How can those ingredients not make a perfect place to have a festival? This is a place you have to visit if you’re a lover of bourbon, a lover of food…a lover of life.

LOUDER THAN LIFE flyer with band lineup and venue details
Based on over 50,000 attendees in 2015, it’s estimated that LOUDER THAN LIFE generated $13 million in economic impact to the city of Louisville, including more than $3 million in hotel revenue and more than 18,000 incremental room nights. Of those attendees, over two-thirds were from outside the Louisville area, and the majority said they came to the city specifically for the event. In addition, over 350 media were on hand to cover the second annual event, coming from around the U.S. and as far as away as the U.K., The Netherlands and Turkey.

“We decided to start a festival in Louisville because it is such a special city,” says Danny Hayes, CEO of Danny Wimmer Presents. “It has a great Mayor, hospitable local government, welcoming CVB and outstanding city services that in turn make our job really easy. We have a long term plan to grow LOUDER THAN LIFE that includes a significant increase to the economic impact we have created in just the first two years of the festival.”

“Louisville is a festival city — and LOUDER THAN LIFE, in just two years, has proven to be a huge success, both in terms of attendance and economic impact to the city. We look forward to many more years of hosting this impressive festival by the impressive Danny Wimmer Presents company,” says Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.

“We know from tourism research that attending a festival is one of the primary drivers for weekend visitation to Louisville,” says Karen Williams, President & CEO, Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Hosting LOUDER THAN LIFE drives lucrative leisure business to Louisville’s hotels, restaurants and attractions.”

Ace Frehley Original KISS Spaceman coming to Mercury Ballroom

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on August 27, 2016

AceFrehley_OriginsCover_5x5_300dpi-2.jpg
Original KISS Guitarist, Ace Freely will play the Mercury Ballroom, Louisville Ky on 8/30.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer ACE FREHLEY has announced Origins Vol. 1, a collection of 12 newly recorded classics from Ace’s formative years featuring some of the biggest names in rock and roll, on April 15, 2016. Most notably, KISS frontman PAUL STANLEY joins ACE on Free’s hit “Fire and Water.” This collaboration marks the first time that Ace and Paul appear on the same studio recording since KISS’ 1998 reunion album Psycho Circus.

Ace spoke with Rolling Stone about the new record, his guest players and recording with Paul after all these years. Rolling Stone writes: Regarding his reunion with Stanley, Frehley shrugs off any residual tension between the two of them. “We’ve always been friends,” he says. “The press seems to amplify negativity. I guess it makes good copy.”

Today Rolling Stone debuts “White Room,” the classic hit originally performed by Cream. Other guests are none other than Slash trading leads on Thin Lizzy’s classic “Emerald,” Lita Ford singing and playing lead on The Troggs staple “Wild Thing,” Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 playing guitar alongside Ace as he sings his classic KISS composition “Parasite” for the very first time, as well as Jimi Hendrix’s “Spanish Castle Magic,” and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready also plays guitar with Ace as he finally sings his KISS “Alive!” mainstay “Cold Gin.” “White Room” is also an iTunes instant gratification track, meaning fans who pre order the LP on iTunes will receive the Cream cover song instantly.

Tedeschi Trucks Band Announces Summer Tour

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on February 23, 2015

CINCINNATI, OH, (February 23, 2015) — Rolling across America on a sizzling summer run, Tedeschi Trucks Band’s “Wheels of Soul” tour brings the Grammy-winning,11-piece blues-rock dynamo together with soul sensation Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, and acclaimed guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, for 20 not-be-missed appearances. Performing at some of the finest outdoor venues in the country, the first of the tour’s two legs kicks off June 5th in Paso Robles, California, and includes a stop in Cincinnati, OH at PNC Pavilion on Friday, June 26.

Tickets for the Cincinnati show $78*, $68*, $48* Reserved Pavilion and $150* Reserved 4-Pack, go on sale to the public beginning at 10:00am on Friday, March 6 at www.Ticketmaster.com, www.PNCPavilion.com, and all Ticketmaster outlets. Charge by phone at 1.800.745.3000. *Ticket prices include parking and are subject to applicable fees. Dates, times and artists subject to change without notice.

Perhaps not since the days of Joe Cocker’s supersized Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour of the early ’70s has this much talented rock and soul hit the road together, suggesting some potentially explosive onstage musical fireworks. Singer and guitarist Susan Tedeschi, who fronts TTB with her husband and guitar virtuoso Derek Trucks, is excited about the possibilities. “Sharon is really soulful and sweet and we know a lot of the Dap-King guys through different projects,” said Tedeschi, also thrilled to share the stage with longtime friend and TTB collaborator Doyle Bramhall II. “There’s a lot to look forward to and who knows—maybe we’ll all get up and play together. The wheels of creativity are turning at all times; it should be fun and could be epic.”

