Cuddle Magic were touring the country this spring, having also played in Denver and Seattle before coming to the Sidedoor last night in SE Portland. While they were in the studio, they mentioned that part of them are from Brooklyn, but the other members are from Philidelphia. When they said they met in college, I had to test them with a musical joke that only actual music students laugh at. A wonderful band, with electronic keyboards, trumpet and a bass clarinet among others instruments.
We loved them so much when they perfomed for us last Febuary,<http://kboo.fm/node/34030>, that we had to have them come back. In fact we were flooded with calls from listeners, last Monday, wondering when they would come on. I did have another band ready to perform, but the gals brought me an order of french fries, so we moved them right into the studio!
Back with us in the studio, we welcome The Shook Twins.Katelyn and Laurie grew up in northern Idaho and have been singing together since before they were six. Now living in Portland, this is their second visit to KBOO, which we were so glad they could work into their busy performance schedule.. Acomplished musicians and singer/songwriters whom we wish could be on every show.
On the March 17 installment of "Swing & Country", Wayne & Kathy hosted a live performance in Studio One at KBOO. The featured artist was singer-songwriter Dan Weber who was joined by the talented guitarist, Jerry Towell. Dan sang some songs off his recently released CD "Ash And Bone". two covers and one of his most recently written songs. www.danwebermusic.com
