July 18th - Icecremn Merlin and Tukso LIVE at Terry's Sunday Showcase

 Join us on Sunday, July 18th beginning at 3pm SLT for Terry's Sunday Showcase, sponsored by the SL Enquirer! This week's featured artist is Icecremn Merlin, who returned to the SL music scene with new equipment, new sound, and some great covers you will love including Jackson Browne, Johnny Cash and Bruce Springsteen,  It's rock and roll live from his studio in Folsom CA. He also works in South Lake Tahoe as a live engineer, on a contract basis, for many headliners such as Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins, Dave Mason, Cheap Trick, and many others.

Ice’s father was in a band, so music was a big influence in his life. Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys....Willie Nelson....Hank Snow and Hank Williams.  His cousin currently plays lead guitar for George Strait. The first time he performed live was at age 18 playing guitar at a biker bar. He still remembers being afraid if he wasn’t any good he would get beat up. The bikers liked the band and the drummer got them a regular gig. Asked if that was his first band, he remembered being the keyboard player in a band at age 14. He admits that he was not very good at it though he does play a little to this day.  

Icecremn’s SL name was inspired by a song called "Icecream man" originally by John Brim. He really enjoyed the version rendered by Van Halen. His real-life band played a version of it at their shows. He said fondly that one of his bandmates, "smokes the lead lines" on his electric guitar. He calls it a "rockin" version. Pretty sweet, right?

A quick look at Ice's song list reveals his versatile range. His favorite covers are from Jackson Browne.  He sings Bad moon rising by Credence Clear Water Revival, Garden of Eden by Beaver Brown, Need you now by Lady Antebellum, even Margaretville by Jimmy Buffett. As you can see, he has a mix of upbeat, toe-tapping songs and slow, heartfelt ballads. His voice has a good timbre to it. This writer thinks that he sings ballads the best, especially country songs. His rendition of Lady Antebellum's  Need You Now was just brilliant; he made it his own, it was unique and just as tender as the original version.

Also debuting at Terry's this week, coming up at 4pm SLT Terry's Sunday Showcase continues with a LIVE performance from Tukso, a headliner in Second Life (14 years performance experience), and a performer with vast NYC stage experience (CBGB's, Kenny's Castaways, Knitting Factory, Red Lion, China Club, and hundreds more).  Seasoned multi-instrument musician (drums, keyboard, guitar, bass, percussion, harmonica, vocals ~ *ALL PLAYED LIVE as one-man band during concerts).
