Our impressions from shows that we get to witness in person.

Rock N’ Roll Hellfire at Fort Rock 2017

For those that don’t know, or are not hip to what’s going on in the land of the elderly in Southwest Florida, there was a festival last weekend called Fort Rock that rattled the dentures from the skulls of the retirement villages, golf courses, and old person sex in the STD capital of America. Fort Rock is the sister show of Welcome to Rockville that happened way up north in Jacksonville, FL. During the same weekend nonetheless. The two festivals swapped bands on Saturday and Sunday…

Umphrey’s McGee Rocks the Funk Out of St Augustine Ampitheater

Umphrey’s McGee has a large and loyal band of almost cultlike bohemian followers who know how to get down. It is no fluke; they have earned this. They have invented their own brand of rock, jazz, and funk tinged jam that is adventurous, honest, and totally inspired.

Rockville Thoughts from an Older Chick

Rock Festivals from an “Old” Chick’s Perspective

This was my first full two-day Welcome To Rockville experience ever, and I thought I’d share a bit with you.

Ok let me first say – it’s exhausting! Especially if you’re like me and want to catch at least a few songs of every single band. It’s a good 20,000 step a day kind of event!

Welcome To Rockville Bands

Bands That Shined at 2017’s Welcome To Rockville

The 2017 incarnation of Welcome To Rockville was another one for the ages. There was a bit of negative buzz about the lineup beforehand, but I suspect the great majority of fans who left Metropolitan Park on Sunday night, left the venue thoroughly satisfied.  Like me…

Big Something Brings Skill and Good Vibes to St Augustine Amphitheatre

Big Something Delivers Fun Set to St. Augustine Fans

It takes a lot for a band to stand up to Umphrey’s McGee and put on a performance that their fans will enjoy and remember, especially outside in a festival setting. At their St Augustine Amphitheatre appearance, Big Something showed that they can do this with ease.

Welcome To Rockville 2017

Show Review: Welcome To Rockville 2017

After 20+ hours under a blazing sun, a treacherous trip down I-95 and a much needed, long, hot shower, I’m back from Welcome To Rockville 2017 and counting down the days until the most powerful rock show in Florida (hopefully) makes its triumphant 2018 return. Oh, if you’re counting along, it’s only 261 more days.

As Lions and Goodbye June Stand Out Amongst Rockville Opening Acts

As Lions and Goodbye June Impress Rock Fans

Jacksonville Florida’s annual Welcome To Rockville festival brings metal, classic rock, alternative, and punk acts together downtown for two days of sweat, dirt, and good times. By mid-day Saturday two of the weekend’s stand out acts had already played, appearing on the same stages that bands like Soundgarden and Def Leppard would later grace. As Lions and Goodbye June both made the most of their short sets, bringing skill, charisma, and timeless influence onstage.
