John Moreland – Cactus Music & Mucky Duck – Houston, TX

Written by Samuel Barker When John Moreland last rolled through town with The Campfire Songs tour (featuring Aaron Lee Tasjan and Caleb Caudle), he kept his new material mostly, if not completely untouched. (I don’t recall any new songs being played) So, when Moreland came to town to promote his new album, High on Tulsa…


Jimmy Buffet – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX

Written by Dave Clements Heading to the Woodlands Pavilion on this Thursday night, miraculously managing to dodge the rain, I had one thought in my head.  God bless Jimmy Buffett!  I assure you I have no intention of crossing the line into those conversation taboos, politics and religion.  It’s just that these days it seems…


Neil Diamond – Toyota Center – Houston, TX

Written by Dave Clements It was just another ho hum long holiday weekend in the life of this roaming photographer in Houston, TX.   Beginning with Friday night, I had the opportunity to experience a performance by one of the favorite artists ever, Keb’ Mo’.  I last saw him when he opened for Bonnie Raitt at…


Around the Edge: 2015 New Orleans Wine and Food Experience – New Orleans, LA

Written by Eddie Ferranti May 21, 2015 at 12:00 PM They say in life that you can never get too much of a good thing.  Well for Rose and myself that is so true concerning the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience,  known in Nawlins as the NOWFE.   The 23rd installment went down so smoothly, even…


The Bluebonnets – Under The Volcano – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Back in 2013 Rose and I ventured to the Viva Big Bend music fest and had a great time.  One missing piece from that visit though was the absence of a band who had an unfortunate accident in Alpine on the way to the gig.  Finally this night in Houston we…


Dave Matthews Band – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX

Written by Dave Clements I just can’t believe that it was entirely coincidental that the Ironman triathlon competition happened to be coming to The Woodlands on the same weekend that Ironman Dave Matthews was scheduled to perform.  You might ask, why do I think Ironman is a good reference to him? Well, for me it goes…


Jeff Beck – Hard Rock Casino – Northfield Park, Ohio

Written by Jim Bille Jeff Beck is on the road with his 2015 tour and made a stop at the relatively new Hard Rocksino in Northfield Park, Ohio recently. The venue is inside the casino and holds about 2500 people which appeared to be filled to capacity for the two time Rock and Roll Hall…


Lady Antebellum – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX

Written by Dave Clements It’s no secret that I can get on a mild rant sometimes about the cookie cutter performers coming out of Nashville these days. That’s one big reason why I was really looking forward to attending the Lady Antebellum concert at the Woodlands Pavilion on Sunday, May 3rd. Lady A (aka Hillary…


ZZ Top / Jeff Beck – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX

Written by Dave Clements Heading out on this pleasantly cool, early May Saturday to the Woodlands Pavilion, I knew I was in for a treat…times two.  The co-billed entertainers I was there to see were Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Jeff Beck and ZZ Top.  Their ‘Beards and Beck’ tour was a must see…
