Rick Springfield will be bringing a rocking set to the Boardwalk with help from Night Ranger and The Romantics. This show even has a lot of free tickets to be doled out so click their Facebook
Night Ranger will perform their hits for free for all in attendance as a part of the Fox & Friends “All-American Summer Concert Series” for 2015. This is a great way to start your day and enjoy some awesome live music. As this event is super early, I suggest a timely arrival to get the best possible space. There is also free BBQ served up while supplies last.
Okay, so “breaking” is not the proper word since the news hit my frequency last night while I was covering the NYC appearance of Biohazard and could not hammer out a post for you right away. I felt that it was also best to wait a little while and do some confirmation because in these days of Internet hoaxes and fake news you just never know, so after a quick note to the man himself I can safely say that “yes Metal Legions, guitarist Joel Hoekstra has indeed joined the legendary Whitesnake”.
The Details: In my humble opinion, Night Ranger continues to be one of the best Hard Rock bands that are still out there rocking their longtime fans along with those who might have been late to the party. They are providers of legendary tunes such as the radio blockbuster “Sister Christian” but as any diehard will tell you, that is just the icing on the cake when it comes to this band. I have to say that “Midnight Madness” remains one of my very favorite albums to this day but the guys don’t stop there as they will be delivering classics along with new material from “High Road” their latest release. With the holiday weekend upon us, I cannot think of a better way to make the summer even hotter than by hitting their show at the legendary B.B.King Blues Club and grill and thanks to their marketing team, PiercingMetal is going to be putting some fans into the show for free. Read more below on how to participate.

Welcome back. I apologize for the brief pause in the series but I did want to get the “Music Milestone” posting about “Defenders Of The Faith” live before too many days had passed and then we had some other things that were time sensitive in my Metal Presentation. So now we are back and hitting you with the sixth installment, I hope you enjoy it.
1. Joel Hoekstra (Night Ranger/Trans-Siberian Orchestra): For 2014, my New Years resolution is to cherish every moment onstage with Night Ranger, Rock of Ages and Trans-Siberian Orchestra and also give my all to a couple of fun recording side-projects I have going. It’s gonna be a GREAT year!
2. Kobra Paige (Kobra and The Lotus): Another new year is a wicked thing because not only does it mean more rip-roaring heavy metal memories, it means new music. This year is going to bring another musical evolution for Kobra and the Lotus and we can’t wait to share it! To all of our amazing supporters and new friends to come, we can’t wait to see you all out there. HORNZM/M
