Add to Calendar 30-03-2013 30-03-2013 15 The Moving Sidewalks Featuring Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top Before achieving multi platinum success with that "little ol' band from Texas" ZZ Top, a young Billy Gibbons lead a hard charging psychedelic blues rock outfit called The Moving Sidewalks featuring Dan Mitchell on drums, Don Summers on bass, and Tom Moore on keyboards. Starting in 1966 these four helped pioneer a style of music that sounds as spontaneous and combustible today as it did then. Rooted in Texas soul and rhythm & blues and influenced by Austin's 13th Floor Elevators, Jimi Hendrix, and early California psychedelia, they pushed the sonic envelope, hot rodding 12 bar blues. And in 1967 that sound took them to #1 on local radio with the garage rock classic, "99th Floor" and out on the road w/ Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Jeff Beck Group w/ Rod Stewart and more. But The Moving Sidewalks came to a stop in the summer of '69 when Tom Moore and Don Summers were drafted just before the release of their debut lp Flash, a heady brew of muscular hallucinatory rock. For more than 45 years The Moving Sidewalks music and their friendship have endured. From hippie jam bands to garage bands you can hear their influence. Now Dan, Tom, Don, and Billy are taking the stage again to celebrate their legacy and the release of Moving Sidewalks - The Complete Collection.
