The Americana Bistro Grill is reborn [after an eight month hiatus] as part of the AG News Show for Rock and Country Stars of the Americana Music Realm. The rules are simple.
1. We will interview signed and unsigned bands and artists.
2. We want originality in music and style as well as imagination [to be determined by the artist or group] but that people’s lives are not put in jeopardy
3. We will accept ALL ARTISTS regardless of their origins, orientations of all spheres, political ideology, race, ethnicity, religion as long as they concentrate on the music and talent.
4. Any acts of racism, inappropriate comments and fanaticism of any type will result in expulsion from the show
5. Relaxation during interviews and sets are encouraged. The level of relaxation is to be determined by the artist or groups themselves naturally and without use of drugs and alcohol.
6. We will begin with interviews and as the show progresses, music will be added. The exception is live music.
7. ALL artists will be treated with dignity and respect regardless of race, creed, color, ethnicity, orientation of any type, sex, religion, place of birth . The same applies to their music. The reason is that many artists in the past have not been treated with dignity and this is a crime [in the hosts book] given that they put a lot of effort into their music.
8. There will be specials dealing with trips to different places as well as cooking shows for a change of scenery.
9. We will help people and organizations [if possible] but there will be NO CHALLENGES OF ANY TYPE [LIKE THE ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE] to promote a cause unless this is initiated by the artist or group. We just want the music and the career and LIVE INTERVIEWS IF POSSIBLE
10. These rules will remain in effect for the duration of the show and will be amended from time to time as needed.
While we will interview all unsigned and signed artists, it is their responsability to participate in the interview. CANCELLATIONS OF INTERVIEW 24 TO 48 HOURS BEFORE THE SHOW UNLESS THERE IS A NECESSARY EXCUSE SUCH AS MEDICAL OR DEATH IN THE FAMILY WILL DISQUALIFY THE ARTIST FROM THE AMERICANA BISTRO GRILL ON A PERMANENT BASIS
