Depending on when you were born you will have a favorite decade for music. For those born in the early 1970s that decade would probably be the 1980s. Three acts were on display at the Citizens Business Bank Arena on August 7, 2014, to demonstrate why that would be so. Little River Band, Eddie Money and Rick Springfield rocked Ontario, CA that night.

Surprisingly, a local act from Claremont opened the show. Mick Rhodes and the Hard Eight performed a set of Country Rock originals that kept the early crowd entertained until the main attractions arrived. Songs like “Back To The 909” and “Married Girls” went over well.

  06/19/14 18:25, by , Categories: Music News, Bands

The City Drive Entertainment Group has announced it has made a deal to film Atlanta-based hard rock icons Sevendust for a landmark multi-show live DVD and documentary.

Production on the feature-length documentary is set to begin immediately and take six months, and will include historical footage; footage from the band’s current “An Evening With Sevendust” acoustic tour; interviews; and cameos from Tommy Lee, Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge), Scott Phillips (Alter Bridge and also a member of Sevendust guitarist John Connolly and bassist Vince Hornsby’s band, Projected), Wolfgang Van Halen and many others. City Drive/DC3 will film the concert portion of the project in New York City.  They expect to film two full-length shows back-to-back: an acoustic show followed by a plugged-in show—the band’s last plugged-in show of 2014. The band will offer tickets for both shows to fans at one price and they’re expecting a very quick sell out. Tickets will go on sale sometime in late June.  On sale info will be announced soon.

Dark Globe “The Long Sleep” - A Reawakening

A review by Steven Rask

The turn of the century has seen a resurgence of comebacks from bands that were once on top of their game. However, when a band decides to make a “comeback album,” most attempts fail. Most times, critics ask,  “Why the hell would we need another album by THESE guys?”  Rocky Erickson, Mission of Burma, Portishead, and Wire are among very few bands whose recent “comeback” attempts have met relative success. Conversely, if you’ve heard the latest by Guns and Roses (2008), The Stooges (2007), Devo (2010), or even The Who (2006), you might agree with the  “Why the hell…?” consensus. Although one might consider it a “return” rather than a “comeback,” The Long Sleep by San Diego rock band Dark Globe has many of the traits that put it into the first category, and make it a successful follow-up to an album that was released over two decades ago.

Double Gin and Jazz

I’m sitting at the curve in the bar. It’s a well-routed wooden curve, smoothly polished by at least a couple score of bartenders over the years. I glance at my double Tanqueray and tonic and I see the bandstand’s blue stage lights reflected in the sheen of that polish. Outside the winds are gusting up to 50 knots and the intermittent showers come lashing in hard. This bar, called “The Brewery,” is located on a cliff overlooking the Pacific, exit 718 off of the Redwood Highway, State Route 101. A local jazz band, a quartet, troops up onto the stage. It’s not a real strenuous climb, there is only a 6″ riser. Break time is over, so get back on your heads, it’s time for another set.

The last time I saw the Christian rock band Stryper was at Rocklahoma a few years ago. They were headlining and the crowd was so massive I had to watch them on a screen that was overhanging the stage. I went to see them again this night in a much more intimate setting, at House of Blues, Houston, a few days before my trip to Rocklahoma 2012.
