5. ZAC BROWN BAND
Saturday, March 14
“Zac Brown Band became stars in the late 2000s on the strength of the number one country hits “Chicken Fried” and “Toes,” songs that seemed like throwbacks to the country-rock of the ’70s. For a while, ZBB continued in that vein, scoring another breezy, beachy hit with “Knee Deep” and underscoring their ’70s singer/songwriter heritage with the warm, burnished ballad “Colder Weather,” but soon the group proved themselves to be a restless jam band, as eager to crank up the amps as they were to ride a supple groove. This sense of musical adventure led Zac Brown Band to cut both a 2014 EP with Foo Fighters rocker Dave Grohl and to dive deep into pop music on 2019’s The Owl, yet these creative instincts also helped the group cultivate a loyal following who were happy to roll with these changes.” – AllMusic.com Biography
6. FIT FOR A KING
FIT FOR A KING CONCERTSSunday, March 15
“FIT FOR A KING use the tools of heavy music and melodic hooks to honestly explore the dark side of the human experience, ultimately wrenching timeless hope from the jaws of anxiety, depression, and seemingly certain despair.
No matter the pristine picture of self-worth we project, in the unquenchable pursuit of recognition and affirmation, the gnawing anxiousness of guilt and brokenness chews away at our spirits, uncovering new pain and vulnerability. Dark Skies is FIT FOR A KING’s evocative declaration of a hard won victory. “This album is far from happy. It’s about personal struggles,” explains singer Ryan Kirby. “It touches on many subjects relevant to all of our daily lives.”” – Fit For A King Facebook Biography
