Big Gun The #1 AC/DC Tribute Rocks The Shed Maryville Tn. As Season Finale.
Big Gun , The Number One AC/DC Tribute band brought lots of “High Voltage Rock and Roll” to The Shed in Maryville Tennessee on September 28th 2019 to close out The Sheds regular concert season . The Shed is part of the Smoky Mountain Harley Dealership owned by Scott Maddux. This was the Sheds 15th year and it went out with a Big Bang! Bringing in Thousands for The Big Gun Show!
Big Gun has been the Sheds Season Opener and Closer now for several years as they are Very popular and Everyone loves Them!
Big Gun has toured all over the country and played with several other artists . Recently Vince Neil (of Motley Crue fame). Big Gun has also Played to packed crowds at the famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
Big Gun The Band, Lead by founding member and lead singer Andy Bowman . Andy , who has been singing AC/DC songs for years in local clubs before starting Big Gun Has The Voice and has been called Phenomenal . I would totally agree with that statement. A True professional, Great Stage Presence to get the crowd going. He can Sing and sound like Bon Scott and Brian Johnson.! Fantastic Front man!
Mark Kennedy on Bass /Vocals Brings energy slinging his hair and throwing up the Rocker hand gesture to the cheering crowd.
Guitarist Scott Abney is the MOST energetic “ Angus Young” Ive ever seen! That fellow runs around like a wild man and Jumps HIGH in the air to the cheering crowd while still playing!
Dean Johnson sounded wonderful on Rhythm Guitar /vocals.
Rounding out Big Gun is Shannon Uden on Drums who brought the Rockin Beat. Twirling his drum sticks and whaling on those drums!
Now to review the show!
Big Gun Packed The Shed again with thousands of fans coming from all over! Fans came from Kentucky, Florida a little bit of everywhere to see Big Gun! Arriving early and standing in 95+ degree heat to see and rock out with their favorite band! The Band Did not disappoint them either! Bringing their High Energy Show with lots of lights, smoke, The Canons on each side of the stage, The Big AC/DC Bell, Their shows – especially at the Shed are a MUST SEE! Always a fun Time! They Always add a little something different and this time they had two men from the Nashville Fire Department dressed in kilts playing bag pipes come out on stage and Rock out with them on the popular song” Its a Long Way To The Top” Great Job to Jason Tant and Tim Mathes! Also They had a few special guests join them on stage Guitarist Patrick Wild and Guest Singer Adam T . Young. Who Played and sung on the song ” Have a Drink on Me” Both did an Awesome Job! Opening the show was Nashville Based Singer/Songwriter Clayton Mann . Who did an Excellent Job kicking off the night. (more on him in another article. ) I Would Highly recommend seeing Big Gun if you get a chance. They will be headlining a benefit show on November 16th 2019 called East Tennessee Heart Fest for Project Heart. It will be the Biggest Heart Fest yet. It will be at the Historic Grove Theater In Oak Ridge Tennessee. Project heart raises funds for Congenital Heart Disease.
