The Shed at the Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson in Maryville Tennessee was Rockin Memorial Weekend. Kicking off their Memorial Mayhem weekend with Rocker Gals Cheri Loope and THE Jasmine Cain! Both brought the Rock! This was Jasmine Cain debut at the Shed and no doubt she Will be Back! There was lots of Rocking and hair flying and head banging by both bands.
Kicking off the Night was The Cheri Loope Band featuring Cheri Loope. Cheri and the guys got the crowd warmed up doing some Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin and Autograph among others. Cheri was all over the stage and also brought out her Keytar. One point during the show she also grabbed a drum stick and was drumming along with her drummer. Cheri is also working on a solo album of original tunes. Cheri is always fun to see play live go see her if she plays near you.
Then it came time for THE Jasmine Cain! I had heard alot about the South Dakota native but this was my first time seeing her live. She did NOT disappoint! The Petite Powerhouse Rocker Hit The Stage and Didn’t stop Rocking! doing a combination of covers songs like “Live Wire”/ “Kick Start My Heart”( Motley Crue), “Monkey Business”( Skid Row), “Barracuda”(Heart), “Heart Breaker”( Pat Benatar), “Holy Diver” ( Dio) and several other metal songs and doing some off of her Current Album called Seven. Jasmine can do it all play bass , sing, write , she wrote and co-wrote the songs for “Seven” which is a KILLER Album by the way and a Must Have! I couldn’t pick a favorite off the album as they are all Fantastic! Shes a Multi Award winning artist who does everything from Classic to Modern Rock to Metal. Seven is her well you guessed it her seventh album! She has won over thirty awards for her original music. Winning The 2020 Josie Awards vocalist and album of the year for her album Seven.
Jasmine’s Stage shows are stadium quality and Very high energy. She has a very strong and powerful voice. She is a self taught bass player. she now resides in Nashville Tennessee but tours all over the country. Her shows are like an in your face no holds barred Rock and Roll freight train. They are an incredible three piece band and THEY ROCK! Everyone was saying how BadAss they were. I’ll have to agree. She is working on another Album and She Just announced she will be BACK at The Shed September 30th! So BE THERE! you DONT wanna miss This one! go to http://www.jasminecain.com for all the latest.
