The Details: The guys in Nazareth have been delivering quality Classic Rock for 45 years and while the term “Classic” was not associated with them back in their original heyday It’s clear to all their fans that they still have the right stuff. Formed in 1968, the band still finds its original singer Dan McCafferty and bassist Pete Agnew at the helm along with members who have been a part of the group since the mid-nineties. They’ll be bringing an exciting set to NYC with the help of support act The Artimus Pyle Band, and yes that is Artimus Pyle from Lynyrd Skynrd. Thanks to the fine folks at B.B. King Blues Club, I’ll be putting some PiercingMetal readers into the show. Read on further down the post for how to participate in this one.

The casino had two of them standing together and since no one was playing yet I quickly snapped a photograph.
