                    Concert Blast in the Media Trailer at Memphis in May 2013

                    On this fourth Concert Blast Webisode we explain that during the opening night of the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival, Sheryl Crow was the first of three acts for the entire weekend to refuse the photographers from taking concert photos of her show. The photographers in the media trailer were very upset on this decision and you will see and hear their rants about her. Brian Hasbrook explains the photo pit access while Tom Thompson and Mike Arnold pick on Brian for not taking photos of Sheryl from the middle of the crowd. Enjoy Concert Blast Webisode 4 – The Sheryl Crow Photo Dilemma – Memphis in May 2013 Part 3.

The webisode finishes up at a wine tasting booth which Mike Arnold (who doesn’t drink) partakes in the various flavors. Enjoy this Concert Blast webisode!

                                    Vintage Trouble with Concert Blast

                                    During the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, TN, Concert Blast had the opportunity to interview one of their favorite new bands, Vintage Trouble. Mike received a text and a phone call from the VP over the Memphis in May media to tell us we were approved for an interview with the guys after their performance. Which was a good thing since we were up against the stage barrier ready to enjoy their show. We accepted the invitation and met three of the four guys from Vintage Trouble in their back stage trailer to discuss several topics. During the festival our audio recorder went out so we had to rely on our video. We videoed the interview and used the audio for the podcast, but also have the video here through our Concert Blast You Tube Channel.  Here’s the interview with Mike and Tom leading the discussion with Ty Taylor (lead singer), Richard Danielson (drums), and Nalle Colt (guitar) joins the conversation later. Bassist Rick Barrio Dill had to leave to catch a flight at the airport as soon as they left the stage. ENJOY!
