Taylor Tote To Record Live Album At Stone Pony With David Ivory, Grammy Nominated Engineer"What does Taylor Tote and Lzzy Hale have in common? How about working with Grammy nominated and multi-platinum selling engineer and producer David Ivory!” exclaimed Kostas Lymperopoulos.  “I cannot be more excited to be her photographer and be part of the production team for the filming and recording of her live show at The Stone Pony on October 13th. Over the past 3 years I have watched Taylor and her band grow by leaps and bounds.  It will be an honor to be part of the team at Right Stuff Studios to film and photograph this breakout performance at the legendary Stone Pony as she takes this next step in her career.”

Taylor Tote and her band recognize the importance of this opportunity.  ”We are so honored to be joining the list of artists that he has developed, launched, and worked with,” said Tote.  "We are all thrilled for this next step in our music careers and David has already made us better musicians. We’re so excited to show everyone what we've been up to!”

The Taylor Tote Band includes Anthony Flora (Drums), Nick Ryan (Guitar/Background Vocals), Tom Briant (Guitar/Background Vocals), Aaron Manzo (Bass), and Taylor Tote (Lead Vocals). Everyone involved from the band to the venue is excited about the upcoming show.

"I knew Taylor was destined for big things from the first time I saw her in one of Jody Joseph student shows at The Stone Pony,” recalled Kyle Brendle. “And now she is coming full on with her live recording event!  Taylor is one of the brightest young talents I have ever come across; her smooth sultry vocals can soar right to the heavens.  Mesmerizing on stage, she is truly gifted and a force you’re going to be hearing plenty of in the future!”

David Ivory agrees. “Not only is she a gifted singer she is a strong talented songwriter.  Up is the only way this artist can go!” he added.

Ivory will also be recording the band on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Puck, an intimate live-music venue in Doylestown, PA.  Additional shows - including a performance at the Premier Mesa Music Festival in Arizona - will be announced shortly.

"Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for more information to come, you won't want to miss it!” added Taylor Tote.

Pat DiNizio: In His Own Words

Pat DiNizio: In His Own Words

We’ve lost many rockers in recent years, but Pat was one of us. When I first heard about his passing, I instantly recalled one special night at The Strand in Lakewood.  DiNizio was part of a Backstage Pass show (one that turns the theater into a listening room with the audience sitting on the stage with the artist) in which Pat played a few songs and shared stories about his life. He was very introspective that night and might have given us a special New Jersey version of his old Las Vegas show “Confessions of a Rock Star.”  These were stories about growing up in New Jersey, raising a daughter after a divorce, first successes with the band, and the moment he realized he wanted to play rock and roll for the rest of his life.  The show was broadcast live on our internet radio station and after searching through old hard drives, the recording was found.  What follows is one night with Pat DiNizio in his own words…
