Live on WVBR 93.5 FM Tuesdays with the Band

 

Today features Johnny Dowd. So if you start with a rock base, add a bit of punk and run it through a gritty synth filter, here is where you’d end up. Check out his album “Twinkle Twinkle” below and listen with us today from 6-7 pm!

 

 

Johnny Dowd: working on a new record

Johnny Dowd is working on his next record. Too early to tell what it will sound like at this stage, but it will see the return of Kim Sherwood-Caso:

Hello good people. Working on a new record. Pretty early in the process, but so far it’s sounding like a grungy garage rock thing, circa 1965. My buddy Mike Edmondson laid down some nasty guitar tracks, and I tracked some vocals yesterday. Speaking of vocals, I’m going to get my old singing partner Kim Sherwood-Caso on this record. Sort of a return to Wrong Side of Memphis, nice and raw. Anyway, that’s what it’s sounding like at this point. Don’t hold me to it.

A Night for Nicholas Hill @Casita Del Polaris

 

Nicholas Hill (or Hickory to some) suffered a stroke in the beginning of April and has been traveling the long road to recovery since. His family plans to provide for him the best in rehabilitation services. Please support the effort to help Nick on his journey by coming to A Night for Nicholas Hill.

 “I have done his radio show a bunch of times. He’s a real fun guy to be interviewed by because he knows a shit ton about music. He’s the kind of guy that really keeps music alive. Musicians need people like Nick – he makes the local musicians feel like they are doing something worthwhile.”

 – Johnny Dowd   / 14850.com 

The evening will feature numerous Ithaca area singer songwriters playing original music and celebrating Nick. Performers will include Jennie Lowe, Mary Lorson, Johnny Dowd, Richie Stearns, Anna Coogan, Jen Cork, Angie Beeler, Bert Scholl, Pierce Walsh, Jai and Jonathan Meyerhoff, Polly Wood, Janet Batch, and others. This is the opportunity for all who love Nick to come together and support a truly special member of our community. $10 suggested donation.

Rock the Dock WVBR Benefit

I don’t care man. I really don’t care why. Like I said, I would have gotten naked AND had a hot dog eating contest tonight if it would bring in people.
