Rock, Roots, & Blues - Live


ZZ Top

September 13, 2016 - Pier Six Pavillion - Baltimore, MD

Killer double bills seemed to be the theme this summer, and September 13, 2016 was no excepetion. On this night - Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore welcomed Gov't Mule opening for that venerable lil' old band from Texas - ZZ Top! Warren Haynes is easily the busiest musician in the business right now, and he and his band Gov't Mule rocked a varied opening set. Always a treat to see Warren play with any incarnation of a band - especially his long standing rock and roll group, The Mule! And as always - he didn't disappoint. The headliners took the stage with their well honed bravado - sporting matching outfits of black leather and sporting gold guitars. Billy Gibbons was playing, what looked like, a one-of-a-king gold Gibson SG. A beautiful instrument. The trio - longest touring, all original member rock band in history, played all the hits, and in fine form. Billy Gibbons' voice, while a little rough around the edges, still sounds great, and Dusty Hill kept the beat for the funk that is ZZ Top. Let's not forget the drummer, Mr. Frank Beard, who drives the train behind this classic power trio. In top form that night, ZZ Top gave the crowd everything they were hoping for - and more! A true one-of-a-kind iconic rock band. ​​
