The Jefferson City, Missouri based hard rock outfit hit Detroit this weekend, bringing hard rock to The Shelter along with OTHERWISE and Everlit.

Everlit (not pictured) opened the night. This five-piece hard rock band from Philadelphia consists of Ryan Panfil (vocals), Jordan Panfil (guitar), Jacob Castro (drums), Anthony Michael (guitar), and Kyle Wegman (bass). The band is off to a great start, with their first single “Break Away” being the most added song on Billboard’s BDs Indicator chart on April 24. The band is known for their heavy riffs, catchy melodies, and anthemic themes, all very evident in some of their bigger songs like “Break Away” and “A Phoenix Will Rise.”

Their first EP, Renovate, is now available online at iTunes and Amazon.

OTHERWISE came out and brought high energy through their entire set. The Las Vegas hard alternative rock band consists of Adrian Patrick (vocals), Ryan Patrick (guitar/vocals), Corky Gainsford (drums/vocals), Andrew Pugh (guitar/vocals), and Tony “The Beast” Carboney (bass/vocals). Throughout the show, Adrian would point out individual fans that certain songs are related to, a unique action that made the show very personal. Near the end of their set, during their hit “Soldiers,” the members of Shaman’s Harvest came onstage with the band for a toast. The feeling of comradery between the bands emanated into the crowd.

Their latest album, Peace At All Costs, is available now on iTunes.

With the crowd packed in tight, Shaman’s Harvest hit the stage. This rock band from Jefferson City, Missouri has formulated their own unique mix of modern and classic rock with a southern twist that has energized fans across the nation. The kicked off their set with a bang, opening with “Blood In The Water” and “Here It Comes.” 

For those of you who do not know, Shaman’s Harvest’s vocalist, Nathan Hunt, was diagnosed with a rare form of throat cancer during the production of Smokin’ Hearts & Broken Guns, putting both his career and life in jeopardy. Hunt was a trooper and was present and active for every session he could attend, just so the release of the record was not delayed. This new album is not only a testimony to how much talent this band has, but to Hunt’s determination and strength.

The entire band put on a fantastic show, belting out songs like “Dangerous,” “Dirty Diana,” “Hero,” and of course, closing with their hit “Dragonfly.” With soaring guitar riffs and in-your-face drums, all tied together with emotional and powerful vocals, this band’s intensity is undeniable.

Their latest album, Smokin’ Hearts & Broken Guns, is out now and available on their website.
