Welcome to the Shane Fontayne thread!

Before we get to the good stuff, here's a little information about this site.  This is a message board dedicated to the band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD).  Neil Taylor is our gracious host, who runs this site with the assistance of voluntary donations.  If you would like to make a donation to this site, please CLICK HERE or use the button on the top of the screen.  If you intend to visit this thread often (and I hope you do), PLEASE BOOKMARK THE SITE.

Please take a look around, and you will see that we are a laid back, friendly bunch (most of the time, haha!).  We talk about other things besides OMD around here!  For instance:  Got something to complain about?  Get it off your chest in ROOM 101.  Wanna just shoot the breeze?  Post a message in THAT LONGEST THREAD.  In the mood for fun and games?  Check out the THREE WORD STORY.  I hope you will stop in and say Hi.

For those who don't know who Shane Fontayne is (like I did until recently), he is a guitarist and has quite an impressive career resume, having toured with and/or recorded with such artists as Chris Botti, Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart, Sting and Bruce Springsteen.  How he has avoided becoming a household name is a mystery to me!  The best place to find out about Shane Fontayne is at his website.  There you will find a comprehensive biography and links to various of Shane's musings about life as a musician.  The site is a little out of date, but is the most valuable source of information about Shane and his music.  There are also some very interesting links related to the release a few years ago of his album, What Nature Intended, which is available for purchase from his website or at CD Baby.  This thread is about the ancillary stuff.  I have no inside knowledge of anything he might be working on; I do this because I just . . . like the guy.  

Incidentally, Peter Barakan (Shane's elder brother) and Shane Barakan (Shane's son) each have their own threads.

The information of this thread is, for the most part, in chronological order according to the timeline of Shane's career.  But before that, here is some interesting miscellany to start with:

Video:  Shane on D'Addario strings

Interview:  Mescalina Interviste (January 12, 2004)

Interview:  Ferrante's Power Equipment (2005)

Before he was Shane Fontayne, Mick Barakan recorded and toured with Byzantium, made up of a group of older school friends.  Byzantium recorded three albums and made an appearance on the John Peele show on April 16, 1974.

Jerry Browning is a mega-music fan who runs The Witchseason Blog where he offers out of print vinyl for free download.  (HE ONLY OFFERS OUT OF PRINT MUSIC.)  Jerry has his own website and also a Myspace.

He has offered the three Byzantium albums for download:  

Blog Entry:  Byzantium Downloads - March 11, 2008 (scroll down a bit)

Download:  Byzantium

Download:  Seasons Changing

Download:  Live and Studio  (This is my favorite one.  I’m mightily impressed that Jerry has this original on vinyl because it was privately pressed by the band, and I believe copies are quite rare.)

Also, visit the Byzantium entry at ProgArchives and Byzantium’s Official Myspace.

JOHN WAITE – (1997-2004) Shane played on John’s albums Temple Bar, When You Were Mine, The Hard Way and Figure in a Landscape.

John Waite – When You Were Mine (1997)





Fan Narrative:  Online Fans Meet John Waite (July 17, 1999).  There is a nice picture of Shane's autograph.  FYI the autograph says "Shane F.B."  The "F" is (creatively) backwards; the "B" stands for Barakan.  


******************************************************************

Shane at Kulak’s Woodshed in 2002 – There’s Only Room for Me.  From Shane's album, What Nature Intended (click for samples).



About Kulak’s Woodshed:  This is a unique Los Angeles venue where emerging artists can play their music and have it webcast to anyone who wishes to tune in, as well as accommodating a small audience.  None of the artists is paid, and the operation is run with the help of voluntary donations.

