Fans of real-deal rock ’n’ roll have a solid (and free!) option next week at McMenamins Old St. Francis School.
That’s where local band Voodoo Highway will fill Father Luke’s room with its crunchy, bluesy swagger on Wednesday night.
The quartet features some familiar faces on the local scene. Stacie Lynn Johnson (also of Broken Down Guitars) and David Miller (Kleverkill, ex-Bad Influence) front the band, while Sean Leary and Patrick Smith make up a thunderous rhythm section.
Together, the group mines classic, heavily blues-influenced rock sounds, not unlike Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top and Kings of Leon. A pretty good crew to be “not unlike," don’t you think?
