Oct 7, 2009 – The Black Crowes – Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater FL

December 29, 2013

Another awesome performance by The Black Crowes, probably my 4th or 5th favorite band of all time.  This tour was in support of the album Before The Frost…Until The Freeze with opening act Truth & Salvage Co.  My good friend Drocha joined me all the way from Orlando for this show and we had a blast!  The set list can be found HERE

Aug 15, 2009 – Incubus – Ford Ampitheatre, Tampa FL

December 29, 2013

Another excellent Incubus concert!  They were touring this time to promote their greatest hits album, Monuments & Melodies. I remember that Brent and Mandy went to this concert with me and the opening band was The Duke Spirit.  Memorable moment – when Incubus closed with a cover of Prince’s Let’s Go Crazy, not too many of the kiddies knew the song – frickin SHAME on them!  Set list can be found HERE

Aug 12, 2009 – Dave Matthews Band – Ford Ampitheatre, Tampa FL

December 29, 2013

My first Dave Matthews Band concert (shocking, I know) touring to promote the album Big Whiskey And The GrooGrux King.  Too bad I never got to see LeRoi Moore play live before he died. But even though it was the first tour without him, the show was awesome.  The opening band was Gov’t Mule, who I could have done without – way too hippie for my taste.  My good friends Brent and Mandy went as they do every year he comes around because Brent is a total man-groupie and in complete gay love with Dave (not that I’m judging).  The full set list can be found HERE

December 29, 2013

What an amazing show!!  I was there with several co-workers from Finance and IT while working at Golf Channel.  We had dinner at Raglan Road Irish Pub and cigars from Fuego by Sosa.  Great night, great memories with friends!

Dec 13, 2007 – Skindred and Nonpoint – House Of Blues, Orlando FL

December 29, 2013

You can’t go wrong with at double headliner night!!  Skindred and Nonpoint, with openers Karnivool and Ankla.  Skindred is extremely comical live – a very fun band that doesn’t take anything seriously except their music.  And Nonpoint is up in my top 10 always!
