Las Vegas Music

Tunes in Sin City

 

Music and Las Vegas often go hand in hand. I have live in Las Vegas for about 3 years and just recently had a new musical experience. Mandalay Bay Beach in the Mandalay Hotel and Casino has a great concert venue and I actually went the for the first time a few weeks ago. Let me tell you, it was a blast! You get to stand in the water by the “beach” (yes, there is actual sand) while drinking your favorite adult beverage listening to the band you paid your hard earned money to hear.

As we swayed to the music of Kip Moore, we sipped our cocktails and enjoyed a night at the beach. If you have been to Vegas in July, then you know why it makes more sense to go to the beach at night versus the heat of the day.

Another great place to listen to music in sin city is the House of Blues, also located in Mandalay Bay. It has a cool vibe and atmosphere to listen to the hysterical The Dan Band. We visited THoB with one of our friends who happened to do a bunch of tinting jobs there, so he knew a “guy” that could get us “in”. Anyway check out my buddy’s Las Vegas Window Tinting site for some great deals and awesome service.

The T-Mobile arena open in Las Vegas a few months ago. I would love to go to a concert there. The top 3 I would like to see are:

  •       Dierks Bentley
  •       The Zac Brown Band
  •       Miranda Lambert

There is live music in Las Vegas somewhere every night of the week. One of the best shows I have ever seen was at the Suncoast Hotel and Casino. My parents were visiting from out of town so I took them to my dad’s all-time favorite, The Man in Black – Johnny Cash. Granted, it was an impersonator, but he did the best impersonation I have ever seen. If I didn’t know that Johnny was deceased, you could not have convinced me that it was not him.

Don’t even get me started on the amazing outdoor concerts that host a variety of bands!

One in particular is Bite of Las Vegas hosted my Mix 94.1. It is an all day concert with very popular artists and the fields is covered in food trucks that are also amazing artists. The music, food, fun, and people are an experience everyone should try to take a bite out of. Music is often described as food for the soul and I strongly encourage you to attend so you can feed your soul and your tummy at the same time.

Bro Country?

Hey Bro!!

post brought to you by: Big Valley Towing

 

Women country vocalists are whining that their songs is being pushed off the airwaves by a new team of young, male, “bro-country” artists singing interchangeable tracks about dust roads, pickup trucks, girls in tiny cutoff denims and also beer, great deals of beer.

Carrie Underwood is leading the cost, telling Billboard journal that the c and w company appears to have quite limited area for new women artists, yet that it’s various for the men. “There seem to be many male singers out there that can be considered as similar, and also there appears to be a lot of space for all of them,” Underwood claimed.

Her description of the existing nation scene is quite precise. A recent tale in the Minneapolis Star Tribune described just what is driving the sensation: In the last couple of years, a huge share of young men in the readily coveted 18-to-34 age cohort have actually changed to nation radio, drew there by the tailgate event tunes of Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Eric Church as well as other nation bros.

If bro-country appears to be tightening the lyrical subjects, it is, nevertheless, an additional example of crossover. Before this, boys like Scott, increased in the areas of a big city concerning as far from the South as one can get, would have stuck to rock or hip-hop. Bro-country bid him down the dust roadway.

You’re a nation boy and you’ve got your pickup vehicle as well as your bottle of wine or draft beer (depending on exactly what word you are trying to rhyme it with). Sitting next to you is a nation lady in skimpy cutoffs and also a limited storage tank top. Just place this checklist of products in no specific order, add electric guitars as well as you’ve obtained a smash hit tune.

Our Passion

Let It Roll!!

 

I cannot imagine there is one person (and many animals) on the planet that doesn’t like some form of music. Music plays such a huge role in our lives and we probably don’t even think about it. Music is present in our spiritual rituals, entertainment, mourning and grieving, our daily commute, our iPods, and pretty much anything you can think of.

How many times has a song or a melody triggered a memory? It is one of the most powerful forces on earth. People who are musically gifted are revered by many and held on a pedestal.

One person in particular comes to mind…..Elvis Presley. I live in Las Vegas the land of Elvis. His persona is used to marry people, entertain people, and an iconic legend of Las Vegas.

Elvis was born on January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi, and came from humble beginnings. In the mid-1950s, he appeared on the radio, television and the silver screen. He died on August 16 1977 from a drug over does. He is even more popular now in 2016, especially in Las Vegas and Nashville. Music is what turned this man into an icon. Music has canonized many musicians besides Elvis. The power of music is mythical and boundless.

Soothing!

 

Music is used to treat depression, anxiety, hyper activity, and soothe children with autism. It is amazing the impact it has on our souls whether it be good or bad. Society blames rap music for gang violence or heavy metal for drug use and bad behavior. People even claim music can raise people from a coma.

How is music so powerful to our spirit? The connection between music and the brain is a phenomenon that may never be fully understood. My answer to that is, who cares! You defiantly don’t need to understand the reason behind it to know that it has an effect on your daily life. I know personally music saved my life after a car wreck the radio was still on and it woke me up so I could get out and make it to safety. Fortunately a great Las Vegas Towing Company was driving by and helped me out big time. I am very grateful to them and all they did for me that night. I also thank the wonderful words of elvis for waking me the heck up after the crash.

If you don’t like the music change the channel, if you love it….turn it up!
