Tribute Series Begins at Downtown Center

May 24, 2012
Rob Caudill will be headlining a super concert at the Downtown Center. Caudill is a dead-on Rod Stewart impersonator. With spiky blonde hair and a plethora of stage clothes, this singer has carved out a career recreating Rod Stewart. People stop him in airports asking for autographs and stare at him in restaurants. And when he struts on stage, people scream themselves hoarse. From kicking out soccer balls and spinning mic stands in his high energy show to belting out all of Rod’s greatest hits, it is a must-see show for all ages. Caudill has been working with the world famous Legends in Concert out of Las Vegas for the past 16 years. He mostly works independently doing his high energy 2 hour show for audiences all over the world.

Sessions 27 pick of the week album is the self-titled album from the band The Lumineers.

May 23, 2012
Do you like Head and the Heart, Mumford and Sons, Avett Brothers? Roll them up into a love child and you have the new indie folk group the Lumineers. The Denver-based trio – Wesley Schultz, Jeremiah Fraites, NeylaPekarek – sings of love and loss in their nostalgic self-titled debut album. Their lovelorn, retro style is complemented by soft vocals and classic harmonies. The album starts with a short acoustic ditty called “Flowers In Your Hair” that could survive with nothing other than the fingerpicking and vocals. A minute in, however, the percussion jumps in and the tempo picks up. Thirty seconds later the cello makes its appearance with a few notes before the song ends with an abruptness that left me yearning for more.
