The Electric Croude 30th Anniversary Concert Highlights

It was a grand night at our facilities here on November 17, 2015. We had our 30th year anniversary concert for The Electric Croude. And this week on the show (1/16), you can enjoy highlights from some of the most talented musicians around.

Held in our large TV Studio A, it was the end result of months of planning--hiring the best sound company, co-ordinating performers--all sorts of behind-the-scene logistics that make a presentation seem effortless.

Notes from America Vol. 4: The Hyland Family Band

Put a tack on the map for Robin in NYC and one for Phil down here in Richmond, VA -- and another in CA -- connect with strings... we now have a perfect triangle of our current destination. In 1998 they were here in town and I remember how much I enjoyed having them on The Electric Croude. We all have fave songs from artists we like, an instant classic for me was “Little Things”--a perfect snowy winter song for me from their debut Girlfriend disc.

Notes from America Vol. 3: The Nied’s Hotel Band

First off--they are not a hotel band. There is a fascinating story behind John Vento’s project called The Nied’s Hotel Band and that’s explained in this third volume Notes from America--my new open ended mini-series detailing real music--real musicians--across the country.

If you’re new to this, in the first two volumes, we travelled to Texas and in our last round--right here in good ’ol Richmond, Virginnie.

Notes from America Episode 1: Patrick Lee

In the inaugural episode of The Electric Croude series Notes from America, I spoke with Brownsville, Texas musician Patrick Lee. Self-taught in true Lone Star fashion, Lee is a gifted singer/songwriter/guitarist, though his primary instrument is the electric 3 string bass (yes, you read that correctly), played in upright fashion due to a back injury.