************************************

Lyrics for You Know Better (Unconfirmed title)
KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic – June 11, 2003.  This song is only on the audio version.  (This, as well as other links, are on Shane’s Media page.  A couple of the links are dead, but the others are worth checking out.)  I apologize to Shane for any mistakes in this, or any other, transcription:

You know better
I know you know better
You know better
Than to leave me hanging out to dry

You know better
I know you know better
You know better
That I’m hurting somewhere down inside

You disappear
With you my mind
I lose all sense of me and I can’t find
A single thread to sew the ties that bind me up
Tie me down
This ship runs aground

You know better
I know you know better
You know better
Than to leave me hanging out to dry


You know better
I know you know better
You know better
That I’m hurting somewhere down inside

I’m crashing hard like broken glass
I’m tearing off the scars that heal the past
I’m tasting something flowing thick and fresh
It’s warm but it seems
It’s all just a dream

O say can you see by the dawn’s early light
O say can you see by the dawn’s early light

Yeah it’s all down to me
No one else sets me free

You know better
I know you know better
You know better
Than to leave me hanging out to dry

You know better
I know you know better
You know better
That I’m hurting somewhere down inside

MARC COHN (1997 to present).  (FYI:  Marc is best known for his 1991 hit, Walking in Memphis.)  Warning:  I am about to gush.  IMHO Marc Cohn and Shane Fontayne are the perfect musical pair (besides ANOTHER musical pair, haha):  Marc’s hard-driving, heartfelt, savory style is tempered (enhanced, maybe?) by Shane’s understated elegance.  Better still, they are also friends.  Shane has been touring with Marc since 1997 and played on Marc’s 2007 release, Join the Parade (JTP).  I have had the privilege of seeing them twice during the Join the Parade Tour, and I would more than gladly do so again!

Here’s  a little history about JTP.  Before JTP, Marc’s last official album release had been Burning the Daze (1998).  Although Marc had been touring regularly over the years, when it came to new material, he was having rather a dry spell.  This came to a shocking end in August of 2005, when the band were returning to their hotel after a show in Denver, Colorado.  They were confronted by an armed man who, in an attempt to carjack them, shot into the vehicle, striking Marc in the head.  Miraculously, the bullet lodged in a bit of soft tissue between his eye and his skull, and surgeons were able to remove it.  Marc never lost consciousness.  Click here for Shane’s retrospective of the day of the shooting.  While Marc recovered, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.  The scenes of destruction, coupled with his recovery from his own traumatic ordeal, seemed to open the floodgates for his songwriting.  As he stated in this interview:

“I got home a couple of days after being shot,” said Cohn. “And then Hurricane Katrina hit a few weeks later. I'm in the middle of my own crisis, and now I'm watching all these haunting images on television of thousands of people suffering through a far more horrific event. And then something I never could have predicted happened. It was like my song-writing receiver got flipped into the on position. Everywhere I turned, in conversations I overheard, even in get-well emails I was receiving, song ideas started coming. For several weeks, I'd be working on 2-3 songs simultaneously. And these songs weren't polite about their sudden presence either; they insisted on being written.”

So without further ado, here are some clips from the Join the Parade Tour:

Marc Cohn videos from Hopper’s Music:


"One Safe Place" Highline Ballroom NYC Nov '07






"29 Ways" Highline Ballroom NYC Nov '07






"The Calling" Highline Ballroom NYC Nov '07

Shane at Kulak’s Woodshed.  Shane performed and hosted the evening, presenting several other artists, including his son, Shane, on March 21, 2008:

The Lightning and the Thunder



I stayed awake all night to see you
Then you walked into my dreams
I don’t know who you are
But I’ve a clue
There’s something familiar that
Makes me wonder
It’s in the lightning and the thunder

I can’t eat
I can’t sleep
I’m still paralyzed
And I can’t move my feet

Incinerate these mind vacations
I’m gazing in a crystal ball
I watch the time fly by
I’m watching with a sigh
And then I wave bye-bye
Forevermore
Times in this life when
There’s something bigger comes in
It’s only right then
You start to figure what isn’t
Then what might have been
But there’s no room for regret
And the feeling
Is that
You can’t eat
You can’t sleep
You’re still paralyzed and somehow incomplete


Do do do do do do do . . .
(repeat 3-4x)

