The Zac Brown Band returns to Austin!

The Three-time GRAMMY-winning multiplatinum artists  Zac Brown Band returns to Austin at the Austin360 Amphitheater on the “Welcome Home” 2017 Tour, with special guest “Darrell Scott”.

The evening started with the very talented “Caroline Jones” on stage with a beautiful Texas sunset in her eyes as she played tune from her new album “Bare feet”. I watched many people in the crowd singing along with every lyric she sang.

“Darrell Scott”  followed, after Caroline had played her heart out to the fans. He started out alone with a “Collings” electric guitar.  Four songs into his short set, members of the Zac Brown Band started trickling onstage to join Scott as they sat around the stage and finally Brown himself became part of Scott’s backing band. Eventually, Scott gave way to the Zac Brown Band .

The Zac Brown Band opened with “Homegrown” and the crowd was on their feet for most of the night. The band has great versatility, playing songs from the new album, previous albums, along with several covers that were just amazing to hear from these well accomplished musicians, such as,  Use Somebody “Kings of Leon”,  Whipping Post “The Allman Brothers Band”,  Enter Sandman “Metallica”, and finished the encore with Paradise City “ Guns and Roses”. What an amazing concert!! Great night of Live Music!!

About The Author

Stan Martin

I have always loved photography. As a kid, I always had some type of cheap film camera. When I graduated High School, my dad gave me my first professional 35mm camera with a couple of lenses, an auto winder, and a flash. I was drawn to landscapes and colorful cloud formations at first, but, Years later, I was introduced to Drag Racing, Cars, Boats, and Harleys and still cant get enough of being just feet away from these monsters of speed and trying capture a jaw dropping photo at over 300MPH! After moving Austin, the “Live Music Capital of the World” my attention turned to live music. I am a musician myself and have become great friends with lots of these artists around Austin, I taught myself to photograph bands in several of the local bars with terrible lighting and tiny stages. My frustration at first, inspired me to learn more about the camera, what settings and techniques work and don’t work. I also do Real Estate photography, weddings, events, sports, etc.
