Les Paul’s BIG SOUND Experience

I was driving home from work this afternoon, stopped in the third lane on I-95 due to traffic problems. I happened to look across the jersey barrier to the northbound side and glimpse this 53′ tractor trailer truck with a way cool multi-color design stating that it was Les Paul‘s 100 Birthday.

When I got home I looked it up on the Internet. I discovered that Les Paul’s Big Sound Tour was bound for the Hard Rock Cafe Foxwoods in Ledyard Connecticut. It will be on exhibit there June 17th and 18th.

Les Paul the father of modern music and the solid body electric guitar would have been 100 years old June 9, 2015. A special 100th Anniversary Celebration was held on June 9th at the Times Square Hard Rock Cafe in New York City. Rolling Stone Magazine covered this historic event.

Unlocking The Truth

This power trio is on fire! I can’t wait for their album on Sony*. Love their energy, drive and commitment to performing Metal.

Let’s hear it for Unlocking The Truth. Give their video from Times Square a view. I’d drop money in the bucket for sure.

Malcolm Brickhouse (guitar), Jarad Dawkins (drums) and Alec Atkins (bass) from where else but Brooklyn, NY. Now you know why Brooklyn is the Music Capital of the World!

*Sony inked a deal for two albums by their group, Unlocking the Truth, with an option for four more records. If Sony sticks with them for all six albums, the boys could rake in as much as $1.7 million.
