I started my Tuesday’s music with a smile on my face. My favourite giggler Laralette Lane” Laralette is a german solo acoustic guitar artist streaming live from the Netherlands…. She plays a variety of covers from John Denver, Billy Joel, Chris Isaac, The Cure, Green Day, R.E.M … just to name a few…. In RL she has been playing guitar and singing for over 20 years now and started performing in SL in October 2008″ was playing at Urban Degnerate & Basement an only live and unplugged venue. Not only does Lara have the most infectious giggle she has a beauitful voice that she accompanies with an acoustic guitar. Catch Lara every Friday at The Dolphin Club 5am slt.
Moving on from Lara we headed to Palazzo Live Music Venue to hear VincentSantino “Vinnie was in a 9 piece show band back in the early 70’s and 80’s.. My rl band, was able to re-create the sounds of famous RL bands from that time period. I have a collection of reel to reel tapes and I have transferred into sl so all can hear… I will not be using voice to speak but will type and respond in local. I also have very recently recorded a show of my acoustic stuff. which i am performing now in sl… I am disabled with a muscle disease and can very rarely play live. Even though this afternoon was tracks it still show cased Vinnie’s talent. Luckily I did get to hear him live in a dual stream for one song this evening at Kameleonz Pub with Bea Meleth. “Bea Meleth has always had a passion for singing and is inspired by music of all genres. With Favorites that include Adele, Delta Goodrem, Sara McLachlan and Norah Jones, you are sure to find something that will make you want to sing along. Bea’s very sweet and unique tone is unlike any you’ll hear in sl. You’re sure to be captivated by her wonderful personality and gift of singing.” Great dual stream you two. You can catch a Vinnie show at The Alhambra Castle 22/03 3pm slt and Bea at Club P420/03 6pm slt.
Another new one for me today Johnbob aka SirJohn Charlesworth “was raised on a farm on Sand mountain in Alabama.His Pappy was a whiskey drinkin,guitar pickin,country sangin,southern Baptist preacher man.His Mama was a Chotaw Indian. Johnbob growd up with farmin and music everyday,and sometimes went to school for some book learin.He does songs by:Roger Alan Wade,John Prine,Dalton Roberts,Jerry Jeff Walker,Ray Stevens and many more.” One funny guy with a great stage presence and song list that will make you howl. I couldnt find an upcoming show for Johnbob but I do hope to hear him again.
