Guns were blazing in Greensboro!
By Douglas White
     The historic Cone Denim theatre in downtown Greensboro, NC roared to life Saturday night, 13 July 2019. The L.A. Guns took to the stage in support of their new album 
"The Devil you know".
    If you're not aware, L.A. Guns have been around with various members, including Axel Rose (playing under his real name William Bailey), since 1983. Traci Guns and lead singer Phil Lewis, (most recently of the "Girls") have performed together off & on since 1987. Their collaboration has produced two Gold records and has sold over six and a half million albums. The Guns lineup has changed more than a professional hockey team. To say that the relationships have been tumultuous is an understatement. Thankfully Lewis & Guns have reunited to create an album that shows neither  has let age hamper their talents. It's only enhanced them.

Dead & Company at The Gorge in George, WA on June 7 and 8, 2019

Here Comes Sunshine

When Dead and Company announced their summer tour it was surprising there were no Canadian dates. Just kidding; it would be a surprise if there were. Dead and Company includes some of the Grateful Dead original members: Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart; joining them are John Mayer, Jeff Chimenti and Oteil Burbridge.
Being a Pacific Northwest resident (from Canada), it was an easy decision to attend the Gorge Amphitheater in George, Washington for the Friday June 7th and Saturday June 8th shows, even though the Pacific Northwest is known for cold rain and sometimes snow. We got lucky with warm days and cool nights.

Don Felder Rocks The Eagles Hits

Disney Epcot
Orlando, FL

The Garden Rocks Concert Series, hosted by Disney Epcot, brings top talent to central Florida in a beautiful mini amphitheater type setting.

On this particular night Don Felder of The Eagles fame was the star, and star he did! Backed by very talented musicians/back up vocalists David Myhre on guitar, bassist Jeff Coffe, keyboardist Timothy Drury, and Chris Ralles on drums, the band was tight and did a wonderful job sounding as close to the original The Eagles music as possible. Felder's vocals are still very strong and his guitar playing is still top notch.

Collective Soul Rocks West Florida Again!

by Michael Yanko
When you find yourself driving three and a half hours to go see a band that you just saw less than a year ago you must have thought they were something special. Collective Soul is one of those bands, and once again they did not disappoint. 
Collective Soul in Clearwater Florida

The beautifully restored vintage Capitol Theatre in downtown Clearwater was totally sold out. It seemed like every person there knew exactly what to expect and the anticipation was high even outside standing in line. 

Once the performance started I don't think the total time that people sat down was more than ten seconds very early in the night. Seeing the band as a stand alone act was a special treat after only having seen them wedged between two other bands last year.
