Talk Of Teronus begins its 3rd season with musical guest David Bolton

There is a planet out there in the vast galaxy known as Teronus. Some of its inhabitants have found their way to earth, mingling amongst us, posing as humans, while they consider whether they like it enough to stay here, or if they will just take the things they like about Earth back to incorporate into the Teronus lifestyle.

Dr. Drave is rumored to be one of those beings (though no one has been able to prove it convincingly). Drave has become enamored with the music of earth and its performers. Disguised as a talk show host, he and his cohort "Wezo" (also from Meldavia in Teronus), seek out musicians and have conversations and jams with them as they study the creative talents of earthlings.

They are heading into their third season of internet shows and we at The Collabative are proud to to say we have intergalactic connections! Tune in to the quirky, funny, brilliantly talented stuff you will find in each episode. This season's kickoff was led by an interview with David Bolton. Check it out!

Talk of Teronus, The 1st Super Jam, & Our Video-Recording Ironies

We could have hardly imagined that video recording would become a significant part of what we do as part of The Collabative. Why? you may ask. Well... having now produced roughly 24 shows over the last 2 1/2 years, video recording them and getting results that we can be proud of, or even "settle for", remains a major challenge. It's just not something we've excelled at, where live events are concerned.

So, when we got the invite from Wezo and Drave to produce their show "The Talk Of Teronus" there was, as you might imagine,  a momentary hesitation. Even reluctance. What tipped us in favor of going ahead is not easily recalled, (though you can be sure it had something to do with the laid-back attitude of the show's hosts and the fact that they not only interview guests who are spectacular musicians, but these folks are nice, too!) Still, suffice it to say that the decision was a good one and the experience has been positive all the way around.

Season One is in the books and Season Two will officially begin September 1, 2014. In the meantime the guys - Wezo and Drave - brought some of their mega-talented musician friends together for what they are calling a "super jam" and we thought we'd let you have a look.

Who IS coming to play at our debut show?

There's been a bit of mystery - some say even controversy - over who, in fact, will be playing the piano at The Collabative's debut show. Our timing in booking one of the acts for the June 15 show at Mack and Mack Clothing couldn't have been better. It coincides with a new video series entitled "Remembering Dr. Drave" which asks local music lovers to share their recollections about the phenomenon of the Meldavian, Dr. Drave, inhabiting the body of musician Dave Fox. Who will show up at Saturday's show? Your guess is as good as ours! We're excited by either prospect.

This video excerpts part of an interview with John and Robin Davis, the proprietors of Mack and Mack, who reflect upon the first time they heard that Dr. Drave of Meldavia had inhabited the body of Dave Fox. 

Mack and Mack has long been known for creating stunning apparel for business, travel and occasions. We were elated when they agreed to provide the location for our first event, and you'll probably "get it" even more when you watch this piece. Not just because it's fun to shop in the boutique, and hang out with Robin and John, but also because of their love of great music. In fact, many residents of Greensboro have come to associate the store with music as well as fashion. This is largely because of the lineup of musicians who have played at Mack and Mack through the efforts of Triad Acoustic Stage. Now in its 6th year, Triad Acoustic Stage has hosted an outstanding range of performers. This trend continues with its two upcoming June 29th shows featuring the beloved Alice Gerrard, known as a tireless advocate of traditional music. If you're free that night, you won't want to miss this show. Order your tickets early as Triad Acoustic Stage shows routinely sell out in advance.

But before that? We hope you'll order your tickets to The Collabative's June 15, 2013 show with Channing and Quinn, followed by Dave Fox and The Draves of Meldavia.

We're excited about both sets of musicians. Sure, hailing from Nashville may not be quite as mysterious as originating on another planet. We decided not to hold a little thing like proximity against Channing and Quinn. Like we did with Dave Fox and The Draves, we completely fell in love with their sounds when we first met them.

Just for fun, a little video montage to tell you about our debut show at Mack and Mack clothing in downtown Greensboro.
