News : Ray Vanderby & The Raynettes

goldfingers writes"

Press Release – Ray Vanderby and The Raynettes




Vanderby’s new bottom end!



After 3 years and 3 albums of playing the bass on his 1959 Hammond C3 and 2 Leslies, Ray Vanderby has gone back to his blues/rock roots and 70’s influences from Emerson Lake and Palmer, Uriah Heep, Pink Floyd, The Doors and King Crimson and is currently working up a batch of original songs for a 4th album to be released 2007. Ray won’t be playing bass on the organ as he has done in the past 3 albums.


The new 7- piece line up will include a 5 string Fender bass player.


Ray Vanderby – Hammond organ/lead vocals

Gina Woods (The Mojos) – Wurlitzer piano

Geoff Brown (Gwyn Ashton)– bass

Con Patogiannis – guitar

Peter Ivosevic (The Need) – drums

Monika Ciura – backup vocals

Michelle Yacoub – backup vocals


This Sydney export has now firmly based himself in Melbourne.

Listen to the new sound, it’s rocking hard as Vanderby’s filthy, angry organ playing, unique beat poet style vocals are something to be heard. His on stage antics, throwing around the 200 kilo Hammond when he gets carried away is definitely something to be seen. Check em out!

News : Synergy Blue

clutchcargo writes"

SYNERGY BLUE “ROCKS” Maldon. 16th July 2006
It was with great pleasure that the Maldon Blues Club hosted Synergy Blue for the second time this year.
Sam Salzone (Vocal and Blues Harp) is a singer and musician who fronts the band and is an artist with great style and feeling for the Blues. Chris Magira plays electrifying guitar that puts injects great energy into the group, along with the steady and driving beat of the drummer Grant Collie and the great backing of Delta Chris on the bass.
They all add up to a very powerful Blues band that had the capacity crowd on their feet and shouting for more.
Synergy Blue is a new and powerful force in the Victorian Blues Scene and thanks again to Sam and the boys for such a great Sunday afternoon.

News : Myspace and Public Revolution, GET PAID FOR YOUR MUSIC!!

founder writes"Independent artists have switched on to a winning system by joining both myspace for mass exposure and www.publicrevolution.com to earn bucks for every download. "Some of the bands have figured how to best work the system..." Stated publicrevolution.com founder Terry Church, "They grow their friends and fanbase on myspace, replace their free downloads with 30 sec previews, and direct them to www.publicrevolution.com to buy a full 192kbps CD quality version for just $0.99 (AUD)." Church stated. When asked if publicrevolution.com was a copy-cat site to myspace, Church replied "There is simply no comparison... publicrevolution.com is like myspace on steroids and we only focus on independent artists. We also have a streaming radio player, video interviews, indie ringtones... heaps more." Stated Church.

News : Buyer beware

strahany writes"saw this note from Venue music (SYDNEY) - thought the MELBAND community could benefit:

I AM GETTING WORRIED ABOUT THE AUCTION RIP OFFS

AUCTION SITES as you know I have written about auction

sites before but in the last few months the number
of FAKE guitars has been showing up is really alarming
They must think we in Australia are a lot of really stupid
people

GIBSON’S EPIPHONES FENDERS all the TOP guitar
brands. Its bad enough to get ripped off with a NO-NAME
brand but to get cheated and disappointed when you thought
you had purchased the real thing are actually criminal.
Now these guys who are selling this crap are usually in
CHINA and Hong Kong. Hiding behind e mail address
That they change often and the chance of getting any thing
likes a refund is ZERO

How can any body believe you can buy a Gibson or Fender
for starting price of .99 cents, But wait check the freight $400
usually what crap!!!!!

More importantly this is a blatant rip off and when the
lump of wood they call a guitar arrives there is nothing you
can do. You have done your dough, Also worse there are now Australian people buying the
rubbish and then reselling them on to the public on the
same auction site. Shame on them .Why don’t they go rob a
bank or something that takes more guts than stealing the
hard earned dollars from honest folk like this.


Be careful folks, no one with 1/2 a brain and 2 seconds
thought can believe you can buy a Gibson or Fender etc
for something like $3/400. It is B/S and you will be the loser
I saw an ad for a "BRAND NEW STANDARD
STRATOCASTER MADE IN MEXICO" "BUT the idiot put
PRODUCT OF CHINA in the ad
HOW DOES THAT WORK ? MADE IN MEXICO;
PRODUCT OF CHINA? DUH !!!!!!!!!!
STUPID YES BUT NOT AS STUPID AS THE POOR
DUMMY WHO BUYS ONE AND FINDS OUT ITS NOT REAL.

And cannot do anything about it
You have NO PROTECTION OR RIGHTS ON THE
AUCTION SITE AS THE SAY. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!
AND THEN WHEN I DID COMPLAIN TO THE AUCTION
SITE PEOPLE THAT THIS STUFF WAS FAKE ETC THERE
REPLY TO ME WAS
"WE DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE PRODUCTS
WE ARE NOT EXPERTS AND WE JUST HOST THE ADS"
IN OTHER WORDS, TOUGH LUCK DUMMY !
BE CAREFUL BUY FROM AN AUTHORIZED FENDER OR
GIBSON EPIPHONE ETC! STORE THAT YOU CAN GET
SERVICE AND THINGS FIXED IF THEY NEED IT AND KNOW
YOU ARE GETTING THE REAL THING. PLUS THE GUITAR
COMPANIES STAND BEHIND THEIR DEALERS
THE FINE BRAND NAME GUITARS GO TO A HUGE
AMOUNT OF TROUBLE TO BRING THE BEST TO THE
MARKET .THE HIGHEST QUALITY THEY CAN AND EVERY
DAY THERE REPUTATION RIDES ON THERE PRODUCTS.

DON’T LET THIS CLEARLY ILLEGAL FAKE B/S COPY
BUSINESS RUIN 100"S OF YEARS OF GOOD GUITAR
MAKING .YOU WILL BE REWARDED BUY INCREASING
VALUE AND MORE IMPORTANT THE PLEASURE OF
PLAYING A FINE INSTRUMENT.

TAKE CARE BUY CAREFULLY DON’T LOSE YOUR HARD
EARNED MONEY TO PEOPLE WHO DON’T CARE AND WILL
RIP YOU OFF IN A FLASH KNOWING THEY ARE
PROTECTED AND HIDDEN BEHIND THE AUCTION SITEWEB
AND A BUNCH OF B/S NAMES THAT CHANGE ALL THE
TIME ANY TIME YOU SEE AN AD FOR SOME THING THAT
MAY BE A RIP OFF FEEL FREE TO ASK US WE HAVE 25

YEARS OF UNBLEMISHED SERVICE AND 100'S OF
1000’S SATISFIED CUSTOMERS .WE WILL TELL YOU THE
TRUTH. IF IT’S REAL NO PROBLEM
IF ITS A RIP OFF WE WILL TELL YOU QUICK SMART
MUSICIANS AND MUSIC FIRST HAS BEEN OUR THING
FOR 25 YEARS"
