Gary Allan Heats up The Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom

It may have been on the cold side at the beach, but it was nothing but hot inside the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom for country star Gary Allan. This is one performer that does not disappoint. While a country singer, Allan’s shows are more of a full on rock production. Backed by a  7 piece band, the sound was more of an arena sound in a venue that holds less than 3000 people. The backbone of the band is powerhouse Mitch White on drums laying down the solid foundation of songs such as “Pieces” and what has been a huge hit this past year for Gary “Every Storm (Runs out of Rain)”.

Gary Allan packs something for everyone into his shows including a cover of the Del Shannon hit “Runaway” which I’m sure the older generation can appreciate. Judging by the reaction of the crowd, what seemed to be the biggest hit of the night and possibly the biggest hit of Allan’s career “Watching Airplanes” brought the Casino Ballroom to its feet. Be sure to check out Gary Allan on the road this summer. You can find tour dates at http://www.garyallan.com

ASM Hits The Road With Eric Church

Audio Still Magazine had the privilege of hitting the road with Eric Church in Virginia for a couple of shows on the Blood, Sweat and Beers tour. For the fall leg of the tour, Church has brought along Kip Moore and Justin Moore as support acts. I think that Kip and Justin have gained many new fans over the last few months touring with Eric Church. Kip and Justin put everything they have into their performance night after night. These acts are not to be missed.

As the hands of the clock hit 9pm, the Eric Church band and crew ready to take to the stage for the rest of the evening. For Church concert veterans, they know that when “Electric Worry”  comes over the PA system, it is show time. House light down, volume up and the band hits the stage for what is to be a night that concert goers will not soon forget.

The entire band and crew truly love what they do and you can see everyone’s work shine night after night when they all give every ounce of energy that they have to bring you the best show. Do yourself a favor, attend an Eric Church show. As 2012 comes to a close for Eric in what has been a monster year for the artist, Church readies himself for the 2013 tour with Kenny Chesney.

The Farm Docks At The Old Port Festival In Portland Maine

Nashville recording artists The Farm were on hand for Portland Maine’s 39th Annual Old Port Festival on Sunday June 10th 2012. The day was filled with food, crafts and entertainment in Portland’s Old Port District. Narrow cobblestone streets, small gift shops and a wide selection of restaurants made for the perfect setting. The Farm, consisting of Krista Marie, Damien Horne, Nick Hoffman and Will Denton on percussion, flew from Nashville just for this show. As the band took the stage, crowds gathered closer and closer to the stage. Playing a selection of songs off their upcoming album (July 17th, 2012 –  Warner/Elektra Records), they band got the crowd dancing to the music. They also included a few cover songs in their set as well. The highly energetic band kept the crowds attention the entire set. Their first single “Home Sweet Home” got the crowds attention and had them singing along with the band. The band took time after their set to sign autographs and take pictures with many of the luck fans that came out to see them.
