Black Stone Cherry – Rise Above Fest 2014


Black Stone Cherry started their set with “Me and Mary Jane,” ended on “Lonely Train,” and gave the crowd what they do best – deep heavy rock with a dash of Southern sauce. This band slides between 70s classic and country rock, but they aren’t your daddy’s Southern Rock…these boys are rowdy, drop the tail gate, hard as nails rock music. And the fans loved them. Energetic as well as entertaining, BSC delivered a great show. Lead vocalist, Chris Robertson, is fantastic. He opens his mouth and Southern soul and gravel comes out. On guitar, Ben Wells, is high energy, as is bassist, Jon Lawhon. Not to be out done, drummer John Fred Young, falls on the kit like a windmill in a tornado. This was a highlight.
