Musician Funny of the Week

 

Captaion Maniac's Weekly Podcast - Better Than Anything On The Radio

Broadcasting live from the girls washroom at QE High!

This week on the Captain Maniac Show on Mixcloud! We’ve already done shows where the songs were popularized by the likes of Elvis, the Beatles or the Rolling Stones, but Monday we present the best of the rest… original versions of songs that became more famous by other artists! The hit version of the song you remember may well have been performed previously by the songwriter (case in point, All Along the Watchtower or Black Magic Woman), and it’s possible that well-known songs had an earlier incarnation that later became acclaimed by established bands and singers. But as the saying goes, “it’s the *second* mouse that gets the cheese,” so here are early examples of songs we all know which became much more popular the second time around!

THE LION SONS - of THE KINGSTON TRIO

Friday, May 12th | Doors 7pm | Music 8pm
Saturday, May 13th | Doors 7pm | Music 8pm

“Where Have All the Flowers Gone”, “Tom Dooley”, “Greenback Dollar”, “They Call the Wind Maria”, “Seasons in the Sun”, “It Was a Very Good Year”

The Kingston Trio is described as "the most envied, the most imitated, and the most successful singing group, folk or otherwise, in all show business" and "the undisputed kings of the folk singing rage by every yardstick”. They rose to international popularity, fueled by unprecedented record sales, and helped to alter the direction of popular music in the U.S.

The Lion Sons are the closest thing to the original Kingston Trio that exists today. You bear witness to the energy, charisma, vocal power and acoustic domination that transports you to a time when The Kingston Trio was the band everyone emulated, loved and appreciated for the simplicity and purity of their sound.

Josh Reynolds and Mike Marvin are the son and nephew/adopted son of Kingston Trio original Nick Reynolds. They grew up in the same household spending much of their time accompanied by their childhood friend Tim Gorelangton; whose natural abundant musical talent and vocal tenacity was quickly identified by the famous Trio members. This was a musical home, an environment that was frequented by the biggest names in show business.

Josh, Mike and Tim were inspired by, motivated by and intentionally or not, mentored by affiliation each time a famous performer sat down in their living room, picked up a guitar or banjo and sang a song. There was nothing more natural than playing the music that was around them. It took quite a few years before they were able to duplicate the sound that had won the hearts of the world.

If you were lucky enough to have seen and heard the original Kingston Trio in the 50s and 60s, come now, and relive the cultural sensation that represents the greatest moment of Déjà-vu that can come your way for the price of a concert ticket. The Lion Sons.

Friday April 28th is the return of the Ocean Park Wailers to Club 240


Spawned in the heart of beautiful Ocean Park Surrey, the Ocean Park Wailers is an organic musical project. It began as three experienced but retired musicians coming back to their craft. At first, it was to
just jam and play some of their favorite tunes from the past five decades. It has swelled and transformed into a popular seven-member South Surrey band that particularly delights the dancers in the crowd. From the deep Blues, to Rock and R & B, to Roots and originals, the Wailers play what they love - and judging from the audience reaction…it shows.
Club 240 is located at the Crescent Beach Legion 2643 128th Street, South Surrey Phone (604) 535-1043
All tickets are $20 and are available at the Legion box office daily from 3pm-9pm, online at www.brownpapertickets.ca or at the door.
Doors open for all shows at 7pm Showtime 8pm
For for information on this or any future shows, please go to our website at http://www.club240.ca/
See you at Club 240!!
