Athfest 2011: John King and Rachel Farley lead us into Sunday

Sunday, June 26th, 2011
The John King Band & Rachel Farley Band

As I made the long, uphill trek through the heat back downtown that Sunday morning, only the thought of the tunes that awaited me kept me going. Upon entering the festival space, the upbeat country rock sound of The John King Band welcomed me back. The band's great beat, steady through their softer songs as well, drove their tunes as the crowd clapped along. And, once they had finished, there was good news for those who craved more too. They've got a new EP due out in August!

Then it was Rachel Farley's turn to share her powerful, vocal-led southern rock with us. Backed by a full band, she gave us an amazing set of strong, beautiful tunes. The band's show was packed with so much energy that people ventured out into the heat just to watch them play! Rachel responded by declaring her love for all of the fans and rocking even harder just for them. Now that's the best kind of connection there is!