A semi-waking dream
Where things ain’t what they seem
That’s about above below
And all things in between
If time will set us free
To be or not to be

I stayed awake all night to see you
I stayed awake all night
I stayed awake all night to see you
Then you walked into my dreams
I don’t know who you are
But I’ve a clue
There’s something familiar that
Makes me wonder
It’s in the lightning and the thunder
It’s in the lightning and the thunder




Stay High (unconfirmed title)



You gotta get up in the morning
Get yourself down to the table
It’s time to make good on the promises
You been making to yourself
Seize the beauty in the new day
Like you never tasted nothing else

You don’t know whatever the future’s gonna bring you
Nothing that’s out of this moment really matters anyway
Hear the sermon in the sunshine
Heed the prayer inside the rain

Stay high
Stay high
Stay high

You son-of-a-gun you plan to shoot this mother down
Well you don’t wanna put your mind anyplace that you don’t wanna see
Que será será you say
What will be will be will be

Stay high
Stay high
Stay high

The simple suppositions fall
The paint is peeling from the walls
The justice in these hallowed halls
Not serving us anymore
You believed in a hometown dream
Parades and [prompted] limousines
Well homecoming just ain’t what it used to be
Ain’t what it used to be

An ancient fallen civilization
Make it all the more important to be truthful to your kin
So come on do yourself a favor
You can do without but not within

Stay high
Come on brother
Stay high
Stay high

Come on brother
Come on sister
Stay high
Stay high
Stay high




Marlene





Raised on ‘45s



I’m lost in earth
And I’m lost in space
Dazed and confused
About the human race
The billboard of my life reads not for sale
Or is that a vacant lot
With no paper trail?

I woke up this morning
Trouble was on my mind
To the sound of you sleeping
And the rain falling through the blinds
Another day another dollar
Or is it just another day?
Turn up the radio
Make me wanna holler
Time to kill
Why would I kill it anyway?

I may be a lover
I may be a fool
I may want nothing better than to quit school
I may be woman
I may be man
Where the past has no future and the present is in my hands
Where the past has no future and the present is in my hands

I was raised on 45’s
The kind with the hole in the middle and a flipside
Not the cold and steely kind
I always loved to listen to those b-sides

Now when life tells you that you pass or fail
When impatience and danger push you to the third rail
Til you’re told back away quietly with your hands in the air
Hey man you lose; Simon didn’t say to; no one said life is fair

Another day another dollar
Or is it just another day?
Turn up the radio
Make me wanna holler
Turn up the radio
Make me wanna holler
Nothing better listening to Marvin Gaye

I want my children
I want my home
I want my woman
I want my freedom
I pay the piper
Of him I ask
That the past have no future and present be in my hands

Do you seek honor?
Do you seek fame?
Do you make a deal with the Devil and speak in his name?

One may have knowledge
And still not understand
May the past have no future and the present be in my hands
May the past have no future and the present be in my hands

May the past have no future and the present . . .
May the past have no future and the present be in my hands




Soft Like Down



Love
Undone
Opened up
Two
Like one
Fill my cup

Here she comes
Soft like down
And I pray
Every day
She will stay
Close to me

How my heart races
When she comes near me
Sweeps me up into her love’s embrace
With a kiss

A fool
May be
Blind to see
But all and everything
Meant to be

She’s heaven
Sent to me
And I pray
Every day
She will stay
Close to me

How my heart races
When she comes near me
Sweeps me up into her love’s embrace
I am helpless to resist
The passion in her touch
The warmth of her
The warmth in her lips
As I slept in her love’s embrace
As I slept in her love’s embrace

Her heavenly
Caress
With a kiss


Love
Undone
Two like one

Here she comes
Here she comes
Soft like down

Love undone
Opened up
Two
Like one
Fill my cup

Here she comes
Soft like down
And I pray
Every day
She will stay
Close to me

How my heart races
When she comes near me
Sweeps me up into her love’s embrace
With a kiss

