Fans of good ol’ boys’ Southern Rock are going to like The Road Heavy when they open for Jeff Martin at Meaford Hall on July 12th.  To get a sense of the sound imagine a band with vocals shared by Gregg Allman and Allanah Myles for starters.

Pat James and Jules Cardoso add exceptional vocal power to the band.

Those voices belong to Pat James and Jules Cardoso and when they join each other on a song it’s a bonus, like hearing your favourite rock singers in a duet for the first time.  With piercing guitar leads from Ryan Blake, solid bass and drums from Andre DeSilva and Jeff Cox, it’s a sound that’s going to set hearts thumping when it fills the Opera House.  The band is just getting started but they have the sound of road heavy rock warriors that have spent years in the trenches.

A new band with a bright future

This is another one of those chances offered by Meaford Hall to see somebody before they get too big for our little town.

They’ve just released their second single, “Words Don’t Mean A Thing”, along with a video.  You can hear how the power chords and the lyrics are custom made to set off the talent of the two singers.  It’s a strong emotional song that brings back the era of classic rock when music was real and packed a punch.

Whatever the weather forecasts on Tuesday, you’ll be working up a sweat in Meaford Hall when The Road Heavy hammers out their set.

The show starts at 8 p.m., tickets are $35 and are available at the Meaford Hall Box Office
