10 Tips for New Musicians Taking the Stage

10 Tips for New Musicians Taking the Stage

  1.  Practice.  A bunch.  Every practice is a rehearsal for your show.  You should all start at the same time, and end at the same time.   2.  Tune before your show.  There is no exception.  If you’re first tuning on stage, you are behind the game.  It's unprofessional, and you look amateur.   3.  Fuck ups happen.  No...

the winery dogs – hot streak

the winery dogs – hot streak

I suppose my biggest critique of the new winery dogs could be considered pretty harsh. I’ll go ahead and brace you for it now so it comes as no surprise later but the worst part of this release is that sooner or later it is in fact…over. This mixed bag of funk rock will simply capture you and your imagination...

Cavo – The Painful Art of Letting Go

Cavo – The Painful Art of Letting Go

Preparing for the new release, I wanted to take a minute to go to their past. Way back into their past and look at an early effort from Cavo, just to give you a point of reference in how far this band has come. But also to tell you how far ahead of the game they started. You see, I...

Book Review: The Second Coming, a Love Story

Ya know what it is, is something very special. Pinsker takes us on an epic journey of the End Times, but the literary device that he employs – a Savior and an Antichrist who may not be what they seem – creates a foreboding undercurrent that’s irresistible.  Never before have good and evil, light and dark, God and Satan been...

so you want to start a radio station?

updated 4/6/17 Between people coming to Renegade, finding us on facebook (yea, right. People are too busy showing off their lunch to give a damn who else is out there) or being involved in discussion groups such as linked in and so forth, I see a lot of people asking “man, help me setup a radio station!” One of my...

social media crumbles again

Sort of. You can’t make efforts to avoid the law. You must be over 18 to talk about guns. (if someone could explain that bit of nonsense to me, I’d appreciate it) and in a bold move have issued this pointed statement that simply could *never* be misrepresented. “will not permit people to post offers to sell regulated items that...

craving strange – a life exceptional

  "Dirty Rock" kicks off the release with one hell of a groove.. You can't help but want to dance in your seat with that deep, gutteral bass line from Tommy Wendt.. Then it's all guns blazing as  you've got the Anthem-like "Your Last Day Alive". "Here and Gone" is one that sticks out as well  - Catchy rhythm & Passionate lyrics all in...

is the PC on life support?

With the ever changing face of technology these days, consumers are now caught between computers, phones and all sorts of tablets in between. There was a day when Microsoft led the way and over time accomplished Bill Gates simple mission statement of “a personal computer on every desk and in every home”. While the PC isn’t “dead” yet it is...

they say guns kill people

Guns don’t kill people. We hear that a lot but in today’s society they sure seem used by others to get the job done. Most recently we’re all aware of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting where 20 children and 6 adults lost their lives at the hands of 20 year old Adam Lanza. This is a heartbreaking event and many...

bucket list – arctic style

Bucket List. I have to imagine we all have one but we keep putting things off. Work, cost, is that *really* on the list? Sometimes you have to stop and then, just go. Go do it. Put away the excuses and hide the reasons from the logical side of you. So while I had some downtime, I decided recently to...

a pop tart moment

happen? I've had several "pop tart" moments since the original one and now I've just come to appreciate them for what they are; a coincidence of epic proportions that you can't plan because the random nature of them is what makes them so great.   let me back up and explain how first the term got coined and then the...

analysis of a dream

I'm in familiar territory, but it's all different and changes every time I look around. if I go back to where I...

the death of FM

All through history new technology has made old technology obsolete. With music, we started off with reel to reel tapes and moved to 8-tracks. I’m not sure how 8 tracks ever got out the door however. i never had one that didn't need a piece of paper shoved in the side of the tape to player (if you don't understand...
