Concert Review: Adam Ant – Kings of the Wild Frontier Tour

As the most powerful storm of the season hit on Friday, Feb 17th, it didn’t deter fans from attending a sold out show of Adam Ant’s Kings of the Wild Frontier at The Observatory in Santa Ana. After parking their cars, fans walked over planks of wood created as a bridge due to flooding and headed […]

The Go Go’s Farewell Tour

When I heard the Go Go’s were going to rock in Orange County at the Segerstrom Center of the Arts, I didn’t waste any time and bought the ticket right away. In fact, I bought the VIP ticket. I was like… if it’s true that this is their Farewell Tour then I gotta have a […]

It’s Always a Good Time with Carly Rae Jepsen

It doesn’t matter when or where, when Carly Rae performs it’s always a good time. And I must admit, I strutted on the floor with the rest of the audience when she sang “Good Time” and Call Me Maybe”. I could probably do an epic job lip syncing “Call Me Maybe” at Spike’s Lip Sync […]

EMERALDE, the new Adult Contemporary Pop Group to Watch

You may not have heard of EMERALDE, the new Adult Contemporary Pop group but the duo, Mark Gasbarro and Margie Russomanno are music veterans. Both of these talented artists have been “behind the scenes” in Hollywood film and TV. Mark is a pianist/composer/arranger and is one of the most sought after pianists in the showbiz arena. […]

Lisa Loeb at The Coach House

It’s always a pleasure to watch Lisa Loeb live whether it be an afternoon kid’s show or a night concert. She always sings brilliantly and always make it a point to interact with the audience. I have seen her concert several times and she never fails to entertain me. What you see on stage is […]

Howard Jones Returns to Orange County

Before there was EDM or Electronica there was Howard Jones with his synth/electronica genre, at least in my opinion. Howard Jones, the famed English singer/songwriter who had top 40 hit singles in the UK and his 1984 album Human’s Lib went to number one in the UK. This is not the first time I’ve seen […]

Dancing with Billy Idol

  It was 1983 and I bought my first Billy Idol vinyl album “Rebel Yell“. Fast forward 33 years, he was still rockin’ with his punk/new wave genre at The Observatory Santa Ana last Feb. 21st. It was the last leg of his US tour. In the early ’80s, Idol was a member of the […]

Win a pair tickets to Rio – Duran Duran Tribute Band (House of Blues Anaheim)

I have never covered a Tribute band, but because one of my favorite bands of all-time is Duran Duran, and Rio is, – a Duran Duran tribute band perhaps currently the only high profile, full-time working Duran Duran tribute band in the country it is a no-brainer to cover them. Rio has been billed at some […]

Minnie Driver Performs at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano

“Mesmerized” is the word I will use to describe Minnie Driver’s voice at her concert at The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano last November 26th. Considering it was the night before Thanksgiving, I thought it would be really low key and have less attendance but I was blown away by how many people wanted to […]

Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo 35th Anniversary Tour at the Pacific Amphitheatre

I have always been a fan of Pat Benatar growing up. In fact, I wanted to be her … I wanted to wear the same outfits, style my hair the same, but most of all I wanted to sound and move like her. And that was my fantasy when I used to sing in my […]
