Nick Perri and the Underground Thieves
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NICK PERRI TO OPEN FOUR DRIVE-IN SHOWS
SUPPORTING BLACKBERRY SMOKE
Nick Perri, a Philadelphia-based artist/songwriter/producer announced that he will be direct support for Blackberry Smoke’s four upcoming Drive-In concert events which will take place in the Northeast US this September, 2021.
Nick and his band The Underground Thieves were among the first in the country to successfully play Drive-In rock concerts when they shared the stage with British rock band The Struts this August in Philadelphia and Butler, PA.
“I’m thrilled to be headed back on the road, to continue sharing the experience of live music, and most of all excited to be doing it with my dear friends in Blackberry Smoke- who I love and admire so much”, said Perri. “Especially in a time like this, I think live music plays an important role in uniting and up-lifting.”
The shows will take place in Yarmouth, MA, Scranton PA, Butler, PA, and Roanoke, VA. Perri will be hitting the road to support Blackberry Smoke in a new ‘Trio’ format.
“For a variety of reasons, the Trio version of this band makes the most sense on this run. I’m really excited to strip things back and offer an alternative experience to what we do with the full six-piece band.” The Nick Perri Trio will consist of Perri on lead vocals and guitar, Brian Weaver on bass, and Zil Fessler on drums- all of whom originate from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The group released their debut album SUN VIA to critical and commercial acclaim on Aug 14th, with the album debuting at #6 on the Top 10 US rock albums iTunes charts. Recorded and produced by Perri, SUN VIA is comprised of 10 original songs—a cohesive mix of rock-, alternative-, Americana-, and psychedelia-infused tracks. The album is available now on Vinyl, CD, and digital here: https://linktr.ee/nickperri
The album’s opening track and first single, “Feeling Good,” which is currently rising up rock radio charts, has already begun earning praise from the band’s music industry contemporaries, including Greta Van Fleet’s Danny Wagner, Blackberry Smoke’s Charlie Starr, and Gibson’s Director of Brand Experience, Mark Agnesi.