A fool
May be
Blind to see
But all and everything
Meant to be

She’s heaven
Sent to me
And I pray
Every day
She will stay
Close to me

How my heart races
When she comes near me
Sweeps me up into her love’s embrace
I am helpless to resist
The passion in her touch
The warmth of her
The warmth in her lips
As I slept in her love’s embrace
As I slept in her love’s embrace

Her heavenly
Caress
With a kiss

Love
Undone
Two like one

Here she comes
Here she comes
Soft like down

MARC COHN – Join the Parade summer tour (2008).  Marc Cohn, Shane Fontayne, Joe Bonadio (drums), Jon Ossman (bass).  Josh Dodes (the PaulB lookey-likey) and Amy Correia (backing vocals/opening act) did not join this leg of the tour.  

Summer festivities kicked off at Appel Farm in New Jersey on June 7, 2008.  Temperatures were recorded at over 100°.  You will see that three fans were pointed at the “main performer,” and none (that I could see) on the supporting band!  Life is so unfair . . .

************************

On June 12, 2008, Marc performed a special webcast concert at DeepRockdrive, sort of a Kulak’s Woodshed on steroids.  These are free concerts for anyone who would like to view a concert (registration required).  A viewer has the option of several camera angles at which to view the show.  Also, Marc had a set list of songs he was prepared to play.  From this list, the viewing audience voted on what he should perform next.  The photos show the wall of video screens which displayed “shout outs” to Marc and the band.  Viewers could choose to display either personal messages, or choose from a list of icons which included clapping hands, a lighter, lips, a heart or a rose.  Reports (I was unable to attend) say there were “attendees” from around the globe, such as Canada, the Philippines, Japan, New Zealand, France and 34 different states in the U.S.

Highlights will/are available via iTunes Store.

Marc Cohn says thanks for joining the fun at DeepRockDrive!

Review of Marc Cohn concert on June 15, 2008 at the Lobero Theater in Santa Barbara

Setlist:

Live Out the String
Girl of Mysterious Sorrow
The Calling
Rest for the Weary
29 Ways
Listening to Levon
Old Soldier*
Walking in Memphis
Miles Away

Encore 1:
Silver Thunderbird
Dance Back from the Grave*
Let Me Be Your Witness

Encore 2
True Companion*
My Sanctuary*
One Safe Place*

* REQUESTS which Marc accommodated.

Having no show the previous day, and none the next, Marc and the band put the pedal to the metal and never looked back!  Marc seems to have gotten a charge out of the DeepRockDrive “request” format because it seems like he had no set list.  Several times he asked Shane what to play next.  Very exciting for the band and the audience!  

Marc took a minute to say how honored he is to have been playing with Shane for nearly ten years and cited Shane’s experience with Lone Justice, Sting and Bruce.

“Bruce who?”  Shane queried into the microphone.

“Bruce Henschel!” retorted Marc teasingly.

One of my favorite moments was when Marc and Shane played their acoustic guitars together on The Calling.  Their intensity increased to a crescendo – this was met with deafening applause!  Shane was really on fire that night, as were Joe and Jon.  They were in great spirits!  Shane was quite the musical multitasker, taking on the responsibilities for guitar, harmonica and backing vocals – all of which he discharged with skill, grace and gusto (not to mention coordination).  And all while spinning a stack of plates on his head.  OK I’m kidding about that last part, but you get the gist.

Marc (married to newscaster Elizabeth Vargas) paid a touching tribute to Tim Russert (who recently died of a heart attack), who he admired as a television journalist and found him equally intelligent and amiable in person.

When they came back out for the first encore, Marc was peppered with shout-out requests.  He actually stood there for a few moments and waved his arms in invitation for more!  

Four of the six encore songs were requests, including mine for My Sanctuary, which I didn’t manage to blurt out until the second encore, right before he played True Companion.  

