Although this week I was without any physical company in the studio, there was no way I could have felt lonely, with all those awesome tunes to spin.  The fact that they were mostly chosen by which bands had decided to play that weekend in Windsor only made it more interesting. My playlists basically choose themselves. But my favourite random-pick-off-the-shelf this week had to have been The Tree Streets with the track “White Girl”. Featuring Dave Russell on vocals, this was just an all around fantastic song to listen to.

The music around town on the weekend was quite good, with The Bradford Helner Tribute (which took place at FM Lounge on Friday the 23rd) being a great success with a spectacular turnout (Not that it’s surprising). Entertainment was provides by; The Eric Welton Band, Surdaster, The Locusts Have No King, Max Marshall, Mr. Chill & The Witnesses, and Huladog. The Reigning Queen of Burlesque and Windsor native Roxi D’Lite also made an appearance, and an impression. I never imagines at show like that at FM, but it was certainly something to see.

Check out a few photos from the show here.

Downstairs at The Coach and Horses was night one of Funnel Fest year two. I caught a bit of Blackbarn’s set, and was immediately smitten by their creepy American Gothic-esque appearance (creepiness not lessened by the solitary green light of The Coach) and soft, eerie, extremely well thought-out and played music. Other acts of the night included This Man Tells Stories and Birds of Paradise.


This week I’m going to be joined in the studio by Murad Erzinclioglu who will be giving up the low-down on the upcoming 6th year of The Harvesting the F.A.M. Fest, which kicks off it’s two-week takeover of downtown this Friday.


Welcome to The Windsor Zene’s online blog.

What is “The Windsor Zene”, you ask? And why does it sound like blatant rip-off of “The Windsor Scene”?

Well, let’s tackle that first question. “The Windsor Zene” is a new monthly zine dedicated to the education and promotion of musicians in Windsor, Ontario’s independent and underground music community, as well as promoting these artists to the community at large (and beyond). It appears in a physical format (the actual zine) as well as Twitter and on Facebook.

To answer the second question, it’s because the founders of “The Windsor Zene” have close ties to “The Windsor Scene” as well. “The Windsor Zene” is a new zine created by Jamie Greer (The Windsor Scene, WAMM Magazine, Upfront, CJAM, long time scene musician) and Murad Erzinclioglu (FAM Festival, CJAM, Rose City Sessions, scene musician) to help spread further knowledge of Windsor’s diversely talented musical community, amongst themselves and to other community ears looking to experience home grown musical talent.

JAMIE GREER founded “The Windsor Scene” as an online directory of local music back in 1999. Since it’s inception, it has grown from a directory to an online magazine (2001), to a successful program on CJAM 99.1 FM (2004), to some of the most read pieces in magazines like Upfront (2004-2007) and WAMM (2007-2009). He is also a long standing member of Windsor’s independent music scene, serving time in such bands as The Golden Hands Before God…, The Vaudevillianaires, The Hung Jury, The Eric Welton Band, Magic Hall of Mirrors, Trailer Park Sex Cowboys, TOAST, and Star Trek: The Band.

MURAD ERZINCLINGLU is co-founder of Harvesting The FAM, Windsor’s inter-arts festival that has run annually in Windsor since 2007. A former writer of “The Windsor Scene” during it’s last run in WAMM Magazine (2009-2010), Murad is also the Music Director for CJAM 99.1 FM. He also performs solo under the moniker (WH)Y.M.E.(??) and is a member of the bands Surdaster and Star Trek: The Band.

We hope to bring you the latest news on who’s playing where and when and introduce you to new musical experiences right here in Windsor, Ontario, whether it be from new, up and coming musical acts homegrown right here in “South Detroit”, or old veterans of the local music scene. We’ll let you know a little about some great out of town acts coming through the Rose City and review CDs from local artists as well.
