I'm sure that many of you in Jamestown, NY know about my good friend, Jon Anderson's recent passing. His vocal performance of the ending of "Patience", by G&R and our duet of "If I Had A Million Dollars" have always been crowd favorites at my Western New York shows. He battled Cystic Fibrosis and Diabetes his entire life and still maintained a positive outlook in everything he faced right up until the end. I'm grateful to have known him well and to be able to call him a true friend.

I'll be performing at a benefit for Jon's family on Sunday, 11/2 at Shawbuck's in Jamestown, NY and hope that you can attend. We'll kick things off at 1:00pm with the Bill/Jets game and "Every Minute Counts will be taking the stage around 2:00 ro so.. (Jon was always a huge Jets fan and many a Bills fan engaged in debates with Jonny over the years. This seemed like a good date to have our event.) I will be performing right after the game and Jamestown's best party band, The Porcelain Busdrivers will go on from 5-6. I might get back on stage foranother set after the PBDs are finshed I'm really looking forward to celebrating Jon's extraordinary life with many our our mutual friends on November 2nd. Hope you can join us!

I'm pumped that 106.9 Kiss FM in Jamestown, NY/Warren, PA has been playing my new song, "Christine", from my "Long Way From Moving On" CD. If you like that song, please call Kiss to request it! Thanks.

Thanks so much for your support the past few weeks as I've been competing in a Battle of the Bands sponsored by Debunkify.com in conjunction with Mytracks.com. I'm proud to announce that I came in second place with nearly 4000 votes and was named a co-winner! Thanks so much for casting those votes for me! Though I did not receive the most votes, it's still a victory because I'll be opening the Myth Farewell Tour grand finale show at The Newport Music Hall in Columbus, OH at 6:00 on Saturday, 7/14. Kate Voegele (who received only 300 more votes than I did) will be the headliner. I'm honored to be playing with such an amazing, young singer/songwriter. She will also have her entire band with her, so I'm sure that the show will be incredible! As runner up in this competition, I've been afforded a great opportunity to receive a ton of exposure. Debunkify is promoting the heck out of this event with several forms of media. I've already given a few interviews with newspapers.
Doors open at 6:00 on 7/14 and I play a 45 minute set starting promptly at 7:00, so get there early! The show is totally free and it's open to all ages as well! Visit www.debunkify.com for more info or click on "Newport Music Hall" on the tour page of my site for directions to the venue, etc. Hope to see you at the show on 7/14!

Check out this cool piece written by Ray Devine in the Friday, 7/6 edition of The Oxford Press regarding the 7/14 show with Kate Voegele:

"Main Event July 14 features two with Miami ties"

Miami student Kate Voegele has won the statewide, online Battle of the Bands between tobacco-free music artists netting 4,243 votes out of more than 15,000.

This means she will be headlining at the standTunz Myth Farewell Tour Main Event on July 14, at the Newport Music Hall in Columbus.

The show is free and open to all ages; the hall's doors open at 6 p.m. with Jackson Rohm, Miami class of '93, who placed second in the voting with 3,934 votes, opening an hour later.

The Myth Farewell Tour is sponsored by stand, Ohio's youth and young adult counter-marketing campaign as part of its DEBUNKIFY campaign to help disprove common myths about tobacco.

"It's exciting to know that music fans across the state chose me to headline the

standTunz Myth Farewell Tour Main Event," Voegele said. "I'm passionate about music, but I also want to set a good example for other young adults by supporting a tobacco-free lifestyle. We encourage our fans and everyone who voted online to come out and see our performance at the Newport Music Hall. It's going to be a great end to the performance-packed six-month tour."

Voegele is taking a break from school, missing the last month of spring semester, after signing with MySpace Records last fall. She released her debut CD, "Don't Look Away," in May and has been touring since April. While she may not be returning to classes in the coming semester, Voegele "absolutely" plans on graduating but "... came into college knowing that music would be my number one priority."

Her parents, Betsy and Will Voegele, of Bay Village near Cleveland, and her younger sister, Amy, have been behind her the whole time.

