The city of Buffalo has always been treated to some fantastic shows from The Tragically Hip. With its near proximity to Ontario, it is one of the few American cities where The Hip play and fill the larger venues similar to the arenas of their homeland. Saturday night was no different as singer Gord Downie and Company dazzled Continue reading

Todd Rundgren: Ranking The Albums

DSC_8794Todd Rundgren

By: Thom Jennings

Opinions are like…well you know the expression. In anticipation of Todd Rundgren’s upcoming appearance in Buffalo, I thought I would offer my ranking of the TR solo catalogue. No Nazz, no versions of Utopia, no live in concert or best of compilations either, these are all the studio albums released under the TR moniker, (or on occasion Runt or Tr-i). Continue reading

Interview- Kristian Bush

IMGP5900Interview
Kristian Bush
By: Thom Jennings

 

Over the years I have had the pleasure of speaking with many artists, and in the course of my time as a music journalist there have been a few artists that are really special. In simplest terms, I am not just interviewing them; I am somewhat of a “fan boy.”

This interview will always remain at the top of the list. It felt more like a conversation with a fellow music lover and less like a formal interview. That combined with my adoration of Sugarland (which comes through in this interview) made it very special. Continue reading

War of Kings marks the first album for Europe since 2012s Bag Of Bones. War Of Kings features Europe at their finest.

You can hear many of the bands influences throughout such as Rainbow and Deep Purple to name a few. Continue reading

Concert Review
Don Felder

Fallsview Casino
Niagara Falls, Ontario

Friday March 27, 2015
Review: Dave Leary

 

 

On Friday night, Don Felder performed at the Fallsview Casino’s Avalon Ballroom, the second night of a three night run. Billed as “An Evening at the Hotel California”, the former lead guitarist for the Eagles began the show with “Already Gone” and the tone was set. This night was going to be about those classic songs beloved by so many. Continue reading
