OWL MOUNTAIN PRODUCTIONS - LIVE
Recording and filming in the studio is a blast, but we love taking our cameras out into the world as well. Owl Mountain Productions - LIVE is your online ticket to live music!
Multi-genre avant-garde pioneer Elliott Sharp’s "Momentum Anomaly” suite is less a musical composition in the traditional sense than a living, breathing, yet-evolving expression woven from the prolific NYC composer’s ongoing explorations technical and artistic in nature. Sinewy sitar-like passages weave in and out, like exotic eastern desert blues or electric mirages broadcast from a distant galaxy. Glittering harmonic slaps, clicks, and bursts fly like high-voltage bits of information down neural pathways, then ripple outward across the synaptic networks of the universe. Under Sharp’s joyful guidance, the open-minded are shown a remarkably meditative quality and underlying order to the surface chaos.
Hot summer nights call for some hot all-out rock 'n' roll, and we know just the number to dial.. TOMMY ODETTO opens for guitar legend ACE FREHLEY of KISS infamy at the historic McNear's Mystic Theatre in Petaluma, California. Odetto's genuine passion for rock shines through 110% in every performance. Watch the rising rocker set the house on fire with his guitar-melting talent and undeniably contagious enthusiasm!
"Tommy has the gift of obvious natural ability, combined with thought and tons of soul. He plays for you, not at you." – Michael Landau (James Taylor session guitarist)
Trout: “I learned this song from Mr. Albert Collins.” But “Cold Cold Feeling” goes further back. Relatively unsung music hero Jessie Mae Robinson composed this killer tune, and it was first recorded by T-Bone Walker in 1951. The song has since been covered numerous times through the decades. Mr. Trout combines his sizzling talents with the song’s solid bones for some truly “down and dirty blues” that brings down the house. Trout’s audience is absolutely smitten, for reasons quite clear..! (Recorded on the fly from stage left using in-camera audio)
JESSE COLIN YOUNG is back, LIVE! Step into the action as Jesse and his sizzling new band perform the favorite original "Ridgetop" at Mill Valley, California's Sweetwater Music Hall. This joyful June evening was full of music, nostalgia, as well as fresh talent and songwriting, but the dominant feeling in the room was that of Love. A sold-out show, Owl Mountain was blessed to be there to capture the night for you. Enjoy!
THE STRATOSPHERES are a sparkling marriage of Gypsy Jazz and Western Swing. Go on, have another, and whether your mood is to hop on the dance floor or just kick back and relax, The Stratospheres are sure to delight!
Owl Mountain Productions LIVE presents An Evening with BESO NEGRO at Phil Lesh's Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA.
The genre-defying music of BESO NEGRO takes the simmering mystery and romance of gypsy swing and ignites it with hard-driving rock, blues, and Latin flourishes. With infectiously danceable rhythms, charged vocals, inspired lyrics, and stunning solos, BESO NEGRO's pioneering hybrid sound conjures the charisma of the classic while bringing in the sizzle of the new.
Includes live clips of favorite BESO hits:
"Here I Go Again"
"Big Boss Man"
"C'est La Vie"
and finishing with a scorching preview of BESO's latest single, "Never Coming Down"
The Stratospheres play an eclectic mix of gypsy jazz and Western swing—if Bob Wills and Django Reinhardt had formed a band in some parallel musical universe, it might sound something like this. Musicians Hanna Mignano (violin), Steve Froberg (guitar), and Greg Dunn (bass) use their instrumental prowess and love of swing to marry two very similar musical genres into one, to create a unique listening (and dancing!) experience.
Owl Mountain Productions presents The Stratospheres' live performance of "Django's Castle" ("Manoir de Mes Reves", Composed by Django Reinhardt) at Corkscrew Wine Bar in Petaluma, California. 1/6/2017
