Keep a knockin’

Dinallo worked with Ducky Carlisle (Susan Tedeschi, Buddy Guy, Graham Parker) on Eddie Loves You So. “Ducky and I were floored when he started singing,” says Dinallo. “The sound of his voice coming back over the speakers gave us chills and made us howl with delight.” The new CD hits the streets on July 29 on Stax Records, distributed by the Concord Music Group.

New s-s-s-studio
Looking for a quick demo? Wanna get a full-length CD going? Or how about a rehearsal space? On Tuesday, July 15, Ocean State musicians Pete Vendettouli and Matt Wunsch offi-cially make all of these things available when they open PM Recording/Rehearsal Studios in Wakefield. The facility, located in the former home of Boo Recording Studio on Old Tower Hill Road, is available for multi-track digital recording and band rehearsals, all at affordable rates. The studio features a soundproof vocal/drum isolation room, a “lively” main room, and an isolated control room with digital multi-track recording equipment, effects, and mics. Vendettouli and Wunsch are multi-instrumentalists with decades of experience in live performance and music recording. Joining them as guitar instructor is Ed Vallee, best known for his work as a Naked with Steve Smith. Bass, drums, piano, and voice lessons will also be available; music instructors are welcome to give lessons on a space-available basis. Mobile recording and a satellite space located at Shady Lea Mill are also available. For more information contact: Pete or Matt

American locomotive works
Think what you will about the upscale mill situation known as American Automotive Works in Olneyville. I’m just here to report that there is a Thursday night concert series tak-ing place in the courtyard through August. It’s a pretty ambitious mix of performers. Tonight (7/10), it’ll be Zerui Depina. On 7/24 it’s Deer Tick, and later in August Watermelon Slim is the attraction. You can get a full schedule at the venue’s flashy website:
