IRISH JAM NIGHT BAND
“Little Wing / Toss The Feathers”
Greetings Jean Paul Bellanger,
Over the past couple years I’ve featured a special group of lovely lasses performing with me at Hog Penny Pub for Irish Jam Night. On June 16, we did our last show together and caught some of the magic on video. Unfortunately Bermuda is a dynamic place with ex-pats always coming & going (and having babies) so version 2.0 of the Irish Jam Night Band officially has had its last show together. Follow this link (or click the pic above) to catch the first couple of songs from the show – “Little Wing” by Jimi Hendrix and a traditional Irish jiggy tune called “Toss The Feathers” featuring Laura Springham on fiddle and Rachel Hylton Smith on pennywhistle.
This Friday is the big Bermuda John Lennon Tribute concert in Bermuda and in the next section below you will find details about the popular video for “All You Need Is Love” which I had a small part to play in.
Things are picking up steam towards the new single launch of “Pretty Garden” on Nov. 1. In addition to the new song will be the launch of a campaign to raise awareness about the 2013 record project and to get to best fans in the world – YOU involved intimately and interactively as part of the creation process. More details to come over the coming weeks – get excited!
BERMUDA JOHN LENNON TRIBUTE
“All You Need Is Love”
My buddy and musician compadre Tony Brannon is the producer for the currently ongoing Bermuda John Lennon Tribute project and this week is the big finale showcase concert here in Bermuda. I’ve included the music video
above that I was a part of, plus details from the DoubleFantasyBermuda website
:”Bermuda pays tribute to John Lennon’s creative genius during the first-ever John Lennon Double Fantasy Bermuda Tribute. In June 1980, John Lennon sailed to Bermuda on a yacht for an extended vacation. The experience sparked his musical genius and within just 6 weeks he wrote and completed 25 songs, breaking a 5-year writer’s block. The resulting comeback album was entitled Double Fantasy, named for a flower he had seen in the Bermuda Botanical Gardens.On Friday, September 21 Bermuda artists and artists from around the world will honour John Lennon with a tribute concert held at the Botanical Gardens Show Ring. The evening will also include the release of the “LENNON BERMUDA” CD and the launch of the book “LENNON BERMUDA – John Lennon’s Island Story”.”
