Brotherly Love Productions is at it AGAIN! This time, it’s PURPLE HATTERS BALL, taking place from May 10-12th in Live Oak, Florida. You may remember the location from the epic rage-a-thon that was AURA Music and Arts Festival a few weeks back. Rest assured, this one will be just as off the chain!

Lettuce, The New Mastersounds, Quantic, The Malah, Dubconscious, and many more are slated to perform. Tickets are on sale right HERE and they are about as inexpensive as it gets for such a crazy lineup!

Interview with SHWIZZ from Catskill Chill 2012

*** This was a live interview with Shwizz during Catskill Chill 2012, completed while they were setting up for a late night open cabin jam. Great bunch of guys in it for the right reason. It’s a quick one, so give them a moment of your time. You may just find yourself a new favorite act!***

Interview with Jeff Lloyd from THE HEAVY PETS (@theheavypets)

 

The Heavy Pets rolled through Syracuse, NY again on September 19, and it’s always good to have the Floridian reggae/jam/rockers back in Upstate, NY. Their youthful energy is a great way to help bring in the weekend, even if it’s only Thursday. I’m always down to get things started a day early, and having T.H.P. here to provide the soundtrack suits me just fine.

Review of CATSKILL CHILL 2012 – Camp Minglewood, Hancock, NY

Camp Minglewood in Hancock, NY was the spot to be at from September 7-9, as tons of acts, fans, and hoola hoop enthusiasts from all over descended upon the humble, quiet town to celebrate this year’s installment The Catskill Chill festival. I’ll admit Destiny, both my own and my lovely contact at Brotherly Love Productions, crept up on me unaware, because I had never even heard of the Chill beforehand. But that was a mistake of my own doing, because the 3-day event is definitely something I will attend next year, crazy weather and all. The sold out show brought in crowds from miles around all anxiously awaiting a weekend of hip jams, bright lights, and a super friendly atmosphere.

Interview with John and Gabriel from Consider The Source. Playing @CatskillChill next weekend!

“Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Funk, ” as New York City’s Consider The Source describe themselves, kind of makes me think about Bootsy Collins riding on the Millenium Falcon hovering over Saudi Arabia. Seriously though, can’t you just visualize it? Maybe not, but if a power trio takes this much effort to define their sound, I can only imagine what their rehearsals are like. I’m sold.

Consider The Source’s mystique lie in their multi-directional approach to writing, a fusion of complex rhythmic patterns, partially learned when the group spent time studying talas in India, with a blend of driving rock, psychedelic sound scapes, and Middle Eastern flair. The group continues to forge their path into the musical spotlight, performing at a very wide array of venues and festivals all over the world. These appearances include slots at Burning Man, PowWow, and Dogwood Fests alongside such acts as Victor Wooten, Wyclef Jean, Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, and many others. Read More…
