HOLLY, Mich. — Air Force rock band Flight One from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, has teamed up with local Detroit recruiters and a blitz team from the Recruiting Service of the Air Force at local schools for three days filled with concerts and Air Force membership information Nov. 15-18, 2022.

The band incorporated a 45-minute Q&A with the high school jazz band into the program, played a 40-minute interactive rock concert, and even entertained an impromptu “Thriller”-style dance with a few students from the audience. .

“It gives students a chance to see what life is like as a professional musician,” said Ben Baldwin, band manager of Holly High School. “For my students, it gives them the opportunity to combine service and music. I did that when I was in the US Marine Corps band and it gives them exposure to something like that.

During time with the students of the jazz band, Tech. sergeant. Andrew Clemmons, drummer, asked about the best ways to practice timing. He responded with a demonstration on using a metronome for practice and offered tips of the trade for bringing a boring metronome to life.

The seven-member rock band that boasted an Air Force retiree on vocals rocked the 350-student high school stadium with a world-class performance that opened the door to discussions on many programs that the military has to offer interested students.

“We want to give students the opportunity to come see us and talk with us without any pressure,” Tech said. sergeant. Joe Whitt, musical director and bassist. “We love when they ask us questions about recruiting, military life and the options available to us.”

During the energetic group performance, the students were invited to the floor and led in a group dance that ended when one student outperformed the others in finishing their dance by performing the floor dance move “the worm”.

“It’s a great school and a beautiful area, but that doesn’t mean these students want to stay here after they graduate. We’re here to let them know they can go talk to a recruiter and have the authority to say ‘no’ if they find they’re not interested,” Whitt said. “[The students] may not know that just talking to someone about the military doesn’t mean they have to commit to enlisting.

As part of the concert, Airman 1st Class Christopher Arellano, guitarist, sat among the students while playing his guitar behind his back, then quickly walked to the other side of the gym to join Staff Sgt. Greg Pfluch, saxophonist, where the two had a musical battle among the audience.

Opening doors and taking the first steps to having tough conversations about life-changing decisions is what the Air Force band is designed to do. Using music as the denominator of common language helps start those difficult conversations between a curious high school student and an active duty member that might otherwise be too intimidating for the student to begin.

The primary purpose of the three-day recruiting drive was to bring information about the Aim High Flight Academy program, provide an overview of Air Force commissioning programs and the enlistment process to students from the Detroit area and surrounding areas. Using the group was just one more key to help unlock the possibilities found in the Air Force and a way to start having conversations about those options.

This is the last part of a three part series.

Jared Dines Calls ZZ Top’s 17-String Bass “Ripoff” https://deimel.biz/jared-dines-calls-zz-tops-17-string-bass-ripoff/ Tue, 15 Nov 2022 19:37:14 +0000 https://deimel.biz/jared-dines-calls-zz-tops-17-string-bass-ripoff/ As reported by American Songwriter, ZZ Top bassist Elwood Francis played an odd 17-string bass during the band’s recent November 5 show for the rock band’s 1983 song, “Got Me Under Pressure.” .

As reported by American Songwriter, ZZ Top bassist Elwood Francis played an odd 17-string bass during the band’s recent November 5 show for the rock band’s 1983 song, “Got Me Under Pressure.” .

Well, now there’s some online beef surrounding the event.

In a social media kerfuffle, Francis and YouTube guitarist Jared Dines went back and forth on the instrument, with Dines calling it a “scam” of his 18-string Ormsby guitar, which he ordered in 2018.

“I can’t with this…” Dines wrote on Instagram. “When ZZ Top uses a fraudulent version of my 18 string guitar on a website. It even has ‘JD’ on the 12th fret, LOL.

After Dines posted the message, Francis added his own response on Instagram, claiming that his 17-string bass was, yes, in fact, a copy of Dines’ 18-string.

Francis wrote: “Thought I would use this bass once or twice for no other reason than for fun. It’s such an absurd instrument. We all laughed and moved on.

He added, “However, there’s been too much attention not to mention the guy who came up with the idea: Jared Dines. The bass I play is a Chinese-made POS. It’s a half copy of something he’s playing and he’s probably all pissed off.

