Black Country Communion LIVE at the Hampton Beach Casino, June 17, 2011
Black Country Communion, "building the foundation of rock!"
Photos and Review by Bluebird.
Glenn Hughes, Joe Bonamassa, Derek Sherinian and Jason Bonham. Elegant and explosive, wild and restrained, professional and engaging, they presented a show to a sold out crowd in New Hampshire on Friday night that exceeded the expectations of some very experienced rock fans of all ages.
They set out to tour the US coast to coast, just days after the release of their second album, BCC 2. Their first album was debuted September, 2010. Each of these musicians with full careers of their own, has pulled together their collective talents and experience to create a new sound that has key elements of classic blues guitar, poignant bass lines, progressive/fusion keyboarding, and legendary drum arrangements. Powerful vocals from Hughes and Bonamassa prevail and are mixed with harmony pieces from the band as well. Experienced listeners can't help but hear the flavors, echos, feel of their favorite bands from which these musicians come, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Trapeze, Dream Theatre, and more, are of influence, yet all the while a modern sound is in your face.
