    Devour The Day In Concert - Nashville, TN 7-13-2015

    Devour The Day In Concert - Nashville, TN - 7/13/2015

    It was time to make another trip to the standing room only Cannery Ballroom in Nashville, TN.  Concert Blast was invited to cover Devour The Day (consisting of Blake Allison, Joey “Chicago” Walser, and two other touring musicians) about a month before the date and since Brian Hasbrook and Tom Thompson were already booked, Mike Arnold headed downtown with friend Allen Atkinson (to help with the photography).  Taking photos at the Cannery is extremely difficult since there is not a photo pit and the crowd is elbow to elbow with lots of pushing… especially at this hard rock show!  Continue reading about the night with Devour The Day written by Mike Arnold.

                Welcome to our first post of 2015. We took off in January, but the posts are now returning as we are gear up for the concert and music festival season.  For 2015 starters we are excited to learn that Slaughter‘s front man and Concert Blast friend, Mark Slaughter, is back with new music. His solo album, “Reflections in a Rear View Mirror“, is available now for down load.  From Mark’s website he posted, “These tracks represent the last year of creative expression for me.  When I started this journey, I had no idea of where it would take me.  Now that I’m here, I hope that you love the songs as much as I loved making them for you!“  Continue to read the official Press Release.

                                Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson returned to Nashville, TN to play the historic Ryman Auditorium for the second straight year.  This year Concert Blast was invited to review the concert so Mike Arnold and Brian Hasbrook headed downtown Nashville, TN to review one of Brian’s all time favorite performers, Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull.  Since photo passes weren’t being issued for this tour, Brian got to enjoy this show while Mike took the notes for the concert review.  Enjoy the review!

                                    Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers In Concert - Nashville, TN 9/23/2014

                                    It was Tuesday September  23rd in Nashville, TN while thousands of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers fans were very excited to see one of the best singer/songwriters in the Classic Rock Music genre… and one of the very few rockers from that era that still releases (and sells) new music today.  Concert Blast was invited to the Nashville party with photo credentials so our friend Samantha Shrader stepped up to help us out once again to take the concert photos of Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers, since Brian Hasbrook was out of town. Thank You Sam!  Enjoy her photos…

                                        Journey (Arnel Pineda) In Concert - Nashville, TN 9/12/2014

                                        Journey returned their rock show to Nashville, TN to thrill about 14,000 rock music fans at the Bridgestone Arena on September 12th, 2014 and Concert Blast was invited to cover the party. Nashville, TN seems to always be included on a Journey tour anytime they head to the eastern side of the country.  After seeing them perform here several times, I understand the reason … lots of Journey fans!  If that is not reason enough, then maybe because keyboardist/guitarist Jonathan Cain also lives in this Music City.  Enjoy the Journey concert review with very special guests Joan Jett and the Blackhearts written by Mike Arnold.
