The Comet, 4579 Hamilton Ave, Cincinnati, OH
Angela Perley & The Howlin’ Moons formed in 2009 around singer-songwriter Angela Perley. The group consists of Chris Connor, Billy Zehnal, Steve Rupp, and Perley. Perley’s music is nostalgic and heavily influenced by old time country roots music and rock and roll. Perley’s song delivery is unique in the way she manipulates words and phrasings. Many songs contain themes of the moon, love, railroads, and death. Read more

Shiny and The Spoon has also been nominated for a 2012 Cincinnati Entertainment Award in the “Best Folk/Americana Group” category. Voting starts this Friday, 12/14. More info - http://www.cincygroove.com/?p=10765.
The “New Artist of the Year” nominees will perform at the first-ever CEA new music showcase at Bogart’s on Jan. 18. Audience votes at the event will help determine the winner of the category.
Shiny and the Spoon is proud and, ok, pretty damn excited to release the official music video for “Take On Me” (Ferris Wheel, 2011).
Just over three years ago, Shiny and the Spoon debuted itself to thousands of listeners, framed by a door jam in a tiny Clifton apartment. A video of their stripped-down, ukulele-tinkling rendition of A-Ha’s “Take On Me” immediately went “viral” and today boasts nearly 300,000 views.
Since then, Shiny and the Spoon has grown in members and regional renown. In the past year alone, SATS added bassist Pete Brown, Drummer Matt Frazer, and released its first full-length album: “Ferris Wheel” (Recorded and produced by John Curley @ Ultrasuede Studios). Read more
