Capture Kentucky Presents: Top 10 Do Not Miss Artists At The 2017 Forecastle Festival

This weekend (July 14th-16th), many artists will make their way to the stage in Louisville. They will be filling the air with their unique sounds at the 15th edition of Louisville’s Forecastle Festival.

You likely know a few of the bigger named acts on the bill. Like Bowling Green, Kentucky’s own Cage The Elephant or Breathitt County’s Sturgill Simpson. You have likely listened to artists like LCD Soundsystem, Weezer, PJ Harvey and NEEDTOBREATHE for years. But with any Festival, it’s worth your time and efforts to catch the earlier, lesser known acts. Why? I’m glad you asked. See, music is a journey. A long-winding road (pun fully intended) that more often than not, passes through many smaller summer festival stages, building fanbases along the way to eventually leading artists to that main stage.

L.A. Guns, Budderside and Sinful Lilly At The Forum In Hazard, KY

Kentucky’s Sinful Lilly got things started with their own brand of (as Fredi Handshoe the band’s front man calls it) guitar-driven, alternative hard rock. The Richmond natives tore through songs like “Wait Your Turn” “Guilty” “Jack” a new song “Devil Music and the Record Machine”. The band put on a high-energy stage show with Nikki Handshoe (bass and vocal) often leaving the stage to mingle with the audience, while never missing a beat! Trey Bledsoe, who is a wild man on the drums as you will in the photos below, rounds out the trio. (more…)

Kentucky Adds Yet Another Band To The Ranks Of Having A Record Deal!

Edmonton, KY – I personally have been singing the praises of this young band to anyone that would listen for quite some time now. In fact, back in 2014, I reviewed their John Brim Tribute Album and covered their CD Release show. If you’d like to read those, you can find them on Unsung Melody here.

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…)

Collective Soul, Our Lady Peace And Tonic Brought Their Traveling Rock n Roll Show To The Corbin Arena

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…)

Is Kentucky The Key To The Future Of Music

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.

Multi-Platinum Selling Mr. Big Does Their Best To Bring Down The Manchester Music Hall

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…)
