Not many artists can pack out back-to-back shows of a 9000+ seat outdoor theater in the cold and rain AND have the crowd excited about it like The Fray. Some were calling them the “rainy day band” that night and it’s true. The Fray have done this more than once at Red Rocks. A few years back they had a torrential downpour occur during the show and the harder it rained the louder the crowd got. Some staff that night were comparing it to the now infamous 1983 concert and filming of “U2: Live at Rocks“. Unfortunately they swore to never play Red Rocks again after that, here’s to hoping that NEVER happens with The Fray! Continue reading
So did ya catch the Billboard Music Awards over the weekend? We did. Pretty stellar show in our minds. I mean come on… Linkin Park killed it with “Burn It Down” off their soon to be released project Living Things!! As Perez Hilton said “Someone forgot to tell them this was Pop Music’s night”.
Check out their performance:
We would like to congratulate JH Audio Artist Lady Gaga on her wins in the following categories: Top Dance Artist & Top Dance Album for “Born This Way”.
We also would like to congratulate Rihanna for her win in the Top Streaming Artist category.
A big shout out and congratulations to all the artists who won or were nominated for this years awards. You keep on creating the killer tunes, we’ll keep on creating the killer custom ear monitors!
Yeah that’s right…we’ve got a blog now!! Ok, Ok, we might be a little late to the party, or maybe we just wanted to let the others “try” and then swoop in and SMASH their feeble attempts at blogging coolness like a limp boat on the Bering Sea being battered against the rocky shore during a vicious winter storm (ever seen Deadliest Catch, yeah like that, but worse).
So what can you expect from us? Well of course you’ll get the inside scoop on what is going on at JH Audio, meet our killer staff, video interviews of our artists and shots from their shows we attend and maybe even learn something about sound. What we really want this to be about is YOU! Our community and customers! From rockstars to audiophiles, to everyone in-between. We want to talk about what is going on in the community.
Are you a band with a cool new video or album, let us know! We’ll be keeping tabs on award shows and new “toys” (AKA really expensive pieces of audio equipment that most normal people cannot afford, or should not be eating a diet of Ramen and Gatorade while living in Mom’s basement for a month to afford) that match well with our earphones, or we think is really cool.
So that’s what we have planned. Got some ideas or things you want to see here on the blog? Drop us a line !
