“The Bill Henry Band, formed in 2016, is one of Pittsburgh’s preeminent R&B acts. BHB regularly sells out performances, with a loyal fan base that eagerly attends their regular outings at Rivers Casino and Savoy, and follows the band to any other venues. BHB’s stylings effortlessly segway through R&B, soul, funk and hip hop. The band’s performances are well-rehearsed and of high quality -perfect for your standalone or opening act requirements.”

The Bill Henry Band is an R&B/Soul/Hip Hop/Funk band from Pittsburgh that never disappoints live. Known to get the audience dancing with their smooth and soulful grooves, witness that magic at our second annual and first of two night Deutschtown Goes Downtown event in Market Square taking place tonight (Friday, June 7) at 8:30pm hosted by yours truly. I want to thank Bill (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?
Can’t remember, but probably Ja Rule Pain is Love or Nelly Country Grammar… in the 90s before I was buying my own CD’s, you would know a kid in class that had a CD burner and would make everyone mixes. Most of which had explicit lyrics that I wouldn’t have been allowed  to buy anyway

Your last album bought?
Gregory Porter Take Me To The Alley.

Favorite album of all time?
D’Angelo Voodoo or Anthony Hamilton Comin From Where I’m From.

First concert attended?
Guy Lombardo Big Band tribute at Kiski Area High School. My grandma would take us on Sundays when I was in elementary school.

Last concert?
Snarky Puppy at the Roxian Theatre.

Favorite concert ever?
Eric Clapton 2008 in Cuyahoga Falls. It was the first concert my dad and I went to together.

Least favorite concert?
Not sure I have one, the live music lover in me always enjoys seeing how different people perform on stage and their stage presence so there’s always something to study.

Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
Love that there’s more music venues starting to pop up.

Thanks, Bill. Looking forward to tonight to meet you and watch you perform!

“What makes Dr. Hood so unique is her eclectic interests which have helped her to expand her network and become involved in multiple arts and music scenes that are typically not associated with hip hop.”

Dr. HollyHood is a Pittsburgh based MC / rapper / event producer who is self-described as the ‘Mom of Pittsburgh Hip-Hop’ due to her longevity participating and promoting the scene. Through her vast experience, she is able to pass on her knowledge to up and coming artists as an immeasurable resource for those lucky enough to accept it.  Follow her socials and you will soon discover that she is not afraid of being refreshingly blunt and honest when it comes to bullshit in the hip hop scene. She also performs out and will be doing so at our second annual and first of two night Deutschtown Goes Downtown event in Market Square taking place tonight (Friday, June 7) at 6:00pm hosted by yours truly. I want to thank Holly (Dr. Hood to you…) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?
With my own money… not sure… but I was definitely taking advantage of those CD clubs (buy one for 99 cents and get 897,234,873 free)… I really want to say, though, the first gangsta rap tape I had was The Chronic (Dr. Dre)… my mom bought it for a party I wanted to have.

Your last album bought?
King of the Sun 2 (by Livefromthecity…Pittsburgh artist).

Favorite album of all time?
Untouchable by Scarface, also, Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City by Kendrick Lamar, also Trilogy by The Weeknd.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?
Hmmm… not sure… but Queen by Nicki Minaj was pretttttty sad.

First concert attended?
Jay-Z/DMX in 1999.

Last concert?
Tory Lanez in 2018 (this is the last concert I went to where I was NOT the opening act lol).

Favorite concert ever?
Sade in 2011 and Tech N9ne in 2017.

Least favorite concert?
Lauryn Hill – Only because she was late and did all of the songs in quadruple time. I did get to eat a piece of the chocolate cake that was made for her, though.

Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
My favorite experiences/thoughts about Pittsburgh are all the fun times I had at Shadow Lounge. That place really saved my life.

Thanks, Holly. I have to say how much I appreciate your energy when it comes to helping out the youngins’ in Pittsburgh. Us old heads have a lot to offer advice-wise and your positivity does not go unnoticed.

The Deutschtown Music Festival starts this week! Every day on the blog I am featuring a band from Pittsburgh who I discovered through the submission process and are performing this weekend.

iNCO FIdO is a ska-punk rock and roll band from Pittsburgh who totally blew me away when I saw them perform at the Millvale Music Festival in May. Comparisons to The Commonheart are a tad too easy but with a stage full of musicians, a horn section and energetic frontman singing his heart out, you will share the sentiment the moment you witness their amazingly, energetic live show. Do yourself the favor and catch them at the 6th Annual Deutschtown Music Festival this Saturday, July 14 at 4pm on the Skyline Stage in Allegheny Commons Park by the Sue Murray Pool. For a preview, the band will be performing a couple songs on 102.5 WDVE this morning (7/11) at 9:15am. I want to thank Chuck Veri (Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?

The first album I ever bought for myself was Dookie by Green Day, this album began the journey down a punk rock rabbit hole that I still haven’t found the bottom of 24 years later.

Your last album bought?

