95 WILL ROCK FEST - 2015

With a plethora of festivals and acts to write about, it seems that the festival I JUST left (on August 22nd, 2015) deserves a little press.  While this article will be about the entire event, I may have a surprise or two inside of it so stay with me.  Music festivals and I seem to be on a first name basis and at times those first names are curse words but will this festival and I be on friendly terms?  Well...

American Broadcasting School

My Musical Journey has been an interesting one, it has been fraught with danger and adventure, okay maybe not danger but definitely adventure.  It has taken me all over the Midwest and because of that I started this blog.  "So" you ask, "Where is this adventure?"  Well, lets take it from the top and work into the adventure.

Heart - US Cellular Center - March 21st, 2015

Take a look back the music of your youth for a moment.  Be honest with yourself and reflect back on the bands that have such power behind them that you can remember their songs and specific moments in your life.  Regardless of your age, regardless of your musical taste, regardless of the sweater you wore in that horrific school picture you wore in sixth grade, its possible.  Do you remember that song?

Joan Jett and The Blackhearts - US Cellular Center - March 21st, 2015

As we pulled our "concert van" out of the driveway on Thursday I began to get excited.  There are a few reasons why that excited me, one was the fact that it had been stored all winter long which leads to a well deserved number two.  It's interesting when I think to myself that number two should be number one but for it to be number one in importance would require number one to actually have happened before number two.  Confused?

Devil City Angels - Pzazz Event Center, September 19th, 2014

Everything around us goes through some type of iteration.  The moment something happens is an iteration in the cycle of whatever you are doing.  Whether it be putting gasoline in your tank (that instance is an iteration of the act of putting fuel in that tank) or brushing your teeth (that is an iteration of removing the goop from your pearly whites) they are both iterations of the status of objects.  As an example, examine music no, examine musicians and the many iterations they go through in their careers.  Well...

Scrap Metal - Riverside Casino - January 24th, 2015

The weekend of January 24 - 25th, 2015 was an "All-Star" weekend.  On Sunday the 25th of January two major sports had their all-star games, or "extravaganzas" if you will.  The National Hockey League was first up on that Sunday with a score that was more reminiscent of an NFL game which is interesting just for the fact that they had their own all-star game the same day.  The neat thing about "all-star games" is that the players have fun during these games and that is really all its about isn't it?

Mötley Crüe - i-wireless Center - November 9th, 2014

Slow and steady wins the race at least we've been told as much.  It seems that every time someone drops that cliche its followed by a reference to the tortoise and the hare.  The fact of the matter is that the tortoise and the hare couldn't be further from the truth.  Yes it true that in the telling of the story the rabbit loses because he is tired subsequently taking a nap and the tortoise creeps by to the win.  The poignant portion of the story wasn't the fact that the moral of the story was that the rabbit lost, or that the tortoise won, nope not even close.  What?
