David Michael Miller
- Poisons Sipped -

CD Review - By Bob Silvestri
bobsilvestri@bestofwny.com

David Michael MillerAs a writer sometimes you just can't find the right word or phrase to say what your thoughts are. I know that as an outspoken jerk some may find that hard to believe. With the slew of concerts and music we are constantly bombarded with even the redundancy of the same tired adjectives and a dog eared Thesaurus are of no use. Such was my dilemma after listening to the latest release from David Michael Miller titled Poisons Sipped. As front man for Dive House Union Miller steps into the spotlight and delivers an astonishing album full of soulful bluesy jams and Southern fried soul. Miller and his band The Other Sinners (Carlton Campbell-drums and Daric Bennett-bass) are augmented by a slew of gusts including two other Campbell Brothers (Darick Campbell and Chuck Campbell), Jim Ehinger, Barry Arbogast, Ron Davis, Serena Young, Jasmine Neeley, Ashley Brown, Jesse Miller, Stephen Jacob Mclean Jr. and Jason Moynihan. The twelve tracks are inflected with rock, blues, Gospel and soul for a unique and timeless sound.

As stated in the album notes the twelve songs are "treatments to soothe the soul". Standout tracks include the rocking "Hand Me Downs", the jazzy "Edge of the End of the World" with a hot sax break from Arbogast, "Moving On", the Southern blues of "Memphis Belle", "Once" and the soulful and churchy "Moonshine". The pristine recording was done at The Strand and Redbooth recording Studios with Dave and Jesse Miller doing a first rate production job. Poisons Sipped is clearly one of the best albums of 2014.

Noah Gokey & The Skulls
- Dream American -

CD Review - By Bob Silvestri
bobsilvestri@bestofwny.com

Noah Gokey & The SkullsThe latest offering from Noah Gokey & The Skulls titled Dream American is a seventeen song opus/suite theme blend of California Laurel Canyon sound with a healthy dose of current Americana flourishes featuring little to no breaks between songs. An ambitious project combining razor sharp electric guitar lines over acoustic background melodies all performed with virtuosity by band members Corey Hagstrom (vocals/ guitar/harmonica), Kyle Daunce (guitar), Bill Nelson (drums) and Rob Schmarder (bass). Keepers include the harmonica rave up "Stand In", "King Bus", "Even Better", the percussive driven "Pregressive", the up tempo rocker "Nope" and "404". The album was recorded, mixed and mastered over the course of a few months in 2013 at Shangri-La Studios in Buffalo.

Davey O
- No Passengers -

CD Review - By Bob Silvestri
bobsilvestri@bestofwny.com

Davey O, No Passengers,The title of the latest album from acclaimed singer songwriter Davey O, No Passengers, refers to the fact that he is the only person to perform on the record handling all the instruments and vocals. Davey wrote six of the seven tracks here with the lone cover being a haunting and sparsely arranged version of "Long Black Veil". This also marks the first release without his longtime collaborator Jeffrey Winston Mikulski who passed away early this year. The songs all stand out as Davey's writing over the years has been fine tuned. His ability to sketch a vivid character or moment with memorable lyrics and melodies to match has been honed with his relentless performing and touring schedule. He has grown into a very fine performer with a wisdom, maturity and knowledge of his craft.

Davey recorded the disc over two days at Fox Run Studios in Sudbury, MA. with Neale Eckstein manning the knobs. What they got was an honest and raw emotional recording very similar to Davey's live shows. Standout tracks include the afore mentioned "Long Black Veil", the romantic and introspective "The Song I Wrote", "Standing in These Shoes" and "The Main Street" a commentary about our times. No Passengers is another outstanding release from Davey O a premier writer and performer. For more information about Davey O and his latest release No Passengers check out www.daveyo.com

Grace Blues Project
- self titled -
CD Review - By Bob Silvestri
bobsilvestri@bestofwny.com

Grace LougenI first saw Grace Lougen play guitar when she was in Grace Strumberg's band and they opened a show in Toronto for a band I happened to be working with at the time. She seemed shy and unassuming as she set up her gear but when the show stated she played with ferocity and confidence and impressed all in the crowd with her chops for such a seeming young lady.

