CONCERT RECAP: Thirty Seconds to Mars delivers successful “Monolith Tour” to Shoreline Amphitheater

July 19, 2018

Last night was quite a night at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View.  Thirty Seconds to Summer delivered their highly praised Monolith Tour to a packed crowd.  In addition, the tour features Walk the Moon, K.Flay and Welshly Arms.   The show kicked off with the bluesy rockin set of Welshly Arms. This is one kick ass band and we loved catching them earlier this year at BottleRock Napa Festival. They recently released their debut album No Place is Home last month. The album spotlights their alternative rock dipped in just the right amount of gospel, soul and blues. You are instantly drawn into their music which highlights their midwestern roots. Their live performance enhances their music with their infectious energy. Next up was K.Flay as she brought to life a blend of alternative indie hip hop. She got the crowd off their feet and into a groove. The energy of the crowd grew as Walk the Moon took the stage. They brought the positive feel good, booty shakin vibes to life. The fans were singing along to [Read More]

CONCERT REVIEW: Static and Surrender ‘Electrifies’ @ Hollywood’s Hotel Café

July 17, 2018

Written by Jessica Klausing Bay area rockers Static and Surrender are on tour throughout California in honor of their debut album release. Their energetic riffs and rhythms are on par with the alternative superstar acts such as Lifehouse and Matchbox Twenty. Jeff Campbell (lead vocals, guitar) backed by John Schuman (drums), Adam Schuman (guitar, vocals), and Lauren Stockner (bass player) delivered a passionate performance at Hollywood’s Hotel Café. Jeff Campbell puts his heart into each song and it certainly shows. He kept the set running smoothly and without interruption for the majority of the night. Opening up with “Killing The Vibe” Campbell belts a powerful vocal delivery that commands the attention in a room while his band mates exerted lighting-in-a-bottle energy around the small stage with ease. With such a strong reaction from the crowd, the level of energy and intensity only grew with each song.  The next song, “If Only We Could Sleep” was no exception.  John Schuman pounded the drums as if his very life depended on it! His intensity was so great, [Read More]

Greta Van Fleet; like a pair of shock paddles resuscitating the life of Rock n Roll

June 26, 2018

  Within the last decade,  we have seen many bands deliver some good blips on the heartline of the rock and roll, but none as huge as the spike that Greta Van Fleet is making.  They are bringing a full on resuscitation to ROCK ‘N ROLL so get ready, hang on and enjoy the ride. We recently caught Greta Van Fleet perform at the beautiful intimate outdoor venue of John Anson Ford Amphitheater in Hollywood. The venue is situated in the rugged beauty of an LA County regional park. The setting was superb and as the bands took the stage, the sound was spot on. The crowd was greeted with a high energy gritty alt-rock set from SlothRust, LA/Brooklyn based three piece band. Their music is a great blend of 90’s grunge, garage punk, and alternative rock. The crowd grew to capacity as Greta Van Fleet were to take the stage. The excitement raced through the crowd as the lights dimmed and the band entered. From the first note to the last, the energy was [Read More]

Fuzzy Knight’s Blowin Smoke Rhythm & Blues band packs Harvelle’s with fun

June 26, 2018

  Patrick O’Heffernan (Santa Monica, CA) If you like blues, dancing, and having fun there is no better band for you than Fuzzy Knight’s Blowin’ Smoke Rhythm & Blues Band with the Smokettes, and there is no better place to see them than at Harvelle’s in Santa Monica where I saw him Saturday night.  Knight grew up in St. Louis and witnessed almost all of the great R&B touring revues like Ray Charles, Ike Turner & the Kings of Rhythm, James Brown, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, and so many more. That experience taught him lessons in the blues and in pleasing crowds that he uses every minute he is on stage. He was on stage Saturday night at Harvelle’s Saturday night for a lot of minutes with his full band a four piece horn section plus the fabulous Smokettes (and they ae fabulous – any one of these ladies could have been the lead singer).  Knight led the band from the back corner, in the groove with seasoned baselines and throaty vocals while drummer Carl [Read More]
