You Ott to be Listening Volume 8: The Noi!se Special Edition

noi!se

Normally I would be presenting you with 10 songs from all genres, today is a little different. Today I give Noi!se, a Street Punk band from Tacoma, Washington. I’ll still give you 10 great songs (maybe if you are really good I’ll give you few special bonus tracks too). Screw it… Be as bad as […]

Rockin’ in Paradise with Styx at Ruth Eckerd Hall

HOP_9900

A sold out crowd at Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall was treated to an amazing night of music by Styx and 38 Special: two bands that have provided us a juke box full of hits and for some, a soundtrack of their youth.  Yes, another sold out rock show in Tampa Bay. People are getting out […]

The 13 – Featuring Jack Grisham

Live form LB

What is “The 13” you ask? It’s simple, 13 questions and answers with interesting people. This time we have Jack Grisham, the front man of the legendary punk band, T.S.O.L. letting us peak into his wonderful and artful mind.

This Is Mushroomhead

_M2A0112

Mushroomhead at The Haven in Winter Park, Fl. I stood in front of the stage, a sense of fear started to creep in. It was the final act of a six-hour show, and the band was already 20 minutes late. The crowd was huge, especially for such a small venue. Adorned with masks, tattoos, and […]

My Monstrous Kind Of Rockville

Collective Soul 1

Monster Energy Drink’s Welcome to Rockville is more of an experience than a show. Though they passed out schedules at the door, you’d be lucky to see even half of what the event had to offer due to its enormity. Walking through the gate felt like being transported to a new world – a place […]

You Ott to be Listening: Volume 7

Clint-Lowery01-480x342

This week’s playlist is nothing but covers. Covers go a long way with me and these 10 go the distance. Don’t forget to support the bands, and when I say support I don’t just me listen to their songs… I’m talking buying their Merchandise, go to their shows, and help promote them. O’Keefe Music Foundation: […]

Sunday’s Fort Rock roster transitioned from Saturday’s lineup of old school metal  to more of a modern sound on the hard rock scene with Shinedown and Disturbed headlining day 2. First up was a new player on the rock scene in Red Sun Rising, who took the stage at 1:00 on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  […]

HOP_8447-2

The 2016 Monster Energy’s Fort Rock Festival at Jet Blue Park in Ft. Myers, FL made its two-day debut on April 30 and May 1, 2016.  And let’s just say, it couldn’t have been any better, as AEG did a great job organizing this year’s festival.   This year’s sponsors included: Monster Energy, Jack Daniels, Bud […]
