Creating A Buzz In Baltimore
Hi Everyone. I got the chance to sit down with Randy Jackson from the band Zebra before his solo acoustic performance at the House of Rock in March. Shockwave: I'm Mike from Shockwave, nice to meet you Randy. Randy Jackson: Nice to meet you too Mike. Have you ever played here before? Not in this club no, but I played Baltimore last year for the Fallen Blue Fundraiser. I saw on your website that you are pretty busy touring up and down the east coast with your acoustic tour. How is that going? Sometimes it's great, sometimes its not, like I played in Chicago last week and no one was there and then the next night I'm in Milwaukee and the place was packed. Now you have been playing music for a very, very long time, can you tell me how things are different for you now and when the first Zebra album came out? I think I'm kind of settled and feel a little more secure. I think the fact I'm doing so many different things like still doing Zebra, doing this acoustic thing and also performing with the symphony, different streams of incomek, you know, so it's a...Read more...
Finally, something I can listen to and just crash on my couch on a Sunday! Hometown boys Dropping Sully always seem to come through! My only problem with Unvarnished is that some of the songs seem to drag out. But hey, if you're crashing on the couch on a lazy Sunday, that's a different story.

Photo By Kady Jordan With the current struggling music scene, and bands rising and fallen, one particular band has faced tremendous trials and tribulations and has risen above all...Anoxia. In the past few years, there's been a rise in female fronted rock bands, and Anoxia has taken the helm. But, don't let the idea of them being a female fronted band become the only stand out trait; everyone in the band stands out in their own way. Whether it's the unique drum stylings of Matt Boccia, to the well placed rhythm bass guitar of Dan Krol, or the heavy guitar playing of original founding member Joe Horan and TJ Darpino that complements the vocal styling of Chrystal Jordan, everyone brings something great to the plate. Throughout the bands career, they've received numerous nominations as well as opened up for some well noted national acts including (hed) p.e., Saving Abel, to headlining their own big shows. Just recently Anoxia headlined their very successful video release show which showcased the premiere of their video "You're Not Alone." The band currently has their EP out, and has received good praise among people in the Baltimore music scene. With a lot of steam running...Read more...
