AM Quar and his Quartettes make Mondays a bit more blue, you might say - jazzy and bluesy. He tosses in some latin ballads, classic love songs, and even some Stevie Ray, Van Morrison, Joe Cocker and drinking tunes. AM's Band is the "lovely" Presley Daines on Keyboard, "sultry" Sultry Ceriano on Bass, and Jeff Barrett on drums.
Every Monday night, it is a great way to break through the Monday blahs, 8PM SLT in Pergola at La Foce SanRemo.
P.S. Be sure to tip Marcy Wilson (below), AM's Hostess, and the venue!
Great music, great people - hear for yourself on Mondays!
Trasc McCallen, owner of Bama Breeze, enjoys listening to Don Galaga live on his entertainment island, Gilligan's Lost Lagoon. A nice crowd showed up on his cozy beach - his old friends and new ones too. Don, usually in country duds, was a bit tropic on this night. Don played a mix of country and pop ballads, and of course JIMMY BUFFET tunes. Don Galaga is an incredible singer, smooth and natural. Bama Breeze pays homage to Jimmy and his lifestyle. Don will be playing at least twice a month at the Breeze. Come casual.
By the end of the night, I got a little causual too. It's addictive! Bama Breeze, enjoy the sands and the good company - and of course Jimmy Buffet music and atmosphere. Look for the rest of the story in the October 2010 Best of SL Magazine.
The season of Fall is upon us in Nantucket, a scenic New England village in real life, and a beautiful performance and shopping space in Second Life. Many amazing performers have sang at Nantucket to adoring audiences. With only days away from the season's change in RL New England, I had the pleasure to drop in to SL Nantucket to catch a bit of two talented performers - AcousticEnergy Nitely (AE) on Thursday and Blueron Clyburn on Friday. During AcousticEnergy's performance I met Blue, and he invited me to listen to him playing live in Nantucket the following day.
It sounded like a great plan. Both AE and Blue are so smooth in their vocal presentations, but their styles are very different. Each can melt your heart in unique ways. Both interact well with their audiences. AE tends to flirt a bit with his songs. sometimes working female attendees' names into his song set. Both singers charm all who attend. Blue is just an all around fun presenter, displaying a rich vocal range and equally good sense of humor. AE has been a grid favorite for a long time, swooning women and helping all his fans, new and old, to remember to take time out of RL to have good times on the grid. He thrives on bringing together a community of listeners who just enjoy him at Nantucket and fairly anywhere in SL.
Sher Salmson, manager of both singers, is a beautiful sweet woman who represents several top SL musicans besides AE and Blue: Anek Fuchs, Automatic Band, Automatic Quandry, Gabryel Nyoki, Gina Stella, Hazideon Zarco, Lighthouse Mixmaster. Nantucket is a perfect setting to experience New England's Fall, any time of the year, whether or not a live performer is on stage. But when they are, they warm up the chilly September days.

I caught CraigLyons in action on Thursday night at Lions Gate. On Saturday, September 11th, he will close out the 9-11 tribute concert. It will be a fantastic day with a long line-up of 30 minute sets - same place, Lions Gate in Second Life.
