Unfairly, the band has been assigned the burdening task of “carrying the torch” for rock music (even overhearing a few in the crowd making the vaunted decision for them). Fortunately, GVF has carried themselves with focus, grace, and wit.
Opening with radio hit “Highway Tune” to a +3,000 crowd of cross-generational fans on a hot Sunday night in a less-than-stellar venue more suited for techno dancing then rock music. GVF quickly put the pedal-to-the-metal to the eager audience.
Strong material and crowd attentiveness from GVFs two EP releases, Black Smoke Rising and From the Fires was a strong indicator that the boys from Detroit may have just captured lightning in the bottle.
