Rockonsin 2018 and the Legacy That Follows

Live on the Summerfest Johnson Controls Stage
by Emily Sisson

For musicians, few experiences resonate deeper then the thrill and energy of performing for a live crowd. And young musicians around Milwaukee have long drooled with desire to get a coveted Summerfest gig. Lucky for the youth of Wisconsin, the dream of “some day” performing onstage at Summerfest can be achieved by the “Rockonsin” state finals.

Ritchie Blackmore & Candace Night

Blackmore’s Night - Wellmont Theater, Montclair, New Jersey, 7.29.18

by Michael Sherer

England’s Ritchie Blackmore is one of the all time great and admired musicians from rock’s golden era, the 1970’s. As co founder of Deep Purple in 1968 and the founder Rainbow in 1975, his melodic and tasteful playing is one of the most distinctive and respected of all his peers and beyond.

Always interested in many forms of music, in 1997 Blackmore formed Blackmore’s Night with his then girlfriend, singer and former model Candace Night, (47) whom he eventually married. Their group is a is mix of folk, Celtic, classical and medieval music. Blackmore (73) plays mostly acoustic guitar in this group, with the emphasis being on the stellar vocals of Night. They’ve been quite prolific, having recorded ten CDs and touring regularly. This performance was the final stop on their 2018 tour.

P.O.S. at the High Noon Saloon

by Sal Serio

In what had to have been one of the more highly anticipated hip-hop shows booked in to Madison this spring (JPEGmafia notwithstanding) Doomtree member/founder P.O.S. (born Stefon Alexander) brought his socially conscious raps to the High Noon Saloon on a balmy Tuesday night, May the 15. P.O.S. and D.J. Rowsheen had arrived in Madison several hours earlier for a well attended and inspirational warm up set in the downtown Isthmus magazine offices.

Patti Smith

The Photography Show - Presented by AIPAD, Pier 94, NYC, April 5 - 8, 2018

by Michael Sherer

For 38 years, The Association of International Photography Art Dealers, (AIPAD), has been presenting NYC annual exhibition called The Photography Show. Their current location is Pier 94 on 12th Ave at 55th Street, which affords lots of space and a bar with eating area. Featuring more than 85 prominent photography galleries from throughout the country, this is the biggest show of its kind. Myriad genres are on display, including contemporary, modern, nineteenth-century and photo-based media. There are also talks given by photographers and artists.

The music based photos are especially of interest to me, such as the one of Patti Smith in the early 1970’s here taken by a college friend of hers, Frank Stefanko. Smith would later recommend Stefanko to fellow New Jersey native Bruce Springsteen, which would yield two record covers for Springsteen, that being Darkness On The Edge Of Town in ‘78 and The River in ‘80.

Peter Criss & Gene Simmons

Gene Simmons Vault Experience - VK Nagrani, NYC, 3.24.18

by Michael Sherer

After forming KISS with Paul Stanley in 1972 at the age of 23, Gene Simmons has a long and interesting musical and personal history to share with his fans. Always a very hands-on man, Gene, now 68, has taken his story on the road for an intimate fan experience. Here’s the deal: Gene has released a huge box set stored in a signed vault, which contains 10 CDs of 150 songs that until now have never been released. They cover a whopping fifty years - 1966 to 2016.

There are many additional goodies in The Vault, including a book containing over 50,000 words and 160 photos from Gene’s personal collection. There’s also commentary on every track. The Vault itself is very sturdy and handsome (like Gene himself) and has wheels to easily roll.

Michael Schenker in Milwaukee, March 18, 2018

Michael Schenker Fest obliterates the Pabst in Milwaukee! 03.18.18

by Sal Serio

For a Sunday night, guitar legend Michael Schenker and band did not hold anything back for those who needed to get up early the next morning. I knew going in to this that it was a long show, but I was still unprepared for just exactly how expansive and what an incredible event the Michael Schenker Fest concert was. Any fans of Schenker’s career, especially but not exclusively the Michael Schenker Group years, should not miss this experience. Again, it was a Sunday night in Milwaukee, and the day after Saint Paddy’s Day to boot, but there was not fatigue and hangover in the air, rather a bristling electric excitement from the moment I walked in to the ornate and welcoming lobby of the historic Pabst Theater. From the look of the audience’s black t-shirts, many longtime Schenker fans were in attendance, but quite a few younger faces were present as well.
