Lee Fields & The Expressions to headline Truck Stop Concert Series #3 on August 12th
Legendary soul singer to headline last show of the year at Red Truck Beer
Now in its third year, the Truck Stop Concert Series has become a highlight of Vancouver’s summer, and with a full sellout so far this year, it’s clear that Vancouverites love the combination of great live music and delicious craft beer at the Red Truck Brewing Truck Stop.
After June’s indie dance show and July’s country lineup, August’s event will be one for the soul, blues, and rock fans. The August 12th show will be headlined by the legendary Lee Fields & The Expressions, one of the last original soul men still standing. He’ll be supported by great list of acts including Juno Blues nominee, Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer, The Jay Vons, Vince Vaccaro, Real Ponchos, and Year of the Wolf, who won their way onto the bill through the Red Truck Artist Submissions program.
Lee Fields is nearly 50 years into a career which has seen him tour the world spreading a brand of deep soul that’s earned him the nickname “Little James Brown.” Backed by the Expressions he’s won legions of fans with music that brings the great era of Southern soul back to life.
With 2014’s Juno-nominated “A Real Fine Mess,” Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer established themselves as a musical force with a blend of greasy blues and psychedelic jams which they’ve taken to new level on their recently-released “Apocalipstick.” Famous for their “high-energy, sweaty, dance-floor-boogying performances,” they’re perfect for a hot summer evening at Red Truck.
Hailing from Brooklyn, The Jay Vons have a sound that takes the best of vintage pop, garage rock, and soul and gives it a contemporary sheen. They’re known for rocking worlds and filling dancefloors and are sure to make many new fans on their visit to Vancouver. The show lineup also includes Vince Vaccaro, Real Ponchos, and Year of the Wolf, who will have the chance to impress 1200 music fans.
