On the Front Row with Go Fast

Loading the player…

For nearly 12 years, North Little Rock band Go Fast has blended Americana-infused proto-rock, hot-rod culture, monster movies and other American rock staples. Among their influences are southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynryd and Mountain, whose song Mississippi Queen they have covered. Go Fast features Scott Diffee on lead guitar and vocals, Jimmy Powell on drums and Brent LaBeau on bass.
