    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!
