MUSICIANS FOREIGN EXCHANGE PROGRAM PLAGUED WITH DEBAUCHERY; & Yet, POP CULTure Not Flatt with Boys from London

Maybe an additional amount of thought should have went into this years Musicians Foreign Exchange Program between POP CULTure and London Flatts.

As the liquor soaked Boys from PC made their way over the pond leaving their main steed, Chaz, behind, 3 drunk yet dapper lads from London made the swap complete. The Musicians Foreign Exchange Program pairs bands by swapping some members for absolutely no good reason while ensuring all they do is party like RockStars. And yet the band is rising to stange and unimaginable heights! Is it possible we have something here? weigh in on the mayhem THIS SATURDAY NIGHT at The Greenville Inn in Chagrin Falls. 

Musicians Bootlick Season 1 Finale Extravaganza Presents; BAND WIVES !! 2/24

They are an undisputed and under appreciated Rock of sanity and stability in every Musicians Life and they've agreed to 'AIR IT OUT Live on the Bootlick. This may be more than we've asked for.

This is unprecedented territory. This may even be pushing it a little too far. Do we really want to hear all the background stories of groupies and everything else in between that Rock N' Roll offers? And the wives of musicians deal with?.... HELL YA! It will make for a great show!!

So join us February 24th for 3 of these moral pillars of Rocks Anarchy; Tricia Stamp(Chaz Amrose' Wife), Jennifer Rush Ayala(Danny Ayala's Wife) and Sharon Samson(Sean Samsons Wife) for stories that maybe shouldn't be shared but will be anyway. Their stage is long overdue and I couldn't be more thankful that they graciously albeit, cautiously agreed. Thank you ladies. Thank you ONCE AGAIN for all you do. And aside from all the stereotypical Rock Indulgent stories to tell, I know there will be a valuable and honest message of love and commitment.

This season 1 finale show will be at The Greenville Inn in Chagrin Falls on February 24th at 8PM.
Season 2 of The MUSICIANS BOOTLICK will start March 16th.

Thank you all for your support of this original endeavor.

Rockabilly Reigns King for Cleveland Musician David Loy on Musicians Bootlick 1/13

David Loy and his band The Ramrods stop by The Musicians Bootlick on January 13th to talk about his 32 year career in Cleveland music and then they hit the stage to play some of his Rockabilly favorites.
In his storied career Loy has opened for The Romantics, Joe “King” Carrasco, Blackfoot, Maggie’s Dream, Jason and the Scorchers, and Bill Kirchen. Getting back to his rockabilly and Americana roots, David Loy and The Ramrods recently opened for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Wanda Jackson. He is a true Cleveland original.
I have a lot I owe to David as he and I spent many gigs together in the late 90's as he carried me musically while I was an up and coming singer and guitar player. In fact he may even be surprised to know that the first gigs I actually played integral guitar on were the gigs we did.
Join us at the Greenville Inn on January 13th as I am proud to feature a night of killer Rockabilly Originals and Covers with DAVID LOY & THE RAMRODS on THE MUSICIANS BOOTLICK.

Local Rockers Light Heartfelt Torch For Fallen Rocker Scott Weiland with STP Tribute

Theres no way to know at this time whether a Tribute to local fallen Rockstar Scott Weiland is the real deal or is it like slowing down at a car crash. Scott grew up in Bainbridge for awhile and attended Kenston. Hmmm...seems ironic vocalist Chaz Amrose who leads the tribute also attended Kenston. Are these Boys for real? Is it too soon? Is this exploitation, Shameless, grandstanding? Where will this STP Tribute go? One thing is for sure, Right here in the epicenter for fans of Scotts music, people want to know and are coming out in a large force to see this initial show at The Musicians Bootlick at The Greenville Inn in Chagrin Falls Tonight! So be inquisitive, be judgmental but I think you will come away tearful from an earnest heartfelt tribute to music that deserves to be played and should live on. At least thats the hope.

Scott Weiland was found unresponsive and confirmed dead on Dec 3rd at 48. He lived in Bainbridge with his Brother Mike, Mother and Stepfather who's name he adopted through grade school and made many friends. we hope some of them will come tonight and share stories and help remember a tortured brilliant soul. 

Should these guys continue an STP Tribute? the band 'Core' is; Chaz Amrose, Sean Sampson, Danny Ayala, and introducing Taylor Netzler on Guitar. We want to know and hear from you! I think we already have a name...
