The Stollers

The Stollers's textured musical style is informed by rock, and folk. and jazz, with strains of classical music as well as world influences.

The Stollers' first band was The Wizard’s Hound. After the Hound, The Stollers' performances became sparse but they continued to write and occasionally play together at selected NYC venues eventually leading to their CD Stationary Sun.

Since the release of Stationary Sun, The Stollers (Brad and Lesley) have been seen live, performing songs from the album as well as other new and old songs. They have been joined by Joe Refano on bass, Shawn Murray on drums, and sometimes Sly Scott (from the original band) on Sax and flute.

In the Studio with Joe Refano - The Liverpool Shuffle and other musical endeavors

When Joe was young he saw the Beatles live at Shea Stadium in 1966, saw the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and the Monkees. All of this shaped his music career in which he was a part of Herman's Hermits, the Monkees (talk about full circle) and the Liverpool Shuffle, a Beatles tribute band. You will hear amazing stories from someone who witnessed rock history as it unfolded. You will hear some great original tunes played on this radio show broadcast on 88.1 FM as a co-production of My Father's Place Radio. (Joe also played there too.)

Musician and Actor Jeremy Clyde - My Father's Place Radio

Jeremy Clyde is a great guest who provides not only British charm and elegance but great stories! Listen to this one hour in-depth interview with Richard Solomon in advance of Jeremy's performance at My Father's Place at the Roslyn Hotel. (Chris Maffei - sound engineer for this recording - thanks Chris!)

Jeremy Clyde is not just one half of sixties British Invasion duo Chad & Jeremy, he’s also an accomplished actor and songwriter who recently embarked on a one-album-a-year solo project entitled ‘The Bottom Drawer Sessions’. Jeremy takes the stage in a rare solo show to launch the newest installment of The Bottom Drawer Sessions, performing new songs, some Chad & Jeremy classics, and stripped down versions of deep cuts from the psychedelic years.

The first of Chad Stuart & Jeremy Clyde's 14 U.S. chart hits was 1963’s "Yesterday's Gone", followed by "A Summer Song", "Willow Weep for Me", "If I Loved You", "Before and After" and more. TV appearances included "Shindig", "Hullabaloo", "The Patty Duke Show", "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "Batman". Their musical adventure-and evolution-continued with the hits "Distant Shores" and "You Are She," from late 1966, but they turned a corner with the September 25, 1967 LP release ‘Of Cabbages And Kings".

Looking back at the classic album, AllMusic guide says Chad & Jeremy "were gifted songwriters who could work outside the standard pop framework of the day, and Chad Stuart (who orchestrated the album) was a talented and imaginative arranger who gives the material a sound that's both rich and intimate."

That songwriting gift never left Jeremy Clyde, and through decades of off and on touring with Chad & Jeremy and on and on acting on British television--including "Downton Abbey"-- and the stages of London's West End. Beginning with the 2014 release of "The Bottom Drawer Sessions No. 1", Jeremy Clyde has --with more than 50 sweeping, evocative, inspired recordings- reclaimed the title of ‘songwriter’. He describes the Bottom Drawer sessions as “analog songs for an analog age”. With his 2018 U.S. tour dates - on his own and with Peter Asher - another title, "troubadour" can't be far behind.

Special thanks to Jeremy for a wonderful interview.

In The Studio with Russ Alexander of the Hitman Blues Band

The Hitman Blues Band is not a cover band-they play original, modern blues which is why they have been invited to perform at My Father's Place at the Roslyn Hotel August 10, 2018.

Russ Alexander brought photos and great music and shared them on the airwaves with Rich Solomon, host of Taking Care of Business and My Father's Place Radio.
