I recently had as guests on the September 28, 2007, Dog and Pony show, three members of Portland’s Vagabond Opera. If you cozy up to the post-modern, operatic, cabaret, Ukrainian mixed with Klezmer mixed with Middle Eastern…oh I give up. Listen for yourself and it will be time well spent.

Thanks for playlisting. ALL the money goes to the homeless in NY

ALBUM, SINGLE FOR THE HOMELESS IN NEW YORK
Heroes of the Dancefloor have just released a new album ‘Torch’ and a single ‘Same Scandal’ on all the major download sites through INgrooves, the San Francisco, New York digital label.
ALL the money will go to two New York charities, ‘Picture the Homeless’ (www.picturethehomeless.org) and ‘Coalition for the Homeless’ (www.coalitionforthehomeless.org)
NO money at all including publishing mechanicals and royalties will go to any of the musicians.
The record features the singer Mamazu, the trumpet player touring and recording with Kasabian and the Scissor Sisters and the sax player and keyboard player touring and recording with Pee Wee Ellis from James Brown’s old band.
Mixes and remixes have come from top US DJs such as Nick Chacona and Anthony Mansfield as well as top US and UK engineers including Adam Noble in the Strongroom, Joe Fields and Sam Dillon in Soho studios, Doug McBride in Gravity Studios in Chicago, Grammy award winning Thom Russo in Los Angeles and Grammy award winning Mick Glossop in London.
According to the annual report by the Coalition on Homelessness "New York has reached a new record for the number of homeless families living in our shelters. In this year alone the number of people living in homeless shelters has increased by 11% and the number of CHILDREN has increased by 18% to over 14,000.
Last year the album ‘Momentum’ was released digitally by INgrooves and was distributed as a cd by independent distribution collective. The record reached no 450 in the radio charts in the US without any promotion. A house remix by Amy McDonald’s producer (Mercury records) was released by INgrooves this year. ALL the money from these previous records (all mechanicals publishing royalties etc etc) go to the charity that looks after the homeless in San Francisco, Coalition on homelessness (www.cohsf.org ) This is the sister charity to picture the homeless in New York
The inspiration for the new records came from a homeless woman on the street of New York who was about 36 weeks pregnant and who was begging in the rain. She was crying and looked completely desperate.
