Dion Pride the son of Legendary Country Music Hall of Famer, Charley Pride Takes The Stage for Disabled Children

November 19, 2014 in News by Indie Artist Radio

Dion PrideOn Nov. 15th, 2014 The City of Woodward Okla. showed how big a heart it has. This town came alive with events from a Bake Sale for a family who lost their home to a fire, to a Benefit for a local man who was in a motor cycle accident, to a concert with Dion Pride to benefit a handicap park.

Our town is growing fast with new people moving in daily. With more children we need safe places for them to play. We also need a safe place
for disabled children to play and enjoy life. Just because a child is disabled shouldn’t mean they have to set back and watch others play. They
want to have fun too. The Dion Pride concert helped raise money to make Centennial Park at 8th and Texas adapted for disabled children of our community. It was amazing to see so many pull together to do something special for our children. Places like Woodward Main Street, Woodward Arts Theater, Waffle Woodward Team, Kiss On Entertainment, Modern Appliance, QB Resources LLC, The Village Mall, Tax Escobedo, McKay Ford, BK Liquor, Great White, MS Construction, La Quinta Inn and many many more.

Dion PrideThe show started out with a group from Tulsa, Okla. Miles Williams and Hammer Down. They are a wonderful group that has won audiences across the Mid West and Southern regions. These guys are great, if they don’t win you with their music they will for sure win you over with their personality. Miles music has a good up beat rhythm that keeps you tapping your toes and dancing in your seat. Miles Williams has a passion for the music he sings that hopefully will someday take him to the top. He has a heavy emphasis on lyrics with storytelling mixed with real life experiences to transcend the music to symbiotic relationship between him and his listeners. After listening and attending one of his shows you will walk away a life-long fan and a friend for life.

Next up was our Star performer Mr. Dion Pride the son of legendary Country Music Hall of Famer, Charley Pride. Dion Pride started singing and playing the guitar at the age of 5.He began five years of classical and modern piano when he was 8 years old, drums at 10, bass at 12 and started performing at the age of 14. Dion played lead guitar for his dad and entertained our troops on USO tours in Panama, Honduras, Guantanamo Bay and the Island of Antigua. He has sung and performed for audiences around the world in countries like England, Ireland, Scotland, Canada and all the Continental United States. Dion treats his fans as friends. Laughing and joking and hugs for everyone. Dion Pride is also a song writer and multi talented instrumentalist. One of his songs “I Miss My Home” was recorded by his Father. This song is often performed by both Dion and Charley Pride together. Even though he sings a lot of his Dad’s songs he has a style all his own.

Miles WilliamsDion sat on stage and sang alone and also with local children. It is not hard to see this man has a great love for children. At one point in the show a little girl wanted to sing Jingle Bells, Mr. Pride asks her to sing with him on stage. When listening to him perform it is so easy to feel his love for music and his fans. After his show was over Mr. Pride stood around with a small group of us as if we had been friends forever. He is a very well mannered person who has respect for everyone around him. Dion Pride along with Miles Williams and Hammer Down brought a wonderful show to Woodward Okla. and helped to earn the first of the money needed to make Centennial Park a place where disabled children no longer have to set back and watch others play,, it will let them feel like they can be apart of a world only know to others.

Better ChemistryThose are just a few words to describe the band, Better Chemistry, who have been overwhelming audiences since 2001 with their propulsive brew of reggae, ska, funk and rock. The band’s positive vibe and “let the good times roll” approach has won them a devoted following and a career’s worth of accomplishments. You might have heard their music during a Lakers game on Fox Sports Net (“Sunday Night, Lakers Night” and “Purple and Gold”), or on the radio (KROQ 106.7 FM, Los Angeles, KISS FM London). However, the real experience is their live performances. Looking ahead, Better Chemistry has their fourth album release coming in 2013.

The band’s story started at the Bulldog Pub in Upland, CA at an open-mic night where the band’s members first met in 2001. Discovering a common group of influences (Bob Marley, Toots, Dennis Brown, The Clash, The Specials, Sublime) the band came together and quickly built up an impressive resume, opening the stage for BB King, UB40, Steel Pulse, Aggrolites, Third World, Berlin, Average White Band, War and recording and performing with Pato Banton, Chali 2na, Tippa Irie, Shinehead and Papa Michigan from “Michigan and Smiley” Studio One artist . Better Chemistry has written and produced tracks for Fox Sports Net that gained national airtime. “Frozen in Your Tracks” aired on January 27, 2007 during the Los Angeles Kings game. “Purple and Gold” was aired during the 2008 NBA Western Conference Championship and “Sunday Night, Lakers Night” ran multiple times during the 2009 – 2011 seasons.

6 Foot Shorty, released in 2007, was a step in the band’s evolution, showcasing their growth and development as songwriters and players, while hewing to the warmth and positivity that has been the hallmark of their sound since they began. Adding to the flavor and variety, you will hear Pato Banton on the track “2 Steps Back” and the Hip Hop/Dance Hall styles of Chali 2na and Tippa Irie on “6 Foot Shorty”. The song “MCII” is licensed to Yamaha Motor Sports for an ad campaign featuring professional motocross riders on the Yamaha team. The self titled EP, Better Chemistry, is when the band opened the path to roots music, encompassing the traditions of Ska, and really started to blend genres. The cover song of Peter Tosh’s “Ketchy Shuby” was selected for the Peter Tosh Tribute Album that featured The Jerry Garcia Band, Edi Fitzroy, Andrew Tosh and Daddy Roots, released in 2005. The debut album from 2001, Undiscovered Elements, is when the band realized there was something magical that was happening. The 12 original tracks were recorded live in a garage after 6 weeks of coming together.
