SHOOTER JENNINGS & WAYMORE’S OUTLAWS
Saturday, June 4, 2016 / 7:30 p.m. / Anthem
The only son of country legends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, Shooter Jennings literally spent his childhood on a tour bus. Born Waylon Albright Jennings, Shooter was playing drums by the time he was five years old and had already begun taking piano lessons, only to break them off and follow his own path to an understanding of the instrument. He discovered guitar at 14 and rock & roll (particularly Southern rock and the loose-limbed hard rock of Guns N’ Roses) at 16. He moved from Nashville to L.A., where he assembled a rock band called Stargunn. Stargunn earned a strong local reputation for its live shows, and enjoyed a six- or seven-year run on the L.A. circuit before Jennings rediscovered his outlaw country roots and dissolved the band. Following in his father’s footsteps, but with his own feisty, scrappy sense of country, Jennings placed himself in a fine position to both explore that legacy and carve out his own.
In early 2014, Shooter teamed up with Waymore’s Outlaws, Waylon Jenning’s original recording and touring band, and began touring all over the country together. Performing country classics, Waylon hits, and Shooter’s own material, the tour became an instant success and even landed a headlining spot at the 2014 CMA Fest. Shooter continues to tour with his father’s band while also producing material through his own record label, Black Country Rock.

If you want to be sent back to the 80s, the only band to do it with is the Spazmatics. The band lends its geeky charm to the tune of theme songs and hits that shaped the decade of decadence. Their spastic show, complete with the style and dance moves of the 80s, allows you to bring your guard down. They add a unique dimension to their performance, demonstrating the common ties between 80s New Wave and today’s popular music.
