John Mellencamp Performs at Aronoff Center with Carlene Carter

John Mellencamp was in town with Carlene Carter (June Carter Cash's daughter) for a sold out show at Proctor & Gamble Hall last night. The band played all the classic Mellencamp songs and about half of their new album, Plain Spoken. Mellencamp sounded as good as when I saw him in the early 90's at a festival. Mellencamp is on an extended tour in the United States. Addition images and crowd photos will be posted this week in NBC's music section at NBC Music(dot)com.

Particle with Freekbass at The Southgate House Revival

Particle played a one night only show with Freekbass at The Southgate House Revival. Freekbass opened with his unique brand of funk inspired by his mentor, the legendary Bootsy Collins. After a short break, Particle played their unique styles of jam/funk/prog fusion. I haven't seen Particle since a Phish afterparty show in Long Beach two years ago and have to say they have really stepped it up. A great performance combined with a good venue and crowd made for a fun Thursday night. This Los Angeles band currently features Steve Molitz (keys), Ben Combe (guitar),  Clay Parnell (Bass), and Brandon Draper (Drums). Check out Particle on tour now around the United States and visit Particlepeople(dot)com for more tour information.

The 26th Annual Christmas Jam presented by Warren Haynes returned to the US Cellular Center in Asheville, North Carolina for what was unpredictably one of the most diverse events in the show’s long history.  The night was a mixed bag full of musical collaborations and musical styles.  2014’s event was chock full tributes.  The musicians paid homage to rock and roll legends throughout the night, especially Phish, The Beatles, and Neal Young.

One of the greatest spectacles in American show business once again came to New York City on Thanksgiving Day.  The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, in its 88th year swept through the streets to a live audience of 3.5 million.  That is in addition to the 50 million watching at home on NBC.  The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade features massive helium balloons, floats, guest musical appearances, marching bands, celebrity appearances, and to top it off, Santa Clause.  This magical event has been going on since 1924 and used to feature lions, tigers, camels, bears, goats, and elephants.  Santa Claus himself has always ended the parade except for one year when he started it off.  In recent times, they have added “Falloons” (float and cold air balloon hybrid), Balloonicles (balloon and vehicle hybrid) and “Trycaloons” (part tricycle part balloon).  The parade strolls through Manhattan, the most densely populated borough of New York.  It starts on the west side of Central Park on 77th St. and finishes at Macy’s on 34th St.

A Typical night in Music City continued (#6) with “Fabrizio and the Fever”

Dec. 22, 2014
Nashville, TN.

Review and Photos by Butch Worrell of One Heart Photo

It was musical photography feast time in Nashville last Thursday night! Three venue's, 6 bands were on the table. 12th and Porter's “Toys for Tots” show continued to rock on.
It was time for the finale of the night, “Fabrizio and the Fever”.

Michael Fabrizio is a talented singer/songwriter whose inspiration comes from his life experiences, songs which one can find meaning in and connect with. “Fever” is an eclectic group of musicians which provide the energy, spirit, and passion to complement Michael. In his own words, “We are genre gypsies starting a rock and roll revolution in the Nashville Indie scene.”
