TOM KEIFER BAND at Medina Entertainment Center (Concert Review)

TOM KEIFER BAND at Medina Entertainment Center (Concert Review)

Tom Kiefer celebrated his 57th birthday taking the stage with his band in the NW Twin Cities suburb of Medina, MN.  Included on the bill were fellow 80’s stalwart Autograph.  Featuring guitarist Steve Lynch and bassist Randy Rand from the band’s heyday, they are rounded out by drummer Marc Wieland and Simon Daniels, who I’ve seen front the band twice now.  He’s a good singer but not much a front man.  I know fans can…

In those days, one band reigned as the kings of showmanship and technically precise musicianship – Cinderella.

Sunset East at Thee Rock N Roll Residency

Sunset East at Thee Rock N Roll Residency

In 1988 an introverted 11-year-old kid, who had fallen in love with hard rock music just a couple years prior, spent his Saturday nights doing his usual routine; video games (the Nintendo kind), junk food and sodas, and the weekly viewing of Headbangers Ball on MTV. But on one particular Saturday night, he turned off Mike Tyson’s Punch Out a couple hours early and tuned into the music-channel-that-no-longer-plays-music a couple hours earlier. This night was…
