Blackfoot - Friday October 9
Blackfoot was originally formed in 1970’s by Rickey Medlocke, current lead guitarist of Lynyrd Skynyrd. Blackfoot has always been defined by their hard rock edge, evident on their most successful singles “Train, Train” and “Highway Song.” In 2012, Medlocke recruited a completely new line-up of the band to continue the music of Blackfoot for new generations. Blackfoot is currently booking. If there’s one thing Rickey Medlock can’t do, it’s sit still. The Blackfoot co-founder and Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist is constantly looking for ways to challenge his creative impulses, and his latest pet project has been to shepherd the next-generation incarnation of his beloved Blackfoot. Under Medlock’s steady guidance, lead guitarist/vocalist Tim Rossi, Jeffrey Shields vocals, Seth Lester guitarist, John W Lee bassist and Wesley James drummer.
Black Stone Cherry - Saturday October 10
Family comes first—you can never forget who was there with you from the start. The Edmonton, Kentucky-based rock n' roll quartet Black Stone Cherrywas raised on musical forefathers such as Cream, Led Zeppelin, Muddy Waters, and the Faces, among other 1970s staples, and, now, with its sixth album, Family Tree, BSC salutes its classic rock heritage and honors its legacy with a beast of a Southern rockn' roll album."We caught divine intervention with this one," guitarist Ben Wells says with a good chuckle. "We hit a creative spark and tapped into a spirit and a fire we hadn't before." Drummer John Fred Young adds: "Family Treeshowcases all of our collective musical influences and how we have taken those to create something that is truly our own unique Southern American Rock ‘N Roll Sound."For 17 years, Black Stone Cherryhas put forth a new vicious breed of Southern rock, injecting youthful vitality and a myriad of fresh new influences into the beloved American rock tradition. To date, the band has released five critically acclaimed albums, and one well-received blues EP. Black Stone Cherry has also rocked 12,000-cap arena shows, topped the UK charts,and shared the stage with a diverse roster of superstars, including Def Leppard, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company, Motörhead, and ZZ Top.Black Stone Cherrycame together in 2001 in Edmonton, Kentucky, eventually coalescing around the lineup of Chris Robertson, vocals and guitar; Ben Wells, guitar and vocals; Jon Lawhon, bass and vocals; and John Fred Young, drums.Young's dad Richard, and his Uncle Fred, are two members of the iconic country-fried rock n' roots band The Kentucky HeadHunters, and the high school-aged boys came up honing their craft in the group's Practice House, a 1940s bungalow."We grew up in the Kentucky Headhunters' rehearsal space, looking up at posters of Cream, Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep, the Stones, Montrose, and the Faces. We were like kids someone took in a time capsule and put in the woods," says drummer John Fred Young.Like the band's previous album and EP, Black Stone Cherryopted to self-produce and track Family Treeat David Barrick's Barrick Recording, the same studio where BSC recorded its self-titled debut and Kentuckyalbums . BSC also opted to not over-rehearse in advance of the album, instead preferring the immediacy and spontaneity of in the-moment takes. "There was a lot of laughter in the studio this time, and an air of comfort because we had self-produced the last few releases. It helped us get down to the nitty gritty bones of our music," says bassist Jon Lawhon. The band also entrusted guitarist and vocalist Chris Robertson to mix the album. This homespun approach perfectly suited the loose but epiphanic creative sessions that birthed Family Tree.Family Treeboasts BSC's tried-and-true lucky number with its 13 songs, and, like all BSC releases, features songwriting contributions from each member. The result is a modern and meaty blues-based rock album, with unexpected sonic twists like punchy horn sections, barrelhouse pianos, Southern gospel organ, atmospheric synthesizer passages, and forays into funk and country.Two special guests bring Family Treefull circle, one being Chris' 5 year-old son singing backup on the brawny swaggering "You Got The Blues," and the other being jam band icon Warren Haynes' vocal and guitar cameo on the delta stomp of "Dancing In The Rain." The band first met Warren 17 years ago when they first came to New York to showcase for their new label. "I remember coming to New York when we first were signed, and hearing Warren's voice behind me the minute my feet hit the street," recalls bassist Jon Lawhon. "Hearing him play on this track all these years later gave me chills."Having Warren guest on the album was a wonderful gesture of "you're in the family now."It was truly a validation of all the miles the band has clocked on tour, and the dues the guys have paid being away from home."It's amazingto me how four good old boys from nowhere Kentucky can still be around 17 years later," singer/guitarist Chris Robertson says. Ben Wells concludes: "I don't remember how life was outside of Black Stone Cherry. The four of us are family."
