SHELBY LYNNE CELEBRATES A SOULFUL CHRISTMAS ON A FESTIVE 61ST LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE SET FOR DEC. 13 PALLADIA PREMIERE

 
SHELBY LYNNE CELEBRATES A SOULFUL CHRISTMAS ON A FESTIVE 61ST LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE SET FOR DEC. 13 PALLADIA PREMIERE

Daryl Hall and Best New Artist Grammy winner join on six-song set, including original holiday numbers from their respective Christmas albums, as they stuff a roast goose



NEW YORK, Dec. 11, 2012—It’s that time of the year, as Daryl Hall conquers his head cold to celebrate the season in a series of Christmas duets with former Best New Artist Grammy winner Shelby Lynne on the 61st and latest edition of Live from Daryl’s House, the critically acclaimed, award-winning web-to-cable series. For this special holiday episode, Daryl and Shelby join in a “delta blues-meets-Philly soul” throwdown, featuring a half-dozen performances—four songs from their respective Christmas albums, Daryl Hall and John Oates’ 2006 release Home for Christmas and the singer-songwriter’s 2010 set Merry Christmas, as well as a pair of Lynne originals. The show, now available via over-the-air syndication, will premiere on Viacom’s high-definition music channel Palladia Dec. 13, then will be available on www.lfdh.com on Dec. 15.



”She’s a really interesting singer and songwriter,” comments Daryl, who says he’s wanted to have Lynne on the show for awhile. “And even though she came up in Nashville, I think she’s a great soul singer. She means every word that comes out of her mouth.”



“I loved hanging out with Daryl and the guys in the band,” enthuses Shelby. “Daryl is as amazing a person as he is a singer. I was honored to go to his place and make music. Daryl's Place will stay around a long time because it's all about the integrity of the artist and the music."



Lynne first broke through at the age of 18, when her demos landed her an appearance on TNN’s Nashville Now series. Her 1999 breakthrough, I Am Shelby Lynne, led to a Grammy for Best New Artist. She followed with critically acclaimed albums Love, Shelby (2001), Identity Crisis (2003) and Suit Yourself (2005). She made her acting debut playing Johnny Cash’s mother in the Oscar-winning Fox Searchlight movie, Walk the Line. Just a Little Lovin’, her tribute to Dusty Springfield, came out in 2008. In 2010, she founded her own label, EVERSO Records, a move that has given her the freedom to release music on her own timetable. Her EVERSO debut, Tears, Lies, And Alibis, dropped in 2010 and was followed by Merry Christmas (2010) and Revelation Road (2011). In November, she released a deluxe edition of the latter, which also includes her first-ever live album, recorded this past May at McCabe’s Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, along with a Live in London DVD and a documentary on the making of the album.



The two perform a pair of songs each from their Christmas albums, including the Shelby Lynne originals “Ain’t Nothin’ Like Christmas” and a bluesy “Xmas,” the latter Daryl terming “one of the darkest Christmas songs ever written,” with lyrics like “Holiday cocktails make me forget/The gifts that Daddy never opened.” The set also includes the original title track to Hall and Oates’ Home for Christmas, as well as a spirited cover of that album’s Robbie Robertson-penned “Christmas Must Be Tonight.” They also tackle Lynne’s “Leavin’,” a song from her I Am Shelby Lynne album, and “Bend,” from Love, Shelby, the latter given a rousing Philly International soul treatment that proves Hall’s assessment of the self-described southern girl’s ability to sing R&B.



To top off the performances, Daryl and Shelby join chefs Eric Gabrynowicz and Stephen Mancini, from local Armonk, NY-based Restaurant North, to cook up a roast goose dinner, including braised red cabbage, squash soup, pears and a watermelon grown in Hall’s garden, with Shelby doing the honors stuffing the bird. The conversation was also lively, with Daryl admitting the trappings of the holiday season like “elves and homeless Santas,” freak him out, while a discussion of musical authenticity draws this priceless Shelby Lynne observation; “There’s no air-conditioning for the blues.”



The past six years have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street before garnering an O Music Award from MTV two years ago.



Along with airing every Thursday night at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on Viacom’s high-definition music channel Palladia, Live from Daryl’s House is syndicated nationally by Good Cop Bad Cop Productions. Executive producers for the show include Hall along with his manager Jonathan Wolfson.



The 60 previous episodes of Live From Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Jason Mraz, The Voice’s Cee Lo Green, Joe Walsh, Booker T and the MGs, Blind Boys of Alabama, Rob Thomas, Train, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Toots Hibbert, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Keb Mo, Dave Stewart, Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump along with newcomers such as Nick Waterhouse, Rumer, Chiddy Bang, Allen Stone, Nikki Jean, The Dirty Heads, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Mayer Hawthorne, Eric Hutchinson, Chromeo, Matt Nathanson, Parachute, Plain White T’s, soul diva Sharon Jones, Diane Birch, L.A. neo-R&B party band Fitz & the Tantrums, hot new alternative band Neon Trees and veteran alternative mainstays Guster.

