Hall and Oates 'Tears for Fears' Tour Hits Orlando

Daryl Hall and John Oates came to the Amway Center in Orlando on Friday night! Tears for Fears came along for the ride as well as soul singer Allen Stone.  Stone opened the show with a short acoustic set with his amazing vocals.  He put his own spin on the David/Bacharach classic “I’ll Say A Little Prayer for You” and The Weeknd “Can’t Feel My Face” as well as his own composition “Love”.  Be sure to check Allen out on YouTube or Facebook if you haven’t already, a great soul voice in the new generation.

Jason Haram- Homegrown Blues

This past week I got the opportunity to catch up with Jason Haram as he wrapped up his evening at the "Strictly Blues on the Bay" Jam at the Swordfish Grill and Tiki that Jason hosts every Thursday night. Jason's workhorse, a 62 Fender Stratocaster sits silent, it's sunburst finish in places completely worn away, it proudly bears the scars of his craft.
