Eric Gales Pours His Emotions and Soul into Riff Heavy Blues and Rock n’ Roll Set

in Concerts by

Eric Gales was unforgivably not on my radar until last year when I interviewed New Orleans jam, funk band, Earphunk.

in Concerts by

I’ve seen many legends perform before. The concerts usually go like this: Play some hits early. Then play some new stuff mixed with mediocre old stuff. Finally, bring it home with a rocking encore of greatest hits. That wouldn’t even describe the warm up DJ, who spun up the crowd with some Beatles mashups that were funky and fresh. At…

Phish just wrapped up the East Coast portion of their 25 date summer tour, and now head west for dates at famed venues such as The Gorge and the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in the coming weeks. I hopped on tour for a five-show run beginning in Philadelphia on June 28, catching two shows at…
