Build the Scene & the Pennsylvania Rock Show’s coverage of Rock for Life 20

Build the Scene, Leechburg Lights, & Pixel Pro Display collaboration

As some of you may or may not know, Build the Scene shares a homebase with Leechburg Lights & Pixel Pro Displays, a phenomenal computer animated Christmas light display. He is willing to take submissions from our group of fantastic musicians for a chance to have their music featured in his display. He is looking for Tasteful, clean, non-hardcore, up beat traditional or orginal music that is family friendly.

The song must be a 192kbps 44.1khz mp3. Submission deadline is July 15, 2018. You can send him tracks at: leechburglights@gmail.com

If the song is good enough (quality production & marketable) Leechburg Lights will add it to their list of sequences for sale to other decorators across the world on their business site, Pixel Pro Displays. You have a chance for International exposure. If a client purchases the sequence, they must also purchase the audio directly from you.

 

The PA Rock Show Anniversary Event is almost here!!! – AKMusicScene.com

Thanksgiving is coming and there is a show this very weekend that embodies the love and giving of this holiday – the Pennsylvania Rock Show’s Anniversary Showcase!!! This year it’s being held at the Leechburgh Moose with a strong line up of Homicide Black, The Art of Burning Bridges, Divine Tragedy, Tilted Shadows and A Common Crown with doors open at 7:30. This one event ties into so much in the Pittsburgh music scene and more, so hold onto your hats!!

The PA Rock Show got it’s start September 14, 2004 and since then it has been a way to get the behind the scene information on so many bands in the area music scene. Bands have formed on the show, new music has played, acoustic versions of songs never heard performed that way before and it gives a “Sit down and chat a bit” feel for the fans of these artists to really get an idea of the more fun and personal side of the people they see on stage. On September 29, 2012 the owner and operator of the show, Bill Domiano, held an anniversary benefit in honor of a student having serious health problems. So much good came from that night. Not only were funds raised to help the student, it was decided that a yearly lineup would begin and proceeds would be donated to area charities, including Rock For Life – an organization that has multiple shows per year to raise money for those individuals in the area who have life threatening illness.

As he does with all of the work he does in the scene, Bill makes certain to bring the best area bands to the public in a fun way and fuel the scene in the ways he knows best. The positive response speaks for itself. Not just from the bands who are happy to be chosen for each years event but also from those who attend and those who benefit. This is an event that show the heart of the music scene and all who support it!! To see some of the past shows and music you might want to check out, go to https://www.parockshow.com/anniversary-shows/ and look over the information listed there as well as flyers from previous shows. The cost for admission is $5 for members/$10 for nonmembers and all proceeds go to the charities. Bring the family that’s come to visit and treat them to some of the area’s best music while nursing that turkey hangover. After all, you’ve probably reached your limit of rich food and holiday movies on television so this gives them something to go home and talk about that’s a whole lot better than whether or not the pumpkin pie was exactly like grandma used to make!!!

Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/672308246148410/

In 1995, Bill was taking an intro to computing class at Slippery Rock University. In that class, he was given an assignment to create a bio webpage using a template. He didn’t like how the website looked when he was finished and decided to learn how to design his own website. Shortly after that, he came across the unfinished website for the Band Hybrid. Hybrid included members of current day After the Fall and Slant 6. Bill became the webmaster for their website and started designing websites for a lot of the best bands in the area. During this time, he started to accrue local music. He dealt with bands like Doppler Affect, (kaj), sundog, and more!Tim Henry, former Hybrid guitarist and Bill started a group called TH Entertainment that worked with websites and musicians and helped to deeper tie Bill to the local music scene. Eventually Bill created a section of the Th Entertainment website, called TH Music Scene. This was the precursor to today’s AK Music Scene. During the TH Entertainment days, Tim and Bill designed a website for a local artist named Liz Hazelett. Liz’s nephew Tony Marinacci, owns and runs TM Entertainment. Tony was in need of some website help. Eventually, Bill brought up the local bands that he worked with, since Tony ran an Entertainment Company.This is where Utah Burgess (Shady Lady Studio & Grass Roots on the Rock Station 97.7) comes into the story. Bill met Utah through the Rock for Life concerts, (Matt and Steve from Hybrid). Utah is a staunch support of AK Music Scene and The Pennsylvania Rock Show. Utah paid for the original AK Music Scene domain on January 29, 2004.The next 2 people in the story found the AK Music Scene website and ran 2 unsigned music scene websites in Texarkana, TX. Chris and Holly Hawthorne, were a huge step in the evolution of AKMS and PARS. Chris ran indiebandradio.com. An online radio station that played nothing but local bands. Chris had some issues with his streaming computer and didn’t want to shut his station down. Bill offered to help and Chris explained how the streaming worked. Bill then called Brian Shaffer front man of the band (kaj) (currently the Travelers)and asked him if he had a mic that he could use. Brian showed up and he and Bill DJed on indiebandradio.com for the first time on September 14, 2004. This is when the Pennsylvania Rock Show was born. Tony Marinacci was instrumental in teaching Bill how to run a mixer which enabled the show to continue to progress into what is today!

I have a passion for discovering good new music before the rest of the world. One of the coolest ways I do that is by tuning into the PA Rock Show. I love listening to the interviews and hearing about who is rising through our scene. It’s amazing that this show has been at it for as long as it has and I hope that it continues to be a great resource indefinitely!

CHIP DIMONICK – CHIP DIMONICK, LONDONA – WWW.CHIPDIMONICK.COM

Long Time Divided has been rocking out in the western PA area, played shows in NYC and Cleveland, and opened for acts such as Soulfly, Fuel, Static-X and more, and over the course of our six plus years together, we have never received as much local support as we have from Bill and the Pennsylvania Rock Show. And it’s not just us but other local musicians/bands have been able to work with and approach the PA Rock Show about shows, promotions, Q&A, whatever, and they continually bend over backwards to help the local musicians in the area.In a time when music and the music scene can feel disposable and fake, the Pennsylvania Rock Show represents the best in music and supporting the local music scene. Thanks so much!

DJ BECKAGE – LONG TIME DIVIDED – WWW.LONGTIMEDIVIDED.COM

If you’re looking for a show with the best rock music and cutting edge acts, the PA Rock Show is it! Bill Domiano really promotes his show and the acts that appear. He has the best music guests and insightful interviews with top names. The PA Rock Show…ROCKS!

Michael Stover – MTS Management Group – www.mtsmanagementgroup.com

As you know we don’t usually support many groups or organizations because they usually have their own hidden agenda or are just using TME to further their own cause. We have found the PARS to be a very genuine program and the work that Bill Domiano and his wife Kelly do for the Alle-Kiski area bands is like nothing we have ever seen. TME will always pledge our support for you guys!!!””One of our biggest supporters has been the Pennsylvania Rock Show. Bill has helped in many ways including getting Tony to do his Rock EP. Which if you’ve read above – still has legs after three years and is still doing well. Bill also helped in partnering us with SickleEye who along with Daryl Strodes are our first artists to launch their EP’s as digital releases.

Some bands that have played the show have been offered and/or signed production agreements with local producers. Some bands have been finalist to play the 2006 Rolling Rock Town Fair, after being contacted by them and asked to supply a list of bands to check out. Some of the musicians on the show, have been used as session players. Other live guests have also hooked up with similar bands on the playlist to play shows together. On many occasions, major record labels and signed artists to local radio stations and syndicated radio DJs have been tuned into the show. (see the Famous Listener page and the About the Show page) It takes many small steps to travel long distances, if PARS is one of those small steps, then great.