Once he finished, Marc said, “I heard a request from the front row for one of the songs on the new album.  We haven’t played this one in awhile, except in rehearsals!  We’re going to try it now.  At least someone in the front row will be really happy.”  It was a truly moving performance that nearly brought tears to my eyes.  At the end as he bowed, I mouthed a “Thank you” to him.  Looking straight at me he said, “Thank you.”  What a kind and gracious performer he is.  I will always treasure that moment.]

The seats are really close to the stage at the Lobero.  (There is barely walking room between the seats and the stage, if someone is sitting down.)  At the end, Marc came to the very front to take a few bows, and I was tempted to pat him on the head – he seemed that close.  There seems to have been a good-sized crowd there – and every enthusiastic.  The place looked nearly sold out.

Marc announced more than once that he would be available to sign autographs after the show.  Unfortunately, I could not stay for the meet and greet.  

What a truly special evening it was – intense, emotionally charged, energetic – and I loved every minute of it!  I was only able to catch this one show on this leg of the tour, and I’m grateful that this was it.

Thank you Marc, Shane, Jon and Joe.

(Shane appears on the PBS special, Chris Botti:  Live DVD.)

Apologies - I got this confused with Chris Botti & Friends - Night Sessios (Live in Concert) (2002).  Shane MAY appear on both; I hope a more knowledgeable person will come along and clarify this.  But hey, why not get some great music AND support public television!

Marc Cohn, Shane Fontayne, Joe Bonadio, Jon Ossman, and an unknown accordion player (!) at the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles on June 17, 2008.  Not full songs, but I'll take what I can get!  And that MUST be Shane's favorite shirt.  This is the third time this leg of the tour I've seen him wearing it.  Maybe he liked the style so much he owns more than one!  

Listening to Levon

OOps, missed one from the Hotel Cafe:

Walking in Memphis (Part 1)  (The first one is actually Part 2!)



Also, I noted that Jon Ossman IS singing backup, so apologies to Jon if he was also doing so at the Lobero and I just didn't hear him.

Quoted from DreamRedux
On June 12, 2008, Marc performed a special webcast concert at DeepRockdrive, sort of a Kulak’s Woodshed on steroids.  These are free concerts for anyone who would like to view a concert (registration required).  A viewer has the option of several camera angles at which to view the show.  Also, Marc had a set list of songs he was prepared to play.  From this list, the viewing audience voted on what he should perform next.  The photos show the wall of video screens which displayed “shout outs” to Marc and the band.  Viewers could choose to display either personal messages, or choose from a list of icons which included clapping hands, a lighter, lips, a heart or a rose.  Reports (I was unable to attend) say there were “attendees” from around the globe, such as Canada, the Philippines, Japan, New Zealand, France and 34 different states in the U.S.

So, duh, of course I should credit the source of this information:  It is the excellent, detailed, and very enthusiastic account of HEATHER (CLICK TO READ HER BLOG ENTRY), which includes a set list and blow-by-blow details of the concert.  Thanks Heather!

Here are a couple of youtubes from the fall/winter leg of the tour.

Listening to Levon (Charlotte, North Carolina 1/17/08).  Credited to the talented and amazing "MAEC COHN."  Very nice intro by Marc.  (You can't see Shane, but you can hear him.)  




29 Ways, etc. (San Francisco, California, 12/4/07).  Shane jams with Bonnie Raitt!  One of my favorite clips.  CLICK HERE to see some stills from this show.

Summer festivities kicked off at Appel Farm in New Jersey on June 7, 2008.  Temperatures were recorded at over 100°.  You will see that three fans were pointed at the “main performer,” and none (that I could see) on the supporting band!  Life is so unfair . . .

In all fairness to Appel Farm personnel, I spotted a fan on Shane's corner of the stage - visible in the "Rest for the Weary" video.  

And as Marc says in his latest Road Journal #8:

Quoted Text
I hope July is treating you well and that you’re listening to your local weathermen and women, who no doubt have told you to stay hydrated and to wear loose fitting clothes with light colors. Please listen to them; they’re pros and they know what they’re talking about. Summer is nothing to kid around about.

