The four piece band took the stage to Herb Albert & The Tijuana Brass' A Taste of Honey. If you don't know the song, look for the record Whipped Cream & Other Delights in your parents record cabinet (it's the one with the naked girl covered in whipped cream). When the background song faded, the roll coaster fast paced guitar driven night began.
Bass player Murray Hammond not only provided excellent back group vocals, he sang lead on a few songs dressed in a fine looking signature Rockmount Western Wear Shirt. Did I mention that they generously gave me tickets to the show? When he sang the bittersweet Valentine with the lyrics "it's a lonely, lonely feelin' when your valentine was wrong." You could feel the heartbreak.

See you at the next show. I'll be the one shamelessly mentioning Rockmount Western Wear that hopefully will be supplying me more free tickets, or a shirt, or some boots.
