Established in 1765, The Sons of Liberty was an unconventional warfare organization formed to protect the rights of the American Colonists fighting taxation by the British government through the Stamp Act; which ultimately lead to the American Revolution. Notable members included Alexander Hamilton, Paul Revere, John Hancock, and Samuel Adams.
Drawing on the shared experiences of the founding members as Veterans of the United States Armed Forces, they adopted the name The Sons of Liberty. And in late-2014 The Sons of Liberty band was formed and has been performing the best of Rock & Blues ever since. With a commitment to "Proper Rock & Roll", The Sons endeavor at every show to produce that driving Rock & Roll sound our fans love. The Sons began playing covers from ACDC; Stevie Ray Vaughn; The Rolling Stones; The Black Crowes; CCR; Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers; ZZ Top, etc...
Shawn Smith and Randy Hughey - initially performing together in the UK circa early 2000's - realized they simply needed to reconnect with each other to work on original material. Bringing in Drummer Adam Bell - who played off and on with Shawn in the intervening years - and Bassist Todd Glover, established the founding members. Ryan Smith stepped in for Adam for six-months while the band continued to gig locally at pubs and festivals, with Ray Kimbro helping out when Todd had to step away. Through it all, The Sons' identity grew; and in February of 2017 they welcomed Rob Wolfe on bass and in June 2017 Charlie Fultz on drums. Their debut album, "Ride Off Again", is the cornerstone of the band's original music written by Randy and Shawn, which aims to continue the legacy of the great bands that influenced them: driving drums and bass, rocking guitars and soulful singing.
