ON THE ROAD: Buster Poindexter @ The Loft at City Winery / New York, NY / March 15, 2019

It remarkably had been over 25 years since I last saw Buster Poindexter perform. In the meantime, I had seen his non-alter-ego, David Johansen, do several laid-back shows to the accompaniment of just his guitarist, Brian Koonin. After a recent blog journey down memory lane about Buster, I was therefore more than thrilled to have […]

ON THE ROAD: Richard Barone & Glenn Mercer @ The Loft at City Winery / New York, NY / March 15, 2019

You couldn’t flatter me more than by calling me a music geek. As a bonafide geek, my greatest source of pride are the cherished songs and records in my collection that most ordinary folks have never heard of. Listening to them is one thing but getting to hear any of these old songs performed live […]

Teitur @ City Winery Lounge / Nashville TN / September 20, 2018

Back in 2003, when Third and Lindsley had yet to grow by knocking down its north wall, I saw a show there that I’ll never forget. In addition to co-headliners Glenn Tilbrook and Jill Sobule, an unknown singer-songwriter from the distant Faroe Islands opened and just knocked my socks off. The first song he played, […]

Al Stewart @ City Winery / Nashville, TN / June 12, 2018

Al Stewart last played Nashville at the Bluebird some 15 years ago. Before that it had been 25 years since his last Music City show. At this pace, the next time he plays here, I will likely have exhausted my retirement account and will be unable to attend! But, tonight, Stewart and his small combo […]

The Posies @ City Winery / Nashville, TN / January 28, 2018

As soon as I got into my car after seeing The Posies at the City Winery, several questions about my evening with Seattle power-pop band started running through my head. The show featured only the core Posies duo of Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow singing and playing electric guitars. While the twin axes made for […]

Micky Dolenz @ City Winery / Nashville TN / June 18, 2017

I have always considered The Monkees’ Micky Dolenz to be one of pop/rock’s all-time greatest vocalists. Whether sitting behind the drum kit or standing center stage, Micky has always been a consistently great singer with a strong, smooth, steady voice. Seeing him perform a solo show at age 72 at Nashville’s City Winery, I still […]

Alejandro Escovedo & Joe Ely @ City Winery / Nashville TN / August 12, 2017

In 1980, I left my home in New Jersey for a new life in Texas. Following my heart and leaving the exciting New York City music scene behind, I was surprised to learn that I had moved near another city that was a hotbed for some of the best music to come out of the […]
