Jam on the Water to feature English rockers tribute Saturday, May 25th.

The weekend is upon us! Get all the deetz on weekend happenings here!

The Broadcast is back on tour this spring in promotion of their upcoming album From the Horizon. Their second full length LP was produced by the renowned Jim Scott – a Grammy winning producer who has worked with The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, and more. Charleston GRIT was given access to the album ahead of release and it is phenomenal. It is grander in scope than their Dodge the Arrow debut – it sounds fuller, bigger. There’s no doubt that The Broadcast has matured and expanded, but they have not lost their signature soul swagger. It’s clear that Asheville has worn off on the band – you can hear hints of Appalachia sneaking into their sound and in some songs that tendency altogether takes the reins. The result is a delicious amalgam of Folk, Americana, and Soul.

I watched the Republican Debate last night not only for entertainment value (drink every time someone mentions Ronald Reagan!), but also to stay informed. And also, honestly… out of pure confusion. How is Donald Trump ACTUALLY the front-runner to be the Republican Candidate for the upcoming Presidential Election?

Eddie Hogan, one of Lowcountry music's biggest supporters, passed away late last year. This Saturday at The Windjammer friends, family and musicians will gather for a day that celebrates Hogan's life.

The classic rock band Heart gave a superb performance Tuesday night at the PAC, spanning its own catalog and treating the sold-out crowd to some surprises.

Lettuce, the self-proclaimed “modern day rulers of old school funk,” and Break Science wowed the sold-out crowd at the Music Farm this past weekend.

Music blogger Tim Brennan reviews the local band who just released their new, six-song album, Good Luck.

A name is not just a name, it's an idea, and no matter how a band chooses its name, one important fact remains. The name doesn't make the band, the band makes the name. Tim Brennan gives us more.

The Dead have come to life as local band has released a great new collection of rock and soul music. Drummer Daniel Crider talks about what went into the creation of "Chase Your Devils Down."

The 1920s roared back to life last weekend at the Charleston City Jail, transformed into a Gatsby-themed bootleggin', barbershop quartetin' Red Party. Here's a ton of photos from the wild affair...

After liking but not loving the Alabama Shakes album "Boys & Girls," I experienced the band live and in front of a sold-out audience last week... And, okay. NOW I get it...

I attended the Under The Sun Tour at the North Charleston Coliseum and realized a) the music of my youth is now considered "oldies" and b) the lead singer of Smash Mouth really sucks

Watching A-Rod got me thinking: How does someone—be it a baseball player, a writer, or a band—go from the minors to the majors? Here are my 4 CRITERIA for being a great band (or artist, or employee..)

... Or am I lying to myself? IS there life in rock and roll after becoming a father? Here's what my fellow dad-friends and I have figured out so far...
