Mike Stinson – McGonigel’s MuckyDuck – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Eddie Ferranti – June 5, 2020 30 years is a long time.  It is almost as long as it has been for McGonigels Mucky Duck to open its doors to live music again in Houston.  Seriously the Duck celebrated their 30th anniversary on June 1, 2020.  This is quite an accomplishment in the…


John Egan and Brian Kalinec – House in the Heights (House Concert Series) – Review

Written by Eddie Ferranti –  May 16, 2020 It is so nice when you get to plant a musical seed and watch it grow into a beautiful  thing .  That is exactly what happened for me recently when sweet Jen Grove invited me to her Facebook Live streaming gig.  The “seed” for this show stemmed…


The Lone Bellow – Heights Theater – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Dave Clements – February 26, 2020 I was asked a month or so ago if I’d be interested in reviewing a band that was going to open their tour in Houston in late February. I shared that I would try to move a few other commitments around and ‘do my best’ to make…

Yola – Heights Theater – Houston, TX- Review

Written by Jane Ponte – Feb 07, 2020 After years of lending her distinctive, goosebumps-inducing vocals and writing talent to other artists, it was a treat and a privilege to be front and center for the one and only Yola last Friday night at The Heights Theater in Houston, TX. The artist, who proudly stood…


Folk Alliance International – Sheriton Hotel – New Orleans, LA – Review

Written by Eddie Ferranti – January 22-26, 2020 It had been three years since Rose and I made it to the Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, Mo. We were psyched to come back when we found out it was taking place in New Orleans in 2020. Nawlins has always had a special spot in…


Cher – Toyota Center – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Kevin Black – December 15, 2019 Remember the old saying “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”? My advice to the young up and comers in the music business, don’t even think about it when it come to Cher. Cher is the bag of tricks and she pulled them all out for…


The Suffers – House of Blues – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Dave Clements – January 17, 2020 Thank you United Airlines and equal if not bigger thanks to my son, BC, lead singer of the now retired Houston based band Taste of Garlic. You remember them? Often played Fitz. For for the last several years BC has been telling me how I needed to…


Folk Family Revival – Dosey Doe – Woodlands, TX – Review

Written by Eddie Ferranti – January 10, 2020 When asked these days what is my favorite kind of music to cover I have an easy reply. Give me some classic rock.  Give me something with some meat on the bone.  Growing up in the 70’s I was reared on some of the best bands of…


Kansas – Smart Financial Center – Sugarland, TX – Review

Written by Kevin Black – December 07, 2019 My first concert was in 1970. For the first ten years of my life I wasn’t aware there was an experience like that in existence. One live show and you’re a concert goer for life. At least I was. So, I’ve seen a lot of live rock…
