STONEDEAF FESTIVAL REVIEW BY ENIGMA13MUSICPHOTOGRAPHY

Image
From the ashes of the idea of the Monsters of Rock Festival, Donington, UK, the magnificent Stonedeaf Festivalhttp://www.stonedeaffestival.co.uk/ has now been born.

Stonedeaf Festival is a one day rock festival formed by a group of veteran rockers who loved the one day festival vibe, of MOR. For those, who miss the days of a one day, reasonably priced rock festival. The group met on-line when they joined the Facebook group ‘Donington Monsters of Rock & Download Veterans’. Once there, they reminisced about their personal experiences at the festival in the 80’s and 90’s. In the beginning, the group fantasied about what it would be like to put on their own festival one day, but due to their love of the idea, and the thoughts of ‘what if?’ this soon progressed to ‘can we really do this?’ The idea was now becoming a reality, and the group looked into Newark Showground as a venue, and met there from their homes all around the UK, for a site visit in July 2017. Most of the group were meet…

ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK
Sends Warmest Christmas Wishes
Energized by the yearlong celebration of his 50th Showbiz Anniversary, iconic pop singer, Engelbert Humperdinck feels the urge to start his next decade on a celebratory note as well. Coming hot on the heels of his first album of original material in over a decade, the acclaimed The Man I Want to Be, Engelbert decided to launch the next chapter of his illustrious career on October 12, 2018by surprising the fans with Warmest Christmas Wishes, a brand-new Christmas album – his first in almost forty years. Much like its predecessor, Warmest Christmas Wishes is a combination of classic, new and unexpected songs. Traditional holiday songs like "Silent Night" and "O Tannenbaum" sit next to American Yule Standards like "Please Come Home for Christmas" and "White Christmas," the latter being reinvented in a Django Reinhardt inspired swing arrangement.  Premiering “Please Come Home For Christmas” with Bil…

For those not familiar with Cal Jam 18: General Admission Lawn Only tickets!  http://smarturl.it/CJ18Lawn A year after the legendary debut weekend from which 30,000+ true rock believers have barely recovered... Cal Jam 18 is back for another weekend of joyful rock-n-roll abandon featuring 20+ bands on four stages this October 5-6, 2018. Promoted by Live Nation, the festival returns to Glen Helen Regional Park and Amphitheater in San Bernardino, CA, for an even more monolithic second incarnation of what the Los Angeles Times cited as the reason fans "come to music festivals: to feel connection and catharsis."
The good times begin with the Friday night party on October 5th, where those with camping passes and Friday night tickets will be invited to kick off the festival with 80s punk legend Billy Idol. Also on the bill is Bridget Everett, the comedian who Jerry Seinfeld called, "one of the greatest live performers I have ever seen in my life,"and Mexico City's Mexrri…

ATTILA at White Oak Music Hall - Houston, TX - The Rage Fest Tour - Photos and Review by Chris Brown

The Rage Fest Tour: Attila, Suicide Silence, Volumes, Rings of Saturn, Spite, Cross Your Fingers
Starting off in in Minneapolis, a 6 week rage fest with Attila the headlining act,  tore across the US.  The 4 piece outfit boasted guitar cabinet walls, and an impressive light and smoke show throughout. Kicking off the show with popular tunes such as Three 6, About That Life, and Callout, Attila put on one hell of a show for Houston, TX. 
At one point, Atilla singer Fronz, invited 2 of age participants from the crowd to enjoy a shot with the frontman on stage, before diving back into the packed downstairs at White Oak Music Hall.
The Rage Fest comes to a close in San Francisco tomorrow on August 25th. One more chance left to catch this wild act!
