The Rides blows the roof off Iridium

Article by: Jim Bessman (Examiner.com)

“It’s really great to be in a blues band,” declaredStephen Stills at the start of his new band The Rides’ set Thursday night at Iridium.

The second of two nights at the Midtown club fell on the day following the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Stills noted this in crediting the great musicians who pioneered the genre that he, fellow 1960s rock legend Barry Goldberg and relative childKenny Wayne Shepherd now evoke as The Rides, who in concert also include drummer Chris Layton from from Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble (who now plays with Shepherd) and Crosby, Stills & Nash bassist Kevin McCormick.

The band formed when Stills sought out Goldberg, the legendary keyboardist who played for everyone from Mitch Ryder to The Ramones and co-founded the seminal 1960s blues-rock group Electric Flag, for a blues-rock oriented album project.
