SPOTLIGHT BAND: Time to get hooked on Australian rockers, The Lazys

July 11, 2018

I truly get frustrated when music lovers comment about Rock n Roll being dead. There are so many amazingly talented bands out there that are definitely carrying the rock n roll torch high and mighty. One of those bands are the Australian rockers The Lazys. This is no new band as they have been pounding the pavement and paying their dues since 2006, “where Leon Harrison and Matty Morris met while playing in local garage bands.”  Fast forward to 2018 and they are making an impact with their balls to the wall album, Tropical Hazards. It delivers high octane riff heavy rock tracks that will grab your attention in an instant. The Lazys are: Leon Harrison – Vocals Matty Morris – Lead Guitar Glenn Williams – Bass Liam Shearer – Rhythm Guitar Andy Nielsen – Drums Genre: straight up, non-stop Rock n Roll Music: Tropical Hazards released on February 16, 2018.

June 8, 2018

  Roses Unread have recently released a music video for their powerful track, After All. The song is off their Vultures EP and it is a great one! Vocalist Allison tells us more about the video, Yes, we have a brand new video entitled After All, which is our second single off of the Vultures EP. It was released earlier in the year. We actually had a show of ours filmed by Justin Talley, AKA-Seiji. It was filmed in our home town, Jackson, TN at a bar/venue called The Naked Turtle. We had a lot of friends, family (fans) come out and be in the video with us. We also filmed a part of it on my swing in my front yard where I write all my poetry and lyrics. It’s a very personal song and video.   The song is a great track and you can’t help but feel the energy and passion as Allison sings. We can only imagine hard it was to capture all of that in the recording. Allison explains about [Read More]

Night Ranger returns for hometown San Francisco show and delivers crowd pleasing set!

April 8, 2018

Fans braved the torrential rains of a Friday night in San Francisco to step back in time and witness an incredible performance by Night Ranger at the legendary Fillmore. The fans welcomed home Night Ranger with a packed venue and they were ready to rock. The stage was set and as the lights dimmed, the fans went wild as they took the stage. From that moment on, it was non-stop rockin for the crowd. Night Ranger played all the fan favorites, a couple Damn Yankees hits, as well as my favorite new  song, Somehow, Someway off their latest album, Don’t Let Up which was released March 2017. It was a well rounded set that had everyone singing along and enjoying being “in the moment” at a concert. Check out some photos of their set by our Rockin Ryan: Night Ranger continues out on their tour next Friday with a show at the Capitol Theater in Clearwater, Florida.

From the first step onto the Regency floor, the band unleashed a heaping dose of adrenaline that fueled the crowd into an energetic frenzy!  The band was as electrifying as their new album, produced by Grammy Award-winning Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse). They used every inch of that stage, jumping and kicking, to deliver a balls-to-the-wall performance, complete with jaw dropping guitar shreds, powerful commanding vocals and fist-pumping anthems.
