Fall From Grace – Scout Bar – Clear Lake, TX

Written by Marc McKinney May 30, 2012 at 09:00 PM I can remember when Fall From Grace (FFG) came out in 2004; they had hip, cool hit called “Blue & Cold” off their freshman, self-released CD, “Rise from Ashes”.  Then they released another single “When Heroes Don’t Prevail”.  But I’ll be honest, I thought this…


Chickenfoot w/ Black Stone Cherry – Bayou Music Center – Houston, TX

Written by Chuck Mitchell May 29, 2012 at 08:00 PM The Red Rocker flew through H-Town at speeds greater than 55 MPH with the rest of Chickenfoot in tow on May 29, 2012!  I have never had the pleasure of seeing Sammy Hagar live and can certainly tell you that I won’t miss him or…


The Stone Coyotes – Dosey Doe – Spring, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti May 29, 2012 at 08:00 PM Since 2001, Rose and I have had the pleasure to follow our now good friends, The Stone Coyotes; a rockin’ good time band out of the Boston area. Coming down to Texas has been something the trio of Barbara Keith, crusty and crazy hubbie Doug…


2012 Kerrville Folk Festival – Quiet Valley Ranch – Kerrville, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti May 24, 2012 at 12:00 PM “Welcome home”. That was the simple phrase that you saw as you pulled into the Quiet Valley Ranch in Kerrville, Texas for the staging of the 41st Kerrville Folk Fest.  The phrase captured and permeated throughout thee event in a down home “hippie” type setting…


Paul Thorn – Dosey Doe – Woodlands, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti May 20, 2012 at 08:00 PM Rock, folk, gospel, and funny.  Just a few words that come to mind when describing the experience that is a Paul Thorn concert.  Rose & I ventured north of Houston to take in our fourth gig with this engaging man at a cool venue called…


Larry Carlton – Dosey Doe – Woodlands, TX

Written by Michael Pittman May 19, 2012 at 08:00 PM Larry Carlton…who’s that? I heard that question a lot as I was talking around and fairly enough, if you haven’t followed jazz music or any of the derivatives of the genre you wouldn’t probably know. On the other hand, to a jazzer it’s like asking…


Dave Matthews Band – Woodlands Pavilion – Spring, TX

Written by Tanya Pedersen May 18, 2012 at 08:00 PM Maybe it was the fact that it was May instead of the usual late summer date; maybe it was the fact that Dave and the boys hadn’t been around Houston for a good spell and chose us as the starting point of the tour; but…


Martina McBride – Arena Theater – Houston, TX

Written by Dave Clements May 18, 2012 at 08:00 PM I had photographed Martina McBride a few years ago at the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo. That experience was not positive due to the rather onerous release I had to sign just to take her photo. So when I heard she was performing a…


REO Speedwagon w/ Styx – Woodlands Pavilion – Spring, TX

Written by Dave Clements May 12, 2012 at 07:00 PM I’m not sure I have had the opportunity to sit outside on a more beautiful mid-May night in Texas AND I have been here for over 30 years. Over twelve thousand people were with me as a nice cool north breeze blew through the The…


Ricky Jackson – Twin Oaks Tavern – Humble, TX

Written by Michael Pittman May 12, 2012 at 07:00 PM If ever there was an artist who needed to release a CD it’s this one.  I’ve been a fan of Ricky Jackson’s ever since I first saw him at the Corner Pub in Conroe sometime last summer. If I can help it, I never miss…
