Saluting Musicians!

Every now and again you run into someone that isn’t aware that (insert band) is still touring. It’s overwhelming when you have so much information on said band and you don’t know the person well enough to even say, “Hey, did I hear you say you like Culture Club?” For many of us, finding out that someone isn’t aware that Tears for Fears have had newer music past Seeds of Love is enough to make us faint and fall out. Who else has chocked on their drink or clutched their pearls on those rare occasions you hear someone ask, “Whatever happened to Tears for Fears?” By the time you get your bearings the person has already wondered off and it’s too awkward to say anything in passing.

But there you are the loyal soldier of sound attending shows, active on the bands’ social and interacting with other fans. You are the meat and potatoes of the music industry! But so are the bands. These guys are spending their days and nights working hard to get music to us, leaving behind families and relatives, other money making opportunities to bring you a song from your past. It’s a cyclical support and each of us plays a part. So pat yourself on the back and dance your arse off at the show. May we always be able to support and be there for one another…long live the band and fan relationships!

Enjoy some snippets from the recent 80s Music Extravaganza Tour and two artists from Retro Futura’s summer sensational series!
