DANKO JONES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

DANKO JONES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

The first time I heard Danko Jones “Bounce” I was overtaken. His sound was so different, so fresh. It had a funk to it but was also balls-out hard rock. The song used to play on the radio in the kitchen at work or in my car while I was delivering pizzas thanks to the only radio station I would consent to listen to at the time, 97.7HTZ FM. I steadily collected the recorded works…

GREEN JELLŸ – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

Sometimes it’s good to try new things. Get out of your comfort zone. I did just that at Sweden Rock 2019. All hell-bent for leather on seeing Saxon on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at the festival, that plan dissipated surprisingly easy. It was suggested to me that “you’ve seen Saxon many times”. Indeed I have, in fact just recently on Monsters of Rock Cruise. “And you’ll see them again”. Most probably, I will, yes. “But…

BURNING WITCHES – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

Once again the first band of the day proves how Sweden Rock should be started! They again, like The Wild! yesterday, hold the “Best Band of the Day” title! I present Burning Witches, a quintet of ladies hailing from Switzerland. Springing to life (or wisping out of a cauldron perhaps), Burning Witches started out in 2015. These “witches” specialize in true Heavy Metal/Speed Metal and the coven already possesses two albums in the catalogue. The…

THE WILD! – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

The Wild! _ Sweden Rock 2019. Canada’s THE WILD! truly are a force to reckon with. They’ve grown a lot in popularity and recognition with good reason, but there’s still so very many not in the know. The band, based out of Kelowna, B.C. launched in 2012. Releasing their first video in 2014 for the song “Roadhouse” brought them airplay on Canadian rock radio. That video going viral brought tours with the likes of Korn,…

GATHERING OF KINGS – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

GATHERING OF KINGS – Sweden Rock 2019 (Blog & Photos)

Gathering of Kings issued their debut album, First Mission, earlier this year. It’s not so much of a regular band, more of a supergroup. A huge supergroup, in fact. As the brainchild of Ron Dahlgren, Gathering of Kings (also monikered as GOK) is a collection of talented musicians from the Swedish Hard Rock scene. Featuring members of Pretty Maids, Crashdiet, Masterplan, Saffire, Therion, and Night Flight Orchestra the roster is a veritable who’s who of…

KANSAS – C.N.E. Bandshell (Photo Gallery)

I recently had the pleasure of shooting Kansas in Toronto at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE). It was 41 years and 1 day after I saw them in the summer of 1977 during the same Exhibition. This time it was at the jam-packed CNE Bandshell as opposed to the old Exhibition Stadium when April Wine opened up for them. One year later I saw them at the massive Canada Jam Festival at Mosport Speedway outside…
