Cabaret

The Resident Theatre Company (RTC) at Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center (236 North High Street, West Chester, http://www.rtcwc.org) has embarked on its third season and has started the journey with a musical that is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser – “Cabaret.”

“We took an email survey last season to find out which shows audiences wanted to see and ‘Cabaret’ was Number One,” said The Resident Theatre Company Marketing Director Rachael Lutcher, during a phone interview Wednesday afternoon from her office at the theater in downtown West Chester.

“Our first season was 2017-2018 and we presented ‘Monty Python’s Spamalot,’ ‘Next to Norma,’ and ‘Bullets Over Broadway.’ Last year, our three shows were ‘Evita,’ ‘Lend Me a Tenor,’ and ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

“This season, we start this month with ‘Cabaret.’  We’ll present ‘Into the Woods’ in December. The third production is ‘Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike,’ a comedy that is set in Bucks County.”

“Cabaret” has a storied history. The hit musical has won a Tony Award for Best Musical, a Tony Award for Best Original Score and a Tony Award for Best Musical Revival.  The RTC’s production of the show is running now through October 20 under the direction of RTC Artistic Director Kristin McLaughlin Mitchell.

“Cabaret” features some of the most memorable songs in theater history. Set in the infamous Kit Kat Klub, the show features some of the most well-known songs in theater history – songs such as “Cabaret,” “Maybe This Time” and “Willkommen.”

The Kit Kat Klub featured Sally Bowles, the Emcee, and a rousing ensemble known as the Kit Kat Klub Band. Their invitation to audiences was to come to the Cabaret and leave their troubles outside.

The story focuses on Cliff Bradshaw, a young writer from America, and his relationship with the English cabaret performer Sally Bowles.

A sub-plot involves the doomed romance between German boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor.

The Kit Kat Klub and its activities serve as a metaphor for the gloom-portending political scene in Weimar Germany in the early 1930s. The show demonstrates how people just wanted to have a good time.

“Cabaret” premiered on Broadway in 1966 and won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical as well as the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award and the Outer Critics’ Circle Award.

The initial revival of “Cabaret” first opened on Broadway in 1998 and won four Tony Awards — including Best Revival of a Musical. It ran on Broadway for six years.

The show returned to Broadway at Studio 54 in March 2014, with Alan Cumming reprising his Tony-winning role as the Emcee. It played 423 performances through March 2015.

The role of Sally Bowles in the play is an eclectic role that has been performed by many top-flight actresses – including Jill Haworth, Brooke Shields, Natasha Richardson and Michelle Williams. In the RTC production, it is played by Adriana Millbrath. Actors playing the other major roles are Jesse Manocherian (Master of Ceremonies), Christian Thomason (Clifford Bradshaw), Peter Reid Lambert (Ernst Ludwig), Gordon Stanley (Herr Schultz) and Audrey Federici (Fräulein Schneider).

“Our cast has a lot of actors from the Philadelphia area and a few from New York City,” said Lutcher. “They all came together for rehearsals here about a month before the show opened.”

“Cabaret” is an enduring success and has been drawing patrons to the theater for more than 50 years. Audiences love it because it’s so entertaining. People relate to each of these characters. Another factor in its popularity is that the music is beautiful, and the script is so well-written.

“Cabaret” is running now through October 20 at Uptown! Knauer Performing Arts Center. Ticket prices range from $25-$62.

Jealous of the Birds has nothing to do with flight envy or frustration with being stuck in the Northeast while feathered friends head south for the winter.

Naomi Hamilton

Jealous of the Birds is the name of the music project of Co Armagh’s Naomi Hamilton – one of Northern Ireland’s brightest young music talents.

Hamilton, who now lives in Belfast, Northern Ireland, has taken up a month-long residence in America’s Northeast to perform four-week residencies at a trio of rock clubs – in New York City at Rockwood Music Hall, in Boston at Atwood’s Tavern, and in Philadelphia at Dawson Street Pub (100 Dawson Street, Philadelphia, www.dawsonstreetpub.com).

