Dan Locke: Tell me about your background. How did you get interested in Music?

Well I think it was inevitable! My grandmother was an opera singer and my mother a concert pianist, so there was always a constant presence of music in the house, but i also think one gravitates towards something they are born to do.In my case it started with the home made theatrical productions then graduated to talent schools as a kid and then onto further...

When I found out Stereophonics was coming to Chicago, I practically sprung out of my chair and straight into a colleague of mine....who by the way was carrying three full and hot cups of hipster brand coffee.

B.B. King, ... [Read More]

Garth Brooks  

I have to start with saying "WOW." I saw Garth Brooks live in 1996 performing in Lansing, Michigan. He was just as good 18 years ago as he was tonight. The house was packed floor to ceiling. Not one person sitting in their seat. Almost every person knew every word to every song. Garth started ... [Read More]

"Fuck all that shit; Slayer was fucking awesome!"

What can be said about tonight that hasn't already been written? Metal isn't dead, the crowd was fantastic, and the band simply rocks. Slayer has been out there since the 80s, and unlike another all too obvious heavy metal band out there, the years and success haven't corrupted the energy or quality of Slayer's performance.

Into The Woods (2014)  

Into The Woods (2014)

Into the Woods takes a spin on several classic fairy tales with a modern twist and brings them together into one musical journey. I found this movie starting out on a journey that just kept falling apart as every scene past or note was sung which brings the story into some very suggestive, adult themed tones that is definitely not for the entire family. I sat down with my wife and 6 year old and were looking forward to another Disney classic but found ourselves extremely disappointed. From the beginning the characters and story aren't interesting and are quite jumbled leaving an uneasy feeling with how they tarnish beloved stories that have been part of the Disney legacy....[Read More]
