The Line Up has been the premier band on The Island for more than a decade, and a real treasure for the local music scene!

Yes, they have become far too "refined" and "snooty" in Wasington, DC to support good Rock and Roll, on a regular basis, so they hadn't seen what Texas-based Rock was all about since ZZ Top played for George W. Bush in 2001! The Line Up blew into town, and showed them a thing or two!! They are still trying to figure out what hit them!!

It all begins with the Foundation! Willy G. starts it off by laying down an anguished drum beat that sounds just like the horsemen who are galloping toward us with apocalyptic news! Onto this, Stacy C. adds a layer of inspired, urgent baseline, that leaves no doubt what is coming! Then, into this controlled chaos steps Jeffrey P. with an absolutely faithful rendering of Jimi’s searing guitar work! It is a truly astounding performance!

How do I KNOW that it is THAT GOOD? Because it gives me the same chills that I got the first time I heard Jimi do it in 1968!! And, I'm not the only one who "gets it", since it seldom fails to draw a standing ovation, no matter who is there to hear it no one is still sitting in their lounge chairs at the end of the performance!! It is the highlight of their show!

When The Line Up performs “All Along the Watchtower”, at the East Beach Pavilion, it is more powerful than at any other location! It is like being at an ancient ceremony re-enacted on a sacred Rock and Roll alter! It is in that special place, that the heavens align to help the band Channel the Power of the Universe! It is as though you have gone back in time to Stonehenge, to watch the Druid High Priests perform one of their sacred rituals!


Thank you: Willy Gonzalez, Stacy Cook and Jeffrey Pennington! You have kept the ancient rituals of the Golden Age of Rock and Roll alive! Since Babylon has indeed fallen, as Dylan told us; what else do we have to keep us going?

And, if you listen to them play this song, with the right kind of ears; it does sound like it’s 1968 again!
