I eagerly anticipated the return of Question Mark & the Mysterians to White's Bar. I am a longtime fan, having met Question Mark (Rudy Martinez) back in 1966 when he and his family lived on the 800 block of Howard Street right next door to my cousin Sally Rork.

Every year Lansing hosts the Common Ground music festival. This festival is by far one of the most relaxed and laid-back festivals I have ever had the honor of attending.

Roaming Free within the Vibrant Cage of Bonnaroo
By Bo White This was my third straight year communing with the masses, over 80,000 brave souls enduring long hot days and cold spring-like nights.

Got to hand it to Ben Cohen & Co. They sure enough know how to put on an old fashioned hoedown for their friends and neighbors. It helps to have some heavy hitters supporting the event like Burt Watson Chevrolet, Review Magazine, Tim Boychuck’s State Farm Insurance, 97.

Donna Hill of Dallas, Texas Hits the Note
Apart from putting on a stellar two-and-a-half hour show at The Dow Event Center on March 16th, guitarist/singer & songwriter Joe Bonamassa brought a solid crowd of faithful fans to their feet with his distinctly emotive guitar technique and a set list that included material spanning his relatively young career, along with an encore that included a blistering rendition of Led Zeppelin’s Dazed & Confused, melded together with refrains from Jeff Beck’s Ain’t Superstitious.
