BS Goes To NAMM

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

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

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!

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.

BS with Aalics Bronson

BS with Aalics Bronson

December 6, 2018

This week on the show I hang with my buddy Aalics Bronson. Aalics is a monster bass player and we talk about all kinds of behind the scenes music business-y type stuff. We all also discuss his weird circle hand movements while he plays, his bouncing back and forth between Louisville and NYC, as well as his early start to his bass playing. Aalics is super busy with playing bass for Jean Marx Express, touring off and on in Europe, teching for a couple of known artists, behind the scenes production and part time managing a band! He has his hands in a lot of fires and loves all of it. He’s a cool dude, so busy in fact, Sebastian made his way into our conversation this week.

BS with Frank Green

BS with Frank Green

November 29, 2018

Today on the show, I hang out with my buddy, Frank Green. Frank and I don’t know each other very well, but we had a lot of stuff to talk about. So much in fact, we never got to Social Media Issues, Stories From The Stage or What Are You Listening To. But that’s okay because Frank will be back in a few weeks. We do talk about gigging, Frank growing up playing bass, our dear friend Kevin McCreery, how he landed into a band that got a record deal within a month of him joining, the amazing amount of talent in the Louisville music scene and dealing with death and depression. This is one of those rare episodes where we get a little deep so you don’t want to miss this one. We even touch on concept records!

BS with Mitch Kirkpatrick

BS with Mitch Kirkpatrick

November 15, 2018

This week I sit down with a former student who is now a good friend, Mitch Kirkpatrick. I met Mitch several years ago when he was teenage drummer looking to become better at his craft. He was like a power plant of energy behind the drums but had no focus. I pointed him in the right direction and he worked hard and it paid off. We talk about what he’s been up to, living in Los Angeles and Nashville and where is life is now. And if course, 2 drummers together create tons of squirrel moments!

Social Media Issues – Mitch has stayed away but still has some observations.

Stories From The Stage – Some “song requesters” take thing a little too far.

What Are You Listening To – Mitch is really into the new Eminem album.
