Since emerging from Atlanta in the early 2000s, the quintet has become known for a signature sound indebted to classic rock, blues, country and folk. Hits include “Like An Arrow” and “Holding All The Roses.” The band has earned two Billboard chart-topping Country albums, 2015’s Holding All The Roses and 2016’s Like An Arrow. (For good measure, the latter also topped Billboard’s Americana/Folk album chart.)

Find A Light, Blackberry Smoke’s sixth studio album doubles down on diversity. Songs hew toward easygoing roots-rock (“Run Away From It All”) and Southern rock stomps (“The Crooked Kind”), as well as stripped-down acoustic numbers (“I’ve Got This Song”) and bruising alt-country (“Nobody Gives A Damn”). Rich instrumental flourishes—keening fiddle, solemn organ and bar-band piano boogie—add further depth and resonance.

Kicking off the night is Quaker City Night Hawks’ brand of hard rock n’ roll is bred from Texas boogie, Memphis soul & heavy blues. Their music is southern rock right out of ’75, played with the fervor of a sermon crackling out of the radio in a ’68 Lincoln. They’re the whiskey bottle you finished Saturday night and the prayer you said the next morning. Like a country gunshot on a humid night and your first illicit beer, Quaker City Night Hawks are the spirit of rock n’ roll. Come shake your hips.
