Hailing from Yellow Springs, the members of Soul Rebels combine reggae, funk, jazz and rock and roll influences to create that sound with a distinct groove and lyrics with a positive message. The band visited the WYSO studios to perform a live set on Kaleidoscope and chatted with host Juliet Fromholt about how they came together and found their sound.
It's an evening of firsts as Kaleidoscope broadcasts its first show from the new WYSO studios. Tim Pritchard and the Boxcar Suite (Tim Pritchard, Phil Caviness, Tony Moore and Trevor Bell) are the evening's guests performing the first live set in the new building ahead of their first public performance at Side Show 7 on May 12, 2012 at the Yellow Cab Building in downtown Dayton. The band performs an acoustic set and previews songs from their album, set to be released in late May.
What started off as a short video for his church turned into a feature length documentary project for Shane Pergrem. Here Pergrem discusses the process of making The Almond Tree, his first feature film and where the process has taken him as an artist. He's joined by longtime friend Ricky Terrell of Starving in the Belly of the Whale, who composed the soundtrack to the Almond Tree. Terrell talks about scoring the film and shares several live and recorded songs.
