Everybody Scream!

Dec 31, 2012

By: Krista Doran
screamIf you like live music and are looking for a band that provides a high energy party-like atmosphere, then you need to check out the band Scream.
Scream was formed back in 2009 by Danny Nogo from the band Digital Getdown.  Now newly re-vamped using the same formula they started out with, this new line-up also features female vocals keeping a focus on pop-driven music.
The band plays everything you love in the Top 40, Rock and Country genres and now with rapper with Nicky T in the band, Scream is able to bring back some more dance hip hop songs as well. This ALL NEW line up has been rehearsing for about 4 now and their very first show is scheduled for Saturday, January 12th at McStew’s Irish Sports Bar located at 5316 New Falls Road in Levittown.
Scream is a band that plays whatever it takes to keep people on the dance floor.  I spoke to Danny Nogo about the all new line up and he told me, “when you come to a Scream show we want to take you away from all your troubles, show you a good time and remember anytime your feeling down, just come scream with us and we will take care of you!”
The new band is:   Nicky T (Rapper/Lead Vocals), Jessica Lauren (Lead Vocals) Joe Lowery (Guitar), Joey Potts (Bass), and Kyle Moken (Drums).  This band has something for everyone…if you want to dance, rock out or even line dance, you can do that at a new Scream show!  Be sure to check them out at McStew’s or starting on January 17th, every Thursday at the new Sheffield Taven!  To see the full line-up of shows, get more info about the band or to get booking information please go to their website, www.screamband.com.

By:  Krista Doran
courtney_jansen_article_photoEvery once in a while a brand new original artist comes fourth from the Philly area that inspires all of us with their music.  Many of you already know the artist I am about to present from her band Gypsy Wisdom and have grown to love her; not just for her musical talents, but also for the truly beautiful person she is.  Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Courtney Jansen!
Courtney just release her CD, “Closer To Eden”, an expressive, fresh and energetic collaboration between Courtney, her husband Danny Gunz, and co-writer and producer Stephen McKnight.  The soulful and poppy, positive sounds of her CD come from her inner-strength and leads the listener down Courtney’s own personal path of self-awareness. I first met Courtney a few years back, when a mutual friend of ours, Lori Stidham, gathered a bunch of local musicians together for an event she called, Lovefest.  I was instantly drawn to Courtney.  She has a glow of peace and love around her, and it embraces you whenever she performs.  She is just one of those people that has a warmth about her everyone appreciates. I had the privilege of interviewing Courtney, and instead of working the questions into a story like I do for most interviews, I decided to just print the questions and answers below, so that all of our readers could get a better idea of her personality.  Here is what we discussed:


Q: Who are your major influences?
A:  Whitney Houston and Alanis Morissette

Q:  How long have you been together?
A:  This project has only been myself, my husband (Danny Gunz), producer/songwriter (Stephen McKnight), and two stellar drummers (Bobby Pyrilis and Kevin Soffera). We’re not a band per say. Me, Danny, and Stephen have been working together on this project for about a year now.

Q:  Why this group of guys/what’s the chemistry like?
A:  Well the chemistry with my husband is a given:) Knowing someone so deeply has allowed us to finish each other’s sentences and, in this case, lyrics. Stephen has proven to be the perfect piece to finish this tripod off. When one of us hits a creative wall, someone is always there to break it down with a fresh idea.

Q:  Who writes your songs? What the main inspiration for most of your songs?
A:  It’s very collaborative between the 3 of us. The general pattern has been, I come up with the initial subject matter, Danny gives it a rewrite with fresh eyes, and Stephen composes music around it all. But, it’s really a mix of all those things. As for the inspiration, this whole album has been about self discovery, inner strength, and moving on.

Q:  What is the process you use to write?
A:  For the first two tracks, I had little voice memos on my phone that I brought to Danny and Stephen and we built up from there. The last track, “Surrender”, was a song that Stephen had begun writing a while ago with me in mind, so we just started grooving with that sweet guitar lick and came out with a sweet EP closer.

Q:  Has your music evolved since you first began playing music together?
A:  Very much so. We actually tried to get this project fired up in 2010, but as always with life, things happened and we had to put in on pause. The songs I was going to record in 2010 are much different than what we have with Closer To Eden. As I always say, “everything happens for a reason” and where I was during this writing process in 2012 was more where I wanted to be as far as inspiration and creativity.

