    Joey Green Band -  8PM

    "Nashville is famous for its curious indifference toward new touring bands. Expectations are generally low. But on Saturday night a seasoned quartet from Ft. Worth, TX challenged the status quo...Each song in their set was dynamic, with nuances in all the right spots...Green’s voice is filled with a raw emotional quiver that gives him a unique tonality. The listener is drawn in both sonically and by the visual portrait he so eloquently delivers...This group has a universally soulful sound that can also cross genres and demographics. Mastering that timeless sound and appealing to a wide audience may prove to be the right formula for success.                         Shawn Carnes - High Octane
