New Record - The Old Part of Town

http://www.theoldpartoftown.com/ Hey Folks - just a reminder I gotta new record out with me mates in The Old Part of Town

The Old Part of Town

The band was formed after Matt and Sam collaborated on an EP in 2012, "Grayest Hits." Looking for a better performance vehicle for their catalog of originals, they recruited Davis Shingleton and Pat Sheridan to pitch in on mandolin, bass and vocals. After a year of performing and stretching out some arrangements, both Davis and Pat left to pursue other musical avenues, but not before recording some tracks for The Old Part of Town's first CD, released in the Fall of 2015. Matt and Sam's longtime musical pals Steve Raskin (drums) and Marc Wexler (mandolin) joined up with John Seay on bass early in 2015, solidifying the new TOPOT lineup, with guitarist Kurt Hammond joining the fray in the summer. - See more at: http://www.theoldpartoftown.com/town_residents/#sthash.3d1QWY5K.dpuf

New EP - Matt Douglass/Sam Nitzberg

Former bandmates with The Reactors, a staple in the 80s Baltimore music scene, Sam Nitzberg and Matt Douglass team up for a new EP. While the Reactors primarily played reggae, new wave and rock-and-roll, this CD finds them going back to their musical roots: acoustic folk, country blues, and well-crafted songwriting.

Matt and Sam take care of the instrumentation -- (guitar, slide guitar, mandolin, piano, harmonica, bass, percussion, vocals ) with some help on a couple of tracks by drummer (and former Reactor) Bill Beachler. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/samnitzberg

The Roots Café Songwriters Series

Sam Nitzberg and Matt Douglass perform their original songs with your singing host, Geoffrey Himes Friday, July 23, at 7 p.m. Common Ground 819 W 36th St. Baltimore, MD (410) 235-5533 Admission: $9 Sam Nitzberg Sam Nitzberg is best known as the founder/leader of the Reactors (aka the Charm City Reactors), a staple in the Baltimore area from 1980 to ’85. The Baltimore Sun declared that the Reactors had “followed the lead of new wave acts like the Clash, the Police and Joe Jackson, who have breathed new life into old rock conventions with the fresh air of reggae." After the Reactors disbanded, Sam spent time as lead singer with the Sway before leaving to form the Odds in order to provide another vehicle for his own songs. Since the Odds break-up in 1992, Sam has periodically played reunion performances with the original Reactors line up. This show at the Roots Cafe marks his first solo performance since his early days of busking in different parts of the States and Europe in the mid-70's. Matt Douglass Matt Douglass is a singer/songwriter/guitarist from White Hall, who has played a key role in such Maryland bands as Bitter Creek, the Reactors, the Edge, Red Tape, the Blind Dog Blues Band, the Sway and Big Cam & the Lifters. Douglass drew on all those experiences for his debut solo CD, “No Stone Unturned,” in 2002. The follow-up, 2008’s “Big Lucky,” featured 11 distinctive originals in an Americana vein that remind one of both Rodney Crowell and Tom Petty.
