Constantine Maroulis and Jim Boggia Rock Bend Studio

Constantine can sing, is a showman and has incredibly devoted fans. Jim Boggia fab guitarist, fab vocalist, compliments Constantine well and is hilariously uncensored. Constantine does do a lot of covers and he does them well. With that, there may not be a cd made of the evening b/c of licensing and such. Keep an ear out.

Yay, you get it!! Keep your eyes open, he'll be around a while. Wish I could have been there.

Any chance CD with covers edited out could be made? It was a great show, and I loved the venue. I'll be back for sure for other artists.

And could you invite Jim Boggia and Constantine back, too?

I'm one of the incredibly devoted fans who would fly cross county to see him perform. He's just that talented a singer/performer. However, this time, unfortunately, I was working and unable to make the flight in time for the show. I'm hoping there will be a video, and just to let you know, you'll have lots of buyers. I'm sure you know that already. haha

You had to remove middle aged women from the green room? You mean they didn't know how to behave in the midst of a huge international star like Constantine?

GET.OUT.

The reputation of his fans precedes him, and only adds to the pop culture punch line that he has become.

An edited CD is a great idea! Some of the covers are from American Idol so they might be O.K.?

Good show! I would buy one!

Constantine and Jim are phenomenal performers!!!! I am a huge fan of both men. A CD of the performance would be fantastic!!!! Definitely would have alot of buyers.

Constantine and Jim both have CD's out.....go and buy them...you won't be disappointed!!!

I am sick that I had to miss this show. I knew it would be a special event. I love that he sings some covers but hate that we might have to miss out on a CD of the performance. But I understand. I'd never want him to give that up, though, as he doesn't just sing covers - he literally reinvents them.

Hoping for more shows like this.

I would buy multiple copies if it should become available. Keeping fingers crossed.

To the person above who is apparently repulsed by middle aged people, or their contribution to this fandom, or to society in general, write this down: You will be one sooner than you may like to think. Embrace it my darling. You will find it to be the best time of your life. Because you'll have the wisdom by then to realize what's meaningful and important in life. And what isn't.

Hey, his ONLY fans are these whacko middle aged women you "removed"! They rack up huge credit card bills to abandon their families and fly all over to see him (repeatedly)sing his lousy material in tiny clubs, etc. (YOGA STUDIO? Sorry, but LMAO)They'd thrown down for a plane ticket if he was singing in a porta potty in a cornfield in Iowa. (Memo to Big C, have your "people" check into it. If you sing in it, they will come! TRUST)

BIG CAREER CONSTANTINE, BIG! HUGE in fact! Like your ego and your **** (not). Keep it up, you're a f***ing Superstar dude! As for him singing covers, most of them are even worse than the original crap on his (not selling) CD. Stop brutilizing GnR, Def Leppard and other, actual ROCKERS.

Are you kidding? You had to remove a bunch of crazed, middle aged HOUSEWIVES from the greenroom? Wow, that is a shocker. NOT. Those freaky fans of his never did know how to PROPERLY act in public..whether it be at a Broadway show or a public restroom.

Oh, dear Confan bouncer...you made the HUGE mistake of mentioning Constantcrap on your blog.

You do know that all 200 of his fans study their daily Google alerts just to make sure they don't miss anyone on the planet mentioning his name. And will stalk, post and annoy you to no end if you dare say anything uncomplimentary?

Thanks to your blog post, you've discovered the crazies who live in Confanland...where their motto is "making the Claymates look normal."

The ones you bounced make up most of his fan base. The other 200 are are pissed at you because you wouldn't let them record the show...perhaps you wern't told that "Contraband" (isn't that cute) is a constitutional right in Confanland.

Question: How many middle aged housewives fit in a green room? Not many if they're Constantine fans!

If you want to cover a REAL show with a REAL artist, I have two words for you:

Hey, do you know what's more pathetic than a bunch of middle-aged housewives obsessed with following and enjoying the performances of a washed-up American Idol contestant?

By a lot?

A bunch of bitter old Heathers obsessed with following and trashing the performances of a washed-up American Idol contestant and the women who still love him even though he never did become a superstar. Go find somebody to enjoy, for crying out loud.

Hey, why do you assume that everyone who's not a huge fan of that egomanic clown Constantine and stated such here, is a Heather? Nice try, but you're wrong.I agree 100% that the Heathers are as pathetic as the fraus they mock. They deserve each other.

From Tsigili to the blogger:

Thank goodness you've been surrounded by celebrities since birth. Otherwise, this business could get tiresome rather quickly, eh?


Good luck, beautiful!

Small world. Tino was great! Bend is one-of-a-kind! Thanks.

(Wow! Tino must be blowing off the fangirls left and right.)

Gracious, where do I begin?

Edited cd: I’ll post a comment after I speak to the owner. Also, keep an eye on the Bend Studio website where cds can be purchased.

Invite them back: Yep, we will. It was a fun show. I’m not a big pop music fan, but I can appreciate a good show of any kind of music. Why must everything be taken so seriously? Let’s have a good time.

The fan base: I didn’t know what we were up for fan-base wise. The vast majority of the audience was great, funny, women and men… I only mentioned the bouncing incident b/c I expected everyone to give the man the space he needs to be the man they want him to be; to respect the policies of the venue and not to take advantage. (imo there is nothing wrong with travelling to see shows. Everyone I know has traveled to see a show at least once, Eddie Izzard, The Misfits, Morphine, Tom Waits, Broadway shows, etc.) More surprising may be the tracking down and bashing of fans. If you want a fight go poke a skinhead in the eye. Like I said above, why must everything be taken so seriously?

Constantine: No egomaniacal behaviour from Constantine. On stage, off stage, sound check, signing, hanging out in private - no ego, no attitude, no smarmy. Only kind, grateful, respectful and funny.

Jim: The man is hilarious. Light hearted and good humored.

Anonymous @ 12:45: Don’t knock Bend Studio until you’ve tried it. It is a well known and well loved venue by audiences and the musicians who come back to play time and time again.

You should be so lucky to some day have a husband or life partner, a family who loves you enough to let you have fun and better ways to enjoy yourselves than what you do here.

The Constantine Show was a revelation. Charming, funny, talented. Who knew? I went out and bought his album today. And I really don't care how many he's sold. All I know is he sold one to me last night.
Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Hey, does anyone out there know if Jimbo messes around with the groupies? He is definitely a cutie and I would sure like to get in on some of that action. We all know that C does. Do you think they ever double up? I have a tall blonde friend....

I didn't like him on AI. Was he different, or did he still master the ham overkill?