Jealous of the Birds’ final two shows at the Dawson Street Pub are scheduled for October 10 and 17.

“I just figured we’d go about it old school,” said Hamilton, during a recent phone interview from Jersey City, New Jersey.

“America is a very big country and we’re a very tiny island. I figured I’d just go to three cities for a series of shows in each city and build up gradually.”

On the band’s Facebook page description of “genre,” the list includes “Indie, indie rock, alternative, punk, lo-fi, bedroom, acoustic, grunge, singer/songwriter.”

“I started Jealous of the Birds about five years ago,” said Hamilton. “I put out a wee EP in 2015 and it got some attention back home. Then, I put out ‘Parma Violets.’ After that, my manager Declan Legge and I decided it would be good to have a band to play it.

“So, I formed a band. It was a five-piece at first and now it’s a four-piece. It’s been a four-piece for two or three years. We’ve got Daniel McClaren on lead guitar, Jamie Hewitt on drums and Peter Close on bass. I play guitar and do the vocals.”

Steadily, Jealous of the Birds’ popularity started to grow.

“Next, we signed with Canvas Back/Atlantic Records and we made the ‘The Moths Of What I Want Will Eat Me In My Sleep’ in 2018,” said Hamilton. “This year, we put out our latest EP – ‘Wisdom Teeth.’ I recorded it at Toxic Studio in Northern Ireland with session musicians. The band is just a live thing.”

Ironically, music was never an intended career path for Hamilton.

“For me, music happened about accidentally,” said Hamilton. “I was mostly into poetry and creative writing. It wasn’t until I got to university – Queens University in Belfast – that I combined the two. From there, I got invited to play more gigs. By the time I graduated, I had developed into a full-time musician.”

“Wisdom Teeth” showed Hamilton taking her songwriting to a higher level.

According to Hamilton, “The songs on Wisdom Teeth were some of my favorites to write and the whole EP was such a joy to record. My hope is that this growth and sense ofdiscovery becomes tangible for the listener and they feel like they’re along for the ride.”

The shows at Dawson Street Pub will start at 8 p.m. each night. The opening acts are Valentina Sounds on October 10 and Matt Spitko Band on October 17.

Joyous Wolf

Joyous Wolf is a hard rock band from Southern California that has been around for four years. The band just released its debut EP earlier this year and is on several high-profile tours throughout the year.

On October 10, JoyousWolf — vocalist Nick Reese, guitarist Blake Allard, bassist Greg Braccio, and drummer Robert Sodaro — will perform at the Tower Theater (69th and Ludlow streets, Upper Darby, 215-922-1011, www.thetowerphilly.com).

“We’re on the road almost all of the time,” said Reese, during a phone interview Wednesday evening from a tour stop in Uncasville, Connecticut.

“We have eight more shows on this tour, and we have 32 total.

“Earlier in the year, we did 80 shows with Buckcherry and then seven with ‘Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators 2019.’ We will  have played 120-something shows since March.”

The musicians from Orange County, California have been friends a long time.

“We’ve been a band for four years,” said Reese. I’ve known two of the guys for six years and I’ve been friends with Robert, the drummer, since childhood. Robert and I always wanted to do something with music.

“I was going to college at Cal. State Fullerton and dropped out. I called a dude I met at a guitar center and Robert knew a guy who was a good bass player.”

Reese and Sodaro met on their first day of sixth grade during student orientation. They went to different high schools in Tustin where Sodaro met Braccio. During that time Reese, by chance, met Allard in the acoustic room at Guitar Center where they would jam CCR’s “Born on the Bayou.”.

“We put the band together in November 2015 and had our first show in February 2016,” said Reese. “We had no idea what we were doing. Blake asked me what kind of music the band would play, and I said – I don’t know…maybe hard rock.

“I still don’t know. We’re able to play anything. Fans are hungry for original music and that’s been a big motivator for me and the band.”

While the band’s influences might take a while to list, it’s obvious who Reese’s influences were – James Brown, Jim Morrison, Robert Plant, Eddie Vedder and Joe Cocker. In other words, Reese is a very animated front man.