I just recently bought Pacifisticuffs by Diablo Swing Orchestra. I love this band, a little bit of swing, a little bit of opera, and a whole lot of heavy metal, I’ve never heard anything like this band.

Favorite album of all time?

This question required quite a bit of thought, but I’ve decided to go with Gemstones by Adam Green. Imagine a collection of songs in which Neil Diamond wrote all the music and Hunter S. Thompson wrote all the lyrics. This album has a profound impact on my song writing, got me thinking in layers, and is a great example of duality in song writing as the music is very beautiful, but lyrically very ugly and dark.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?

I’ve been trying to come up with an answer for this, and I’m drawing a blank. I’ve had some albums that I was initially disappointed in, but upon further listening I’ve either found the good in them, or realized that the problem was myself.

First concert attended?

The Beach Boys at Star Lake Amphitheater. I don’t remember the exact date, but it was the summer of 1991.

Last concert?

Punk in Drublic Festival at Highmark Stadium. This was an awesome day, my buddy DanK was able to score us some staff passes so we got to watch Bad Religion play their Suffer album front to back from the private balcony… I may have teared up a bit.

Favorite concert ever?

It was Against Me! April 6th 2004 at the Ottobar in Baltimore MD. I was all alone in a strange city and the energy in that room was absolutely electric. There was just something in the air that night, with that band and that crowd in that room that I have never felt before or since.

Least favorite concert?

John Michael Montgomery, and it wasn’t even that he didn’t play well, I’m just not a fan of pop-country music.

Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?

Pittsburgh is my home. I was born and raised here, but throughout my 20’s and early 30’s I traveled extensively. I’ve lived in a number of places, some short term and some long term, but wherever I’ve gone or wherever I’ve tried to settle, no place has ever felt like home. I always end up back in Pittsburgh and if I have my way I’ll never live anywhere else. I love the people, the skyline, the music, the art, the messed up roads, the seemingly arbitrary way that the city is laid out, the “you can’t get there from here”, I love the parks, and the neighborhoods. I love that there are parts of this city where you can go from a completely urbanized setting to a green space that’ll make you forget the city exists in just a few steps. I could go on, but I think I’ve made my point.

Thanks, Chuck. Your Punk in Drublic story is the best of what going to a show is all about. Scoring some VIP seats. The band playing the whole album. It seems to me that fleeting experiences like that are what make up going to shows all worthwhile and stick with you forever.

“alt/indie/rock/pop two piece band trying our best. thanks for listening! :)”

The Deutschtown Music Festival starts this week! Every day on the blog I am featuring a band from Pittsburgh who I discovered through the submission process and are performing this weekend.

Raven Clifton is an indie pop artist from Pittsburgh who is just emerging on the local scene with the help of her fantastic debut Hive Mind. Definitely catch her at the HughShows Stage (Middle and Foreland) this Saturday, July 14 at 1pm at the 6th Annual Deutschtown Music Festival. I want to thank Raven (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?

I’m not 100% sure about this. Might have been the soundtrack to the Rugrats in Paris movie. Or the very first S Club 7 album. Clearly I was a very cool kid.

Your last album bought?

Favorite album of all time?

I have two, I really can’t decide between them; My Chemical Romance’s The Black Parade and La Dispute’s Wildlife. They both have my angsty, emo little heart.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?

The only album I specifically remember being disappointed by was The Killer’s Sam’s Town. But then I listened to it a few times on a cross country road trip and fell in love with it a little bit? So I guess I end up liking anything that I hear enough times.

First concert attended?

It might have been Mindless Self Indulgence? Very weird first concert experience. Lots of people in costumes. I did not understand what was going on.

Favorite concert ever?
Green Day. I saw them for the first time after 21st Century Breakdown came out. They played for like 2+ hours straight and were high energy the whole time, it was amazing.
Least favorite concert?

I once went with my mom to see Def Leppard. Oof. That was not for me. Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?

I’m just slowly starting to get into the music scene here and I’m really excited to become a part of it. I think it’s awesome how many dedicated, passionate people there are here who are (and have been) building up the local music scene with events and festivals and all this DIY jazz. It’s a great place to be.

Thanks, Raven. I have to tell you that I really do love your music. I cannot wait to see you perform this Saturday! And by the way, Def Leppard isn’t TOO bad…

“ATL&S was founded on August 29th 2014 by members Al Snyder & Michael Lewandowski. The death of Michael’s mom sparked an interesting song recording duo that flourished into the sound that we have today. Prior to Beverly Lewandowski passing away, Michael spent many days in the studio with Al recording his own songs and attempting to make it on his own. Upon her death, Michael asked Al to sing the song ‘Goodbye for Now’ and at that moment realized something amazing was created. From there they continued to record song after song and believed in what they were creating. It was so different and unique than anything produced prior. Since then, the band has consistently been focused on recording new albums and attempting newer
sounds.”

