Son of a Bad Man to Play at UT Tyler on Monday [VIDEO]

Facebook: Son of a Bad Man

Southern pop outfit Son of a Bad Man are set to bring their talents to The University of Texas at Tyler campus at 11:30 a.m. Monday, April 9.

Singer-songwriter Shawn Fisher has led the band at shows across the United States since their debut EP in 2007.

Son of a Bad Man’s raucous blend of country twang with unrelenting vocal melodies earned the band a performing slot at Lollapalooza in 2010.

Their debut full-length album, “Here’s to the Falling In …” was released Jan. 28 of this year.

The album features an eclectic blend of powerful guitar riffs and infectious hooks that Fisher has described as a southern Matchbox 20 sound.

Fisher and his band mates are in the midst of a college tour that will take SOBM to Texas A&M Texarkana, Schreiner University and Austin Community College. In May, they will join “Man on Earth” for shows in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and other major cities along the East Coast.

SOBM is known for covering popular songs in between and during live sets. Notable performances include energetic versions of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now.”

UT Tyler students can catch the Jacksonville, Fla., natives when they perform at Harvey Deck for the campus’s annual crawfish boil. The public also is invited to view the free concert.

If you want to sing along, be sure to preview SOBM’s songs on their MySpace page.