“When I was young, my mother and I watched the movie of ‘The T.A.M.I Show.’ When James Brown came out on stage, I was blown away with his singing and dancing. He was an amazing performer.”

Roadrunner Records signed the band in 2017 and recently released the band’s first EP, “A Place in Time.”

“We released our debut EP in April,” said Reese. “We cut it in L.A. at Sunset Sound and West Valley Studio. It was produced by Howard Benson, who is a great producer. We were looking for a producer and he approached us.”

One of Joyous Wolf’s standout recordings is a solid cover of Mountain’s classic monster hit “Mississippi Queen.”

“We treated it with respect,” said Reese. “If you listen to our version, it becomes pretty obvious. I knew that we could do it right.”

The show at the Tower Theater with Joyous Wolf opening for Deep Purple will start at 8 p.m. Ticket prices start at $37.

Australia is a land all its own – a country that is geographically huge with a lot of towns and cities located in remote places. Tasmania is one of those remote places – an island state located off the southeast corner of the mainland. Hobart is Tasmania’s capital most populous city with a population of just over 200,00 people.

Psycroptic

Psycroptic is a death metal band formed in Hobart in 1999. The band was founded by brothers Dave Haley on drums and Joe Haley on guitar. The group’s lead vocalist, Jason Peppiatt, joined in 2004. The band’s newest member is bassist Todd Stern, who joined in 2015.

The band has released seven studio albums – “The Isle of Disenchantment” (2001), “The Scepter of the Ancients” (2003), “Symbols of Failure” (2006), “Ob(Servant)” (2008), “The Inherited Repression” (2012), “Psycroptic” (2015), and “As The Kingdom Drowns” (2018).
All year, the band has been touring the world in support of “As the Kingdom Drowns.” The tour is providing Stern with the opportunity to play shows near his home turf.

On October 10, Psycroptic will play on a multi-act at the First Unitarian Church (2125 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, www.firstuu-philly.org) with Voivod, Revocation, Skeletal Remains, and Conjurer

“I’m the American in the group,” said Stern, during a recent phone interview from a tour stop in Portland, Oregon. “I was born in New Jersey and grew up in the Port Monmouth/Toms River area. Our last show on this tour is New York and then I’m heading back to New Jersey.

“We’ve been touring almost non-stop all year. We went to Europe in June. We did Hellfest in France and the Obscene Extreme Festival in the Czech Republc. We even did a show in Dubai.”

It’s a lot of “seeing the world” for a dude from New Jersey and a trio of guys from the “Land Down Under.”

“Psycroptic was touring the states in 2015,” said Stern. “They needed a bass player, so they figured they’d get a guy from the U.S. They asked my friend who was the bass player in the band Revocation. He couldn’t do it and recommended me.

“I did that tour and then we did a tour of Europe in 2016. We continued to tour together, and I’ve been in the band ever since. ‘As The Kingdom Drowns’ is the first recording I’m on. I was in the band when the record started to be written back in mid-2017. We recorded it at the end of 2017 and into 2018. By March, we were filming videos in Tasmania.”

Many Americans have no idea what or where Tasmania is, but they are familiar with the term “Tasmanian Devil.” The Tasmanian Devil, commonly referred to as Taz, is an animated cartoon character featured in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons.

For the Australian members of Psycroptic, Tasmanian Devils are very real.

Long known as the “Tasmanian Devils,” they recently became the first band in the world to adopt their own Tasmanian Devil in an attempt to help preserve the critically endangered carnivorous marsupial. They gave their new mascot the name “Psycro.”

“With Psycroptic, the main songwriter is Joe,” said Stern. “Joe records the band. It’s just a home studio, but Joe is an audio genius. Jason does the lyrics. Joe and Jason work on the song structure together. Then, they tell me what they want me to play. I was home in New Jersey. They’d send me the tracks and I’d put in my parts.”