Now she has released her first album titled Grace Blues Project a collaboration with Lougen and some of the brightest talent on the local and national scene today including Jerry Livingston, Toney Rhodes, Carl Johnson, Bob James, Michael Petrino, Muscle Shoals guitarist Will McFarlane and Howard Fleetwood Wilson and her regular band mates Caleb Saathoff, Ben Saathoff, Alimany Bader and Linnea Crimean. The disc kicks off with "Swampy" and true to its title the instrumental follows on a hot swampy blues riff. The Texas Blues style shuffle "Across The Border" lets Lougen show off her muscular swagger on the guitar with some slick fret work as does "Direct Inject" another killer instrumental with a big rhythm and a big guitar solo. Lougen takes a turn on vocals on the track "The Blues" and emphatically states that "the blues chase the blues away". Amen sister! Lougen also has four of the brightest woman singers from our area adding vocals on the album with Emmi James on "Enough", Grace Stumberg on "Traffic", "Fresh Air" featuring Savannah King and Bethany Fonda on a cover of George Harrison's "Isn't It A Pity". Of the ten tracks on the disc Lougen wrote or co wrote eight with the others being the Harrison cover and one penned by Bob James. The Grace Blues Project is a great debut from a very promising and talented Grace Lougen. For more on the Grace Blues Project go to www.graceblues.com

CD Review - By Bob Silvestri
bobsilvestri@bestofwny.com

CrashfuseCrashfuse has released its first full length album titled Between You, Me, And The Lamppost featuring twelve well crafted hook laden alternative power pop and rock songs. The band (Chad Hornberger -Vocals/Guitar, Colin Eberhardt -Drums, Nick Wnuk -Bass and Mike Butler -Lead Guitar)was recently a top three finalist in the Hard Rock Rising band competition sponsored by Hard Rock Café and has had their music featured on radio stations in the US and Australia. With attention to details Between You, Me , And The Lamppost offers up a palette of quirky chord changes, bridges and other ear candy to keep the listeners attention. The disc starts off with "Out of Lives" followed by the slinky Reggae beat of "Sweet Routine". "Crossroads", "Fall On Your Feet" and the ballad "Oh, Apologies" all score here as does the spacey instrumental "Interlude" and the sonic guitar anthem "Watch Me Fall".

Menew
- Mother Nature -

CD Review - By Bob Silvestri
bobsilvestri@bestofwny.com

MenewBesides Tin Horton's, Labatt Beer and hockey one of the many advantages of living in close proximity to Canada is the Canadian and Ontario music scene and radio. Many of these artist regularly visit the Queen city and make it a second home and a must tour stop.

The latest of these is the Cambridge, Ontario outfit Menew (pronounced menu) and their release Mather_Nature a thirteen song collection with unique interactive artwork and more. The band composed of three brothers, (Shade-vocals/guitar, Key-piano/synths, Nathan Samuel Phillip-drums/backing vocals with Jesse "Wilfur" Filice on bass) has an earnest anthemic alternative rock sound not unlike U2 or Coldplay but with enough differences to keep the listener engaged. Quite a few good tracks on this one including the lead off track "Solar Sunrise", "Used to Be Easy", "In My Room" and "Sight to See". The band really shines on ""Firechild" with its percussive beat and on "Rise Together" an almost Springsteen-esque tune that shoots for heights of grandeur.

CONCERT REVIEWS
Steely Dan
Events Center-Seneca Niagara Casino
Niagara Falls, NY- August 8th, 2014

Concert review by Bob Silvestri-
bobsilvestri@bestofwny.com

Walter BeckerThose preeminent hipsters Walter Becker and Donald Fagen collectively known as Steely Dan rolled into the Events Center at the Seneca- Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, NY on August 8th, 2014 for a stop on their Jamalot Ever After Summer 2014 Tour. Their jazz rock sound has been praised and vilified over the years and while they may not be everyone's cup of tea their body of work consists of numerous radio hits, essential albums and most of all it remains timeless.

Tonight's show, sold out for weeks in advance, would feature a bevy of hits and a few deep cuts all from the '70's and 80's era but nothing from the last few albums by the band or any solo material. Now before anyone gets their knickers in a knot let me say that Steely Dan are one of my all-time favorite band's and I began my love affair with them around 1973. I have also seen the band live in concert numerous times over the years but tonight was not one of their better performances at least for me. The show seemed a bit scripted and slickly produced to be free of any errors or spontaneity. It lacked heart or emotion and was per functionary. The between song patter and individual solo all were performed on cue and are sure to be nearly the same on each stop of the tour. A lot of that on any of the big tours today has more to do with the amount of computers used in the lighting and sound leaving the artist little room to improvise even if they wanted to do so. That being said I did however enjoy the show.

