SLB Indie Trailer S2 Ep6 SLB on WMSC ends up SOL

This is the Episode you have been waiting for, when you finally get to meet, hear, and listen to the full band.  Although Bishop and Jibrail were not able to make this on-the-air radio promotion, SLB played a great acoustic set and it was only fitting to start here.

 

SLB Indie Trailer Season 2 Episode 3 brings new music and technology

SLB Indie Trailer S2 Ep3

As anything thing when there are grand plans for launches, there are always delays, so although the “SLB Indie Trailer – Season 2” officially launched on YouTube a couple of weeks ago, nailing down the actual podcast launch has proven to be challenging, but we are officially a go tomorrow at 12pm with our third episode –  This is our 3rd day on our journey to Floyd Fest, which brings great new music to us as well as some rocking performances by Dirty Bourbon RiverShow and Grace Potter only to be topped with a fire show, where Floyd Fest literally burned down the house.  Please let us know if you are having any difficulties.  We have launched visually on YouTube as well as today, now on all the podcast services.  Thanks for downloading, listening, and sharing.  Feel free to reach out to us directly with show ideas or comments to @SLBloodhound on Twitter & Instagram or on Facebook at DevlinMilesFans

The World’s Largest Piano Bar

When you grow up listening to Billy Joel as part of the Saturday morning chore ritual as his songs echo from the radio, you might think the day of ever seeing him sing in a piano bar are long over.  The days when he would play the piano into the wee hours of the night for “bread in his jar” to help support his mother and make all the ends meet. The days where you could sit around the piano with him and help throw out requests and he would play them, that those days were history.  Yet somehow, THE “Piano Man,” invited 18,200 of his closest friends to sit around the piano and sing with him, and get this, he does this once a month.

This Piano Man has captured the heart of NY in one little show at Madison Square Garden once a month until the people stop coming.  Sure there are lights, jumbotrons, technicians, cameras, the glow of every cell phone in the house, but ultimately there is this ONE man sitting behind his piano shouting out songs to the crowd for us to chose from. We strolled with him down memory lane as he would explain these songs are from “The Stranger” album, these songs were recorded in 1972, and “I never thought I would look like my father, I never wanted to look like my father and there he is,” as he points to the jumbotron far above, “Hi Dad!”  In these brief moments we are let into the man, the man behind the piano, this aging human man behind the piano, that still relates to the world like you or I.  We see the man, the “Piano Man,” that has kept Billy Joel on the radio and in the hearts of Americans, since his first note hit the airwaves.

This Piano Man, will be playing The Worlds Largest Piano Bar for years to come.  He keeps it fresh for those who see him often and for those that only get to see him once in a lifetime this is the place and time to see him.  You will leave with a song in your heart and a head full of memories.  Even if you are sick of hearing THAT song, you will never top hearing 18,200 fans sing “Piano Man” at one time, it is the ultimate piano bar experience and an overwhelming thank you to the man who captured THAT feeling, years ago, sitting around his piano.

SLB in ATL Rocking Your Block!

Sweet Little Bloodhound toured down to Atlanta to be a part of the WomenInCharg3 Awards Show as we were nominated for “Album of The Year.”  We had a great time and met some really fun people during the weekend we managed to meet the neighbors, play in the streets, witness a bar brawl (not us), rehearse by the pool and befriend a new fantastic band The Encore Band.  We had a great time and here are the pictures to prove it.  If you know of an event that we can add our own flavah too, let us know and we will “Rock Your Block.”

Stand by for the relaunch of the SLB IndieTrailer podcast where we will take you on tour with us, late September.

See you soon, lots more dates coming, so stand by as we update our calendar and get ready for a new rocking season.  Book your holiday party now!
