Hits from Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and Jethro Tull to Feature in PTPA's CLASSIC ALBUMS LIVE by BWW News Desk Jan. 6, 2017
Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts (PTPA) is proud to present a new concert series, "Classic Albums Live," which will showcase your favorite classic rock albums with a local spin. New York metropolitan and Long Island based musicians will perform some of the world's greatest albums on the Patchogue Theatre Main Stage in their entirety.
Patchogue Theatre will debut its first show of the series, "Classic Albums Live: Volume 1," as it's titled, on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. The first show will feature albums from Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Jethro Tull. Opening the show, Patchogue Theatre is pleased to welcome Eddie Ayala to the Main Stage for the first time to play a selection of songs from "Aqualung," the fourth studio album by British rock group Jethro Tull.
Ayala has been a part of the Long Island music scene for decades, performing interpretations of classic rock songs and his own terrific songs; all delivered with powerful vocals and dynamic acoustic guitar playing. He has played "Live in the Lobby" several times and now he will help launch our new concert series, "Classic Albums Live," by playing a handful of songs from the classic Tull album. About Jethro Tull's "Aqualung"
Released in 1971, "Aqualung" is the band's best-selling album, known for the singles "Hymn 43, " "Locomotive Breath" and the title track, all staples on rock radio to for decades.
Something of a departure from the band's previous work, the album features more acoustic material than previous releases. "Aqualung" was generally well-received critically, and has been included on several music publications "best of" lists. Following Eddie Ayala's set, Long Island tribute band Pink Flaw'd will kick off the concert series by performing Pink Floyd's critically acclaimed and best-selling eighth studio album, "The Dark Side of the Moon," in its entirety.
Pink Flaw'd is not your typical Pink Floyd tribute band. Comprised of members of several Long Island bands, the musicians of Pink Flaw'd wanted to see if they could pull off performing the "exacting" and "sonically lush music" of English rock band Pink Floyd. This "rare" musical effort began in 2013, and not long after the band was invited to perform "Live in the Lobby" at Patchogue Theatre. The result was captivating and crackled with live energy, which is why Patchogue Theatre has invited the group to perform on the Main Stage as part of its new concert series focused on local interpretation of classic studio albums.
Pink Flaw'd is compromised of Kevin Griffin on the guitar and vocals, Tom "Groney" Gronenthal on guitar and vocals, Mike Katzman on keyboards and vocals, Jim Fontana on bass, and Russell Steadman on drums. For the group's "Classic Albums Live" performance, the band will also feature Justin Marks on saxophone, along with vocalists Annie McInerny, Amy Stahlin and Crystal Zagarello. About Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon"
Pink Floyd's eighth studio album, "The Dark Side of the Moon" was recorded at Abbey Road in London, and released March 1, 1973. The English rock group used some advanced recording techniques at the time, including multi-track recording, analogue synthesizers and snippets from recorded interviews with Pink Floyd's road crew and philosophical quotations provided by others were featured throughout. "The Dark Side of the Moon" was an immediate and long lasting success, staying on the Billboard charts for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988, with 45 million copies sold worldwide. "Albums We Love" is a collection of local musicians hailing from various Long Island music projects. Every year for the past four years, they've gotten together to painstakingly learn and meticulously re-create a classic rock album.
For their Patchogue Theatre debut performance, "Albums We Love" will bring to life the classic Led Zeppelin album, "Led Zeppelin IV," with Bill Donnelly on the drums, Daniel Donnelly on the guitar & vocals, Mike Finno on bass, Cassandra House on vocals, Steven Lucas on the guitar & vocals, Michele Martin on vocals & percussion, and Damien Pagan on the keys, horns & vocals; along with some special guest musicians to join them on stage. About Led Zeppelin's "Led Zeppelin IV"
Led Zeppelin's untitled fourth studio album, commonly referred to as "Led Zeppelin IV," was produced by Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page and released in November 1971, selling over 37 million copies worldwide. In addition to lacking an album title, the cover featured no band name, as the group wished to remain anonymous and to avoid being pigeonholed by the press. "Led Zeppelin IV" was a commercial and critical success, featuring many of the band's best-known songs, including "Black Dog," "Rock and Roll," "Going to California" and "Stairway to Heaven." Tickets for "Classic Albums Live: Volume 1" are available online, by phone or at the box office. Ticket prices range from $19 to $34 plus a ticket service fee.

