Bob Weir and Wolf Bros Tropical Tuesday Tour in Miami Beach

They say hard work pays off.  Bob Weir is embracing this motto on several fronts.  Particularity, with his tackling tour schedule with 19 shows performed in March, and 21 total in his band's spring tour which ran from February 28 to March 30, not counting the May 3rd date at BeachLife Festival.  On another front, Mr. Weir, at 72, has been posting some impressive exercise videos to his artist Facebook page, showing him and Wolf Bros drummer Jay Lane making steady use of gyms along the tour.

Miami Beach was vibrant and hospitable, with impressive architecture and art at each turn.  Prominent integrations of culture took forms in murals, sculptures, facades, and landscaping.

I am a huge Bowie fan so when I heard about a Bowie tribute at one of our favorite venues, I was all in. As we got closer to the date I found out that this wasn't just your ordinary tribute band. The members were mostly made up of musicians that performed, recorded, and co-wrote with David Bowie!

The show consisted of many Bowie hits with some deeper cuts mixed in as well as "All the Young Dudes" which was a crowd favorite.

Candlebox Rocks Central Florida 25 Years After Their Debut Release

The Plaza Live
Orlando, Florida

90s post-grunge rockers Candlebox brought their explosive show to a packed house at The Plaza Live in Orlando this past week, and they have never sounded better. "Florida has always been a good state for Candlebox," said frontman Kevin Martin. He is the only original member but has been supported by the same tight band for a few years now. The band's monster, self-titled first record was released in 1993, and they have been touring to honor their masterpiece that has stood the test of time. Even Martin is amazed. "I can't believe this record survived 25 years. I'm about to turn 50. It's freakin' me out!" Backed by guitarists Brian Quinn and Island Styles, bassist Adam Kury and drummer Dave Krusen, the Seattle darlings played a 90-minute blazer to a venue of adoring fans.

The excitement was building for months! The unique concert venue was right on the Caribbean, providing a picturesque backdrop for the special event.
