It’s been a couple of years since we’ve had Cactus come a calling on us in New York City and you know that when they do so that you want to be at the ready for the kind of Heavy Blues Rock that they bring to the table. The show would be at the expected location of B.B. King Blues Club and if you want to see the review and all the photos you can click the logo below to be taken to our report on the main PiercingMetal.com website.

It’s been awhile since we found the American Led Zeppelin hitting the stage of B.B. King Blues Club and since we know that when they play how all are in for a rocking good time we had to help celebrate their return. You can check out the full concert report by clicking the logo below, it will take you to the article on the main PiercingMetal.com site. After that we invite you to enjoy some candid moments from the show by scrolling on down further in this post.
Even though I was still finding myself working on some of the recent concert adventures, I would be present at the show that Zebra did at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill and make it my closing show for 2009. I’ve been a fan of their music for many, many years and always find them entertaining and on top of their game. This evening they would bring along Jimmy Kunes (from Cactus) as their special guest opener and if you want to learn how the night progressed just click their logo below to be taken to our article on the main PiercingMetal.com site.
We scanned the B.B. King’s announcement card that they were leaving out for the tourists and other curious passerby as we liked the look of it. Mark our words that Zebra is a band worth seeing and should you see this familiar image in your travels around Times Square NYC be sure to stop and read what it says so you don’t miss out.
I mention in the context of the narrative’s closing about how while we were pre-gaming for this show at Smiths with Rich Lynch and Missus of Kweevak.com that we started some musical discussions with a trio of visiting Dutch tourists. After a few beers and many laughs, along with a sampling of Zebra music from my Zune player the guys opted to join us at the show. This would clearly be a night that they never forgot since they had such a great time. Thanks Kweevak for the shot, next time make sure no one’s head is blocking someone else’s face. LOL
Many people know of the talented Richie Kotzen based on his work with either Poison or Mr. Big and while those two are to be commended there is really a lot more to the guitar player than we would ever hope to find in either of those bands. As July got ready to close it doors for August the musician would make an appearance at the legendary B.B. King Blues Club in Times Square. We made sure to be a part of the fun in order to share this report with you about how it all went down. Just click the logo below to be taken to our item on the main PiercingMetal.com website. It was truly a night to remember.
Cactus is often referred to as The American Led Zeppelin, and the band that found drummer Carmine Appice and Tim Bogert as their core membership was once again doing their thing at NYC’s favorite venue. PiercingMetal’s Joe Kaufman was on point to deliver the scoop in images and words so to learn more just click their logo below to see the item on the main site.
The Hot Sh*t All-Stars are an interesting side project of Blues-Rock singer Jimmy Kunes, bassist Greg Smith, guitarist Angus Clark and keyboardist Paul Morris. They perform Deep Purple covers and this evening we would catch them delivering that classic album from the band “Burn”. The show took place at Arlene’s Grocery and should you want to learn more just click below to be taken to our item on the main PiercingMetal.com site.
In the annals of Blues-based Hard Rock, the name of Cactus is a well-respected one. They were often referred to as the American Led Zeppelin and their reunion shows are loaded with melody and groove. The band would be returning to B.B. King Blues Club with The Lizards in tow as their opener. Our own Joe Kaufman was on point to bring this show’s highlights to those who could not attend.

Here’s a shot that we captured of the venue marquee. I like to snap this whenever I remember to do it. I am sure that eventually it will become second nature.
