Middle of Summer heats up with Metal Legend Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society and Pepper Keenan and Corrosion of Conformity joined by Midwestern Duo Telekinetic Yeti
Telekinetic Yeti

Guitarist Alex Baumann and drummer Anthony Dreyer make up this 2 man Stoner Rock band. Out of Iowa these two have been touring since 2017 and their album "Abominable" has been gaining a following with a unique sound with their songs suc as "Stoned and Feathered", "Electronaut", and "Beneath The Black Sun" These two are definitely worth a listen.

Corrosion Of Conformity

A personal favorite of mine. Frontman and guitarist Pepper Keenan, Lead guitarst Woody Weatherman, Bassist Mike Dean and drummer Reed Mullin set the power tone with a sound that began in 1982 and has only gotten better over the last few decades. Songs "Broken Man", "Seven Days", and "Clean My Wounds" boomed in the building revving up and already intense crowd. Starting as a hardcore punk band in the 80's moving on to a Blues themed Metal that hsa spawned 10 albums their latest "No Cross No Crown" is a must get for metal fans.

Black Label Society

What more can be said about Guitarist Zakk Wylde's signature sounds? Combine them with Bassist John DeServio, Drummer Jeff Fabb, and Guitarist Dario Lorina and you have a force to be reckoned with. Songs "Bleed For Me", "Room Of Nightmares" and "Fire It Up" the evening could not be any more fueled. Dressed in a kilt and channeling the Vikings of old, Zakk and Company shook the metal walls of the venue in Peoria, Illinois barely leaving it standing at the end of the night.
