Southern Rock Keeps Rolling Down the Road Thanks to RVA’s The Trongone Band and Nashville’s The Vegabonds:

Call these southern rockers the breeze, cause they kept the twang alive in the world of rock on Georgia’s red clay last weekend. Richmond’s The Trongone Bandferociously took a stranglehold on the crowd with their twangy, rootsy Southern sounds a la The Band and Lyrnyrd Skynyrd. Singer Andy Trongone was rocking a Georgia tee shirt with his butterscotch blonde Fender Telecaster, and on June 23rd the band will be back in Georgia in good company (Blackberry SmokeThe Marcus King Band) for the Big House’s Annual Summer Jam at Kingsland Farm in Hawkinsville, GA. Nashville’s The Vegabonds had the same southern snarl with an accessible set of tunes complete with firm musicianship, whilst the band nailed ‘the look’ like they were Sixties rockers at 1969’s Atlanta International Pop Festival
