chowder_promo_picChowder is a band with deep roots in NE Philadelphia.  They have been together now for 10 years and have a very large and dedicated fan base.  The band has a very unique style, both in playing covers and in writing their own originals.  Chowder is an extremely versatile band, always focusing on showing their fans a great time!
I spoke to my friend and Guitarist, Billy Luber and he told me, “Our music is really hard to classify as one type of genre. We mix in Blues, Rock, Jazz and Funk with lots of great leads and chord progressions.  It’s very different from anything else you may hear out there.”  The music that Chowder plays is very crisp and tight.  They work very hard during practice, making sure to get every single part down, exactly the way they want it.  Billy explained, “We really want our originals to shine and we work them over and over until they are perfect.  When we do play covers we don’t play the same standard songs many other cover bands tend to play.  Instead, we play songs that we like and just have fun jamming.  They come off so much better and our fans love it.”
If you go to see Chowder play live, you are going to feel energized!  Their sets are full of power and positive energy.  Everyone is up dancing and smiling and just having a good time.  This is a really great group of musicians who are extremely friendly and eager to please.   Even after 10 years of playing, Billy told me they all still get butterflies before a show.  He went on to say, “We just want to entertain.  We want to see smiles on everyone’s faces and we want everyone to leave feeling good.  It’s not about the money for us – we just want to give people live music they can truly enjoy.”
If you are ready to see a great band perform both covers and originals, you can catch them at the following venues:
November 4 – Curran’s Irish Inn, Bensalem, PA
November 19 – Redz Bar & Grill, NE Phila
December 16 – Flukes Restaurant & Pub, NE Phila
If you would like to learn more about the band and hear some of their songs, you can check them out on Facebook right now – just search “Chowder Band.”  Chowder is Jason Cowden -  Lead Vocals and Guitar; Chris Griffith – Drums; Gino Pini – Bass Guitar; and Billy Luber Guitar.

rob-zombieOOT put it’s thinking caps on and thought, what Rock Star really portrays Halloween the most?  Dee Snider? Alice Cooper? Corey Taylor? Many of the Glam bands? I went through my personal filing cabinet and Rob Zombie seemed to stick out the most!  I went after Rob for an interview to see what he’s been up to and apparently he’s not out on tour right now. But I did note off his website http://www.robzombie.com” that “Hellbilly Deluxe II” is out.  We did interview Rob with “Hellbilly Deluxe I” with that mega Hit “Dragula” which he told me was about the “Munster Car” and has sold 717,000 copies in the U.S. by 2010.  A Dozen years later, this new release II  features the catchy  single “Sick Bubblegum,” which sounds perhaps like it was written during the original sessions, “What?” a dark, distorted track that has Zombie’s signature sound, “Werewolf, Baby,” another sick ‘n demented rock ‘n roll anthem, and Zombie electric shocks like “Jesus Frankenstein” and the thunderous “Mars Needs Women.” Hellbilly Deluxe II can be found on Roadrunner Records.

The band consists of John 5, Piggy D, Ginger Fish and of course Rob Zombie. I followed Rob’s blog and see that they did very well in Germany this year. In Nurgbring they played to 85,000 fans!  I know in talking to many of the metal bands that Europe blows the states right out of the water when it comes to attendance as well as enthusiasm by a landslide!  I am wondering if Europe gives them more radio support? More Press? Well, after all, Think about it!  Philadelphia has what?  One preprogram rock radio station, and doubtful our listeners will call in and get Zombie played to often.

Now Zombie was actually born Robert Bartleh Cummings;on January 12, 1965, in Haverhill, Massachusetts. He was the first of two sons. His younger brother Michael David Cummings was born in 1968 and is better known as “Spider One” the frontman to an alternative metal band many of you know called “Powerman 5000.” On May 23, 2010 Zombie’s new comic book series about a fictitious Horror Host “Whatever Happened To Baron Von Shock?“  The first print sold out in less than a week!  Rob is an American musician, film director, Screenwriter and film producer. He founded the band “White Zombie” and has been nominated three times as a solo artist for the “Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance.” Zombie has also established a career as a film director, creating the movies “House of a 1000 Corpses, The Devils Rejects,” the 2007 remake of “Halloween” and the “Haunted World of the El Superbeasto.”  I heard his next film will be the “The Lords Of Salem” which is scheduled for release in theaters sometime in 2012!  One might note that Rob Zombie is all into merchandising too!  If you check out his website you can order, videos, T-shirts, hats, Rob Zombie dolls, Zombie lunchboxes, posters, and even a bag of Rob Zombie organic coffee!

On Halloween day of 2002, Zombie married longtime girlfriend “Sheri Moon.” A striking girl whom I met on a shared ride down an elevator with them one year. Rob frequently features her in all of his horror films. They currently live in Woodbury, Connecticut and LA He really is a pretty down to earth guy for such an incredible talent!  I would have to say he is very unique!
