Early this spring, The Rolling Stones made headlines the world over when it did something that no band has ever done.  The band became the first rock act to ever perform a free, live show in the city of Havana.  Now this fall audiences will be able to experience that landmark concert for themselves when Eagle Rock Entertainment releases Havana Moon: The Rolling Stones Live in Cuba.

The new Rolling Stones live recording, captured by award-winning film director Paul Dugdale, will be released in stores and online on Friday, November 11th.

One million people turned out for the concert, which was held the very same week that President Obama became the first United States President to visit Cuba in 88 years.  His visit was touted by countless news agencies around the world as the “warm up act” for The Rolling Stones.

When the band took the stage, front man Mick Jagger addressed the crowd quoting fellow Bob Dylan as he said, “Finally the times are changing. Cuba, we are so happy to be here.  The concert’s extensive set list featured many of the band’s biggest hits including: ‘Brown Sugar,’ ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash,’ ‘It’s Only Rock N’ Roll,’ ‘Paint It Black,’ ‘Honky Tonk Women,’ ‘Start Me Up,’ and ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want,’ and ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction),’ among many other songs.  The complete track listing for the concert is noted below.

The band’s performance was hailed by the audience with at least one fan saying, “Wow, never ever did I think we would see this happen.  Tonight has been a dream come true for me.”

That statement was echoed by another fan who said, “Simply fantastic – this is a moment I have been dreaming about for a really long time.  I have just witnessed the most important concert in Cuba because this is The Rolling Stones.”

Delta Rae To Perform at Democratic National Convention

Durham, North Carolina’s own Delta Rae has announced that it has been selected to perform at the Democratic national Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina next Thursday, September 6th.  The convention will be at Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium.  Delta Rae will join music icon James Taylor as one of the convention’s performing acts before President Obama’s nomination acceptance speech.  DNC CEO Steve Kerrigan spoke on Delta Rae being added to the convention’s performer roster.  “Highlighting such amazing talent from North Carolina as part of the entertainment at the convention’s closing event is just one way that convention organizers are working to bring the flavor of North Carolina to all Americans,” he said.  He added, “Whether you’re one of the tens of thousands who received community credentials to attend this historic event in person, or tuning in remotely, you will have a taste of the wonderful region that is home to this year’s convention.”

Delta Rae member Ian Holljes shared his thoughts on being selected as part of the convention and on President Obama’s accomplishments during his first term in office.  He said, “Watching Barack Obama win election to the presidency in 2008 was one of the most affirming and exciting moments of my life as an American.  I am so thrilled to think what he can accomplish in a second term and I couldn’t be more humbled that Delta Rae’ music will be a part of ushering in that great hope.”  He expressed his support for Obama, saying, “We seem to be at a tipping point for so many important movements.  Marriage equality, women’s rights, and the protection of the middle class among them – and I believe President Obama’s continued leadership is essential to landing on the right side of history on these issues.”

Holljes’ brother–and fellow Delta Rae band member—Eric noted the importance of the youth vote in this year’s election.  He said, “There are currently so many issues being discussed and decisions being made in Washington that are going to drastically affect me and my generation.  I truly hope, as young people, we stand up in this election and let our collective voice be heard.” 

One of the songs on the band’s debut album, “Carry The Fire”, tackles the issue of North Carolina’s gay marriage ban.  ‘Chain on Love’ was a response to Prop 8.  Audiences can check out the video for ‘Chain on Love’ online at http://youtu.be/qnd9ylWsfRA.  Audiences can also check out the video for the album’s lead single, ‘Bottom Of The River’ online at http://youtu.be/bimam2j2gEg.  And to check out a medley of the band’s songs on Warner Sound go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ_JqRcU9YA.
