Thank you Joey for having me on your podcast and your interest in my photo project. I’m going to continue this project to include some of the younger boxers along with some women, and will share the images with you and your readers.

If I you could, I would like to give a shout out and thanks to Carlo and Joey DaSilva at the Gloucester Boxing Club for allowing me into their space to do this project.

Here are just a few photos from the project.

Thanks again,

Any Ideas? I am Really Curious

any ideas

These very strange looking objects were out on the horizon Sunday afternoon off Brace Cove.  Anyone have any idea what they might be?  These were two distinct, very large things quite a distance away from each other.  They don’t look like any kind of tanker or ship I’ve ever seen.

PRESENTED BY M.E. PRODUCTIONS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CABOT

World rockers RUSTED ROOT have been bringing people together since the early ’90s. With undeniably infectious anthems like “Send Me On My Way” and “Ecstasy,” they’ve captured hearts and minds while spreading their peaceful message around the world. The quintessential live band, Pittsburgh’s Rusted Root continues to perform high energy shows around the globe to sold out crowds.

Having collaborated for two decades, Rusted Root has honed the perfect combination of musical intuition, freedom and virtuosity, which has allowed them to organically shape their music into it’s own distinct and undeniable vision. With eight albums under their belt, over three million records sold and countless nights on the road, Rusted Root transcends age, cultures and musical styles.The members of Rusted Root are drawn to and have explored virtually every form of music. “I am very inspired vocally by anything from Indian to African to Middle Eastern sounds and scales having grown up with a lot of Hebrew music” Liz Berlin notes. Michael Glabicki cites the Bee Gees, Elvis Costello, Neil Young, Toni Childs, Black Keys, Black Sabbath and various Afro Pop music as among his influences. Combining a jam aesthetic and a global mindset, Rusted Root combines World influences into a transcontinental brew. The powerhouse ensemble’s hypnotic live performances have allowed them to tour alongside Santana, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Plant & Page and many others.

Rusted Root brings down the house every time they hit the stage, and we’re proud to welcome them to the Cabot!JUST ADDED: ROOTS OF CREATION!

“From addictive reggae pop songs to consciously charged roots rhythms and berserk electronic improvisations, the grace and precision with which ROC executes their bass-heavy works is overwhelming. Their roots are tinged with rock, their rock brushed with electronica, and they’re as likely to dash off into a 10-minute guitar-led groove as they are to perform righteous vocal songs that resonate like the roots-rock classics of old” wrote Homegrown Music Network.

2013 New England Music and Cider Magazine Award Winners, Roots of Creation, mixes roots and dub reggae with guitar-heavy rock and electronica, all wrapped around lead singer/guitarist Brett Wilson’s introspective and consciousness-laden lyrics.

The band is raising the bar at every performance with the intent of delivering a true rock show cleverly disguised as a reggae dance bash with psychedelic and energizing lights.  The techno-beam and LED tube lighting increases the already high-energy sound that Roots of Creation (RoC) brings to their audiences.

RoC’s newest release, Live at Bella Terra Festival (. . . And Stoned at Church), captures the band, during a 10 show tour, from the east coast to Chicago to Eastern Canada in August 2011.  The stop at Bella Terra in Stephentown, New York allowed RoC to perform a high-profile slot directly after the headliner, The Mickey Hart Band.  As thousands of fans poured from the main stage over to the late-night tent, RoC delivered a truly unique musical experience with thumping reggae bass lines, piercing guitar licks, and an electronic-dub sound only this band could create.  RoC travels with their own lighting designer, who put on a show of techno beams and LED tubes to match the music and vibe of Bella Terra as lead singer Brett Wilson demanded the crowds’ attention with his soulful lyrics and revolutionary calls.

Roots of Creation is made up of original members guitarist/lead singer Brett Wilson, keyboard player Tal Pearson, and drummer Mike Chadinha.  RoC is currently touring with a rotating arsenal of bassists, horns, and auxiliary members to blow the audience away by enhancing the overall sound and energy. The band formed in 2001 with Wilson, Pearson, Chadinha and former bassists while attending Franklin Pierce College and began touring heavily in 2004. RoC also tours with a rotating arsenal of horns to blow the audience away by enhancing the overall sound and energy.