Marc Cohn's at it again . . .  

Miles Away - Boulder, Colorado, 7/9/08 - A little sample of Shane's harmonica skills.  The sound is excellent, and for all of you out there with 20/20 vision, there's the added benefit of giving you the experience of what it's like to be nearsighted.

On Friday, June 11, 2008, Marc and Shane played at the Botanic Gardens in Denver, Colorado.  It was the first time they had done so since the shooting that took place nearly three years ago, after a show at that same venue.  (The other two band members who played with them on June 11, Joe Bonadio and Jon Ossman, were not with them in 2005.)

Very cool shot of Marc and Shane taken on July 16, 2008 at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington.  Marc opened for Aimee Mann.  I would have thought it would be the other way around, but I can't argue with an eyewitness account.

Shane reported, in part, in his newsletter of May 2006:

Quoted Text
It was recently brought to my attention, thank you Sophia, that a song I had written some years ago with my dear friend Randy Vanwarmer called Wives Don’t Like Old Girlfriends had been covered by an Australian husband and wife team, Camille Te Nahu and Stuie French. It turns out that they had a number one Country hit in their homeland and won awards also for their recording. You can hear a clip here – track 3 from the CD Not Without You.

Randy and I first had this song covered by Suzy Bogguss, a very well-respected female Country artist, on a duet album she recorded with Chet Atkins in 1994 called Simpatico. You can view the album cover in the 1994 area of my discography. What a thrill to have Chet Atkins play on a song of mine.

The version Camille and Stuie recorded is similar to the arrangement that Suzy and Chet used, and is also quite lovely - Camille with a lovely vocal and Stuie’s guitar playing, a veritable homage to Les Paul, yet sounding full of fire and individuality.


I couldn’t find video for the Suzy Bogguss version, but here’s Camille Te Nahu and Stuie French’s version:

Wives Don’t Like Old Girlfriends




Australian country music.  Who knew??

Going back to 2005 and Sting's Broken Music Tour (Josh Freese, Dominic Miller and Shane Fontayne).  Shane recounts in his blog entry of April 10, 2005:

Quoted Text
Dominic and I joined Sting at Boise State University yesterday afternoon, where he gave a master class to students majoring in musical composition.

(Josh would have joined us, but he had traveled home and back on our day off.)

There were about twenty students present and Sting talked about his writing process, his influences and inspiration, and we played several songs - Dom and me on acoustic guitars and Sting playing bass. The class lasted for an hour.

When Sting first called me about the tour, this was one of the first things he mentioned - that the thrust of the tour was to play colleges, but also to give these classes and share his/our experiences with the students. Even at that juncture, the intent was that we would hopefully participate as a band.

This was just the tip of the iceberg!  

Click here for Netwaite.com's archive of photos from John Waite's When You Were Mine (WYWM) tour, with particular emphasis on dates from 1997 through July 19, 1999.  Shane was sporting some colorful attire in Providence, RI on 11/29/97, and the shot of him in Las Vegas on 4/24/99 documents his earlier experiment with the short 'do that he adopted (permanently?) in 2003.

Here is the link to photos where John Waite meets fans.  Look for links within the narratives for some cool surprises!  Shane posed with John and fans for a few delightful shots here and there.

Photos from recent leg of Marc's tour.  Marc and the band played NINE shows in TEN days - a marathon!  But I understand everything went fabulously, despite having lost Joe the drummer for at least one of the shows.  These photos were taken by Tom their tour manager, who is also a musician and sound technician among his other many talents.

09/22/2008 - Videos from Marc and band's benefit performance at Tipitina's in New Orleans for the Tipitina's Foundation, which supports the New Orleans musical community.  There was also a webcast for this performance, but my understanding is that the quality of these audience recordings are MUCH better than the webcast.

Dance Back from the Grave




Listening to Levon




Walking in Memphis




My Sanctuary (audio only)  (One of my FAVORITE Marc tunes, and I really love the guitar riff on this one.)





