ANNOUNCING CRESCENT CYMBALS
Iâ€™m very excited to announce the launch of my
new cymbal company Crescent Cymbals. For
some time I have been a partner with Michael
Vosbein, Jeff Hamilton and Bill Norman in
a company called Cymbal Masters. For the
past 8 years weâ€™ve been distributing and
marketing Bosphorus Cymbals. That relationship
has come to and end and we are starting our
own brand with Crescent Cymbals. The cymbals
are hand made in Istanbul, Turkey and are
as good or better than what we were offering
with Bosphorus. Crescent Cymbals will be
available at select dealers starting early
September. Please spread the word and stay
tuned for more details!

GARAGE A TROIS 'ALWAYS BE HAPPY, BUT STAY EVIL'
MOORE, SKERIK, MIKE DILLON & MARCO BENEVENTO After the success of the quartetâ€™s 2009 release, Power Patriot (also the bandâ€™s debut with Benevento replacing original member Charlie Hunter), Garage A Trois headed to Studio In The Country in Bogalusa, LA (where masterpieces by The Neville Brothers, Stevie Wonder and The Wild Magnolias have been cut) to record with revered engineer/producer Randall Dunn (Cave Singers, Black Mountain, Sun City Girls). As has become the bandâ€™s primary focus in its current incarnation, a laser sharp focus was applied to capturing Garage A Troisâ€™ sinewy, fourth-dimensional, polychromatic instrumental songwriting. The resulting album, Always Be Happy, But Stay Evil, will only fuel the fire for a growing legion of fans amassing around the most dangerous instrumental band on the scene today. . More Info
DOWNLOAD: JONATHAN FREILICH BAND 'ELECTRIC EGGPLANT'
MOORE, SKERIK, MIKE DILLON & TODD SICKAFOOSE
Most notably known for his guitar work in the New Orleans
Klezmer All-Stars, Jonathan Freilich has released his
first solo album! Enlisting the help of old Klezmer All-Stars
band-mate Stanton Moore, the record was
recorded and mixed by Mike Napolitano at Galactic studios
in November 2006. "This recording came about when my
old friend, Stanton Moore, suggested that I do a recording
of my compositions with him and some of the people that
he had formed associations with since our time playing
together in The New Orleans Klezmer All-Stars," says
Freilich. More Info
GALACTIC: THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT Live In New Orleans The album was recorded during an electrifying sold-out show at legendary New Orleansâ€™ nightclub Tipitinas which has hosted countless luminaries such as the Neville Bros, the Meters, Dr. John and Professor Longhair. The venue has, of late, become something of a regular home court for GALACTIC, with the band playing multiple sold out shows at the historic club throughout the year. Like Ya-Ka-May, The Other Side of Midnight: Live in New Orleans features a host of guest appearances from the bawdy hip-shaking gender bending â€śbounceâ€ť star Big Freedia to local legends Cyril Neville and Trombone Shorty, the whole thing capturing GALACTICâ€™s deep musical relationship with their storied hometown. Only in a city like New Orleans could a night this raucous, sweaty and wild also be so incredibly profound. More Info
