It was officially day three of the 2014 CMA Music Festival in Nashville, TN. Mike Arnold, Tom Thompson, and Will Perry continued with the concert coverage. Day three lasted about 15 hours and this was after two prior long days! Yes, we were tired but excited to cover more concerts. On this day we started at the packed Riverfront Park to cover LoCash Cowboys, went to the Bridgestone Arena plaza for Chuck Wicks, we then strolled over to the HGTV sponsored barn to see an invitation only solo performance of Sugarland's Kristian Bush, and then completed the daytime shows back at Riverfront Park to see one of our favorite up and coming artists, Maggie Rose. After a dinner and a hour rain delay, we headed over to the stadium to catch Sara Evans, Little Big Town, Darius Rucker, Florida Georgia Line, and closing the night with Keith Urban.

Happy Valentine’s Day from the guys at Concert Blast. Here’s a hilarious podcast on L-O-V-E. When we came up with the idea of a Music Discussion podcast on LOVE, we decided to release it on Valentine’s Day in 2008. Here we are in 2012 with Valentine’s Day being only a few days away, we thought what a great time to re-post one of our most popular Music Discussions. Enjoy our Concert Blast Valentine’s Day Special with Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, and Tom Thompson! At times in this show, Mike was trying to make it soft and sweet, Tom kept sticking his foot in his mouth with his comments, and Brian was getting sick from the sweetness of the show. As he put it, “Guys, we are getting maple syrupy sweet here… Take me to the Car Crashes and Motorcycles Right Now!” You can tell they did have a fun time recording this show. In fact, they came up with over 100 songs to choose from in various categories. The songs were selected by the guys voting for their favorite choices with Mike’s wife, Sandra, selecting the tie breakers. During the recording of the section on the Romantic Songs, Sandra mentioned, “This is too sweet for me and I’m a Female!” Here are the various sections on LOVE with the artist’s we played… INTRO: Bonnie Raitt – Queen – Cheap Trick – Robert Palmer – Huey Lewis and the News – Doobie Brothers – J Geils Band – Eddie Money WANTING LOVE: Georgia Satellites – Jefferson Airplane – Loverboy – Bonnie Raitt EXCITED ABOUT LOVE: Foreigner – Journey – Nazareth – Bon Jovi ROMANCE: Peter Frampton – Journey – Bryan Adams – Cheap Trick – REO Speedwagon MISSING LOVE: John Waite – Aerosmith HURT BY LOVE: Nazareth – Bon Jovi – Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks – Joan Jett BACK TO WANTING LOVE: Queen – Gin Blossoms – Foreigner Visit Our Official Website http://www.concertblast.com

On Friday December 9th 2011 something happened at a music club in Nashville, TN that members of the party rock band from the 80’s, The Crowd, thought would never happen… a reunion show! Two members of the Concert Blast team, Mike Arnold and Tom Thompson, were part of the rock band that began performing cover songs at parties in the early 1980s, decided to write and record a few original songs, had those originals played on the radio and began thrilling crowds at the private parties, rock clubs, colleges, and music festivals. Now in 2011 the guys returned to a rock music club in Nashville, TN, Douglas Corner Café, to perform a reunion show to celebrate their first gig from 30 years ago. Also joining the reunion on stage was Tom’s twin brother and bassist of the band, Jim Thompson, the latest lead guitarist, Gary Conn, and the original lead guitarist, Dwayne Smith.

Show 198 - Music Discussion: Time Songs

por CONCERT BLAST!

Written by Mike Arnold The concert touring season seems to run from the middle of March through the begining of December. While we wait for the artists to hit the road or the Festivals to crank up the music for the large crowds, I decided this would be a great time to re-post our most popular Music Discussion Podcast – Time Songs from October of 2007. Brian Hasbrook brought the idea to Tom Thompson and me, so we individually collected songs from our memory bank and our research then came together to record our podcast to discuss the songs we found and to remember stories of the artists of the songs. Our idea, find songs with the word “TIME” or has to do with time on a clock or time of day. If you think about it, there are several. I know, I know, we will definitely forget the obvious songs. In fact, the songs on the intro are some we forgot. If you have an idea for a Music Discussion podcast, send us an email – concertblast @ gmail.com ENJOY!
