#55 Tony Lucca

Posted in: Past Shows

First night of 2 sold out shows in a row. Unbelievable concert! HBA opened and the crowd didn’t want to see them leave the stage. But then Tony gets up and had us eating out of his hands! So freakin’ good! The energy, the music! Now this is what we are talkin about!

WE LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THESE BOYS! A sold out show weeks in advance! Tonight the boys performed their own headlining show and then they are opening for Tony Lucca the next 2 nights. How crazy is this! The concert was perfect and everyone – including Chris – were bantering with the crowd. Brian was not here tonight and we missed him, but Mike Smirnoff did an admirable job sitting in for him while Brian awaits the birth of his first child.

Oh.My.My. Peter Bradley Adams. Can’t believe we had him here tonight. Soft rocked our faces off in the best imaginable way.

#52 Callaghan wsg Erick Baker

Posted in: Past Shows

We fell in love with Callaghan when we first heard her last year and we were not disappointed tonight! New songs, old songs – we just love her! She brought a guitar player tonight – Julia St Clair and she was lovely. There is just no disputing her talent. Erick Baker performed an opening set with Donnie Reiss supporting him on violin & piano. Unbelievable talent and charisma on stage.

These two voices. Joy is what we feel watching Alli. Happiness is what we find listening to their concert. How are these two not a household name?

How apropos for our 50th concert! Stephen Kellogg comes to Spring Lake to play for a sold-out crowd on this solo acoustic tour. As if that wasn’t enough, he brings Milow with him to open. Now, Milow leaves Spring Lake to play Bonnaroo. He damn near stole the show! He’s a huge star in Belgium & the rest of Europe and here he was tonight performing on our tiny little stage. Then Stephen gets on stage – totally owning every square inch – and plays favorites & new favorites. Holy crap! How was tonight even possible!

#48 Courtyard Concert with Honor By August

Posted in: Past Shows

Another first in our history. We put on our first outdoor show as what we refer to as a Courtyard Concert featuring Honor By August in their first full-on rock show! The weather was super hot, but the day was great. But then the boys came inside and performed a Pin Drop Concert. Truly magical and why this post is numbered. Raised some funds and awareness for The Little Red House. Fauxgrass opened the show with their contemporary blue grass. Do good! Have fun! A concert for the community. It’s what we did today!

The moment over year ago when we heard Liz Longley for the first time, we knew she was destined to be here. And what a concert. We cried, we laughed – we were in awe! This beautiful young singer/songwriter is astounding! More, we want more of Liz Longley – double L from hell!