"They said I can do what I want; I'm very lucky, a lot of people doing this at my age wouldn't have that kind of support," Voegele said. "My sister brings her friends to my shows ... it's really nice to have her support, she's very cool with it."

For Voegele, "... there is no place like it (Oxford), it is its own little world. I needed to put myself into music and I don't think I could have done that without two years to be a normal college kid. I love Oxford."

Miami Alum Jackson Rohm agrees.

"I came to Oxford after I was offered a track scholarship and was considering Cornell or Virginia. I visited and fell in love ... I wish I could do it again, I love college," he said.

Rohm got his start in Oxford, majoring in finance and lining up the door to Stadium to make some cash on the side. After graduating in '93, Rohm decided to pursue music full-time. He released his fourth independent CD, "Four on the Floor" last year and is planning on recording his fifth starting in November.

"I don't mind being independent ... the Internet revolution has changed everything for us (independent artists), you don't need someone to open all the doors for you, although they often help," Rohm said.

Although based out of Lakewood, near Cleveland, Rohm has been touring aggressively

with an average of 200 live shows a year. He's seen the music scene evolve, especially in Oxford where he always manages several shows, almost exclusively at the Stadium.

"I have a relationship with them; they take good care of me," he said.

"Music is a cycle and from a generalized standpoint students are into the club scene rather than live music; doesn't mean it's a bad scene, it just doesn't get people out to the shows," said Rohm. "This is college in general, 18-21, but there will always be a market for people that do what we do and we jump at the chance to get people out, that's why the DEBUNKIFY tour is so great."

Also, check out this brand new review of "Four On The Floor" by Brad Frey of Cleveland Bar Tab Magazine appearing in their June 2007 edition:

Jackson's fourth album is his best work yet. The 12 song CD is filled plenty of acoustic material and catchy pop ballads. His music is comparable to newer Counting Crows or vintage Barenaked Ladies. Most songs on the album could be chosen for singles for radio play, so I don't know how he picked one out. The song "Gasoline and Matches" is the best track on the new album and really makes you get a feel for the sincerity of his music. Also, make sure to check out the song "Dreamer".

Hey all! Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Check out this great review of my "Four On The Floor" CD that appeared in the 10/25-31 edition of Cleveland's Free Times Magazine:

Four on the Floor

(self-released)

jacksonrohm.com

Based in Lakewood, local singer-songwriter Jackson Rohm plays shows around the Cleveland area about four times a month and up to 200 shows a year annually. The past few years have been all but relaxing as Jackson has released three albums, appeared in various venues/bars throughout the States and still had the time to record his new album, Four On the Floor. Highlights include the radio-friendly "Waste of Time," which has gotten airplay locally on 106.9-KISS FM, and "Dreamer," a powerful ballad which tells the story of losing love and gaining it back. Produced by Aaron Thompson, the album is a major leap forward for Rohm, whose full-bodied voice is every bit as appealing as that of Matchbox Twenty's Rob Thomas or the Goo Goo Dolls' Johnny Rzeznik. - Stephen Tompkins

Also, have a look at this excerpt from Danyrae Lockwood's piece featured in the 9/25 edition of The Evening Leader in Lima, OH. Dany is a recent Miami of Ohio grad and a long time supporter of my music. I'm so flattered by her kind words in the following article:
..."My absolute favorite artist ever is Jackson Rohm - and I can prove it by the autographed T-shirt, multiple copies of CDs, tons of pictures and all the great memories. Jackson is an Miami Alum who quit law school to follow his dream of playing (music) - something he is very successful doing - and happened to get his start playing at Stadium (in Oxford, OH). I'm honored to call him a friend and the rush I feel about heading to his show during Miami's Homecoming Weekend in a few weeks literally makes me smile and gives me goose bumps. He's talented, and most importantly a great person. If you're reading this column check out his Web site, www.jacksonrohm.com, to see why I'm his number one fan."

Recently, I was honored at the 2006 Chautauqua County Music Awards with the award for Song of the Year for my song, "Four On The Floor". The song was selected for the award by Kevin Rowe, President of JAMtown records. I am truly grateful to be given this honor! Thanks Kev! See below:
