                The fun continued for the Concert Blast staff at the Beale Street Music Festival for Day Two coverage on Saturday May 4th.  On this day we covered ZZ Top, The Black Keys, Patti Smith, Jerry Lee Lewis, Dwight Yoakam, and Gavin DeGraw.  Saturday started on a great note as we have always started for many years… sleeping in late and getting a late lunch at the world’s famous barbeque ribs restaurant, Charlie Vergos’ Rendezvous!  They have sponsored our Saturday coverage for years and this year they asked us to return next year.  We thank both sponsors that helped make these trips possible, Rendezvous and The Best Around Food Concessions!  Check out the podcast and/or read the following blog on our Saturday adventures!

                        One of the first topics Concert Blast covered on our very first show was the discussion of Tom Thompson’s trip to Memphis as he attended the Beale Street Music Festival in May of 2005.  Every year since, Concert Blast has covered the three day music festival and have enjoyed every one of them.  This is part one of a three part series of what happened in Memphis, TN at Tom Lee Park during the first weekend in Memphis In May. Special thanks to the Memphis In May staff for inviting us every year to cover this event and for making us feel very welcomed!
