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…


Radney Foster – McGonigels Mucky Duck – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Jane Ponte – December 13, 2019 Radney Foster’s latest album, For You to See the Stars, (Devil’s River Records, 2017) has been out for a good while now, and I’ve listened to it so many times I know it verbatim. It is a collection of songs that are so special, so heartfelt, and…


Kinky Friedman – McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Jane Ponte – November 23, 2019 It isn’t every day that a legend comes to town, so when I was presented with the opportunity to do a show review for music provocateur Kinky Friedman, I jumped on it. The Texas icon is still going strong at the tender age of 75 and has…


Beat Root Revival – McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Eddie Ferranti – November 02, 2019 It is always nice when you get a tip on a gig from a reliable source and it works out. This happened recently when our fellow HMR buds, Ellen and James, told us about Beat Root Revival who adorned the stage at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck in Houston….


The Black Keys – Toyota Center – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Jim Bille – November 12, 2019 After hiding out for four years fellow Ohioans, The Black Keys, have emerged with a new album and a U.S. tour to go along with it. Houston Toyota Center was one of the stops and by all appearances was close to sold out as the fans came…


VetsAid – Toyota Center – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Kevin Black – November 10, 2019 I’ve always believed that if you really want to thank a veteran, be a good American. Well, Joe Walsh is doing his part. Joe had his 3rd Annual VetsAid concert at The Toyota Center this past Sunday night where we were all inspired to respect and support…


Tedeschi Trucks Band – Hobby Center for the Performing Arts – Houston, TX – Review

Written by Jim Bille – November 06, 2019 Nothing quite like a Tedeschi Trucks Band fix in the middle of the week to break up the 9-5 monotony of the daily work schedule. Kicking off their 2019 fall tour, Tedeschi Trucks Band came back to Houston last week with their soulful / blues infused twelve-piece…
