Turn 5 Concert Series: Blackberry Smoke, the Worx and more!
Come celebrate a rocking weekend of racing at the Turn 5 Concerts near Martinsville Speedway on Oct. 25-26, 2013, while helping raise money for some worthy charities! Blackberry Smoke will headline the two-night event with a concert on Saturday, Oct. 26th, along with Old Southern Moonshine Revival and Tenured Soul. Regional rock favorites The Worx will highlight Friday's slate of music on Oct. 25th, along with Madrone and E.T.A.
The members of Southern Rock quintet Blackberry Smoke are no strangers to hard work. Playing up to 250 dates each year, the guys are on the road more often than not, and they've seen tangible results of their labor. The band has toured with and befriended idols such as The Marshall Tucker Band, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd and George Jones. The band was even asked to play for Jones on his 80th birthday, not long after the country legend turned in a guest appearance on the band's sophomore album. They've toured Europe thrice over, and had their songs featured in video games (EA Sports' NASCAR 08) and films (Swing Vote), as well.
Mixing elements of gospel, bluegrass, arena rock, soul and more than a touch of outlaw country, Blackberry Smoke has earned a passionate fanbase that continues to grow as the band itself evolves. The band is as blue collar as the bandanas its members wear.
Although most bands are typecast into narrow classifications, the Worx stand apart in a class of their own. Each member brings their own musical experiences, preferences and tastes to the table, creating an experience guaranteed to satisfy any audience. They were recently named one of the best bands in Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine, and have also been named the best local band in Roanoke, Harrisonburg and Lynchburg.
