SNL’s Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig Star In ‘The Skeleton Twins’

Fans of SNL know that Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig are two of the funniest people who have ever been on the show. But, did you know how versatile they are? Last night I saw them both in person as they attended a screening of The Skeleton Twins. These two people really like each other, […]


James Brown: See “Get On Up” And Then Watch The T.A.M.I. Show

Critics are generally positive about the new biopic ‘Get On Up’ focusing on the interesting and complex life of James Brown. Chadwick Boseman gives a compelling performance as ‘The King Of Soul’, much like he did in last year’s big hit “42: The Jackie Robinson Story.” Backed by a strong cast including two top actresses […]


Oh Captain, My Captain : The Passing of one Of The All Time Greats

Robin Williams has left the building, and it is a very lonely building now without him. His quick wit, and lovable characters have entertained us since the late 1970’s when he first appeared on ‘Happy Days’ as Mork from Ork, later spawning his own very successful  hit show, ‘Mork And Mindy’. His spontaneity sustained him […]


Walt Disney’s Last Words: Kurt Russell ?

Movie mogul and television pioneer Walt Disney passed away  back in 1966. As you all know,Walt was an early creator of animation and children’s films, creating (and voicing) Mickey Mouse in 1927. Did you know the original first name for the now world famous mouse was actually Mortimer?  Fortunately, Mrs Disney talked him out of […]

The legendary Poncho Sanchez hits the stage this Thursday night in a benefit concert for the Blue Jay Jazz Foundation. I will hosting for the second year in a row, a cool evening of Jazz under the stars. Blue Jay Jazz raises funds for music programs and students who are constantly getting their budgets cut, providing […]


Route 66: The Road and the Romance at The Autry Center

Summertime is the perfect time to cruise all or part of the 2,448 miles of cars, asphalt, gravel,gas stations, diners,motels, billboards, armadillos, small towns, big cities, roadside attractions,semi buried Cadillacs, and neon lights that we call Route 66, also known affectionately as ‘America’s Highway.’ First paved in 1926 atop several stagecoach roads dating to the […]


Marvel Comic’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Is Coming To The Big Screen This Week

The latest Marvel comics big screen release is coming this Friday. Guardians Of The Galaxy is not predicted to be a super hit like a Superman or a Batman film, but it is every minute as compelling and far more interesting, especially if you don’t know the premise. I hit the film cold at a screening last month, […]


The ‘Lowdown’ on Boz Scaggs At The Hollywood Bowl

Boz Scaggs hit ‘The Hollywood Bowl’ Wednesday night with some of his own classic hits and music from his recent John Mayer produced CD, ‘Memphis.’ Recorded in a mere 3 weeks at legendary Royal Studios in Memphis, this release contains some of the same Southern Soul  flavor that vintage producer Willie Mitchell first captured with […]


Remembering Bobby Womack With His Top 5 Songs

Though he spent many years in the Los Angeles area, Bobby Womack grew up in Cleveland. Originally a Gospel group, the five Womack Brothers were signed to Sam Cooke’s SAR Records in 1962. Sam was a true pioneer in the music business, and had a great ear for talent. At Sam’s suggestion, Bobby, Cecil, Curtis, […]


‘Jersey Boys’ Come To The Big Screen

The surprisingly sordid story of the pop singing group ‘The Four Seasons’ has been tearing it up on (and off) Broadway for years. None other than Clint Eastwood tackled the very challenging directing chores for turning this hugely successful stage production into a film. Clint’s son Kyle, now a Jazz musician and living in France, […]
