Happy Day Music Fans!
With extreme good cheer I bring you this week's edition of "The Newsroom Sessions."
Each week I'll be interviewing a local band in the Press Herald TV Studio and it will include a couple of live songs. Hoorah! This week it was ShaShaSha.
ShaShaSha will be performing on Thursday, July 25 in Portland's Monument Square as part of the summer Alive at Five concert series. The Other Bones will be kicking things off at 5 and you can expect ShaShaSha to go on at around 6:15 p.m. Be there or be square. In Monument Square. Get it? I don't really either so we're cool.
Frontman Dominc Lavoie was kind enough to drop by our studio with Dan Capaldi and Scott Mohler. The rest of the band is Pete Genova, Kyle Gervais, Justin Wiley and Chuck Gagne.
Here's a chat with yours truly and Lavoie and two songs by a stripped down ShaShaSha. See the full magilla on Thursday. Enjoy!
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
