Below are photos from recent shows: Stone Temple Pilots, Halestorm, Black Stone Cherry, Whiskey Myers

Stone Temple Pilots at Kemba Live on May 18th.
It was absolutely incredible seeing one of the most successful rock bands of the 90’s perform. STP has been very influential to me and my guitar playing, having come out of the grunge era of music. I had a blast belting out vocal after vocal along with thousands of other STP fans. Though impossible to see Scott Weiland perform, Jeff Gutt nailed his Scott’s mannerisms, and did an amazing job as frontman. Definitely catch them the next time they are in town!

Halestorm at Kemba Live on May 18th.
Halestorm is a powerhouse ‘hard’ rock band that is known for relentless touring and a killer live show (touring 250+ shows per year). They just released their fifth studio album, Back From The Dead, in May 2022. Lzzy Hale is widely known for her powerful vocals, which are even more impressive when hearing her raw in concert. I need to give a big shoutout to both Joe Hottinger (guitarist) and Arejay Hale (drummer and Lzzy’s brother) for their captivating live performances.

Black Stone Cherry at Kemba Live on May 18th.
Black Stone Cherry was the opener on a night full of stellar music (Stone Temple Pilots and Halestorm). They’re not your typical opener, having spanned 20 years, including 8 albums and more than a dozen singles charted on Mainstream Rock Tracks charts. Great live!

Whiskey Myers at Kemba Live on May 19th.
Whiskey Myers released their debut album, Road of Life, in 2008, and are scheduled to release their sixth studio album, entitled Tornillo, in July of 2022. The band came from a few friends who were learning to play guitar together, and were heavily inspired by Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr., and Waylon Jennings. Whiskey Myers began gaining popularity through their engaging live shows, and in 2018 reached another level of popularity after having a number of songs featured in the hit show Yellowstone. This band truly is a modern day Lynyrd Skynyrd, ranging from the extended southern rock jams, insane guitar solos (and duos) showcasing their musicianship, to mega-rock ballads such as Ballad of a Southern Man. Amazing show!!!
