Lent Day 21 Cinema Dave to perform BASS on Greta Van Fleet - "Highway Tune" on Saturday April 17

As a student with the School of Rock, Cinema Dave will play bass on this song;

"Highway Tune" was the first song the band Greta Van Fleet had ever written and recorded together. The song's initial guitar riff was cited by guitarist Jake Kiszka as being written as early back as 2010—seven years prior to the song's release as a single, and two years prior to the band even being formed.[3] The riff was then brought to early writing and recording sessions upon the band forming in 2012, and was later reformatted and demoed twice before being recorded in its final form.[3][4] The song was initially used in an episode of the television show Shameless in January 2016.[5] The song was officially released as one of four songs for the band's debut EP, Black Smoke Rising.[6] The song was released on March 31, 2017 as a single,[7][8] and on the EP on April 21, 2017.[9] The song's music video was released 2 days prior to the EP's release, and is mostly a performance-based video, with the band playing in an abandoned warehouse.

The song has received many comparisons to the work of Led Zeppelin,[9][11][12] including comparison to the vocals of Robert Plant.[4][9]
Joshua Kiszka – lead vocals
Jacob Kiszka – guitar
Samuel Kiszka – bass guitar, keyboards
