Wicked: This One Is For Kells

This one is for my friend, Kells. This is absolutely incredible. Kristen Chenoweth originated the role of Glinda in the Broadway hit, Wicked. She selects a random person to share a duet with her at the end of her concerts – except this time, unknown to her, the selection is a voice teacher. Life provides…

Brother, can you spare a dime?

Before rehearsals tonight, I gotta call from a buddy of mine who wants me to come out and sing karaoke next week at The Place. This is for a March of Dimes fundraiser. Because it starts at 7:00, I told him the entire cast aught to be able to pop in as we’re rehearsing a…

The Challenge

Unbelievable! When Mr. Kells came home, I told him of the silly argument I am having with B. Basically, the argument is that I would prefer America the Beautiful as the National Anthem as opposed to The Star Spangled Banner. So who does Mr. Kells side with? B.!!!!!! What a load of bull crap!! Went…

A Little Palate Cleanser

Cover of Gotye’s “Somebody I Used To Know” executed flawlessly by 5 people on one guitar – at the same time: I flagged the original Gotye song here before it blew up on the charts… Here’s a couple that I like – first a Brit electro-pop group called Fenech-Soler with “All I Know”: And now a…

Missing Mississippi

I miss reading the posts from our host with the most. I thought I could cheer you up with the Scottish twins, Charlie and Craig. They are called The Proclaimers. Hmmm……. I can’t seem to distance myself from twins. I’m surrounded by them….literally. Not to bitch and moan, but the sisters are twins, one of…

Dedication

I just wanted to dedicate a song to you boys. Hopefully, in between your manicures and waxings, you’ll have time to listen. This is sung by Bernadette Peters and Tom Wopat.

A Little Night Music

So I’ve been driving around singing this number and scaring the hell out of fellow drivers and pedestrians whilst I do, but it got me to thinking (never a good thing) Hey! What if people had a bit of knowledge about the piece that I’m caterwauling? Well, hell, If Dave Ramsey can do baby steps,…

Drop the Ball

So I was hunting for the lullaby from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang that I used to sing to the boys when they were young and I came across a middle-school version of the song. I thought, wow, pretty sweet job, girls. Then, I started thinking about their talent and getting a little pissed off because…

The Musical Musings of Kellsbells

I read with interest your article “What I’m listening to.” Being a musician, I’m always very curious about what people like to listen to because you truly open a window into another’s soul. Unfortunately for me, most people are a bit turned off when I mention the latest opera I’m listening to. So…. this article…

What I’m Listening To…

I’m about half my age when it comes to music and I really dig the Brit music scene…I’ve been listening to a band called Kasabian lately – good stuff… The posthumously released Amy Winehouse album, Lioness, looks to be a great one…
