Hot Club Of Cowtown – Main Street Crossing – Tomball, TX – REVIEW

Written by Eddie Ferranti Unforgettable live shows are something that you strive to see being in the business that we are in.  Hot Club of Cowtown fits that bill and then some. Keeping alive the traditional country swing brand of music in today’s society is not an easy task, but Elana James has the chops…


Mystery Loves Company- The Americana- Houston, TX – Review

Written by James Killen For months I’ve been hearing about this Houston based duo, Mystery Loves Company, but I never got to the right place at the right time to catch their show. I finally had them written down in ink for a performance at the Americana on August 25th, only to have Harvey put…


James McMurtry- Heights Theater- Houston, TX – Review

Written by James Killen It hasn’t been long since my last dose of James McMurtry, but getting to see him at the Heights Theater was too good to pass up. A young writer from West Texas, Jason Robert Blum, opened the evening with a more Western than Country style of folk. He appeared solo with…


Delta Rae – Port City Music Hall Portland, Maine – Review

Written by Eddie Ferranti  It is rare when we get to cover a gig while on vacation.  Just that happened in the form of a southern band by the name of Delta Rae at the cozy cool confines of the Port City Music Hall in Portland, Maine.  Before a packed house which featured a reserved…


Deep Purple – Alice Cooper – Edgar Winter Band – Woodlands, TX – Review

Written by Dave Clements We went to The Woodlands Pavilion Friday night so I could hear six, maybe seven notes being played LIVE….and YES I got to hear them before the night was over. This is one more thing I get to check off my bucket list (more to follow).  I also got so much…


The Blasters – McGonigels Mucky Duck – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Eddie Ferranti It is funny how the name of a band can sometimes personify the evening’s performance. This night, the Blasters, did just that in more ways than one!  This outfit started back in 1978 out of the blue collar town of Downey, California and they came out with a no nonsense biker…


Postmodern Jukebox – Straight No Chaser – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands TX – Review

Written by Dave Clements Over 15,000 Houstonians missed one of the best shows of the year. My wife and I could just as easily have been among them.  On this Wednesday night with less than ideal weather impacting the pleasure of being outdoors at the beautiful Woodlands Pavilion, we had no idea we were in…


Uncle Lucius – McGonigels Mucky Duck – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Eddie Ferranti The thrill you get when a band you have been supporting for years finally “breaks thru” is satisfying to say the very least. One of those , Uncle Lucius, has broken thru to thee other side of greatness in our eyes.  Going on twelve years of relentless touring has finally started…


Don Felder, Styx & REO Speedwagon – Woodlands Pavilion – Woodlands, TX – Review

Written by Dave Clements The UNITED WE ROCK summer tour hit The Woodlands Pavilion this past Saturday night with a near sold out audience in attendance. That was the good news.  The bad news was that it was damn hot and humid with an off the chart heat index!  However, more good news is the…


John Egan/Charles Bryant/Sara Van Buskirk/Mark Zeus- The Americana – Houston, Texas -Review

Written by James Killen I had the good fortune last Saturday night to see, not one, but two great shows at the Americana. The evening opened up early with John Egan who showed up with one of his resonators to entertain the cozy crowd. He played about an hour and a half of some of…
