Any new band composed of veteran players can only hope the chemistry clicks in such a way that makes them realize what they had been missing all along, and so far The Rides are right on course. For “the blues band of my dreams,” classic-rock chieftain Stephen Stills (Buffalo Springfield, CSNY) recruited ’90s guitar prodigy Kenny Wayne Shepherd (“Blue on Black”) and esteemed Chicago keyboardist Barry Goldberg, whose credentials stretch back to jamming with Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf as a teenager. The trio’s 2013 debut album, Can't Get Enough, captured a spark of rejuvenation that soon enough spread to the stage, where The Rides’ repertoire spans the Stooges’s “Search and Destroy” to Elmore James’s “Talk to Me Baby.” Last year the group struck while the iron was hot with a studio followup, Pierced Arrow. Texas fans should be delighted to learn that Shepherd’s regular drummer, Chris Layton of Double Trouble fame, is on board for both Pierced Arrow and this tour.
