Halfway Jam - Kix

Have you ever listened to a band that you think has had only one good song, and although you never listened to well, anything but that one song of theirs, you still assume there isn't much else there.  Recently I attended "Halfway Jam" (I'm guessing you have already discovered that) and that one band, with only one good song climbed onto the stage.

Halfway Jam - Stephen Pearcy

I'll be honest, I went to "Halfway Jam" to see Stephen Pearcy and having seen Ratt before as well as his solo act earlier this year, I was excited to travel to Royalton, MN for just that reason.  What would make a man travel so far to see a show that he has seen previously?  Its Stephen Pearcy (weren't you following that?).

Halfway Jam Was Far From Half Way.

Apart from seeing "Monsters of Rock" at Alpine Valley 20 + years ago, I really haven't attended a "music festival" of any sort, which has prevented my seeing acts that I now wish I had seen.  On Saturday July 23rd I was invited to attend "Halfway Jam" in Royalton, MN and my wife and I jumped at the opportunity and I think we are very lucky we did.

Justin Bieber and The Baseball Bat of Life

I did it.  I finally did it, I listened to a Justin Bieber song, two of them actually.  I felt a little nauseous, light headed and clammy while doing so but I'm guessing that had much to do with the weather then anything else.

I Miss My Old Vinyl Records

Do you remember your first vinyl album, I still remember getting KISS Alive 2 for Christmas and two days later having to get another needle just so I could continue the repetitious playing of that album.  I still have in my music collection (somewhere), 45's and those big, bulky 33 1/3 RPM vinyl albums.  By the way, why was it 33 1/3, couldn't it have been 32 or 34?

The Birth of a Nation

The Constitution is a living, breathing document that has provided the citizens of the United States of America the ability to provide the most fair government possible and through the auspices of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence the framework has been laid.

Jackyl Kills Hazel Green

Believe me I understand how much that sounds like a bad B movie almost like a giant Jackyl killing a woman named "Hazel Green", but I assure you its not.  The title however is indicative of what happened when the band Jackyl visited The Sandy Hook in Hazel Green, Wisconsin.

Jackyl and The Sandy Hook

The chainsaw wielding denizens Jackyl, and the 93 degree temperature are waiting patiently to violate the peace and tranquility of  The Sandy Hook and its patrons.  I will be one of the patrons and when I get back from the show, I'll give my two cents on nights festivities.

I'm off!