“As The Kingdom Drowns” was produced by Joe Haley and mixed and mastered by Will Putney. Released in late 2018, the new album immediately entered the Billboard charts at #17 for Top New Artist Albums and #25 for Current Music Albums followed by swift addition to multiple year end lists for Best Albums.

The show at the First Unitarian Church, which also features Voivod, Revocation, Skeletal Remains, and Conjurer, will start at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $25.

Laura Mann

Laura Mann, a veteran Philadelphia musician, keeps a lot of irons in the fire.

In addition to being a talented singer/songwriter, Mann has been a licensed therapeutic and medical massage therapist since 2002. In 2005 she opened her own practice in Ardmore — Relax. Therapeutic and Corrective Massage Studio — and she continues to practice massage. 

In March 2018, Mann opened The Living Room at 35 East, a boutique 40-seat listening room in Ardmore. The venue has featured notable regional and national touring artists including Craig Bickhardt, Jeffrey Gaines, Freedy Johnston and Michael McDermott.

Upcoming shows at Living Room (35 East Lancaster Avenue, Ardmore, www.thelivingroomat35east.com) are New York Citybased singer-songwriter Robinson Treacher and Toronto-based folk duo The Young Novelists on October 12 , singer-songwriters Julia Levitina and Cecilia Ferneborg on October 17 , Brian Seymour on October 18, Greg Sover Trio on October 19 and Lyra Project with special guest Jason Hinkle on October 20.

Mann’s weekly schedule always includes running the club and taking care of her massage patients. This week, her schedule gets more intense because she has an album release show on October 11 at the World Café Live (3025 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, 215-222-1400, www.worldcafelive.com).

In 1994, Mann produced and released her first album, “Like a Lamb Among the Lions,” and followed with the album, “I Got You,” in 2002. She released her third album, “Bow Tie and Rose Tattoo” in 2010. She also released the singles “The Child’s Got Wings” and “This Time” in 2016.

Now, Mann is ready to put out her fourth album, “Plain As Day.”

The album features “Take a Little Time,” an original composition, and a new take on the song “Eyes Without a Face,” the Billy Idol hit from 1984, as a duet with renowned singer-songwriter Freedy Johnston (“Bad Reputation”). There are also covers of “Never Let Me Down Again” (Depeche Mode) and “How Deep Is Your Love” (The Bee Gees). The remaining four songs are all originals by Ms. Mann; “Star” is a cowrite with Mitch Goldfarb (Cinderella, Teddy Pendergrass, Lou Rawls) and “Satisfied” is a cowrite with Dan Navarro (songwriter of Pat Benatar’s “We Belong”).

“I just wanted to do some songs that were very light,” said Mann, during a phone interview Wednesday afternoon from her home in Ardmore.

“I had an old song, ‘Take a Little Time.’ I liked the way I did it years and tears ago and I wanted to re-invent it. With ‘Eyes Without a Face,’  my producer and I were looking for a song from the 80s. We were in L.A. and that’s where Freedy is living now. We asked him to sing on the track with me and he was happy to do it.

“I was working with Charlton Pettus, who had been my producer on previous records. We were recording the album at a studio in Sherman Oaks. We recorded all but one of the tracks there going back-and-forth over a period of two years. We go in the studio for four or five days at a time.

“Charlton played most of the instruments. I didn’t play any instruments on the album. Usually, I do – but not on this one. It’s more poppy that my other albums.”

“Satisfied,” the only track not cut in California, was recorded by Grammy Award–winning producer Phil Nicolo (Billy Joel, The Rolling Stones) at Studio 4 in Conshohocken.

“I had a lot of Philly musicians on the track I recorded with Phil Nicolo,” said Mann.

The area players on “Satisfied” were David Uosikkinen (The Hooters, In the Pocket); guitarist Steve Butler (Smash Palace, In the Pocket); keyboardist Wally Smith (In the Pocket, Crosstown Traffic); Fred Berman (Amos Lee); guitarist Vahe Sarkissian (Countdown to Ecstasy, Sid Miller Band) and local bass guitar legend Chico Huff.

