Dreamboats – 10 Ear Flixs – CD
Share this:

The Dreamboats name was born on the day the stars and planets aligned and these musicians agreed to play and record together.
Alfredo Rivero was the 1st to come aboard. Then Jeremy Powell whose talent and creativity know no bounds, climbed aboard. Jeremy is one of the best on the planet and the “Dreamiest” of the Dreamboats. Joe “El Wappo” Bencomo who’s dedication to music is 2nd to none, his serious passion and “ownership” of our music was and is inspiring. Shankh “ Shankenstein” Lahiri taught us a new musical vocabulary and brought an undeniably unique spice to our creations. He’s my brother and co-conspirator in other musical projects (WAHH!) as well.
The name “Dreamboats” was originally somewhat tongue in cheek, poking fun at the bands “looks or lack of”…. in hindsight, it is really is a dream come true. Finally George “Dr. Lola” Harris, this record would not exist without him.

Standing In The Shadows Of Motown – 2 DVDs
Share this:

This documentary mixes performances, interviews and reenactments to celebrate the Funk Brothers, the 1960s soul hitmakers. As the musicians behind the Temptations, the Four Tops and others, the “brothers” were hugely successful, yet relatively anonymous compared to the famous singers they backed. They get their due here, as Richard “Pistol” Allen, Benny “Papa Zita” Benjamin and bandmates discuss their Detroit youth, studio sessions alongside Marvin Gaye and nonstop touring.