Q:  What has been your biggest challenge as a band?
A:  TIME! As you know, Danny and I are in the cover band Gypsy Wisdom and Stephen is in the cover band Steal the Sky. Between the travel, life’s daily chores, and everything else sometimes it’s hard to get out there and do all the things I’d like to do with this EP. But, we accept challenges! And, time will be what it will be. We have things in the works for 2013 and as long as I put them in my iPhone, they will ALL GET DONE! haha

Q:  What genre would you say you fall under?
A:  Pop rock

Q:  What are your shows like?
A:  Our first original show will be in the new year, but I can tell you what those will be like. Energetic, warm, emotional, and definitely entertaining, especially with the line up of musicians who will be around me:)

Q:  How do you all like touring?
A:  When you do what you love with people you love, does it really matter where you are? Nah;)

Q:  What do you want everyone to know about your band?
A:  Once upon a time, I wanted to be a famous performer. I wanted to be on Star Search with Ed McMahon soooo bad. haha. That carried over for awhile. I wanted the world to know my name. Over the past few years, as I’ve really come to know who I am, that shifted… big time. Now, I just want to inspire people to know themselves as they really are through the beauty of music and lyrics. The world can be a tough place if we let ourselves believe all the hype about appearances, material things, etc. But none of that is important. Being strong and healthy is beautiful. Sharing love is beautiful. That’s what I”m trying to do with my songs:)

Q:  What have you done locally?
A:  I have been working in radio stations for the past couple years recording radio jingles and I have very supportive friends who are working on some things for us, I’ll keep you posted. There is also a World Cafe Live show in the works that will be with two amazing women artists. This will be a highlight of my life kinda night.

Q:  What do you want the Philly area to know about you and the band?
A:  We’re comin’ for ya! Make sure to check the website (www.courtneyjansen.com) for all upcoming events and info. We plan to get out and share what we got in the new year and I hope to have people feeling like they’re on cloud nine after a night of positive messages on sweet melodies with some very talented musicians.

Q:  What’s your advice for new original bands?
A:  Just be honest. Never write or play a note for someone else. Make it real from your heart because at the end of the day, we all have different taste in music. We’re not going to please everyone. So make something that you are proud of. That’s what original music is all about for me:)


You can check out the first single from the CD entitled, “The Girl I Used To Be”, on itunes, and you can also grab the CD on CDBaby.  Simply go to her website www.courtneyjansen.com to check it out right now!  All of us here at the OOT would like to congratulate Courtney, Danny and Stephen on such a wonderful offering of great music!

Interview By: Roundhouse Ron
Photo_2(1)When this charming young lady entered the room with her bright red pig tails, I could definitely tell I was in the presence of a very talented future mega star. I had the pleasure of personally interviewing this very hard working musical artist that goes by the name of “Tina DeCara”. Grab a bottle of water, relax & enjoy this very special “Out On the Town Entertainment Paper” featured interview …..
RR ~ I must ask, for such an amazing young musical artist, how old are you?
Tina ~ I am 16 years old.
RR ~ So, I am gonna assume you are in high school?

RR ~ What is the most rewarding part of being famous?
Tina ~ Doing charity work & benefit shows for awesome organizations like the “Jamie Isaacs Foundation for Anti-Bullying”, “Animal Abuse Rights” & “Equal Rights for All”. Giving back is part of my total happiness.

RR ~ I seriously enjoyed your music video for “Crazy About You” & was wondering, any plans for a another music video in the works?
Tina ~ So funny you asked that, cause I am currently making plans for a new music video project with Carlos Mojica from Chicago, that will be from my February 2013 single release song.
RR ~ What would be your future goals?
Tina ~ To have a lifelong career in singing & acting as a humble professional. Continuously inspiring girls & boys to positive would also have to be a goal of mine.

