Tom Keifer Of Cinderella Brings His Tour To Lexington On October 6th. Kentucky’s Kiss Kiss Bang Opens The Night!

Best known as the singer/songwriter/guitarist of Cinderella, TOM KEIFER once sang, “You’re only going once around the ride.” He’s proving that theory wrong with the highly anticipated release of THE WAY LIFE GOES – DELUXE EDITION, an expanded compilation of his critically acclaimed solo debut album, THE WAY LIFE GOES, chock full of bonus content and special artwork.

KEIFER and his bandmates (#keiferband: Tony Higbee/guitars and vocals, Billy Mercer/bass and vocals, Savannah Keifer/vocals, percussion and piano, Kendra Chantelle/vocals and percussion, now along with new band members Jarred Pope/drums, Kory Myers/keyboards and vocals) have been touring in support of THE WAY LIFE GOES ever since its release and they’re still not showing any signs of stopping.

The trek lands in Lexington, KY on Friday, October 6 at the Manchester Music Hall. You can pick up tickets here.

As an added bonus, Kentucky’s Kiss Kiss Bang has been added as an opener. Get there early and catch their set.

We will be there and we hope to see you there!

Louder Than Life Returns To Louisville For It’s 4th Year Of Controlled Chaos

With the college basketball scandal that broke last week, Louisville needed a reason to smile and let go. Thankfully, for the 2nd week in a row, a Danny Wimmer Festival took over Champions Park.

If only for a couple days, Louder Than Life allowed those who are proud of their city and University to focus on simply having a great time in absolutely beautiful weather. Despite his best efforts, not even Rick Pitino could dampen the spirit of Louisville.

Louisville Goes Beyond Bourbon As The City Hosts Inaugural Bourbon And Beyond Festival

*Photo courtesy of Danny Wimmer Presents*

Kentucky is synonymous with two things. Bourbon and horses. That’s why the Bourbon and Beyond Festival makes so much sense to be held in Louisville. The city is a stop on the Bourbon Trail and it hosts the biggest and best horse race in the world, the Kentucky Derby.

Derby City has drawn a lot of interest of late for their thriving music scene. So it wasn’t really a surprise when Danny Wimmer created a second festival here. Mr. Wimmer is also the man behind Louder Than Life. What was a surprise, for me at least, was how well both festivals have sold being just one week apart.

Be sure and check out our coverage of the 2017 edition of Louder Than Life here.

With Bourbon and Beyond, Mr. Wimmer has created an experience like no other. Sure the music is a large part of it, but it’s everything else that brings value to your ticket. Now that may seem illogical to say, given how expensive the tickets actually cost, but hear me out.

Eastern Kentucky’s Tyler Childers Unleashes ‘Purgatory’

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve likely ran across an article on the latest Kentucky sensation, Tyler Childers. At the very least, you’ve seen Tyler’s name attached to another of Kentucky’s musical treasures in Sturgill Simpson. Some have even compared Tyler’s songwriting abilities to that of yet another Eastern Kentuckian in Chris Stapleton.

I’m here to set the record straight once and for all. Tyler Childers is neither of those artists. He is simply Tyler Childers. His voice is (more…)

Mr. Big – Defying Gravity (Album Review)

Mr. Big is a band that rose to prominence back in 1992. Their sound was all over the radio, MTV and even late night television back in the day. Songs like “To Be With You”, “Just Take My Heart” and “Green-Tinted Sixties Mind” brought them world-wide recognition. Shining a bright light on an incredibly talented group of musicians that includes Eric Martin (Vocals), Billy Sheehan (Bass), Paul Gilbert (Guitar) and Pat Torpey (Drums). Sheehan and Gilbert are often highly ranked on lists of the greatest musicians to ever pick up an instrument and rightfully so. Both are as unique as they come, but their ability to meld their talents behind those great melodies and harmonies makes for a truly dynamic duo. Few others can blend so well, yet still shine through. (more…)
