Bongo Boy Rock n' Roll TV Show Presents Indie Music Videos from Around The World Ep,1033
Hold on to your hats, boys & girls. Another episode of Bongo Boy TV-Indie Music From Around The World is upon us, and this collection of music videos, makes it my favorite to date according to International Indie Music reviewer Bobby Gottesman, Toronto Canada.
Danish band, Vinyl Floor opens this month’s show with “Change The Song“, a way cool 1960’s pop song, with a 1980’s vibe. The guitar riff and solo are wonderfully simple, and the vocals and harmonies, are wonderful. Add hand clapping, and well, you have a great track, playing against a video that cuts between the band, and the story. http://www.vinylfloorband.com/
The United States’ Sound Drive gives us “Hello“. This is one hell of a band. The vocals are great, accompanied by cool harmony, and dynamite guitar. The melody and changes are exciting, and the hook is unforgettble. There is a wonderfully Beatlesque feel to this song, with the video focusing on the band’s performance. Very cool. http://www.sound-drive.com/
Canadian Matt Blais delivers a rock classic with “Running“. The video offers some great editing, but the song got my attention. The guitar is dynamite with great licks and riffs, and the vocals superbly somewhere between Bryan Adams and Barney Bentall. The melody still plays in my head. http://mattblaismusic.com/
E RillA, from The United States, donates the Hip Hop “I’m Gone“, with a great black & white classic film opening. There are wonderful strings, and some way cool changes. http://www.keepitrilla.com/
From Portugal, Heylel‘s “The Prophet” is an interesting Progressive-Rock track. The vocals are wonderful, while keyboards gently push the musical movements along. The video has way cool special effects, but I would expect no less from a Progressive-Rock song. http://www.heylel.net/
Amy Schugar, from The United States, delivers “500 Miles Away“, an exceptionally cool blues number. The simplicity of the guitar, bass, piano, and drums make it incredibly accessible. The vocals are outstanding. This girl can sing the blues!! The guitar riffs and solo are great, and the video gives us great shots of Amy’s guitar playing. http://www.amyschugar.com/
The show concludes with The Accelerators, another American band, with a wonderfully cool song, “Sex In A Cemetery“. The video, shot in black & white, is simply cuts of the band performing, and goings on in a cemetary at night, with horror film stereotypes. And it works. The song is wonderfully punk-rock, something that could be on The Ramones album of your choice. There are cool harmonies, and a great guitar solo. Listen to the lyrics…I haven’t stopped laughing. http://www.myspace.com/theaccelerators
And let’s not forget the cool promo clips for Bongo Boy Records’ Chris Pope, and his new single, a cover of The Kinks’ “Dedicated Follower Of Fashion“, and The Satisfactors soon to be released album, also on Bongo Boy Records. You don’t want to miss this episode !
The Bongo Boy Rock n’ Roll TV Show series Presents: Indie music Video From Around The World Ep1032
The new episode No 1032, has seven indie artists that have accomplished a lot to get their music videos on television. Some have traveled around the world like the Russian band Mumiy Troll, who were recently featured in the Wall Street Journal entitled, “A Russian Band Looks for a Home Abroad” , an article by Robert P. Walzer.
In May, The Bongo Boy Rock n’ Roll TV Show enlisted together with Broadjam, to hold the first “Bongo Boy Indie Music Video Contest” and generated a winner with Texas band Life Is Hard. Their song "Ten Miles 'till Empty", is a cool country song with enjoyable harmonies, and a great slide guitar. Along with a pretty slick production of their video, it’s easy to see why they were the winners! https://www.facebook.com/lifeishardmusic
Another Texan, J-Hen, joins in the new episode and delivers a super cool classic hip hop/pop song with "Baby Come On". The video is outta this world and can this guy sing! Dynamite on the vocals! https://www.facebook.com/therealjhen
Also in this episode is previous BBRR guest, Funkmaster Milo Z, from New York City. Milo Z current song "Do Ya Thang” is a rap/hip hop tune with a twist! This danceable song has some cool guitar riffs and a great horn section! https://www.facebook.com/milozfunk2012
You can still catch Milo Z previous interview online with BBRR host Wayne Olivieri. Check out The Bongo Boy Rock n' Roll TV Show series Ep1014: https://vimeo.com/61475087
Be sure to catch Gar Francis, the New Jersey garage guru, in the new episode! He does a great job with effects in the lyric video for "Man on the Moon". This video includes some wonderful art by Dutch painter Cornelis le Mair, along with some cool guitar licks and a beautiful melody by Gar; this is one video you don’t want to miss! https://www.facebook.com/garfrancis
Next up we have Bruce Lev, out of Arizona. He does a nice job on his song "Catwoman", and his video is titled "Catwoman Returns!” The song is filled with great guitar riffs and licks, and a cool solo played over a great bass line. There are sweet changes, with nice harmonies and a cool melody. The video edits back and forth between the band playing on a river bank, and other images. Bruce Lev also received songwriting & video honors in the 2014 Akademia Music Awards:
for Best Hard Rock Song – CATWOMAN and Best Music Video CATWOMAN RETURNS! https://www.facebook.com/BruceLevMusic
Natalie Jean, from the United States, provides us with the electro/pop dance track, "Mission". Her vocals have great effects, while the video uses time lapse techniques. Natalie Jean was nominated in the #IMEA's - International Music and Entertainment Association, Inc. - IMEA - Christian/Gospel Female Artist of The Year and nominated in the HMMA Hollywood Music in Media Awards for Vocal (Female). https://www.facebook.com/NatalieJeanObsession
Also included is a cool teaser for The Satisfactors' new album "Gimme My Rock n' Roll", which is coming soon from Bongo Boy Records.

