        Every year Concert Blast is invited to cover the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival and every year the guys look forward to attending the annual event.  This year was the year that Concert Blast didn’t have their professional photographer Brian Hasbrook with them. Brian had a previous engagement so Mike and Tom borrowed a camera and brought along Steve Shattuck to help them with the photography duties.

                Mike Arnold and Brian Hasbrook of Concert Blast covered Saturday’s 2011 Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival with artists; Lucinda Williams, Mumford and Sons, Jerry Lee Lewis, Hinder, and Paul Thorn. Unfortunately, JohnMellencamp did not allow the media into the photo pit and Ke$ha’s stage show was too dark for the non-flash cameras.

                Enjoy the concert photos taken by Brian Hasbrook on this day two of his Photo Postings.

                            The second night of the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival coverage for our podcast begins with recordings from the establishment who sponsored day two of the festival, Rendezvous in downtown Memphis (our favorite place to eat Bar-B-Que Ribs).

                            Rendezvous Restaurant - Memphis, TN

                            The guys start the day by interviewing fans of the music festival and having a fun conversation with Percy, an employee of Rendezvous for 40 years.  Percy takes us down memory lane as he discussed the former Presidents and many stars who have attended the restaurant.

                            They ate a wonderful meal before heading to the Beale Street Music Festival while to enjoy the various genres of music from Colbie Caillat, Jerry Lee Lewis, Seether, Michael McDonald, along with Hall and Oates. Continue Reading…

                                Spring is in the air and it’s the month of May! For the last 4 years, Concert Blast has taken the road trip to Memphis, TN to report on the Beale Street Music Festival as part of the city’s Memphis In May festivities. Below is a report from Tom Thompson on the Friday night excitement as he and a couple of his friends enjoyed the festivities.  Although the Music Festival continues during the rain, unfortunately the guys were rained out for the Saturday and Sunday shows.

                                Starting off we would like to thank our friends with Memphis in May for their hospitality. As it turned out, Friday was forecasted for rains all evening. Arriving at the festival we encountered just some overcast skies but otherwise a beautiful Memphis evening.
