Just in time for those Thanksgiving road trips! Apologies for the delay in posting this but here is the November 2015 playlist for you to enjoy. Hope you click play and repeat. Now bring on the holidays!
I’m pretty sure this means more to me but I figured why not share it with everyone. G. Love has announced that on the heels of G. Love & Special Sauce’s 20th Anniversary and in addition to a new album, Sugar, which drops April 22, Jimi Jazz is returning to the group for the first time in eight years and will be on tour this spring! Pumped about this one and if you’re a G. Love fan, you know there is nothing quite like G. Love, the Houseman and Jimi Jazz all on stage together.
Also, give a listen to the first single off the upcoming album, “Nothing Quite Like Home.” Want more? Ben Harper contributes to the track!! Now gimme some Sugar!
Wow this year is FLYING by, I can’t believe it’s already May! With that we get that hot hot heat in Vegas and what better than some new tunes to listen to. This month it’s a mix of some well known groups (so much great music release recently) as well as time to introduce you to some more new acts. I hope you enjoy and find some new favorites along the way.
To help make sure you don’t get a case of the Monday’s, here’s a little Monday Happiness playlist for you! Hope you enjoy and find a few good reasons to smile, dance, laugh, daydream, have fun and get this week started off in a positive way.

Check it out, I had the opportunity to review G. Love & Special Sauce last week at the Silverton. My review appears in the July28 issue of Vegas SEVEN. Hope you enjoy it!
Holy concerts! Vegas is stacked this weekend with a ton of great shows. For me, it’s simple; I’ve been waiting a while to see The Avett Brothers and they are the Friday night selection. Tomorrow, I can’t stray from one of my favorite artists, G. Love. I’m starting to lose count on how many of his shows I’ve been to and if his performance is anything like it was at Bonnaroo, oh man are we in for a treat. Both are performing at the Silverton inside Veil which is almost as intimate of a venue as you can get in Vegas.
Also on Saturday, Queens Of The Stone Age play Cosmopolitan, Soundgarden is back and rocks out at The Joint, INXS is at Pearl at Palms and local jam band about to make it big, Moksha is at House of Blues.
A band I recently started listening to and also had the opportunity to see live at Bonnaroo was The Apache Relay. The roots-rock quartet hailing from Nashville, Tennessee is a band everyone needs to check out, especially if you are a fan of The Avett Brothers, John Butler Trio and The Boss, Bruce Springsteen. On their latest record, American Nomad, the band’s energetic grooves and vocals of Michael Ford Jr. come together to unleash a sound that is contagious from start to finish; bouncing between soft, melodic sing-alongs and upbeat jams. I will also say that while I dig the disc, seeing them live is where it’s at.
And one more reason to love and listen to The Apache Relay, they have already been on the road with one of my favorite artists, G. Love.
