Worth the Wait

It is difficult to believe it has been more than a year since BDS has been in Atlanta, but it a very welcome return indeed! New faces in the band. New album. New covers added to the set list. But the end result? Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam still rock! The band appeared on stage at the Virginia Highland Summerfest (sponsored by 92.9 Dave FM) and I poorly misjudged how long it would take to get to the venue, so we were a little late to the show. We did see about an hour of rock and blues goodness well worth any hassle we had getting there.

The band played some tracks off the new album, Coming Up for Air and added a few covers to the set list (by CCR and Rory Gallagher). The new songs rock and the "oldies" sound fresh. Wish I could make it to Chattanooga tomorrow. As I mentioned to Davy after the show, I hope we don't have to wait another year for next BDS Hotlanta gig!

I've said it a million times and I'll say it again, check out the schedule and don't miss this band if they are appearing anywhere near you!
