Went to see Highway Down at Ireland’s 32 on Wednesday to see how consistent this band can be, after all seeing is believing. Highway Down packs a solid punch of southern tones which feature Country Music faves such as Travis Tritt , Lady Antebellum and rock’s Tom Petty as well as their newly crafted tunes for their EP on iTunes. Highway Down threw in “Drive South” by John Hiatt which sounded eerily like Bob Dylan. When the tune was over it was presented as such and made NFTF feel pretty good about becoming familiar with Highway Down’s genre. On Myspace the next day Linkin Park friended us…OMEN? Highway Down is a tight band with good solid licks and an interesting drum back beat. Gotta say friends that up until NFTF saw this band tune up for the show, we had no idea that air conditioning could mess with tuning a guitar. Thank you Marty for the mention in RE to our comment regarding “Sweet Home Alabama” and looking for the nearest exit…LOL ! Catch this band while you can friends cause they’ll be hittin’ the road in a few months to promote their EP and hopefully land in Nashville, Tenn. with a huge buzz.
