Music history is full of great collaborators. Gilbert and Sullivan, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Lennon and McCartney, Simon and Garfunkel, Hall and Oates, Milli and Vanilli. Okay, so I threw that last...

Here in Charleston there are any number of great cover and tribute bands one can go out and see. Some of my personal favorites are T.N.T. (performing Bon Scott-era AC/DC), G N’ R Lies (playing music...

It doesn’t take hearing more than about twenty seconds of “Don’t Comfort Me,” the first track off Dead 27s new CD “Chase Your Devils Down,” to know you’re in for a great rock experience. Combining...

I first saw Jordan Igoe perform a couple of years ago at one of the great music showcases the Charleston County Public Library puts on at its main branch downtown. I was struck by both her expressive...
