Smash Mouth
Formed in late 1994, Smash Mouth began recording demos and showcasing in both San Jose and Hollywood, Calif. In June 1997, Smash Mouth signed to Interscope Records when label brass caught wind of an unknown (and unsigned) band being added to L.A. radio station KROQ’s playlist after only one spin of their song “Walkin’ on the Sun.” Smash Mouth’s major-label debut Fush Yu Mang goes more than double platinum and sets the table for what most consider their masterpiece, the brilliant follow-up album Astrolounge. Boasting three top-ten hits (“All-Star,” “Then the Morning Comes,” and “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”), sales for Astrolounge are nearly double than their debut album, approaching quadruple platinum status. Smash Mouth’s third eponymous Interscope release features the ecstatic first single “Pacific Coast Party” and the smash hit “I’m a Believer” which was featured on the Shrek soundtrack. The band most recently released the album Magic and continue has focused on touring and entertaining troops in Japan, Guam, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, and Iraq.

Toad the Wet Sprocket
Named in honor of a sketch by the Monty Python comedy troupe, Toad the Wet Sprocket became one of the most successful alternative rock bands of the early ’90s, boasting a contemporary folk-pop sound that wielded enough melody and R.E.M.-styled jangle to straddle both the modern rock and adult contemporary markets. Singer Glen Phillips, guitarist Todd Nichols, bassist Dean Dinning and drummer Randy Guss formed the group in 1986 in their native Santa Barbara, Calif. After years of persistent touring, Toad the Wet Sprocket went mainstream with the 1991 album Fear as the single “All I Want” became a Top 20 hit. Another single from the LP, “Walk on the Ocean,” fared similarly well, and the combination pushed Fear to platinum sales. Three years later Toad returned with the album Dulcinea which generated a third Top 40 hit with the single “Fall Down.” The band continues to tour and most recently released their first album of new material in 16 years with New Constellation.

The Official Blues Brothers Revue and Blues, Brews, BBQ Festival at the Cannery Casino

The Official Blues Brothers Revue and Blues, Brews, BBQ Festival at the Cannery Casino

Sanctioned by Dan Akroyd and The Belushi Estate!

 

Humor, music and a little mayhem. You’ll get it all in the full presentation of The Official Blues Brothers Revue at the Cannery Casino’s indoor concert venue on Friday, June 22, 2012 at 8 p.m. Admission is $10 at the door.  The performance begins at 8 p.m.

The Official Blues Brothers Revue, featuring Wayne Catania  as “Jake” and Kieron Lafferty as “Elwood”, is an entertaining and unique show that blends music and humor as only the Blues Brothers delivered it.

The Blues Brothers, first portrayed by John Belushi and Dan Akroyd on Saturday Night Live in 1978, and in The Blues Brothers movie have had many interpretations over the years.  But only one can be truly called “official”, and only one is sanctioned by Dan Akroyd and The Belushi Estate.

After learning of Catania and Lafferty’s performance as the Blues Brothers, Judy Belushi Pisano asked the two to audition for the stage musical The Official Blues Brothers Revival.  The two were cast as Jake and Elwood and the musical ran successfully in Chicago in 2004.  From that production, The Official Blues Brothers Revue was born.

The live concert show combines the entertaining comedy and hits from the original Blues Brothers movie and pays tribute to Chicago’s rich history of blues, gospel, and soul music.  The Revue delivers all the passion and precision that the original Blues Brothers Band delivered. It’s uplifting, upbeat and true to the duo who inspired it all.

Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival

On Saturday, June 23, the Cannery Casino kicks off the 9th Annual Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival in the outdoor area.  It features a collection of a dozen micro and craft brewed beers and ciders as well as BBQ from H&H Barbeque, Austin Blues Bar-B-Q and Lone Coyote Smokehouse & Grill.  Beers, Ciders and BBQ will be available for sale on site.

Entrance to the Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival, which begins at 5 p.m. on Saturday, is $10 at the door.  The entertainment includes performances by John Lee Hooker, Jr., selected songs from The Official Blues Brothers Revue, along with Sputzy and the Soul Providers.  In addition, New Orleans native Ironing Board Sam, who plays his keyboard on an actual ironing board, will also entertain the crowd with his unusual musical talent.

To say John Lee Hooker, Jr. was familiar with the blues as a young child is a vast understatement.  As the son of blues legend John Lee Hooker, the blues were always present as “little” Hooker was growing up. He was exposed to such greats as Jimmie Reed, Washboard Willie and Boogie Woogie Red. By the time he turned 18 years old, John Lee Hooker, Jr. was a recording artist performing with his father.

The Cannery Casino is located at 2121 E Craig Road (Craig & Losee), North Las Vegas, Nevada. (702) 507-5777.

Danzig with DevilDriver and 2Cents Concert at House Of Blues Las Vegas Review

Another great show at the House of Blues Las Vegas Friday night 5-29-2011. Malibu Cailfornia’s metal band 2Cents got the evening stared at around 6:30. They played a fast and furious set and you can tell that they love what they’re doing. This is the second time I’ve seen them at the House of Blues Las Vegas and they are one of my Favorite opening acts.

The second act was Santa Barbara California’s groove metal band Devildriver. My son and I really like this band and they are the real reason we were there. Their recent CD Beast was in my car quite a while a couple of weeks ago and I like its hard hitting sound. Vocalist Dez Fafara impresses me with his ability to carry a scream note a looooong time and also his hard sound. The band is tight and sounds equally as well live. Their set was shorter than I would have liked but was great sounding and the pit was a lot of fun.

What can you say about headliner Danzig. Glen Danzig has been around forever and the crowd was really into the act and interacting with him. Glen knows how to work an audience. He’s still pretty buff and his band sounds terrific.His set list was long and included all the fan favorites.His voice is still very powerfull. Suprisingly security was very tight not allowing any photography and I only got a couple pictures. Danzig puts on a great show

All in all it was yet another House of Blues Las Vegas classic night and I love going to see shows there. Can’t wait until the next one.
