Damon Bramblett – Heights Live – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Oct 29, 2010 at 08:00 PM Damon Bramblett is considered one of the greatest living country songwriters in some circles, especially Austin, Texas these days. The likes of Kelly Willis, Bruce and Charlie Roberson and Sarah Hickman have covered his tunes. After being “burned out begging for $50 gigs” Bramblett has…

  Written by Daniel Barker Oct 23, 2010 at 12:00 PM Sixteen top artists on The Texas Country Music Charts came together for a two day music festival at The Sam Houston Raceway Park on a wild and windy weekend. I had not seen many of the bands performing. I was eager for some departure…


Maroon 5 – Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion – The Woodlands, TX

Written by Tanya Pedersen Oct 22, 2010 On October 22, 2010, Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion was offering an “Intimate Evening” with  Maroon 5. An intimate evening at the Woodlands? That tweaked HMR’s interest, so off I went.  What “intimate” really meant was that they only sold reserve tickets. The lawn was bare, which I have…


Built to Spill – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferantti Oct 21, 2010 at 08:00 PM Had an extreme rare happening recently in Houston, Texas. I went to a concert without any knowledge of any of the artist’s music at all.  Zip. Nada. Nutjing. All I knew was that they carried the “indie rock” label on them and a bud of…

Conroe Cajun Catfish Festival – Conroe, Texas

Written by Michael Pittman Ok, if you to ask me to put one word on the festival I’d have to say WOW. In it’s 21st year we had 3 absolutely gorgeous days to gorge ourselves on 3 stages of music, food and friends and no one I know came away disappointed. I know I ran…


Lost & Nameless Orchestra – Corner Pub – Conroe, TX

Written by Michael Pittman Oct 09, 2010 at 08:00 PM At the Corner Pub was the totally surprising, high energy Lost and Nameless Orchestra. A very enthusiastic few told me this was one of the best bands at the festival. LNO came highly recommended by the Pub’s agent, but no one knew anything about them,…


Somebody’s Darling – The Mucky Duck – Houston, Texas

Written by Eddie Ferranti Oct 05, 2010 at 12:00 AM Being in the media stream now for going on eleven years I receive a lot of CD’s in the mail from various artists of all types.  Most go by the wayside, but one that stuck with me was a band out of Dallas, Texas called…
