+ special guest Otis Gibbs
Entry Requirements: Under 18's must be accompanied
Homemade Sin return to Bush Hall for the fourth consecutive year, having sold out the three previous shows. This year, bringing with them Americana hero Otis Gibbs as special guest www.otisgibbs.com
Expect to hear tracks from the forthcoming new Homemade Sin studio album, plus Georgia Satellites classics, such as “Keep Your Hands To Yourself” alongside solo Dan Baird hits “I Love You Period”.
Rolling Stone magazine recently described Homemade Sin as one of the most ferocious live bands around.
Dan himself will be absent while recovering from his illness (see his message below), but Warner and Mauro will make sure the Homemade Sin train rolls on and Dan has a band to return to. Joe Blanton (The Bluefields, Royal Court of China) will be filling in for Dan and Sean Savacool filling in for Micke Björk.
The basis of the show will be Home Made Sin , but with a broader scope, some Scorchers, some covers, but still a whole wallop of Home Made Sin and Satellites and whatever it ends up being, it'll be a kick ass rock n roll show.
A FEW WORDS FROM DAN: Gang, DB has to take the rest of the year off to remove his blood cancer (CLL). Treatment and recovery will hopefully be concluded by the new year. Can't say for certain exactly when, but that's the first extra broad stroke diagnosis. I want this crap gone ASAP. Very doable, but I have to commit the time to do the treatment. Promise to let y'all know when it's done. That brings us to Homemade Sin and at least the rest of this year's shows. I've stated before that HMS is a working band, and we have work this fall, although I can't be there. Warner and Mauro will be, as well as Sean Savacool on bass while Micke navigates his own family/ personal waters. I've asked Joe Blanton my good friend, songwriting partner, fellow bandmate (the Bluefields), Homemade Sin's engineer and producer to step in and give a hand in helping the band fulfill the dates we have on the books. I'll ask 2 favors of those wondering if this will work. 1 - Give Joe a shot at being himself while doing the shit I usually do on the stage. He's his own man, but has a more than healthy respect for our/my catalogue past and present. 2 - Please don't expect me to sing as on pitch as he does when I do come back. Ain't gonna happen. SUPPORT A WORKING BAND SO I HAVE ONE TO COME BACK TO WHEN I AM ALL RIGHT AGAIN.