The Deutschtown Music Festival starts this week! Every day on the blog I am featuring a band from Pittsburgh who I discovered through the submission process and are performing this weekend

ATL&S is a genre bending band from Pittsburgh who’s debut self-titled album from last year has just spawned the band’s first music video for the track “As Beautiful As You.” I will bet my mortgage that you will hear the song live as the band play the 6th Annual Deutschtown Music Festival this upcoming Saturday (7/14) at 11pm at the Pittsburgh Winery Pop Up Stage at the former James Street Tavern Ballroom Upstairs. I want to thank Michael Lewandowski (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?

This is probably going to blow your mind, however I never purchased an album until I was 25 years old. I started playing the guitar at 19 and had no real interest in music until then. After I started jamming, I became a huge Led Zeppelin fan which sparked my true love for music. As for the question, I purchased my friend Brian Foye’s album who sings on one of our original songs. He is a singer / songwriter out of Boston and has created many original tunes – the album title is Rough Drafts.

Your last album bought?

To go directly along with my first answer, that was the first and last!

Favorite album of all time?

I am a huge Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Guns & Roses, and Tom Petty fan. I would say (if this isn’t cheating) that my favorite all time album would be Tom Petty’s Greatest Hits. I’ve listened to that album easily 500 times throughout my life. It never gets old, the music is timeless.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?

I will definitely not be able to answer this, if I don’t like the first song I will immediately turn it off. Honestly, I listen to the same artists / songs pretty much daily. I like to listen to music that moves me emotionally, grows me personally, and makes my life better. The music I relate to most is the older generations. I think they spent more time on the art side than the money side. I don’t listen to music that doesn’t improve me personally.

First concert attended?

Bon Jovi a long, long time ago. It was the first time I’ve ever smoked anythingtoo – and yes it was only a cigar. However it was a fun experience. I went with my brother D, friend Dan, and a few other friends. It was my first time at the Pavilion, the weather was flawless, people were happy, it was a great scene.

Last concert?

Honestly I can’t remember. I think the last was a girl who dances around and plays a violin. The past few years I’ve been working a full time job, started a lighting company called Pittsburgh SociaLights, got my MBA at Pitt, recorded two albums / a bunch of music (and other) videos, and planned a wedding and gotmarried a month ago. I didn’t really have time to go out and explore other artists. Hoping that changes soon!

Favorite concert ever?

Tom Petty a few years back. Once again the perfect day out at the Pavilion, we had a bus take 30 of us and had an absolute blast. Definitely a concert to remember forever.

Least favorite concert?

My friend brought me to some rap concert at Rex Theater. I can’t even describe to you what I witnessed. It was the worst 45 minutes of my life – every song was terrible. Some guy that talks about tip toeing in his Jordan’s? Anyways, won’t be seeing that again.

Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. I’ve spent time traveling the world, and there is nothing like it. It’s home to me. For me, life really comes down to friends and family and they are all right here.

Thanks, Michael. Seriously? 25 years old? The first time you bought an album? AND that was the last time you bought one? Yes… MIND – BLOWN!

This year marks the sixth year straight that music, food, and families take over the historic Deutschtown section of the Northside of Pittsburgh for two days of free fun.

A few new things this year are:

I am thrilled to announce we are renaming the former Main Stage at Middle and Foreland streets to be now referred to as the HughShows Stage! It has such a nice ring to it, doesn’t? The HughShows Stage will also run on Friday evening for the first time, as well as Saturday.

We are also adding the scenic Skyline Stage in Allegheny Commons Park by the Elks Lodge to our festival on Saturday.

We have also added some other new stages for this year (Nova Place, Threadbare Cider & Mead, and a few cool POP-Up Stages around Deutschtown) totaling over 50 stages over the course of two days.

As previously mentioned here, we are also resurrecting the former James St. Tavern building in cooperation with our friends from the Pittsburgh Winery to host bands on all three levels Friday night and Saturday all day and night!

Here is the entire band schedule for both Friday, July 13 and Saturday, July 14, 2018 with venue locations and set times.

We here at the Deutschtown Music Festival have been working our tails off to make our upcoming 6th year our best ever.

We will have more bands, more stages, and more activities for you to enjoy this year as we take over the Northside of Pittsburgh on Friday evening, July 13th and all day and night Saturday, July 14th, 2018. We wanted to let everyone know a special aspect that we have kept mum until now.

We are taking over all three floors of the 422 building, belovedly known as James Street, which was closed down late last year. There are going to be a total of 50 bands on every level both days of the festival. Our buddy Tim Gaber of Pittsburgh Winery will be on hand selling his delicious wine and other adult beverages as we are so excited to be welcoming back that space in style.

Who will be playing there and all the other venues this year? I will be revealing the entire band schedule
this Thursday and Friday. Stay tuned…

If you would like to be considered to play this year at the Deutschtown Music Festival, please submit here by Saturday, March 17th.

The two day, all free festival takes place on Pittsburgh’s historic Northside on Friday and Saturday, July 13 & 14, 2018.
