April 23, 2018

Sunday night at the historical Mystic Theatre was definitely the place to be. Kiefer Sutherland brought his Reckless 2018 Tour to town and proved the stage is exactly where he should be. The  night kicked off with an impressive set by singer/songwriter Rick Brantley. Rick served up some fun energetic tracks to get the crowd revved up. In addition, he treated us to some emotionally stirring tracks that capture such raw emotion and vulnerability. His poignant song “Hurt People” was a highlight for us. The crowd was ready for more great music and they errupted in cheer as Kiefer Sutherland Band took the stage. The lights dimmed and the energy rose. Kiefer immediately captured the crowd’s attention as he brought his songs to life. His music shines with his passion and brings such a depth of honest emotion to the horizon. His charismatic charm mesmerizes you as his smooth vocals take you away on a musical journey. He is like a shot of great Whiskey, velvety smooth, yet with a rumble and grit that you [Read More]

Sam Pace and the Gilded Grit premiere addictive new single, “He Loved Her”

April 20, 2018

Soulful rockers Sam Pace and the Gilded Grit are set to premiere their addictive new single, “He Loved Her”. The song is the second single off their new LP Judgement Eve which is set for a June 1st release. Sam tells us about how the song came about, I had the riffs and chords all ready but no lyrics yet.   Then one day on tour when we were driving through the desert in New Mexico I put all the lyrics together based on some adventures we’d had and people we’d encountered. One thing is certain when you take a listen, you are immediately hooked on the catchy guitar and then captivated by Sam’s gritty and edgy vocals. His charisma shines as the song continues with an infectious toe tapping vibe! Check out the new song here:   Sam’s new album is sure to bring emotions to life. His music always highlights  his soulful energy and we can truly “feel” what he sings. We asked him about the emotional process during recording of the album [Read More]

April 10, 2018

In January 2018 Swedish metal-band Avatar released their latest record ‘Avatar Country’.  They started their world tour in the US in early 2018 and started off in Europe in March. April 1st they made it back to Munich. Like so many dates on their current tour, the Munich show was sold out. It was the bands’ biggest headline-show in Germany. For fans of theatrics and freakshows, that show was to place to be on Easter Sunday. First act to hit the stage was Old Kerry McKee, probably the quietest act of the night, since he’s a one-man-act. Nevertheless his set was quite entertaining. Second on stage was Hellzapoppin’ Circus Sideshow, a travelling freak-show from Florida. Something you won’t see everyday at a metal-show. Freak-shows actually are hard to find around here. Check out the pics to get an idea of their performance. Avatar had the audiences’ attention from the first minute on. Johannes Eckerström has this ability to lead the people through the show, introducing almost every song with a short story. Avatar have a [Read More]

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.
