Warming Up with City and Colour at the Beacham

City and Colour Show Review

On this chilly Tuesday evening, I warmed up at the Beacham to tunes by City and Colour. Having been a fan of theirs for years but never seeing them live, this was an ultimate treat.

The band started off with a few new songs to get the audience together. Dallas Green, jumping in immediately from one song to another, is relentless with his vocal talent. His smooth angelic voice floats across the airwaves to excite the crowd while the band supports that notion.

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.

Good Vibes at the 2017 Gasparilla Music Festival

Gasparilla Music FestivalThe 2017 Gasparilla Music Festival was a pretty rockin affair with a multicultural and genre-bending lineup of local and national acts. The two-day festival showcased better than average talent with some acts that have jumped onto my list of new favorite bands. Located on the banks of the Hillsborough River with downtown Tampa, FL as the backdrop, the venue seemed larger than the small Curtis Dixon Park that it encompassed. Throughout the four stages, there was nonstop music, sunshine, and warm weather to propel the vibe of the show forward.

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.

Kolars Show Review

Kolars at Will’s Pub – Orlando

Kolars are one of the most compelling acts to hit the rock music landscape in recent memory.  They serve up a delicious mix of distinctive music that is best described as Rockabilly Dance, or perhaps Danceabilly.  And, as I witnessed earlier this week, they deliver an incendiary live show.
