Delta Rose

 

Delta Rose….

The 4 piece known as Delta Rose is without question, full on bluesy, heavy, Rock n Roll. You can quote me on this “They are oozing Bluesy, ballsy, swagger, with the chops to back it up”. I didn’t quite know what to expect from them in a live performance. I was not disappointed in the least! Couldn’t have been, they wouldn’t have allowed it. From the rad originals such as “Chew me up”, or “Ain’t dead yet”, to the cover of Uncle Ted’s “Stranglehold”… they never missed a beat and put on for lack of a better term “one hell of a show”. The cover of Stranglehold by the way, was by far and away the best I’ve ever heard anyone do it!! Spencer Krasch, Forrest Goss, Steven Aulcy, and Mikey Herrea really know how to bring a show to the audience. This band has quickly become a top 5 for me!! Get the new Album “Golden”, and find everything you need at www.DeltaRoseUSA.com. Do not miss them!!

Diamond Lane

Diamond Lane…

Well what can I say about these lads? I became aware of the powerhouse that is Diamond Lane just about two years ago and immediately became a fan. This was just another case of finding a new band that I really dug and wondering when/if I might see them live…. Fast forward to a few days ago and I got what I wanted and then some!! Holy shitballs!! I watched this 5 piece light The Jam spot on fire. Slamming drums provided by Dave Vandiggity. Thundering bass by Ray Zhang. Screeching, melt your face guitars slung by Jarret Reis and Ian Mclaren. Last but certainly not least the wailing vocals of Brandon Baumann. I couldn’t stop smiling through the entire performance!! Watching these guys on stage was a gift. Consummate professionals. Not only were the songs played perfectly, but the band was having fun. Isn’t that what it’s all about??!! Watching them play off of one another was another treat. The best compliment I feel I can pay a band is telling them they are doing it right.

Diamond Lane… You are doing it right! They have cemented their place firmly in my top 5 and it will be hard to knock em loose. Get the Album “TERRORIZOR”. Everything you need is at www.diamondlanerocks.com





One thing I would like to add to this review is a massive thank you to both bands. There was an absolute horrible turnout for the show here in Albz. I myself was embarrassed. Maybe 5 people there when these guys took the stage. The thank you is for playing like there was 5 thousand. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

We wait with anticipation all year long for what we call “Concert Season”, With us it all begins with Rocklahoma. This 3 day outdoor festival held in Pryor, Oklahoma is going on its 9th year and has been gaining momentum every year with record breaking crowds topping the previous year.

The festival is a Rock n Roll Buffet, From Current National bands all the way to the local unsigned bands that are on their way up. It is non-stop action on 3 stages on the official festival grounds as well as Camp Jager and the Axis stage in the campgrounds which are always popular stops for the diehards between acts or after most have faded off to bed in their tents or R.V.

For those of you that have never been able to make it to Rocklahoma and are worried about fitting in with the locals, Don’t worry, in all the years I have been to Rocklahoma I have yet to see one single fight, not saying there hasn’t been any trouble, but I have done it all and I have never seen it. It’s more of a family vibe everywhere you go, everyone is your friend because we are all here for the same reason, great Rock n Roll and hanging out with like minded people. Needless to say I have met some of the greatest people at Rocklahoma and our Rock n Roll family grows bigger, and bigger every year.

Texas Hippie Coalition 4/11/15

Nobody could ever say that Texas Hippie Coalition does not have a large and devoted fan base.  The Diamond Ballroom was full of the THC fans/family, all proudly wearing their leather and THC patches.  The show started out with 3 great local bands (Octave Jaw, Soul Torrent, and Another Round) getting the fans primed and ready for their THC.  As soon as the crowd spotted Cord towards the back of the stage, they knew it was almost time.  At that point the THC…THC…THC…chant began.  Their show is always impressive and the energy from John and Cord is awesome.  Of course it is awesome to have OKC’s own Timmy Braun back home for a show.  It is always great to see a local boy on that stage and touring the country.  There is no denying that Big Daddy Rich loves what he does, and he belongs on that stage.  I for one can’t wait for the next THC show.  Check them out if you haven’t!!DSC_0398 DSC_0365 DSC_0351 DSC_0183 DSC_0204 DSC_0210 DSC_0240 DSC_0260 DSC_0087 DSC_0103 DSC_0156

