    2014 Memphis In May Beale Street Music Festival

    It was day two of the 2014 Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival and the guys from Concert Blast was ready for another day of fun and music.  They started the day with a delicious lunch with their friends (and Saturday sponsor) at Rendezvous.  The best barbecue ribs in town… maybe the planet!  From there Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, Tom Thompson, and Will Perry headed to Tom Lee Park to begin their duties.  We covered several top acts, but only a few made the audio podcast; Four Vines Winery interview, Los Rabanes (from Panama), Jerry Lee Lewis, Blues Traveler, Joan Jett, and the headliner for the night, Kid Rock.  Special thanks to our festival sponsor, The Best Around Concessions.  Enjoy the audio podcast coverage and Mike Arnold’s written blog review!

        It was one of our favorite times of the year, the first weekend in May.  Also known to us as time for the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival. Every year Concert Blast has been invited to cover this huge music festival.  This year’s lineup was not as good as the past years, but we still had a good time.  This year’s Concert Blast staff consisted of Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, Tom Thompson, and our special guest helper, Will Perry.  Here is the podcast on Friday night’s events with live clips from Third Eye Blind, Dropkick Murphys, Fitz and the Tantrums (our favorite), 311, Foster The People, and we closed out the night with Dickey Betts & Great Southern.  We also must thank our Friday festival sponsor, The Best Around Food Concessions… Enjoy the podcast and the Mike’s written blog review!
