Josh Thompson at Mavericks Recap
Jacksonville Fl - On Friday the 13th at Mavericks, many people attended Josh Thompson’s concert. This artist is known for his hit songs “Beer On the Table”, “Way Out Here”, and “Coming Around”. This artist has some very catchy songs, but some are also repetitive. Before this artist went on to perform, Stephen Carey opened up for Josh. This was the first time I had heard of him or his music. His music is a country rock sound. When he came out to perform, his opening had a little bit of “Friday the 13th” intro since it was Friday the 13th. Listening to him perform was really cool, I thought this guy was a good choice to open up the concert at Mavericks.
Once Stephen Carey finished up, the crowd was excited and waiting for the concert to start. The crowd was excited to see Josh Thompson perform. I thought his performance was good and brought in the crowds who like to drink and party. Josh also performed a new song called “Cold Beer With Your Name On It”, for an upcoming album that he is working on. I think this guy writes a lot of songs that fit many Honky Tonks and Dive bars. Josh Thompson hasn’t gotten much radio airplay in a while; his last album came out in 2010. But hopef... [Read More]
