On June 16, filming was done for a new music video for the song "Dead or Alive." The shoot was done in Syracuse, NY. Joining WWJ was Erik Strahl on drums & Rocky Graziano on bass. Pictures of the shoot can be seen on the CAROLINE BLUE Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/carolineblueofficial .
I was invited last month by Syracuse New Times Music Editor Jessica Novak (pictured w/ me above) for a photo session that the SNT was doing on musicians/bands in the CNY area. Not one to pass up an opportunity to pose (HA!) :) I agreed and had dozens of shots taken by photographer Mike Davis. I was told that I would have access to the ones that they weren't going to use and, if so, I will poste them up for all to see. As is, I just have 4 pics from this day-all of which can be seen on the CAROLINE BLUE Facebook Page. http://www.facebook.com/carolineblueofficial Thanks to Jessica & Mike for all this-hope the pics came out good!
Last night, CAROLINE BLUE was one of 20 other bands who performed at the 2011 Fingerlakes Metalfest in Clyde, NY. Joining me onstage this time we Mike Smith on drums and Johnny Sniper on bass. Pics can be seen on CB's FACEBOOK page. http://www.facebook.com/carolineblueofficial Video was taken of the show but, admittedly, the sound quality isn't very good. Might put up some clips on You Tube anyway-keep on the look out!
On 5/13 WWJ did a radio interview on “The Metallic Onslaught” (WEOS 89.7 Geneva) on 5/13 @ 9:30 PM to promote FLMF 2011 (5/21/11). They also played 4 CAROLINE BLUE songs including -Pain- -Out of My Life (I Want You)- -Our Love is Wasted- -Nothing Will Satisfy You-

CAROLINE BLUE has been video taping their shows since day 1-yet have been behind in the trend of posting videos from their shows online. That is starting to change. Here's some videos from the 10/02/2010 show at The Half Penny Pub in Syracuse, NY. Watch them on the CAROLINE BLUE You Tube Page http://www.youtube.com/user/CarolineBlueOfficial
Last Night CAROLINE BLUE played at The Fusion Room in N. Syracuse, NY along with Travester, Kill The Maestro and Zadoc...& The Nightmare. Pics as well as a show recap are on the CAROLINE BLUE Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/carolineblueofficial
-It's been awhile since I've done one of these show recaps. Hope I'm not getting rusty. :) Earlier in the month I was contacted by Donald Thatcher from Octave Match Records in Fl. A band they are representing, Traverser, was playing on 2/24 and they were asking if we could be one of the bands opening for them. After making sure I had people available I said sure. Within a week both Zadoc...& the Nightmare and Kill the Maestro were added to the bill. This night had Mark Amisano on drums and Azriel Mordecai on bass.
-Thursday night came and, overall, there were more people here than I expected. Not only was it a Thursday but also all the bands played their own material.
-Here is what we played this night
-NOTHING WILL SATISFY YOU -DEAD OR ALIVE -MINE, MINE, MINE -TOO LATE -I'VE SEEN THE LIGHT TONIGHT -WON'T BE HOME TONIGHT -FAR AWAY FROM HOME -STAY -PAIN -LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME
-I think we did a good job. Out of the 2 shows this particular lineup has played, I feel this was the better one. The only mistake, basically came from me. I forgot to change the tuning on my low E string between "Dead or Alive" and "Mine, Mine, Mine." I know it's not the most professional thing to do, but I stopped the song so I could tune that string back up. I even had that written on my set list to tune up-and I even have a tuner pedal. Oh well,,,,,,We might even have some video footage available from the show.
-The other 3 bands did great as well. We were all hoping the Traverser guys would miss the snow storm that approaching as they had to drive back to Florida that night. And no-I wasn't getting paid to help promo traverser's merch during CB's set-I wasn't kidding when I said they needed gas money to get home (HA!)....OK, maybe just a little....It was great to share the stage w/ all 3 bands and look forward to doing so again someday in the future. I want to say thanks to both Donald & Sam for making this show happen, thanks to Az & Mark for doing a great job (and for putting up w/ me-HA!), thanks to the other 3 bands and most of all, thanks to all the people who showed up this night. It's deeply appreciated. Keep rockin!
