Music video — Big Daddy Love performing “Circle Around The Sun” at Martin’s Downtown, early last Sunday morning
Big Daddy Love has been coming to Roanoke consistently for a couple of years now. But about six month back, the band made big changes. Daniel Justin Smith, the group’s longtime frontman, left the act to pursue a different tack (he’ll be at Kirk Avenue Music Hall on Oct. 27, opening for Jim Lauderdale).
The band added new singer/guitarist, Scott Moss, and got a new drummer, Scott Lewis (ex-Jackass Flats). You’d think the band would be way different. But nope. It still rocks, and the additions in no way subtract.
From early Sunday morning at Martin’s Downtown, here’s one of the band’s most popular songs, “Circle Around The Sun.” And it’s just as effective a rouser as it has been.
