Sat., June 08, Rachel Steele & Road 88
Bogle Vineyards, 6 p.m., $40-$50
Five years ago, Rachel Steele & Road 88's first album No Speed Bumps got its name because, according to guitarist and vocalist Scott Prentice, “having a band means you are going to encounter lots of speed bumps.” In spite of any bumps, Rachel Steele & Road 88 opened for Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson and the Marshall Tucker Band. Steele's voice is just the right amount of sultry on “Tractor Ride (The Cougar Song).” The group's new EP is appropriately titled Rachel Steele & Road 88 Live. But no recording can ever match the energy that this band offers in a live performance. 37783 County Road 144 in Clarksburg, www.road88music.com.
