    Singer, Keaton Simons RETURNS!

    in Entertainment

    Keaton Simons is truly what the Los Angeles Times called “a triple threat.” He captivates audiences with his compelling, soul-baring songs, masterful acoustic and electric guitar playing, and authentic voice. The energy and passion that Keaton brings to his work, whether in the studio, performing solo or with his full band, is as infectious as his lyrics and as stirring as his melodies. Keaton Simons released his sophomore full-length album, Beautiful Pain, co-produced with Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, One Republic), and soap fans, over 20 of Keaton's songs have been heard on CBS Daytime's "The Young and the Restless" over the last few months as well! We will be discussing how this album has exploded into daytime and new fans worldwide.

    Frank Bang, Sterling Koch, Sena Ehrhardt & Keaton Simons

    in Music

    Frank Bang spent 5 years touring with Buddy Guy, has played on stage with Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews and Carlos Santana to name a few.  He released 4 albums, and then took time off to raise his family. Now he and his band Secret Stash are back making music.  His latest album is Double Dare and will be released on May 21. Frank will join me to discuss his life, career and new album, while we listen to some tunes.  
    Sterling Koch is a nationally recognized lap steel guitarist who is a touring/recording solo artist and session musician. Sterling specializes in playing Chicago-style, slide guitar blues in a contemporary style on the lap steel guitar. His latest album, Let It Slide is a collection of some sweet music.  After years of playing guitar, Koch was told he need to stop once a herniated disc was found in his neck.  Foregoing surgery Koch decided to take up the lap steel.  Frank joins me as we discuss his career and listen to his music.
    Sena Ehrhardt grew up in Minnesota with a blues-loving, guitar-playing dad, so it is no surprise when she followed in his footsteps into music.  Her first album, Leave The Light On, earned her a Blues Music Award Nomination for Best Debut Artist. and now, her second album, All In, was just released and it shows the growth she has gained in her songwriting, playing and singing. Produced by the great Jim Gaines, Sena and her band explode through 11 excellent tunes. I will chat with Sena about her life and how much it has changed in the last year and where she is headed in the future.
    Keaton Simons joined me back in June of 2012 to discuss his debut album.  He is releasing his new album and bringing it to The Couch with him.  This young man plays music of different genres, but it all falls under the GOOD STUFF label.

    Dad Makes Wheel Chair Bound KIDS COOL for Halloween

    in Culture

    Ryan Weimer is on a Mission and its to make sure that kids in Wheelchairs have an unforgettable experience at Halloween. His organization, Magic Wheelchair is a nonprofit that makes epic Halloween costumes for children in wheelchairs

    I say EPIC, I mean EPIC!!! There will not be a kid big or small who will not be envious of the amazing, incredible, imaginative and spectacular costumes Ryan builds at  Magic Wheelchair, transforming wheelchairs into AWESOMNESS and at no expense to their families. The costumes are only limited by Imagination and we all know imaginations can be LIMITLESS, RIGHT?

    Each year, children ( with their parents permission ) submit a one to 3 minute video explaining to the organization what they want to be for Halloween and why they should be chosen to receive a costume.

    Out of all the submissions, five kids are chosen to receive an incredible costume that is guaranteed to put a smile on their face.

    So, how did this come about? Ryan Weimer and his wife have five children, 2 of whom have SMA, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, making it impossible for them to walk. Sadly two others passed from this disease, however In 2008, when Ryan’s  eldest child Keaton received his first wheelchair, his father asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween? Keaton answered, "A Pirate"

    This is where it all started. Like any parent Ryan wanted to please  his kids so he made an AMAZING Pirate ship. Ryan wanted his kids to be seen as superstars, not someone to be pitied.
