Front Row Dave: From The Fans 

January 8, 2011 Gregg Allman and Friends:

It was a fantastic show by Gregg and his new band at UPAC, Kingston, NY.

First listen to the Birds of Flame at the Greenfield Grille in Greenfield, MA.

The Greenfield Grille is a cozy bar/restaurant with a great set up for the band. There were crescent tables with table cloths, candles, dinner and drinks. Nice ! The band had a stage with a dance floor in front. This gave them the space they needed both to invite the crowd to groove to their sensational vibe, and they also used the area to totally jam out with each other during the show.

The Birds of Flame bill themselves as a tribute band to the great Mahavishnu Orchestra of the 1970's and 1980's. They are jazz fusion, rock, funk and world music. Their Facebook page mentions Weather Report as well. The members are :

Chris Devine - Violin
Bob Cummings - Keyboards
Chris Dixon - Guitar
Randy Tougas - Bass
Gary Rzab - Drums

Whitey's Metal Rock Review:

One of the 80s true guitar shredders was out and ripping it up at the Chance in Poughkeepsie on Feb. 4th. George Lynch from the band Dokken was out with his band the Lynch Mob. George left the band Dokken in the late 80s  because of tension with Dokken lead singer Don Dokken. Nothing new in the music world. He formed the band the Lynch Mob shortly after. George was always known for his fast and ripping guitar playing. I have always been drawn to players who take the guitar to the next level. To push it further to find a new note or style. Eddie Van Halen is such a player. In Dokken Lynch's guitar playing was just that.

Flash in the Viral Youtube Pan – or Here to Stay?

You probably know their story. They were a college men's a cappella group, very popular on Indiana University campus and in the a cappella competition circuit. Then they graduated and went their separate ways. Six years later, in 2007, one of the members posted on Youtube their 1998 live performance of a very amusing "12 Days of Christmas." Seven million hits later, Atlantic Records came calling. The video is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Fe11OlMiz8 It's now at over 12 million hits.

houseofblues boston_150Robert Plant and Band of Joy at the House of Blues, Boston - January 25, 2011 
with The North Mississippi Allstars

The House of Blues was originally in Cambridge, MA, when it was started in 1992 by Isaac Tigrett and Dan Aykroyd. It closed and reopened again in Boston on Lansdowne Street across from Fenway Park. The House of Blues currently has 12 live music concert halls throughout the United States.

Tickets are general admission or reserved seats. Here's a fan tip. For general admission, you should know their system to get the best spot. The House of Blues has a policy that if you eat at the restaurant, or buy something at the gift shop, you get a receipt to cut the line without waiting when the doors open. Our advice is get there early, and get your jump the line receipt.  We got some funky "Blues Brothers" t-shirts, securing our place in line. Where'd we end up ? Front row ... thanks, Dave!

Phishing Expedition:

I’ve heard OF them, but never actually HEARD them. Oh, maybe a song here or there, but I've never actually LISTENED to them. I hear they have diehard fans that travel high and low. It's rumored that Phish fans are unlike any other. It’s not about the trip- it’s about the music and…at the same time…it’s not about the music- it’s about the trip.
