The Winner of the U.K. Blues Challenge Takes her Act on the Road for Select Dates in the U.S.

Irresistible…inspirational…irrepressible. These are all qualities that encompass the essence of Northern Ireland’s Kaz Hawkins—the singer-songwriter known for her voracious vocals and riveting stage persona. It was announced today by her U.S. management, Lucy Piller of All Right Now Entertainment—in conjunction with Muscle Shoals Radio and Wilson-Piller Promotions--that Kaz Hawkins is set to infuse the U.S. with her bold and brash brand of soulful blues. Kicking off on December 7, 2016, American audiences will have the opportunity to experience the enthralling artist with her upcoming promotional tour, “Shake The States”.
As Piller puts it: “I have no doubt in my mind that Irish singer Kaz Hawkins will blow everyone away in the USA--it's time to share this one-of-a-kind ‘soul superstar’ with America—and beyond!”

Hawkins--the recent winner of the UK Blues Challenge--will be bringing her sizzle and sass to the states of Georgia, Arkansas, Tennessee and Alabama for select dates, which will include The Vista Room in Decatur, GA (Dec. 7th), The Snug in Canton, GA (Dec. 8th), The Winery in Nashville, TN (Dec. 9th), Fame Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL (Dec. 10th), Stephano’s in Sheffield, AL (Dec. 11th), Florence Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, AL (Dec. 12th), FloBama Downtown in Florence, AL (Dec. 12th), Lyric Theatre in Harrison, AR (Dec. 17th) and MadLife Stage & Studios in Woodstock, GA (Dec. 22nd).

I can't wait to experience this journey and bring amazing memories back to Northern Ireland with me--as everyone at home is excited too. With the great support from Lucy Piller of ARN Entertainment and Kiki Plesha of Rock Mother Promotions, I just know this will be the beginning of a very special future.”

"They Survived Together" - The True Story of the Neiger Family

LadyLake came across this fabulous project by John Rokosny and wanted to show our support!
John is working on a film, sharing the story of the Neiger Family, the only family believed to escape the Holocaust together and survive.

Additional information can be found here.

From John:
I would like to share the fundraising campaign for our new film, "They Survived Together", the incredible true story of the Neiger family and their desperate escape from the Nazis.

The Neiger family is believed to be one of the only families to escape the Holocaust together and survive.

The 5 siblings, (Sesha, Benjamin, Hanka, Basia and Tosia) who survived together with their parents, are all still alive and living on the Eastside of Manhattan!

As soon as I met the Neiger family, and heard their incredible story, I knew I had to make this film.

I was so moved by their story, I was brought to tears. My goal is to honor their journey.

I want to create a film that will tell the story of one family, in their own words, as a voice for every family who went through this atrocity. I want to honor those who survived, and remember, with deep reverence, those who did not.

I want to share this story so it will never be forgotten.

“They Survived Together” is a story of endurance, unity and hope.

We are offering many levels of involvement, from Donations to many Producer credits.

Thank you for taking the time to watch our short sample of the "They Survived Together".

Please share with anyone else who might be interested. Thank you.

*A percentage of what we raise will be donated to The Museum of Jewish Heritage.

Fans from around the Boston area, the country and the world will converge on Boston this November as International Pop Overthrow explodes into its 14th year in Beantown! IPO Boston will feature more than 25 of the best pop artists from the Boston area and beyond, and will take place from November 9-12, with all shows to be held at the very cool venue, PA’s Lounge.

The International Pop Overthrow festival made its debut in Los Angeles in 1998, and in 2016 celebrated its 19th straight year there. In 2001 the festival made its first of 14 consecutive appearances in New York, in 2002 made its inaugural stop in Chicago. In October of 2003 the festival became truly International as it made an appearance at the birthplace of The Beatles, Liverpool, England, where all shows were held at the world famous Cavern Club, and we celebrated our 14th year there in May! Since then we’ve added several U.S. cities to the IPO family, including Boston, Detroit, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, Austin and Atlanta, as well as three international cities: Vancouver, Toronto, and London, UK! In 2015 we added Stockholm, Sweden to the fold, and we will make our 2nd appearance there in May!

International Pop Overthrow has been covered in several publications such as Spin Magazine, The Boston Herald, The Boston Globe, The Chicago Reader, The Chicago Sun Times, The Illinois Entertainer, The Los Angeles Times, The San Fernando Valley Business Journal, The Orange County Register, L.A. Weekly, OC Weekly, The Baltimore Sun, New York Magazine, The New Yorker, The New York Post, Vancouver Westender, The Liverpool Echo, Creative Loafing, Billboard, CMJ, BAM, Goldmine, Amplifier, The Big Takeover, and various other publications from around the world, including the retrospective book, The Cavern: The Most Famous Club in the World, by noted Liverpool historian Spencer Leigh!

International Pop Overthrow is touted as the largest music festival of its kind, celebrating the musical styles made famous by such pop heroes as The Beatles, The Beach Boys and Badfinger while also focusing on the vast amount of music being made today by those artists who rely on melodic songcraft to express their musical tastes. From The Beatles to Cheap Trick and Tame Impala, the International Pop Overthrow Music Festival celebrates the evolution of pop music.

The entire schedule of events for IPO Boston can be found here, as well as on Facebook.

Featured Country Video: Stars and Stripes by Nathan Osmond

Sharing in support of our friend Nathan Osmond!

