Thanks to Stephen and the great people at Venture Richmond, I was able to cover one of the most anticipated Friday Cheers of the year. The Alabama Shakes battled the elements last night and rocked Brown’s Island.

I had never seen them play live before but I was hearing the hype for weeks. Well, the hype is real! They were amazing! Lead singer Brittany Howard is the real deal.

She carried the night with her powerful southern rock voice and surprisingly strong guitar playing. Most of the audience on Brown’s Island knew every song and sung along.

The few that didn’t became instant fans. I found myself dancing to every song and really captivated by their sound. It was a great show. I am now a new loyal fan. Check out the Alabama Shakes Facebook page here. And Check out the Friday Cheers Facebook page here….like them both!
