Dandy Wellington is someone unforgettable whom I met on a music video shoot in New York City. We both appreciated (and sang) songs from the 1930s and 1940s, and it turns out Dandy is the consummate entertainer. Together with his band, he is well known for performing at cool clubs around The City, including Macao, Ella, Hotel Chantelle, and The Astor Room.
He is living a charmed life. I knew he was famous when I went to a library in Brooklyn, and paged through a magazine and there he was in the mag! He has got his act together– from the distinct look, to the swingin’ horn sound– you need to know Dandy Wellington and His Band! –Mark Weber Music Blog
Steve Balesteri has a new song available called “Drowning,” and it’s on iTunes. If you like Justin Timberlake, give this multi-talented music maker a listen– “Drowning” has a cool beat coupled with a sonic waterfall of vocals that’s both innovative and familiar– a song for the digital age we’re living in. –Mark Weber Music Blog
Mags, a young female artist from Canada, does a gorgeous cover of The Inkspots’ “I Don’t Want To Set The World On Fire.” Hear it here:
Mags is a piano player with a distinct voice; here she’s singing “My Piano” while playing the piano:
I “discovered” Mags at Kingdom Bound Christian music festival this past summer when she came up to my Pianos in Public Buffalo piano and showed off her singing skills. She met a guy at the piano, rapper J_Symph, and they got along instantly. That night, I invited them up to the stage to perform an impromptu performance for an ecstatic audience:

Sun God Seven makes music that’s instantly accessible to most people’s ears. Coming from a New Orleans pedigree, with a bit of The Doors influence, Sun God Seven’s musical gumbo is definitely worth sampling. Check Sun God Seven out on ReverbNation or visit the main site here. I particularly like “Hey Little Girl,” which makes me feel like I’m in Louisiana dancing the night away at an awesome party. –Mark Weber Music Blog
DJ MICMAC has a hot new song out entitled “Excellent, Dance” and its hypnotic beat is sure to get you dancing. If you like electronic dance music, I think you’ll enjoy this funny music video for DJ MICMAC’s pop music/dance music jam:

It has been a long time since I’ve seen an interesting music video. In the 1980s, there were plenty of them, since most people were new to videos and ready to experiment with all sorts of unusual visuals. Well, here it is 2014 and Alive Way has a really interesting music video for their song, “Starlight.” Watch it here:
It turns out that Alive Way comes from Lithuania. Formed in 2009 by Justinas Stanislovaitis, Alive Way has released several digital albums since, and performed before 30,000 people at “Roko Naktys” open air festival.
If you like the music of Peter Gabriel, Bryan Adams, Bon Jovi and Aerosmith, I think you’ll like the intriguing band Alive Way. Visit their main website here. Listen to their song “Racing The Street Lights” — I particularly like that one. –Mark Weber Music Blog