Bongo Boy Rock n' Roll TV Show No.1031 - Presents INDIE MUSIC VIDEOS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
Radio Drive, featuring Kevin Gullickson are back for another week with 'A Taste Of Heaven'. This band from The United States song combines a strong melody, sweet riffs and a 1980's feel. Add to that some great visuals, and you have one dynamite video. http://www.radio-drive.com previous Ep.1030
A German entry, Hella Donna, featuring None Like Joshua (NLJ), the American rapper, offer 'Gimme Lights, Camera, Action'. An interesting fusion of elctro-pop and hip hop showcases this woman's great voice, and some wonderful video techniques. http://www.helladonna.com
Hella Donna has been seen on The Bongo Boy Rock n' Roll TV Show Ep. 1023
An English entry, 'Hard Heart' from Sharp Practise, is a wonderful blues song, with a video appropriately shot in black & white. There are way cool special effects, nice transitions, and some cool keyboards. http://www.sharppractise.com
Another American entry, Rob Rise On Belief, gives us 'The Chosen One', is an amazingly interesting video. There is acoustic guitar, and dynamite vocals, that kicks into a way cool rock tune, with great guitar and wonderful harmonies. An incredibly powerful song. http://www.robriseonbelief.com
Also from the United States, Saydah with 'Bound2Break', shows how to make a great music video. Amazing vocals, great piano, and some very cool synthesized horns, filmed in black & white. The minimal instrumentation keeps the focus on this woman's voice, as it should be. Courtesy of Wu Tang's Zu Films INC. Music Video Editor Cameron Starke. Writer Ephraim. Songwriter Saydah http://www.saydahzufilms.com
Chand K Nova, delivers 'Solar Bliss' all the way from England. This is a way cool animated video, set amid an instrumental that showcases amazing guitar. All in all, way cool. http://www.reverbnation.com/chandknova
Added to this episode, you lucky viewers, is a sample of Jana Peri's "Ballerina Of The Bowery", featuring clips of Jana, Gar Francis, and Kurt Reil, and a drop in spot by Bruce Ferguson of The Easy Outs. What else can I say. The show rocks.

Bongo Boy Rock n' Roll TV Show No.1030 Presents INDIE MUSIC VIDEOS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
Rozii Chaos an English entry packs a solid song into a cool, glossy video. "The Beginning Of The End" , a power-pop track with rock instrumentation, has an unforgettable hook. The visuals are dynamite, I mean, there's not much better than a leather clad woman playing guitar! This is just plain sexy as hell. Composed & recorded by Rozii Chaos at Circle Studio Birmingham, UK . Mastered in Los Angeles by Steve Baughman. The Video was shot on location by Rolling Vision in the UK. http://roziichaos.com/
"Slow It Down", a U.S.A. entry by The Wild Fruit, is a great rock-blues tune with great vocals and some very cool changes in tempo. The video cuts in and out of footage of the band playing in what appears to be a Louisiana swamp. Americana is captured by the ever present white Camero, and the female drummer may just be sexier than a female guitarist. Way cool. Created by David Harrison Skipper of Reel Team 6. http://www.reverbnation.com/thewildfruit
There can't be a representation of American music without the inclusion of Hip Hop. B Bless ft. The Gipht provide "She's Looking Good". With its great vocal effects, and special visual effects, this video is surprisingly entertaining. You can find the a track from B-Bless’ EP "The Found King". The Music Video was directed by the Savages of Savage Haus. https://myspace.com/paperchasecliquepce/
Secret Wish, an entry from Belgium offers "Ivory Tower". A keyboard centered sound helps to create a video filled with young women swaying and dancing to a 1980's electronic pop song. Wonderful to look at and an interesting listen. http://www.secretwishmusic.com/
A Canadian entry, Blow Flyy, gives us "My Wings Will Take Me". The black & white footage presents a wonderful backdrop for the electronic effects of this Hip Hop song. With some visual Film Noire elements, this is fun to watch. https://blowflyy.bandpage.com/
Radio Drive, ft. Kevin Gullickson submitted "New Direction".The fast pace of the video edits is great amid the slower feel of the song, which by the way, has me thinking somewhere between Chris Issak and Chris DeBurgh. The drumming is exceptional, and the lead guitar made this song memorable. The music video was shot in Alexandria Egypt directed and edited by Lewis Sanders IV. http://www.radio-drive.com/
Another American entry, Joey Evans' "Blue Skies Ahead", is a cool country-pop song, playing amid quick edits of this singer-guitarist in various guises-cowboy, folk artist & mod rocker, standing in locations befitting his various incarnations. There are way cool transitions into and out of a drum & hand clapping break. The lead guitar work is dynamite, and the bright red Rickenbacker is very cool. http://www.bandmix.com/joey-evans/.
