Lexington, KY – When a meal becomes an experience, it keeps you coming back for more. Now, I’m not simply speaking about atmosphere or service. Both of those were great, but it’s the food that I’m about to rave about. (more…)
Recently I made the trek back to the Corbin Arena for another night at a rock show. This time it was for a trio of bands that dominated the radio waves for several years. The tour included Collective Soul, Our Lady Peace and a band that I feel was heavily underrated in Tonic. (more…)
Now before you go calling me crazy, hear me out. As I type this article, there are already several artists or bands that are currently making an impact in the music industry. For instance, Eastern Kentuckians Chris Stapleton and Sturgill Simpson have country back on track to being a listenable art form again. Louisville’s Bryson Tiller created an entire music genre. Bowling Green’s Cage The Elephant are chart-toppers in the Alternative world and let’s not forget that they also won a Grammy. Edmonton, KY’s Black Stone Cherry continue to carry the classic rock and roll torch. You can also add Louisville’s My Morning Jacket as a festival staple and headliner. Kentucky is a fertile music bed that is about to produce even more artists. So here’s a list of artists on the brink, that we feel you outta get to know sooner, rather than later.
It’s not often that a multi-platinum artist visits a small venue like Manchester Music Hall in Lexington, but when it happens, it’s always special. The dense crowd was hanging onto every word and sang-along much of the night with vocalist Eric Martin of Mr. Big. The fact that you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more talented group than Mr. Big seemingly wasn’t lost on the Lexington crowd. As they all enjoyed the virtuoso performances provided by Paul Gilbert and bass-playing extraordinaire, Billy Sheehan. Lexington was thrilled to host these guys and by the photos, I’m sure you can tell that they were more than happy with their acceptance. Be sure and check out their new album, Defying Gravity on July 21st. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Share away! (more…)
