The Ram Jam TV Show has been away for a little while. I have been dealing with a family emergency for a few months that resulted in my being taken away from my proper duties. Let’s start this blog off with a great band I had the pleasure of inviting in the studio, The Slade Rhythm Band. Led by Boo Jones and consisting of some incredible musicians such as singer/ sax player Jazzy Steve, Guitarist Willie C, Percussionist Mark Pratt,  Base player Larry Carter, Drummer Terry Page and Female vocalist Yonni Soul. The Slade Rhythm Band are a newly formed band from the DMV bringing their brand of GO- GO music to a welcoming audience, belting out covers and original songs that keep the audience grooving throughout their set. It was great having them in the studio and even the film crew managed the get their boogie on while the played.

I know things have been tough since the Zimmerman trial and I must say I am at a loss for words other than my prayers go out to the Martin family, no parent should have to bury their children and say goodbye too soon.TRAYVON_MARTIN_NEW_PHOTO_1

I just want to say I for one will be glad when things like this will end in our society, when the violence and stereotypes will no longer be an issue so we can stay focused on the things that really matter in life which is to live in harmony and peace.

I love all my Ram Jam fans out there and pray for each and every one of you to be kept safe and blessed.

Until then Keep your heads up and reach for the stars.

Happy Jamming!!


Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show

Ok no matter how much I don’t want to admit it, we are in the music business.  That being said, if you have a platform like this I believe there is a responsibility to share and (at times) defend the industry.

Letter to Super Bowl XLVI Entertainment Organizers:

Lest we forget, music is an art.


I am writing to you today about the entertainment at Super Bowl XLVI, not to overlook prior big games.  It is understandable that in best taste and best interest certain regulations be closely followed and respected.  However, I admire the way you have taken control of the outrageousness of the acts.  That being said…WHAT COULD YOU POSSIBLY BE THINKING?!   Madonna is hot.  Fine, we get it, don’t think it was the best choice, but fine.  What do I remember about Madonna’s performance?  NOTHING.  What do I remember about the performance?  An artist trying to be remembered…

What could you expect?
