The Struts in Oklahoma City

IMG_8922

I was lucky enough to cover The Struts show in Oklahoma City over the weekend.  There were two other rather large events going on in Oklahoma City that same night, so the crowd was smaller than I think The Struts deserved, but that didn’t stop them from giving their all to the crowd that was there.

The Struts consists of vocalist Luke Spiller, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliot, and drummer Gethin Davies.  Forming in 2010 makes them a relatively young band; however, you would never be able to guess that.  These guys grab your attention as son as they take the stage.  They are absolutely mesmerizing.  Luke Spiller is such a commanding front man.  He remains engaged with the crowd throughout the entire set.  In this day and age where alot of bands are getting into ruts of just getting on stage, performing their songs, and moving onto their next show, it is refreshing and enlightening to see a band who seems to genuinely love their craft and wants the crowd to become involved with their music.

Check out the bands website at www.thestruts.com for the latest tour dates, tickets, merch store, and links to their social media pages. I give The Struts 5 stars!!  Please check out their show while they are on tour, you will be glad you did.

Third Eye Blind

Third Eye Blind recently made a stop in Oklahoma City on their Dopamine tour.  The show was at Oklahoma City’s newest music venue The Criterion.  I was excited to be able to finally see Third Eye Blind as well as our new venue.  The indie rock, three piece band called Bad, Bad Hats from Minneapolis opened the show.  They were very impressive and had a very mellow, unique sound.  They are a young group, but you would never guess that listening to them.  They are very talented.

Third Eye Blind recently released their 5th studio album called Dopamine.  With the band forming in 1993 and releasing their first album in 1997, these guys have been at it for a while.  The venue was packed by the time 3EB took the stage.  The fans were definitely not disappointed.  3EB took the stage with a dark, dramatically backlight stage for their first song.  You could tell the ladies in the crowd were ready for all the lights to come on so they could get a visual of the band.  This was a high energy, awesome show.  I was very glad to see how engaged Stephan was with the crowd throughout the evening.  He took time to talk to the crowd rather than just go from one song to another.  Overall I was very impressed, and I will absolutely make it to their sow the next time they come through town.

Check out the Third Eye Blind website www.thirdeyeblind.com for updates on tour dates, links to their social media pages, and their merchandise shop.

Locust Grove 03/26/16

Zain Smith

Vincent Charles Lindstrom

Quentin Williams

Joey Mandigo

 

For months my family and I have anxiously awaited March 26th. This was when we would finally get to see Locust Grove’s debut show at the Diamond Ballroom.

I had a real good idea of what to expect, after all each member of this band is no stranger to the music scene on Oklahoma.

From the moment they walked on stage with the confidence of seasoned musicians my heart was pounding and I couldn’t get the stupid smile off of my face!

And my hat is off to Zain, originally known for his guitar playing in Anti-Mortem, he is not only playing guitar but has taken on the lead vocals duty as well.  And I must say did an awesome job at both.

I’m familiar with Vince from Siva Addiction and of course Zain from Anti-Mortem, But Quentin and Joey were new to me and I had no idea what to expect.  After seeing them, they were the perfect choice for this band that I guarantee you will be hearing a lot about in the near future, I mean what band lands on the Rocklahoma roster before they have even played a single show?  Locust Grove that’s who!

These guys took their time and made sure they did it right. Lots of practice and songwriting sessions went into the preparation for this night. When they start touring, make sure you check them out. If energy packed, in your face music is what you want, that is exactly what you’ll get.

Wildways new album “Into the Wild”

 

 

Artery Recordings artist Wildways are set to release their new album “Into The Wild” on March 25th, 2016.  Wildways signed with Artery Recordings in January of 2016, and in early February they released their video for their song “Faka Faka Yeah”.  The band consists of: Toli – vox, Sergey – guitar, Chocoslayc – guitar, Harry – bass, and Kery – drums.