DARYL HALL AND INDIE SOUL/R&B NEWCOMER NICK WATERHOUSE HIT THE ROAD FOR 58TH AND LATEST EDITION OF LIVE FROM DARYL’S HOUSE SEPT.

NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2012—Daryl Hall continues to unearth promising new and emerging talent on his critically acclaimed, award-winning web series Live from Daryl’s House, now available on over-the-air syndication and Viacom’s high-definition music channel Palladia, and this month is no different. For the 58th edition of the show, Daryl welcomes breakout soul/R&B newcomer Nick Waterhouse, a native Southern Californian, who has received raves for his independently released vinyl 45, “Some Place,” on his own Pres label. The latest episode premieres Sept. 15 at www.lfdh.com.

Daryl and the 25-year-old singer-songwriter perform a rollicking cover of Ray Charles’ “Hit the Road Jack,” along with Hall’s “Problem with You,” the final track on his recent Verve Music Group solo album, Laughing Down Crying. The two also join in on Waterhouse’s breakthrough single, “Some Place,” as well as three more originals in “Say I Wanna Know,” “Time’s All Gone” and “If I Want Trouble,” from his upcoming album debut, Time’s All Gone. Everyone then gathered for an intimate Maryland-style crab boil, cooking up, then enjoying, a meal of Baltimore crab rolls and crab cakes.

Waterhouse, whose retro vocal style and stylized look has been compared to original rockers Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly as well as neo-soulsters Mark Ronson, Mayer Hawthorne, Amy Winehouse, Charles Bradley, Allen Stone and Sharon Jones, was pumped to be part of Live from Daryl’s House. “Playing and hanging out with Daryl was simultaneously beyond belief and totally natural… just playing music. Any nerves I had went out the door eight bars in when I saw that we were all in the same pocket.”

He also added: “Daryl’s a real soulful, smart cat, and was totally open and warm as a host. The man, the band, and his whole family really showed me a great time, something I will remember for days and years to come.”

For Nick Waterhouse, it all began with a single vinyl 45, “Some Place,” which he recorded with “a band of twenty something kids” and sax player Ira Raibon, a veteran of some of the same bands which produced the kind of lost classics that the singer-songwriter attempted to emulate. The release sold out shortly after it was released, and now changes hands for upwards of $300 on eBay for the rare copy. A fan of “vintage, over-modulated R&B…a time-honored tradition that evokes the back-alley thrill of New Orleans, Detroit and Memphis in their heyday,” Waterhouse recorded on magnetic tape direct to mono on the same Gold Star Studios lathe once used by Phil Spector and the Beach Boys. “The important thing to me was I did everything myself,” he says. “On my own terms—the way I wanted.” The subject of a June GQ profile and photo spread, Waterhouse begins a tour Sept. 26 in Denver , CO , which runs through Oct. 21 in L.A. at the El Rey Theatre.

Daryl found he had a lot in common with his LFDH guest. "We really bonded over our love of vintage R&B and soul. Nick’s a real scholar of this music, and it turned out to be a great match.”

The past six years have marked a steady stream of superlatives and recognition for Live from Daryl’s House, with Hall receiving a Webby Award for Best Variety series from more than 10,000 entries at the 14th annual ceremony at N.Y.’s Cipriani Wall Street before garnering an O Music Award from MTV last year. A live version of Live from Daryl's House, featuring Hall and previous show guests Sharon Jones and Allen Stone, just finished its own national tour dates.

Live from Daryl’s House is syndicated nationally by Good Cop Bad Cop Productions. Executive producers for the show include Hall along with Daryl Hall manager Jonathan Wolfson.

Live from Daryl’s House is being shown weekly in over 80% of U.S. homes in the nation’s top 200 media markets. Along with the syndication, episodes of the show can be seen on Viacom’s high-definition music channel, Palladia, every Thursday night at 11 p.m. (ET/PT).

We, here at Hall and Oates Forever, are encouraging our fans to show us your fan pics! Every fan has a story and we want to hear them all!

Today I'll share mine, along with a review of the show I went to, the one at the St. Augustine Ampitheater on 4/10/2009.





