In an industry where festivals strive just to return consecutive years, CRUSH AZ stands a beacon as it readies to celebrate a decade as  Arizona’s longest standing EDM festival.  Expanding to two days, the 10th Anniversary of CRUSH AZ with return to the Rawhide Event Center on Friday, February 15 and Saturday, February 16 and will feature a lineup reflective of this milestone.

JAZZ IS PHSH is an instrumental tribute to Phish inspired by the popular tribute to The Grateful Dead, “Jazz is Dead”. JAZZ IS PHSH is a collective of prominent musicians from the Jazz and Jam scenes that have come together in their appreciation of Phish music to reimagine Phish in an instrumental, jazz fusion setting!

South Africa’s Ladysmith Black Mambazo was founded in the early 1960s by Joseph Shabalala, then a teenage farm boy living on the lands just outside the small town of Ladysmith, in the province of kwaZulu Natal, halfway between Johannesburg and Durban. Joseph used his hometown’s name to honor his family’s history. Joseph added to his group’s name the word Black in reference to the black oxen, the strongest of all farm animals.

In 2017, Ivor Novello Award-winning and GRAMMY® Award-nominated legend Richard Thompson gave himself up to the music itself. Picking up a guitar, emotions echoed through his deft fleet-fingered fretwork, poetic songwriting, impassioned picking. Those transmissions comprise his nineteenth solo album, 13 Rivers.

“I never really think about what songs mean,” he admits. “I just write them. Some of them reflect on what happened a few months ago or even a year ago. It’s a process of surveying my life and where I was at.”

The Wood Brothers never disappoint in bringing the house down in their hometown, and last week's show was no exception.  The evening started with Amy Helm (product of Levon Helm).  She has a beautiful voice, and stage presence and her band members were exquisite.  I saw hints of 'The Band'... made me wonder if her Dad was at the Theater last evening.  Great way to start the night!

Prior to the upcoming first-ever OZZFEST New Year's Eve celebration, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy® Award-winning singer and songwriter OZZY OSBOURNE sat down to talk about the festival created in his name.

A genuine musical journeyman, Kris Lager brings his feel good music to Fort Collins, Colorado.  One of those rare and dynamic performers who deliver a combination of musical ability and charisma, Kris Lager and his ultra funky & energetic band will raise the spiritual level of Downtown Artery on Tuesday, January 15th.  Be prepared to dance, clap, and sing along for a fun and interactive show laced with road tested songs, and contagious grooves.

In his second single as a solo musician, Daniel Rodriguez explores a sound different from his offerings in Colorado folk band Elephant Revival. “Johnny” features a dramatic and mysterious Latin groove, courtesy of special guests Tyler Thompson and Jeff Leonard of Fruition, Darren Garvey of Elephant Revival, Sam Trump of Sidewalk Chalk, and Lewi Longmire. “Johnny” is the second single to be released from Rodriguez’s upcoming EP release, out February 15, 2019.

It only took about 60 seconds after landing at Nashville’s Belmont University for budding singer/songwriter Abby Brown’s musical future to be gracefully inspired by local icons like Emmy Lou Harris, Alison Krauss, The Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow and other prominent influences like Carole King, Stevie Nicks and Bonnie Raitt.

Abby is seen as an “old soul with a young heart” who connects with her listeners through catchy melodies, authentic lyrics and a truly one-of-kind vocal presence.
