Another Chat with Kimberley
Saturday, December 31, 2005

If you didn't get a chance to join the chat with Kimberley Dahme recently, you have another chance, as Kimberley will be having another chat session through her Official Fan Club on Monday, January 02, 2006 at 10:00pm Eastern Standard Time.

As with the last session, in order to join the chat, you'll have to sign up to the group, which is a part of the Yahoo! Groups community.

Kimberley Chat: The Aftermath!
Tuesday, December 20, 2005

Well I had the chance to partake in the chat with Kimberley Dahme through her Official Fan Club. Monday night. I was keeping notes, but I couldn't copy/paste from the chat session directly (stupid Java), so this isn't word for word exactly.

The chat session consisted of about 17 people, including Kimberley. It was a very informal chat session, but I did manage to pick up a little bit of info.

I asked her how many songs she's done for the next Boston album, and so far, she's assisted on two of them.

Someone asked about the rumor of Brad taking over lead vocals, and like what was previously reported from boston.org, who asked Brad Delp directly, and it's not true. In fact, she had this to say:
"Brad is Boston he can never leave again. Well excuse me Brad and Tom have to stay always and of course all of us Fran, Anthony, Jeff, Gary"

As far as her Christmas plans, you can look for her to be visiting a couple Nashville hospitals (she mentioned Vanderbilt and Baptist Hospital), as she said she'd be taking her guitar with her and "knocking on doors", to help bring a smile to kids and adults who can't be home for the holidays.

As for questions of a Boston 30th Anniversary Tour, it might happen. No official word, but her solo performances will be scheduled around it if it does.

Boston Helps Operation Christmas
Monday, December 19, 2005

Many know that Boston (Tom Scholz) is very generous when it comes to helping various causes. This time, he helped Operation Christmas in Fall River, MA by giving a $3,000 donation.

Project Christmas is an annual event held by Citizens for Citizens Inc, which provides toys for needy children at Christmas, as well as providing needy folks with food, help with utility costs and various other outreach activities.

Boston vocalist/bassist Kimberley Dahme will be holding a chat session on Monday, December 19 at 10pm Eastern Time through the Official Kimberley Fan Club group.

To join the chat, you'll have to sign up as a member of the group, which is part of the Yahoo Groups community. Membership requires moderator approval, so if you plan on joining in, don't wait until the last minute to sign up.

If you can't join the chat, but would like to ask a question, I plan on being in the chat session, so you could send me your questions (use the "Contact Webmaster" link to your left). I can't guarentee that the question will get asked (due to volume of questions or my availability to attend the chat session), but I will make every effort.

Upcoming Boston Album (General Info)
Sunday, December 04, 2005

While there's no breaking news, I thought it'd be a good idea to create a post regarding the upcoming album, since a lot of fans might be wondering whether or not there is or will be another Boston album.

Well there is going to be another Boston album. There is no information yet regarding the title, songs, etc, but it is known that Kimberley and Brad have recorded some tracks. Now there was a rumor floating around that Kimberley was taking position of lead singer, but Troy from boston.org contacted Brad and he has denounced the rumor. Both Brad and Kimberley have been recording vocals. There have been rumors as well that the band lineup was changing dramatically, including Anthony not being invited to participate in any recording sessions, however this seems to be just another baseless rumor.

Hopefully we will get some official word soon regarding the album, and possibly be able to put to rest the rumors that have been circling throughout the online Boston communities.

Boston Reunites (sort of)
Monday, September 26, 2005
Well, it's not a complete reunion -- or a permanent one for that matter, but according to a poster on the boston.org mailing list, Brad, Barry, Fran and Sib performed at a private wedding on Saturday, September 24. I can imagine there are many Boston fans who wish they would've been invited to that wedding.
thirdstage.ca Returns!
Thursday, September 15, 2005

It's been over 2 years since thirdstage.ca said goodbye to the Boston site that bore its name. Not a lot has changed in the Boston community, but after a lot of thinking (and more webspace available), I decided to bring this Boston site back into commisison.

Those of you who visited this site in the past will see some differences; the first one is right on the first page of the site. Since I have added extra content that has been made available on this server, so I decided to use the main page as a portal in order to be able to use the thirdstage.ca name to direct people to the content, as it's easier to use that than the longer URL for the page the content resides on, plus it gives visitors the opportunity to explore content I have to offer on thirdstage.ca (so if you're a fan of the show "Charmed", you can see the section this domain that is full of video clips on that show).

Another change is that while this site was known for giving you the most and fastest Boston and Boston related news, that is no longer guarenteed. While I will be making great efforts to keep the news section current, I can't guarentee it'll be as up to date as it used to.

The primary purpose of resurrecting this site is to bring back (almost) all the material that was previously available. I have added some new material as well -- full resolution video in the downloads section. I never had the capacity to host files of that magnitide until now. Check out the Downloads section to see what's here. I hope to add more content in the no too distant future, but I can't guarentee anything.

Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Let me know by sending me an email (just use the link at the bottom of any page here).

Cosmo, the Band
Thursday, September 15, 2005

Boston members Fran and Anthony Cosmo have formed a new band, appropriately named Cosmo. The Cosmos are joined by Bill Carman (who performed on Corporate America), Mick Brooks and Patrick Orlowski. They are on the verge of releasing their first album and will be in Cincinnati on October 1 to gear up their "Alien" tour, which will feature new Cosmo songs mixed with Boston songs.

They have a webpage online at www.myspace.com/cosmotheband, however, their official site is www.cosmomusic.net, which is under construction at the moment.