DininG ArounD TowN with Roundhouse Ron
Photo_3
All I gotta say to my friends is “Paddy Whacks”, after a very positive joyful response, they always ask me which one my dude? On this God given day, I choose to do a foodie review on the Welsh Road location just off of the Roosevelt Boulevard in NE Philadelphia. There is currently 3 locations, with the other 2 being at “Paddy Whacks” Comly Road (also just off of Roosevelt Boulevard) & “Paddy Whacks” South Street (corner of 2nd Street).
Photo_4
This really cool concept of bringing an Irish pub together with a casual sports bar, combining these ideas & opening them all in an awesome city like Philadelphia has to be the best idea since sliced bread. Since opening the 1st “Paddy Whacks” location at Welsh Road in May of 2004, all I have been hearing is spectacular & exciting comments. Owned by a few local hometown brothers, “Casey Jones”, “Mathew Jones” & “Donald Jones (DJ)“ have taken on the challenge & are making all 3 local locations very successful. To be perfectly honest, your boy “Roundhouse Ron” has been to all 3 “Paddy Whacks Irish Sports Pubs” during this past year & it has always been a freakin maxed out blast.
Photo_5
When entering “Paddy Whacks”, you can’t help but notice the sleek contemporary Irish pub feel with classily framed Notre Dame football memorabilia on the walls, to the modern high top tables & let’s not forget the numerous Irish beers on tap. Seating my foodie posse & I was this very attractive personable young lady who goes by the name of “Jenn”, and we soon found out she was also our server for this evening. As we all settled in, a round of beverages was in order, with mine being a Jack Daniels & Diet Coke. With the quickness, “Jill” & “Chris” (bartenders) jumped on our order, dazzled us with knowledge & treated me to a few sweet libations. I personally had to thank “Kevin” (bar manager), cause “Paddy Whacks” has a very professional bartending staff.
Photo_2
Reviewing the exceptional dining menu choices, I noticed a very nice selection of appetizers, soups & salads to start me off with. If you like soup, you will simply love “Paddy Whacks” “Irish Potato Soup” which is a thick potato soup topped with bacon bites scallions & melted cheese. Another tantalizing soup selection is the “Maryland Crab Soup” made with their very own secret recipe that includes jumbo lump crabmeat. Things like these spectacular creamy creations carry a ton of flavor & really warms up my belly on a cold winter evening.
Photo_9
If you happen to be a chili lover, the folks here at “Paddy Whacks” are taking over with a bombelicious taste of the old west. The “Paddy Chili” is a famous blend of spices, red beans, onions, peppers & ground beef topped with melted cheddar cheese & chopped scallions. If this doesn’t get your taste buds rocking like Elvis in Memphis, then I don’t know what will. BAM, POW, BOOM
Now, as we all move onto the tasty appetizer selections, a few things were a definitely must have, like the “Philly Cheesesteak Rolls” packed a powerful punch with mini cheese steak stuffed in a crispy shell. The “Loaded Paddy Chips” are freshly cut potatoes fried to perfection, piled high & smothered in “Paddy Whacks” medium spicy chili with melted cheese. And one of my favorites have to be their “Almost Famous Wings” served in either a mild, medium, hot or spicy garlic seasoning. These wings are off da focking charts good and I will be placing them on my “Roundhouse Ron’s Top 10 Of Philadelphia’s Best Hot Wingz List”.
Photo_6
Just to give my brain a little break from all these “Paddy Whacks Irish Sports Pub” starters, before I move onto the main dishes, I decide to walk around & introduce myself to this kitchen staff of funky flavor town. “Chef Chris” (kitchen manager) along with “Chef Mark” (head chef) have this operating room on lock down with surgical precession as they are creating sum crazy creations.
The salads are all super stunning & outstanding, such as the “Paddywhack Salad” sliced chicken strips served over a blend of romaine & iceberg lettuce with cucumbers, tomatoes & onions, topped with bacon bites, Monterey Jack cheddar cheese with your choice of dressing. How can you freakin go wrong with these lettuce masterpieces like the “Cajun Chicken Salad” blackened Cajun chicken breast sliced over their pub salad with Monterey Jack & cheddar cheese with croutons, served with honey mustard dressing.
A few of my friendz rocked out the sandwich options, while I just moved right into the pub favorites. But, I did sample sum bites & must refer you to the “The Paddy Melt” with select chicken tenders, bacon & American cheese on grilled sourdough bread. Let’s not forget the “Yik-Yak Burger” a half-pound sirloin burger smothered in hot sauce with bleu cheese & lettuce on toasted rye. All of the sexy sandwiches & wonderful wraps are served with fresh-cut “Paddy Chips”.
The room light up with smells of aroma ecstasy as my pub favorite entrée was being severed. My “Chicken Parmesan” consist of freshly breaded chicken breast lightly fried, topped with marinara sauce & provolone cheese, served with a bed of linguini. This work of art tasted even better then it freakin smelled. When you go to “Paddy Whacks”, you must also try the “The Open Face Roasted Turkey” with oven roasted turkey served over toasted sourdough bread with their country mashed potatoes & topped with house made gravy. Or, an Irish specialty, the “Shepherd’s Pie” with lean ground beef sautéed with carrots, peas, onions & piped country mashed potatoes topped with their house made gravy. Believe me party people, you will not be disappointed in these dynamic tasteful culinary dishes.
Photo_9
“Paddy Whacks” also has a very sinful selection of desserts, as they are all designed to impress your sweet taste buds. Just think about, “Homemade Spice Cake” topped with peppermint whipped cream, candied walnuts & fresh berries, how about the “Kilkenny Chocolate Cake” a volcanic eruption of chocolate goodness served with creamy vanilla ice cream or the “Funnel Cake Fries” sweet & delicious, made to order & topped with fluffy confectioner’s sugar. Your killin me smallz, cause these are all so damn scrumptious.
At all 3 “Paddy Whacks Irish Sports Pub” locations, they have catering & banquet packages available that will be tailored maid to all your needs. Plenty of room for any party, celebration, receptions or gathering that you are hosting. To reserve this spacious area & inquire about the fantastic catering menu specials, please visit any location or call 215.464.7544.
I have done my research on this spectacular dining & drinking establishment named “Paddy Whacks”, found numerous outstanding weekly food & drink specials to pass on, but I seriously want you to hit up their website at www.PaddyWhacksPub.com for all these wild daily deals. This is a very special place with sum very unique Irish & American dishes that will definitely get your attention & satisfy your culinary appetite. “Paddy Whacks” has a great selection of Irish beers, holiday flavors & craft brews on tap as well as a warehouse packed of bottles to quench any thirsty land lover’s personality.
You must include this amazing contemporary Irish tavern on your Christmas wish list & I promise you will totally enjoy your dining experience. Do me a favor & don’t take my advice, go visit & experience “Paddy Whacks” for yourself, then you be the judge & write to me. But, when you go, make sure you tell them your boy “Roundhouse Ron” sent you ;-}

