Counting Crows – Bayou Music Center – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti The often used phrase of “third time is a charm” worked for me recently when I caught the Counting Crows in Houston.  Playing at one of my favorite venues, Bayou Music Center, they came to town supporting their soon to be released seventh album called ‘Somewhere Under Wonderland’.    It had been since…


Matt Harlan – McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti There is an old adage that “Nice guys finish last”, but in the case of a recent performer we covered I beg to differ.   Rose and I have known Matt Harlan since his early days of performing at this same venue, ultra cool 25 years strong McGonigel’s Mucky Duck, on the…


Goo Goo Dolls – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX

BB King – House of Blues – Houston, TX

Backstreet Boys w/ Avril Lavigne – Woodlands Pavilion – Spring, TX

Written by Dave Clements Tonight’s headliner at the beautiful Woodlands Pavilion has sold over 350 million records since they came on the scene. That’s a BIG number, as was the 11,000 plus number of fans that came out to see them. I had no idea before I arrived that I would be seeing such a…

Romeo Santos knows how to command an audience — he reigns on stage, making women and men alike swoon to his steamy ballads and suave charisma.
