I'm Doing A Pop Up Event On October 24th!

For five years, I lived on Pinecrest Avenue, near Plaza-Midwood. I wasn't there very often, but I have a lot of fond memories of those times. On October 24th, I'll be returning to Pinecrest Avenue, as Stephanie Chesson and I will be hosting a pop-up show at her studio on 1243 Pinecrest Avenue.

Both of us will be selling prints, books, and other items. This will also double as an official release party for the Last Days Of The Double Door Inn book, which I recently released. If there are prints of any subject that you'd like to purchase, please let Stephanie and myself know, and we will have it ready for you. There's lots of space at Stephanie's studio, and if the weather holds up, we will set up outside for your socially distancing pleasure.
Even if you don't need to buy anything, come by and say hello. We've missed you. Spread the word, and hope to see you again soon.

Happy Anniversary Sandra

 And many more.

You know.

Red Rubber Ball 2020 Is Now Out!

 In March of this year, right before the world changed, I helped oversee the Cyrkle's first recording session since 1968. After months of preparation, I'm thrilled to announce that the band's first new single release, their new recording of Red Rubber Ball, is now available. More new singles will be coming in 2020 and 2021, as the band looks towards finishing a new album in the coming year.

Follow the links below to where you can listen to, and purchase the new song. My thanks to the Cyrkle, and all of you that have listened to and supported the band over the years.

Press Release For New Cyrkle Recordings That I Executive Produced

 For Immediate Release 

Sixties Music Legends The Cyrkle to Release New Recordings of Their Greatest Hits!
Opened for The Beatles at Shea Stadium and Candlestick Park!
Studio City, CA – Lightyear Entertainment announces a new agreement with The Cyrkle to release new 2020 recordings of their huge pop hits of the 1960’s. 
The Cyrkle opened for The Beatles at Shea Stadium and Candlestick Park in 1966, and were managed by Brian Epstein and Nat Weiss. They were originally called The Rhondells, but John Lennon suggested that they change their name to The Cyrkle, and they took his advice.
Their biggest hit, Red Rubber Ball, was written by Paul Simon and Bruce Woodley, and rose to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Lightyear will release the 2020 recording of Red Rubber Ball on October 2, 2020.
The band’s other huge hit was Turn Down Day, written by Jerry Keller and David Blume, which rose to #16 on the Hot 100. This has also been newly recorded and will be released through Lightyear in November.
The Cyrkle were offered another Paul Simon song but regretfully turned it down back in the day. But they have finally recorded The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy) now, for the first time, and Lightyear will release it in January, 2021.
The recordings feature original members Don Dannemann and Mike Losekamp, joined by Pat McLoughlin, Mike Shoaf, Don White and Scott Langley.
Lightyear has quietly amassed a collection of big hit re-recordings by the original artists during the past few years, all released through the company’s longstanding distribution deal with Caroline/Universal Music Group. They include Jay Siegel’s Tokens (The Lion Sleeps Tonight), The Searchers (Needles and Pins), Irene Cara (Flashdance…What a Feeling), Rick Derringer (Rock & Roll Hootchie Koo), The McCoys (Hang On Sloopy), Jay & the Techniques (Apple, Peaches Pumpkin Pie), Herman’s Hermits (I’m Into Something Good), the Shadows of Knight (Gloria), the Rip Chords (Hey Little Cobra), Frank Stallone (Far From Over), and the Beau Brummels (Laugh Laugh). 
All of these Legacy Artist deals were facilitated by Rick Levy, veteran manager, music director, band leader, guitarist, and author, who currently tours (when Covid allows) with The Box Tops. Levy was Lightyear CEO Arnie Holland’s college roommate at the University of Pennsylvania.

RIP Wanda Hubicki

Yesterday morning, Wanda Hubicki left this place for her next adventure. She loved music, her family, the Charlotte Folk Society, and all the musicians that she came into contact with. We that knew her are a little more empty tonight, but still filled with the knowledge that she had a positive impact on our lives, and the music that she loved. Safe travels, Wanda. In the sky, Lord, in the sky....
