Hey all,

I have always been a Southern rock fanatic and love all the "classic Southern bands." Unfortunately many of them have slowed down with recording new material or are hanging on with maybe only one original member playing their greatest hits. Which is still fine (stage patter and onstage tuning from the Allman Brothers, Outlaws, MTB, ZZ Top and the rest is better than anything new from Lady Gagme or Beyonce)...but its always good to discover some new acts who are carrying on the torch.

Here are some great new Southern Rock bands that I have come across over the past few months:

Swampdawamp (From Concord, NC)
Preacher Stone (From Stoneville, NC)
Phantom Wingo (From Georgia)
Blackberry Smoke (not sure where they're from)
Double Wide (From Georgia)
Bo Bice
Outformation

Anybody know of any other up and coming artists who are bringing Southern Rock back?

BD

Hill Country Revue (Hernando, Mississippi)

Cody Dickenson and Chris Chew of the NMA are in this side project, and these boys can bring it. I'd highly recommend their first one, Make A Move.
Guitar heavy, psychadelic, getdown Southern rock.

If you can't turn it loose during their rip of "Georgia Women" with Cody on electric washboard and Kurt Smithhart tearing up a basic Hill Country Blues slide figure over and over.....well, its my humble opinion that somethings wrong with yer azz....

Chris Chew is no longer a member of either Hill Country Review nor The North Mississippi All Stars......btw,I'm a huge fan of both bands & hated it that Chris quit....

Where did you hear that? I thought Chris was doing some solo stuff so Cody and Luther played some gigs as Duo Loco or something like that. All the NMA members are involved in lots of side projects but this is the first I'm hearing he quit.

Yeah, my understanding was that Big Chew was going to be working on a gospel type side effort. Maybe he's putting that together right now.

I know the HCR is working on the 2nd disc right now, and with the Crowes taking a hiatus after this year, it looks like the NMA should get it cranked up again full time again just in time for the Spring/Summer '11 concert season.

Hard to believe Big Chew walked away, unless it was for health reasons.
Talking to him after a couple shows, he seemed to be really happy to be on the road playing, and meeting folks.....

As far as DuoLuco (2 Crazies?), appears to be just the brothers trying to play a couple dates with Robert Plant. I think they open 2,3 shows for him, then a week later Luther goes on the road w/ the Crowes.

But man if Luther came out and played a bit with Buddy Miller (who's in Plant's touring band this go around), that'd be something....

Lingo!

AKA - Bill's band of angels. A bunch of us first heard these youngun's at Bill Ector's post-memorial service pizza wake (for lack of a better term). If you haven't heard 'em - check 'em out! Buy their CD - if you don't like it, I'll refund your money.

Well I really really like Tishamingo but haven't they essentially stopped playing as a group. I like Outformation as well but ditto for them. The Lingo record I bought and enjoy.

The Steepwater Band out of Chicago is a fantastic trio. If you've never heard Jeff play guitar, do yourself a favor, the people on this site would love him. Plays like Warren, but a third of the size.

not to thread hijack, below is from Chris' myspace page (not sure when this was last updated or if its still current).

quote:
When the North Mississippi All-stars are not on tour, Chew dedicates to his solo projects. Chew has built his own band with fellow musicians from Jackson, MS to form Big Chew and the Crew. He describes it as a more funk/jazz type band than NMAS. Big Chew and the Crew have been touring several colleges in the Mississippi and Alabama region and have been doing work for a new production company in New Orleans called Sly Productions. Music production is another one of Chew’s talents. Working with artists such as Dwayne Burnside and Dave Kimbrough, the list of references just keep coming. An eager audience awaits the announcement of Big Chew Productions as he will be working with various genres of music, but mainly his roots of gospel music.

Currently Chew is prepping for the Solid Blues Tour with Mavis Staples, Charlie Musselwhite, and Joe Krown, that will be touring over 30 date through November. Be sure to check out North Mississippi All-stars on their website to check for locations and dates.


maybe he is just taking some time off to do some side projects. hopefully he'll be back with NMAS and HCR.

Lots of great bands out there today. I like to think Duane had a lot to do with that.
The Skydogs Band will be opening for Hill Country Revue this saturday in Anniston at the Blues and BBQ Festival. Yaaa-hoooooo.........

Hey everyone Hugh is right on about Chris Chew..he left HCR several months ago Doc Samba is now playing bass for them.....my wife and I run into Chris around town and he is working a day job he said he needed the steady money...its sad cause i think he is an awesome bass player.....hopefully he will re-emerge music is in his blood..think about it he Luther and Cody hit the road at a young age as NMAS

Anyway Cody and Luther have been playing as DuoLoCo without Chris...not as NMAS

welll from the mouth of Chris he wasnt happy with some of the gigs HCR was being sent to. He said one show there were like 5 people ... and the band traveled many miiles away from the mid south

On a good note they have completed the recording of the sophmore release and the lst time i chatted with Dan Colburn it should be out soon although the record label is controlling the previews and press...they did play one new song at the Hill Country Picnic last month and dls are on etree

NMAS - Should take this opportunity to refocus and upgrade their musicianship. They could use a better bass player and they could use another guitarist or a really great singer. Luther won't get far unless he upgrades his band. Nothing against Chris. He is fine, but he isn't a top notch musician like Luther is. Same for the drummer, though Cody is good enough. Problem is, it is hard to be a threesome and although they had some early success with their cds, they haven't been able to sustain it because they need to upgrade the musicianship to be a great threesome and or reconfigure the band to round out and fill out the sound. People, many of you, will disagree with me but the truth is that the NMAS has not gone very far in strengthening their fan base since their exceptional cd 51 Phantom CD (2001). I know I am sounding harsh but frankly, being nice won't help them so . . .

Truth and Savage Co are very good. Possibly a little too much like the Eagles (as this video makes them sound) but they are more raw live. Anyway, they are worth checking out, imho. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3F_UgBx4ak They were added to the Mule/Avett Brothers Red Rocks bill.

The Avett Brothers are excellent, but not strictly rock oriented. Same for the next two:

The Carolina Chocolate Drops are interesting. Amelia's Mechanics are as well. I haven't seen them live but they are interesting and I would check them out.

I'm going to go ahead and second the vote for Blackberry Smoke (who are based in Atlanta). Saw them open last summer for Honeytribe and they were fabulous. Really high energy and good musicians. I'd see them again.

Blackberry Smoke:
Guys have been at it for awhile and they show alot of southern rock influence. "Lil Piece of Dixie" is a great CD, I mean the whole CD is great. Heard they are awesome live.

Brantley Gilbert:
He is from Jefferson, Ga is at that crossroads of not being sure where he will go. Country or rock? Great song writer and singer. I would highly recommend his latest CD a listen.
Here is the video "Kick it in the sticks"

Y'all gave me some bands to check out.......... thanks!
