                It was St. Patrick’s Day and the Wildhorse Saloon served up a great party for about 1,500 rock music fans while George Thorogood and the Destroyers provided the entertainment, which thrilled everyone in attendance.  Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, and James Downing were there to cover the show (Tom Thompson was sick).

                There were technical difficulties while recording at the venue, so Mike later recorded a podcast of the concert review.  Click the link below to download (right click-Save Target As…) or listen to the podcast online.

                              Charlie Daniels Band Concert Review – Nashville, TN – Wildhorse Saloon – 8/27/09 (BLOG)

                                Concert Review Written By Tom Thompson

                                Charlie Daniel’s and the Charlie Daniel’s Band brought their southern rock show to the Wildhorse Saloon on August 27th, 2009.

                                I will have to say that Charlie and the band still know how to bring southern rock back to Nashville. The talent of Charlie and his band sounded better than ever. One thing I noticed with this show is Charlie plays a lot more electric and acoustic guitar than I have seen him do in the past. I was very pleased with how well he can still play, especially the numerous guitar leads. Charlie’s fiddle playing is still amazing, we just didn’t see him play it very often.

                                        Loverboy September 4, 2009 Wildhorse Saloon Nashville, TN

                                        Concert Review by James Downing

                                        For each decade in music there are a handful of bands that define the spirit and attitude of those years. The 50′s had Elvis, Chuck Berry, and Bill Haley, the 60′s had The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Monkees, The 70′s had Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Alice Cooper, Peter Frampton, and The Eagles. The 80′s had Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey and the subject of this review, Loverboy.

                                        Loveboy blew down from Canada and set the rock and roll world on fire with their rock anthems to make their mark music history. Lead by singer Mike Reno, the band chalked up a string of hit singles and lps that have become 80′s classics.  MTV was just getting started and this medium served as a springboard for many artists and bands and Loverboy was right there leading the pack.
