I don’t think we have talked any where near enough about the band Halestorm at Hard Rock Hideout in 2012, and that has got to change starting now. My first introduction to Halestorm was when, I saw the band play live back in February 2009, when they opened up for Black Stone Cherry and Seether. I was impressed with the band back then, and their live performance has only gotten better since then. I have been wanting to see them live again for a couple of years, and for whatever reason, I kept missing them. In 2012, I have been luck enough to see them three times, including twice this past weekend.
Halestorm closed out their summer U.S. tour with New Medicine and Cavo. Their final two dates were in Cincinnati, Ohio and Lexington, KY. Both shows were well attended, and the Cincinnati show at
Bogart’s was pretty close to being sold out.
New Medicine and Cavo did a solid job opening up both shows, but it was Halestorm that owned the stage. There is a crazy amount of talent in the band, with singer Lzzy Hale, and her brother Arejay on drums, Joe Hottinger on guitar and Josh Smith on bass. Lzzy’s vocals are more powerful now than ever. From her silky smooth vocals to her raging metal like screams, Lzzy Hale is a singer that can simply do it all. She had me mesmerized with the band’s opening number “Love Bites”, and blew me away with their cover of Skid Row’s “Slave To The Grind”. I don’t even thing Sebastian Bach can scream like that anymore.
Arejay Hale has reinvented the drum solo. It has been a long time since I have seen any band do a drum solo. This was such a common thing in the 80’s, and it has seemingly gone by the way side in rock and roll as of late. Mr. Hale is a wildman on the drums. He can hardly be contained by his drum kit. Not only is his drum solo excellent, he also plays bare handed much like former Whitesnake drummer, Tommy Aldridge.
I was blown away by his playing.
Halestorm’s set was exactly the same for the Cincinnati, and Lexington shows, but it didn’t matter. The music both nights was fantastic. It was a great weekend of rock and roll, and I am glad I was able to catch Halestorm, before they left for their UK Headlining Tour. I only wish they could have played longer!
Halestorm’s Set List was: “Love Bites”, “Mz. Hyde”, “It’s Not You”, “Familiar Taste of Poison”, “Rock Show”, “American Boys”, “Don’t Know How To Stop”, “Break In”, “Private Parts”, Arejay’s drum solo, “Slave To the Grind”, “You Call Me Bitch Like It’s A Bad Thing”, “I Miss The Misery”, “I Get Off” and “Here’s To Us”.

One of the bands I had the pleasure of seeing and shooting at Rock on the Range this year was St. Louis, Missouri’s Cavo. Cavo is no stranger to Rock On the Range. 2012 was their third trip to this massive Columbus, Ohio music festival. Ironically, their video “Celebrity” includes live clips of the band’s 2011 appearance at Rock On The Range. I liked the band’s sophomore effort, Bright Nights Dark Days, but I haven’t seen them play live since the Crüe Fest 2 in 2009. I enjoyed their set, and thought their new songs were pretty good. I will definitely be picking up their new album, Thick as Thieves, as a result of seeing this show.
If you haven’t given Cavo a listen, you should definitely check them out.

ROCK ON THE RANGE 2011:

