.38 Special

August 23 2014 @ 8:00 pm

Jacksonville-based rockers .38 Special bring their powerhouse rock ‘n’ roll to Washington’s Meadows Racetrack and Casino. The band was formed in the mid-‘70s by friends Don Barnes and Donnie Van Zant (brother of the late Lynyrd Skynryd lead singer Ronnie Van Zant and Johnnie Van Zant, current lead singer of Skynyrd) and hasn’t eased off the gas since. .38 Special’s genre at its inception was something that wouldn’t sound out of place on Dazed and Confused’s soundtrack—kind of a southern-style rock ‘n’ roll. However, their sound has shifted and evolved considerably since. For example, compare 1978’s “I’m A Fool For You” with their breakout hit “Hold On Loosely,” only three years later (which was their first major hit and remains their biggest hit to this day). The difference is notable—what each entry in .38 Special’s library has in common, however, is that every song showcases their outstanding ability to rock out. 8 p.m. 210 Racetrack Rd., Washington.
