The band's name comes from the phrase Insha Allah, Arabic for "If God wills it. " "We thought of the name after our dad came back from Iraq," said Inshalla's lead vocalist, Mychael Wright. Mychael and his brother, Morgan, the band's drummer, said they weren't nervous for their father's life when he was sent to Iraq to cover the war. Their dad, Kelly Wright, is a reporter for Fox News Channel. He was sent to Iraq just before Saddam Hussein was captured, the boys said. Just as it might have been God's will for their father to return months later, it was probably fate for the boys to practice music.

It was more than 20 years ago, that five chums decided to form a wind quintet, thinking they'd do a show here and there. But that didn't happen. The Appalachian Wind Quintet has been going strong ever since, doing more and more shows, said Barbara Spicher, the quintet's flutist. In keeping with tradition, the Appalachian Wind Quintet will perform at the Festival of Lights Saturday at Rest Haven Funeral Chapel & Cemetery in Hagerstown. "The Appalachian Wind Quintet has been coming here for years," Brown said.

Square dancing to Lady Gaga? Maroon 5? “Come Sail Away” by the rock band Styx? People who have not been to a square dance in the last 15 years might have thought they were in some strange musical dream when they went to the 55th anniversary celebration dance for the Gad-Abouts Square Dance Club Sunday at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center. Hunter Keller, who was the caller for Sunday afternoon's dance, said there has been a trend over about the last 12 years of adding modern tunes to square dancing.

For a band that started off playing rock, Dead Men's Hollow might be hitting its stride as a bluegrass act. The Music by the Lake summer concert series in City Park had something to do with that, said Dead Men's Hollow singer Amy Nazarov. "He was one of the earliest supporters of our band," Nazarov said of Kevin Moriarty, who is head of the Washington County Arts Council, the group organizing the series. Music by the Lake will feature a concert by a regional band every Saturday at City Park, from July 7 through Aug. 25. Most of the bands fall in the bluegrass, country rock and Southern gospel genres.

SMITHSBURG - A Smithsburg High School graduate will claim his status as a rock star tonight when his band, Course of Nature, performs in New York City's Times Square for New Year's Eve.

I love my daughter, and I hesitate to criticize her in print. But she plays her stereo too loud, and I don't enjoy (a great understatement) much of the music she chooses. So when my wife started bugging me about two years ago to give symphony music another chance, I guess I was ready, if only as an antidote to today's popular music fare. I had attended Maryland Symphony Orchestra performances over the years, but usually as a husband's payback for dragging my wife to a football or basketball game.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Even with a record deal and some national exposure, The Shackeltons are still Chambersburg's homeboys. The Shackeltons, a five-man rock band from the 'Burg, will perform at The Capitol Theatre on Friday. They'll be joined by Skeletonbreath, a Brooklyn trio of drums, guitar and violin. The last time The Herald-Mail and The Shackeltons spoke, back in January, the band was geeked about write ups from Rolling Stone and praising the band's self-titled album, released Jan. 29. Since then, it's been a flurry of cross-country tour dates and gigs at music festivals -- including South by Southwest in March.

FREDERICK, Md. -- Let's just put it out there: Guitarist Mick Jones is the only original member left in Foreigner. This is a moot point, says Jeff Pilson, 51, bassist in the latest iteration of the Foreigner lineup. Pilson says regardless of whether a concert features the original band, "it's great to see a great band. " "I defy anyone to walk away from the show really unhappy," Pilson says. Pilson chatted with The Herald-Mail before Foreigner's upcoming performance Thursday, Sept.

The last time Eddie Money was at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town in West Virginia, he won $400. “I like to play slots. I play 'Wheel of Fortune,' and occasionally Vanna White is really good to me,” Money said during a telephone from his Los Angeles home. Friday night, he'll return to the West Virginia casino for a free concert for his fans. Money, whose real name is Edward Mahoney, started out as a New York City police officer in the late 1960s. “It wasn't a bad job, but being in uniform for 20 years of my life, I told myself I should have joined the Marine Corps and got it over with,” he said.
