Show Review – Buckle Up Music Festival, 7/18-7/20/14, Cincinnati, OH

The first annual Buckle Up Music Festival arrived on the banks of the Ohio river on July 18-20, and provided a party to look forward to year round in the Cincinnati area and beyond. The rain that fell on July 18 did not dampen the spirits of patrons eager to hear the down home leanings of Amanda Shires and Jamie Lynn Spears. Sam Lewis certainly did not disappoint those coming to hear his bittersweet ballad, “I’m a River,” while the water fell out of the sky near the peaceful settings of the lawn stage. Nashville’s Chris Janson put on a rip roaring set on the Bud Light stage, featuring freewheeling harmonica solos, and material from his long player, Take It to the Bank. Knoxville’s Ashley Monroe’s sunny presence on the river stage had Buckle Up’s denizens dancing and singing along to the roots driven rhythms of her 2013 chart topping album, Like a Rose. Marty Stuart’s classic country style harkened back to his Mississippi beginnings as his guitar playing sizzled through the barn burning classics, “Stop the World and Let Me Off” and “The Whiskey Ain’t Working.” Read more

Show Review #3 – Bunbury Music Festival, 7/11 – 7/13/14, Cincinnati, OH

Anyone who attended Bunbury this year would agree that the lineup was full of bands that were bursting with talent. While all of the bands fit under the Bunbury umbrella, there were several that really stood out as good fits for the Festival. They cover a wide gamut of musical genres, as well as a wide distance from around the country. Whatever their style and origin, these bands had excellent performances and really helped to push the Festival into the success that it was.

Jane Decker played a solid set at the Lawn Stage, attracting a modest crowd. While normally not going the acoustic route, she was determined to play at Bunbury and being forced to play acoustic wasn’t going to stop her. Grabbing a friend to play guitar, Decker sang her heart out to her audience, excited that she won a bet on whether 100 people would show up to her show or not. Listening to this local gem was certainly worth it, and her bubbly, energetic personality made it all the more worthwhile. She showed equal excitement about her upcoming album, which will no doubt be fantastic. Routinely thanking the audience for their applause and attendance, it seems only natural to return the favor and thank her for putting on such a great set. Read more
