A WRAP ON THE
DIGITAL CAFÉ TOUR'S
The DCT's Summer 2006 Live Concert Series has drawn to a close - but that's only the beginning of the DCT's future! Look for more preview clips coming soon, folowed by "podconcerts" from each show, more Broaden Your Band segments and Tools of the Trade clips, plus more concert series happening in a variety of venues and universities!
On Saturday, June 17, 2006, Friday's Child launched the Digital Cafe Tour's Summer 2006 Live Concert Series at Luna Stage in Montclair with a rare blend of old favorites and first-time performances of new material. Saturday, June 24th was Indie Women Rising, featuring rising Country Blues Pop star, Laura Dodd, and hauntingly confessional singer/songwriter, Carrie Engdahl. Jersey Rocked on July 8 with home-grown rockers The Dark Marbles and a surprise command performance by Friday's Child. July 15th was Indie Women Rising II with Montclair local folk rock hero, Susan Chamberlain and New York's own piano-wielding songstress, Clare Cooper. July 22 was Jazz Night, featuring the critically acclaimed quintet The Mark Tonelli Group and Brazilian jazz artist Monika Oliveira with Portinho Trio. July 29th was Classical Chamber Music Night featuring The New Jersey Saxophone Ensemble. Who'da thunk that Funk & Punk would be such a slam dunk on August 5th with Nashville's southern-fried funk-fest Secret Gossip and local favorites The Audibles! August 12th was a Return to the Classic Rock Sound with the all-original bands Stranger's Vibe and The Fakers. August 19th was The DCT Wrap Party, with Hawaiian/Cajun rock artist Donovan Chapman, and repeat performances from Laura Dodd and Friday's Child, plus the sneak-preview videos from all of our artists were featured on a giant screen during a wine & cheese reception.
Each show was hosted by our official DCT emcee, WDHA-FM's Jeff Charone. The Luna Stage crew created a top-notch stage and lighting design, while DCT sponsor QSC has provided a state-of-the-art sound system.
