On this episode of Local Exposure, we discuss New Beginnings.

Introduction: A re-evaluation of the 'P-Word'

Part 1: Meet Belinda Cai, the newest contributor to Local Exposure

Part 2: Get a preview of the Cincinnati Cyclones 2015-2016 season  from Kristin Ropp, VP and GM for the Cyclones and US Bank Arena.

Part 3: Belinda speaks with Rachelle Caplan, the head organizer of LadyFest Cincinnati and talks about the schedule of events. Belinda also wrote an article about LadyFest for this week's CityBeat.

As is so often the case with many bands, the roots of Jack Burton Overdrive can be found in the long-lasting friendship between founding members Jack Rininger and Nick Barrows [JetLab]. Jack and Nick have been writing and playing music together for decades and, in 2006, decided to embark on an exploration of popular music played on the concertina and the ukulele. These experiments resulted in a loveably quirky and endearing bohemian-style of front-porch music making.

Two Cincinnati gems will join forces tonight at the Woodward Theater for a delicious alchemy of classical and Americana-indie music.

Leggy: Nice Try

May 1, 2015

Those who live by the adage that "Less is More" probably haven't been properly introduced to the album Nice Try - the second release by Cincinnati's Leggy.

Leggy is a 3-piece band consisting of Chris Campbell [drums], Kerstin Bladh [bass] and Véronique Allaer [guitar], whose sound is the musical equivalent of peach schnapps - equally sweet and dangerous. 

Cincinnati acquires Jazz Hall of Fame

Mar 10, 2015

For those who appreciate music, recognizing the great artists who work so hard to create it is quite important. Musicians devote their lives to composing passion into impacting melodies that serve to move the soul. To recognize the artist for their work is to let them know we appreciate their gift, and thank them for sharing it. There are many award organizations that exist for this reason, such as the Grammys and Hard Rock, but those only begin to touch on the number of musicians who deserve our gratitude. 

Local musical artists The Mitchells, Ric Hordinski, and Daniel Martin Moore are teaming up for a great evening of music on Friday, February 6 at The Woodward Theater, located at 1404 Main St. in Over-the-Rhine.
