  • ZZ Top

    ZZ Top

    Blues-Rock

    ZZ Top, “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas”, got its start in 1969 and includes all three of the original members in Billy Gibbons (lead guitar, vocals) Dusty Hill (bass guitar, keyboard, vocals) and Frank Beard (drums). Known for their brand of blues inspired rock n’ roll or “boogie woogie”, ZZ Top scored their first Top 10 hit in 1973 with the classic, “LaGrange”. The 70’s saw them produce more successful singles in “Tush”, “I Thank You” and “Cheap Sunglasses”. Billboard charting success continued in the early 1980’s with hits like “Tube Snake Boogie” and “Pearl Necklace”. It was MTV and incredible commercial success of their Eliminator album in 1983 that catapulted the group to arena level rock-stars playing venues around the globe and producing sales in excess of 10,000,000 for that album alone. The band’s signature beards and catchy music videos made the them MTV icons. Hits from Eliminator included “Gimme All Your Lovin”, “Legs”, “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Got Me Under Pressure”. They went on to produce additional hits in the 80’s including “Rough Boy”, “Sleeping Bag” and Elvis’s “Viva Las Vegas”. The group has sold over 50 million records worldwide.

    Austin Hanks

    Roots Rock

    Shellabration is excited to announce Austin Hanks as direct support for ZZ TOP at Shellabration 2018 on Saturday, June 30th at Rogers Sports Complex in Fort Dodge. A singer-songwriter and left-handed guitar player from the Foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of Alabama, he started as a member of the Birmingham, Alabama based band, Slick Lilly. They were considered one of the hottest southern rock bands of the 90’s playing upwards of 300 live shows per year. Austin Hanks currently resides in Southern California. Making a name for himself on the Los Angeles music scene since 2005, his music has been described as “rockin’ country soul” and “genuine juke from the Deep Dirty South”. Before moving to California, he lived and worked in Nashville, developing his song writing skills while building music industry connections. Austin Hanks has played shows with legends like ZZ TOP, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company, Derek Trucks, Blues Traveler, Black Crowes, Trace Atkins, Widespread Panic and many more. 

    Austin Hanks served as an opening act on scores of ZZ TOP tour dates in 2017. “That was one of the things that attracted us to Austin, said Shellabration President, Jim Reed. Not only is his music incredibly good, Billy Gibbons (of ZZ TOP) served as Executive Producer on his latest album. If the kid’s good enough for the “Reverend Willy G”, he’s definitely good enough for Shellabration”, added Reed. That album, entitled “Alabastard” was released in 2017. In addition to serving as Executive Producer of the album, Billy Gibbons also played on the record along with Ricky Medlocke of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimmy Hall from Wet Willie, Steve Ferrone from Tom Petty and Doug Pettibone of John Mayer. “I came up with the title of my new album by creating a word that means a man drifting through with no real homeland, an Alabama bastard, a misplaced and misunderstood man on a mission,” said Austin Hanks. In addition to writing his own material, he also co-wrote the song “Flyin’ High” with Billy Gibbons for ZZ TOP’s “Futura” album. “It was Austin’s video on You Tube for the song Risin’ Water Blues featuring Billy Gibbons that sealed the deal for me, said Reed. It’s got a gritty delta blues vibe that just exudes cool. Sign us up.”

  • Wild Ambition
