Foghat celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2021, and their live performances show why the band is still around and why they will be able to keep on rockin’ as long as they want to play! Their music is timeless, and touring is part of their DNA. Foghat’s live show is as intense as ever with the incredible energy and musicianship that one would expect and hope for from a seasoned band with such a long musical history and they are bringing their fans along for the ride. These guys just love to play!
Not content to rest on their laurels, the band released a great new studio album in June 2016 titled “Under the Influence”, and another ‘live’ album in June of 2017 called ‘Live at the Belly Up’. They then followed it up with a double CD/DVD in 2021, 8 Days on the Road (recorded live at Daryl’s House Club in 2019!) All were given great reviews by press & fans alike. Foghat fans are everywhere and their audience consists of all ages. From the young who play Guitar Hero III and know all the lyrics to ‘Slow Ride’, to the Dazed & Confused generation of 30-40 somethings and the ‘boomers’ who bought Foghat’s first vinyl or 8 track! Looking out at the audience and seeing all generations rockin’ to Foghat is very gratifying to the band. “The band just wants to make sure that after every show, they are all convinced that they just got rocked, from the second we start the first song to the end of the show”.
If Foghat had only given us ‘Slow Ride’, the band’s place in rock history would be secure. But the band is so much more than that. As stated by Roger Earl, “we are still a ‘work in progress’, writing and recording and plan to be until the day we depart this earth”. The band has started work on yet another Blues/Rock Studio Album released in late 2022)! So, stay tuned, you cannot keep these boys down!
