July 3, 2012 with Zach Shipps and White Violet

July 3rd, also known as Independence Eve, was an epic party for America. Zach Shipps, local producer and member of Electric Six, brought some meat and potatoes rock’n’roll and I kept All American tunes cooking on my side of the grill all night. Plus Brad Elliott was in town from Georgia with his band White Violet who played a live set. The set was only recorded on cassette tape, which is now traveling around in the White Violet tour van. But you can read the setlist of our American tunes and see more pictures below!