The album begin with the song “Skins”.  This song is a great way to start the album.  It begins with a melodic, instrumental intro, which lulls you into submission, and immediately grabs you by the throat and makes you pay attention.  This song alone shows you that this album is not going to be boring.  It is very difficult to fit this band into a definite genre, as they have such diversity on this album.  When you hear the second track on the album called “3 Seconds To Go”, it kicks you in the teeth and rocks hard.  Then you hear track 11 “Wings”, and it is what I would dare to say is a ballad.  Personally, my two favorite tracks on this album are “Princess”, which also contains beautiful guest female vocals, and “Slow Motion”, which flows so well, and has a groovy feel for me at the beginning of the chorus.  There is not a bad song on this album.  Even my least favorite song, “Faka Faka Yeah”, is still very catchy.

Wildways gives you a very balanced mix of vocals, growling, rapping, with a hint of techno.  They have accomplished the blending of these different sounds and turned it into something that is very good to the ears.  This album is enjoyable from beginning to end.

Head over to their website www.wildwaysofficial.com to check out tour dates, links to their social media pages, and their merch store to order all things Wildways.  Their album will be available on ITunes, Google Play, Amazon MP3, and MerchNow.  Get over and get this album!!!

Wildways “Into The Wild” track list:

  1. Skins
  2. 3 Seconds To Go
  3. Faka Faka Yeah
  4. Sirens
  5. What You Feel
  6. Slow Motion
  7. D.O.I.T.
  8. Princess
  9. Don’t Give Up Your Guns
  10. Illusions & Mirrors
  11. Wings
  12. Not Alone

Nothing brings America together like Bud Light and nothing brings rock fans together like Rocklahoma. That’s why we’ve formed the Bud Light Party – a party for everyone. We are the fake political party America needs right now and we’re stopping by Rocklahoma to supply ice cold beer all weekend long. Because no matter where we stand on the issues, we all sit on the bar stools with our hands raised in the air listening to our favorite rock bands. America has seen the light, and there’s a Bud in front of it.

Nightwish in Oklahoma City at the Diamond Ballroom

Mere words cannot describe the experience I recently had when I attended the Nightwish show with special guests Sonata Arctica and Delain in Oklahoma City at the Diamond Ballroom.  I will admit I have not seen any of these three bands live.  I have been missing out!!  These three bands together make up the perfect tour.  They perfectly accompany each other.

Nightwish has a sound that is so beautiful.  It is a larger and grand sound that I feel is so rare and very much unlike the newer music being released by a majority of bands now a days.  This band still completely built on pure talent and love of the music and it shows.  Please get out and see them if they are on tour near you.  This was an absolutely amazing and inspiring experience.  Check out their website for tour dates, and links to their social media sites, fan clubs, partners, and endorsers at www.nightwish.com.

Bonfire to Release New Double Album “Pearls” via UDR Music

Celebrating 30 Years – BONFIRE to Release New Double Album “Pearls” via UDR Music
 
Out March 25, 2016 | Pre-Order via iTunes and Amazon

 

After the successful release of 2015’s Glörious, Bavarian hard rock legends BONFIRE are proving they still have a great future to come – this year, the band celebrates 30 years on stage! Throughout their career, BONFIRE have performed over 1,500 concerts worldwide with artists such as Whitesnake, Judas Priest and ZZ Top. The eternal burning flame – BONFIRE founder, composer, guitarist and mastermind Hans Ziller – now brings his bandmates David Reece (vocals, ex- Accept), Frank Pané (lead guitar), Ronnie Parkes (bass and vocals) and Tim Breideband (drums) into the next phase.
To celebrate 30 years of rock and metal, BONFIRE is pleased to present a new “best of” double album, Pearls, out March 25, 2016 via UDR Music. This marks the band’s very first double album since their formation in 1986. Pre-orders are available via iTunes and Amazon.
Pearls features two discs of selections spanning BONFIRE‘s 14 studio and 6 live releases – one set of newly-recorded crunching classics and one set of favorites performed with an orchestra – resoundingly reintroducing the rock world to a band who have always delivered the perfect mixture of hard, heavy and melodic rock (think of a heady rock-tail featuring elements of the LA metal scene but firmly forged in the classic iron-clad elements of German giants such as Scorpions, Uli Jon Roth and Accept). The time is absolutely right for BONFIRE to re-ignite worldwide with this platinum-plated classic collection.
