  • Blackberry Smoke – State Theatre, March 26th, 2015 
    Blackberry Smoke released Holding All the Roses, their latest collection of sweet and heavy Southern rock and roll, in February, and it was the talk of the crowd at Thursday’s show.  All were in agreement – this music is fresh and new and still all Smoke.  The album has moved the band in a slightly...