22 October 2017| 20:07 In the Rosseltalhalle Erzrock series in the footsteps of Jethro Tull
Großrosseln. (al) After the premiere with an unplugged program at the Alter Bahnhof Völklingen, the Erzrockreihe will soon crash again as usual: Lautstark with a tribute band, which dedicates their musical work to a well-known and popular model. Andreas Lang Playing a band called "Thick as a Brick," it can only be a formation that tracks the British band Jethro Tull around the Scottish singer Ian Anderson. Jenem, who always makes the flute sound between his vocal parts, which then quickly became the hallmark of the band.
It is clear that the silver-colored instrument also plays a part in the most famous piece of the Tulls: "Locomotive Breath". And so "Thick as a Brick" describe their role models: "Jethro Tull is a progressive rock band. For many, it is the progressive rock band at all. "In addition to breathing the locomotive, they still call" Aqualung "for the many, many pieces that Ian Anderson's troop became more and less famous. In 45 years of band history more than 30 albums have been created. This includes "Thick as a Brick" as a concept album, in which the title song epic extends over both sides of the vinyl disc.
"We as the Erzrock are looking forward to presenting Thick As A Brick, the only tribute band in Germany, to dedicate themselves to the work of the band with the cross-fiction in detail, with tremendous fun at work and highest quality," says Jürgen Heisel as organizer.
In addition to the well-known tribute bands, Heisel keeps the bands of the region in view. This time, the old-fashioned "The Sixties Revival", well-known in Völklingen and the surrounding area, is a source of warmth for a spirited evening.
Tickets for the Erzrockfestival on Saturday, October 28th, from 8pm in the Rosseltalhalle Großrosseln are available in advance for 18 euros at Ticket Regional, the advance sale is already running. Tickets are also available at the evening box for 21 Euo.

Großrosseln. A lot of flute, a lot of rhythm - the group Thick as a Brick transformed the Rosseltalhalle into a seething cauldron. Well-known title of the world famous band around Ian Andreson enriched with jazz, blus, rock, the recipe was released. Saturday night, Rosseltalhalle, Erzrock - that much flute has never been. The Sixties Revival Band is heating up, and Thick as a Brick, a well-known German cover band for Jethro Tull, is bringing the pot to a boil. It is remembered: founded in 1968 by Scotsman Ian Anderson, Jethro Tull set striking landmarks in terms of progressive gait. Measuring yourself against the original is one thing, bringing the sound of the early '70s to digital acceleration, the other. Thick as a Brick masters the bridge, wins the audience in the Rosseltalhalle (at the standing concert as anno dunnemal) in the hand-draw. "Aqualung" we hear, "My God" too, "Locomotive Breath", "Song of the woods", "Winds up - when I was young" and of course "Thick as a Brick" in long version, and so on.
Much of it starts relatively harmless, with piano intro of the playful bourree style à la Johann Sebastian Bach, as a medieval-playful shepherd's game, as a "sinister dancer" or as a melancholy Scottish folk song. And before you know it, the mail goes off!
The band plays with moods, changes the tempi like models in the wardrobe, brings some feeling to the game, a little jazz, a bit of ballad, but then there's Hard Rock on the ears. Musically demanding, with glissando, using minor keys, with distinctive vocals, "Flatterzungenflöte", fierce guitar riffs, profound bass, driving drums, emotional piano part, and the audience in the not even overfilled Rosseltalhalle goes with enthusiasm. Rule rights Mitklatsch-Arien! Dance! And text! Must know, or read, go, translated, something like this: "In the dizzying panting of the locomotive, the pistons screech. The train is racing unstoppably, no chance to slow the pace. Children jump off, parents throw their hair. "On this Rosseler evening the music of Jethro Tull, the sometimes melancholy text passages from the pen of Ian Anderson, revived here beautifully, to the metaphor for our today's accelerated age. Wonderful concert for lovers of handmade Rock'n'Roll with the flair of the special, through the many influences of classical, blues, folk, world music. Not easy to play, quite well done here. Compliment!

