Q&A with Felix Cavaliere

Their music can be heard across the globe, spreading the timeless message of peace, love, and happiness. The “Young” Rascals first arrived on the scene in the early ‘60s, and within two-to-three years time, they climbed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 list, with nine hit singles, including such chart-toppers as, “Good Lovin,” “Groovin,” and “People Got to Be Free.”

The original Rascals consisted of four kids from Garfield, New Jersey, who were given their shot at the big time after catching the attention of promoter/manager Sid Bernstein, following a high-energy performance at Long Island’s elite club, The Barge.

“Long Island was where the Rascals were discovered,” said keyboard player/vocalist Felix Cavaliere. “Everything began for us out there.”

Bayside Boxer Triumphs At Golden Gloves

Stepping into the ring at the Barclay’s Center on April 2, 25-year-old boxer Stylianos Kalamaras of Bayside was confident he would defeat his opponent Franklin Johnson and take the title as the 2015 New York Golden Gloves Light Heavyweight Champion.

With five victories under his belt – two by way of knock-out – Kalamaras was the only contender to knock his opponent to the canvas.

“I fight very aggressively,” Kalamaras said. “In the amateurs, you don’t really see people getting knocked out a lot.”

WESTCHESTER PLACES: Reid Castle

Reid Hall at Manhattanville College in Purchase is modeled after the historic estates left standing by European royalty in the medieval era. It has never been home to a king or queen or a duke or duchess, but it is was deemed a national landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The castle, which is built in the Norman Gothic style, earned the designation due to its rich history, architectural influences, landscape and many secrets.

Reid Castle serves as an office for many Manhattanville employees, such as Gary McLoughlin, 60, an employee with the college’s Office of Disability Services. “For me, it provides a sense of place deeply rooted in tradition,” McLoughlin said.The castle was constructed as an estate for Pony Express tycoon Benjamin Holladay in 1864. It was originally known as Ophir Farm and served as a home for the tycoon. Unfortunately for Holladay, by 1873 he had lost most of his wealth, which led him to put the mansion up for public sale.

More than a decade later, the estate became the first residence in Westchester County to be equipped with both telephone and electric wiring. However, one month before the estate’s new owner, Whitelaw Reid, and his wife, Elizabeth, planned to move in, a short circuit started a fire that engulfed the house, leaving only the granite foundation remaining.

Q&A w/ Far Rock Blues Guitarist Bert Elliot

Blues musician Bert Elliot first moved to Rockaway when he was about 10-yearsold. There, he attended P.S. 114 for about three years, before moving from his uncle’s house on Beach 140th Street in Belle Harbor to the Ocean Bay Housing projects at Beach 57th Street and Beach Channel Drive in Edgemere.

Elliot first developed a passion for music after picking up the drums in fourth grade. He went on to graduate from Far Rockaway High School, before attending Queens College, where he worked toward honing his craft.

In 1978, he graduated with a degree in music composition, and just a few years later, wound up getting a publishing deal, to write background/theme music for network television.

“That kept me staying busy for a while during the 80s and up through the 90s,” Elliot said.

While composing music for MTV, Maury and Jerry Springer, he continued touring with his good friend and fellow musician, Gary Toms.

Bottom line, if you enjoyed the original, you will love seeing this movie brought to life. However, a word of advice, although it has a PG-13 rating, the film and its subject matter will go over the head of some underdeveloped minds.

It’s not bloody and there is no sex or outlandish language, but the story itself is about cybernetics, the human “soul” and the evolution of our consumerist ways. It’s like telling a 9-year-old to read Nietzsche, it’s just not going to happen.

Q&A w/ NYC Party Animal Andrew W.K.

Andrew W.K. is so much more than just a rock and roll party animal. He is also a classically trained singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer, actor, motivational speaker, columnist and radio personality.

Check out Salute Magazine for the full interview and more.

 

Short for Wilkes-Krier, W.K. first rose to fame in 2001 with his major-label debut album I Get Wet from Island/Def Jam Records, which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers charts. The album also drummed up controversy overseas for its cover art, which many felt depicted an image of cocaine abuse.

Salute Magazine caught up with Andrew W.K. last December, to discuss parties, politics, sports anthems, his advice column, “Ask Andrew W.K.” and his annual performance at Revolution Bar and Music Hall in Amityville, N.Y.

Q&A w/ Flesh-N-Bone

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their GRAMMY Award winning song, “Tha Crossroads,” Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are headed across the country for a series of live concerts and meet-and-greet events—including upcoming performances at the PlayStation Theater in Times Square, Manhattan on Feb. 24 and The Emporium in Patchogue, Long Island on Feb. 25.

 

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony formed in 1991, but didn’t hit it big until 1993, when “the Godfather of West Coast gangsta rap” and N.W.A. co-founder Eric “Eazy-E” Wright signed five rappers from Cleveland, Ohio—”Krayzie,””Layzie,” “Bizzy,” “Wish” and “Flesh”—to his label, Ruthless Records.

According to Stanley Howse, a.k.a. Flesh-n-Bone, “Crossroads” was originally written in dedication of Wallace “Wally” Laird III—a departed friend of the group—but after Wright died, in March 1995, they decided to go back and re-record “Tha Crossroads” for their second studio album E. 1999 Eternal.

“The record was pushed back around the time Eazy-E started to fall sick,” Howse said. “So, right now, there are about three or four different versions out there.”

David Banner’s ‘God Box’ Is The Album You Will Need in 2017

Mississippi-born rapper/producer David Banner is on fire right now, and it has got us here at AWM pumped for his forthcoming studio album, The God Box, available May 19, from A Banner Vision.

Last year, Banner gave listeners an exclusive sneak peek at his creative process, with the release of his “Before The Box” mixtape. It’s an extremely satisfying glimpse at Banner’s creative process and shows the significant progress he made to shape a different kind of sound than we are used to hearing from the artist who brought us The Greatest Story Ever Told.

Although Banner’s seventh full-length studio album was originally expected to be released in 2016, delays in the production process led him to hold back the date until May 2017.