“I don’t know if he designed it, but the cat is an amazing musician and sees me playing simple bass lines that I could play with just one string, while he worked the music to use this damn The dude has gone beyond the 17 string and I would suggest checking him out just to see what he does with it. I just hope he has a sense of humor.

Dines then commented on Francis’ post, wishing to crush any beef, “Not pissed at all! I thought the photo of you playing was touched up at first. I like it to be real! Guitars are changed and redone all the time, I’m glad you had fun with it.

Francis replied, “Man, I can’t believe you play that stuff! We thought it was a joke but then [found] learned about you and watched videos. Good damn! The joke is on me because I have to play this piece of contraband shit.

Francis received the instrument from Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top who bought it for him as a joke.

Said Francis, “I was researching the internet at night [and] shot a photo of this crazy 17 string bass. I sent Billy a picture and we laughed and joked about trying to use it.

Francis added that Gibbons showed up with the instrument “a few weeks later” after Francis “forgot about it”.

Dominic Acito: Congratulations on the new record. It’s really super. You released a demo album titled broken songs beforehand. How was it for you to see the songs reach an audience before you really felt done with them? Did you feel like you were responding to feedback from people who had heard the demos?

Carl Shane: The songs changed a lot, but not because of the feedback, because honestly there wasn’t a lot of feedback on it. I think when I took out the broken songs stuff, there was so much going on. I thought I was going to make a decent amount of money for the recording, but that’s definitely not the case. It was just that there was so much going on that I understand it doesn’t count as a real release. I think our official full album is always going to get a lot more attention, and there’s also, like, the PR behind it and the label behind it. So, me putting out demos, it’s just for the real enthusiast, and it’s not like that and that from Houston, Texas, it’s gonna be like, hey, that’s what I thought. I haven’t really had a lot of feedback on it. And honestly, I don’t know, I might be wrong, but some people might have bought it just to support us and maybe didn’t even listen to it. I have no idea. So the songs didn’t change at all based on the feedback. It’s just that all the songs have changed just because a lot of these demos are just by myself.

When we get together with a band, everyone’s taste and style affects the song and changes it and honestly changes it for the better, in my opinion. I’m not too attached to my vision or anything, but I also understand that people who play in Kal Marks really don’t get paid. We do it because we love it. I hope we can make some money. But I have to respect their time, so if they’re going to be part of it, they want to have their voices heard, in fact, most of the time.

Just, like, letting the other band members have their say and it’s all good for them and it’s good for the songs because I can’t play drums. Leave that to someone who’s been playing drums his whole life.

DA: There’s a cover of the Sopranos theme on it. Did you watch the Sopranos in confinement?

CS: Yeah, we started watching it during lockdown and I had never watched The Sopranos before and fell in love with it. It was really a lock watch. We hardly saw anyone. So it started with my friend Pat from Bethlehem Steel and he’s also in a new band that I’m in with Christina from Kal Marks and Bethlehem Steel. We were just watching it on Zoom Together and yes, I fell in love with that show. I can’t believe it took me so long to watch it.

DA: It’s a big commitment. What’s interesting, though, is that I don’t know if you’ve seen The Wire, but the intro to this definitely sounds like a song that could be on my name is hell because this record has so much to do with heaven and hell and the devil and God, themes like that. I know you are also a fan of Tom Waits and he wrote the theme song “Way Down in the Hole”.

CS: Yeah. I love Tom Waits. Frankly. Everyone complains about the Sopranos theme song, it seems. I actually love it, and I think it’s kind of iconic, but maybe it could have been a better song if it was by someone like Tom Waits.

DA: Yeah, it really feels like the 90s. Did you like the song right away, or did you eventually start liking it because you had heard it so much?

CS: I had heard it even before watching the series because one of my best friends, she was obsessed with the series. it was funny, when i was going to hang out with her and her husband, i would hear the song because they had it in the background. So I thought to myself, what is this song? And she’s like, oh. She’s like, I’m deep into the Sopranos. Yeah. I get the fandom of this one.

On the first night of November, following Halloween, fans lined the streets of New Haven, Connecticut, awaiting a unique performance from one of music’s most respected guitarists. His diverse musical career has seen him endorse titles such as “virtuoso guitarist”, “visionary composer” and “accomplished producer”. His reputation precedes him. He is Steve Vai.

