Welcome to episode 39 of “The Minstral Show”!
expressive line up of great music on this the 39th episode of the
Minstral Show featuring, Greta Van Fleet, Black Country Communion, Son Little,
Dave Kerzner, Exquisite Corp, Tom Moriarty, Peter Case, The Chemistry Set and
Ancient Cities…serving up three sets of the best music being made today while
covering a wide variety of genres from this global music revolution.
up is a young band from Frakenmuth Michigan, “Greta Van Fleet” with their 2017 hard
rockin hit “Highway” taken from their double EP “From the Fires”. If you are a
Led Zeppelin fan hang on to your socks because this band not only sounds like
Led Zeppelin, they beg the question are these new Led Zeppelin tunes? Jaw
dropping rock n vocals with their own unique spirit to mirror past generations
with todays world…Greta Van Fleet are brothers Josh, Jake and Sam Kiszka with
family friend Danny Wagner…these guys really rock!
Greta Van Fleet is super group Black Country Communion with “Wanderlust” taken
from their 2017 Album BCC4…an album that wakes the soul with its rockin mastery
to shake the world and remind everyone that Rock n Roll is here to stay. Glen
Hughes, Joe Bonamassa, Jason Bonham and Derick Sherinian carry the torch and
lead the way in this new age of the global airwaves.
the set is Philadelthia PA’s “Son Little” a.k.a. singer / songwriter Aaron
Livingston with “O Me O My” The version I’ll play today is the 2018 Gavin Moss
Remix version of the same song that originates from Son Littles 2017 album “New
Me O My is a soulful rockin Blues tune that faces the world through eyes that
see…while dancing the weight of that world away through its beat and movement.
A song that has captured the attention of millions of online listeners this
past year. It was an instant hit with me the moment I heard it. Hope you enjoy
concept of our second set of music, is an awakening of sorts to this dying
world of ours that begs us to find a better way to live.
Kerzner opens the set with “Stranded” taken from his 2015 progressive rock
concept album “New World” which is, in my opinion, the best progressive rock
album to come along in over 3 decades. I can’t say enough about this album
except that everyone should have a listen to the entire thing and then go out and
buy it…Dave Kerzner is awesome.
Dave Kerzner is Sacramento California’s Exquisite Corp and their alternative
Rock tune “Broken Petals” taken from their 2014 album Vignettes.
V., ROBBY DEAN, NATHAN WEBB and ADAM RICE remind us that life is short, and not
to waste it. An excellent song with a great message. One of the best from 2014.
out the set is Tom Moriarity with “Finding a Better Way” taken from his 2013
five song EP “Snapshots of Reality”. The EP is well named and a hidden gem from
2013…Snapshots of Reality does just that, as the music and lyrics deliver
satisfying, mellow and meaningful expressions to resonate with the listener.
a Better Way is exactly what, collectively, we all need to do to make this
world a better place.
3rd set of music brings the energetic rock n roll vibes of Peter
Case together with the doo wop pop sounds of “The Chemistry Set” and a retro
70’s pop tune from Ancient Cities. The sounds you are about to hear might
qualify as a time trip to the past. A great upbeat foot tapping set to end the
Shook his Hand” was first released by Peter Case in 1986 as song “A” on a 2
song 7” flexi disc with record label “Nineteen” which was actually a rock 'n'
roll fanzine from Toulouse, France that came with a flexi single inside.
I don’t have a copy of the original one, I do have a wave file which was Recorded
live at The Golden State Theater in Monterey, Ca. on March 30, 2013 with Deep
Ellum…What can I say, this is Classic rock n roll, by a great musician, and
band! Stay tuned as Peter Case Rocks the house down!
Peter is “The Chemistry Set” with International Rescue from their 2016 album
“The Endless More and More”. This song is a real catchy retro doo wop 60’s pop
tune that reminds me somewhat of the exciters, the Monkey’s and the Cookies, as
it captures the nostalgic vibes of those times by the hooks and upbeat catchy waves
within its infectious matrix. Listening once is not enough. Paul Lake, David
McClain, and Dani are The Chemistry Set
out the show is North Carolina’s “Ancient Cities” with their song “Sorceress”
taken from their 2016 album “Super Moon Blackout”.
song belongs in the 70’s sea of pop with songs such as Hitching a Ride by
Vanity Fare, Beautiful Sunday by Daniel Boone and Love Grows where my Rosemary
Goes by Edison Lighthouse…I swear these guys must have a time machine because
they seem to be able to cover a variety of genres and time periods as if they
were there and then to bring back the ambiance and nostalgia of those times
into the 21st century. This is euphoric music for pop freaks like
myself…and I have to say that if this song was released in the 70’s it would
have gone platinum many times over. Hats off to Stephen Warwick, Justin Fedor, James
Dulin, Justin Faircloth, and Matt Branniff of Ancient Cities.
