Stonedeaf Festival the new festival on the block has announced some of the greatest rock acts in the world earlier this year. Going to any hard rock music festival these days involves a huge expense and the camping is so far away from the festival site. Not at Stonedeaf Festival, we have excellent value tickets which can include camping right next to the arena. 
Those arriving on the 24th August will be able to listen and perhaps take part in TOTAL ROCK ‘s commemoration of their Friday night show to the late Tommy Vance (following his daughters permission to dedicate our stage to him).

Stonedeaf Festival is going to recreate going to a hard rock festival of the 80’s and 90’s but in a new and exciting way, incorporating all the parts of historic festivals like Donington and Monsters of Rock that are remembered and loved mainly the the awesome music! 
We are including …

Blacktop Mojo and Locust Grove come to The Viper Room to deliver a message. - The heartland still Rocks!

Last night at the Viper Room was sort of an episode of Wife Swap for me.  I originally signed up for the assignment when OC's Joyous Wolf was on the bill.  Upon confirmation of media credentials last week I was informed that Joyous Wolf decided to play Rocklahoma instead.  However, I was asked if I could still cover Oklahoma's Locust Grove, as they are represented by the same publicist as Blacktop Mojo. So California's sons would play in Oklahoma, and Oklahoma's sons would play in California.  Sounds fair enough I said.  Then I downloaded Locust Grove's Monster EP (released August 2017) and almost got a speeding ticket and blew the speakers in my car. Wow! Now I was more than excited to see them live.  They certainly did not disappoint and put on a spectacular show.  The four piece Hard Rock band bring a heavy rhythm section that is perfectly rounded off with mature vocals.  There are no gimmicks with this Rock Band, it was a set of well written songs performed wit…
