The Rock Band franchise is back in action with a new concert series that will feature music from some of the band’s most popular and beloved bands.
Gaither singer-bassist and bassist Matt Gaither will headline the new Rock Band Concert Series at London Brixton’s Brixtone Academy, which was opened by the band in 2015 and features a range of styles from country to funk.
“We’ve had a really good time over the years at Brixtones Academy, and we’ve played a ton of bands over the past couple of years, so we know what it takes to be one of the top bands in the world,” said Gaither, who will join bassist Scott Stansfield, guitarist Matt Deane, drummer Justin Fenton, guitarist Mark Lohr and guitarist Jason Dufour.
“The idea for Rock Band Live was to really give the fans what they want,” said Stanswell, who also acts as a co-host on the Rock Band Podcast.
“You know what you can do to have fun and have fun, and to bring out the best of the world, and that’s what we’ve done.”
“The Rock Band Experience will be like no other,” said Lohrh, who is also a co, and has worked closely with the band since the band first hit the stage in 2007.
“You’ll be able to play, dance and sing with the best bands in world, so you can enjoy it, just as much as you did the first time.”
I hope we can all get a little bit out of the house and have a blast.””
