This Past Weekend in AL & TX
Wed., Jul. 30. 2008 12:06am EDT
We had great turnouts for all three of our concerts this past weekend in Empire AL, Austin TX, and Tyler TX. The folks in Tyler got to see something extra-special, though -- our drummer, Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner, playing on a platform inset in the wall, 14 feet in the air!
Here's an email excerpt from the promoter of the Tyler concert:
Thanks to y'all for such an awesome event. Having been around a few "successful people", it is refreshing to be around a group that still acts "human." Humans behaving humanly, what a novel concept.Here are a few more comments from fans:
Saw you last night in Tyler, and y'all were fantastic! I am so glad I was able to take my daughter and grandson.Loved the concert! I brought my son along and he also liked it. My son even said he wants to see you again the next time you're in Texas!
