CINDERELLA guitarist Jeff Labar has recruited a band and booked solo dates.
Labar, who recently released debut solo album One For The Road, has told Hot Metal he will link up with Nashville bassist Jasmine Cain and her band.
“I have booked a few shows – I’m going to try it out,” Labar says from his home in Nashville.
“I’ve never been the frontman, the singer of a band before, but I’m going to try it out November 15 in Indianapolis and a couple more shows in December.
“But I think next year I might start hitting it hard with my bass player, who is Jasmine Caine. She’s a bass player in my video, “No Strings”, and she’s a great singer-songwriter-performer-artist in her own right.”
Cain’s band is rounded out by Zach Ballard (drums), and Benjamin Johnson guitar.
Labar continues: “Basically, her band is backing me up. They’re taking me under their wing, basically.
“This will be the first … Jasmine and I have been crossing paths for years and we finally got to work together in my video.
“We’re going to put it to the test live.”
