BS with Lorn C. Fountain

February 21, 2019

This week on the show, I hang with a fine guitarist/pedal steel guitarist named Lorn C. Fountain. Like me, Lorn was born in Syracuse, NY, which is awesome. We chat about many things, mostly music and his story including his living in Austin from 1986-2001. He played in a few bands including Street Legal, Slingblade, The Buzzards and The Moment. He also worked as a stage hand at Stubbs BBQ for SXSW in 1997 and 1998. Lorn moved to Louisville in 2001 and has played with several great players around town. Make sure you hang until the end because Lorn turns the tables on me…

BS with Bo Swanger

February 14, 2019

On this episode of the show, I have a cool conversation with my buddy, Bo Swanger. Bo lives in Seattle, Washington but he goes to NAMM every year and this year, we were in California together so we sat down to chat. Bo has been playing drums for a long time and he might be a bigger gear head than me; he definitely has a thing for snare drums. We talk about his music history, professional career, being a new dad and how he cured a concussion from falling off stage.

BS with Andrew Loggins

February 7, 2019

Today on the show I get to hang with my buddy Andrew Loggins. Andrew was very instrumental in my early teaching career. Him and his wife, Melissa, own Music Authority in Cumming, GA. We sat down in front of Starbucks in the Hilton hotel during the Anaheim NAMM Convention a couple weeks ago. We talk about a few things but mostly his outlook on teaching and what it takes to have a successful music lesson program and I learned a lot more about him. Andrew is an awesome dude and it was awesome to hang with him and Melissa.

You can find Andrew at musicauthorityinc.com. Also on facebook and Instagram using @musicauthority.

BS Goes To NAMM

January 31, 2019

This week’s episode is all about NAMM. Staci and I went to Anaheim, California for the 2019 NAMM show and it was awesome. We saw so many things we figured we’d talk about it together and give our perspective on it. NAMM was a lot of fun and this episode was a lot of fun! We talk about the gear, the people, the parties and the whole vibe of NAMM, including too much Jazz Cabbage.

BS Episode 9

January 24, 2019

Today on the show, I have something I think is pretty cool. In my hands are real booklets from the 30s, 40s & 50s that were the regulations for the Kentucky Musicians Union or The American Federation Of Musicians. It’s pretty interesting, at least to me, so I wanted to share with you guys. I read through some of the pay rates, rules and some of the old venues that used to be in Louisville. A lot of it is common sense and most of it, other than the pay, can still be applied to today’s gigs.

Social Media Issues – Use more words sometimes.

Stories From The Stage – Impress me bro.

What Am I Listening To? Panic! At The Disco

BS with Luca Bianconcini

January 11, 2019

HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO THE BAR STAR PODCAST!!!!

That’s right, today, Friday Jan. 11 2019 marks one year since I started this podcast. Thank you guys so much for the continued support!!

Today on the show, I hang with my buddy Luca Bianconcini – say that last name 3 times fast – who is the drummer for the band Radiotronic in Louisville. Luca is a great drummer and a great human! We had a lot to talk about because we haven’t known each other too long so this episode was fun to do. We touch on his childhood, his last name and how he is “late to the game” of music. Check it out and check out the links below to a great charity that Luca is involved with!!

Social Media Issues – Luca is a voyeur, or some such weirdness.

Stories From The Stage – Panic buttons and fancy fired letters.

What Are You Listening To? Classically calmed in a soundtrack.

Apron Inc. was an idea Luca had over 10 years ago. It helps take care of people who work in our local restaurants (service industry) if they are put out of work or face any hardship that is out of their control. They pay their bills up to $1500.00 to get them back on their feet. So far, they have given over $200,000 in the last 6 or so years. Apron Inc. Check them out using the link below and find them on Facebook, also.

BS with Kevin Hale

December 20, 2018

Today on the show I hang out with my buddy Kevin Hale. Kevin hosts a podcast in Louisville called Shooting From The Lip and we break down how he got into podcasting, what his show is about and why he got started. Kevin has some cool stories about choosing go sports ball over music when he was younger and why he regrets that decision. We also discuss the local Louisville music scene, some of the amazing players we have in the city, political observations (which doesn't last long) and me talking smack about Kevin before we met. There's also a big bottle of wine involved as well as a run in on the show!

BS with Sydney Magers

December 13, 2018

On today’s episode, I get to hang out with my awesome new musical sister, Sydney Magers, who is a phenomenal singer and one half of the two lead vocalists of The Juice Box Heroes. Sydney was awesome hang and has many greats stories including not only being a theater kid, but starting at five years old! She was cast in Hairspray which landed her a scholarship to the University of Northern Colorado. She has seen way too many things to list here, but this is an episode you don’t want to miss, mainly because we have too many accented squirrels flying out of our faceholes.

Social Media Issues – Pros, cons, TMI & staying in touch.

Stories From The Stage – Hawaiian Princess blows out a knee or two.  

What Are You Listening To? Lake Street Dive, Duke Ellington and Alt-J.
