    #71 Live Shows-Your opinion
    There's always plenty of discussion about the health of live music and its venues. Any town's music scene will have some ebb and flow, certainly. I asked folks on Facebook and Instagram to opine about what makes them decide to go or not go to a live show. Is it venue? Start time? End time? Price? The acts themselves? Quality of publicity? Some combination of all these. We talked about their responses, and gave some thoughts of our own directed to venues, acts, and the General Public. We

    #70 No Time To Hate
    Recently in Lafayette IN (home of our podcast), racial tensions flared due to separate events. There was angry debate, along with substantive discussions. Hate groups had posted racist signs and flyers in prominent places, and two groups were booked to appear locally that many believed to be racist performers. To counter all that, a group of musicians have decided to perform in a show called "No Time To Hate" at the Lafayette Theater.   We spoke to one of those performers, Christopher Lee from

    Mumcast 67 Jason Wells' Big Show
    Jason Wells plays the blues and rock, sells his own coffee blend, runs an open mic night, and generally works his butt off. Which is good for you, since you can see the fruits of his labor on stages across America, and in Lafayette IN on 12/30. His band will perform at the Lafayette Theater with a local band called Graciously Departed (a nice dose of Dead!), and up-and-coming singer songwriter Tara Marlow.  The show will start with Marlow's acoustic music, follwed by the GP and their happy set,

    Mumcast 65 Frank Muffin's Sgt Pepper
    In 1967, we opened our new copy of the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", expecting something brilliant and groundbreaking. Turned out to be much more, as Pepper became one of the most influential albums, not only in the Beatles' canon, but in all of contemporary music.  Members of local Lafayette band Frank Muffin, along with 20 musicians from the community and elsewhere, will be staging that album from start to finish, with extras, December 9, at Lafayette Theater. It's a

    Mumcast 64 To and From the Soul-Charlie and Gail
    Gail Davis and her Unitarian minister husband Charlie make music to and from the soul. They hope to provoke reflection, understanding, empathy, and peace. They are in the middle of a 4-album journey through the emotions, and the effects of modern life on the soul. The second of the four is recently released and entitled "Scared". It addresses not only fear, but the idea of standing up to it with strength and perspective. The album was produced by Michael Kelsey, musician and producer

    Mumcast 60-Three Cities Keeping Rock Fun
    Three Cities is a band on a mission to keep the fun in hard rock. We spoke to Patrick Barry Brown, guitarist for this rock band whose members hail from Indy, Fort Wayne, and Marion, IN. They recorded a live set in May at the Lafayette Theater, in Lafayette, IN. The theater is a beautifully renovated and expertly run music venue that was once an Art Deco style movie theater.    Three Cities' "Live from Lafayette" release consists of a few favorite originals from their previous sets, along with

    Mumcast Ep 56 Cheryl Fletcher- It's About Time
    Cheryl Fletcher is a gifted songwriter from Lafayette, Indiana, which is fast becoming an incubator of amazing talent. Cheryl, after waiting , writing, and maybe a bit of procrastinating, has issued an EP of original music called "It's About Time". We talked motivation, inspiration, and Pokemon Go. On "It's About Time" Cheryl had help from some stellar musicians, including guitarist Jason Wells (soon to be bluesin' up a venue near you) and wizard Mike Kelsey, who played guitar and worked his

    Nicky Kerr's Paper Towns
    Nicky Kerr knew from the start what she didn't want: the picket fence, the Ivy League school, becoming "Suburban Royalty". Her mission is well laid out and accomplished on her new CD "Paper Towns". It's an autobiographical set of 10 tunes, produced by wizard Micheal Kelsey.  She'll perform those songs on May 6th at the beautiful Delphi Opera House (a beautiful, award-winning restored building) with Mike (Tickets and details here).
