It’s not often that authentic Southern-fried rock takes over the Virgin Mobile Mod Club. But on a cold Tuesday night, the house was jammed by diehard fans from Barrie, Oshawa, Buffalo and beyond. That says a hell of a lot about a band that barely gets any mainstream radio airplay (save for 94.9 The Rock)
Anointed by Lynyrd Skynyrd as the second greatest southern rock band around, Blackberry Smoke is as downhome as it gets. Good ol’ boys from Atlanta, who aren’t trying to re-invent the wheel. Their groove is solid and soulful.
