Here’s a couple of more great tunes for you! If you want to catch a fantastic up-and-coming band, check out the Dead 27s (named for all of the famous musicians who died at age 27, including Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin, among others). They are based out of Charleston, SC, where they recently won Rock Band of the Year and Best Rock Song for the area. Their sound is a mix of rock, funk and soul. They’ve put out a couple of albums, the most recent being Ghosts Are Calling, which represents their first major record deal. They’ll be touring to support the album this year.
Will Evans, their lead guitarist, keyboardist and harmony vocalist is a great guy who is marrying my wife’s cousin, Amanda. We get to see both of them each year up on the farm in Hartsville, SC, which I’ve written about before. I’m excited for both of them. I’m sure 2017 is going to be an epic year for them both, in many ways!
Anyway, the Dead 27s have an active Facebook page and they regularly post “unplugged” acoustic videos. I’m going to post a couple of fantastic covers they did. This one is of Prince’s “Little Red Corvette”, in tribute, shortly after his passing. This is Will and lead singer, Trey Francis. I don’t too many people who could pull this song off… You’ve just got to have a lot of soul to do it. These guys have got it. I’ll post one more after this showing the whole band tackling Stevie Wonder. It’s pretty amamzing! Enjoy, and make sure to check ’em out!
