Ginger Leigh/Wendy Colonna – Momo’s – Austin,TX

Written by Eddie Ferantti Oct 28, 2011 at 08:00 PM It was billed as “A Night You Cannot Refuse” so Rose and I along with buds Ellen and James made the trek to Austin to catch Ginger Leigh and Wendy Colonna at Momo’s.  What an excellent move that was!    Mixing in GL’s birthday with Halloween…


Judas Priest / Black Label Society – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX

Written by Eddie Ferantti Oct 15, 2011 at 08:00 PM Put on my heavy metal shoes and jumped in the truck with my side kick Kenny and headed to the Woodlands to see the “Epitaph Tour” of Judas Priest. The last time these gents hit H-Town it was a killer gig at the Verizon and I was…


Bela Fleck and the Flecktones – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Written by Michael Pittman Oct 12, 2011 at 08:00 PM Welcome back Howard Levy! It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly 20 years but you haven’t missed a beat. The harmonica is right where it should be and the piano fits like it never left. Bela Fleck and the Flecktones in a very unassuming way…


Joe Walsh – Verizon Wireless Theater – Houston, TX

Written by Jim Bille Oct 12, 2011 at 08:00 PM That ordinary average guy Joe Walsh made a rare and long over due appearance last week at the Verizon Theater and gave the crowd more than their moneys worth.   Long time rocker Walsh is kind of a homeboy for me since I grew up…


Dolly Parton – Verizon Theater – Houston, TX

Written by David Clements Oct 11, 2011 at 08:00 PM Dolly Parton hit the stage solo with fiddle in hand and when the lights hit her she exploded into music and song.   The magnificently lit stage at the Verizon Wireless Theatre was a perfect backdrop for the wealthiest lady in country music – to…


Lindsey Buckingham – Verizon Theater – Houston, TX

Written by David Clements Oct 09, 2011 at 08:00 PM I think my wife and I set ourselves up for disappointment over this Lindsey Buckingham show many years ago, and we didn’t even know it.   We went to see Fleetwood Mac perform in Toyota Center in 2003 and thought they were terrific. Hard to…


UFO – Warehouse Live – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Oct 07, 2011 at 08:00 PM  I was fortunate enough to grow up listening to FM radio when it STILL mattered. WMMS out of Cleveland, Ohio was a stalwart flag station in the 1970’s with a killer DJ called Kid Leo.  Back in the day, he would bring new talent to…


BB King – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Written by Jim Bille Oct 07, 2011 at 08:00 PM Often panned for too much talk and not enough playing BB King did an almost about face on his detractors a couple weeks back when he brought his show to the House of Blues in Houston. This time around King put up and shut up as…


Michael McDonald / Boz Scaggs – Verizon Wireless Theater – Houston, TX

Written by Michael Pittman Oct 01, 2011 at 08:00 PM Totally nostalgic and for the 2500 or so folks in the crowd who grew up in the 70s and 80s it couldn’t get any better than this. Soft rock and easy listening with even a bit of (dare I say it) disco thrown in was…