Bush in OKC 3/10/15

Bush performed on a Tuesday night in Oklahoma City at the Diamond Ballroom to a sold out crowd.  It was awesome to see that the local crowd will go out in full force to support touring bands in the middle of the week. They performed an energy packed, 20 song set.  The fans were sure to hear their favorite.  The crowd loved every minute of it.  The energy level in that building was definitely turned up to max.  I can’t wait til the next time I get to catch a Bush show.  I know that OKC can’t wait til the next time they come to town.  If you haven’t caught a Bush show, you don’t know what you’re missing.  If they are playing a show close to where you live, do yourself a favor and get there!! You will not be disappointed.  DSC_0868 DSC_0726 DSC_0706DSC_0895DSC_0883 DSC_0669 DSC_0635 DSC_0623 DSC_0599 DSC_0501 DSC_0486 DSC_0475 DSC_0336 DSC_0357 DSC_0391 DSC_0427 DSC_0446 DSC_0001 DSC_0293 DSC_0248 DSC_0076 DSC_0051 DSC_0013 (2)

Winter Jam OKC 3/7/15

I arrived to the Chesapeake Energy Arena around 2:00 in the afternoon, and the crowd of people outside was already wrapping over half way around the building.  The doors didn’t even open until 5:00.  There were youth groups playing card games, as well as families with children coloring in coloring books to pass the time.

Once the doors opened and people started filling the arena, it wasn’t long til the building was at capacity.  The electricity and sheer power of the musical performances and artists that took the stage was breathtaking.  The speakers were so moving and powerful.  I was inspired and in awe of the people who filled the building.  This is the type of celebration that attracts people from all walks of life.  It reaffirms your faith in humanity and this world when you see the true and honest faith that filled that building.  I for one am honored to have been able to be present for this event.  I am grateful that I was able to witness this spectacular.

BleachBANGS/All That Remains

After the intro of “Jump Around” by House of Pain, All That Remains took
the stage for the first show on their headlining tour to promote the
Upcoming 7th album The Order of Things, which releases February 24th.
Of course, as soon as they took the stage the crowd went nuts.  They
started off the night with “No Knock”, a single from the new album,
which was awesome.  They played a perfect mix of the crowd favorites as
well as adding a few of the new songs as well.  The best part of the
evening for me was when Phil told the crowd to get out their cell phones
and record the song “Pernicious”.  He said this was the first time fans
had heard it, and it was absolutely AWESOME!!!  He told the fans to put
that shit on You Tube, and they did just that.  I highly suggest looking
it up and giving it a listen, you will not be disappointed.  And don’t
forget to get the album on February 24th, if you haven’t pre-ordered it
already.  It will be worth it.  Make plans to go to their live show if
they are coming to your town.

Butcher Babies Oklahoma City

You would have never been able to tell it was a Tuesday night when the Butcher Babies, Hatebreed, and Black Label Society came to town. Upon pulling into the parking lot, the line to get in the Diamond Ballroom In Oklahoma City  was almost all the way to the road. The venue was so packed with people you would have thought it was a weekend for sure.

The Butcher Babies are absolutely beautiful women; however, their show is anything but “glamorous”.  They bring their own brand of in your face metal that will knock you off your feet.  Don’t think for half a second that since they are “girls” that you won’t get all the metal you can handle.  These ladies will deliver more metal than you can handle.  They are kicking ass and taking names.  I was blown away the first time I saw the Butcher Babies, and they have only gotten better.  I can’t say enough great things about this band.  You just have to check them out for yourself.  If these ladies are in concert anywhere near you, do yourself a favor and catch their show. You will not be disappointed!!
