The power of music, Saturday at ‘Why is Rock and Roll?’

There is no better method of time travel available to us as popular music. All it takes is a few chords, a bit of melody and a few familiar words to warp us into the past with amazing speed and accuracy. Suddenly, we’re transported to someplace else, recalling the magic associated with that favorite song.

Classic rock trio ‘like a walking jukebox’

Searching diligently for scoops on bands, live shows, plus new or less familiar artists in the area can be a bit like undercover intelligence work. It’s a little more than who’s playing when or where. ‘Just the facts’ isn’t always nearly enough to reveal more specifics, essential details, and surprises. Weaving through it all can be a challenge but is also usually successful and sometimes surprising even exciting

Listen to the power of Raine’s rock and blues

Even though the group carries her last name, the band Raine – live Friday at Eaglespeak Coffee House in south Charlotte – is all about combined power and the musical impact. Seven musicians, based in Fort Mill and Charlotte, form the lineup of Raine – singer/songwriter/ guitarist Christina Raine, along with Kennon Knight, drums/vocals; Rodney Wallin, bass; Michael Rone, percussion; Matt Darsey, viola; Dom Val, keyboards/Hammond; and Martin Garlitos, guitar.

Final call at Amos’ Southend for FireHouse

Before there was was a band named FireHouse, there was this group of ‘band guys’ hanging around in the Charlotte area, writing original songs, rehearsing, networking the region, going to concerts, recording demos, making friends, gigging at area clubs, and other live shows. Then there were label showcases, getting signed to a major label for albums, tours, arena concerts, with all theR & R fantasies of fame and fortune. Except it was all real and they were our friends – a distinct part of the metro music community. They’re our ‘guys’ and an exceptional band.
