Silent Season with Jiggy Jaguar 10272021

Published

on

By

It’s no secret that the world of rock music has gone through some big changes, and
Boston, being one of the greatest hubs of hard rock & metal, was hit as hard as any.
SILENT SEASON came together during this time, selecting a name that reflects the end
of favorite venues, radio stations and record stores. “We selected a band name which
has depth to it, an emotional play.” says drummer Dave Pappalardo. “Silent Season is
starting a movement – holding the torch for bands which influenced us, with a sound
uniquely ours.”
Citing influences ranging from Breaking Benjamin, Sevendust to 10 Years and Red,
SILENT SEASON incubated for a year with lead singer & lyricist Jeremy Rae and
drummer Dave Pappalardo writing and rehearsing to define the band before coalescing
with guitarists Brendan Sheehan, Jay Driscoll and Anthony Puliafico Jr.
The band has worked with producers such as Alex “The Greek” Hatziyannis, Brad
Young, Creed bassist and Dark New Day singer Brett Hestla, Jonathan Wyner and
David Bendeth on their various releases.

After a great national response and quickly making a name for themselves, SILENT
SEASON decided it was time to record their new music since their sound has evolved.
The band took the end of 2017 to hit the studio and start working on every idea they
had. With 2018 as the game changer, they are making a point to play nationally and put
out some of the best music this band has ever done.
Introducing SILENT SEASON – a band whose emotional melodic rock, forthright
message and unrelenting determination is anything but quiet.

LOS ANGELES (Thursday, July 22, 2021) – AXS TV puts the spotlight on an eclectic array of passionate collectors and the incredible music items they hold dear in the all-new music memorabilia series Rock My Collection—premiering Sunday, August 15 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Rock My Collection is produced by Critical Content, with executive producers Jenny Daly, Tom Forman, R. Greg Johnston, Ahmet Zappa and Matt Pickel.

Hosted by Ahmet Zappa—the best-selling author, producer, musician, and head of the iconic Frank Zappa Estate—Rock My Collection is a celebration of some of the world’s most legendary music artifacts connected to an impressive roster of industry trailblazers. Collectors are invited into the studio each week, joining both in-person and zooming in from their private collection spaces, to showcase their prized memorabilia, share their personal acquisition stories, learn more about the history behind each piece, and ultimately find out its potential value. Ranging from weird and rare to deeply personal and possibly even priceless, the series highlights notable items including a copy of Yoko Ono’s book, Grapefruit, signed by Ono and John Lennon on the day he died; Stevie Nicks’ stage-used microphone from Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours tour complete with remnants of her lipstick; Tom Petty’s scooter; an Italian roadmap signed by guitar great Jimi Hendrix; handwritten lyrics signed by late Metallica bassist Cliff Burton; a zombie suit from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video; a cymbal signed and played by NirvanaBob Marley’s first 45, released as “Bobby Martel;” Brian Wilson’s 1983 driver’s license; love letters written by Axl Rose; and a pair of Elvis Presley oddities that truly must be seen to be believed, among many others.

“Collecting memorabilia is often an emotional experience for fans and a way for them to connect with their musical heroes on a much greater level,” Zappa said. “Some of the collector’s priceless pieces on the show are truly moments of rock and roll history that you can hold in your hand, they have the power to teleport appreciators back in time with an all access pass, right into the lives and careers of some of the worlds most legendary musicians. Each piece has a tale to tell, and I’m excited to be joining forces with AXS TV to discover how these rare items became part of their current owners collection and unearth the stories behind these rocking artifacts for everyone to enjoy.”

Joining Zappa on this entertaining musical odyssey is Stephen M.H. Braitman of MusicAppraisals.com, an accredited senior appraiser affiliated with the American Society of Appraisers, who specializes in music archives and memorabilia and has worked directly with many notable artists and estates. Using his encyclopedic knowledge and unparalleled expertise, Braitman delivers a unique perspective on the origins of each item and is on-hand to provide a detailed estimate.

In addition, AXS TV has partnered with auction powerhouse Gotta Have Rock And Roll, a popular online auction house that specializes in music memorabilia, presenting an exciting interactive component that allows viewers to get in on the action and own a part of music history. Viewers may bid on select items by visiting AXS.TV/RockMyCollection with new auctions going live following each premiere episode.

“It’s a real privilege to be able to get up close and personal with these items, many of whom have played important roles in the legacies of some of music’s biggest names,” Braitman said. “It’s also great to share in the passion and excitement of these fellow music enthusiasts, and help give them a more complete picture of the items they possess. There are so many iconic pieces to show and stories to tell, and we look forward to sharing them with our viewers when Rock My Collection premieres on August 15.”
