High Octane and Hillbilly Country!!!

WHEW! Last night's RGHH was a powerful punch! The evening began with the usual quirky pluckin's of Kc Stanton on uke followed by Mark Smeltzer lyrical songwriting delivered through his homemade banjo. Adam Lee & The Dead Horse Company jumped up and gifted us with some fine rockin' country tunes. The first Inbetween was Brain Frame--beautiful lyrics and haunting vocals. Then the Calamity Cubes kicked up the octane--that boy doesn't really need mic! The next Inbetween spot was filled by The Fountain City Ramblers--an electric band who went acoustic for a couple songs that night. Another great set by Adam & Johnny. Then as always, Cheri Woods quieted the room with her smart sassy words. The Calamity Cubes knocked me out with their second set--new songs that really kicked--I was recalling those punk smashing days! The night ended with a Weeping Pilgrim Jubilee. Great night--high energy, stoked musicians, appreciative crowd.