– How sweet, you brought incense.
– This explains your car.
– Maybe if we water it, it’ll grow.
– Why is God punishing me?
– At least this won’t take long.
– I never saw one like that before.
– But it still works, right?
– It looks so unused.
– Maybe it looks better in natural light.
– Why don’t we skip right to the cigarettes?

Schlitz

Vince walks into JC’s and asks Bowie the bartender for a case of beer, any kind except Schlitz. Bowie says, “What’s wrong with Schlitz, don’t you like it? Vince replies, “I hate that shit”. Last night I drank a whole case of Schlitz and blew chunks. The bartender says, “You drink a case of any beer you’re going to blow chunks”. “You don’t understand” said Vince, “Chunks is my dog!”

My Observation

Women are always say that giving birth to a child is more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts. There is obviously no way to directly prove that they are wrong, however a year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, “It would be nice to have  another child.”

You never hear a guy say, “It sure would  be nice to get kicked in the nuts again!”

Finally

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is here already, but I’m really excited to see winter whizzing by – I can’t wait till Spring! Once again I’d like to thank all of our volunteers who helped out with the Mayfair Holmesburg Thanksgiving Parade. We couldn’t have done it without you! I’d especially like to thank Saturn, Mike LeCompt, Nick from Stem, Chowder, Jamison, Romeo Delight, Michaels Glass, and as always the Glimmer Twins for performing in the parade. We’re STILL getting emails and phone calls from people telling us how awesome you guys were! They loved you guys – Thank You!!

Speaking of Mayfair, stop on up to the Mayfair Tree lighting and Christmas Village on Sunday December 2nd starting at 1:00 right at Frankford and Cottman. All kinds of crafts (including beer) as well as Santa! The tree will be lit at dusk by our Civic Association Presidents as well as our Parade Grand Marshals – Joe DeFelice (Mayfair), Mary Benussi (Tacony), and Rich Frizell (Holmesburg). Stop on up!

The Northeast Riders will be hosting their annual Toy Run on Sunday December 9th. Meet at Brians HD before noon with a new toy to be delivered to children with special needs. PROPS to the Riders for keeping this tradition going!
