New Show! The Volcano Chronicles

Monday, July 20th, 2020 by The Professor

This week we have something special for you – a new show hosted by Daniel Jones of the band 7th Order, featuring music from his 40 years of playing in bands, touring and recording. We’ll hear his road stories, meet some great musicians and have some amazing guest interviews. Stick with us every Wednesday from 7-8pm Eastern (that’s 1-2pm Hawaiian time) for new episodes and stories. You can also check out Daniel’s Quarantine Takeover show and the 7th Order band social media and website in between shows episodes.

Their first recording sessions took place in December 2001 but 7th Order’s roots are much deeper. The band has, at various times, been joined by veteran British guitarist Martin Pugh (formally of the 60’s British band, Steamhammer, as well as Armageddon with The Yardbirds vocalist Keith Relf, and “The Rod Stewart Album” with Ron Wood & Keith Emerson), drummer Tim Kelliher (of Randy Hansen’s Machine Gun), and legendary American rock guitarist Geoff Thorpe (of Vicious Rumors). Reminiscent of blues-rock bands like The Rolling Stones & The Yardbirds, with progressive undertones ala Led Zeppelin, there’s something in there for all of you. Their most recent release (June 2020) is a track titled “Voyager”, a tribute to the late American guitarist, Ronnie Montrose – and is a benefit for the incredible Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

Quarantine Takeover Show – 7th Order

Friday, July 3rd, 2020 by The Professor

This week’s Quarantine Takeover show comes from overseas again! This time from the magical land of Hawai’i! We welcome Daniel Jones of the band 7th Order recording his show on the side of Kilahuea in the town of Volcano. The show is a tribute to late guitarist Jesse Ed Davis, who played with the pantheon of great rockers in the 60s and 70s.

Their first recording sessions took place in December 2001 but 7th Order’s roots are much deeper. The band has, at various times, been joined by veteran British guitarist Martin Pugh (formally of the 60’s British band, Steamhammer, as well as Armageddon with The Yardbirds vocalist Keith Relf, and “The Rod Stewart Album” with Ron Wood & Keith Emerson), drummer Tim Kelliher (of Randy Hansen’s Machine Gun), and legendary American rock guitarist Geoff Thorpe (of Vicious Rumors).

This week we feature our first International Quarantine Takeover show! Local artists Surf Harp are currently globally divided with Jeff still in Japan but they made it work. With some magical technology, you can hear them all together although Jeff Koplovitz is in Japan, and Phil Bolton and Chris Sweeney are in Baltimore. Surf Harp is a great local band that also has some roots in WLOY (it’s possible some of them were DJs…) and a band that won Battle of the Bands under a slightly different lineup and sound.

What is Surf Harp? Art rock. Kraut pop. Smooth vibes. 5 piece Baltimore band with latest full length, “MR. BIG PICTURE”, out now on Friends Records. Currently operating in Baltimore and Osaka in preparation for LP3. Featured on Bandcamp Daily, Medium, Tiny Mix Tapes, etc.
