By Rob Nagy
Pop recording artists Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs each came to prominence via different paths while enjoying varied degrees of success. Sweet, while born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, relocated to Athens, Georgia in the early 80’s and soon became a part of the burgeoning Athens music scene where artists like the B-52’s and REM were embarking on their now legendary careers. Sweet worked with REM front man Michael Stipe in a band called “The Community Trolls” while pulling double duty with Stipe’s sister Lynda in the “Oh-OK”. By 1985 Sweet had caught the attention of record Giant Columbia Records – landing a solo contract and releasing the album “Inside” to rave reviews but less than dazzling record sales. Departing Columbia Records, Sweet signed with A&M where, again, he had critical acclaim but very little response from the record buying public. It wasn’t until 1991’s Zoo Entertainment release of the album “Girlfriend” that Sweet got the long overdue radio airplay and record sales he had longed for. The title track “Girlfriend” reached the top ten, spawning the heavily rotated video on MTV. Along with success comes an end for too many artists; Sweet was no exception. He had achieved the notoriety and airplay that was most deserved, but fans – having little patience – moved on to the next new craze. Sweet released a handful of albums throughout the remainder of the decade and into the millennium but was unable to revisit his brief moment in the spotlight. In 2002 he put together the super group “The Thorns” releasing one album before breaking up. Along with writing and recording Sweet did some producing, co-writing and work in TV and film. Sweet and Hoffs were members of the band “Ming Tea” along with Mike Myers in the classic film “Austin Powers”.
Susanna Hoffs enjoyed far more media attention and notoriety as a member of the 80’s girl group “The Bangles”. Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Hoffs was exposed to celebrity as the daughter of film director Tamar Simon Hoffs. Signing with Columbia Records in 1984, the Bangles breakthrough came two years later with the release of the album “Different Light”, which yielded the smash hits “Walk Like An Egyptian” and “Manic Monday”. As the most visible member of the Bangles, Hoffs garnered much of the attention. She co-wrote songs for other artists, most notably the Go-Go’s Belinda Carlisle, and saw Rickenbacker unveil a Susanna Hoffs’ model guitar. With the 80’s rapidly coming to a close, the Bangles released the album “Everything” featuring their biggest single “Eternal Flame”, which Hoffs co-wrote and sang. Displaying her diverse talents, Hoffs co-starred in the film “The Allnighter” starring John Cusack, which was directed by her mother. By 1990, the Bangles disbanded eventually reuniting nearly a decade later, at Hoffs urging, to release the “Doll Revolution” album in 2003. Hoffs released a couple of solo efforts to a moderate response, but like Sweet, the glory days had come and gone. In 1993 Hoffs married film director Jay Roach (Austin Powers and Meet The Parents). It was during the making of “Austin Powers” that Sweet and Hoffs established a great friendship that continues to this day. In 2006, billing themselves as “Sid and Susie”, they recorded and released “Under The Covers” Volume 1, a collection of their interpretations of the 60’s greatest songs, which included “Monday, Monday”, The Kids Are Alright” and “Cinnamon Girl”. Following the release of a long overdue solo effort, 2008’s “Sunshine Lies”, Sweet and Hoffs returned to the studio to record their current release “Under The Covers” Volume II, offering a collection of classic songs from the seventies, which included “You’re So Vain”, “Hello It’s Me” and “Maggie May”.
On November 15, 2009 Sweet and Hoffs performed a two-hour set to a surprising capacity audience at the Sellersville Theatre in Sellersville, PA. The concert was in two parts with Sweet and Hoffs doing their 60’s cover songs the first half and the 70’s portion the second half. The duo was joined by two additional acoustic guitarists – adding a depth and richness to the overall sound. In between selections they told a variety of stories relating to their respective careers. The show itself seemed flat and a little on the unrehearsed side. Too much time was spent talking, and there seemed to be confusion at times over what song to play next. While Hoffs still has a very strong singing voice, her microphone was clearly put at a volume that was often overbearing and took away from the overall show. Still, it was fun to hear so many of the classic songs that have stood the test of time no matter who is performing them. Standouts included “You’re So Vain”, “Cinnamon Girl”, “Hello It’s Me”, “All The Young Dudes” and “Go All The Way”. There is talk of Sweet and Hoffs releasing an 80’s tribute but to date nothing has been confirmed.

