    LIVE:Chesapeake Bay Reggae Fest Pre show- International Stars Tuff Lion & IBA

    in Music

    A veteran of countless live performances and tours as a bandleader or sideman over his long career, Tuff Lion’s recording presence has “finally” begun to blossom with the access that home recording studio systems afford the masses today. Undeniably, he has risen from near obscurity to many V. I. producers’ “A” list. You may also see his name credited on some recordings to performances on other instruments such as, bass, keyboards, organ, drums and some backing vocals. This is indicative of the depth of his musical scope. “I-Man play instruments for the sake of music, not the other way” says the graciously humble Tuff Lion, noting that he “really only practices” on the guitar.
    Iba (pronounced: 'Eye-bah') was born Charles "Chucky" Encarnacion on May 7, 1970 on the island of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. As the son of a musician, Iba was indoctrinated into music at a very young age and his passion for knowledge led him to embrace the teachings of Rastafari in his formative years. Over time and thru much diligence, Iba became lead singer of St. Croix's Front Line Reggae Band and quickly became one of St. Croix's celebrated singers.   In 1995, life and mother nature (Hurricane Marilyn) intervened in this burgeoning career and Iba relocated to Connecticut, USA. In Connecticut, Iba kept at his passion by fronting the Survivor's Reggae Band for the next 3 years.

    Crack in the Shell, founded by James McFadden (Bass/Keyboards) and Daniel Alan (Vocals) in 2010, cannot be pigeonholed into just one musical category. CITS show variety both musically and vocally, ranging from punk to rock to psychedelic in style. Comprised of veteran players from TN. to CA. to Lebanon, the band's sound is as diverse as their background.   


    CITS have been making a name for themselves, and have played as direct support for The Gin Blossoms, Winery Dogs, Don Dokken, Bret Michaels, Geoff Tate, Lou Gramm, and more.  


    Crack in the Shell are currently putting the final touches on their video for “After Life,” and finalizing their third release ‘I Am Alive.’

    CHRIS JASPER (ISLEY BROTHERS) WITH LAMONT KDIDDY PATTERSON 2

    in Music

    If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you know Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, CHRIS JASPER, an
    integral member of THE ISLEY BROTHERS during the 1970s and 1980s—their gold and platinum years—from the 3+3
    (1973) to Between the Sheets (1983) albums. These were the years when THE ISLEY BROTHERS were a self-produced,
    self-contained group.
    If you are familiar with THE ISLEY BROTHERS, then you have heard the music of CHRIS JASPER, who was primarily
    responsible for writing, arranging and producing all of THE ISLEY BROTHERS music during this time, including such
    beautiful love songs as “For The Love of You” and “Between the Sheets” and uptempo funk such as “Fight the Power.” His
    arrangements and instrumentation as a classically-trained musician, and his expertise on the keyboards and synthesizers, are
    the foundation of the legendary “Isley Brothers Sound.” When the six members of THE ISLEY BROTHERS disbanded
    (1984), Marvin and Ernie Isley joined CHRIS JASPER and formed ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY. Without this crucial musical
    component, THE ISLEY BROTHERS were no longer a self-produced, self-contained group.
    CHRIS JASPER brought his “unique sound” and musical talents to ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY, and topped the charts singing
    lead vocals on “Caravan of Love” (1985), a song that was covered by English recording group, the Housemartins, an
    international #1 pop hit. “Caravan” was also used in commercials as part of a Dodge Caravan advertising campaign. He was
    also awarded a CEBA Award For Excellence for a Miller Brewing Company commercial. The music for that commercial
    formed the basis for “Brother to Brother” from the “Different Drummer” album, which supported the anti-apartheid struggle
    going on in South Africa at that time.CALL IN #347-308-8747

    Interop Radio: End Users Look at Network Performance

    in Technology

    It's easy to take a deep dive into the tech end of the network performance pool, but what does it all really mean for the end users? Ping times, collisions, congestion, jitter, latency: Do any of them make a difference when someone is waiting for their accounting application to respond?


    Our guests on today's episode know what matters in network performance -- and why. Panagiotis Vouzis and Panickos Neophytou of NetBeez have developed tools that monitor network performance from the end-user perspective and give network admins insight on which aspects of the network matter to the people behind the keyboards. NetBeez is part of this year's InteropNet. We'll talk with Panagiotis and Panickos about which components of network performance matter the most and why an end-user perspective can be a critical tool in network management.


    Join us for a great episode on network performance: Your network users will thank you for investing the time!


    Interop 2015 will take place from April 27th through May 1st at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. More information and registration details are available online!
