After a 34-year hiatus, Dr. Hayward Derrick Horton had decided to return to his first love, music. A Professor of Sociology at the State University of New York at Albany, Dr. Horton is a talented singer-songwriter-producer who had performed in singing groups throughout his high school and college years in his hometown of Norfolk, VA. Now he is realizing his dream of building a Motown-styled multi-media company: HDH Entertainment. The foundation of that company is his pop and r&b band: Derrick Horton and the Jay Street Band. Along with himself (Derrick) on lead vocals the band also features Phil Auclaire (drums), Chris Duffy (bass), Greg Henderson (guitar), Sabrina Mason (keyboards, background vocals) and Jackie Guzzetta (background vocals). Derrick Horton and the Jay Street Band brings its pop/r&b flavored "Motown and More" show to the Linda in Albany, NY on Saturday April 11th. The show will also debut the band's first original single, "Come Back Home," on the HDH-E label. Because of its commitment to community and charitable giving, Dr. Horton's group is now the official house band of Ronald McDonald House of Albany.

Half a world apart, a five-star chef, a retired school teacher and a sixth-grade master gardener fight for a seemingly lost cause -- until they discover their impact may reach further than their actions.

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 - LIVE: Guy Davis @ WAMC-FM’s The Linda, 1/17/14

Guy Davis prefaced his lightning-fast opening number at The Linda by saying, "I've stolen so much, this song doesn't even have a title!" And even if he hadn't name-checked Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell after it was all over, the SRO crowd could easily hear about 100 years of the blues coursing through Davis' acoustic 12-string guitar, right down to the off-time beat that recalled Robert Johnson's original version of "Crossroads."
