Calum Worthy and Super Girl Jadyn

The cast of Legends of Tomorrow has donated the first memorabilia signed by the cast in hopes to raise funding for Super Girl Jadyn, and other kids with life threatening diseases, to experience the slumber party of a life time.

Jadyn is 12 years old and has been living with a recurring brain tumor since the age of 5. She has undergone 6 surgeries, each time removing vital parts of her brain, and has exceeded the maximum amount of radiation- having been treated with more than 123 doses.

For Jadyn, cancer isn’t a death sentence and she’s not a victim. It’s life. Continue reading “CROSS Pens teams up with the cast of Legends of Tomorrow to Fundraise for Super Girl Jadyn”

Bummer in ‘The Summer of Love’

DAVID DUCHOVNY MOVED FROM 'CALIFORNICATION' TO 'AQUARIUS' TV SERIES
DAVID DUCHOVNY MOVED FROM ‘CALIFORNICATION’ TO ‘AQUARIUS’ TV SERIES

Aquarius on NBC

By Valerie Milano

Pasadena, CA (The Hollywood Times) 5/29/15 -NBC premiered its new crime thriller Aquarius Thursday night in the 09:00 p.m. timeslot. We got a double dose consisting of the first two episodes back to back. Next week it will return to the 09:00 spot as a one hour lead in to the man-munch drama Hannibal. Apparently, there is a large potential viewership for slick, pernicious grotesquery in primetime network television. Moreover, NBC seems to have no conscience about pandering to that demographic; a demographic that will be treated to child friendly Subaru ads as a respite between the rape and mayhem that constitute the dark heart of the show.

Publishing Deal Reached Leading To Comedy Album

THE RAGING IDIOTS SIGN RECORD DEAL WITH BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT
Photo L to R: Celia Froehlig, Greg McCarn, Producer Eddie, Bobby Bones, Doug Johnson, Gordon Kerr.
NASHVILLE, TN (May 28, 2015) – Black River Entertainment CEO Gordon Kerr and Vice President of Publishing Celia Froehlig announce the signing of The Raging Idiots, comprised of Bobby Bones and Producer Eddie, to Black River Entertainment today.   “Bobby Bones and Producer Eddie are unique comedic individuals,” said Kerr. “The light-hearted songs and comedy bits by the Raging Idiots not only entertain people but, through the charity aspects of their shows, actually help make a difference in people’s lives.  We look forward to sharing some laughs and changing some lives together.”
The relationship between the duo and Black River Entertainment began back in August of 2013. New to Nashville, The Raging Idiots recorded their charity album benefitting 30Abes, Charity Hilarity, in Black River Entertainment’s Ronnie’s Place Studio.
“It’s the best fit. Black River is such a creative place to be,” said Bobby. “We did our first charity album here and Black River gave us the studios for free. It was just, ‘Here use the studio, do good and also be funny.’ “We still want to do good and we still want to be funny. It started so great, so we figured let’s go along for the ride, together.”
Bobby and Eddie’s history dates back more than 10 years originating from their working together in television, on stage, and ultimately now radio. Throughout that time, Bobby and Eddie would collaborate on funny songs, often playing them on the air. In 2013, after the Bobby Bones Show moved to Nashville they were asked to perform at a charity event resulting in the first official public performance as The Raging Idiots. Soon after, The Raging Idiots decided to do one more one show for charity in Wichita, KS. When that show sold over 3,000 tickets it only increased their drive to continue to use humor and music to help communities. Since then, The Raging Idiots have performed nearly 40 charity shows and have raised more than $800,000 all benefitting local animal charities.
ABOUT BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT: Black River Entertainment is home to country music entertainers Craig Morgan, Kellie Pickler, John King, Kelsea Ballerini and comedy duo The Raging Idiots. Part of the Pegula Sports and Entertainment family (Including: NFL’s Buffalo Bills, NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, AHL’s The Rochester Americans, NLL’s Buffalo Bandits, HARBORCENTER, First Niagara Center, IMPACT Sports Performance), Black River Entertainment also owns and operates the premiere recording studios Sound Stage and Ronnie’s Place, as well as Black River Records, Passport Records, Black River Publishing and Thrive Management.

“We have a profound love of jazz and blues. So much so, that we take a song, any song, and put it through our Blue filter. Changing it, caressing it, re-exploring each note and letting it breathe new and fresh each time. Come listen and let yourself experience a new take, a different spin, and we’ll see you on the other side.”

Michelle Shocked

Michelle ShockedMichelle Shocked – traveller, troubadour, a “picker-poet,” as they say in Texas. As a young feminist, she left Texas to travel, Kerouac-style, and was caught up in Reagan-era grassroots politics. Her musical career was ignited by a bootleg recording made around a Kerrville Folk Festival campfire on a Sony Walkman. Released in England as ‘The Texas Campfire Tapes’ without Shocked’s authority, its success abroad enticed Mercury Records to offer the newcomer a recording contract. – “The most sophisticated hillbilly you’ll ever meet.”

Rivoah

Rivoah

Native to the Los Angeles area, RIVOAH has been recording and performing together since early 2012. Originally a family band consisting of sister-singers Analisa and Miranda Ynez, along with their brother, songwriter Scruphington- they recruited Drummer/Producer Peter Novoa to form the original nucleus of the band. Through mutual friends, they added Bassist Matty G to complete their current lineup. Known for energetic and infectious live performances, RIVOAH features two different styles of music: guitar driven, high-energy indie rock’n’roll paired with keyboard-fronted, melodic indie-dance-pop. Drawing influences from artists such as T.Rex, Chuck Berry, Madonna, James Brown, Moving Units, and Dangermouse among countless others, the band has been slowly building a following playing the local downtown LA bar scene. The band recently released the self-produced single, “Hot Time To Dance” accompanied by a music video. RIVOAH is hard at work, writing songs and rehearsing, with an ear to the ground and their eyes on tomorrow. They plan to release their new single, “Undress” in early 2015.
