The Hangout Music Festival (May 15-17) has built a reputation for booking some of the best rock acts in the business. Bands such as The Sheepdogs, Kings of Leon and Queens of the Stone Age have provided fiery sets for the festival’s sun-drenched masses. This year will be no different, with a slough of rockers ready to entertain beachside.
J. Roddy Walston & The Business will be making their Hangout Fest debut after more than a decade of touring and performing. The four-piece of rock power has been expanding their reputation on the national scene as one of the most promising bands on the road. Singer/pianist/guitarist Walston and his band have embraced classic rock sensibilities with their sound and if you want a hint, consider them the soulful love child of Led Zeppelin and Kings of Leon.
In 2013, Walston and the band broke out on the national scene with their infectious single “Heavy Bells.” Last year, they entered the Top 10 on the U.S. Alt. Rock chart with “Take It As It Comes.” Curious rock fans can find these singles on their sixth studio release, “Essential Tremors.”
True rock experiences are hard to find these days. When one does come across pure rock ‘n’ roll, it is always unforgettable. J. Roddy Walston & The Business will have no problem providing the ideal rock experience, and it will be undeniable from the first riff.
