Getting the Band Back Together!!

Shocked and saddened by Prince's untimely death, and not any less for Mr. Bowie's passing, it's more evident there's no time like the present to play music with the ones you love!  So I feel fortunate I'm going to get a chance to play again with my old band and dear friends this summer.   We'll be doing a show in Boston (Cambridge...) this JULY!  We have the venue, but waiting on a confirmed date... wanted to let you know Dan, Woody, Brian and I are looking forward to jamming together and hope you're around (psst..2nd week of July)!!!
 
Stay Tuned...

MOTION PICTURES released Digitally ALL OVER THE PLACE!

MOTION PICTURES released Digitally ALL OVER THE PLACE!
 
Although the CD was available for downloading on CDbaby, the 1999 live CD (released in 2002) is finally available on iTunes and too many other places to list.  There's a lot of information about the CD on this website regarding the special recording session, the players, video stills of the evening so peruse if you're curious.  Also, the "Enhanced" portion of the CD can be seen on YouTube.  It is a 6 minute documentary focusing on the making of the CD and the overall spirit of the night.
 
Let me hear from you about the CD.  Do you own it, listen to it still, wish you could have downloaded it eons ago and now you're happy you can?  Also, REVIEWS ARE WELCOME. Some people left reviews on CDbaby site, but we could always use them on the iTunes page or wherever you purchase music online. 
 
Many Blessings and Thank You!

LAYNE back at Molly Malone's in Los Angeles! RARE APPEARANCE!

If you're in LA this THURSDAY, MARCH 31st, I definitely don't want you to miss this rare LAYNE appearance and great bill (with lots of Boston roots!)  


I can tell you the whole night is full of great songs and musicians.  This is a CD release party for Still Spark (10pm) along with Reigning Monarchs (11pm) and Matt Bunsen and The Burners (8pm).  LAYNE's bassist USA plays super-cool guitar with the Reigning Monarchs and our drummer Jamie is keeping the beat with Matt Bunsen & the Burners.  And ALL of us love Seth Freeman (Little John fame) whose new project Still Spark is fantastic.  Check out the bands' websites at the bottom.  CD'S, as always, will be available at the show! 
 
Note: This is a strictly 21+ club.

The Paula Kelley Orchestra

Banquet Hall

MONDAY, SEPT. 17TH

8pm Paula Kelley Orchestra
9pm LAYNE
10pm Kay Hanley
11pm Banquet Hall

...MORE BELOW!

Just about everyone involved in the making of the EP Up From Down has at some point been a part of the Boston music scene -from producer Michael Eisenstein (Letters To Cleo guitarist) to mix engineer Tom Polce (Bill Janovitz/Buffalo Tom) to keyboardist Peter Adams (Tracy Bonham, Juliana Hatfield) and drummer Fred Eltringham (who before joining the Wallflowers played in one of Boston's finest bands Gigolo Aunts). So we wanted to keep the spirit going: share a sampling of the Boston musical tree that extends to LA.

BAH-STON Unite! In an effort to create community and thwart the "I'm here for this band (and out by the next band) mentality," the four bands represented on this bill are connected not just by their Boston music scene pedigree: Letters To Cleo, Cave Dogs, Boy Wonder, Laurie Geltman, Drop NIneteens, Miranda Warning, The Pills, and more, but by their actual appreciation and support for each other (plus two marriages and several multi-band members which cross over into all four bands). Follow the bouncing band members as they jump from one band to another throughout the night.

The EP is available at http://cdbaby.com/cd/laynemusic, iTunes and many online digital stores.

Parking is available in the Pay Lot directly behind the venue.
Limited street parking is also available.

So please come to hang out and enjoy a true musical community of
talented musicians and join in the celebration. Get there early for
drinks in the bar (no, it's not open, but we'll be there drinking) and
seeing old friends.

Befriend our friends:

This Summer: Laurie Geltman teaching kids to Rock the House!

Check out http://www.DayJams.com. A day camp for young rockers (ages 9-15) where Laurie will be an instructor in the LA and Pasadena, CA campuses. In one week, the kids join a band, write a song and perform it in front of hundreds of people the last day of camp! And they get a CD of the concert recorded by a professional sound team! Cool! Laurie has been working with kids musically for many years throughout her career and feels this is a great way of giving back what she's gained from touring, performing, leading a band and teaching music. There are locations ALL OVER the COUNTRY, so see if there's one near you: DAYJAMS!!

Happy Fourth Of July!
