Concert review - Hollywood Vampires - Seneca Niagara Casino, Niagara Falls, NY - July 9, 2016

Review by John Jeffrey, Photos - Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

Niagara Falls, NY - Saturday night's concert at the outdoor venue (set up in the parking lot) of the Seneca Niagara Casino was one of the most unique concert experiences I've endured in quite some time.  After what seemed like a torrential down-pour, the Hollywood Vampires (whose name derives from The Hollywood Vampires celebrity drinking club, formed by Alice Cooper in the 1970s, whose members included Ringo Starr of The Beatles and Keith Moon of The Who), wowed the crowd with an electrifying set of covers and two originals, most which are featured on the supergroup's 2015 studio album.

Concert review - The Winery Dogs - The Tralf, Buffalo, NY July 5, 2016

Review and photos by John Jeffrey

Buffalo, NY - When The Winery Dogs took the last stage Tuesday night at the sold-out Tralf Music Hall in downtown 'B-lo,' I knew I was in store for a night of "BS."  When I say "BS," I am referring to the one and only, Billy Sheehan, Buffalo native and bass player extraordinaire.  It's always a special time when Billy returns to his home town, as fans, friends and followers literally come out of the woodwork to see the "Buffalo boy who done good."

Concert review - Buckcherry - Mooney's Concert Cove, Arkon, NY - July 5, 2016

 

 Review / Photos by Thomas S. Orwat Jr. 

Arkon, NY - It could have been one of those forgettable, phone-it-in nights for Anaheim, California rockers, Buckcherry, as a hastly arranged Tuesday evening show at a venue in the middle of nohwere, with an audience of barely 300, would cause most major bands to just go through the motions, and then get the hell out.  But, Buckcherry stood strong, showed their true colors, and gave the small, but ethusiastic crowd a great night of hard-hitting and sleazy rock n' roll.  Their 90-minute performance consisted of many of their hits, fan favorites, and a few off their new CD, 'Rock n' Roll.'

Concert review - Whitesnake, Whitford/St. Holmes - Artpark, Lewiston, NY - June 28, 2016

Review by John Jeffrey , photos Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

Lewiston, NY - Going into ArtPark for Rock Music Star's first show there - for the 2016 Summer concert season - I honestly did not know what to expect.  While the teaming up of some of rock's most legendary stalwarts: David Coverdale (Whitesnake), Brad Whitford (Aerosmith) and Derek St.Holmes (Ted Nugent) looked good on paper (as the latter two teamed up for a reunited version of Whitford/St.Holmes, as the duo opened the show), I wasn't necessarily convinced how well it would all translate into a great rock and roll show.
