Audio Still Magazine had the privilege of hitting the road with Eric Church in Virginia for a couple of shows on the Blood, Sweat and Beers tour. For the fall leg of the tour, Church has brought along Kip Moore and Justin Moore as support acts. I think that Kip and Justin have gained many new fans over the last few months touring with Eric Church. Kip and Justin put everything they have into their performance night after night. These acts are not to be missed.
As the hands of the clock hit 9pm, the Eric Church band and crew ready to take to the stage for the rest of the evening. For Church concert veterans, they know that when “Electric Worry” comes over the PA system, it is show time. House light down, volume up and the band hits the stage for what is to be a night that concert goers will not soon forget.
The entire band and crew truly love what they do and you can see everyone’s work shine night after night when they all give every ounce of energy that they have to bring you the best show. Do yourself a favor, attend an Eric Church show. As 2012 comes to a close for Eric in what has been a monster year for the artist, Church readies himself for the 2013 tour with Kenny Chesney.
As summer drew to an end, things were just getting heated up at the Mullins Center at Umass Amherst. The fall leg of Eric Church’s Blood, Sweat and Beers tour was getting ready to kick off. Final preparations were being made throughout the day to make sure that everything was in place for the show that night.
The crowd began to fill the arena around 6:30pm for the 7:30 show. To kick off the show was country newcomer Kip Moore. With songs like “Beer Money” and his hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck”, Kip started to get the crowd fired up.
With no relation to Kip Moore, Justin Moore had the task of keeping the crowd on their feet, and that he did. With songs like “Beer Time” and “I Could Kick Your Ass” Justin was quick to gather the crowds attention. He also played his hits such as “Bait A Hook”, “Backwoods” and his huge hit “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away”.
Then the time came. The time of the night when the band, crew and fans could see endless hours of work by a dedicated team come together for an entertaining night of music. As smoke poured around the stage, and the first notes of “Country Music Jesus” came over the PA, Eric Church rose from the depths of the stage. Far from what you would think a country music concert would be, Church wowed the audience with his hard rocking, pyrotechnic filled show.
Eric Church is not one to disappoint. Playing all of his hits such as “Smoke a Little Smoke”, “These Boots” and one of the summer of 2012’s biggest, “Drink In My Hand”. To close out the night, Church elected to play what just might be the biggest hit of his career, “Springsteen”
Nashville recording artists The Farm were on hand for Portland Maine’s 39th Annual Old Port Festival on Sunday June 10th 2012. The day was filled with food, crafts and entertainment in Portland’s Old Port District. Narrow cobblestone streets, small gift shops and a wide selection of restaurants made for the perfect setting. The Farm, consisting of Krista Marie, Damien Horne, Nick Hoffman and Will Denton on percussion, flew from Nashville just for this show. As the band took the stage, crowds gathered closer and closer to the stage. Playing a selection of songs off their upcoming album (July 17th, 2012 – Warner/Elektra Records), they band got the crowd dancing to the music. They also included a few cover songs in their set as well. The highly energetic band kept the crowds attention the entire set. Their first single “Home Sweet Home” got the crowds attention and had them singing along with the band. The band took time after their set to sign autographs and take pictures with many of the luck fans that came out to see them.
