Dan Baird and The Homemade Sin Makes UK History
Dan Baird has been making waves in the country music and rock worlds for decades, combining country music with punk elements to make a completely new type of music. In his long career, he hasn't once hit London, though -- until now. Dan Baird and the Homemade Sin is on tour now; don't miss your chance to be part of music history.
This time around, Dan Baird is hitting the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany and the UK. In the United Kingdom, he's planning on hitting two London venues: Bush Hall and St Pancras Old Church. He's also making stops at Glasgow's 02 ABC and Sheffield's the Greystones, among other UK locations. Given the historical significance of his tour, he might hit some more venues in the UK or elsewhere, so keep your eyes peeled.
Dan Baird and the Homemade Sin is an offshoot of Baird's 1980s rock band, the Georgia Satellites. Baird is a guitar collector as well as an excellent guitarist; he often plays a vintage Fender Esquire that once belonged to Steve Marriott. Baird also loves to exercise, and reportedly once ran into Neil Young in an exercise room; the two talked about guitars and equipment for hours.
Dan Baird is a rock and country music legend, having been a charter member of the Georgia Satellites, a 1980s rock band that soared to the top of the charts. In 1990, Baird left the band to try to make it on his own; he soon formed his own band with several ex-members of the Satellites, which he calls The Homemade Sin.
Currently, Dan Baird and the Homemade Sin's line up consists of four members. Besides Baird himself, who sings and plays guitar, he has another guitarist, Warner E. Hodges, from Jason and the Scorchers. Baird's drummer, Mauro Magellan and his bassist, Keith Christopher, are alumni from the Georgia Satellites. Although Georgia Satellites itself has re-formed without Baird, Baird still plays quite a bit of their music in his shows, along with his solo material.
Baird's first solo album, Love Songs for the Hearing Impaired, received critical acclaim, including a positive review from Rolling Stone, which helped launch Baird's new career. Two of his singles from that album quickly rose to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. "I Love You Period" hit No. 26 and "The One I Am" hit No. 13. In the early 2010s, Baird and the Homemade Sins broke through to a new level of success when they performed at Hard Rock Hell and at the esteemed Irish festival, the Kilkenny Festival.
Baird has had several hits with both of his bands as well as on his own. Notably, an EP of the Georgia Satellites was released in the UK as Keep the Faith, grabbing the attention of UK music critics and fans. The single "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" soon followed, hitting the No. 2 position on the UK charts, as did the eponymous Keep the Faith album. Dan Baird's solo albums Love Songs for the Hearing Impaired and Buffalo Nickel also were popular in the UK. Their 2013 album Circus Life was the first to be released in both the UK and US, leading to great critical acclaim.
Expect a rocking experience when you get Dan Baird and the Homemade Sin tickets. The band performs both old and new songs whilst the audience claps, sways, dances and sometimes sings along. The songs have strong beats and the vocals are compelling enough to carry the show, so you won't miss the special effects or spotlights -- staples of rock concerts that Dan Baird does not use.
