A Revival Like No Other At Cosmic Charlie’s

The Kentucky music family came together to celebrate St. Patty’s Day with the music of Creedence Clearwater Revival as the soundtrack.

From well-known artists to supporters of this site that have nearly no experience performing, this bill was truly a community effort and that was absolutely by design.

Now you may ask why would I give performance spots to someone with little to no experience. It’s really simple, I enjoy helping people. Especially those that are supportive of me. I’m not saying that the next Elvis Presley played on Sunday, but several folks got the opportunity to not only perform but to perform to a crowd. If I spark one person to take a chance on a dream, then I’ve already won. (more…)

You Wanted It, You Got It…One Last Time…KISS Invades Louisville!

Having been a KISS fan since 1977, I’ve probably seen them in concert close to twenty times…and along the way, I’ve gotten a glimpse into the inner workings of the KISS machine. I have seen the original line-up in makeup, and the other various versions of KISS in and out of makeup. One common denominator in all of those versions is that they have always tried to deliver a great show for their fans and Tuesday night at the KFC Yum Center in Louisville, KY was no exception.

KISS descended upon the stage opening with “Detroit Rock City” (no big surprise there) amidst an arsenal of fire and flames. They came out guns a blazing, delivering more pyro than any KISS show up to this tour. The galloping notes of “DRC” start and the mighty KISS Army screams as this two-hour Rock‘N’Roll journey begins. KISS was definitely trying to leave their mark on this “End of The Road World Tour.” (more…)

Nashville Is Officially Blue! The Kentucky Takeover At Marathon Music Works Brought The Party And The Soundtrack!

Nashville, Tennessee is considered the home of Country Music. So when I was approached by Daniel Collins (Whiskey Soldier) to help develop a Kentucky Takeover that would showcase Kentucky Musicians during the SEC Tournament, it was a no-brainer. I’m in. Let’s make a new tradition and shoehorn Kentucky into Nashville!

After several phone calls and many emails, a date was set and the wheels began spinning quickly. Which is a positive sign for sure. The only drawback to scheduling during the SEC Tournament, is you don’t know seeding and game times. Turns out that Kentucky played at 6pm, when the Kentucky Takeover was to begin. (more…)

Metal Legends Metallica Invade The KFC YUM Center For A Record Setting Night!

Few names in music are bigger than that of Metallica. The San Francisco thrash metal band that threw a middle finger in the air and took the Frank Sinatra route. They did things their way and that road eventually led to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.

The band wanted their first release to be titled, “Metal Up Your A$$,” but the band was told by their label that would not fly. The bands complied by naming it ‘Kill ‘Em All”, a nod to their lack of respect to the suits at the label.

Their partying ability was legendary and the band lived the rock’n’roll lifestyle to the full extent. Thankfully they made it through and continued to create some of the most iconic music of my generation.

Josh Turner And Mo Pitney Delight The East KY Expo in Pikeville

Why was it a good night to get in out of the rain at the East Kentucky Expo Center? I’ll tell you why, Josh Turner brought Mo Pitney along for a night of traditional country music.

Mo Pitney was up first. He took the stage with just his voice and a guitar. For the next few minutes he entertained the crowd with his original tunes and some great Roger Miller covers. Mo grew up playing bluegrass, and some compare his roots and voice to Kentucky’s own, Keith Whitley. He was the perfect choice to open this night. No frills just a man and his guitar singing some super cool tunes!

Who Is The Next Star From Kentucky?

I want to tell you folks a little story.

About 10 years or so ago, there was a show in Campton, Kentucky. Campton’s pride at the time was Stitch Rivet. Also on the bill were Lexington’s Valrosa and Florida’s Stereoside.

That show was important for a whole slew of reasons, but I want to tell a story about a young man that rocked out as hard as anyone that day. This young man absolutely loved Stitch Rivet and Valrosa. He was front and center for most of the show. Just so happens, this young man’s Uncle (more…)
