If you haven’t heard of ARREST MY SISTER than you are just not reading this blog!! This band is the NEXT BEST ~THING! The music is soulful, spiritual and ROCKING!! These guys put on an amazing LIVE SHOW! The band has only been together for 1 yr. and they play together perfectly. You will love the ORIGINAL SONGS mixed in with some all-time favorites! Scott Siegel AMS’s front man…Singer/Keyboardist/Songwriter is an autistic savant!

He has written over 300 songs. His family knew he was a gifted individual but the depths of that talent reveals itself on a daily basis. I believe as does Scott that they will be in sold out arenas! When Scott informed his Mom that he had written some songs… She was surprised and asked “Where are they?” He replied casually that they were “in his head.” Then Leeni Siegel asked “well, how many do you have ?”and he replied…”300!!” WOW! What an amazing HEAD!! lol… She quickly said, “Let’s write them down then!!” The rest is history as they say!

We were lucky enough to have them perform at Our A~LEAGUE Celebration earlier this month and it was the hit of the event! I was so proud to introduce them to our families in attendance! Their performance is so full of passion AND a Neuro-Diverse MESSAGE. In my book that says it all! TONIGHT They will be performing in Laguna Beach at The Ocean Avenue Brewery! 9:30 P.M. So much FUN in store if you can make it! I have it on my radar and am planning on it.

Wyatt my 11 yr old non-verbal boy w/ AUTISM loves this music. Naturally he likes all music! Music soothes his soul when needed. That being said, he has a particular fondness for Scott, Crazy Tomes, Wadada and Jon’s awesome style. In the past few months I have been repeatedly encouraging my friends and others to watch “The Cave” on YouTube!! This is one of their BEST songs and the video is BOMB!! You will love it! Please take the time to view it …BELOW!! As I was saying Wyatt loves it. I play A LOT of different styles of music…when Wyatt hears ‘The Cave’ he comes from wherever he is~ straight to the great sound!!

Arrest My Sister even MORE POWERFUL than Barney?!! YOU GOTTA LOVE THAT! So COME ON OUT TONIGHT to The Ocean Ave Brewery and Rock-Out!! VISIT the ARREST MY SISTER website…to the left of this article (Interesting sites category) AND FOLLOW This Stellar BAND as they rocket to the TOP!!

No!…Not what my brother Kevin is saying!! INSTEAD… The amazing Band fronted by Scott Siegel , Autistic Savant!! The more I hear the more I love!! Scott’s vocals are crisp, clear, and relevant! You can hear that he feels and means what he is singing! This is pure ~FEEL “GREAT”~ ROCK ‘n’ ROLL!! “Pure” being the key word here. Not downplaying the other band members…They ROCK Individually! Together THEY ROLL, Baby!!

Don’t miss the boat on this one…these guys are about to blast off to OUTER SPACE!! Awesome Guitarist, Tomer Bolotnikovaka AKA; Crazy Tomes, Seasoned Bass Player Wadada Watts and Young Drummer Jon McCracken!! What a perfect BLEND!! I can feel it! This music NEEDS to be heard! It is the most relevant message ROCK has had to DELIVER in a long time!! Seriously, when you think about it~ Rock has always sent a BRASH Message to “Certain folks” . Kids wanted to dance! They needed to MOVE! PURE Human instinct !! ( Even more so …on the SPECTRUM.) FOLKS began to HEAR the messages that Rock n Roll was putting out there and…as they say, THE REST IS HISTORY!

The 80′s Glammed ROCK up, then things seemed to go soft for rock and roll. GRUNGE came along and picked up “the slack”… new cool genres meshed melded and morphed…with METAL holding its own throughout the years (Just a lot speedier!! lol). However, me being a child of the 60′s, had been missing those Rock n Roll ‘Feel Good Anthems!!’ Where had they all gone? Seemed like no one had a Rock n Roll MESSAGE they were sending. The newer MUSIC seemed MUCH MORE, manufactured than Heartfelt! Nothing like the fun and passionate Rock n Roll anthems we grew up with in the 70′s!! Not until NOW !!

ARREST MY SISTER has a message! Scott’s awesome lyrics and delivery give CLUES into NEURO~DIVERSITY!! So exactly what “The scene” NEEDS!! His delivery of said Autism/Human Awareness LYRICS Rock the “F”- out!!! Oh, I’m sorry (Blush)… Hope that didn’t offend~ I just get carried away! This music is THAT moving to me. For years I had been telling my eldest son Aaron… how I missed a good, NEW~ Rock Band on the scene! A Band that was MORE the true ROCK of my “school-days!” Songs with HOPE for understanding and change. The change that ROCK N ROLL is visionary enough to set into motion !! Motion through movement, through MUSIC, through ART, through Scott’s MIND and his Band members SOUL!!

If you don’t have a sister…NO MATTER…arrest someone ELSE’S!! CLICK HERE and watch “THE CAVE” ;♥¸¸.•*¨*•♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥♥¸¸.•*¨*•♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥” IT SO ROCKS !!!
