Led by singer Deron Hunter, Jeremy’s Ten: A Pearl Jam Tribute band sounded every bit of Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder as they played numerous songs from the 1991 album Ten from the iconic 1990s band.
The tribute band is based out of Charlotte, N.C., and also played songs outside of tracks from the album Ten such as Daughter. They even played Temple of the Dog’s Hunger Strike with local band Covalence on stage. Covalence opened the show playing Rage Against the Machine songs and also playing Nirvana’s Lithium.
The show ended with Hunter’s vocals alongside Mike Faulkenberry and Ryan Teague’s duel guitar attack, with Ryan Joffe’s bass sound and Bradley Lyles’ hard hitting drums to Alive.
The three hour show was as good as advertised for any fan of Pearl Jam with Jeremy’s Ten: A Pearl Jam Tribute sounding a lot like the prolific Seattle grunge band.
After the show I caught up with the band and they all said that they had a great time and that the Open Chord is a great venue with an awesome crowd.
It was there first time playing in Knoxville and at the Open Chord, but they had good responses saying it was a great staff and sound. Jeremy’s Ten: A Pearl Jam Tribute are looking forward to returning to the Open Chord this summer.
