(Prospect PR) Southern roots rockers Robert Jon & The Wreck have released an extended live version of "Hey Hey Mama," a fan favorite that will be featured on their first ever live DVD Live At The Ancienne Belgique, out 4/21 via Joe Bonamassa's Journeyman Records.
"Hey Hey Mama" was initially on the Good Life Pie (2016) album, which featured Kris Butcher on guitar and Dave Pelusi on bass," recalls frontman Robert Jon Burrison. "It's always been a common selection in the live set, featuring vocal harmonies in the chorus and tons of space for trading and improvising licks. With the addition of Henry and Warren in 2017, the song evolved and took on a new life. This live version features a fuzzy guitar solo as the intro and an extended, psychedelia-influenced outro jam.
Recorded at a sold-out show at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Belgium on June 29th, 2022, Live At The Ancienne Belgique captures the Wreck in the midst of their longest-ever tour - 67 performances in 75 days across 9 countries. The tour had been postponed for nearly two years due to the pandemic, so by the time the band hit the stage of the Ancienne Belgique, 50+ performances into the tour, they were a well-oiled machine ready to blow the roof off the place. The night was nothing less than spectacular, featuring a setlist that spanned the last decade of their prolific career, from their 2015 debut to their 2023 release. Watch the video below:
