Machine Shop Madness – The Final Four
Your votes have been tallied and we've narrowed the field to just four -- vote now for your favorite band to ever perform at the The Machine Shop during it's kick-ass ten year run in Flint, Michigan.
On the strength of frontwoman Lzzy Hale's powerful voice and the band's old school approach to rock, Halestorm have delivered several unforgettable performances at The Machine Shop. They first played the shop with Shinedown in 2005 and returned to open for bands like Trapt and Royal Bliss -- now they are headliners and fill the place to capacity on every visit.
E|B have been playing The Shop ever since their first single 'Cold (but I'm Still Here)' hit the airwaves back in 2005. They've built a large contingency of fans in Flint after delivering high-energy gigs every single time they're in town. Though there have been a couple lineup changes over the years, the one constant has been that no fan has ever left an Evans Blue show disappointed.
The band quickly became one of the most buzzed-about bands in Flint after their incredible set opening for Framing Hanley and Evans Blue in 2007. Vocalist Darroh's vocal range and crazy onstage antics -- which included hanging from the rafters while singing -- helped score them a headlining gig a month later with a poster reading "Do Not Miss This Show!!!" Fair to Midland have frequently packed The Shop since and recently shot their first ever concert DVD there.
Since their debut, this band has become one of the biggest names in rock -- it's no coincidence that they deliver a killer performance every time they've hit the stage at The Shop. TOAD have sold out The Machine Shop several times -- the most recent being their 2009 gig in support of their massively successful album 'Scars and Souvenirs.'
