MUSIC FROM THE ANCIENT TO THE FUTURE'
Welcome to a special edition of The Soul-Patrol Newsletter
Rio Soul that STANK FUNK band from LA is coming east this month to do gigs in Pittsburgh and in NYC as a part of the EAST-WEST-SOUL-SUMMIT tour. This is the first of several emails that you will be getting from me personally and from Soul-Patrol regarding this east coast swing.
(so just delete them if you aren't interested)
On second thought, if you aren't interested, forward the damn email to at least 20 people that you know. At least one of them will want to come out and support one of OUR artists who will be taking OUR music straight ahead into the next generation!!!!!!!!!
However it is my hope that you will find the time to not only read these emails, but also to ATTEND THE SHOW either in NYC or Pittsburgh.
Ticket prices are DIRT CHEAP!!!!!!!!!
Soul-Patrol.Net radio will also be featuring the NEW music of Rio Soul for your listening pleasure.
In case you haven't heard them before, click below and get a taste from their first CD...
RIOSOUL: RHYTHMS OF THE SOUL- New CD from the LA Based Soul/Funk band. Think of a combination of Slave, Brand New Heavies, Sade with a splash of New Birth
RIOSOUL: RHYTHMS OF THE SOUL
I will be co-hosting the show in NYC and I will also do my best to make the show in Pittsburgh as well.

Who said that there was no FUNK in Pittsburgh?
On SUNDAY 11/23/03 - RIOSOUL will be in PITTSBURGH to do an INTERVIEW with our own FUNKOVERLORD KEVIN AMOS on WRCT in the morning, from 6am - 12 noon.
Kevin will also be the emcee later that night...

The venue is called Lounge 7101, located on 7101 Frankstown Rd, on the corner of Lang.

Lounge 7101 was formally called Too Sweet and was one of Charlie Earland's favorite places to play here in the 90's. The club holds about 150 and will be a good spot to play on Sunday; it's also one of my old stomping grounds during the time I lived in Pittsburgh.

Look for ad's for the show on WAMO (Pittsburgh's historic Black Owned Radio station!) and in the New Pittsburgh Courier Newspaper (America's Legacy Black Newspaper). Stay tuned for more info and of course, let us know if you are coming...
Some people are so caught up in 'categories', that they simply must put an artist into a single category. For example click here and listen to an EXCLUSIVE 'sneak preview' of samples from four NEW songs by Soul-Patrol's very own soul/funk/jazz/rock/nu soul/black rock/whateva self contained band called RIO SOUL.
I have always questioned why this type of categorization is required?
Duke Ellington said that there are only two kinds of music...
(good and bad)
What 'category' would YOU put this music in?
What do you think about these 4 cuts from Rio Soul's New CD called 'THE CURE'?
(#1 'Cool Baby', #2 Feel It', #3'Free', #4'Breathe')
I simply can't decide which one I like best...
Do YOU like this music?
Click Here and Listen To Samples From Rio Soul's Upcoming CD called 'THE CURE'
Which one of the 4 songs do YOU like the best?
(#1 'Cool Baby', #2 Feel It', #3'Free', #4'Breathe')
Drop me a quick email and let me know what cha think?
btw....if you like what cha heard in this special sneak preview, stay tuned for an upcoming special broadcast of the complete CD!!!!

"PRESENTS AN EVENING WITH GWEN
For over three decades, Gwen
McCrae has won worldwide acclaim for her sensuous,
classy brand of modern soul music. Gwen was a
pioneering figure in Miami's growth as a center of
R&B music in the 70's at the influential TK
Records and became an international star in 1975
with the chart-topping, million-selling success of
the Grammy-nominated "Rockin' Chair". Her
self-titled 1981 Atlantic album graced the upper
reaches of national R&B and pop charts and
yielded the smash single "Funky Sensation". Most
importantly, it reintroduced this gifted vocalist to
the public at large with a set of tunes which
spanned ballads as well as upbeat funk. McCrae has
performed with a who's who of funk, soul, r&b
and pop artists is currently touring with The Miami
All-Stars which includes Betty Wright, Lattimore,
and Timmy Thomas, along with new soul sensation,
