Road Crew is coming to Rock Your World!

April 15, 2013

Last Friday night I had my faith in rock and roll restored by a local rock band that just will have you craving more! Road Crew is from Santa Rosa, California (wine country just north of San Francisco) and Friday they were playing at one of the last venues we have here for enjoying live rock shows, The Last Day Saloon. We are still in shock over news that it will be closing in May.  After the one and only rock station, the FOXX closed just a couple years ago, I was beginning to fear that rock and roll was dying in this area. I found myself making weekly trips to San Francisco, Sacramento and even Los Angeles to make sure I was getting my fix of rock and roll bands. I was so excited to find out that this great rock band, Road Crew was from right here! These four guys are rock and roll personified. They definitely have what it takes to keep the rock scene alive and they have the sound to prove [Read More]

Kick it into high gear with Katalina Kicks!

April 11, 2013

Shhhh…. I have a confession to make… Many of you have known me for my absolute LOVE and ADORATION of Heavy and Hard Rock and Roll but I must confess…..Long ago, there was a time in my wonderful teens and 20’s where I would take breaks from my Hard Rock life to head to San Francisco and catch my fix of Alternative Rock/Grunge-Punk. Oh how I miss those days, but you know what??? I have found a band that just brings all those great memories back…. No, they are not trying to make a comeback from the late 70’s or reinvent themselves from the late 90’s. The best part is they are a current band and you are going to LOVE them!!! Hailing from West London is the effervescent trio of Katalina Kicks! These three guys pack a punch of energy, attitude and just pure raw fun. You can’t help but move to them and just let the energy flow through your veins. Their music just catapults to the next level of adrenaline which is [Read More]
