    Materialism Among Praise Guitarists/Jet City Amps

    in Christianity

    Tonight we will discuss a hot topic in the praise and worship scene: Are guitarists getting too materialistic? Are we buying excessive amounts of gear to serve God, or using God to justify our excess? 


    We will also look into Jet City amps and why they are a great value for P&W guitarists with a limited budget. We will also take your calls, prayer requests and discuss general topics.

    KEYBOARDIST BRIAN SIMPSON

    in Entertainment

    Simpson’s latest masterwork is the perfect amalgamation of music that is close to his heart – Jazz, R&B, Funk and Soul. Out Of A Dream (Released February 17, 2015) is Simpson’s sixth album as a leader and third recording for Shanachie Entertainment. “When I first embarked on making this album, I was at a point where I felt I had to take my music to a different place,” explains Simpson who enlists nine different co-composers on the album that keep the sound ever-evolving and fresh. “By collaborating with other composers I was able to explore different styles of writing while still maintaining my own vibe.” Out Of A Dream unites Brian Simpson with an all-star cast including saxophonists Najee, Dave Koz and Grace Kelly, guitarists Marc Antoine and Norman Brown, singer Maysa and trumpeter Maurice Brown, Jonathan Fritzen, among others.

    power of perception with Jimmy Packers

    in Spirituality

    Jimmy is a unique artist with over 20 years in the music industry. He has worked with such artists as Zebra, the Good Rats, Steve Morse, Robin Trower, Blackfoot, Wendy O. Williams, Loudness, Queensryche and producers Nile Rogers and Tom Werman.
    Don't bother looking for a pigeonhole into which Jimmy Packes will fit. He just lives to rock and he rocks out how he wants. Which means he gets heavy with hard rock and metal, lays out the soulful blues grooves and just keeps it real with honest, straight up rock-and-roll energy. Packes packs a sound that sucker punches you in the gut and leaves you bleeding and begging for more.
    Packes has been courted to play guitar for Ozzy Osbourne, Guns N Roses, Never the Bride, Faith No More, David Lee Roth, 21 Guns and others. Touring has carried him across the country and around the world. Packes is also the co-owner of Azimuth Jag Records (New York and London). The UK press declared him one of the leading instrumental guitarists on the globe following the release of his “Axxe to Grind” release and he was also invited to the Montreaux Jazz Festival. He has announced the forthcoming release of new music and is spending time teaching guitar, bass, band classes and vocal coaching at The Music Vault Academy in Southern California. Packes co-owns and is head engineer/producer at Holy Grail Studios at Nyack, NY.  
    “Guitarists at the pinnacle of their craft are few and far between. Let's just say it's been a long time since someone like Packes has come along and there aren't too many like him.”

    Will and Thunder Welcomes Tattermask

    in Rock Music

    Sired by classic rock and modern metal ancestors, Tattermask of Charlotte, NC, commingles melodic relics of Ozzy Osbourne, Led Zeppelin, Boston, and Whitesnake with modern riffage akin to Disturbed, Alter Bridge, Evanescence, and Sevendust to forge a fresh sound in the mire of mainstream active rock. Driven by dual lead guitarists Josh Wright and Travis Dry; powered by tight, expressive rhythms from Adam Blackmon on drums and Harley Quinn on bass; and garnished with vocals from Amanda Caines that go from Pat Benatar to Adele to Evanescence at the drop of a hat, sonic variety is the ultimate goal of Tattermask's catalogue of original tunes.


    The band has just released their latest EP, Carpe Noctem, and they'll be on the show to tell us a little about it, as well as their upcoming gig on the Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour, opening for bands such as The Agonist and Flyleaf; so be sure to tune in!

    FINDING YOUR RIGHT TONE- POPULAR GEAR FOR DEVELOPING YOUR TONE STYLE

    in Music

    Part 1 - The quest for the ultimate tone is a constant struggle for guitarists. I've yet to meet a guitarist who is wholly satisfied with every aspect of their sound. Coaxing a great tone out of your guitar and amplifier is certainly a frustrating experience for most of us - even with great equipment, that "perfect sound" always seems to be just out of our grasp. Let's examine several ways of changing your guitar sound without shelling out wads of coin for a new axe or amp.

    Will and Thunder Welcomes Crimson Storm

    in Rock Music

    Crimson Storm is more than just a band. It is a family, a message, a light shining into the darkness. It is a living, breathing entity...

    In a time, a couple of decades ago when musicians were masters of their weapons. Frontmen had serious force and range. Drummers had huge power and charisma. Guitarists were composing and playing the most impressive, virtuoso, monster guitar riffs and leads the world had ever seen. Bassists shined as stars, and loud as thunder in the stormy sky. Not one had a lazy station. It wasn't considered to be an option. Songs had depth, passion and heart. Those days are alive again!!!

    Crimson Storm began with a vision when founder lead singer Paul Ames was just 18 years old. Crimson Storm had to survive with him through 20 years of hell to get where it is today, its not only a miracle Crimson Storm is a decade long series of miracles. The first song was written in 1995 in a very dark place. In 2000, Paul formed the first incarnation of Crimson Storm. With huge bands he grew up admiring: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica and Stryper. The guys that end up on the bus are not always the same guys that started in the garage.

    There is a storm coming. Can you feel it? Can you hear the sound of thunder in the distance? The sound of the rain beginning to fall. The rain is as red as blood!

    Simplicity Welcomes Drummer Michael "The Mad Hatter" Henderson

    in Spirituality

    Tonight is a tribute show honouring the late great rock blues guitarist, Bugs Henderson. With me tonight is his nephew, Michael Henderson, to talk about some great musical stories.


    The Tyler, TX-raised Bugs Henderson took his cues from the wealth of great roadhouse blues and blues-rock guitarists that were around Dallas, including Freddie King, Johnny Winter, and literally dozens of others on the Texas music scene of the '60s. Henderson has cited James Burton, Ricky Nelson's guitarist, as a major influence.


    Michael "The Mad Hatter" Henderson started playing drums at 6yrs old and got his 1st Band gig at 11yrs old. He then went on to read music in the 7th grade and had played many types of music over the years. He has played with The Gutter Brothers Band in the Late 80s and even Fronted The Outfield at Caldwell Auditorium.
