We are all in unprecedented times, experiencing lockdowns, curfews, and practicing social distancing. But our favourite Kentucky brothers Black Stone Cherry have decided not to let that stop them talking to friends across the globe, so last month they launched the live weekly Cherry Chat.
Talking about the series the band says; “Cherry Chat was born from wanting to give our fans something fun to look forward to and something different than the normal live stream. We have SO enjoyed talking to our friends in so many different bands. Our goal is to make it extremely personable and not like an interview. It’s literally just bands chatting, telling stories, sharing laughs, all while being LIVE to the world!”
The virtual happy hour chats see the guys speak to different bands on different topics. Chris, Ben, Jon, and John-Fred jumped on to a video call with their buddies Halestorm in episode 1 where they talked about how they are writing songs in quarantine, tour dreams, and pranks. Then In episode 2 they caught up with Theory of a Deadman where the shot the breeze on how they met, memories, and how they’re coping with life in general.
Today at 9 pm BST/10 pm CET the guys will be joined live by Monster Truck frontman, Jon ‘Marv’ Harvey for episode 3, where they will be sharing stories and seeing what he’s been up to during the lockdown. If you ever wondered what bands talk about or what it’s like when bands hang out after the show, here’s a glimpse into those conversations. You can set up a reminder and watch it HERE
They have also announced they will be joined by Alter Bridge on episode 4 on Friday 8th May.
