Robyn Ludwick – McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti As soon as she hit the stage with the lyrics “Rock ‘N Roll ’till I Die”, Robyn Ludwick flipped the switch and it stayed on throughout her killer gig at McGonigels Mucky Duck. Confessing that it was her favorite spot in Texas to play, Ludwick and her tight four piece band…


Warren Hood – McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Rose & I headed out to chase down what we like to call a “chameleon” performer by the name of Warren Hood. We slap that tag on him because he’s a highly specialized artist who can just flat out dazzle on the violin while adapting to whom ever he has surrounded…


Rod Picott – McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – Houston, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti It is amazing sometimes how the music world can mirror real life.  In the case of one Rod Picott , whom I got to catch at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck recently, it was just that. My journey to Houston became possible after I worked 9 years in the rough steel mills of…


Kid Rock – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX

Written by Dave Clements If you thought Kid Rock was just a wild and crazy guy without much musical talent then you’d have to wonder why The Woodlands Pavilion was sold out on this hot and sticky Tuesday work night in the thick of the summer. Robert James Ritchie, aka Kid Rock, was all about…


Dashboard Confessional, Say Anything & Ben Lee – Verizon Wireless Theater – Houston, TX

Written by Todd Spoth Jul 19, 2006 at 07:00 PM Doors at the Verizon Wireless Theater here in Houston, Texas, opened up at 6pm for the night’s rock show and as I drove by around 7:15pm the line to enter the venue was still halfway down the Bayou Place sidewalk. After negotiating the underground parking,…


Steely Dan / Elvis Costello – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX

Written by Kevin Black In case you are wondering why The Woodlands Pavilion is still alive and well, it’s because it’s the greatest large venue in and around Houston to see your favorite artist. The Texas heat index didn’t stop 6,500 fans from filling the pavilion to capacity. From a photographer’s view, when Elvis Costello…


Boston / Doobie Brothers – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX

Written by Dave Clements The Woodlands Pavilion is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this summer and on this night for sure, they got it right. It would have been a terrific evening of music with only the headlining band performing.  And then to couple them with one of the premier rock bands of all time definitely…


Metric – Toyota Center – Houston, TX

Written by Robert Johnson Ahead of its forthcoming release, Pagans in Vegas, Metric hit the road for two months of shows as the featured opening act for the Imagine Dragons Smoke + Mirrors tour. On July 16th, the tour made its way to Houston’s Toyota Center for a night of music and memories. Only performing…


Mike & The Moonpies – Dosey Doe Music Cafe – Conroe, TX

Written by Eddie Ferranti Country music in the mainstream these days has become a garbled mess of something that does not pay homage to the genre, but focuses more on slick videos, hot chicks and songs about trucks. That being said it was so refreshing to catch up with an Austin outfit by the name of Mike & the…


Tedeschi Trucks Band – Woodlands Pavilion – The Woodlands, TX

Written by Jim Bille One of the best and probably hottest summer shows of 2015 took place last Friday night at the Woodlands Pavilion when The Tedeschi Trucks band brought their “Wheels of Soul” tour to town. This tour also includes Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings as well as Doyle Bramhall II so there…