Nathan: "Thank you for featuring my music video, "Stars & Stripes." It's a project that I hold dear to my heart. I co-wrote this song with a lady in Scotland. Her name is Marwenna Diame. We wrote it via Skype. She asked me what I wanted to write about that day and I told her, "I want to write a song about the troops." She responded, "really?" I told her that I had been closing my shows forever with Lee Greenwoods hit, "God Bless The USA" and that I wanted to write my own song that came from my heart. We wrote the song in 30 minutes and it went all the way to #1 on the Independent Country Charts."

"The video has been seen on CMT & GAC as well as other major networks. Lou Dobbs was one of the first to show it on his show. It features real combat footage which we obtained directly from the military. The Army Chief of Public Affairs thanked me for my service. I told her that it was my father who had served. She told me that they count the family members as having served as well. She said, "We believe that the family members serve just as much, if not more, the the actual soldier."

"Ntune Productions produced this music video which we shot in the Bonneville Salt Flats of Utah. It even won "Best Music Video" at the Filmed In Utah Awards. Rick Priddis of Priddis Music was the executive producer and Brandon Beckham of Revolution Media was our cinematographer. We featured a real Utah Marine couple, Robert & Krista Iverson. Robert is the recipient of the Purple Heart as his tank was the first tank destroyed in the first invasion of Iraq. They were both in the audience the first time I sang this song publicly and I asked them if they would be in my music video. Their children are also featured in this video. Annin Flagmakers, the oldest flag company in America stepped up to be our sponsor. We feature their flags in the background."

"We hope that this video touches your hearts and helps to remind the viewer that freedom comes with a price. One of my favorite quotes comes from the late Ronald Reagan who said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We did not pass it on to our children through the bloodline. It must be fought for, protected and passed on to them to do the same. Otherwise, we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children of what life was once like in the United States when men were free." May God continue to bless the United States of America and may He continue to bless our troops and their families."

Behind the Scenes With Irish Jinger

1. Hello Irish!! It's great to be here with you! Can you please tell us briefly who you are, where we can listen to your show, etc.

- I'm Irish Jinger, radio host from The Irish Jinger Show who takes place every Friday on W4cy Radio at 4pm ET till end of July. I need to precise that from August the 1st my Show move to every Monday at 3pm ET same Radio Station.

2. How long have you been doing internet radio? How did you get started?

- I started my Radio Show to January 2014, a little more that 2 years ago then. I started thanks Jimmy Star and a lot of different coincidences... I first promoted new artists on FB & Twitter when I asked to Dean K. Piper (The Radio Owner) if I could make play them to Jimmy Star Show, he responded to me that Jimmy were already so busy and he offered me to having my own Show on the Radio Station. I first really doubted coz I were not sure to talking english fine enough that for hosting but I finaly accepted the oportunity and I really don't have regret to having did it.

3. What is the best thing about having a live internet radio show? What is the worst?

- The best thing is for sure the different connections that you have with different peeps, that it be the artists, producers, actors, writers but also the listeners! The fact to having a Live Show give you the oportunity to be more interactive with poeple and build a link with them and between them and the guests. The worst thing is that you become quickly addict to hosting! Lol! I mean, I've really difficulties sometimes to canalize my enthusiasm and 50 minutes by week is not enough for me, so sometimes I call in to the other Shows... I again need to manage this...

4. What has been the craziest thing a guest has done while live on your show?

- I've one or two differents stuff in my mind... The first is the second time that David Britt (A Country Artist) came to my Show and that he sang "Everybody Act Like An Animal" and that I did the animal's cry, we had a lot of fun to this Show and we were dead of laugh; the second one is less funny, Dean K. Piper had called to my Show when I had a guest and asked to me 5 minutes of Live for talking about something, I accepted but apparently not my guest and after having insulted my Boss, my guest is gone to the middle of the Show... Thanks to God, Dean accepted to stay and finished the Show with me and Rebel.

5. Now some fun questions!! We know you love pizza! What is your favorite pizza??

- My favorite pizza is definitely the "Margherita" even if I apreciate really this one to salmon too.

6. What is the strangest pizza you have had?

- You need to know that I like test new taste for pizza like by example the mushrooms and pumpkin pizza for Halloween that we tested Carla & I two years ago and since it is our official Halloween Pizza! But some months ago I would test "The Brussels Sprouts Pizza" and I need to confess that it was not a good idea... It is good but too stodgy, really too stodgy!

7. What is one pizza you would never eat?

- If there is something that I don't support on a pizza it is artichokes... I really hate that and another thing is herrings so I could easily respond that a "Herrings & Artichokes Pizza" should be one that you'll never see me eating! Ever!

8. What is in your refrigerator?

- You will find vegetables, meats and apple juice... Ha! Yes! I almost forgot... The more important! The mayonaise!!! I can't do without!

9. What is your favorite thing to drink?

- Like I said previously, I've always apple juice on my fridge. I'm a big fan of apple juice... I can almost saying that I'm addict to it even if I appreciate sometimes a Fanta too.

10. What is your favorite band / artist to listen to?

- It is really hard for me to respond to this question coz I listen to so much artists and so much good artists that I can't chose... In the old ones I like partically every Hard Rockers, AC/DC, Slades, Metallica, Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper and it's true that the Rock and especially Hard Rock stay my favorite style of music even if I can really apreciate some other style of music...

11. Where can we find you?

You can find me on Facebook: - Twitter: - Google + (Irish Jinger Show) - Linkedin (Irish Jinger) - Youtube (IRISHJINGER) - -
