Ben Folds Five ROCK The Ryman!

So what’s my Ben Folds experience?   My first time hearing anything Ben Folds has composed was while watching the movie “Over The Hedge.”  Ben is all over the animated adventure and adds the right elements for the strange characters, one of them voiced by William Shatner. Speaking of William Shatner, Ben produced one of William’s […]

Cage The Elephant Rock The Island

After leaving the Charter One Pavilion At Northerly Island (formerly Chicago’s Meigs Field for you history buffs out there), I only had one thought left… I haven’t seen a rock show like that in a LONG time! So, here’s what led to this singular thought as I jockeyed for position in the over-crowded over-sold parking […]
