Mack Doss Sr., What A Wonderful Man!


I got a chance to sit down one on one with Mack Doss Sr. last week.  He wanted to share some really cool stuff about his life, his music, family and friends.  As many of you know, Mack is going through a rather difficult time in his life.  On Sunday, June 4th from 12-5pm there will be a benefit show for Mack at the Swordfish Grill and Tiki in Cortez, FL.

Twinkle Rock Soul Radio


Local Sarasota musician Twinkle and her band rocked the standing room crowd at Ace’s on Friday night! Bringing a mixture of cover tunes and original written music, Twinkle offers something for everyone. Her multi range vocal ability allows for a great variety of cover tunes. Channeling Zeppelin and as I heard a fan say to her during a break “You make Robert Plant proud!” From “The Ocean” to “Whole Lotta Love” Zep fans were lovin’ it. She and brother bassist Tony LeClerc, take occasional turns on vocals with Stones and Allman Brothers classics tunes.

I just heard this amazing story by Benjamin Holmes on NPR’s Snap Judgement.  To escape gang violence and a false, trumped up charge, he actually faked his own death and lived on the run for ten years, using his brother’s name until his wife unsuccessfully shot him for money. In the hospital he used his own name for the first time in a decade.  Tired of running, he turned himself in to the FBI with a New York Times reporter and is now free and happy while his story helped the Feds in their efforts to clean up his city. His quote, “Her shooting me is actually what freed me”, struck a chord with me and I had to ask the question of you dear reader; What terrible event or even multiple events have shifted your perspective and have actually been a gift? One that comes to mind for me was my DUI.
