Before Ten65 brings multitudes to the streets of downtown Mobile, the Jewel on Joachim will be setting the mood, as Blackberry Smoke returns to the Saenger Theatre. This Atlanta-based band continues a musical legacy that has revived Southern rock in its purest form. From countrified ballads to rocking jams, Blackberry Smoke explodes in the live setting.
Blackberry Smoke is on the road in preparation for the release of its “The Southern Grounds Sessions” EP. This album is being touted as “an acoustic accompaniment” to the group’s last full-length, “Find a Light.” “The Southern Grounds Sessions” provides raw, earnest versions of the tracks on “Find a Light,” and also features a collaboration with Amanda Shires on Tom Petty’s classic “You Got Lucky.”
Cordovas will be opening with new music from their latest release, “That Santa Fe Channel.” The crowd should prepare for a setlist filled with classic West Coast country rock in the style of early Grateful Dead. Highlighted by spirited piano work and gorgeously layered harmonic vocals, Cordovas are sure to please both those familiar with and new to their music.
