My phone rang Tuesday afternoon and I saw a new number on the screen. I was expecting my first call from Christina Chriss, a young artist who has been making waves in the scene for several years. I was curious to hear how she was feeling, because I had seen the many amazing photographs of her with her band, Kaleido, at the Majestic during the record release party for "Unbreakable", their second release in two and a half years.

"The thing I remember most is that people were saying that the show was on another level." Christina said with an endearing mixture of awe and exhaustion.

Kaleido have accomplished a lot since hitting the scene in October of 2011. In addition to travelling to both New York and L.A. (where they played the famed Viper Room), the band has played dates on the 2012 & 2013 Van's Warped Tour, CMJ Music Marathon, dates on the 2013 Rockstar Uproar Festival, lead singer Christina Chriss singing the National Anthem for the Detroit Tigers, Pistons and Red Wings, opening for Kid Rock, Evanescence, The Offspring, Chevelle, Skid Row, Tesla, and more. Kaleido was named the 2013 BEST BAND in DETROIT by Real Detroit Weekly, and also won the 'People's Choice' on 89x for 11 consecutive nights, beating big name artists Muse, Jack White, Blink 182, Dropkick Murphys, We Came As Romans, Silverstein & Billy Talent to name a few. The band is currently planning a midwest -- possibly national -- summer tour. "We're feeling things out." Chriss said.

Kaleido's latest release is available on iTunes, Google Play, and all the other online outlets in addition to being available for your listening pleasure on their own website:

The latest from the band: "Well we have a new bass player, he is well-known in the Michigan bass world. Grov "Gt" Tigue aka Sir Slap Nasty. He brings a fresh sound to the low end. We just played our first headline show with him last weekend at Uli's Haus of Rock.

We are headlining a big show at Planet Rock on April 5th with three other Michigan based bands. June 26th we are headlining the 89x Homeboy show at the Bullfrog in Redford. We have Bloodline Riot in direct support with Ignoring the Echoes and Broken Day Machine.

As far as who have we played with? The list is long. We don't really like to say "we have shared the stage with so & so and so & so because every band can do that. Here are a few of the bands we were direct support for: Days of the New multiple times, Pop Evil, Sponge, Bullet Boys, Alien Ant Farm, Fozzy, Hed Pe, Soil, Prospect Hill, Mushroomhead, Eye Empire, Stardog Champion, Twice Broken, A Memory Down and the list goes on."

I've been representing Sheldon Kay and his radio show for several years now and I feel like I've know him forever. Our relationship is nearly telekinetic. I try to anticipate his needs... or help him find the words he's looking for... or sometimes we just look at each other and know what we're thinking. It's an ideal business relationship because nothing is more important than communication.

The Rock and Roll Lawyer Show, which celebrates the rockabilly, roots, and other various musical realms, airs every Friday at 6 PM EST on WCXI 1160-AM -- which can be heard on terrestial radio in some areas and streaming worldwide using or the TuneIn App for mobile devices.

Sheldon Kay is really a lawyer and he's gotta work sometime....

One of my favorite parts of working with the radio show is chatting with listeners in our facebook group:

I look forward to meeting lots of new listeners!

Cheri Clair is the Creative Director and Publicist for Sheldon Kay, The Rock and Roll Lawyer... in addition to being a contributing editor here, booking bands and doing promotion.

Cheri Clair introduces two young bands making big waves in the waters of Detroit


The young standout band The Porcelain Doll Collection is a punk/garage revival, mostly female, band from Riverview, MI. The band consists of Alayna Brooke on Vocals, Lauren C Reyna and Cam Anderson on Guitar, Dylan Kissel on Bass, and Zoe Kissel on Drums. TPDC was formed on September 23, 2012. TPDC is heavily influenced by the RIOT GRRRL movement and garage rock/punk. TPDC's sound can be likened to Bikini Kill, L7, Tijuana Sweetheart, The Ramones, The Cramps, Kathleen Hanna, The Runaways, Joan Jett, and The Cramps. 

 Quote from the band: "We aren't here to bring around an old movement, we're here to create a whole new generation built on the staples of groups before us. An "in your face" act of feminism and other f-words over an energetic angst fest of raw music." 


Three Macomb teens have been shocking audiences and making waves all over Metro Detroit lately. The band, appropriately known as Shock Wave, has been together for about 3 years, but in that short time, has played an unprecedented amount of shows. Comprised of Angelo Coppola (17) – Drums & Lead Vocals, and brothers David Frankel (16) – Guitars, and Dylan Frankel (18) – Bass & Vocals, these young men have been making a name for themselves in the local and national rock scene. 

Aside from performing all over Metro Detroit, the band has made it a priority to use their talents to help those less fortunate. In their short time together, Shock Wave has played for over a dozen charitable events ranging from fundraisers for private individuals in need, to well known non-profit organizations that have raised money for children’s autism, toys for tots, breast cancer, children’s hospital and more.
