So, John Lodge from The Moody Blues is on his way to Annapolis

John Lodge, Rock and Roll HOF member, bassist, frontman, and lyricist for The Moody Blues is coming to Annapolis on March 3rd. No, not Maryland Hall, but Rams Head On Stage for one intimate show of all the Moodies best!

We caught up with John on the phone. I was in Annapolis…he was in Barbados (it’s good to be John Lodge) to hear his thoughts on the show, his career, how he kept his marriage and family so strong while living the rock and roll lifestyle!

A few minutes with Gaelic Storm

Today, we hopped on the phone with Ryan Lacey the drummer with the Celtic rock band Gaelic Storm who will be at the Rams Head On Stage on February 11th and 12th.

Did you know the band got a boost when they appeared in an Academy Award winning movie? About their grueling touring schedule? Or when that next album is coming out (spoiler–this summer).

Have a listen as we welcome one of the best live bands to see to Annapolis– Gaelic Storm!

Who you gonna call? Ray Parker Jr. that’s who!

If you asked a kid in 1984, “who you gonna call?” They’d say Ghostbusters!   If you asked a kid that same question today, you’r get the same answer!

GRAMMY winner and OSCAR nominated singer/songwriter/guitarist Ray Parker, Jr. is coming to the Rams Head On Stage for a single show on February 7th.

We chatted on the phone today about his incredible career–from getting a call from Stevie Wonder while forking as a draftsman at Ford in Detroit, to the success of Ghostbusters, to his latest album, to his thoughts on the death of Kobe Bryant.

Paula Poundstone…a comic legend returns (November 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20….we don’t have any kind of plan. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Paula Poundstone is back for her annual December visit to Rams Head on Stage on December 6 for two shows. Tim and Paula chat about climate change, Facebook fights, the tense political climate, feisty daughters, passive-aggressive Thanksgiving attacks, and, of course, cats. Paula also cranks out a hilarious weekly podcast, No One Listens to Paula Poundstone and is a frequent panel guest on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!

Thank you to Ann Alsina, principal at Covington-Alsina in Annapolis, for allowing Tim to take over your conference room for a couple of hours. And we apologize in advance, because he plans on making a habit out of it.
