News: Dean Guitar - Ride For Dime charity run



DEAN GUITARS TO HOST "RIDE FOR DIME FLORIDA" MEMORIAL MOTORCYCLE RUN TO BENEFIT KIDS CHARITY OF TAMPA BAY.
LA GUNS with TRACII GUNS TO PERFORM LIVE!

Tampa - On Saturday, March 31, 2012, family, friends and fans will honor Darrell Lance Abbott, better known to most as "Dimebag" Darrell or simply "Dime" with a Motorcycle Run to benefit Kids Charity of Tampa Bay, a nonprofit organization serving abused, abandoned and neglected children from the Tampa Bay area.

"Dime," known for his work with the iconic metal band Pantera, was tragically taken from those who loved him on December 8, 2004. Across the country, memorial motorcycle rides have been organized each year in "Dime's" memory to raise awareness and funding for children's charities.

Tampa Bay will be the host of the inaugural "Ride for Dime - Florida". The memorial ride will begin at Dean Guitars headquarters with registration opening at 10:00 A.M. Registrants will be treated to entertainment and VIP tours of the Dean Guitars factory. The memorial Ride will end at Brandon Harley- Davidson where all guests will enjoy a concert featuring LA GUNS featuring guitar legend and Dean endorsed artist TRACII GUNS.

Ride for Dime President Rob Eichelberger said, "We are very excited about expanding our rides to Florida and at the same time helping abused children." "We are honored to have the Ride for Dime organization select our charity for their support and introducing our mission to more giving individuals and organizations like Dean Guitars," stated Wayne Witczak, Executive Director/CEO of Kids Charity of Tampa Bay, Inc.

"Dime was and will always be a huge part of the Dean Guitars family. Dean Guitars is honored to host the inaugural Ride for Dime Florida event. We care a great deal about the well-being of the kids in the Tampa area and to be able to help the Ride for Dime organization benefit the kids in our backyard so to speak, while paying tribute to Dime, is a great thing for everyone" said Dean Guitars CEO, Elliott "Dean" Rubinson.

When asked about the memorial rides held across the country and now in Florida, Dime's brother Vinnie Paul responded "The ride does my brother proud and I appreciate it taking place in his memory."

There is a $20 donation to participate in the memorial ride and/or attend the outdoor concert. Additionally, there will be a live/silent auction to raise additional funds for Kids Charity of Tampa Bay.

Robert Cray: UK tour dates


Robert Cray – the legendary guitarist and five time Grammy Award winning rock/R&B/soul and blues icon, today confirmed his new studio album will be released in September 2012. He’ll also undertake a European tour during June that will include three UK concerts.

The Blues Hall of Fame Inductee heads into the studio this month to commence recording the new album, released internationally by the Mascot Label Group’s Provogue Records. Cray performs at this year’s London Bluesfest at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (June 26), followed by concerts at Glasgow O2 ABC (June 28) and Birmingham Town Hall (June 29).

“I’m very proud to add the legendary Robert Cray to the Provogue roster,” says Label President Ed van Zijl. “Not only is Robert an artist of the highest calibre, he has worldwide name recognition that garners a tremendous amount of respect. We are honoured and dedicated to deliver a first-class campaign worthy of Robert's talent.”

Never content with interpreting his music the same way twice, Cray's daring innovations have placed him at the top of the business. His distinct guitar style that has become a signature blend of rhythm and blues, pop, rock, soul and traditional blues helping introduce old and new fans to a more contemporary blues sound.


Working in the studio with Cray will be the acclaimed rock producer Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Joe Bonamassa, The Black Crowes). “I’m really enthusiastic about collaborating with Kevin,” says Cray. “He’s done some amazing work in the past and I like the direction we’re taking for this album.”


“What an absolute honour to work with Robert Cray,” adds Shirley. “I've been a fan since Strong Persuader. He’s an extraordinary talent. It's really such a treat for me! My goal and challenge with this record, is to tap into the edgy vitality and spontaneity of a live Robert Cray performance, and wrap it up as a studio recording, with a big Blues bow!”

Sam Bell: Improvised Blues Jam

Sam Bell:
Here is a short clip of me jamming to a blues jam track took of my webcam, so no fancy editing or super quality images here I am afraid! I am borrowing a friends 1998 Carvin, with some nice twangy single coil pickups! I know I am not a great blues player by any means! , however I have been brought up around blues music, my parents always listened to old delta blues artists, my parents friends introduced me to players like BB King, Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters etc...I developed a fondness for playing this style when I was young, its not my main style, however, I thoroughly believe its always good to learn lots of styles that interest you, you never know when you might need it, and of course, its endless fun! I hope you enjoy this clip :)

Levi Clay: Gator Bite Brent Mason Tribute




This is just my little tribute to Brent Mason who has been a major influence on me over the last years. I really cant recommend his first solo record "Hot Wired" enough as I really feel it's one of the best instrumental albums out there.

Unfortunately its out of print and very hard to come by (I think I paid £35 for it on the old evil bay) but fortunately you can listen to it and find out plenty more about the man himself over on his site

http://www.brentmason.com/

Transcribing this record has been an ambition of mine for a long time now, and my buddy Jason Wilding of Wampler pedals (who make a signature Mason pedal) has spurred me to get on with it - so thanks Jason!
