About The B3at
The B3AT is devoted to keeping people plugged in on the latest music, LIVE concerts and festivals, and enriching lives through the awesome power of music!
Having started going to Live Concerts in 1983 and attending some 1000+ shows, I have seen many amazing bands and shows throughout my years. Everything from Classic rock bands like Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, and The Who. To Modern day Jam bands like Phish and Widespread Panic. Also love the Alternative and UK bands as well as a lot of Australian bands like Midnight Oil and The Presets, Tame Impala and Courtney Barnett to name a few.
As far as pop artists I have seen Prince and the Revolution, Madonna, Rod Stewart, Elton John, Billy Joel. Big Alternative bands and shows over the years from the likes of Depeche Mode, Psychedelic Furs, Morrissey, The Cure, INXS, Echo & the Bunnymen, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Bauhaus, Love & Rockets, Ride, Lush, Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, Pixies, LCD Soundsystem, Suede, Kasabian, and of course harder classic alt and punk bands like Ramones, The Damned, Blink 182, The Stranglers, Jane’s Addiction, Bob Mould, and Morphine. I have also have seen and loved Metal bands like Metallica, Alice Cooper, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Poison, Great White, Def Leppard, Ministry and Helmet. I have a softer folkier side with bands and shows, with the likes of the great John Prine, Tegan and Sara, Bob Dylan, Jerry Garcia Band, Bob Weir and Ratdog, String Cheese Incident, and Iris DeMent. I have been to Coachella Music and Arts Festival for the past 10 years, which also has continued to provide the highest level of amazing bands and performances in the state of California. Also attended the only SS Coachella cruise so far where we partied and hung out with the likes of Jarvis Cocker and Pulp, Hot Chip, Sleigh Bells, and of course wine tasting with James Murphy. Such a great experience!
There are truly too many shows and bands to list, but one thing is certain,
I LOVE MUSIC, and all kinds, and I love to still discover new music”
There are a ton of new and amazing bands and artists out there, and one of my major focuses of this page is to promote bands and artists that are new that deserve a listen, or a LIVE show attendance.
Hope you enjoy checking things out and hope to see you and meet at a live show in the future. If you are a music artist or you know someone who deserves a shout out, by all means tune me in. Thanks everyone!
Live your Life LIVE. Cheers!”
