The Freeway Revival brings its eclectic mix of rock, blues, and country-inspired music from Asheville, N.C. to Grand Junction for a 9:30 p.m. show Saturday, May 3, at Cruisers Bar, 715 Horizon Drive.

The band — singer/songwriter Adam Clayton, Johnathon Clayton and Joey Lee on guitar and drummer Matt Ramsdell — has only been together as a group for several months, but the relationship between the Clayton brothers and Lee dates back to high school.

“One we started graduating, we started getting more serious and wrote songs together and wanted to see how far we could take it and got out there and started touring,” Adam Clayton said.

Influenced by a previous generation of musicians such as Jackson Browne, Neil Young and The Allman Brothers Band, The Freeway Revival has nearly two dozen original songs in its repertoire and will spend a part of this summer in Los Angeles with producer John Ryan of Chicago Kid Productions “to get our songs organized and get our sound a little more defined,” Adam Clayton said. “We like to play a lot of different types of music, but when you make that first record you have to have it a little more organized.”

Before Los Angeles, however, is a stop in Grand Junction.

“I love Grand Junction,” Adam Clayton said. “People there have been really accepting of us and really supportive. We have a lot in common with people we’ve met there. Even the musicians we’ve met there are really nice. Everybody likes to have a good time. I like that.”
