Don’t be a clown, Mr. Brown ! We’ve all said it, perhaps we’ve all done it, but right now it’s terribly out of fashion. For some reason, clowns have taken a bad rap the last little while. From public displays of weirdness, to high school pranks, these made up messengers of merriment and more have become the pariahs of the season. Doc and the MadMan take a look at the different clowns who have entertained us throughout generations. Whether they were bringers of truth, silly seeming circus shriners or any of a number of cartoon figures, clowns have traditionally been our friends. DJMM asks the question “why the bad press of late? ! We talk a little about the clowns running for office and the silliness sent by Kimmel to show us how funny it all can be, if a little slower. This and more on Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan, for October 13, 2016. Peace-In, Pariah Pals ! = DJMM.
Introducing, The Kingdom, The Band. Do they play Christian rock? Sure they do. Just ask ’em.
But, as many southern rockers would say, that ain’t all.
Nope, not even close.
To see these young people is to witness the invention of an entirely new flavor of rock and roll. It’s original, genre-jumping, sandal stomping, southern style jams.
Hold on a minute. We’re getting ahead of ourselves. First, close your mind’s eye and picture not just another rock band, but the most gifted group of young people you’ve ever met. Imagine now their music, a dynamic, untraveled approach for not just rock, but the soul of all traditional rock, with an out-of-the-box spiritual flair.
You’ve never heard this before. Huh-uh… nothing even close.
Now, open your eyes… and your ears !
In this June 23, 2016 appearance, wholesome, fun loving music phenoms The Kingdom blow Dr. Jeffrey and the MadMan away with unbelievable vocals, harmony, instrumentals and musical arrangements tight and powerful enough to make a composer blush ! WOW! Alternating between panting through sweltering Oklahoma heat and feeling goosebumps over the original music… it’s enough to catch musical pneumonia !
Their music almost certainly defies category and description, but suffice it to say, that if you listen to The Kingdom on DJMM, you’ll witness the emergence of what is almost certainly the greatest new genre-bending band of the era.
They’re self-styled country pop / Christian rock / soul / southern rock and so much more rolled into one… or six, made into one. The sound is fresh, unique, honest. The camaraderie they share is as organic as the friendship that brought them together.
OH, and did we mention that they dropped a previously unreleased single with US last night?! They hit us with a hot new track of their original dit, Flesh and Bone. How cool is THAT?
