Another great night out with Lou Shields at Reggies Music Joint. I hung around after happy hour to check out the other bands, and by gosh, I am glad I did. They were all great, and to hear the headline The Hangdog Hearts play, made the night the night the most enjoyable.
The Fisherman. These guys were cool. I have not heard music like this in person before. Great banjo and washboard, and a great team of musicians!!!!
Now, Friday Night Vendetta, who had stories to be told, and a different rhythm that I enjoyed . . .
For me, it was the Delta Blues Grass sound mixed with a little folk music. A good combination. Let me start you with the headline and work down, then the photos from the bottom up.

(happy hour, and a happy one at that)
Here are the photos starting with my pal Lou . . .
Now for some Kevin Daniels. These two guys were cool, bouncing off each others rhythm, trial by fire at times, with the outcome firing us up. A cool sound, lyrics, just cool people.
Now for some Hangdog . . . one cool cat, one super cool act, and he knows how to play the banjo . . .
This gentlemen stole the show for the evening. No wonder why he was top billing. Great energy, great banjo, great music. If you ever get a chance to go see him, do it!!!
