JD and The Straight Shots. It’s About Time

While reading New York Times today, this article, “A New Track And A New Tack”, by Scott Cacciola, caught my eye in today’s sports section, which, by the way, I almost never read, an omen I better highlight this for sure. Here is a guy who is rolling along, doing pretty darn great in life. Realizing, as I do about myself, he is not getting any younger, he probably gets to a point where he decides it is time for a total change up. So he starts a band. Fortunately he has lots of talent, and some time needed to start up. He chooses a great song by one of my personal favorites, (I was beginning to worry I was the only fan of Little Feat leat alive, actually not true, as they were the band Led Zeppelin’s favorite band and I am confident they have millions more). He decides to perform “Let It Roll” with his new band and post online. I noticed a percussionist who plays on,” Live From Daryl’s House” website and TV series with Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates fame. This guy, James L.Dolan, owns the New York Knicks ? This just goes to prove, the older you get, the better music is for your soul. Music is my passion as well. I don’t like writing about it, but I sure do love listening to it, especially when it is as good as JD & The Straight Shots perform this song. I hear they have a planned upcoming album and the subject matter sounds great. Watch for it. Somebody, please email me once it’s out. Enjoy!

Welcome To The New Front Row Center Website! All The World’s A Stage!

Welcome to Front Row Center. Now under construction, but soon to deliver great video footage of various music, live performance footage, and varied genres! This website won’t only be limited to music either, as was it’s blog / vlog predecessor.  We all need a smile some times, or an interesting and thought provoking video or article can help us enjoy our spare time, on a train, in an airport, a doctors office, in the infamous DMV waiting room, even sitting on a beach on vacation. Sometimes we want to Rock it, and other times just chillax. If you have the time and the desire for good entertainment, we’ll be right here, just a few clicks away.  We might even drop some tech tricks and tips to help you burnish your mobile device skills.   And you too can play.  We will be very interested in your feedback and interaction. You can help us evolve this site based on your critiquing input and positive feedback.  Just “keep it real” is all we ask. We are all here to have fun and enjoy.  We also plan to give aspiring artists exposure when and where appropriate,whenever possible.  No better feeling than helping new-bees get a leg upon their careers, especially the talented new-bees.

We will do our best to have new content as often as possible. My hope is for people to find peace and happiness in a straight up stressful world.  I personally love watching consumate musicians movement, body language, fingerings on the frets of their axes when playing their instruments. Drummers running the rhythm streams making us tap our fingers and toes . To me, it is so deeply memorizing. No need for meditation when watched without distraction. Accoutic or electric guitars,  concert pianist, and especially orchestral performances all roll my dice.  A great comedian from time to time can absolutely warm your soul after the most difficult of days at work. 

So I hope you find what your looking for here and set up camp, bring your friends , leave a comment or two and help us all to just have a little variety in your short time spent on line.

Thank you for stopping on bye. Please come back again soon.
