Congratulations David Zelasko the winner of the Wax Mage Raffle! Thanks to everyone who participated!

Up for raffle is the remaining copy of the 20 Special Edition Wax Mage record by The Luckey Ones! This is a very limited edition LP of our latest album “Hues of American Dreams” on the Rock Rock Research Records label released in April of 2019. The album was recorded and mixed by Frank Prpic at the Center for Rock Research, mastered by Steve Carrao at Sage Mastering in Nashville, and lathed by Clint Holly at Well Made Music!

The Wax Mage album was pressed by Heath Gmucs, wax mage artisan and press operator extraordinaire, at Gotta Groove Records. It features the tie-dye art of Cleveland area artist Michael Pool, who prepared a special piece of tie-dye just for this project! Check him out at instagram @tied_n_true_dyes.  Each album in this edition of 20 is unique, and we believe it is the first time a cloth tie-dye piece of art has been cast in an album! This unique pressing is sold out thanks to you! One copy remains which is being raffled here!

The drawing will take place live at Mahall’s during their Holiday Bazaar on December 7th. Winner need not be present to win. Click the link below to order. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20.

Partial proceeds will be benefiting

We wish to thank the artisans who produced this work! And we wish to thank you as well for supporting independent artists and musicians!

Everyone You Have Ever Met

Erin Kapferer and the Center for Rock Research would like to share a track from Cleveland artists Noon’s upcoming release. Erin wrote the song as a response to her grief at the loss of her father.    Frank, Daneta and Erin, along with Aimeé Jordan happened to be tracking this very song in the studio when she received the devastating news of the death of her friend and peer, Nikki DeLamotte. In spite of the grief, the tears and the utter disbelief, we pressed on with the recording. Here’s what came forth. Erin wishes to dedicate the track, entitled “Everyone You Have Ever Met” to Nikki and the memory of her indomitable spirit…