Silver Thunderbird (audio only)

Video for the Johnny Average Band's song Public Image (1980). Shane writes in his biography:

Quoted Text
A new group of English guys had just arrived in Woodstock. One was named Mick Hodgkinson who was putting together a 1950s-type rock and roll band called Johnny Average and the Falcons. . . . . One of the quirks of being a Falcon was that everyone had to assume an alter ego. . . . Initially, Mick Barakan became Shane Mundane. "I felt Mundane was too mundane," he says laughing, "so I switched it to Fontayne. I was in about four or five bands at the time and also doing quite a bit of recording at Bearsville Studios. And from that point on, I became known as Shane Fontayne," he explains.


So, without further ado,

For the second time, Shane has been invited to play at The Kennedy Center Honors.   The show will be taped on December 7, 2008.

As it has for the past three decades, the Honors will air on the CBS network on December 30, 2008 at 9:00pm PST/EST as a two-hour special.

This year’s honorees are  Morgan Freeman, George Jones, Barbra Streisand, Twyla Tharp, and Pete Townshend & Roger Daltrey.

About The Kennedy Center Honors:

Quoted Text
The Honors recipients recognized for their lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts— whether in dance, music, theater, opera, motion pictures or television—are selected by the Center's Board of Trustees. The primary criterion in the selection process is excellence. The Honors are not designated by art form or category of artistic achievement; the selection process, over the years, has produced balance among the various arts and artistic disciplines.

Past Honors recipients, as well as Members of the Kennedy Center's national artists committee, made recommendations of possible 2008 Honorees. Artists making recommendations included: Alan Alda, Dan Aykroyd, Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Glenn Close, Joel Coen, Christine Ebersole, Renée Fleming, Savion Glover, Thomas Hampson, Herbie Hancock, Paloma Herrera, Hugh Jackman, Billy Joel, Evgeny Kissin, Patti LuPone, Rob Marshall, Reba McEntire, Terrence McNally, Mark Morris, Mark O'Connor, Bernadette Peters, Frederica von Stade, Forest Whitaker, Damian Woetzel, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Previous Kennedy Center Honorees, including Carol Burnett, Clint Eastwood, Elton John, James Levine, and Sidney Poitier, also made nominations.

Michael M. Kaiser, President of the Center, expressed the national cultural center's gratitude to the many individuals involved in the success of the Honors program. "In addition to recognizing our most treasured artists, the Kennedy Center Honors also supports many of our performing arts initiatives, education and public service programming, and national outreach efforts."

^ Oops!  Correction:  Shane has NOT participated in the Honors before.  He's worked with the musical director before, Rob Mathes, but that was for a different event:  2003 MusiCares honoring Bono.

Kennedy Center Honors 2008 - Great broadcast - if a little too heavily edited!  According to Shane's newsletter, Bettye LaVette had to beg the editors to leave in Shane's solo, and she appears to have been successful.  Here is Bettye's fine rendition of Love Reign O'er Me:





Dave Grohl and Joss Stone on Who Are You and My Generation (respectively).  Shane did a Townshend-style windmill just as Dave Grohl did a leap - they should have shown them both!




Rob Thomas - Baba O'Riley

More from Lone Justice days - but seriously, someone's going to have to explain the huge inflated hamburger, fries and sunnyside up eggs to me!

And a performance *sans* the fast food menu.

Among other nifty activities (like songwriting camp in Wyoming the first half of April) that Shane is involved with, he has (or had) the following appearances:

* Paula Cole at the Smothers Theater at Pepperdine University in Malibu March 25 for Chick Singer Night.  

Click here for a teeny-weeny photo of Paula Cole, Shane and Ben Wittman.

* Marc Cohn over the summer.

*Songwriters Hall of Fame induction festivities on June 18 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York, having once again been invited by Rob Mathes.  The honorees are Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati; David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash; Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora; Roger Cook & Roger Greenaway; Galt MacDermot, James Rado and Gerome Ragni; and Stephen Schwartz.
