The Cadillac Three brought their “No Sleep Till London” tour to Philly for some much needed Country Rock. TC3 includes singer-guitarist Jaren Johnston, lap-steel player Kelby Ray and drummer Neil Mason. Opening to a cut of The Beastie Boys, “No Sleep Till Brooklyn”, Singer Jaren Johnston walked on the stage with his signature look of Ray-Ban sunglasses and Redman Chew trucker hat with Red Solo cup in hand. This band is LOUD, for just three players they cover a lot of territory. Behind Jaren, Kelby can make his lap steel sound like just about any instrument, and Neil destroys his drum kit when not grinning from ear to ear. A true front man, Jaren has the voice, the guitar skills and swagger to own the stage. TC3 has always had a loyal following in Philly, and you could tell the crowd was in the mood for some Southern Rock. This band really connects with the fans, at one-point Jaren went into the crowd and decided to play while mugging for selfies with the fans. This is my kind of country.HERE.
