Thanks for checking us out again, we’re proud to be part of Xperience, the hottest thing going on for the Capital Region next to Gov. Cuomo’s trips to Puerto Rico. I planned on doing a continuation from the last issue on what I called “Musical Royalty,” where music acts are given (somewhat) proper titles to […]

‘All we need is love’. The love that was felt all around Revolution Hall Saturday, March 7, was pure, deep, and electrifying. This was all in part to the volunteers, event organizers, concert goers, and the musicians who took part in the “7th Annual Dustin Mele Memorial Concert”. In 2013, Dustin Mele, the son of […]

Beatin’ The Odds Not Quite ‘Country”, not full ‘rock’-Southern Rock- What is it? Southern rock has one foot in the blues, the other in country music, and it all comes together in a unique style. There’s Wet Willie, The Marshall Tucker Band, Molly Hatchet, and of course, The Allman Brothers Band. Southern rock rocks hard […]
