SOUL GARAGE EXPERIENCE Right down below OFFICIAL VIDEO

Fabrizio Grossi’s Soul Garage Experience is nothing else than the well renowned bassist/producer solo band with his debut single release of ‘Right Down Below’. Fab says of the song ‘ It’s about keeping on pushing to uplift oneself out of dire straits, and the fight against social and income disparity, homelessness & discrimination, especially in a city like Los Angeles where I live. This can be felt all across the world and we must work with each other for change.’ The single is taken from the forthcoming “Counterfeited Blues!” album which provides the soundscape for the explosive live performances of Soul Garage Experience. Fab is well known for working with top level musicians of the community and fronts the band on lead vocals and bass - the album features the stellar Jane’s Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins, American Idol finalist Diimond Meekes on vocals/hammond organ and a string of surprise guests. 24 year old fellow LA based rising star Derek Day provides the incendiary guitar playing on the debut single - he infuses his music with the power of Rock N’ Roll, as he engages with and captures the audience theatrically. Touring all over the US and in parts of Europe, Derek has opened for and performed with luminaries in Steve Vai, Moby, and Slash and as such has the credentials to boot. Just like for his other award winning band Supersonic Blues Machine, fronted by Kris Barras with Kenny Aronoff, Billy F. Gibbons, Warren Haynes, Eric Gales and other sublime talents, the thrilling live shows of the band are heavily jam based, so to embrace the golden era of live Blues Rock & Soul: the 60’s and the 70’s! On stage, the ensemble easily moves between new crafted tunes and all time classics spanning time in Hendrix, Cream, Allman Bros, Stevie Wonder but they are a far cry from your regular covers band! Their sound can be easily associated with contemporary Rock-Blues and Neo- Soul artists such as Vintage Trouble, Gary Clark Jr, The Black Keys, Fantastic Negrito & thanks to the musicians’ own backgrounds, history and their endless love for Cream, Hendrix and Curtis Mayfield alike, the resulting music experience offered by the band is an infectious groove laden combination of old and new school, with a music prowess & ownership that turns heads and instigates curiosity. Fab is excited to bring his music to all, to excite, thrill, enlighten and raise awareness of how we can all come together in the most difficult and not only the best of times.

Fab's Music Café: Fab interviews Blues guitar legend, Josh Smith

In this episode, Fab interviews Blues guitar legend, Josh Smith. Blues rock guitar virtuoso, singer-songwriter and producer, Josh Smith, is hailed the world over as a master guitarist with raw talent and power to spare. Blending his signature mix of blues, rock and jazz into dynamic original songs, Smith is known for his incendiary live performances, whether at the Grammy Awards or the Kennedy Center Honors with Mick Jagger, Raphael Saadiq and others. Born in 1979, Josh started playing guitar at age six. Praised as a blues prodigy by the time he was 12 years old, he began playing at professional blues jams in South Florida, sitting in with such greats as Jimmy Thackery, Tinsley Ellis, Kenny Neal, Lucky Peterson, Matt “Guitar” Murphy, Johnny “Clyde” Copeland, Double Trouble, Joanna Connor and Kim Simmonds, among others. Jimmy Thackery said of the 14-year-old, “Josh is three heartbreaks away from being a true blues guitar genius.” That insight from Jimmy Thackery proved true as Josh began releasing CDs at age 14. His first national tour with his power trio, Josh Smith and the Frost, featured Josh as bandleader, vocalist as well as guitarist. The legendary producer Jim Gaines (Santana, SRV, Luther Allison, Steve Miller, Jimmy Thackery) produced Josh’s third CD, Too Damn Cold and Woman. By 1998, he had completed four national tours with his band. Josh was then asked to support the great B.B. King on a number of shows. Opening for B.B. King was just the beginning for this in-demand artist and lead guitarist for artists such as Taylor Hicks, Ricky Fante (Virgin Records), Raphael Saadiq, actress Taryn Manning, Universal Music Group hip-hop artists Benny Cassette and Tara Ellis, and more. He has the distinction of inducting Neil Diamond into the Kennedy Center Honors with Raphael Saadiq’s band and honoring Solomon Burke at the Grammys with Mick Jagger. Within a year of moving to L.A. in 2002, Josh was retained by Virgin recording artist Ricky Fante and performed nationally and internationally with Ricky for the next two years. In 2006, Josh recorded his fifth CD, Deep Roots and continued to play with a variety of artists such as actress Taryn Manning, Universal Music hip-hop artists Benny Cassette and Tara Ellis, to name a few. In 2007, Josh was hired by 2006 American Idol winner Taylor Hicks to be his lead guitarist. They completed two national tours before Josh was hired as lead guitarist by Grammy Award winner Raphael Saadiq. Josh continues to tour with Saadiq. In 2009, Josh released his 6th studio CD, Inception and in 2010 he was signed to Crosscut Records based in Germany. Crosscut re-released Josh’s breakout album, Deep Roots as I’m Gonna Be Ready. In 2013, Josh’s CD Don’t Give Up On Me was also released in Germany, followed by Over Your Head in 2014. In 2016, Josh’s jazz album, Still was released to critical acclaim as was Burn To Grow in 2018. Along with touring the world, recording and performing with renowned artists such as Joe Bonamassa, Eric Johnson, Andy Timmons, Kirk Fletcher and others, Smith is also a producer and owns Flat V Studios in Los Angeles. He has produced artists Reese Wynans (Joe Bonamassa), Artur Menezes (winner of the Eric Clapton 2019 Crossroads Festival) Seth Rosenbloom, Jamey Arent and many more. Josh’s latest and 11th album, Live At The Spud, was released January 8, 2020 on Flat V Music, and features Smith and his power trio recorded live over two nights at the legendary Baked Potato in Los Angeles. The new album features Smith on guitar and vocals, Gary Novak on drums and Trevor Carlton on bass. The goal was to present an unedited look at a normal night at the Baked Potato. Compelling, improvisational and explosive. Josh is currently touring worldwide in support of the live album. Josh lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son.

