With his shredding guitar solos and rock-n-roll inspired sound, Frankie Ballard and his Wild Cat band held the crowd at the Brandin’ Iron in the palm of his hand Friday night (November 10th).
His set included the Bob-Seger influenced “El Camino,” the sexy “Cigarette,” the funky “Little Bit of Both,” but perhaps the most poignant moment of the night came when Frankie played hit massive hit, “Helluva Life.”
“Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,” Frankie said, thinking back on the events of the Route 91 Harvest Festival. “And yesterday is in the rear view. I did some things in Los Angeles last night I wish I could take back,” he continued, joking. “But I can’t.
“So all that leaves us with this: right here, right now, this moment, and the people standing next to you.”
Even though it was a brand new song, Frankie had the crowd singing along with “Try Try Try,” and made one 75-year-old woman’s night by handing her a guitar pick. Little did he know, it was her very first concert EVER, leaving the next artist to perform for her with some big shoes to fill.
