New Stuff… The natural progression of things

It’s been a productive week, and a lot of things are falling into place. I like it so much better when you get to the point of happening to stuff, rather than it always happening to you. haha.

Not to mention all the BIG things on the horizon with myself , and the Artist Co-op. My friends from Fargo Strut are working on the next album and working hard to get the music out there. Love what’s happening in that camp!!  BTW, We got the new band shirts in and they ROCK! Go up to the menu and hit the contact button if you’d like to rock one yourself.

This Celtic influenced design, with the Battle Axe and Dragon, pays homage to the band leaders roots. As the band name pays homage to his childhood roots and a love of  Memphis wrestling legend Jackie Fargo doing the Fargo Strut.

I’m going to take you back on this one, with Take Ride. This video was the first live show that “Fargo Strut” played… hosted by yours truly @ FultzFest.   Still finding themselves, this three piece version of the band features Chad Grant on bass, who happens to now be killing it with Killing Grace. Since then Tony Emerton (bass) and Mike Porter (guitar) have joined Jeffery Turner (lead guitar) and the man behind the band Billy Atkisson on drums, vocals and visions! Still love this song and thanks for letting me ride along!

And the flyer from that event…

Speak with a Fist!

Nashville Rock News… Saturday March 18th. The new CD by Killing Grace was officially released on the world. To celebrate, they threw a party at Revelry Bar and Grill in Hendersonville, TN, and played an incredible 24 song set which covered the new album and included old favorites. Big Shout Out to band manager Carla Sisco, for putting together a great show and allowing me to bring the camera along!

Beginning with Belfast 6 Pack

To Kick off the show Belfast 6 Pack drove down from Knoxville, TN and sounded great! I love discovering new music!

Up Next was Medicine Mann

Charlie Kavanagh sings from way down deep in his soul and put on a killer show with the rest of the band!  This really got the stage and the crowd warmed up for Killing Grace!

The Main Event … Killing Grace!

I just have to say, This band is great live! It’s always high energy and interactive with the crowd, as Matthew Edmonson doesn’t allow for any dull moments between songs..Along with Colt Hendricks and Brandon Bell manning the guitars, Chad Grant on bass and Rob McKee on drums. The love these guys have for the music and each other ( the fans too, as far as that goes) really shows through this live show! Maybe it’s the ” Bloodline” 🙂

I had the pleasure of introducing my oldest son, Deven, and (soon to be) daughter-in-law Carissa to the band, and sharing some new music with them.
