On Wednesday September 17th, Hank3 stopped at the Outland Ballroom in Springfield, MO for the start of his current West Coast tour. Hank3 played three separate sets of music for the packed house representing the three facets of the 3rd generation performer: Country, Hellbilly (A Fiendish Threat), and Metal (Attention Deficit Domination). Photo journalist Robert Kipness of Black Bird Creative was there to capture the event.
“The place was packed all throughout the night and the return of Dan Johnson on the steel guitar for the Damn Band/hellbilly set was a great experience,” says Robert. “The fiddle was on fire, the banjo was on point, the drums were heart pounding, and 3’s voice was sounding fantastic for it being the first night. Get yourself to a show as it’s only gonna get better as the tour rolls through.”
