On Tour

DSO | Cuthbert Amphitheater | Review

Cuthbert Amphitheater on a beautiful early fall evening, a waxing moon shining through low scattered  clouds, and Dark Star Orchestra kicking off the Fall Tour West...Nope, doesn't get much better than that.  Although known for their awesome recreations of historic Grateful Dead shows, every now and then  DSO will roll their own set lists at their audience like a pair of loaded dice and

The New Deal | Ogden Theater | Review

The genre of Jamtronica has its roots in unexpected places. Filled with elements of jazz, fusion and funk as well as club, dance and techno music. These are the descriptors of Jamtronica heavy weights and progenitors The New Deal. After over a decade of heavy touring and an unexpected hiatus, The New Deal is back and filled inspiration.

Best Coast | The Bluebird Theater | Review

Playful yet angsty, soulful but light; the dual essence of California’s golden coast filled an almost sold out Bluebird Theater Monday night.  If you’ve ever been to the beaches of Los Angeles at night, you know the warm, hazy magic that happens once the sun sets.  The vibe is free, open - but underneath the surface people can be just as broken as they are elsewhere.

Yonder, Greensky, & Fruition on the Rocks

It was a perfect summer day for a bluegrass jamboree on the beautiful stage at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Three powerhouses at the top of the bluegrass music scene were sharing the stage at one of America’s best outdoor venues and the home of the headliner, Yonder Mountain String Band.

Everyone Orchestra | 9/12/2015 | Review

Everyone Orchestra takes its name from its ever-changing roster of participants. Matt Butler’s celebratory circus of improvisation has been going strong for almost fifteen years now. The world-traveled ensemble has hosted Everyone, or just about everyone, it seems. But here’s why, if given the opportunity to go, you should never miss an Everyone Orchestra show:

Widespread Panic | 9/6/2015 | Review

As everyone is winding down from Lockn’, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on Labor Day Weekend in one of my favorite towns in the Midwest, Nashville. I had the opportunity to photograph Widespread Panic for my very first time at the beautiful Ascend Amphitheater for their second night of their two night run over Labor Day weekend. I have to say, that it is true, you should never miss a Sunday show.

Where Nickel Creek Ends, Watkins Family Hour Begins

Sara and Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek created Watkins Family Hour over a decade ago to introduce new material and explore classic folk tunes. 

Slightly Stoopid | 8/29/15 | Review/Photos

On such a beautiful evening right across the river, the lineup was stacked and the anticipation was high.  All three of these bands by themselves would have drawn a huge crowd, but you throw them all together and no one wanted to miss this one.  They could all be included in the soundtrack of my adolescence, and even to this day.  I grew up breaking rules to these guys, and never skip the chance to catch a show of theirs.  The Expendables kicked o

Creede's Big River Band Shook the Roof Over Labor Day

Over the Labor Day weekend, I was treated to a special concert at the Creede, CO, Ruth Humphries Brown Theatre. Musician and owner of Big River Music, Courtney La Zier invited me up. I couldn’t resist his enthusiasm.

Josh Abbott Band is a Perfect Fit for Cowboy Hats and Baseball Caps

This is a very big year for the Josh Abbott Band. The “Where’s the Party” tour is its largest to date, attracting new fans at every stop. The day after premiering the new single “Amnesia” on Sirius XM radio, the Texas band returned to Joe’s Bar in Chicago.
