[Recommended] Ryan Montbleau Band, October 3rd, The High Noon Saloon

I have always been a big fan of the mix tape.  When you listen to the same album for too long all the songs start sounding similar and then all sort of meld together and sometimes a little variety is needed.  I like to change it up to keep my interest.  The Ryan Montbleau band has saved me the time and energy of making my own playlist by doing it themselves.  To try and categorize this band would mean a lot of time spent head scratching and mind changing.   One song is funk, then another is country, the next is folk and then they hit you with reggae.  “I'm not one of these people who say 'Oh, we can't be pigeonholed,” says Montbleau “It's all over the map, but it's all us, and we do it all wholeheartedly.”   The bands intriguing instrumentation and proficiency mixed with Ryan’s unforgettable voice and profound lyrics make for remarkable music, no matter which type it is. Ryan started writing and performing music while he was attending Villanova University.  He had a solo career performing at the Boston House of Blues and releasing some albums.  The assortment of the current band was by no means a preplanned affair.  Ryan had only a vague idea of what type of sound he wanted and grabbed guys who helped him fill that evolving vision.  Enter Matt Giannaros (acoustic upright bass, electric bass) Laurence Scudder (viola), Jason Cohen (piano, organ, clavinet, Moog synthesizer) and James Cohen (drums).  Since the groups first collective release in 2006, One Fine Color, they have also released other albums such as Patience on Friday and Stages: Volume II all while playing upwards of 200 gigs per year. Fresh off the release of Martin Sexton produced Heavy On The Vine, Ryan Montbelau band will be performing right here in Madison at the High Noon Saloon! The show is this Sunday night at 8:00pm. So take your mind off of the approaching case of the Mondays and close your weekend out with a great show.

World's Worst iPod: Brighter Side of Darkness "Love Jones"
The song "Love Jones" by Brighter Side of Darkness would probably have long been forgotten, had Cheech and Chong not done a parody version of the song. The group, made up of Chicago high school students, scored a top 15 hit with the song in 1973, but...

The cool thing about Coastal Carolina's coach
This won't be enough to make you root for them, but Coastal Carolina's Coach has some pretty cool musical stuff on his resume. Back in the 1960s, when Cliff Ellis was in college, he was in a garage band called the Villagers, and they cut a...

World's Worst iPod: The Power Station "Some Like it Hot"

World's Worst iPod: England Dan and John Ford Coley "We'll Never Have to Say Goo
When someone says to you "Sappy 70's music," I bet you automatically think of England Dan and John Ford Coley. They had a lot of "soft rock" hits during that decade. We put ED and JFC in the same category as Seals and Crofts, Bread, and later--Air...

World's Worst iPod: Martika "Toy Soldiers"
For some reason, the song "Toy Soldiers" by Martika just made Jonathan & Kitty feel really, really old. The song was #1 for two weeks in 1989 for Martika, who started out in show business as a child actor. She had an uncredited role as an orphan in...
