Peter Rivera. The name may may not come to you, but the voice will. Peter was the soulful singer of Rare Earth who were topping the charts for Motown Records in the 70s. On July 23rd, he brings the funk, rock, and soul to Rams Head On Stage.

We spoke with Peter and learned a bit about the past as well as his current tour. We learned how when Sly and the Family Stone presents an opportunity–you take it. And how Bob Seeger used to come check out their shows in the clubs of Detroit!

You can learn more about Peter..and check out his new CD, get his book, etc. on his website – Peter Rivera.

Tickets are still available for Peter’s 7:30pm show on July 23, 2017 at Rams Head On Stage.

Tim heads over to the Annapolis Maritime Museum to speak with Jessica Pachler. Now Jess spoke to us about living on the fringe of a high crime area in one of our first episodes, but this time, she changed hats and speaks about Eastport A Rockin’.

Eastport A Rockin’ is a single day low-key festival held around the Annapolis Maritime Museum. It will feature more than 35 bands on  4 stages right along the shore of Back Creek in Annapolis, Maryland.

But, Eastport A Rockin’ is not just about the music and beer—it is about community and giving back. Proceeds from the festival will go to help out local charities including The Annapolis Maritime Museum, the Annapolis Musicians Fund for Musicians (AMFM), the Eastport Volunteer Fire Department and Eastport Elementary School.

Tickets are still available online…and they are cheaper!  Come on out and have a great day!

CRABCAKE: Steve Kimock, Jerry Garcia’s favorite unknown guitar player coming to Rams Head On Stage June 1 (May 2017)

Whether with each of the living members of the Grateful Dead, his band Voodoo Dead, with Parliament/Funkadelic co-founder Bernie Worrell or his solo acoustic project, Steve Kimock has proven himself a versatile master of improvisation for over four decades, and in the process inspiring music fans with his transcendent guitar speak voiced through electric, acoustic, lap and pedal steel guitars. While one can say that his genre is rock, no one niche has ever confined him.

In this Crabcake, we talk about his beginnings, playing with his incredibly talented son, and his new album due out in the fall.  Oh and we touch on the time when Jerry Garcia said he was his favorite unknown (at the time) guitar player!

Be sure to listen to Steve’s latest single, Sagan, at the end of this Crabcake!

Tickets are still available for Steve’s 8pm show on June 1, 2017 at Rams Head On Stage.

And be sure to check out KIMOCK.COM for a sneak peek at his other single–Variation!

NICK MORRISON

Nick had the “cool mom” who let him drink beers with her. And then it was smoking a joint…popping some pills. Eventually Nick turned to heroin. Nick lived on the streets of Annapolis, sleeping in the Market House rest room if he was lucky enough to beat the last homeless man into the bathroom. With heroin, Nick says that 1 is too many and 1000 is not enough.

This is Nick’s story.

We spoke with Nick at a fundraiser for Samaritan House this morning at Chevys Fresh Mex in Annapolis, Maryland. Samaritan House provides beds and treatment for men in recovery. Nick is a success story for this 40+ year old organization that is seeing unprecedented strains as the nation tries to cope with an opioid epidemic!
