On Thursday, May 15, 2014 The Rave was proud to welcome Dustin Lynch with special guest Granger Smith for an awesome show. These two gentlemen had  The Rave packed with people from wall to wall and overflowing everywhere. You thought it was a sold out show.  Granger Smith put on a great set including some flags, guns and some smoke shooter deals that shoot bursts at high speeds to make for a cool effect. They really put on an action packed performance which prepped everyone for Dustin.  After talking with some people I found people were here from Appleton and Kohler which are a decent hike for some but for their love of Granger Smith they made the voyage for the show. My favorite song they jammed was The Country Boy Song. Got to meet Dustin and he was a straight up guy. He signed my hat with his phrase STAY COUNTRY. He seemed truly grateful to be where he was.

Dustin opened up with She Cranks My Tractor and it was all uphill from there. He played many cover songs from all different genres which the crowd really was digging and my personal favorite Fishing In The Dark. He played some old and new songs including Cowboys and Angles, Wild in your Smile and his brand new jam Where It Is among many more. He did a great job working the crowd and playing the heck out of that guitar. The whole crowd knew every word to every song he sang his or not. It was a great show full of energy and we hope to see him back in Milwaukee soon.
