Within the last decade, we have seen many bands deliver some good blips on the heartline of the rock and roll, but none as huge as the spike that Greta Van Fleet is making. They are bringing a full on resuscitation to ROCK ‘N ROLL so get ready, hang on and enjoy the ride.
We recently caught Greta Van Fleet perform at the beautiful intimate outdoor venue of John Anson Ford Amphitheater in Hollywood. The venue is situated in the rugged beauty of an LA County regional park. The setting was superb and as the bands took the stage, the sound was spot on.
The crowd was greeted with a high energy gritty alt-rock set from SlothRust, LA/Brooklyn based three piece band. Their music is a great blend of 90’s grunge, garage punk, and alternative rock.
The crowd grew to capacity as Greta Van Fleet were to take the stage. The excitement raced through the crowd as the lights dimmed and the band entered. From the first note to the last, the energy was off the charts. The band kicked off their set with the fan favorite, Highway Tune. The crowd went wild and were singing along instantly.
You couldn’t help but feel like you were witnessing one of the early shows of what would become a legendary rock band. They were so good, they gave me goosebumps as I watched the sheer power of their performance. The crowd was diverse and included a range of young fans on up to seasoned rockers. They were all in agreement, cheering on the kick ass rock n roll band, Greta Van Fleet. Check out photos of their set by our Rockin Ryan:
