New Music: O.A.R. – “Taking On The World Today”

7 Jul

Less than a month until O.A.R. releases King and August 2 can’t come soon enough.  Here’s another track off the upcoming album, “Taking On The World Today” which has now become my latest music obsession.  I also listened to the live version the band played at the Dave Matthews Band Caravan a couple weeks ago in Atlantic City and yeah, WINNER!

Dave Matthews Band Caravan: Atlantic City June 24-26 Line-up

9 Mar

So the June 24-26 Dave Matthews Band Caravan line-up for Bader Field in Atlantic City was just released and all I can say is, SICK as in what a group of artists as I start day dreaming about how great these three days will be. Tickets go on sale for Warehouse members March 14 and to the public on March 25. Check out the below for all the artists. I don’t know who to be most excited about, such an amazing group of musicians.  What I do know is From Good Homes will be playing at the festival, love seeing the Jersey rockers on the bill as they just reunited in recent years after a decade hiatus.

Save The Dates: Dave Matthews Band – 2011 Show Dates

23 Feb

Received an email yesterday and it’s posted on the Band website http://www.DaveMatthewsBand.com check out the below:

Dave Matthews Band will host four three-day music festivals across the US this summer. The multi-stage events will feature a wide array of diverse musical talent with Dave Matthews Band performing a headlining set each night. Exact locations, lineups, ticketing and lodging info will be announced soon.

JUNE 24-26…North East/Mid Atlantic

JULY 8-10…Midwest

AUGUST…coming soon!

SEPTEMBER…coming soon!

This gets me excited as the 20th Anniversary plans are starting to come together and officially knowing DMB will not be taking the whole year off is something to look forward to.  Can’t wait to see the exact locations (Atlantic City has been a good rumored location for the East Coast and you can pretty much guarantee that September will be The Gorge) and bands who sign on to partake (guessing Red Light Management, ATO Records and probably Brushfire Records artists will make up a bulk of the acts).  Summer of Music is getting better and better!

Revisited: My First Concert

9 Aug

I was a mere eight years old in December 1989 and found myself at the Atlantic City Convention Center going to my first concert, The Rolling Stones. Of course at eight I couldn’t comprehend what a big deal The Rolling Stones were but I remember Mick Jagger running around like a maniac, gigantic blow-up legs inflating like the floats at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, we somehow wound up backstage and me asking my parents “what’s that smell?” Little did I know then that The Rolling Stones would become one of my favorite bands and that this would be the beginning of my love of music. I’ve been fortunate to have seen The Rolling Stones in three different decades (80s, 90s and 00s). I still have the concert t-shirt from that Steel Wheels tour and now it actually fits and is not used for pajamas.