Donald FagenThe band kicked off the nearly ninety minute show with "Cubano Chant" a Latin tinged number that showcased the amazing rhythm section of Keith Carlock on drums and session ace Freddie Washington on bass. The duo found a groove they would mine all evening. Then Becker and Fagen casually strolled on stage to rapturous applause from the audience followed by three female background singers (Cindy Mizelle, La Tanya Hall and Carolyn Leonhart-Escoffery). The ladies would prove to be a very bright spot of the show especially Mizelle who is fresh off a couple of jaunts around the world with Bruce Springsteen and The E-Street Band. Becker/Fagen and band proceeded to glide through four of their biggest hits "Black Cow", a beautiful version of "Aja", "Hey Nineteen" and "Black Friday". But the real surprise and the best part of the show came next. Three tracks off their second album Countdown to Ecstasy "Show Biz Kids", "Razor Boy" and "Bodhisattva" gave all three women and the four piece horn section their chance in the spot light with a stellar "Time Out of Mind" and a slinky "Daddy Don't Live in that New York City No More" with Becker handling vocals sandwiched between the CDTE songs.

They headed for the finish line with "Josie", "Peg", "My Old School" and a lengthy "Reeling in The Years" that had the crowd standing, singing and rocking out to their high school memories. The band returned for an encore of "Kid Charlemagne" one of their classic hits. Being able to hear Fagen sing the classic lyric "Is there gas in the car? Yes, there's gas in the car" alone was worth the admission price. The band played a vamp out as Becker and Fagen bid adieu and sent the crowd out to the casino floor.

The Goo Goo Dolls
Bear's Den, Seneca Niagara Casino
April 12th, 2014

Concert review by Bob Silvestri-
bobsilvestri@bestofwny.com

The Goo Goo DollsThe Goo Goo Dolls made a triumphant return to Western New York to begin a series of three shows spaced out through the end of summer. First up was an acoustic show dubbed The Otis Midnight Sessions at the Bear's Den at the Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, NY on April 12th, 2014 before a sold out crowd. The band is currently in the midst of a three week sold out tour playing smaller venues in an unplugged storyteller's style. The band is surrounded by a host of back up musicians including ace sessions drummer Kenny Aronoff and Run River North a Los Angeles based band. The two hour show is not an acoustic show actually but a stripped down show from the sheds and hockey arenas the band normally plays. At times there were ten or eleven musicians on stage including John and Robby.

Seated on stools center stage and playing acoustic guitars and bass throughout the performance the Goo's looked relaxed to be home and be themselves. Shout out to family members, stories about awkward brushes with famous celebrities bantering with the crowd and a self depreciating sense of humor showed they are still Buffalo boys even after traveling the world. The set consisted of a mix from their latest release Magnetic and earlier and later career hits and fan favorites.

The Goo Goo DollsThere were many memorable moments during the twenty song set among them the band's bigger hits "Name", Black Balloon", "Slide", "Broadway". While "Two Days in February" and "We Are The Normal" from earlier in their career pleased those who have followed the band since the beginning. Another bright spot were the cuts from Magnetic including "Slow It Down", "Happiest of Days", a stunning vocal by Robby on "Bringing OnThe Night" and "Rebel Beat" that had the entire crowd rocking on their feet. They closed the set with the hit song "Iris" before coming back to perform "Become" for an encore.

The Goo's have come a long way from the dingy Buffalo dive bars where they carved a reputation to the international hit making machine of today. Their metamorphosis has been amazing turning from young punk wanna be's to a top concert draw who also regularly reside at the top of the charts.

Jay Z
First Niagara Center - Buffalo, NY
January 30th, 2014

Concert review by Dylan Kallay-
(bestofwny.com teen reporter.)

Jay Z - First Niagara Center Buffalo NYOn Thursday January 30th The First Niagara Center and the citizens of buffalo that bought the tickets were able to witness quite a show. Jay-Z is a multi-million dollar entrepreneur, Grammy winning artist, producer, founded the popular record label Roc Nation, he even owns his own sporting agency (Clients include: Robinson Cano, Victor Cruz, and Kevin Durant). Despite all these responsibilities of the 44 year old, he still writes, comes out with albums (Magna Carta Holy Grail came out in the summer of 2013,) and tours. The Magna Carta World Tour took a stop in Buffalo, so 125$ later I tagged along with a packed house at the FNC to witness one of my favorite MC's perform and I wasn't disappointed in any sense of the word.

