerdem enthält es ein Collectors-Edition Booklet sowie diverses Bonusmaterial und Making-Of-Szenen. In der lauen Sommernacht spielte Joe Bonamassa vor fast ausverkauftem Haus. Die handverlesene Setlist beschrieb Premier Guitar als "spektakulär". Die LA Times schwärmte von einer Show "voller Swing und Glamour." Er habe die Signature-Licks der drei Musiker perfektioniert und ihnen dennoch sein eigenes, gewisses Etwas verliehen. Bonamassa spielte sowohl Hits als auch weniger bekannte Songs, inklusive "Born Under A Bad Sign", "Lonesome Whistle Blues", "Hummingbird", "Let The Good Times Roll" und natürlich B.B. Kings berühmtes "The Thrill Is Gone". Als B.B. zwei Monate vor Beginn der Tour verstarb, gewann diese eine noch wichtigere Bedeutung für Joe. "Er war mein Freund und Mentor und ich bin traurig, dass er die Shows nicht mehr miterleben konnte." Die elfköpfige Band besteht aus Anton Fig (Schlagzeug), Kirk Fletcher (Gitarre), Michael Rhodes (Bass), Reese Wynans (Klavier, Hammond Orgel), Lee Thornburg (Trompete, Bläserarrangements), Paulie Cerra (Saxophon), Nick Lane (Posaune) und den drei Backgroundsängerinnen Mahalia Barnes, Jade MacRae und Juanita Tippins. Joe Bonamassa trat im Laufe seiner Karriere bereits in der Royal Albert Hall, dem Wiener Opernhaus, der Radio City Music Hall, dem Red Rocks Amphitheater und dem Beacon Theater auf. Mit dem Greek Theatre setzte er seine Tradition, in den außergewöhnlichsten Konzertlocations zu spielen, fort. Die Kulisse ist, wie auf all seinen DVD-Veröffentlichungen, einzigartig. Mit der "Three Kings Tour" führt er seine Tribute-Konzertreihe weiter. Sie begann 2014 mit "Muddy Wolf At Red Rocks", einer Show zu Ehren von Muddy Waters und Howlin' Wolf. Wie schon vor zwei Jahren floss ein Teil der Ticketeinnahmen an seine Stiftung "Keeping The Blues Alive". Die Non-Profit-Organisation, die er 2011 gründete, unterstützt talentierte Bluesmusiker der nächsten Generation, fördert Musikschulen und gleicht den immer weniger werdenden Musikunterricht an öffentlichen Schulen aus.
