Patrick Barnitt finds different grooves on “Sway”

Vocalist Patrick Barnitt will release his second album, “Sway” July 5, 2019. The album is full of 13 tribute tunes originally done by recognizable names such as Cole Porter, Chicago, The Doors and more. What the eclectic group of songs has in common is Barnitt’s superior phrasing and classic crooner touches.

Patrick Barnitt Holds Sway

My first impression of Barnitt’s voice when I started this CD was that he sounded like a more swinging version of Jack Jones, whose voice I liked very much, thus I was surprised to see his voice described as a tenor.

Coffin 2 – First Poster and Trailer Creak Open

Leomark Studios and Skyrocket Productions have announced that Coffin 2 will have a week-long theatrical run in Los Angeles from August 11-17 at the Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills.

Coffin 2 is the sequel to the successful – you guessed it – Coffin. The original was released in theaters in 2011 and placed in the Top 20 rentals at Redbox in its first week of release (2012). Coffin still has a strong fanbase, both domestically and internationally, seeing regular play on The Horror Channel (UK) and other outlets.


Coffin 2

A powerful man, Marlo Stanfield of The Wire, once told a prison officer, “You want it to be one way. But it’s the other way.”

Now, of course he’s not in Coffin 2. But it might as well be the plot of the film. Rolling off of the rambunctious intrigue of Coffin, this sequel brings some major players back together to play with your expectations and kidnap a few folks along the way, again. There’s mutilation, pontification on poisonous “Jamaican ginger jake,” and even a thrilling scene involving a necklace. Trust me, it’s all there. I even wrote it down in my notes! A champion of being low budget and not caring about your bougie cinematic sensibilities, Coffin 2 walks down the runway serving you a little Saw and a lot more “we know it’s ridiculous, just enjoy the ride.”

Barnitt was one of Trek’s go-to alien guys, a favorite of Jonathan Frakes, and often encased in Borg costume and makeup. Barnitt, in Borg get-up, even graced the cover of TV Guide, the First Contact theatrical poster and on one of the discs in a Trek DVD set. invited Barnitt to contribute a guest blog recounting his wide-ranging Trek experiences and filling everyone in on his life today, and he graciously took us up on the offer.

Currently playing at the Los Angeles Theatre Center, Josh Agle and Cynthia Bradley’s Shag With a Twist is not a musical or a play, but a story told mostly through dance, a slight, amusingly whimsical murder mystery big on style and flavored by Shag aesthetics.

What is shag? To some, it’s is a type of carpet, to others it’s slang for sexual intercourse. According to Austin Powers’ groovy world, it’s a hairstyle once worn by a more radical Jane Fonda. It’s also a type of dance.
