Whole Notes - April 19, 2010

Spring has sprung and thank heavens for that! Here in New England we are still drying out from all of the rain we've had. I hope that everyone is getting to enjoy
some good weather. Well, this is the first newsletter since T-Bone's passing...he is so sorely missed, I still can't believe he is gone. I hope everyone got a chance to catch the latest Live From Daryl's House last week. It was a wonderful show and great to see the entire band having a fab time. Looking back, I am certain the fellas are glad to have the memory of their last performance with T-Bone saved forever.

I know some folks out there were able to make it the the show in Austin, TX on March 27th....being the first show with the new lineup I know they were glad to see some familiar faces in the audience. The tour officially kicks off on April 24th in Atlanta, GA at the Chastain Park Amphitheater. Todd Rundgren will join the guys for that gig...a special treat for sure!! Well, enough of my editorial garble...let's get on with the show!!

NEW WEST COAST DATES - Some new tour dates have surfaced on the web for 2 California gigs as well as one in Richmond, BC. The inside skinny is that H&O will be on the west coast for a little over a week in late September. Catch the guys on September 24th @ the River Rock Casino and Resort in British Columbia. AAC tickets go on sale Monday April 19th @ 9AM local time. See the AAC Tickets page for further info!

In CA you can find them at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga on September 27th and the Table Rock Casino on September 29th in Friant, CA. Only the Mountain Winery show has been confirmed by the H&O camp and as always dates and venues can change. I should mention, however, that tickets for the Mountain Winery show go on sale on April 26th via the venue website. No word yet as to when and if AAC pre-sales will take place.

LFDH WEBBY NOD - That's right kids, LFDH.com has been nominated for Webby awards in two categories...both MUSIC and VARIETY! You must register with the site prior to voting. There have been some reported issues with the voting buttons and links...but they are working on fixing the problem. The LFDH Crew has put together a great GUIDE on the voting process. Now, what are you waiting for?....get over there and start voting!!!

Ooh, and don't forget to tune in on May 15th for the tribute to T-Bone! There are going to be some amazing guests paying homage to Bone.

7908' THE ASPEN SONGWRITERS FESTIVAL - John is teaming up with The Wheeler Opera House for 7908' The Aspen Songwriters Festival beginning September 16th through the 19th. John is working with the City of Aspen and is acting as the executive producer for the event! There are going to be some amazing artists taking part in this fest! Artists will be announced as we get closer to the event. This is a DO NOT MISS kids!!!!

UNTITLED DARYL SOLO ALBUM - Big D is currently in the studio recording his 5th solo record. Word on the street is that he is looking for a release date sometime in late 2010. Daryl is currently signed to the Verve label which currently boasts such talent as Jamie Cullum, Katharine McPhee, Diana Krall and John Fogerty among many others. No word yet as to what genre this album will lean towards. As we get additional details we'll be sure to fill you in!

JOHN OATES SOLO ALBUMS - John is currently working with 429 Records on a Blues/Folk album...possibly one of each. He began working with them during the recording of The Village which is a tribute album to the music of Greenwich Village NYC during the 60's. You can check that album out HERE.

LIVE AT THE APOLLO THEATER ANNIVERSARY - This Summer marks the 25th Anniversary of Daryl and John's historic performance at the Apollo Theater with Temptations, David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks. John mentioned in a recent interview that there may be the potential of an commemorative re-release of the famed concert. As fans we can only hope that this comes to fruition AND that they add in some behind-the-scenes footage!! Fingers crossed. I should also mention that this July 4th also marks the 25th Anniversary of The Liberty Concert! (Wouldn't a double DVD set be just what the doctor ordered??)
