julieg@herald-mail.com FREDERICK, Md. - If you want to listen to pop music, watch a band lip synch or see a big light and fireworks show, Little Feat isn't for you. If you like classic rock performed differently from one show to the next, then Little Feat could provide your kind of music. "It's an acquired taste, since it's not pop music, not a flash in the pan, or we wouldn't be doing it," said Paul Barrere, guitarist and vocalist for Little Feat. Little Feat, which originally started in 1969, is certainly not a flash in the pan. The band, performing Wednesday, April 20, at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick, attracts many people who are into the jam band scene, said Barrere.

Stuffed shirts should stay home. The second MasterWorks program of the Maryland Symphony Orchestra's 25th season - "Smiles for an Autumn Evening" - is a celebration of humor in music. The orchestra is slated to perform a concert Friday in Frederick, Md., and two in Hagerstown this weekend. The fun will begin with "Commedia for 'Almost' 18th Century Orchestra" by contemporary composer William Bolcom. The "almost" refers to the presence of clarinets, which would have been rare, and piano instead of harpsichord in the 18th century orchestra, MSO Music Director Elizabeth Schulze explained in a recent telephone interview.

Richard Marx is an artist who writes what he feels. At the age of 23, the Illinois native had been in the entertainment industry long enough to know that nothing was sacred in L.A. "I already had kind of a chip on my shoulder," he recalled last week during a telephone interview from Ashland, Ky. A background vocalist for Lionel Richie and Kenny Rogers, Marx said his early experiences prompted him to pen the single, "Don't Mean Nothin'," a...

You might not recognize their names. But if you're a fan of "Malcolm in the Middle," "The Simple Life," "Dateline NBC," MTV's "Road Rules" and "Real World," you probably recognize their music. After all, their work has been featured on some of the top shows on television. They've also lent their music talents to radio and television commercials. But they're not just about soundtracks and jingles. The men known as Zupe and Nichols can play a mean blend of blues, jazz and rock.

The curtain rises on a darkened stage and a spotlight illuminates the silhouette of a slender man wearing a sequined glove. A fedora covers his face, a military-style jacket drapes over his shoulders; and his feet, dressed in white ankle socks and black loafers, begin to move to a steady, pulsating beat. The image is as powerful as the music - an image that is unmistakably Michael Jackson. While the King of Pop is no longer with us, he still is very much on the entertainment radar.
