What a morning of music we had on the Friday 10/15/21 edition of BumbleBee Brunch! It's a HUGE weekend here in the Boston area beginning with Saturday night's musical extravaganza at Magic Room in Norwood. Smitt E. Smitty & The Feztones and Gene Dante & The Future Starlets are set to light-up the night in a supernova of fabulousness! I am your special guest host for the evening and am looking forward to seeing you at the show! Tickets are still available... CLICK HERE for more info!
Saturday night's show at Magic Room is also the record release party for Gene Dante's new album "DL/UX," which dropped on Friday via H1 Massive. In the age of the single, Gene defiantly zagged and created a 15-track double-LP (if you purchase it on vinyl) that is a start-to-finish delight to listen to. We featured a new track from the album, "Vampire Days" on the Friday show. To kick things up one more level we also unleashed a track from Smitt E. Smitty that's SO new, it hasn't even been released yet. "The Ballad Of Roger" is on the setlist for the Saturday night show!
The aforementioned Gene Dante and Smitty tunes were the newest songs of the day, while Siouxsie & The Banshees 1981 Halloween Haunting "Spellbound" was the oldest.
Friday's program featured some great new tracks from D-Tension, The Accidentals, Sunflower Bean, and Band Of Horses, as well as our first ever artist from Luxembourg with duo Francis Of Delirium.
Sunday 10/17 is a BIG night for music in the Northeast , as the 2021 New England Music Awards show happens at Mixx 360 in Malden. There are a TON of Boston-area artists we play regularly here on BumbleBee Radio that are nominated for awards this year and we served-up a piping-hot buffet of them on the Friday brunch. Best of luck to all the nominees. I'm looking forward to seeing you at the awards show on Sunday! Tickets available HERE!