Where are they from? I tried a google search, but it looks like there is maybe another (country rock?) Jethrosexual band??? Weird. Sounds good though!
Hi Ron, The front man in the band is called Kalle Mattila who is from Finland so I reckon that's where they're all from
This is from Kalle's Youtube home page..
Finnish guitar/bass/keyboard/sax/flute player, singer, church music student in the Sibelius Academy, ineffectual songwriter and terrible amateur filmmaker. Previously known as EmersonsL100 (my badly recorded piano cover of Gentle Giant's Experience is even mentioned on the band's official home page! Proof: www.blazemonger.com/GG/EmersonsL100 )
40 BANDS TAKE STAGE THIS WEEKEND TO HAVE THEIR TALENT RECORDED LIVE MUSIC FEST By Sara Matthis -January 3, 2020
Mark your calendars for this weekend: it’s the third Conch Records Music Video Fest on Friday, Saturday and Sunday — Jan. 3-5 — at Marathon Community Park. The purpose, according to organizer Cliff Rydell, is a chance for local bands and musicians to create either a demo reel or a music video. The incredible side benefit goes to music lovers: a $20 admission fee gives everyone access to more than 40 bands over the weekend.
“There will be more than 100 musicians playing continuously on two stages,” said Rydell, of Conch Records, who is also the founder of TV88. “The Florida Keys has a lot of highly talented musicians, like Blues Hall of Fame inductee Jersey Slim.” The festival benefits two local nonprofits: the Marathon Wild Bird Center and St. Columba’s Hammock House. The bird center is moving from one side of Crane Point Museum to another and renovating the facility. Hammock House serves local children with after-school care and special activities for school vacations.
“Boy, I wish I had a place like Hammock House when I was growing up,” Rydell said. The festival welcomes an incredible range of musicians. Upper Keys local Dave Feder is known for his classical guitar skills. Shana Gaskill plays the cello. All three bands who were finalists in the Best of Marathon contest — Pine Billies, Stone Crabs and Fiddle Rock — will also make an appearance.
“Have you ever heard Ray West play the flute? He sounds just like Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull,” Rydell said. “West was one of our early supporters when we started bouncing around ideas for a music festival. I told him we could do it, but only if his band, Windpower, could dress up as Jethro Tull and so Marathon Community Theatre’s costume department is helping out.” Rydell said he’s also excited to see son-and-father duo Marc and Christian Davis play together. “Everyone knows and loves Marc, but his son Christian is one of the most talented guitarists on the planet.” Friday, Jan. 3 5 p.m. Opening Ceremonies 5:40 p.m. Billy Brown Band 6 p.m. Ukuleles in Paradise 6:40 p.m. Marian Joy Ring 7 p.m. Rachel Grace 7:40 p.m. Mike Bailey 8 p.m. Moose & Bulletproof Blues Band 8:40 p.m. Lower Keys Rock ‘n’ Reggae Band 9 p.m. “Jethro Tull Tribute” with Ray West 9:40 p.m. Kim Jade & The Good Thing 10 p.m. Simply 7d

stormsongs: Hi. Newbie, first time here as I have a question I can't get an answer to......I have a vivid memory of buying Lifes a Long Song in 71 and it had a gatefold sleeve....but I can't find any evidence of that or a copy with that sleeve...
Jun 12, 2020 14:25:44 GMT
maddogfagin: Welcome to the JT Forum stormsongs. Not seen a UK Life is a long song gatefold sleeve but there's no doubting they may have been some overseas releases issued this way.
Jun 13, 2020 6:14:41 GMT
futureshock: So, IF you are musical yourself, what are you doing with the CoronaCoda lockdown experience and maybe extra personal time available to find or create more music, or explore instrument playing? How has dealing with musicians changed? Gigs? Spinoff ideas?
Jun 14, 2020 23:01:49 GMT
maddogfagin: Listening to a lot of concert recordings via CD and finding some great music on youtube which I've never heard before. My days of playing guitar are behind me these days due to my damn fingers not wanting to work properly.

steelmonkey: Would you like to hear a perfectly constructed, note,rhythm,lyrical and atmosphere piece of Tull perfection? Yes? Try 'Saboteur' on 'Under Wraps'. Flawless.
Jun 22, 2020 21:05:43 GMT
maddogfagin: Under Wraps is an often maligned album by a minority but to the majority it stands amongst the finest of their eighties output. A great album.
Jun 28, 2020 6:43:28 GMT
steelmonkey: Under Wraps is sui generis. Strong everything. Something(s) about it amaze and astound with each listen.