Steve Vai – College Street Music Room

New Haven, Connecticut – November 1, 2022

The one and only performer to take the stage that night at College Street Music Hall, Steve Vai and his band of talented guns for hire, took the stage at 8 p.m. The set started with the band’s drummer Jeremy Colson pounding the toms as Vai prowled from stage right.

The evening kicked off with Avalancha, from the band’s 2022 release Inviolate. Contrary to what I expected, this was by no means an ordinary rock n’ roll show. The whole building was packed but all the patrons were seated, mesmerized by the maestro on the stage in front of them.

With a variety of Ibanez guitars, Steve Vai moved his fingers along the neck with ease and grace. Between the slowest and fastest lines of musical poetry, the room was so quiet you could hear a pin drop.

After a few songs, Vai takes the mic and explains why this tour was postponed and tells a story about being injured while making pizza. Sharing this story humanized this guitar god and gave audiences a moment to pick their jaws up off the floor.

The band go back to 1995 for Tender Surrender from the GRAMMY award-winning EP, Alien Love Secrets. Fast forward in time, we were back to new material from Vai with Lights Are On, released in 2016 and Candlepower from this year’s album.

Unlike most bands, not only was the set filled with Vai’s instruments, but it also featured standout solos for each of the band members. Starting with a bass solo from Phillip Bynoe, followed by a guitar solo from David Weiner, and last but not least, drummer Jeremy Colson with a heartbreaking drum solo later in the set.

Throughout his two-hour career, Steve Vai rocked a collection of fine Ibanez guitars, but of course the highlight was his brainchild, the Hydra. This mystical instrument features two guitar necks, a bass neck and a variety of harp-like gear.

After more than three decades in the industry, 15 million albums sold and three GRAMMYs, this is one of the most unique creations of Vai’s career. The evening ended with a heartbreaking performance by Fire Garden Suite I – Bull Whip.

Every year, we like to pause and take stock of the year’s best-selling gear. What’s hot? What is not? And how do this year’s winners compare to previous bestsellers?

Yesterday we explored the best-selling synths and electronic gear of 2022. Today we’re looking at guitars, with pedals, amps and recording gear to follow.

Below, we take a few different looks at the guitar market: Our first list is an overview of the best-selling guitars that came out in 2022, including electric, acoustic and bass guitars. After that, we also look at overall sales across all of those subcategories.

To note: All rankings are determined by the total number of orders, i.e. the actual number of items sold, not the total price of items sold. Reverb-exclusive releases are not reflected in these rankings. And because Reverb welcomes individual sellers, independent bricks and mortars, and manufacturers, our rankings include all sales, whether new or used.


Best Selling Guitars Released in 2022


A few things worth noting from the list above:

  • It should come as no surprise that the PRS SE Silver Sky is the year’s top seller, since it was the affordable version of the John Mayer Signature Silver Sky that was itself a top-selling guitar last year (and this year, as you can see below). ).
  • Squier’s super cool Baritone Custom Tele has led a number of budget Fender brand new releases, like the 40th anniversary models on the list. This new baritone is also a good companion for another guitar that had a very big year, the Classic Vibe Bass VI from Squier.
  • Polyphia’s Tim Henson is one of the most impressive and popular modern guitarists, and the rapid sales of his newly released nylon-string electro-acoustic signature are a testament to his growing influence. (While the high sales of the limited-edition George Harrison Rocky Strat prove there’s still plenty of love from the “boomer bend” crowd.)
  • Yamaha’s Revstar series received an overhaul earlier this year and two Revstar II models make it onto this best-selling list. Chambered body guitars are lighter than they look and are great bargains, priced at $799.

Best Selling Electric Guitars of 2022


One of the stories from last year that came out of our best-selling guitars list was that the original PRS John Mayer Silver Sky outsold all of the American-made Fenders on Reverb. This year, that’s no longer true, with the American Professional II Strat overtaking the American-made Silver Sky. But what’s true is that the Korean-made SE Silver Sky outperformed every other guitar model on Reverb, no matter where in the world they were built.

One notable finalist that nearly cracked the Top 20 is the Kramer Baretta Special, a $179 powerhouse that also sold incredibly well this year.


