Johnny Carroll 50 years in Showbusiness
By Roger Ryan
This year Johnny Carroll celebrates fifty years in
showbusiness and is still going strong. He is organising a concert in the Blarney Castle
Hotel, Blarney, Co.Cork, on Wednesday 28th February to celebrate this historic
achievement. The show is in aid of Marymount Hospice, a cause very close to Johnny's
heart. The concert starts a 8 .00 p.m. and will feature Louise Morrissey, Trudi Lalor,
Michael English, PJ Murrihy and band Sea Breeze, and of course Johnny and his Golden
Trumpet. The show is being recorded for RTEs Nationwide TV Prog.
Known far and wide as the Man with the Golden Trumpet, he is one of the most highly
regarded entertainers in the country and one of the bestknown faces in Irish show
business. That's not surprising because Johnny Carroll has appeared on almost every
entertaiment show on RTE in recent years.
He is one of those entertainers who served his apprenticeship with well known showbands as
The Premier Aces and The Magic Band. It was his debut solo album, A Touch of Class, that
paved the way for this top class instrumentalist on the showbiz ladder. Since then he has
been reaping the rewards of his success in both the recording and performing fields. For
those who may not be aware, to date, his is the only one to take a trumpet solo right to
the top of the charts and he achieved that with the old favourite Oh! Mein Papa. Top
selling CDs are nothing new to Johnny Carroll,' A Touch of Class', 'Golden Moments',
'Legends', 'From the Heart', 'Be My Guest' featuring his old pal Jackie Healy Rea and
'Johnny Carroll and Friends', which was recorded with some of the top names in the
entertainment business that Johnny has met down through the years to celebrate 45 years in
the business, to mention but a few.
One of the highlights of his career was playing in Croke Park with the Artane Boys Band on
four separate All Ireland Final Days where he performed to a live audience of 70,000
people and was seen worldwide by viewers in the UK, Australia and America. He is a unique
artist who's brand of music gives pleasure to thousands of people, not only in this isle
but across the water and further afield.
Johnny and his band are still very much in demand for all types of social and corporate
work throughout Ireland, UK and the United States with the style of music that is a sure
recipe to turn every occasion into a party.
Johnny is currently in the recording studio working on a new album to celebrate his 50th
year in the business.

GOOD SONGS COME OUT OF THE AIR
Our friend and mentor, Bill Hall, once told me that somewhere around 95% of all number one
hits are love songs.
I think he was trying to get me off my unorthodox writing about birds in dirty underwear,
robbery and murder in a dark old city, a guy being buried, and seems to know whats
going on, a country singer falling in love with a fire hydrant, and songs about birth,
death, and beyond.
Maybe he was testing me. I loved Bill, but it didnt work.
I still write songs about odd subjects, but I write love songs too, when they come to me.
I think that good songs come out of the air, from space, or from God.
When this one started to come through, I knew it had to be written.
To hear the song, click
My ship of life sails stormy seas,
Tossed and turned with every breeze,
But I've found Safe Harbor in your love.
Let the winds of time turn bitter cold
On sails all torn and growing old
I've found Safe Harbor in your love.
Just breathe your love to me.
Let me feel it soft and warm,
And I can weather any storm
If my ship is lost on waves of foam
Just shine your light and guide me home.
I've found Safe Harbor in your love.

JOKERS WILD BANDS DEBUT RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jokers Wild Band The Jokers Wild Band has released
their debut original single "And the Rain." And the Rain can be
found on CDX #416 track 11, CDTEX, Mark Trails comp disc, and Marchs Hot Disk
"And The Rain," a hard driving country power ballad, was written by keyboardist
Buck Aaron Thomas and lead guitarist Gary Zaiontz. If you have ever had a major
fight with the one you love, then had to stay awake late into the morning hoping that they
would come home, all of which during a monstrous thunder storm, then this is your
song! says Buck.
Jokers Wild's release of the single "And the Rain" is the result of one complete
year of recording, fine tuning, mixing and mastering. "We like to refer to this
recording as the place where high quality Texas Music meets Nashville Recording
Standards, says Gary Zaiontz. Some have said that the song is actually a rock
power ballad cleverly disguised as a country tune. However it comes across to the
listener, few can argue with the hard-hitting emotional power of its lyrics. If you have
ever waited up late at night during a rainstorm for the one you love to call or come
through the door, this is your song! We took great care to construct it with amazing
sounding instrumentation and screaming seamless vocal harmonies. It just had to be as
perfect as we could get it!"
The Jokers Wild Band, a 6-piece country / rock band, was formed in the first quarter of
2002, and has since entertained thousands of audience members throughout the larger Texas
dance hall circuit. In 2006, Jokers Wild performed at the Toyota National Sales Convention
held at the Joe and Harry Freeman Coliseum, in San Antonio, Texas. Jokers Wild was honored
to be asked to perform among a distinguished prior head of state, as well as such
legendary nationally recognized talent and comedic celebrities.
"Gaining a strong presence in the international radio market, and attracting a well
funded indie or major label are both very daunting tasks, even for a well established
regional performance band like Jokers Wild, says Buck Thomas. With over two
full length albums of our own great original material ready to follow this release, and
the continued love and support of our families and loyal fans, I figured we stood as good,
if not a better chance of making the cut as anyone else!"

LEON SEITER HAS SEEN THE DEVIL HAVE HIS WAY!
Leon Seiter Leon Seiter has released Christian country single,
"I've Seen the Devil Have His Way," off of his In the Shadows of a Honky Tonk
