The Reverend Horton Heat @ Jannus Live – 2024

I had high expectations for this show. I last caught The Reverend Horton Heat back in 2010 and somehow 14 years went by. In that time my friend Vicki managed to catch every single tour. Feeding off her excitement and my memories of that last show I was pretty amped up. TL;DR:  this show absolutelyContinue reading “The Reverend Horton Heat @ Jannus Live – 2024”

Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies @ House of Blues, Orlando – 2024

Dropkick Murphys @ Jannus Live

Its been over 10 years since I’ve seen Dropkick Murphys, and they were just as dynamic and fun as I remember them being!  Jessie Ahern opened the show.

I grabbed oneContinue reading “Dropkick Murphys @ Jannus Live”
