High 5 Riot | The Riot Starts Now.

5th Annual Wham Bam Thank U Jam | August 15 – 17, 2014.

This month I am lucky enough to get to promo an alternative/hard rock band I know extremely well, because it’s a band that I actually front called, Killed By Art!  Due solely to the nomination and support of Killed By Art fans, KBA caught 3rd place in Music Connection’s September Featured Band contest and earned some free promo this month, so I get to actually tell you a little bit about one of my favorite projects ever, Killed By Art!

Just 4 years ago, I was passing through life’s daily grind and doing nothing musically at that time, except singing along with the car stereo or in the shower, when I get this amazing offer to try and sing and front a new hard rock project, and I found I just couldn’t refuse!  I had found a fantastic new outlet of expression for myself, and after some lineup adjustments and song-writing developed nicely in the first year of the project, we finally established a crazy good 5-member lineup (Kimberly Weiss-vocals; Bill Kirkbride-Guitar; Nathan Goff-Guitar & backing vocals; Todd Panstingel-Bass & backing vocals; Brian Wise- Drums) and a name, Killed By Art.


It was recently discovered that local woman, Michelle Mundy, for which multiple fundraising benefit shows have been held, is now facing several fraud charges.   She claimed to have stage 4 lymphoma cancer, and many local organizations and bands came together to help raise funds to support her cause.   The local music and business community came together and provided numerous free services to help raise as much funding as possible, only to find out that the funds were not used appropriately.  Check out this article from Buckeye Music Magazine about this fiasco and more about what happened and what happens now!

If you live outside the coverage area of SOSA (Southeastern Ohio), but want to become a supportive member of SOSA we have a membership category for everyone. While only songwriters from southeastern Ohio can be a Songwriter Member or a Songwriter-Team Member of SOSA, we do accept people in our other 5 categories: Musician Member, Jr. Musician Member, Poet/Lyricist Member, Community Member and Sponsor Member. Look them over and maybe you’ll decide to become a member of SOSA too! For more information about SOSA, you can contact me at



Well, I was definitely excited to see this month that Buckeye Music Magazine has expanded their Artist of the Month category to include photography and has named Chris A. Photography to the well-deserved position!  Chris Armold has done amazing work over the years and is well known in the midwest and beyond for his killer photos of legendary musicians such as Kerry King and Alice Cooper and for inspiring music photographers all over!   Jimmy Cummings of Buckeye Music Magazine had an opportunity to chat with Chris and get some more of the low down on his current projects!  Check out the full article here:
