It’s the time a year where we give to people in need, and it’s something at least to counterbalance the store stampedes, snow-laden traffic and rude family members. And in the spirit of giving, we have a fun way to hook someone up in need. If you’re on the streets, your life is what you […]

Dear Santa, Here is my Christmas list. I’d like The Figgs to open a show at SPAC. They are one of America’s best bands and hail from Saratoga. Not to mention it just makes good business sense. Put Super 400 in the Eddie’s Hall of Fame. Incredible songs, musicianship and devotion to the musical community. […]

Considering that I was born in Boston, and grew up in the Boston Area, I am very excited to pick the brains of the Boston based powerhouse known as The Elovaters. Currently, these guys are just blowing up reggae scene coast to coast after some amazing momentum prior to COVID. It would seem to me […]

This second part to the LIFEEE Behind Bars Rap Battle also took place in a secret location. Personally, I love the mystery, it makes the experience all that much more exciting. Before the two remaining battles in this series took place we had several performances. I was stoked to see Ready Rah live, as I […]

One of the many badges a band as long in the tooth as Maryland’s Clutch carries around is an absolutely evident confidence.

It was great to be back at The Egg for the first time in over a year and a half, especially for an enjoyable reason (the last was for a memorial service for Greg Haymes).  This time, it was for music, a huge part of Greg’s life.  Andrew Heissler, aka Pokey LaFarge was making his […]

The Egg in Albany, filled as fans scrambled in, each one, eggcited about seeing Kenny Wayne Shepherd. As I spoke to those waiting for the show, it occurred to me how many of these fans have seen this band before–many times before.  True followers, they came knowing what to eggspect, and they were not disappointed. […]

Music is an alter ego. Even when you use your own name and wear your own face, when you go up on that stage, you become somebody else. You become a performer. No matter how absolutely zen you are, you shift your mindset into that of the best musician you can be. And that persona […]

There is something in music that’s greater than three chords and 4/4 time. Okay, so even within music there’s something better than that. But what I mean is that, what comes from voices and instruments really summons a thing, a spirit, if you will, and those who take up their voices and those instruments conjure […]
