    Nashville, The Ryman, The Raconteurs. All three share the commonality of legendary status, and boast of a mix of country, blues and rock. Although The Raconteurs formed in 2005, and have released only two albums (Broken Boy Soldiers and Consolers of the Lonely), their fan base has categorized them into an obscure, yet popular act. The band consists of Jack White (Vocals, guitar, piano), Brendan Benson (Vocals, guitar), Patrick Keeler (Drums), and Jack Lawrence (Bass).

        This was a different and unique concert as Styx performed two sets and an encore.  Set one was nothing but the entire Grand Illusion album in order and set two included only the Pieces of Eight album in order.

                Sheryl Crow - In Concert Nashville, TN

                Written by James Downing

                If you remember a few months ago, I reviewed my less than pleasurable experience seeing Sheryl Crow at The River Bend Music Fest in Chattanooga, TN.  It wasn’t that Sheryl was bad, she was great, but what I was told was a front row seat was actually a seat quite a ways back from the stage behind a general admission area and the band was on a stage that was at least 40 feet high.  Now for a casual music fan, that would have been satisfactory, but I am not your casual music fan.  When I go to a show I like to be as close to the stage as possible, especially when it comes to a favorite of mine like Sheryl Crow.  I was glad that I had the chance to see her perform several shows on this tour because the other shows that I attended more than made up for the sour taste that was left in my mouth after the Chattanooga show.

                            One of Concert Blast’s favorite band, Train, performed in Nashville, TN at the Ryman Auditorium on Good Friday, April 2nd, 2010 and the guys were there to enjoy the show while writing the concert review for a podcast.

                            On this particular night, all 4 members of the Concert Blast team were together to start the podcast, but on the concert  review portion of the podcast, James Downing had a Meet & Greet VIP Pass to meet the band members after the show while Mike, Brian, and Tom recorded the concert review.

                            This is the best setlist and most energetic performance the guys had seen Train perform, although it wasn’t as energetic as the Pat Monahan Solo Tour.

                                    What do you get when one of rock and roll’s best guitarist, mix that with a little rock-a-billy and throw in some Christmas cheer for good measure?  You get the annual Brian Setzer Christmas Extravaganza.  On Wednesday, Dec. 9th 2009, Brian Setzer and company played to a completely sold out Ryman Auditorium and boy did the concert goers get their money’s worth.  The stage was decorated with Santas, Wooden Soldiers, Christmas Trees and wrapped gifts.  This is the 7th year that this show has toured during the Christmas season.  And judging from the reaction of the crowd he will be doing it for many years to come.  They loved it.
