Mark Robinson "Gone South" Singles Release Show

at The 5 Spot, Nashville TN

Sep 17 2015
Mark Robinson

The Mark Robinson Band celebrates the release of Mark’s new single GONE SOUTH (A Single with 2 Sides) in a special early show opening for the great David Olney. Robinson recorded two version of the new single: Acoustic Roots and Electric Rock, which serve as two “sides” of the single, like a classic vinyl 45. His go-to rhythm section of Daniel Seymour on bass and Justin Amaral on drums had no problem digging in to both arrangements, since they themselves play with a wide range of Nashville cats, from Americana heavyweights Tommy Womack and David Olney to alt-country’s Chuck Mead and roots rocker Paul Burch. Then Robinson called upon the considerable talents of Michael Webb (Poco, John Fogarty) on B-3 and Rick Schell (PinMonkey, Pure Prairie League) on backing vocals for the electric rock side. For the acoustic roots side, he brought in rising country singer Luke Amelang on backup vocals and The SteelDrivers’ Richard Bailey on banjo. Though best known in recent years for his blues-rock albums, Robinson is no stranger to Americana and roots.  He has played with stalwarts of the rock-roots scene such as Tommy Womack and has produced albums for Americana/alt-country standouts David Olney, Mark Huff, Ray Cashman, Davis Raines, and Tiffany Huggins Grant. In 2013, Robinson was voted “Best Americana/Roots Guitar Player” by the readers of The Alternate Root Magazine. Come help them celebrate this Rock-and-Roots “double header”!
