I had the pleasure to see Van Zant at the B.B. King Blues Lounge on March 13! For those of you how do not know who they are Van Zant is Johnny Van Zant (singer of Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Donnie Van Zant (.38 Special).
Now I am into southern rock and I think many of you AOR fans will love it also, especially there new CD! The new Van Zant is more on the mainstream rock side and a great listen on the first spin. Many great rockers and ballads.
As for the show it was great! The sound system was excellent and the seating idea was cool. You have the stage and then tables like in Las Vegas style (casino like) then you have divider where the standing only bar crowd is. I got a table in the second row and was never more than 15 feet away from the action. They played songs from there 2 solo efforts together with standouts like "Show Me", "Rage" and new tracks "Oklahoma", Heart Of An Angel". The show stopper was "Brickyard Road", which is an excellent ballad written about there brother and Lynyrd Skynyrd founding singer the late Ronnie Van Zant. They did do a song each from there respective bands "Call Me the Breeze" and "Wild Eyed Southern Boys" and ended the show with a Rolling Stones cover.
All and all is a great place to see a show, expensive on the food and drink side but cheap on the show...only $25 US dollars.
I would rate this show as a 9. The reason it did not get a 10 was because I was hoping for a few more songs from both there main bands.
Andrew if you want a copy of this to put in the soundbites please ask. I feel many of you would pick this CD up and not be disappointed!
