We had a great Live In Studio Session with Beebs from Beebs and Her Money Makers Friday on Sound Waves.  Beebs talked about her new upcoming album "Eye Shine", her album release party next month in Orlando, her upcoming performance at LagoonFest Saturday AND performs 3 songs.

In early 2009, in a dimly lit, smoke filled bar on the East Coast of Florida, Kilt the Messenger powered up their guitars, struck in their bagpipes and introduced a small crowd to a brand of indie punk rock, the likes of which few had heard before.

We were thrilled to have a Live In Studio session with Laura Rain and The Caesars all the way from Detroit.  The band is currently on tour in support of their album Gold.  If you missed the session you can hear the podcast here:

One of our favorite local bands 23 Treez have recently releases a new CD 'In the Middle'.  We had the band Live in Studio for a session and interview about their new record.