This was truly the best day of my life.
Mike (my boyfriend) did a drive by, he drove by the Ampitheatre and dumped me and Irene off at 3PM. We went to where we were supposed to meet "Uncle Dave" and a lady came out and told us the M&G had been changed until 4PM. So Irene and I were left to amuse ourselves for a half hour. We watched Charlie drive himself into the parking lot and circle around a few times then leave. Irene was debating was it Charlie or not, I think she sort of knew it was him but wasn't sure-I guess we were expecting him to come on the bus with the others. A big gust of wind came and knocked off a park workers hat so Irene was kind enough to chase it down and give it back to the worker. Lets see, oh, yeah, we heckled another park worker. He was a trainee and the trainer told him stay in the cart, do not move. Well, soon as the trainer rounded the corner the trainee got up and was walking around. Well, you know Irene and I couldn't let that pass unnoticed!
We also phoned a few friends with updates while waiting!
So 3:30 comes and we come to realize that we are the only two people there. We get to debating how many other people will show up for the M &G. Being as it was supposed to start at 3:30 originally, we were wondering where everyone else is? So we went up to the ticket window and made friends with the ticket lady. We asked her where everyone else is. She said so far Irene and I were the only two on the list! OMG! Us two alone with the band and D & J? So that kept us busy for a while, debating who was getting Daryl to themselves! Not that John is unwanted-he's married and Irene and I aren't "homewreckers", you know what I mean!
Finally Uncle Dave came and let us in. First thing we did was a potty break because we certainly didn't want to be interuppted later on! Then we had to sign the usual paperwork mumbo jumbo. We got a real nice tour of the stage, we were allowed on the tourbus, Irene was taught how to lock the tour bus door, and as much as she tried to weasle the combo to get into the bus from Uncle Dave, she couldn't get him out of him. We saw the car John drove in in, and Irene saw a $1.00 laying on the back floor-isn't it funny the things that amuse people! Oh, yeah, some uniformed guy, I think it was an EMT?? walks by and gives us a "Hey, girls" type thing and smacks the back of Johns car with his soda bottle. We didn't let that go unnoticed either. We were debating whether we could "take him" or not, and Irene had just finished saying "yeah, I can take him" when Uncle Dave came back from stashing the cookies he had weasled out of the catering hall. Good thing for that or that EMT would have been going to the hospital in the back of his own ambulance!
OK, this is too freaky. We were sitting in the empty arena watching the sound check and Everett comes stolling up to say hi. He gets within speaking distance and points to me. Well, I have never met him before and I know I can't be in trouble with him, hell, I had only been there for about 15 minutes, and granted I can get into it with the best of them but even 15 minutes isn't enough for me, and besides I know better than to pick on people 2X my size! He points to me like he knows me from somewheres and the only thing I can think of is either my personal Facebook page or the HOF Facebook page because that's the only place I have my personal photo. I used my dancing kitty avatar over here, so I know it's not from here. So I said "can it be from Facebook"? He immediately says "yeah, that's it. Your the Facebook chick".
I also took a ribbing from the tech folks and the band members. They would be themselves, explaining things to Irene and I, and would try to engage us in conversation, and every damn time I opened my mouth they would ask "your not from Florida, where are you from?" Soon as I said NY, then they wanted to know where in NY? Soon as I said Long Island, they laughed and said "Listen to how she says Lawngg Island! Yeah, shes one of us"! I love those guys, what a great bunch of guys and they made both Irene and I feel very welcome!
Meeting John was real great. I had no idea until yesterday how short he is! Even with boots on I think he was the same height as me, and I think Irene might have topped him by an inch or two. He was a sweetie-as soon as Uncle Dave said we were there for the M&G John was like "OK, girls, so what are we doing today? Want some pictures, wanna come up on the stage and play one of the guitars? I can sign some things for you-did you bring something? John was totally awesome and I hope he knows how much Irene and I appreciated this!
Then we ate dinner with everyone. Dinner was some kind of fish, which was good but very spicy. There was rice, salads, veggies, cookies, cake, and I don't know what else, it was buffet style and I didn't check out the whole tables-I was too busy getting T-Bone to autograph my Dangerous Dances. T-Bone sat down with us and opened my DD to some photos he said he had taken. They are towards the back of the book, and it comes out to about two pages of photos that he said were his. He autographed the page and then on each picture that he took he put a TW on it!
Daryl and John both signed my Dangerous Dances on the front cover, as well as my backstage pass.
Meeting Daryl was an experience! He was very gracious and friendly and chatted a few minutes with us. He had those darned glasses on so I could not see how blue his eyes are, but that's OK. I am very humbled for the experience and so glad I was able to make this trip.
Irene, thanks so much for inviting me along, you don't know how much I appreciate this!
As for the show, the Ampitheatre isn't that big but the sound was great. The audience was very friendly and singing along with most of the songs. About halfway through some drunk women got up and went down by the stage and were dancing. Security was cool about people going near the stage as long as you weren't taking pictures. If you were taking pictures they would take your arm and steer you back further near the seats. But they seemed cool with people dancing down there. Irene and I made some new friends-we met Susan, Vicki, Marilyn and Michelle who post here on this board as BeachBum (Michelle), GlowGirl Susan), Libra (Vicki) and Ultimate One (Marilyn) . They found their way down to the stage and were hanging out and eventually I dumped Mike and found my way down to the stage to hangout with my fellow HOF'ers. Irene did the same too, although I could not see her. Her seats were on the opposite end, on Johns side, Mike and mine were on D's side.
There were two encores-and each encore was a 2-fer!
I will have to rely on someone else for a complete set list because I was too busy taking in the sights. I didn't want to have to be scribbling notes all evening but they did do (and this is not in order)
Private Eyes
Sara Smile
How Does It Feel To Be Back
Rich Girl
She's Gone
Out Of Touch
Maneater
Kiss On My List
I Can't Go For That
Las Vegas Turnaround
Family Man
Say It Isn't So


