As I blogged a while ago, Denro and I will be at Andrew Sandoval’s British Invasion show at the Wilbur Theater in Boston on February 26. Something that I am enjoying more than pretty much everything else these days is Sandoval’s “Come to the Sunshine” podcast. Here is his latest edition, featuring Gerry and the Pacemakers in the second half of the show. Unfortunately, Gerry Marsden can’t join the British Invasion tour, but he’s there in spirit.
This is the second time I have posted a video with Kate Davis, who has already cemented her future as a New York jazz club attraction, and I bet we’ll soon see her with the Boston Pops.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! “One if by land, two if by sea, three if by music!” Andrew Sandoval‘s British Invasion Tour is coming to Boston! Thursday, February 26th. Denro and I will be front and almost center at the Wilbur Theatre to see and hear Peter Asher, Chad & Jeremy, Billy J. Kramer, Denny Laine (is in my ears and in my eyes) and members of the Searchers and the Hollies. This is going to be a fab show, for sure!
Four years ago (FOUR?) I posted Slade’s 1973 recording of “Merry Xmas Everybody“. Slade kept another Glam Rock Christmas record from reaching the top of the British Pop charts that year, from Roy Wood’s band Wizzard.
A couple of months ago I did a post with some Nick Lowe songs. Terry Gross had Lowe on Fresh Air yesterday.
Hearing Lowe’s new song “Christmas at the Airport”, it reminds me somewhat of the more recent compositions by Neil Innes.
