Boo’z Hump Day Helper “What day is it?”

So I am driving into work today and I am listening to the radio as most of us do. But first I have a confession to make.  I am a scanner, I listen to whatever station comes in next and listen until I am dissatisfied.  Some days it’s talk radio, others it’s the HOT MIX station that your teenagers listen to in the morning.  Today I find myself listening to a small station, and they say it is “National High School Radio Day”.  I thought to myself ‘I had no idea this existed’ and exactly how many of these official “Days” are there. So with a little research from my good buddy (insert search engine here) I found out.  Did you know that April is: National Humor Month International Guitar Month Keep America Beautiful Month Lawn and Garden Month National… Read More >

Tom Rush at Rams Head On Stage Sunday, April 6th

 Photo Credit:  npr.org Great ‘stache, great songwriting.  Those are the first two features you recognize when you give folk singer Tom Rush a quick look and listen.  Delve deeper, and you’ll notice much more. Before his mustache and notoriety grew, Rush was an English student and self-taught guitarist at Harvard University performing at Club 47 (now known as Club Passim) in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  He met a number of other folk performers at this time and released two albums before signing with Elektra Records in 1965 for his next three albums. These recordings from that time are some of the best folk songs the Sixties ever heard outside of Bob Dylan’s first nine, legendary albums.  Rush’s covers of original songs by rising folkies and friends Joni Mitchell and James Taylor helped them build their own careers, and jumpstart what Rolling Stone… Read More >

A Conversation with Austin Ellis of NBC’s The Voice

It seemed to spring out of nowhere, the news that local singer-songwriter Austin Ellis was chosen to be on Team Adam of NBC’s The Voice Season 6! I was lucky enough to chat with Austin about The Voice, what he’s been up to lately, and his time with us here at Rams Head before he became a big star! LP: Austin, we are SO thrilled that you made it so far on NBC’s The Voice, something you should be really proud of! I understand you first auditioned for The Voice last summer in New York. What was it that inspired you to audition for the show? AE: I was at a point in my artistic career where I was questioning whether or not I wanted to continue on this path, or if I wanted to try something different. I said to… Read More >

Todd Rundgren Rocks Rams Head On Stage – by Matt Ellis

Photo Credit:  raleighmusic.com Todd Rundgren growled at the sold-out Rams Head On Stage crowd last night:  “The theme of the night is befuddlement…” Sticking tightly to that loose theme of confusion and unpredictability, Rundgren and his motley crew of musicians wove their way through an eclectic tapestry of classic and not-so-classic tunes, while Rundgren maintained his familiar, if somewhat off kilter, rapport with the audience.  “People seem to like it when I talk,” he smirked in a deep, grumbling voice that can only be compared to that of comedian Lewis Black.  “Tonight, I don’t even know what I’m going to play next, so these guys are going to be really confused,” Rundgren added, motioning to his band mates, who, in a fitting reflection of the great variety of music to be played, all looked like they had been plucked from… Read More >
