One of the biggest hits of Record Store Day in April was Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes’ “Live From E Street,” recorded at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park. It was such a grabber that it became a Top 10 hit on Billboard’s Blues Album Chart. Now, get ready for “Detour Ahead: The Music of Billie Holiday” from Southside on Leroy Records for Record Store Day Black Friday, which takes place Friday, Nov. 24. The album features eight Lady Day classics performed in a Southside style.
The Court Tavern's reputation as a music mecca extends far beyond New Brunswick. But new general manager Pat Kotsonis wants to make sure that it's still known in New Brunswick, too. "It's important for us to make everybody understand what our goal is, and that's just to re-create the Tavern, and rebrand it for this century," Kotsonis said. "So if we can incorporate old-school bands and music with other activities and uses, I think we're doing the community a service by that."
The late New Jersey legend Whitney Houston inspired a generation and beyond of singers. Christina Aguilera is one of those singers. Aguilera performed a tribute to Houston at the Sunday, Nov. 19 broadcast of the American Music Awards. It was tied in to the 25th anniversary of the debut of the movie, “The Bodyguard,” which starred Houston and Kevin Costner, but 2017 is also the fifth year anniversary of Houston’s death on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards in Beverly Hills, California.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