There were others, but my mind was in such a fog I couldn't remember them!

And that was my show experience, my first (and only) so far! I hope you enjoyed it!

Here are some fan pic's sent to me Carol Douglas, who writes:

When the boys finally made it back to the great southern land and toured with Icehouse in February this year, I was determined to see as many shows as I could. We paid $260 a ticket over here and if hubby had stayed home, I might have been able to go to more shows , lol.
As we were flying out of Melbourne, who should we see in the airport but the band. I got to meet John and he was just so wonderful. I have waited 35 years for this moment. He made sure we were in a great spot and signed my set list.
I also took the chance to chat with Charlie, who I met 20 years ago in Sydney. I got to meet T-Bone that night too. What a beautiful gentleman he was.




Carol and Charlie:


Continuing the Melbourne airport story, also met Paul and Brian. What an awesome crew. Daryl was no where to be seen.




Thank you Carol for sharing these pictures, and we're glad you had a great time!

Here is a fan pic sent to me by Peggy Feigenbaum, who writes: "T- Bone Wolk was a dear sweet humble super talented musician who was with Hall and Oates over thirty years. He was their musical director and Daryl's best buddy, Unfortunately we all lost him too early a couple of years ago. I knew T-Bone--we grew up in the same town, had the same doctors, lived in the same town for a while as adults. That is when he showed my son many of his tricks on the guitar at our local music center. I will hold him dearly in my heart forever."

Hi!

On 5-28-11, this picture was taken. My good friend Irene arranged this surprise for me and I can not thank her enough. I had heard that John Oates was a down to earth kind of gentleman ...and he is! He acted as if he had all the time in the world to chat with us when I KNEW his solo show was to start at any moment! This is one of those mountain top experiences for me and I'm very pleased and happy to share with my fellow John/ Hall & Oates fans!

Type to you later! God Bless!

A little known fact about Daryl Hall. . .(the blonde half of Hall and Oates)

Did you know that as a hobby Daryl Hall restores old houses? I mean old, old houses, like from the 1700's. Here here he is at Bray House in Kittery Point, ME, which he owns and it is one of the oldest surviving buildings in Maine! It is estimated to have been built around 1740 and was added to the National Register in 1979. Daryl bought it in 2008 for $2 Million dollars and is in the process of restoring it.

Hall and Oates "Hot Fun In The Summertime"!

This picture reminds me of a song. . .

Yes, that is Daryl Hall and John Oates!

This is them, as well, from the Liberty Concert in 1985 singing "Hot Fun In The Summertime". Enjoy!

Congratulations to the Hall And Oates Forever Discussion Board


We have reached a new milestone here at HallAndOatesForever. It only took us four years to do this, but yesterday at 4:10PM we added our 1000th member!
It has not been an easy trip, there's been a lot of good times and bad times and times I would bang my head against the wall and wonder why I still do this, but in the end it has been worth it. I am quite proud of our little group and would like to see us continue to grow.
So. . .here's to the next 1000! Please tell your friends about us and ask them to sign up if they are fans of Hall and Oates!

Daryl Hall's Hot Dogs

As you all know, each month on Live From Daryl's House, host Daryl Hall features a cooking segment with a professional chef from a local eatery in Duchess County where he has his home. Did you know that Daryl had a thing for food, long before "Live From Daryl's House" was ever born? Here is a recipe for Daryl's Very Best Hotdog's, this handout dates back to the days of old, from the RSI days. . .

T-Bone Wolk, Photographer!

Did you know that T-Bone Wolk, long time bassist for Hall And Oates, was equally as talented behind the lens of a camera? When I met him before the St. Augustine show in 2010, he noticed that I was holding a copy of "Dangerous Dances" in my arm, waiting to get Daryl Hall and John Oates to autograph it for me. T-Bone took the book out of my arms and asked me if I knew that he had taken some of the pictures that are in it, to which I replied "No, sir, I did not". He then borrowed a pen from one of his bandmates and sat next to me at the "dinner table" and signed every picture in DD that he had taken.
