I just received this press release courtesy of SHOTGUN REBELLION:
“OK Corral 2013 – the Legend, the Dean, and the Gunslinger”
Every music lover has that one show that they’ll never forget. That one ticket stub that they hold in prized reverence. The show that led to stories they’ll still be telling in the old folks home.
This will be one of those shows…
At the Diamond Ballroom in Oklahoma City on August 25th, three stellar guitarists will be on display; the Gunslinger Rick Davis, the Dean Randy Cooper, and the Legend Ted Nugent.
As the style of southern metal continues to grow, one of the fastest rising and dominant bands to emerge is “Shotgun Rebellion”. Built by the rebel soul of Davis and influential and creative bassist Jon Parr; “SGR” has taken over, driven hard by the power and thundering Johni Walker on drums and leaving audiences amazed.
As “SGR” toured the southern regions, a brotherhood was cemented with current “Emperors & Elephants” and former “Texas Hippie Coalition” guitarist Randy Cooper during the dozens of shows they shared.
With “THC”, Randy helped spread the outlaw metal style across Europe and South America on one of his many custom Dean guitars.
Knowing that playing a show with Nugent was a bucket list item also with Cooper, as soon as DCF Concerts announced that “Shotgun Rebellion” had been selected as the opener, “SGR” reached out to their southern brother for a guest appearance.
As if a night with one of outlaw metal’s top acts featuring two of the genres best guitarists wasn’t enough, the legendary motor city madman Ted Nugent himself takes the stage. Playing a full set showcasing some of rock’s most classic anthems, Nugent defines the image and sets the standard for guns and guitars.
For one night, and one night only, Oklahoma City’s Diamond Ballroom becomes a shrine to the six string. “Shotgun Rebellion” come all blazing with Rick Davis, Jon Parr, and Johni Walker, with special guest appearance from Randy Cooper; supporting a no holds barred headlining performance from Ted Nugent. For one night Rick and Randy team up to become the Arsenal!
..the Legend, the Dean, and the Gunslinger…see it all live !!!