The best-selling bass guitars of 2022


The Beatles’ So be it documentary released last Thanksgiving has spurred interest in one of the most surprising gear cameos: the band’s Fender VI. While these six-string basses had sold moderately well previously, Squier’s Classic Vibe Bass VI model – the only Bass VI in current production – got all the extra attention.

Although it tops our list of best-selling basses, it occupies a sonic space closer to a baritone than a standard bass. So if you’re curious, if it had been included in our best-selling guitar list above, it would have come in at #10, just after the Squier Affinity Telecaster.


Best Selling Acoustic Guitars of 2022


This 2022 bestseller list for acoustic guitars is remarkably similar to last year’s. Once again, the Gretsch G9500 Jim Dandy, a parlor guitar under $200, tops the list. It is followed by the Fender American Acoustasonic Telecaster, up one spot from last year and just one of many Acoustasonic models on this list.

Travel guitars, which as a class have sold well over the past two years, continue to be well represented here, with several Taylor GS Minis and smaller Martins claiming spots in the Top 20.


What stands out to you in our bestseller lists? Let us know.

Ragtime Washboard Kings – probably the only band ever, in New Zealand, to feature not one but two washboard players.

Alongside acoustic and resonator guitars, double bass, fiddle, lap steel, mandolin, djembe, cajon and more, it promises to be an audio feast for Kauaeranga Music’s final concert of 2022.

Versatile bluesman par excellence, Mike Garner, with eight albums to his credit, has toured internationally to Australia, Japan, Europe, the United States and even Kathmandu, Nepal for the Himalayan Blues Festival. Mike plays ragtime, blues and other pre-war American music as if he had lived it.

Some of Mike’s impressive accolades include appearing on Dan Ackroyd’s syndicated radio show House of Blues Hour, as well as a supporting slot for Motown masters The Four Tops, The Miracles and The Temptations, fronting 50,000 people at the Mission Estate concert in 2010.

Robbie Lavën has a long experience as an international musician with Red Hot Peppers. Robbie contributes a wide range of backing instruments – mandolin, fiddle, stroh fiddle, lap steel guitar, harmonica and washboard.

On double bass, Stuart Lawrence de Dargaville worked with the Whangarei Big Band.

On percussion and washboard, longtime Motueka associate Warren Houston has toured with Mike in Australia, New Caledonia and Nepal, and recorded on most of Mike’s albums for over two decades.

In a review of the band, Vincente Zumel of Hora Del Blues, a Barcelona radio station, said: “Without a doubt, Mike Garner is one of New Zealand’s best known and most popular blues musicians. A singer with an evocative vocal style, he also plays acoustic and electric guitar, slide, resonator guitar, bass, mandolin and harmonica.

Wild Pink will perform around 7pm today at Jamestown Skate Products, 209 Pine St. Photo submitted

You never thought a band would get its name from a trip to the grocery store.

This is exactly what happened with the band Wild Pink.

According to the group’s founder, John Ross, he was out shopping one day and saw a can of wild prawns. The name just stuck.

What started as a way to write songs for Ross turned into a full-time gig. Since 2014 he has been writing songs for the group. It draws inspiration from everyday things, he says. Ross sings and plays guitar.

“I think nature and the outdoors are probably important. I mean, our everyday life too, “ He noted. “There are a lot of images of nature.”

Ross said he would demo it in his home studio and then pitch the song to the rest of the band.

“I demonstrate everything at home. I flesh out drums and bass (guitar). I give it to the band and they kind of take ownership of it. he said. Ross added that flexibility is what gives music its authenticity.

“It’s a huge part of our sound – what they do with the song and the demos”, he said.

He said he uses Apple’s Logic Pro X to record demos. Then he makes an mp3, and distributes it to the rest of the band members. He lives in Redhook while the bassist and drummer are based in Buffalo, so the rest of the band will get together before a tour and further refine the songs, he said.

“I try to spend a lot of time getting into each song. You know, I like not being a perfectionist, but when I write a song, I really live it for a while. So by the time it’s recorded, hopefully I can kind of support it after the fact. said Ross.

Wild Pink will perform around 7pm today at Jamestown Skate Products, 209 Pine St. The band are currently touring in support of their new release. “ILYSM.” Also performing tonight is a New York-based Trace Mountains. Throughout November, the band will be touring Europe.
