Scooter Brown Band Impresses

The Scooter Brown Band Impresses Opening for Charlie Daniels Band

Upon arriving at the Florida Theater to see the Charlie Daniels Band perform, I did not know there would be an opening act performing. After discovering who The Scooter Brown Band was, I ended up being more than pleasantly surprised by this new act’s bold southern rock sound and sexy yet down-home stage charisma.

Charlie Daniels Band Brings New Music to Florida Theatre

Charlie Daniels Band – Jacksonville Show Review

When Charlie Daniels strides onstage in his silver buckled blue jeans, leather boots, and hat, it is clear that he is not like many eighty year old musicians who still occasionally limp out on stage to warble an old chart topper. He establishes himself as a presence- a presence that doesn’t give a damn about anything but the music.

Kansas Brings Classic Show to St Augustine Amphitheater

Kansas St Augustine Show Review

It was clear that Kansas was opening for and not co-headlining with Foreigner at their late winter 2017 St Augustine tour stop. Despite that, they delivered a defining performance, showing that their music is more important than any gimmick or specific lineup.

Foreigner Delivers Classic Appearance in St Augustine

Show Review: Foreigner St Augustine Amphitheatre

Foreigner has always been a band that pushed boundaries and embraced gimmicky sex appeal. 40 years later, on an anniversary tour most bands from their genre never made it to, they stayed true to form. We were treated to nearly painted on skinny jeans, mic stands and drum sticks thrown high, and a great light show.

Jacksonville Florida’s Teen Divorce Release First EP

Teen Divorce – Almost Heaven EP Review

Jacksonville Florida emo/punk pop trio Teen Divorce dropped their self produced debut EP Almost Heaven, late this winter, in the midst of 2017 tour leg. The record has a unique and nostalgic feel despite a fairly modern indie sound. It’s heartfelt and almost accidentally catchy. Their music is obviously genuine and I see a lot of potential in their work as they move forward through upcoming tour dates and a future full length record.

Pierce the Veil Debuts New Music Video

Floral and Fading – New Music from Pierce the Veil

Pierce the Veil recently debuted a music video for their new, and charming as hell, pop punk track, “Floral and Fading”. It’s a classic emo hit that might seem shockingly overproduced and synthy if you aren’t used to Fearless Records, but there is something to be said for that sticky sweet and nostalgic 3rd wave emo sound. Lighthearted delivery of suicidal lyrics, a music video that nods to “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, and the never forgotten “woah-oh” laced breakdown together are oddly classic at this point.
