    It was the opening night of the Beale Street Music Festival and the gang from Concert Blast were very excited to start the coverage and to be a part of the events taking place at the 2014 Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival.   Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, Tom Thompson, and our helper Will Perry had a fun time at this year’s festival. This year’s event was extra special because the weather was exceptional.  For the first time since we’ve attended this festival back in 2005, it did not rain at all during these three days.  Not only did it not rain, the weather was perfect! Check out this video webisode of our Friday night coverage from the photo pits of Third Eye Blind, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Foster The People. ENJOY!

        It’s that time of year again as the Concert Blast crew make their way to Memphis, TN to cover the 2014 Memphis In May Beale Street Music Festival.  This year Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, and Tom Thompson brought along their favorite helper, Will Perry.  Will had the duty to do whatever the staff needed; take photos, capture video, carry the equipment, and whatever else the crew requested, but most importantly, he’s young enough to keep up with Mike, Brian, and Tom during the physically brutal task (and lack of sleep) of covering a music festival.  This video webisode captures the trip down I-40 from Nashville to Memphis and walking through the luxurious downtown Doubletree Hotel before walking to festival.  Special thanks go out to our trip’s sponsor, The Best Around food concessions and the video work of Will Perry! Enjoy this first video of our 2014 Memphis in May coverage!
