THE LONELY ONES – Rockford, IL (Concert Review)

Here’s the thing…I could see The Lonely Ones live, over and over again. And I have! Every show is different. You never know what surprises are in store. For example, the last shows I attended we got to hear 3 incredible unreleased songs and I got the privilege of shooting my first live show on […]


The Wait Testament, Exodus and Death Angel, who could pass up this lineup?  Not us!  We secured tickets to the sold-out November 6, 2021 show at The Forge in Joliet, IL and… Covid postponed it until May 15th 2022.  No problem, we knew the drill by then, we were just happy to have tickets to […]

BOBAFLEX – Returns to Madison WI (Concert Review)

Bobaflex Bobaflex loves Wisconsin and Wisconsin loves Bobaflex.  The massive turn out for their long-awaited reunion show at The World’s Largest Brat Fest in Madison WI is proof of that.  To steal a line from their epic song “Home” The Crowd was on Fire, but I’m sure they recognized many faces since it seemed like […]

CHAOS & CARNAGE 2022 Tour (Concert Review)
