BANGOR - The David Myles trio brought an enthusiastic audience to their feet several times during their premiere Bangor performance last Saturday evening in the ballroom at Bangor Arts Exchange.

Joining the Juno Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter onstage were longtime bandmates Alan Jeffries on lead guitar and Kyle Cunjak on standup bass. The trio offered an astonishing musical master class encompassing multiple genres, including pop, folk, rockabilly, bluegrass, soul and doo-wop.

“We’re pumped up for this album just like the old days!” drummer Garry Peterson said about the upcoming release of the first new album from The Guess Who since 1978. “The Future is What It Used to Be” is set to be released via Cleopatra Records on September 14 on CD, digital formats and limited edition red vinyl.

Comedian Ben Bailey says he is very happy to be back in the “Cash Cab” for a new season of shows.

The latest season of the Emmy-winning Discovery Channel game show consists of 10 new hour-long episodes. The season premiere was July 27 and the show will air at 7 p.m. on Fridays from now through the month of September.

“We’ve had so many good contestants and a lot of great games this season,” Bailey told me during a phone interview. “People are so enthusiastic when they get into the cab and it was a lot of fun to make these shows, I’m really looking forward to seeing them.”

BANGOR - People who take part in Bangor Humane Society’s upcoming 25th edition of “Paws on Parade” – the organization’s fun fundraising dog walk along the Bangor Waterfront, scheduled for Saturday, September 29 - will notice some changes and improvements to the event, according to Stacey Coventry, BHS director of development and public relations.

According to Jermaine Fowler (star of CBS’s “Superior Donuts”), the actor, writer and comedian could not be more pleased with the glowing reviews heaped upon director Boots Riley’s new workplace sci-fi comedy “Sorry to Bother You.”

David Myles and his band to perform in Bangor

Earlier this year, The Maine Edge featured a cover story about Juno Award-winning singer, songwriter and musician David Myles, bearing the headline: ‘He’s Hot. He’s Sexy. He’s Canadian.’

My variation on the title of an infamous late ‘70s Rolling Stone cover story about Doors lead singer Jim Morrison was designed to be an attention grabber. I had hoped that readers unfamiliar with Myles and his music would be intrigued enough to check out his latest release - “Real Love” – one of the most impressive records I’ve heard by any artist this year. And based on the volume of related comments and messages subsequently received from Maine Edge readers, you were and you did.

Meeting the ‘Gusterrhoids!’

Imagine the shock of discovering that you are not actually the person you, and everyone you know, thinks you are. And that your family is not really your family. Imagine how it would feel to finally know the truth after 50 years of living a lie.

It sounds like the plot for an M. Night Shyamalan psychological thriller, but for Paul Fronczak of Henderson, Nevada, it’s all too real. This page-turning story of self-discovery is laid out in “The Foundling: The True Story of a Kidnapping, a Family Secret, and My Search for the Real Me,” written by Fronczak with Alex Tresniowski.

For a dozen years, Punch Brothers have been delivering a singular brand of progressive-bluegrass-Americana beyond compare, both on record and in concert.

About the band’s fifth full-length recorded effort - they’ve also issued two Eps - “All Ashore” (out July 20 from Nonesuch), lead singer and mandolinist Chris Thile says “We were hoping we could create a thing that would be convincing as a complete thought – sort of a nine-movement or a nine-song thought…”
