Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown Discuss Touring With Jeff Beck [Sponsored Post]
As a kid, 22-year-old rocker Tyler Bryant spent plenty of time listening to the music of Jeff Beck, so it must’ve been quite a thrill when the classic rock legend tapped him and his band, the Shakedown, as tour openers. It must have been an even bigger thrill when Bryant began guesting with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer during his headlining set each night.
“There were a couple of nights where I’d walk out on stage and you could hear the crowd talking crap about me,” Bryant says in the video above, describing Beck fans’ initial skepticism for the younger rocker. “I’d start playing, and we’d sell 300 or 400 CDs that night. It was really cool to win over the older crowd.”
