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.

Well, Day 1 at Welcome To Rockville is in the books, and as I get ready for another day in the sweltering fields of Metropolitan Park, I thought I’d squeeze in a quick post on three of the smaller acts from Day 1 who caught my attention.

Terri Nunn is the voice of the grossly underrated rock band Berlin. She has produced a crazy, large body of work from her time as an actress, to belting the signature song from the Tom Cruise, behemoth of a movie Top Gun. She has been keeping the Berlin fire warm touring with her own version of the band for some time. Terri has recently reunited with writing partner, and original Berlin member, John Crawford to record and tour behind a new album. She also took some time to sit down for a lengthy interview with RARA’S farm to discuss her acting career, the song that put the band on the map, and her love of Heart’s Ann Wilson.
