Ray LaMontagne + some friends (My Morning Jacket) are coming to Vegas! September 16!

1 Mar

Vegas, time to wake up, set your alarm and make sure you get tickets to see the man, Ray LaMontagne, on September 16 at the Pearl at Palms. Normally I wouldn’t be this excited about a show (okay, who are we kidding, I freaking love Ray LaMontagne) but this one is going to be a special one as LaMontagne will be joined by his backing band consisting of Tommy Blankenship, Carl Broemel, Bo Koster, and Patrick Hallahan … aka the gents from My Morning Jacket (another band I love) minus Jim James. As a music fan you have to be salivating at the prospect of what this show will be like! Add in that the Pearl’s acoustics are off the charts amazing and that this is a big underplay and you have something special.
Tickets go on-sale Friday, March 4th at noon.

New Music: Ray LaMontagne – “Airwaves”

20 Mar

Ray LaMontagne has dropped a second track off his upcoming album, Supernova. This one titled “Airwaves” is much more calming and relaxing from “Supernova,” the first single that dropped last month.

New Music: Ray LaMontagne – “Supernova” – Thanks Dan Auerbach!

24 Feb

Music Monday it is! Give a listen here to “Supernova” the first single off Ray LaMontagne’s upcoming album, which bares the same name and is due out May 6. Notice a little bit more of an upbeat and refreshing sound? Credit that to Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys who produced the LP.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 12 Days – Artist of the Day: Ray LaMontagne

28 May

To this day, Ray LaMontagne’s debut disc, Trouble, is by far one of my favorites of all time.  Now four discs, a Grammy and a little over decade after his journey into the world of music, the gifted singer-songwriter brings his sweet sound to Bonnaroo.  If you haven’t yet had the chance to hear LaMontagne’s raspy voice live, it is a must for every music aficionado.

Friday 6:15 PM – 7:45 PM – Which Stage

Bonnaroo X Schedule Released Today

13 May


Finally the Bonnaroo schedule has been released! Click HERE to take a look. As expected when the schedule came out, there are  many many conflicts and overlaps with artists and set times. Of course for me there are the staple artists that are marked as must sees (Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident, Buffalo Springfield, Mumford & Sons, Gregg Allman, Robert Plant, G. Love, The Black Keys, Warren Haynes, etc.) and after that, time to figure out the rest. Who knows, my ideal schedule today may end up being completely different when I arrive. All I know is there is a ton of great music and I can’t wait to be surrounded by 90,000 of my new closest friends.


Playlist: May Music

5 May

The inspiration for this month’s playlist has to do 100% with the idea of hopping in the car, cranking up the volume and listening to these tracks with the windows down and wind blowing in your face.  There is some new music scattered in throughout the playlist and chances are good I’ve mentioned all the artists on the blog in some regard.

Hope you like May Music!

Cheers!
