On day 2 of WeissFest, music fans were treated to an all-star free show. Sandwiched between Jersey Rock vets Kodiak and Black Sabbath tribute Just Sabbath was a rare musical experience. Keith Roth’s side project City Asylum. The group hails from Shredwood Forest, NJ and describes themselves as a ” Band of Jersey guys who spent their early formative years going to shows in gritty NYC in the 70’s. We play music that spawned punk.” The band was joined on stage by Jerry Gaskill of Kings X, Kingston & Greystarr, Bumblefoot, and Rock N’ Roll Hall of Famer Carmine Appice. Check out video of the band performing Led Zeppelin’s “Misty Mountain Hop” below.
