This is very special indeed. We are proud to welcome Drivin N Cryin back to Sheffield for an incredibly intimate acoustic show at The Dorothy Pax in the heart of the Steel City. In 2015 the band played their first show in the UK for 23 years at The Greystones in Sheffield, returning the following year for a sell-out show at the same venue.

This special acoustic show promises to be a unique and amazing evening of sublime rock n roll. Ask anyone who has seen them live or anyone who was at that first Sheffield show this band will change your life! Support is from the lovely bearded peeps at The Fargo Railroad Co. What's not to love? Simply live music at its absolute best!

Because of the intimate nature of this show, there are STRICTLY LIMITED TICKETS available. Best get your skates on before it sells out!

Celebrating their 33rd Anniversary together, Atlanta-based folk-rock act, Drivin N Cryin, have spent most of their career on tour. With a gold record, 10 full-length albums, and a handful of EPs to their credit, the band refuses to rest.

A quote from the band's lead singer, Kevin Kinney, gives a little insight into what Drivin N Cryin is all about: We are a band that's like your record collection. Drawing influence from a wide array of musical elements, Drivin N Cryin has developed a unique sound over the years. Their name derives from the eclectic nature of this sound: a little drivin' rock n roll and a little country twang. Comfortable with their past and confident in their future, the band has an arsenal of songs, a full tank of gas, and no plans of stopping any time soon.

Crunching hard rock is the drivin part, brittle countryish balladry the cryin, with the two linked by a heavy dose of Led Zeppelinphilia. If Paul Westerberg had grown up worshipping Angus Young instead of Alex Chilton, the Replacements might have sounded something like this Atlanta band. Rolling Stone Magazine
