BANGOR 'The Nite Show with Danny Cashman' has picked up a New England Regional Emmy nomination. The show's theme song, 'Nite Time Tune' was written by Brian Catell of the Jump City Jazz Band. The band performs the song live in front of the show's studio audience every week to open the show. 'Nite Time Tune' was nominated in the category of 'Outstanding Musical Composition/Arrangement' for a New England Regional Emmy Award.

'I always liked how the song came out,' said Jump City Jazz Band music director Brian Catell. 'But, without the band performing it flawlessly week after week, it wouldn't sound as good as it does. Brian Nadeau plays the melody perfectly on trumpet, Bob Roman keeps the song moving on bass, and Mike Borja keeps the beat on drums along with me on keyboard, so all of the musicians deserve a lot of credit. It's a fun, energetic song that we think sets the tone for The Nite Show every week.'

The New England Regional Emmy Awards give television stations and programs the opportunity to be recognized for excellence in a variety of categories ranging from news and entertainment programming, to specific crafts such as editing, directing, producing, or hosting. Programs and stations in the television markets throughout New England are eligible to enter, including those in smaller markets like Presque Isle and Bangor, and larger markets such as Boston and Hartford, CT. This is the first nomination for 'The Nite Show with Danny Cashman.'

'The Nite Show with Danny Cashman' is a Maine-based late night talk show, modeled after the format made famous by programs hosted by Johnny Carson and David Letterman. The show is seen Saturday nights at 11:30 on WABI-TV 5 in Bangor, and Saturday nights at 10 on WPXT-TV 51, The CW, in Portland. This week's guests (4/28) are Alannah Shevenell, a 9-year-old girl from Hollis who recently had groundbreaking surgery to replace six organs in her body because of a growing tumor; and music from singer/songwriter Chris Ross.

'The Nite Show with Danny Cashman' is taped in front of a live studio audience at the Next Generation Theatre in Brewer and is produced by students and faculty from the New England School of Communications in Bangor.
