Rock-n-Roll, Alive and Thriving
There is no denying it. Rock n Roll is alive and thriving, just ask last night’s sold out crowd at the Fox Theater in Oakland. Rockers Greta Van Fleet kicked off night 1 of 3 Bay Area shows that we have dubbed, “Rock n Roll Bay Area Takeover”. The young fast rising Michigan band has caught the attention of rock n roll fans of all ages, as the crowd was diverse and included a range of young fans on up to seasoned rockers. The band features, brothers Josh Kiszka, guitarist Jake Kiszka, bassist Sam Kiszka, and long time family friend Danny Wagner on drums. Their music is a resurrection of the classic 70’s riff-heavy rock dipped in soulful blues.
The venue was packed solid as Greta Van Fleet took the stage. Within seconds of their start, the crowd erupted in cheers and the rock n roll flowed nonstop. It was unbelievable to watch the crowd react and sing along to the songs. It was as if they knew they were witnessing one of the early shows of what would become a legendary rock band. The band delivered a highly praised set filled with fan favorites as well as a couple new songs. Strong highlights for us was their extended kick ass riff-tacular version of Edge of Darkness and When the Curtain Falls. The fans went wild from start to finish. The night capped off with a drumtastic encore of Safari Song. What a night!

The opener included a powerful set by one of our favorites, Dorothy. They captured the crowds attention and one of our highlights was their performance of their track, Freedom off their latest album, 28 Days In the Valley.