Jay Z - First Niagara Center Buffalo NYThe seats I had were great. I was eye level and very close to Jay-Z despite the fact they weren't floor seats. The concert was supposed to start at 8:00pm but there was almost a one hour delay, fortunately there was a DJ to fill the gap and kept us busy. But when HOV finally appeared he put on a show. I don't remember the whole setlist (you could probably find it online), but it was versatile. He opened with "U Don't Know" to set the tone for the entire show. He did his classics as well as his new stuff that kept me off my seat and rapping along to the lyrics. Even though Jay-Z has an estimated net worth of $500 million that keeps on growing, he performed like he was trying to get a record deal, he performed like he had nothing to lose. The way he performs he definitely earns his pay. At one time during the concert he performed "N***** in Paris" then "Tom Ford" then "PSA" in succession. The entire FNC crowd was livid, including me. Playing 3 of his most popular, upbeat, tracks. Everyone was hype, throwing up their dynasty signs cheering for HOV. The Whole crowd got a lot of energy from Jay-Z, and Jay-Z got a lot of energy from the crowd, it was a cycle that kept the concert going. He did "Run This Town" before walking off stage. But the FNC wanted more. Cheering for an encore, Jay-Z came back out and fittingly did "Encore" along with introducing his live band he brought with him. Each band member did their own little solo to show off their skills, which was really cool. Then the final songs he did were "Empire State of Mind" celebrating New York, two classic songs with "Izzo" and "Hard Knock Life." Jay-Z ended it with "Forever Young" which was a song he used in tribute to the late Nelson Mandela. They turned off all the lights in the FNC and told the crowd to light the place up. Everyone brought out there camera lights and lighters to illuminate the place. It was like staring into space. After all that, the concert was over. It was an experience I'll never forget to say the least.

Everything about the concert was perfect, Jay-Z's performance, the crowd, the music as a whole was flawless. If you're a fan of Jay-Z or of hip-hop in general and didn't go to the concert, you missed out. I personally need to see Jay again, the way he gets into his music you can tell that he really cares about his craft.

Monday Night Mistake-
Monday Night MistakeWith a fresh adult alternative style Monday Night Mistake stands out from the carbon copy sound of most bands these days. Founded in 2009 the original two piece collaboration of Frank Tierney(guitar/vocals) and David Pfeiffer (vocals/guitar) tinkered with their sound until they honed it into the current six piece outfit (Mike Lindstrom (drums), Cameron Powell (guitar), Cliff Obrist (keyboards) and will Tierney (bass).
With a couple of outstanding gigs around town including at the Town Ballroom and The Waiting Room, Monday Night Mistake could have a bright future.

B Side Dubs-
The B-Side DubsTaking no prisoners and pulling no punches are the B-Side Dubs a psychedelic cornucopia of rock, electronic and alternative sounds all pinned down by a fierce Reggae dub beat. Beside a plethora of local gigs the band manages to play a significant amount of festivals and the constant touring has made them a very tight musical outfit with a sizable following. Hard to believe, real musicians making real and incredibly good music these days.

Brimstone Blondes-
Brimstone BlondesDrawing inspiration from 60's pop, garage rock and Surf music are the young Turks in Brimstone Blondes Matthew Danger Lippman - Lead Vocals/Guitar/Keyboards, Joseph Scrinchin Barth - Drums/Vocals, Alex Mersinger - Bass/Vocals and Jacob Cohen - Violin/Guitar/Vocals.

Go to www.divehouseunion.com for more information.
Handsome Jack-
Handsome JackWith a musical sound that was forged from the sticky floor of the legendary Mohawk Place when the stage was still in the front for you young whippersnappers is Handsome Jack (Jamison Passuite - Guitar/Vox, Joey Verdonselli - Bass/Vox, Phil Allport -Organ/Guitar and Chad Salmeri- Drums). Many a summer Thursday night the best band in town wasn't the headliner at the Square it was Handsome Jack peeling the paint from the walls of the Mohawk after the Square shows had ended. You can almost still smell the hot dogs cooking out front of the place. While their sound has mellowed somewhat the band forges on releasing new material and playing wherever the road takes them.
