Local Music In Philly Is Making A Comeback

Philadelphia experienced a Renaissance of music in the early 1980s when I was a teenager. So cool to be able to see band such as The Hooters, Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers and The A's. So it was quite a shock to hear that Robert Hazard had died recently at age 59. What would happen to great local music?

I found out last night when Cathy and I went to see Liz Longley at the Burlap and Bean Coffeehouse.

Liz lets me use her music on my own website and I've gotten too many positive comments on it to count. Her first CD was awesome and she's only getting better. But wait, there's more! I just realized my own dental hygenist's band, Lotus Hill, put out a CD so I picked it up. It, too, is incredible.

I was hooked from the first track. Peg Carroll's voice is strong and sweet at the same time and the tunes are real and robust. No wimpy, unproduced garage band stuff here! The CD is a bargain at $10 so go get it from their site. Or stop into the office for a teeth cleaning by Peggy before this band takes off! :o)
