Lucky Souls – Downtime – March 15 2012

Lucky Souls – Downtime – March 15 2012

Well, I took a little time off from my normal venturing from venue to venue last week so that I could work on some video editing. Which means, I don’t really have much to give you all as far as what really great bands I saw, because I didn’t see any! I do, however have a video of The Folkadelics(http://thefolkadelics.com/) posted on the Lucky Souls site(http://blog.luckysoulsproductions.com/), so check it out when you get a chance.
Since I don’t have much to report, I would like to mention some upcoming festivals that you may want to mark on your calendars. Coming up on May 18th-20th  is The 7th Annual Bluegrass on the Bogs(http://bluegrassonthebogs.com/), which takes place at Jellystone Cape Cod at Maple Park(http://www.mapleparkfamilycampground.com/). Yeah, it’s in MA, but well worth the ride & there are even a couple of local CT bands, The NamelessTrio & One Way Track , that will be playing at it. I myself have attended 5 of the 7 yrs that this has been happening & I find it to be the best festival to kick off my camping & festival season every yr.

And, Soupstock Music & Arts Festival(http://www.soupstockfestival.org/) will be  taking place once again in Shelton on June 9th. This is the 3rd yr for Soupstock & there will be lots of great live music, vendors, art shows & of course, soup. And all proceeds go to further art, craft & music education for children & young adults. So, save the date & head on down to Soupstock III for a great day with the whole family.

Since I didn’t head out last week or over the weekend for music, that means that it’s been almost 2 weeks since I’ve seen any live music. You can bet this girl is ready to get out this weekend & I’m hoping you all are too, so here are some things that are happening over the next few days:

Aim D’Amaro – Lucky Souls Productions

By the time she was 12, Amy D’Amaro knew that she wanted a career that would keep her surrounded by music. At 16, she became an intern at WPLR radio in New Haven, CT where she would stay for 5 yrs learning all aspects of music programming at a commercial radio station. In the time that she was at WPLR, she also became friends with many musicians on the local scene & spent much of her time taking in music at venues all over New Haven County.

In 1993, Amy left the radio station to raise her son, but her love of music & the local scene never faded. In 2003 she began what would become a very successful dog walking & pet sitting service, but still spent much of her time checking out the local music scene in both New Haven & Fairfield Counties. In 2009 she began Lucky Souls Productions to help out the local musicians she knew by promoting their music through live video footage. In 2011, Lucky Souls grew & began booking musicians in some of the local venues. When not busy walking dogs or editing videos, Amy still spends much of her time out with friends, supporting the local music scene & venues & attending music festivals.
