Smart Bets: Daryl Hance

Daryl Hance, founder and former and guitarist of the band JJ Grey and Mofro, goes solo with his own brand of bluesy, groove-driven Southern rock. Hance says that while he throws down some loud guitar, the music is “all about fat beats, monster grooves and wide-open spaces.” Musical influences range from Sly and the Family Stone to Muddy Waters “with some early Black Sabbath-AC/DC kind of hard rock funkiness to it.” Expect to hear songs from his 2011 debut album, Hallowed Ground, as well as new material from his as-yet-untitled sophomore album. Hance plays solo at The One Stop on Saturday, Dec. 28, at 9 p.m. Aaron Woody Wood also performs. $8/$10. — Lea McLellan
