Jacksonville, Florida is chock full of talented musicians and this past Thursday at 1904 Music Hall showcased a handful of them. Blackwater Grease opened the night with their consistent high energy chock full of guitar solos and southern rock jams. Somatic followed with West Brook exhibiting his talents on multiple slide (and regular) guitars, alongside masters of the rhythm section, Shane Platten on bass, and Shaun Taunton holding down the drum kit.
The much awaited hometown debut of Melody Trucks band was high energy and a total dance party. Tributes to Melody’s late father, Butch Trucks, and appreciation for the music scene we all love incited an emotional experience. The band was made up of a slew of impressive musicians; Melody on conga percussion and lead vocals, West Brook on slide guitar, Shane Platten on bass, Shaun Taunton on the drum kit, and guitarists Willis Gore and Brady Clampit. The Melody Trucks Band is a cohesive piece of expert musicians that represent live jam music in its purest form. They will be performing at Hometeam New Years Rally at Maddox Ranch.
