Presidents Of The United States Of America Interview

Most diehard music fans are aware that the Presidents of the United States of America were nominated for two Grammy Awards “back in the day,” due largely to huge hits like “Lump,” “Peaches” and “Kitty.” However, that’s only the tip of the iceberg for the Seattle based band, which was formed in 1993 by Chris Ballew and company.

Soul For Real Interview

The Dalyrimple brothers (Jason, Andre, Christopher and Brian) grew up singing in the church but by 1995, the entire world would get to hear the gift of their voices with the release of the album “Candy Rain.” That debut record put out the smash hits “Candy Rain” and “Every Little Thing I Do” and began a career in R&B that is still very much alive today. Dave O recently spoke with all four brothers about how they got their “break,” their friendship with Heavy D, new projects and much, much more!

Vengaboys Interview

When it comes to late 90’s party music, Vengaboys have the market cornered, thanks to bangers like “We Like To Party” and “Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!” Vengaboys, which consist of Robin, Kim, Denise and Donny, were originally formed in Amsterdam and still call it home (when they aren’t traveling doing shows)! Dave O recently had the pleasure of SKYPE’ing with Robin, who was full of amazing stories, from how the group came together, to working with Perez Hilton, to touring the U.S., to talking about the new single (“Hot Hot Hot”). Definitely an interview that makes it easy to see why Vengaboys are adored by Read More …

Hear more about that unreal story in this candid and inspirational interview that talks about King being diagnosed and overcoming MS, working with the Notorious B.I.G., her new album and much, much more!

Mr. Big Interview

The song “To Be With You” hit #1 in 15 countries back in 1991 for Los Angeles based rock band Mr. Big. The group then used that success to build a successful career that spanned the remainder of the 1990’s, before a bitter break up ended things in 2002. However, as of late 2009, the group is back together and making new music, as well as touring the world. Dave O recently SKYPED with Eric Martin of Mr. Big to find out how he came up with “To Be With You,” what the band breakup was like and if he ever thought they’d get back Read More …

Alice Deejay became famous in 1999 with the release of the song “Better Off Alone,” which to this day, gets lots of airplay around the world. The group was formed in Amsterdam and followed up “Better Off Alone” with the single “Back In My Life.” Unfortunately for fans of Alice Deejay’s infectiously catchy sounds, the group would only release one album, “Who Needs Guitars Anyway?,” before breaking up in 2002. Dave O recently caught up with Judith Pronk of Alice Deejay to discuss not only the good old days and why Alice Deejay disbanded, but also her exciting new clothing line, her days in makeup Read More …

US3 Interview

Any 90’s music fanatic will remember the song “Cantaloop” by Us3 for its infectious jazz grooves mixed with hip hop.

And did you know that he later visited the Birdland Music Club in New York City, only to discover it was now a strip club?!?