Alamo Music Center: Fender American Professional II vs. American Professional Stratocaster Comparison

Chris and Cooper are back to compare the new American Professional II Stratocaster with its predecessor, the American Professional. Though the Lake Placid Blue model we're comparing here is a Limited Edition model, it's still close enough for a comparison-- these Strats differ in their necks, pickups, tremolo hardware, neck finish, fret rolling, and of course, colors. After checking out our reveal of the American Pro II line, we hope you can hear a difference between these two models. Shop Fender Guitars - https://www.alamomusic.com/brands/Fen...

Oct 7th, 2020: School of Rock Updates Curriculum to Feature More Music Created by Black Artists

Oct 7th, 2020: School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education, is enhancing its proprietary curriculum to feature more music created by Black artists. The goal is to further educate students on the Black community's history and central contributions to the development of Rock and Roll. To start, School of Rock has added new feature shows to its performance-based curriculum. Each of these programs encompass 20-25 songs from Black artists. As part of the curriculum, students will learn to perform these songs and discover important lessons about the complex experience of marginalized communities. New shows include "Roots of the British Invasion," "The Music of Memphis," and "The Music of New Orleans." "We teach musical proficiency through rock because contemporary songs offer an effective toolkit, particularly in group performance. Just as importantly, popular music opens a door to history. We have an obligation to honor those Black artists without whom there would be no Rock and Roll, and by extension no School of Rock," said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. Additionally, utilizing the collective knowledge of the talented instructors across the School of Rock system, the company has published on its website a series of articles and interactive content on the historical contribution of Black artists to Rock and Roll. Early Rock artists featured include Etta James, Ray Charles, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, in addition to more recent innovators like Prince, Tracy Chapman, and Gary Clark, Jr. "This project has been energizing, and it inspires us to better understand and teach the stories of other groups' contributions to the art form," continues Price. "We also hope that by better understanding our musical past, we can contribute to a more harmonious future." School of Rock provides students of all ages an exciting and engaging learning environment for taking guitar lessons, drum lessons, bass lessons, keyboard lessons, and singing lessons. Drawing from all styles of rock and roll, School of Rock students learn theory and techniques via songs from legendary artists such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, and Frank Zappa. Thanks to the school's performance-based approach, students around the world have gained superior instrumental skills and confidence on the big stage, with some moving on to record deals and larger platforms such as American Idol, The Voice and Broadway.
