22nd, 2013 - Jim McGorman and Steve Fekete at Berklee College of Music
- September 23rd!
Jim and Steve are currently on tour with
rising star Cassadee Pope and while in Boston, MA tomorrow, will be
conducting a seminar at their alma mater, Berklee College of
Music. If you are in the Boston area, below is Jim's tweet inviting you
to attend the seminar.
1st 2013 - Tour w/ Cassadee Pope
and Steve Fekete just embarked on a tour with Cassadee
She is opening for Rascal Flatts
and Band Perry;
apparently big shots in country music. The first concert was last night
at the renovated
Jones Beach Theatre. Here are some videos, shot by Lary
Hirshon - a guy with a powerful camera and very steady hand. You
can't see Jim nor Fekete, but you can hear Jim singing and Fekete's
solo guitar. Worth your while.
All These Tears
Again, at least one of us is not crazy about Jim's dabbling in country
music, but... this isn't really
country music plus, what's most important, this girl CAN sing and write
some good songs.
10th 2013 - Radio Tour w/ Cassadee Pope
|Jim, together with Steve Fekete is
currently on the road, accompanying Cassadee
the winner of The
Voice, Season 3. Cassadee is visiting country radio stations across
the US, performing a few songs in each and promoting her upcoming debut
album. Jim and Fekete are playing guitars and singing backing vocals.
Yes, it's country music but it's pop-country, and she is a songwriter
and a great singer, just like her idol, Avril Lavigne.
tell you the truth, apart from Keith Urban, neither of us listens to
any country, but this is not half-bad!

2013 - Avril Lavigne Live Showcase in The Viper Room
Avril and the Best Damn Band gave a little live showcase performance in
The Viper Room, LA today. They performed 6 songs; two of them from the
new, yet to be named album: Here's
To Never Growing Up and 17.
Rumour has it that the video of
the showcase will be posted, but until then here are a couple of
half-decent ones from YouTube. At least the sound is OK.
Here's To Never Growing Up
Jim seemed to pretty extited to perform:
2013 - The Best Damn Band is back rehearsing!
2013 - Richie
Sambora in Purple Tongue Studio:
Jim on all the social media:
night I got to hang with one of my childhood idols. Richie Sambora was
in my studio Purple Tongue Studio working on some new music! In my line
of work, I have been fortunate to meet many of the people I grew up
listening to. People who's posters I had on my wall. People who created
music that defined/help shape my junior high and high school identity.
Many times, the experience is a massive let down. This was not the
case. Richie was one of the coolest and most down to earth guys I have
met in this business. He smiles at you, looks you in the eye - and when
you are having a conversation, it is real. He also has an amazing sense
of humor - the ultimate jokester.
kid growing up in New Jersey in the 80's. Bon Jovi was a massive part
of my musical life. I can't tell you how great it is that those
memories were not tarnished by a less than favorable experience. Here's
to you Richie - for being such a class act! #childhooddreamcometrue