LINE-UP ALSO INCLUDES PERFORMANCES FROM
DANZIG, HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY AND ALTER BRIDGE
ROCK ON THE RANGE is celebrating its Fifth Anniversary! America’s premier destination rock festival–May 21-22 at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio–will feature a spectacular lineup of rock heavyweights including A Perfect Circle (first performance of 2011), Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, Korn, Stone Sour and Staind (first performance in two years). The unforgettable weekend will also be highlighted by performances from Danzig, Hollywood Undead, Bullet For My Valentine, Black Label Society and Alter Bridge. In addition, Juliya of Fuse TV will return as the Mistress of Ceremonies for the event.
“Three years ago my other band Ashes Divide was fortunate enough to play Rock On The Range as a support act; to return to the same festival and headline this year with A Perfect Circle is truly an honor,” says Billy Howerdel of A Perfect Circle.
“We are honored that Rock On The Range has asked us be one of the headliners,” says M Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold. “Not only is it an amazing show to be apart of, but it holds a deep spot in our hearts. Rock On The Range was the last American show we played with our best friend and drummer, The Rev. We are looking forward to continuing his legacy of rock n roll insanity that night! See you all there.”
“If you suffer from stimulus overload, the fifth anniversary of Rock On The Range may be too much for you,” quips Del Williams, co-executive producer of the event for Right Arm Entertainment. “Virtually all of the bands that make up the top of the Active Rock charts are performing at America’s biggest Rock festival. When you look at the acts on the bill, and think of the massive list of songs that live in the body of that lineup, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with excitement.”
The ROCK ON THE RANGE celebration will start early on Friday night, May 20 with the nation’s biggest pre-festival Anniversary Party at the venue, featuring performances from two of the world’s craziest throwback rock artists–Steel Panther and Lez Zeppelin. Best of all, your ticket to the Anniversary Party will be absolutely FREE with every ROCK ON THE RANGE weekend ticket purchase!
“It seems like only yesterday that we created this vision for an active rock festival in the heartland, but it’s actually been five years now.” comments Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the event for AEG Live. “If it weren’t for the loyal fan base of active rock fans, the ‘Rangers,’ Rock On The Range would still just be an idea on the back of a napkin! We can’t think of a better way to say ‘thank you’ then to throw a big FREE party for everyone! It will be a night of unmatched celebration!”
A special ROCK ON THE RANGE ticket pre-sale will take place from Wednesday, February 9 at 10:00 AM (ET) through Friday, February 11 at 10:00 PM (ET). For details on pre-sale, go to: www.facebook.com/rockontherange. Tickets go on sale to the general public Saturday, February 12 at 10:00 AM (ET).

Presented by Right Arm Entertainment, AEG Live and Crew Stadium, ROCK ON THE RANGE is a two-day, multi-stage music and lifestyle event featuring a potent line-up of bands on three stages. The nationally renowned festival centrally located in the heart of the country has annually drawn crowds in excess of 30,000 per day since its inception in 2007.
I first heard about the St. Louis, Missouri band Cavo, when they were announced as one of the second stage acts for Cruefest 2. I was relatively unimpressed by their music on myspace. I did see part of their set during Cruefest 2, and I must admit that I thought the song “Champagne” was kind of cool. This led to me checking out their debut CD, Bright Nights, Dark Days, to see if there was more quality rock worth checking out.
After my first spin of this CD, my first reaction is Cavo is not a hard rock band at all. I thought they might be a hard rock act after getting the Cruefest 2 gig. They are more of alternative rock group with a pop/rock slant. The majority of the songs on this CD could have crossover appeal, meaning the songs could turn up on different radio formats. I am just not sure how much this CD will appeal to hard rock fans.
“Champagne” is the lead off single, and unless you haven’t listened to rock radio lately, you have probably heard this song quite a few times. It is a good tune, and is a #1 hit for Cavo.
“Crash” has been released as the second single and is a pretty catchy tune that is in the vein of Daughtry.
“Let It Go” was originally featured on the Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack. It is a more mellow number and a bit too safe in my opinion. I didn’t care for this tune very much.
“Blame” is another tune that screams hit for Cavo. It is a mid tempo number, and one of the harder moments on Bright Nights, Dark Days.
Overall, Cavo has crafted a solid pop/rock album that will likely appeal to fans of bands like Saving Abel, Nickelback, and Daughtry. I wish it had a few more harder tunes for a fan like me, but I can’t deny that there are some quality tunes for mainstream rock fans to enjoy. The band will likely have a few hits on their hands before it is all said and done.

Quickly rising alternative rock band, CAVO, prepares to release their debut album, Bright Nights * Dark Days, on August 11th! The St. Louis band, which began in March 2001, consists of singer Casey Walker, guitarist Chris Hobbs, bassist Brian Smith, and drummer Chad La Roy. The band recorded an EP in early 2007 that caught the attention of a local St. Louis radio station, and was quickly put into rotation while the band began to play live showcases around the country. Record producer David Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin, Paramore) quickly took notice and with him on board, Cavo signed with Reprise Records in October 2008. Now, after nine years together as a band, Cavo is releasing their major-label debut Bright Nights * Dark Days, which includes the propulsive first single “Champagne,” which is in the Top 5 most requested songs at over 60 Rock stations, as well as “Let It Go,” which was featured in the Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen movie and soundtrack.
Currently, Cavo is out on the Crue Fest 2 tour through August!