Mann’s backing band for the show at the World Café Live will include guitarist Vernon Reid (Living Colour), young Philly blues guitar ace Greg Sover, jazz harpist Gloria Galante, Greg Maragos (In the Pocket, Smash Palace), Uosikkinen, Butler, Smith, Berman Sarkissian, and a cappella vocal group Hotsy Totsy.

Mann’s players have a lot of music history – and so does Mann.

She grew up in a musical family in Medford, New Jersey and began performing in grade school concerts, where she often had solos. She continued performing in high school in choir and in musicals. When Mann was 16, she started singing professionally. She joined the band Elysian Fields and played with them for three years.

One day while performing at an outdoor concert, she was approached by drummer Mike Vesper, who said he was putting together a band with Robert Hazard (who wrote Cyndi Lauper’s hit “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”). Hazard was also living in Medford and invited Laura to join the band which became Laura and the Lifeboys.

After the band broke up, Hazard, who was also her manager, encouraged her to audition for Star Search (in New York City. She passed the audition and was flown to Los Angeles to compete there. She performed a Hazard-penned song called “You’re the Reason I” and won the first round.  Mann and Hazard then formed the Laura Mann Band, which lasted for a couple of years.  

Mann took a hiatus from music for several years as she pursued a career in the massage field. Then, she started working with Pettus again and made her third album, “Bow Tie and Rose Tattoo” in 2010. She also released the singles “The Child’s Got Wings” and “This Time” in 2016.

“In the show this Friday, I’ll be focusing mainly on songs from the new album,” said Mann. “But I’ll also be doing some songs from the past including ‘Just for Today,’ ‘Mansion Drive’ and In the Garden That We Grew.’”

The show at the World Café Live will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20.

Other upcoming shows at the World Café Live are Bedouine on October 12, Foy Vance on October 13, BJ the Chicago Kid on October 15 and Bob Schneider on October 16.

Gold Dime

When Andrya Ambro brings her band Gold Dime to Philly for a show at Jerry’s on Front (2341 North Front Street, Philadelphia, 215-425-5666) on October 11, it will be a homecoming of sorts.

Ambro, who has been involved in all sorts of music projects for the last two decades, grew up in Normandie Manor in Delaware just south of the Pennsylvania-Delaware state line. She attended two Delaware high schools with famous alumni – Archmere Academy (Joe Biden) and Ursuline Academy (Aubrey Plaza and Elena Delle Donne).

“I was about 12 when I started dabbling in music,” said Ambro, during a phone interview Tuesday from her home in Brooklyn, New York.

“My older brother was into alternative music and he got me a Pixies album when I was 12. I used to watch MTV all the time. I studied piano until I was 14 and then started taking drum lessons. My drum teacher was classically trained.

“I was in the Philadelphia Young Artists Orchestra and practiced all the time. I also had a band too and we were influenced by Fugazi. Then, I learned jazz drumming and got into free jazz. I bought every album of great jazz drumming that I heard.”

Ambro continued with her music education in college.

“I studied jazz performance at NYU (New York University),” said Ambro. “I came to New York in 1998 and I’ve been here ever since. I’ve been living in Brooklyn since 2002.

“I was studying jazz drumming at school and then got into hand drumming. It seemed more the organic thing that I needed. I went to Ghana for a while and studied kpanlogo drumming. I learned to use my voice there.

“When I came back to New York, I got into art rock and had a bunch of bands. In 2006, I had a solo project and got into synth stuff and used my voice more. Then, I got into a band where I just played drums. That band was Antonius Block.”

Antonius Block set the stage for her next musical endeavor.

“After that band, I started Talk Normal with Saran Register, who is a great engineer,” said Ambro. “I also work as an engineer. It’s a quick way to earn money.

“I wrote a lot of songs for Talk Normal. I started Gold Dime in 2014 and just continued to write songs. I like performing live, so I had people play with me. It was a constantly changing line-up for a long time.”

