"John Fogerty kicks off opening night of his Las Vegas residency with phenomenal timeless performance"

John Fogerty hits it out of the ballpark with his phenomenal performance on his opening night of the Fortunate Son In Concert, Las Vegas Residency. The impressive Venetian Theater was packed, as generations of fans came to celebrate Credence Clearwater Revival and John Fogerty’s solo hits. The night kicked off with quite a patriotic and entertaining set by the Six-String Soldiers, featuring active duty military men who charmed the crowd with covers as well as their originals. The crowd showed their support as they gave them several standing ovations, thanking them for their service to our country. - Music Junkie Press

"Six String Soldiers surprise with sweet 'I've Been There'"

"I've Been There," the recent album from the Six String Soldiers — which is performing at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Worcester Hibernian Cultural Centre — is something of a surprise. A sweet, simple blast of Americana, the album represents a solid performance by the band, which is part of the United States Army Field Band. Comprising Master Sgt. John Lamirande on mandolin; Sgt. 1st Class Thomas Lindsey on banjo; Staff Sgt. John Brandon Boron on guitar; and Spencer native Sgt. 1st Class Glenn Robertson on bass, Six String Soldiers turns out music that's warm, engaging and down-to-earth.

The album is largely made up of cover songs, most notably the Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun," Glen Campbell's "Gentle On My Mind" and Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home," but there is some original material, most notably "My Old Town," which is a sweet-spirited little piece of nostalgia. Indeed, nostalgia is one of the album's predominant themes, a sort of wistfulness for the often romanticized small-town life of the past. It's a forgivable indulgence, especially on the charming "Postman Jerry." These are pleasant confections, and perfectly enjoyable.

But where this album is strongest is when it overtly touches on aspects of military life. "Bennie 38," for instances, is a moving series of letters from a soldier to his mother, one that catches the entwined feelings of fear and bravery a soldier encounters during combat. In the same vein, "My Father," deals with a man reminiscing about his father, who died in combat, and it's extremely compelling — catching a sort of optimistic patriotism, certainly, but also a profound sense of loss, and the near impossibility of holding one's self to the standard of a ghost. Six String Soldiers is solid throughout the album, but when they're delving into this emotional space, they resound with honesty. -


Still working on that hot first release.
