Legendary Band Foghat Rocks The Shed in Maryville Tennessee
Legendary Classic Rock Band Foghat came to the Smoky Mt. Harley Davidson to play the very popular stage called The Shed in Maryville Tennessee.
It was an Extremely Hot day in the mid 90s with heat indexes well into the 100s. But Foghat fans of ALL ages came to see this Legendary Rock band .
Opening the show was classic Rock Super group Hardwired 2. With Cheri Spinazzola (Vocals/Keys) Walter Moore ( Guitar/Vocals) Neal Foster (Vocals/Bass) Dave Jackson( Guitar) and Chris Potocik (Drums). They Truly do Rock! They do everything including some that other bands don’t do like “Electric Eye” by Judas Priest & “Heavy Metal” by Sammy Hagar. Along with AC/DC and Ozzy. Many many more songs to Rock out to.! Each one brings something great to the band . Cheri with her powerful voice and stage presence has the crowd on their feet. Walter and Neil great vocals and guitar/bass skills . Dave The Killer Shredder on the guitar and drummer chris is definitely a showman on those drums! As a special surprise Foghat’s Own Rodney O’Quinn Joined the band on stage for a rousing rendition of the song from Pat Travers called “Snortin Whiskey” with Walter Moore on Vocals. Hardwired 2 are a must see!
Foghat founded in 1971 In London When Lonesome Dave Peverett and Roger Earl Left British Blues band Savoy Brown Foghat was born. They sadly lost Lonesome Dave in 2000 and Rod Price in 2005. but founding member/drummer Roger Earl is determined to keep Foghat’s legacy going. The Iconic band is Rocking just as hard like they always have done since the start of the band.
They have never stopped touring but as all bands have had ups and downs. They have a stellar lineup consisting of Founding member Roger Earl (Drums) .
Charlie Huhn( Singer / who has played with Ted Nugent/Gary Moore/& Humble Pie) Bryan Bassett( Lead Guitarist who has also played with Wild Cherry/and Molly Hatchet) Rodney O’Quinn (Bass Who has played with Pat Travers). Their live shows prove they can still rock as hard today. Their shows have incredible energy and the fans love them!
They started out taking the stage and jumped right into the music doing songs like “ Drivin Wheel” “ Road Fever” “ Take Me To The River” “ Third Time Lucky” “ Fool For The City” “ I Just Wanna Make Love To You” and They Ended The Night with Their Popular song “ Slow Ride” and this time Hardwired 2 Singer Cheri Spinazzola Joined Foghat on stage ! The Whole crowd Erupted with hollers and singing along and just flat out Rocking out. The end of the show The whole band took a bow at the front of the stage to the screams of excited fans. This was an exceptional show and I heard fans calling it “ Awesome” “ Incredible” “ Phenomonal” . I would have to agree it was Incredible!
I Highly recommend seeing them. !!
