For those of you who will not be attending this weekend’s rain-drenched Beale Street Music Festival, here is a taste of what you’ll be missing.
Alice in Chains
Earth, Wind & Fire
Band of Horses
…and a whole lot more. It’s gonna be a good weekend, ya’ll, and I’ll be right in the middle of it, despite the forecasted thunderstorms. If any of you are going to be around let me know and maybe we can hang out at the festival…

I know I mentioned the band Rock Sugar earlier this week, but I just can’t get enough of them. Below is their mash-up “Shook Me Like a Prayer.” Enjoy.

Maybe you live in a house like the one I do. One where you and your significant other have different ideas of what constitutes great music. I like to rock, she likes things softer and easier. She likes Journey, I like Metallica. It may seem like a minor difference until you go to turn on music in the car…
But, maybe there is hope for us…maybe, just maybe, Mars and Venus will somehow collide…
Recently I heard about a band on the radio and it seemed as though our problem has been solved. This musical venture goes by the name of Rock Sugar and they specialize in a type of mash-up in which the band mixes up hard rock songs with pop songs, forming a conglomeration like you’ve never heard before. Their songs employ some strange combinations, including AC/DC and Madonna (You Shook Me Like a Prayer), Joan Jett and Def Leppard (I Love Some Sugar on Me), and many others.
Just check out the clip below, “Don’t Stop the Sandman,” and you’ll understand why their work appeals to Diana and I.
