    On Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at 8:00 pm, I have attended a performance by Joy Harjo and her friends Mitch Taylor who played the guitar, Dave Copenhaver who played the bass guitar, and Smiling’ Vic Gutierrez who played the drums and vocals. I had specifically chose this performance to do my report on because I wanted to feel what actual Native American music would be like in concert as opposed to what we naturally think of when it comes to Native American music. For me, that would include heavy…

    Vin Dammann (vocals, rhythm guitar), Dan Tumolo (drums), Rich Ealer (lead guitar, vocals) and Morgan Bartz (bass), make up the local New Jersey alternative band. Constructed from their Eps Beach House, Leaving Rip City and Its Not Your Pain, they delivered a thorough performance. Throughout, Ealer and his guitar were captivating to say the least. Not to say the foursome did not ‘wow’ as a whole, just the imaginativeness was admirable. For instance “Rhythm to Rhythm” from Leaving Rip City, the…

    their compositions, the band is rounded out with saxophonist Trevor Hogg and drummer Nick Fraser. Their fourth outing, More Songs About Error and Shame, comprises seven well-worked compositions (Herring penned four and Scott three) dressed in shimmering textural hues to attain a uniform balance between written score and improv. Kicking off with resolute unisons, “The Blunder” builds a sturdy rock-based foundation after Fraser’s crisp diction of hi-hat and snare drum gets hooked to Herring’s…

    The song I have chosen for the My Favorite Song Assignment is “Crazy On You,” by the rock group Heart. It has been my all-time favorite song since I was in high school, and was one of the first songs I learned how to play on guitar. It is a stellar example of rock music that was popular in the seventies and displays the accomplished songwriting talents of lead singer Ann Wilson, her guitar-playing sister Nancy, as well as the contributions of the other members of the band: Howard Leese, Roger…

    It began with creepy sound effects including the slamming of doors, thunder crashes, and the ticking of a clock. The vocals start at 1:00, which was a very long introduction in comparison to tracks 2 and 3. Michael Jackson’s voice paints the picture of a horror movie mixed with a pop song. I enjoyed the trumpet’s staccato notes at 1:45. “Thriller” is a song that is easy to be stuck in someone’s head because it is so catchy. I enjoyed the bass part even though it was repetitive. The vibe of the…
