Sit Back and Listen

Lestat (Jan Mehlich)

Performer's Cafe is the place to visit when you feel like listening to some real groovy music. This is the second music podcast show available to listen to anytime, produced by Lydia Lilli. On the current show, which is 5 hours long, she's even included music from the Maltese rock band “Winter Moods”. I think you’d enjoy the shows which she hosts and produces. Although it’s available as a free subscribe podcast on ITUNES, it’s easier for people  to just hear it at www.performerscafe.com. It’s a long show, over five hours long, but you can listen to a little at a time day or night.

 The playlist and bands, musicians, singer-songwriters always change. Lydia tries to feature as many different artists and songs as she can from everywhere. Show # 2 features Winter Moods from Malta, some calypso and reggae music, artists from the UK, from Germany, from Canada, the U.S., etc.

You will find specific details announcing the songs, who the performers are, where they are from, their websites, where they are appearing, etc. The site even features an interview each month with a different recording artist. This month it's with UK jazz and funk saxman SHILTS (a/k/a Paul Weimer) who now resides in California and performs all around the world with top jazz acts. Quite a few of his recordings feature on show #2.

The next show will be available sometime in May. Lydia says, "I also feature various comedians in my live comedy and music show productions too. And – I am always seeking music submissions from singer-songwriters, bands and musicians from all over the world. They can e-mail me at Lydia@performerscafe.com with their information and links to their music and cds. I also encourage them to visit the PERFORMERS CAFÉ Facebook page for other information. I would love to feature more music from Mediterranean countries and this is why I encourage people to recommend bands and musicians to me. The purpose of PERFORMERS CAFÉ is to play music that some people may not normally ever get a chance to hear in their part of the world. So the more song submissions I get, the more I can feature artists from everywhere."