Among hundreds of Philadelphia and New Jersey based cover bands, Goodman Fiske (GMF) is one of the most impressive groups of musicians to set foot on stage. GMF is the ultimate cover band, providing live musical bliss as well as captivating stage presence. Founded by Gene Goodman and Ryan Fiske in 2005 GMF has garnered major regional attention catapulting them into local rock and roll stardom. GMF consists of Goodman, lead guitarist and backup vocalist, Fiske, lead vocalist and guitarist, Ian Lightcap, bassist and John Kresge, drummer.
Together the band sounds phenomenal and the instrumentals alone are so cohesive, they’re awe-inspiring. When GMF played the opening rift to AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck”, at Mad River in Manayunk on November 19, crowds of men and women started cheering as they rushed the stage. Individually, each member of GMF is a musical prodigy. Front man, Fiske possesses an insane vocal range, going from Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” to The Killers “All These Things That I’ve Done” with out missing a beat. His vocal prowess combined with his interaction with the crowd makes him a favorite at local venues. Goodman is a kind of guitar genius, known for shredding on his Zakk Wylde guitar. A self taught musician, Goodman was born to play the guitar. At any given show, you can find all eyes on Goodman as he rocks guitar solos one-handed behind his back, criss-crossed and with his teeth. Goodman is easily the best local guitarist I’ve ever seen. Lightcap is a ball of energy, simply owning the bass. His playing evokes emotion, while his head bobbing and bass pumping sets the vivacious tone for every song. Heads turn when they hear Lightcap thumping the bass like a true rock and roll star. Finally, Kresge on drums, also self-taught has the intensity, rhythm and hitting style comparable to some of rocks greatest drummers. Kresge, the heartthrob of Goodman Fiske, dominates the drums, going all out for each performance. The kid can seriously jam.
GMF, part of Shore Bets Management, is acclaimed for their outstanding cover performances as well as their masterfully written original music. GMF covers a wide range of artists including, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Black Crowes, Kings of Leon and dozens more. GMF appeared again Philadelphia’s CBS studios to perform live in support of the Eagles kick-off festivities. Check GMF perform one of their original songs at CBS 3 at www.myspace.com/GoodmanFiskeband.
In just three years GMF has made enormous strides in the Philadelphia, New Jersey music scene scoring them a sponsorship with Bud Light. GMF is quickly rising up in the music industry, earning them much deserved respect as both cover musicians as well as the next up-and-coming original band. GMF hopes to release an original album in 2010. Be sure to check out GMF at Dazzy O’s in Winslow, N.J. on New Years Eve. For more information on GMF and their upcoming shows please visit www.GoodmanFiske.com.

Finnigan’s Wake is so much more than just another corner bar in Philadelphia. It is located at the corner of 3rd & Spring Garden Streets, in the heart beat of this awesome city. Finnigan’s Wake became so popular, so fast that it is hard to remember a time when it was not an integral part of the City of Brotherly Love. Local Irish bands are always playing in the Quiet Man’s Pub (basement area), which is chock full of invaluable antique mementoes from great movies. The 1st floor has a great meeting room area, plus a focking fabulous room for local rock/top 40 cover bands!! I have spent many drunken azz nights here on the 1st floor trying to pick up a few hot Philly & Jersey gurlz!! Let’s work our way to the 2nd floor, where we have the Civil War theme dedicated to both the Irish 69th Brigade and Abraham Lincoln, and is home to the famed “Lincoln Doors.” After the President was assassinated, his body was transported to Philadelphia to lie in state at Independence Hall. That night his body was kept in a Northern Liberties funeral parlor and the doors from that establishment has been made a part of the second floor, the “Lincoln Level”. The 3rd floor catering hall is named after Benjamin Franklin, which is graced with a beautiful view of the bridge that bears his name. Some claim that Finnigan’s is haunted and those items, particularly keys, disappear routinely. It may be Old Abe; it may be the late Mr. Finnigan himself?
Jimmy (night manager) always has things in total control with a fine staff of awesome personalities!! I have never seen such a bunch of staff members that actually luv their jobs and it show as they all mingle with us rowdy customers. On this visit, I had to kick up my beverage of choice to a Jack Daniels & Coke with a side shot of Jameson. I think the spirit of old man Finnigan kinda got to me as I was feeling very good after just a few cocktails. If you are ever looking for a spot to just chill with your friends over sum drinks and good food or just out with your partners in crime, Finnigan’s Wake is my pick of the year!! This focking place ROCKS!!
