New Vega makes their second visit to the WYSO studios to perform an acoustic set and share tracks from their upcoming album, Tempo. The band will celebrate the album's release on July 30th at Canal Street Tavern with The Future Laureates and Grenades!?
Nick Kizirnis and John Dubuc began playing together in The Obvious in the 1980s at Canal Street Tavern where Deni Wilson ran sound. Year later, the trio formed the Fair Shakes and their reggae rock alter-egos, The Rude Boys. Here the Fair Shakes perform live on Kaliedoscope and chat with host Juliet Fromholt about their roots in the Dayton Music scene, balancing two bands and upcoming shows.
When Ed. Vs. Radio disbanded, Jason Gilmore and Nigel Verboon decided that they wanted to continue playing together, but they wanted to do something different from the pop-punk style they had been playing together for years. This experimentation led to the creation of We Were Animals and the addition of I Died Trying's Mark on drums. The band has released a two song demo with plans for a full album release in July.
Having gained several new members since their last apperance on Kaleidoscope, Starving in the Belly of the Whale returns to the WYSO studios to perform some new songs. A fluid lineup of players joins frontman Ricky Terrell onstage and on the new album the band just finished recording. The album is set to be released later this summer and will be free as are the band's previous releases. Here the band discusses plans for the rest of the year and how their writing and recording process has evolved to accommodate a rotating lineup.
Host Tom Duffee talks with local bluegrass band the Corndaddies about the formation of their band, the fun of being street performers, and the importance of live music. The band sings about steel drivin' with their rendition of "John Henry" and answers the burning question, "What occupation will never lose their job to a machine?" Listen to find out!
