Cincy Groove presents multi-act concert in Newport to help the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation

Scott Preston and his excellent local music web mag Cincy Groove are presenting a benefit concert at Southgate House Revival tonight to help keep a spotlight on the Cincinnati area’s outrageously rich musical history and influence. The 9 p.m. show will raise funds for the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation, a non-profit that has done great work drawing attention to Cincinnati’s impact on popular music by promoting and hosting numerous creative events to honor historical moments like Hank Williams’ Cincy recording sessions and the immeasurable impact of King Records. To become a member of the CUMHF's supporters group The Funky Drummer Society and read more about their mission to expose and celebrate Cincy's important place in music history, visit the Foundation's official website here or on Facebook here. Tickets for tonight's benefit show are $10 for those 21-and-up; it's $12 for those 18-20. Music will take place on all three of the recently opened venue's stages.

Cincy Brass Goes Metal, Then Unveils Debut Album (VIDEO)

Funky brass ensemble to debut release of mostly original compositions

Horny local ensemble The Cincy Brass hosts a free costume/Halloween party at MOTR Pub tonight. Sorry, I should say “The Heavy Metal Cincy Brass,” because the group, known for their brass renditions of Pop and Rock classics, will tackled a different realm of tuneage, performing their takes on songs by Black Sabbath, Tool, Rush, Led Zeppelin and many others. (Music starts around 10 p.m. with Skywalker featuring The Catalyst.) Though going Metal (or perhaps more accurately, hard 'n heavy Rock), the Brass won't stay that way long (even if some of the new arrangements do carry over into some later sets). On Nov. 18, the increasingly popular band will release its debut album, Ain't Nuttin Louder, which features 11 original tracks (and two covers). Dig this "video press release" for the release party at MOTR Pub that night:

Rose Funeral Opens “Gates”

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 26, 2011
Local melodic Death Metal group Rose Funeral have released its second long-player for esteemed label Metal Blade. Now a slimmed down trio (though no less ferocious), the band’s Gates of Punishment came out at the end of September, but Rose Funeral is just now making its way back from tour to host a hometown release party.

Cincinnati Entertainment Awards continues 14-year tradition of celebrating local music

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 16, 2010
The Cincinnati Entertainment Awards program is an attempt to remind local musicians that their contributions are greatly appreciated. It's also an attempt to bring together musicians (as well the non-musicians who work to support and nurture the scene) from across the local music spectrum to have an outrageously good time. Having a full bar in the room might be a factor, too, as will be in evidence Sunday night at the Madison Theater.
