Description
If you like LIVE performances from the hot spots of New York City during the new wave pop culture with a jazz/rock/funk/fusion groove, you will enjoy these vintage audio and video recordings from “CBGB’s”, Soundscape, 8BC, the Bottom Line, Lismar Lounge, and others to come. Daina Shukis fronts a variety of bands with many of the same players all of whom are masters in their field. Dancing has always been a big part of Daina’s act incorporating her love of middle eastern and African styles with new wave pop art attire a La Carnival. Her vision with day-glo lightly enhances the atmosphere of exotic sensuality. While Daina is dancing this combination of exceptionally talented musicians is exhilarating. Daina composes most of her own material also with co-author Jeremy Steig. She studied piano at Skidmore College with Professor Housman, an Impressionist specialist while accompanying modern dance classes at the college and later studied with Julia Ryauskas in New Jersey. Having danced professionally in middle eastern night clubs for many years hearing the best musician from the middle east she has incorporated a middle eastern flare in some of her writing. We hope you enjoy this creative mix of talented artists. (from pagelous.com)

November 21, 2013 crowd review – Reverbnation
I can really catch the beat on this song! I love the introduction. The artist is incredible and her tone is just amazing. The song is not coarse or dull. Its very catchy. It makes me want to dance. The tone is very mellow and warm. The structure of the song is also very well balanced. The dynamics of the song is the perfect balance of powerful. Its not too strong, it’s just perfect!

March 27, 1979

An interesting departure from the standard presentation of serious music in club settings was the surprise entrance of dancer Daina Shukys toward the end of the set. Exuding sensuality, the dynamic Ms. Shukys, finger cymbals aloft, meshed beautifully with the ever-expanding spirals of musical agitation… the talent and sincerity of Ms. Shukys and the musicians. Again, Steig has dared to be different, to explore,to probe.

I like the sound of this now. The live-lounge sweet electric guitar at the very beginning of the song sounds pretty good. Then the introduction with the woman singing and the beat of those sweet drums! Whoa this is pretty good track! Oh god, that sweet bass too I can’t believe I missed that too! Forgive me, the bass player of this song. Anyway, I live the fact that there’s no chorus to this song, just a solo of instrumentals. Especially that sweet bass, man. That bass solo is just brilliant. Then the intro of the vocals again. The low tone of the bass, the high guitar and vocals, plus the sweet beat of the drums compliment each other better than the colors of the American flag. And wow, that ending too, that was live?! that was amazing, that was definitely a 10/10 and I’ve only ever given a 10/10 once before, to a track much similar to this, sweet bass and sweet instrumentals. Anyhow, 10/10 well played! (review of” Movie Show”)

 

The prelude of the song the presence of the rhythms and blues of the guitar combined with the accompaniment sets the tone for the artists voice. The songs melody speaks volumes of a live band at a chic and hip bar. Recommended for all music lovers! (crowd review of” Movie Show”)

 

. The vocals are so distinctive and rich that they just give you this wonderful and amazing feeling once the singer, starts to sing. The lyrics are so original and amusing that they make you think a lot about, what the message of the song is. The instrumental is very balanced and varied because it has all this different types of instruments playing in the background. The artist is very professional and creative once it comes to hitting the high notes.  (crowd review of “Movie Show”)

 

Like that increadible, lead gootar, sondes kinda jazy, I could here the instuments, seperaly, and very clear , the beat starts slow and picks up, at a faster beat, the rhythem, is good , this track could deafently be a hit great qualitie song, (crowd  review of” Movie Show”)

“December 31, 2013 crowd review of “The First Time I Saw You Baby – Reverbnation “the sound of the music seems to sneak up on you. the beat and the compelling music is very full. the tune at hande here is crafty and together, a well blended instrumental arrangement. this singer has creativity in here voice, she playus the words to this song. has a very attractive a personable voice. makes her performance very strong, shows a talented and gifted touch in this song.””

 “It sounds wonderful. .. has an acoustic melody technique and the accent was detailed; I appreciate how the rhythm and tempo bounce. It expands freely. This was delicious and thick with a wondrously stellar structure. The exceptionally raucous undercurrent design used by this song was creative and the beat sounds well flavored. (review of Love Potion, Wild Herb and Perfumed Smoke)”
