Mark Stuart and the Bastard Sons to tour in support of new album

Mark Stuart and The Bastard Sons are kicking it into gear for the fall, with the release this week of the band's brand new CD Bend In The Road, and a tour that begins with a free performance on Friday October 2 for the troops, personnel and visitors to the Air Show at Miramar Marine Corps base in San Diego.

The annual event draws more than half a million spectators over three days. The band performs at the Legends Sports Bar (on a special outdoor stage) at 7 pm. The show is open to the public.

Mark Stuart, the voice and vision of acclaimed alt-country/roots rock outfit Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash is leading the way with his new group Mark Stuart and The Bastard Sons. The Lincoln Journal Star called Bend In The Road "...the best country record...this year," while national music magazine Blurt, said, "Stuart exhibits the grit and the spit to keep the act convincing, and with rousing, rollicking barnburners like "Restless Ramblin' Man," "When Love Comes A Callin'" and "Gone Like a Raven" providing the fodder, their unflinching blue collar credo gets full venting."

Fans can expect no less from the live show, a toe-tapping, boot-scootin' affair that burns up the road with a high-octane groove in the spirit of Country Outlaws Willie, Waylon, Merle, and the Man in Black. A recent live review in the Santa Barbara News Press commented: "Bands like [Mark Stuart and The Bastard Sons] are the reason country music is still vital...The group takes a classic sound, writes great original songs and plays the hell out of them."
