         While the concert-touring season has slowed down for the winter, I thought it would be nice to show our listening audiences what we went through in 2010.  I created multiple videos of our experiences with a month by month journey of our adventures.

         Here’s Part 4 of our 2010 Concert Blast Posts.  This video takes you through our experiences of a fun music festival,  the Bonnaroo Music Festival as well as Sheryl Crow in Chattanooga and The Freeman Lake Concert in Elizabethtown, KY with Grand Funk Railroad and The Guess Who .

                            Here is a popular podcast from 2006 re-edited.  Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, and Tom Thompson created this Music Discussion podcast of songs that begin with a Drum Beat.  We begin the show by taking turns naming songs from various artists, reading emails from our listeners, and then played a game of “Name That Tune” by the Drum Beat Intro.

                            Some of the Artists named are; Alice Cooper, Steve Miller Band, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin, Bob Seger, Rolling Stones, Queen, J Geils Band, Billy Squire, Grand Funk Railroad, Judas Priest, Cheap Trick, KISS, Loverboy, Joan Jett, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Phil Collins, Eagles, Guns and Roses, Van Halen, Billy Idol, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pat Benetar, B52s, Bruce Springsteen, INXS, Roy Orbison, U2, and Huey Lewis & the News

                            Enjoy!

                                The one question that is asked to us more than anything is, “When is the Concert Blast book coming out?”.  Now we can say Very Soon and now a preview is available for the public’s viewing through our signup list.  Since the book is now in the finishing stages, it seems at this point it is set for a Spring of 2010 release.

                                    TIME FOR ANOTHER MUSIC DISCUSSION

                                    While we took a break from our concert reviews, Brian got the idea to create a Music Discussion with songs of TIME. If you think about it, there are several. I know, I know, we will definitely forget the obvious songs. In fact, the songs on the intro are some we forgot.