I seriously have no damn idea where to start!! Finnigan’s Wake always has something going on!! On Monday’s come see Mike Anthony & Friend’s Acoustic Night starts @ 9pm. Tuesday’s are College Night with Beer Pong, DJ Kitty & $2 Miller Lites. Wednesday’s go back with the Hy Litt Show Live Broadcast from 5pm to 10pm, then it is Karaoke with $2 Yuengling Lagers. Thursday’s are for us sports fans as they had the Phanatic Live 97.5 Broadcast with Mike Missanelli, Larry Bowa, Jayson Stark & Ricky Bottalico. Friday’s are open for all the hottest local Philly bands like The Benderz, The Loop & Loudmouth. Saturday’s go to the next level with a wild azz party night as the bands roll in with such talent as The Rockets, Split Decision, Secret Service & Please, Please Me. Sunday’s again are for us crazy azz sports phanatics with all the NFL games along with DJ Jimmy in the evening hours. Finnigan’s Wake has an awesome catering service with numerous affordable wedding catering specials and office party packages, just call and ask for the beautiful Kathy.
The food at Finnigan’s is focking insane people!! There are, of course, the standard Irish dishes like a Guinness Beef Stew to die for, Shepherd’s Pie, Fish & Chips, like your mom used to make!! And if you like potatoes, (what self-respecting Irishman does not?) you gotta try the sweet potato fries with that marvelous sweet & sour dipping sauce. There is always potato soup, wonderful salads exist for those watching their weight. They also have standard “pub fare” for those who want a Phillly Cheese steak or a home-made crab cake.
Mark December 6th, 2009 (Sunday) from 2pm to 9pm on your focking calendars NOW!! Irish Winterfest 2009 is going to hit Finnigan’s Wake with Paddy’s Well, Bare Knuckle Boxers & Broken Shillelaghs all Live in concert!! The doors open @ 1pm with Irish Dancers, Irish Food & Irish Vendors all this shit for just $10!! WTF, are they serious?? AWESOME, I am so focking there!!
The Big Man Roundhouse Ron (ME), always focking luvs to kick back and spend a few hours @ Finnigan’s Wake Irish Pub!! You must visit Finnigan’s at 3rd & Spring Garden Streets or please check them out online at www.Finnigans.com.

We all have different taste in music, that’s a given. I mean lets face it; there are a lot of different types of music from the incredible to the completely bizarre. What one person may think is talent may make another person’s ears bleed. I have a pretty eclectic collection of music at home and I enjoy just about anything that isn’t Top 40, RAP or something my 12 year old niece would listen to. One genre I never really seemed to get very excited about however is Blues. Don’t get me wrong, I do like it, but some of the local Blues bands I have had the chance to see sounded great for the first 3 or 4 songs and then everything just started to sound the same. I would often wonder when the last song ended and the next one began. Well, that was the case until I was introduced to Slim Bob and the New Electrics!
I had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Slim Bob who is a very well-known Blues artist from the Philly area. The original version of the band, Slim Bob and the Electrics, actually formed in the 80s and were together nearly a decade. Then after several years of a successful career playing on his own and with many other Blues musicians including Billy Branch, Magic Slim and the Teardrops, Kenny Neal, Byron King and the King Snakes, Fat Head, Brothers from Another and Philadelphia’s own Toni Washington as well as many others, Slim Bob reformed the band with new players in 2008, calling them the NEW Electrics. This is not your typical Blues, and as Slim Bob explained “what we play is called House Rockin’ Blues, also known as Chicago-style Jump Blues.” Being the Blues novice that I am, I asked Slim Bob what that was exactly and he explained that “it’s the original Blues which came from the South, but when musicians brought the sound North to the Chicago area they added a more amplified and electric sound to it, making the tunes upbeat or “jumpy.” This is when Chicago-style Jump Blues was born.
Slim Bob and the New Electrics have now been together over a year and have been playing many diverse venues, offering a great time for anyone who likes to dance. In addition to the old favorites by artists like Muddy Waters, James Cotton and BB King, the band also has several original tunes they mix in. These guys are really diverse in what they play, too. They tend to lean towards the Rock-n-Roll side of Blues and will perform songs by Amos Lee, Randy California and even Steppenwolf. If you go see Slim Bob and the New Electrics, expect a very professional show that is energetic, interactive and tells many stories, paying homage to the original artists who wrote the songs. The band recently opened up for Mike LeCompt at Puck in Doylestown, and they have some upcoming shows including 11/28 at The Glacier in Saylorsburg PA, 12/12 at the Andalusia Stadium in Bensalem and 12/26 at The Hollywood Tavern in Rockledge, PA.
You can go to their website www.slimbob.com to listen to their music and also see their full schedule and how to get in touch with the band. If you go see them take my advice – bring your dancing shoes honey, because these guys will rock the house!
