Alligator recording artists Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials, touring in support of their latest Alligator CD, THE BIG SOUND OF LIL' ED & THE BLUES IMPERIALS, will perform at The Iridium in New York on Monday, March 5, 2018. MOJO magazine included the new CD in their influential Top Ten Best Blues Albums Of 2016. Currently celebrating 30 history-making years together, Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials ply their musical talents with skills that have been honed to a razor's edge. Mixing smoking slide guitar boogies and raw-boned shuffles with the deepest slow-burners, Lil' Ed Williams and his Blues Imperials -- bassist (and Ed's half-brother) James 'Pookie' Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton -- deliver gloriously riotous, rollicking and intensely emotional blues. Ed guested on TBS Television's CONAN, with Conan O'Brien proclaiming Lil' Ed as 'the man who taught me to play the blues'. The band recently won the coveted 2017 Blues Music Award for Band Of The Year, the same honor they received in 2009 and 2007. They received the Living Blues Award for Best Live Performer three times in five years. In 2017 they were named Blues Band Of The Year by Blues Blast Magazine.

Amanda Wingfield, the centerpiece of Tennessee Williams' 1944 masterpiece, THE GLASS MENAGERIE, is much like the staple Southern hospitality, the lemon meringue pie. On the outside, she appears to be all sugar and whipped cream but the topping only provides a thin layer to cover a curt, tart filling.

BWW Interview: Weaving Many Musical Threads into a Theatrical Life: A Conversation with Peter Oyloe
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Jul 11, 2017

'There have been so many musical threads throughout my life ever since I was a little guy. Music was something I did early on. I would listen to my dad, who had a beautiful voice, sing, and together we would listen to his vinyl record collection. I was always drawn to music written before I was born. There is something about the vulnerability, the universality, and the craft of earlier music that has always attracted me.' The speaker is Peter Oyloe who is touring with The Hank Band, his concert recreation of the music of the legendary folk/country western singer. Oyloe and the band's most recent gig was to open Maine State Music Theatre's 2017 Monday concert series with two virtually sold out performances of Hank Williams' music at Brunswick's Pickard Theater on July 10th. In conversation with Broadway World in the panoramic setting of a private reception in the band's honor on scenic Mere Point, Oyloe seems exceptionally soft spoken, but a few hours later when he takes the stage as Hank Williams, he transforms himself into the powerhouse singer Williams was. It is a role that has changed his life, Oyloe says, and a connection that now runs deeply as one of the primary threads in his own musical tapestry.

CAMINO REAL by Tennessee Williams Opens in New Orleans at the Marigny Opera House This July
by BWW News Desk - Jun 28, 2017

You've never seen Tennessee Williams like this before. From the characters to the setting, nothing compares to Camino Real. The play takes place in a mythic border town situated in the Southwest, or perhaps tucked just inside of Mexico, which sits in the shadow of a gargantuan border wall built to keep the bad hombres out-or is it built to keep the residents of the town in? This summer The Tennessee Williams Theatre Company of New Orleans will transport audiences to this sultry dreamscape at the glorious Marigny Opera House (725 St. Ferdinand Street) beginning in July and running through August.
