Happy Holidays, beeeeaaatches!!!

Snow miser heat miser

This is how *real* rock stars do the holidays, folks.

Take whatever holiday wine drinking advice you read with a serious heaping of salt grains (yes, even mine), and then drink whatever you want… just make sure it’s good stuff (to you), okay?

Hug your SO/loved ones/dogs/cats/gerbils/nutria. Be kind. Be generous. Be merry.

Oh, and embedded below, there’s a little ditty from the Steve Liberace Band (partially pictured above) to get you into the holiday spirit.

Cheers!

Worlds Collide In New Wine-Related Music Vid (And YOU Can Win Some Free Tunes!)

Vinted on December 26, 2011 binned in commentary, giveaways, wine tasting

The first thing most people over the age of twenty-five think of when you ask them to name a song about wine is probably UB40’s Red Red Wine, which is ironic because they’re all totally drinking beer in the vid for that tune.

In a similarly ironic case of music-meets-wine creative worlds colliding, the band I’ve been playing in for… well… for a long time (some of you will remember us as the dudes who recorded a rock version of the Snow Miser/Heat Miser song, and a reggae/dub take on the Oompa Loompa Theme – we’re kinda into the holidays), has just released a video (available for your viewing pleasure below, after the jump) for a tune titled Wine Kissing Days.

The ironic part: the song is about the social pleasures of sharing wine (a near-constant theme among these virtual pages), was filmed in part at local PA producer Chaddsford Winery (which has been profiled here) BUT… apart from playing bass on the tune I had nothing whatsoever to do with it. More on that in a minute or two. Also, since we know that the music played during wine tasting impacts the qualities that people recall about the wine, if I were a tasting room manager I’d buy a few copies (you know, like, 10,000 or so) of this song. Just sayin’.

Anyway, you can hit up iTunes to grab the tune (and the album from which it comes, “Tricky, Seabass & the Hun – and damn, it sure makes me feel old to even talk about the conceit of an album at this point), but I’m giving away a copy of the new Steve Liberace Band CD (another near-ancient conceit!) to three lucky randomly-selected commenters!

1WineDude TV Episode 35: Pouch Will Survive (Why Cabernet Doesn’t Really Work In Alternative Packaging)

Vinted on June 28, 2011 binned in 1WineDude TV, wine review

In this episode of 1WineDude TV, I share the results of a “field test” of Clif Family Winery’s “The Climber” pouch wine from the 20th annual Summer Solstice Music festival outside of Philly, a charity event for which my band has performed (clips included in the vid) for… well… quite a few of those twenty years! I then wax dime-store-philosophic about why Cabernet Sauvignon in a pouch/box/bag is probably a bad idea (attention box/bag/pouch producers: can we get some Barbera or Gamay in that packaging, please?).

Mentioned in this episode:

Cheers!

2 for 1(WineDude) Music Giveaway!

Vinted on July 22, 2010 binned in giveaways

I had a hankerin’ for a giveaway, and for something fun and off-beat (I know, right?  me being offbeat?  what-what-WHAT?!??) and so for this edition of giveaway action we’re doubling up on the prizes and YOU can win just by leaving a comment!

I was recently (that’s “recently” as in my version of “recently” – which is measured in months – and not recently in normal human terms) turned onto a band called side FX, who feature the interesting vocals of wine fan Kim Cameron, and who (according to their publicist) have built their career by performing at wine tasting events.

Now, as a member of a hard-working (that’s “hard working” in the “It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock’n’roll” AC/DC sense, not in the 9-to-5 sense) rock band myself who has played in just about every scenario that you can imagine (including wine tasting events, which are usually a great gig), I was intrigued and the publicist sent over some review copies of side FX’s album Turning Point [ for laughably funny “rawk stah” photos of me pretending to be a musician, check out the inset pics below ].

Fans of well-crafted, pop-infused hooks and musicianship will dig Turning Point, I think – the more astute listeners will pick out a variety of influences from `80s Go-Go’s pop to country and UK club dance beats.

Anyway, today we’re giving away a copy of Turning Point and throwing in a copy of my band’s pop-influenced album Cloud & Water.  Here’s how it works:

YOU leave a comment describing the worst band that you ever saw live while you were drinking (because if a band stinks when you’re buzzing, then they probably really suck). In one week, using a super-secret random process, I will select one commenter as the WINNER.

My personal selection of the worst band that I ever saw while drinking (that’s while I was drinking, though I’ve no proof that the band in question wasn’t drinking)  is going to surprise you…
