Various venues, Tennessee, Thu 10–Sun 13 Apr
Friday night’s shenanigans began with dinner at BB King’s before moving onto the Mercy Lounge for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. It was an amazing set in an intimate venue.
On Saturday, we went to Lynchburg where every drop of Jack Daniel’s is made and toured the distillery to see how the whisky is made and even got to do a wee tasting. There were plenty of bands from all over the world and games laid on before we were driven to a huge wooden shack on top of BBQ Hill for the JD Set Legendary Mash. The first band was Carbon/Silicon were really melodic but punky. Hard-Fi who were up next got the crowd jumping with an upbeat set especially during ‘Living for the Weekend’ which perfectly captured the mood of the whole event.
Later, Carbon/Silicon collaborated with Hard-Fi for the encore with a track from each band, ending the night on a high with a brilliant rendition of ‘Should I Stay of Should I Go’. Even though it was long journey, it was a trip of a lifetime and I’d do it all again in a heartbeat!
