Wailing City Spotlight: Interview With Tony Perrone of 'Sunday Jazz'

Published October 16, 2021
Jazz lovers rejoice! Come relax with a cocktail or espresso and check out some local jazz every Sunday at 'Sunday Jazz Afternoons'! This new weekly event features a core group of seasoned local musicians, (with additional weekly guests sitting in), all set in a cozy café atmosphere in the upstairs front room of the Frohsinn Hall at the Mystic German Club.
I recently asked musician and event creator, Tony Perrone, some questions about the group, how it came together and what kind of vibe you can expect...as well as his thoughts and experiences as a jazz musician in our area. Dig it! --Meghan

Wailing City Spotlight: Interview with Ghost Child

Published October 14, 2021
For those of you, (like myself), that love alternative rock -- you're in luck. Ghost Child from Groton are bringing numerous styles together in their songwriting to create a familiar yet new take to the alternative rock sound -- and its solid. 

Their most recent album 'As the Moonlight Backs the Sun' -- released last year, has a strong 90's alternative influence with a punk and emo flair - not to mention was skillfully engineered and produced. It definitely has my vote for best autumn driving tunes right now. My favorite tracks are "This is the Way", "Oh, Love", "Remember" and "Better Off"-- which you can listen to in the article below. 

These guys have a quality show lined up for this Saturday October 16 at 33 Golden Street in New London. I recently asked the band some questions about their sound, writing/recording and what they've got coming up, check it! --Meghan

Wailing City Spotlight: Interview With Nick Bosse

Published October 7, 2021
Upon digging around on social media for shows and musicians to help promote on Wailing City, we came across Nick Bosse - a country music singer/songwriter from North Stonington that is seemingly quite busy this fall, (and beyond), with a full schedule of gigs all over New London county. 

Nick's latest single "What Happened to Country" has had over 160,000 streams since it's release in January of this year. Nick also has a huge dedicated fan base called the "Bosse Posse" -- how cool is that? 

Jeffrey Thunders, (local musician/Wailing City contributor), was as curious as I was in learning more about Nick Bosse and recently did a little interview with him. Check it out! --Meghan