Formed in 2010 with a spirit of adventure that saw Tedeschi and Trucks shelve their equally successful solo careers, Tedeschi Trucks Band has quickly become the vanguard of modern roots music. TTB has already earned a Grammy for its debut album,

Revelator, followed with a dynamic live double disc, Everybody’s Talkin,’ and most recently released Made Up Mind. Driven by Trucks, #16 of the top 100 Guitarists of All Time (Rolling Stone), and Tedeschi, blessed with a voice that passionately delivers a range of powerful R&B belters to gentle ballads, the group enlists two drummers, two vocalists, a three-piece horn section, bass, and a multi-instrumentalist keyboard player for what is a greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts collective.

Combining inspired Memphis soul with post-war electric blues and classic songcraft into an award-winning sound, TTB has captured the admiration of both concert audiences and critics worldwide – recently touted as “a deeply skilled groove machine” (

Los Angeles Times). With its legendary live performances featuring a growing repertoire of original material and an astounding range of songs by anyone from blues pioneers Blind Willie Johnson and Elmore James to present-day Ray LaMontagne and David Bowie, TTB thrives on shaking things up and challenging itself. They’ve recently introduced an intimate acoustic segment into their live set, and fans this summer can also expect to hear new originals that the band has been working on for their next album.

Having wrapped up his 15-year tenure with The Allman Brothers Band, Trucks is entering 2015 with full-time focus and a jam-packed itinerary of TTB concert dates. After launching the new year with their own annual Sunshine Music Festival in Florida, two nights at Nashville’s storied Ryman Auditorium, and a performance by Derek and Susan at February’s high-profile MusicCares concert honoring Bob Dylan, TTB will jump on the festival circuit again, with an inaugural mainstage appearance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in April and a return to Lock’n in September. Additionally, the group has also lined up another trip to Europe this fall after two treks there in 2014.

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have been hailed as one of the leading forces in the revival of classic soul and funk. The band has traveled the world for more than a decade, blowing minds with their electrifying live performances and their raw, hand-crafted studio recordings. The Brooklyn based 11-piece group delivers sharp, danceable funk grooves, impassioned singing and sweet soul hooks that stay in your head for days on end. The group is touring behind it’s sixth album under the renowned independent Daptone label, 2014’s

Give the People What They Want, which was recently honored with a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album. The prolific power-house and survivor that she is, Sharon Jones has fully recovered from a 2013 cancer diagnosis and bounced back with one of the biggest years of her career, filled with milestone accomplishments and a renewed energy for life.

Doyle Bramhall II is well-known for his extraordinary guitar work, but also as a distinctive vocalist, composer and producer. Just 18 when he was recruited by Jimmie Vaughan to play with the Fabulous Thunderbirds, two years later Doyle co-founded the Arc Angels with Charlie Sexton and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s rhythm section: Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon. So impressed with Doyle too, Eric Clapton invited Bramhall to join Clapton’s group full-time and their association flourished. Collaborations with such as artists as Sheryl Crow, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Elton John, Gary Clark Jr., Erykah Badu, and Gregg Allman have kept Doyle highly in-demand. He is now completing his fourth solo album, launching the next chapter of his musical journey.

 About the Neville Brothers:

Throughout their long careers as both solo performers and as members of the group that bore their family name, the Neville Brothers proudly carried the torch of their native     New Orleans’ rich R&B legacy. Although the four siblings — ArthurCharlesAaron, and Cyril — did not officially unite under the Neville Brothers aegis until 1977, all had crossed musical paths in the past, while also enjoying success with other unrelated projects: Eldest brother Art was the first to tackle a recording career, when in 1954 his high school band the Hawketts cut “Mardi Gras Mambo,” a song that later became the annual carnival’s unofficial anthem. Both Aaron and Charles later joined the Hawketts as well, and when Art joined the Navy in 1958, he handed Aaron the group’s vocal reins. In 1968, Allen Toussaint put together a house band for various recordings that eventually became the Meters, which featured Art without Aaron and Charles. In 1975, the Meters backed the Wild Tchoupitoulas and enlisted Aaron and Charles for the recording sessions. In 1977, they officially banded together as the Neville Brothers and they went on to create music history with iconic albums and classic songs such as:  “Yellow Moon,” “Sister Rosa,” “Mardi Gras Mambo,” “Fiyo on the Bayou,” “Live on Planet Earth,” “Brothers Keeper,” “Voodoo,” “Bird on a Wire,” “With God On Our Side,” “Hey Pocky Way,” “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Drift Away,” “Liza Jane” and “Big Chief,” among many others.
