Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry says All Music.com employ a fiery yet rootsy mix of hard rock and post-grunge/heavy metal that invokes names like Stone Sour, Theory of a Deadman, Buckcherry, and Shinedown. This weekend the group will be performing at Scout Bar.
According to the band members, none of whom were born before 1983, the lack of anything to do in their hometown, coupled with a rich musical background in their community and families, led them to start playing music. Lead vocalist and guitarist Chris Robertson met drummer John Fred Young (the son of Kentucky Headhunters' Richard Young) in school, and the two played music together throughout high school. In June of 2001, Black Stone Cherry officially formed with guitarist Ben Wells and bassist Jon Lawhon. They began holding shows at clubs in the area, and after a short while they gained a large all-ages following.

Don't miss a night out in Downtown Houston this Saturday on October 16, 2021 It's a great chance to explore the neighborhood’s eclectic parks, bars, and restaurants. From family-friendly ghost tours to free pontoon boat rides on Buffalo Bayou, A Night At Market Square is full of activities for all ages.
Kicking off this Tex-Orleans block party is Houston's premiere funk band, Bayou City Funk. Quaker City Night Hawks will headline the event with their foot-stomping sounds.
Of course, it wouldn't be a Tex-Orleans party without some NOLA-esque bites and booze. Feast on beignets at a pop-up cafe and night market (featuring State Line Designs and friends), then grab your krewe and head to The Big Easy block party on Franklin for hurricanes. Laissez les bons temps rouler.