Gold Dime’s first release, “Nerves,” in 2017 was the first time Ambro has had no one to answer to but herself. On October 11, Gold Dime is releasing its new album, “My House.” It is a new, more collective effort, with Ian Douglas-Moore on bass and John Bohannon on guitar.
According to Ambro, “I can be a control freak. After Talk Normal, I was like fine, I’ll do everything, for my own independence and perhaps a desire to just, well, control things.”

This is much less the case with “My House.” Produced by Ambro and recorded and mixed by Ernie Indradat, the album was recorded in stages throughout 2018 with eight new tracks.

“The new album has some songs that we wrote together as a band,” said Ambro. “I lead it but some of the tracks we wrote together in the studio. I play drums and do voice – and some guitar. Ian plays bass and John plays guitar.

“We always road test the songs before we record them. That way, you can tell what works and what doesn’t. I would never just record without the live aspect.”

“My House,” according to Ambro, is intended to be something of a gruff father’s declaration at dinner, fist slamming on the table, but rather than the stubborn, undying manners that would come with “living under my roof,” she only demands that everything be done with the same degree of tireless dedication and authenticity.

 “I want every beat to be played with intention. ‘Cause why play if you don’t mean it?” Every moment of this album acts as just that—a demand to own something, whether it be self or art or place in this world. We have no choice but to listen, to respect it.”

The show at Jerry’s on Front, which also features Carnivorous Bells and Hatchers, will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10.

Dayseeker

When Dayseeker plays on a four-act bill with Wage War, Like Moths to Flames, and Polaris on October 11 at the Theatre of the Living Arts (334 South Street, Philadelphia, 215-222-1011, http://www.lnphilly.com), the band will be introducing its new album “Sleeptalk.”

Dayseeker — vocalist Rory Rodriguez, guitarist Gino Sgambelluri, bassist Ramone Valerio, and drummer Mike Karle – is a rock band from Orange County, California.

“We recorded ‘Sleeptalk’ on and off from November 2018 to April 2019,” said Rodriguez, during a phone interview Wednesday as the band travelled from a show in Pittsburgh to a gig in New York City.

The album was finished this spring and released this fall – on September 27 on Spinefarm Records.

According to Rodriguez, “‘Sleeptalk,’ as a single and album, is our proudest work to date. We’ve never felt more confident in our music than this very moment. The music video explores a toxic relationship with a couple who have separated but continue seeing one another after the fact. The underlying message is how we sometimes would rather live in misery than separate from someone we love so dearly.”

After several years of hard-nosed touring throughout North America and Europe — including impressive showings on the final cross-country Vans Warped Tour last year — Dayseeker returned  to Southern California to establish its new sound in familiar territory. Entering the studio with budding producer and close personal friend, Daniel Braunstein, the band embraced a uniquely Los Angeles sound.

“Making the album was a long process,” said Rodriguez. “Our engineer was local. Daniel’s studio is in L.A., so we’d go there on and off.

“He was very optimistic. He’d let us try anything we wanted to do – even if he didn’t agree. It was very collaborative.

“The album is a giant step. In its first week, it quadrupled its hits. The reception to the new album has been great. The band is moving forward positively.”

Dayseeker’s evolution has moved into fourth gear. The band’s sound is more expansive than ever.

“As we’ve gotten older, we’ve lost a little passion for writing heavier music. We’re not listening to metal and hardcore as much as we used to. With the new album, we had more fun putting in melodic aspects.

“We were a little nervous about our old fans not liking our new music but that hasn’t been what’s happening. I think we just wanted to pay more attention to song structure with good choruses. We experimented with 80s style and more ethereal music – ethereal and atmospheric. We wanted it to be more alternative than metal. We didn’t want to put out an album with 10 tracks of screaming. We didn’t want to recycle the same sound.”

The music has evolved lyrically and sonically.

“I feel really proud of a lot of the lyrical content,” said Rodriguez. “With songwriting, the more you do it the better you get. With this album, there is a level of authenticity with the songwriting. The songs are about a lot of topics people can relate to. Things definitely change as you get older.”
