So once again when does your Band play?
And where??<quoted text>
Why is it so important? Your fixation with her band and its whereabouts is starting to look like obsession. She doesn't like Saddle Up, she has an opinion on the lead singer, she's allowed. It's what makes this country great and one of the very ideals my sons are fighting for in the Armed Services.=)

Peace, love and all that 60's hippie rhetoric.

Artgal you are the one that started this page on Saddle Up, all it comes down to is one band doing Great around the area and putting alot of Hard work in to it, yes I know the lead Singer of Saddle Up and he would take the shirt off his Back for anyone and he has done that trust me, he would help anyone when in need, he's a good person at Heart, You an everyone need to know what kind of guy he is, Do you remember the tornado that hit, he did a show Along with too other bands and Raised 17000$ for them that was Mike's idea just to help out, also you say your son is in the service, he also has done things for the troops, plus this sat he is doing a show to raise money for Kids with Cancer. Just saying you need to know him..

Jess, read the first post. It was a question as to why the saddle up threads previously started had disappeared. And honestly, I don't care if he. Would spit in my mouth if I were dying of thirst. The fact remains that no matter how much their fans try, they aren't going to bully or verbally abuse people into liking the band. Me, I could really care less. As far as the how on Saturdy, I know about it because my oldest child is going to it because she is a fan.

Saddle Up? Makes me wanna throw up! Seriously, do they ever practice? They Suck! The band sounds like they are all playing a different song. Vocals are like alley cats in heat screaming. Worst local band I have ever seen.

I was there last night and it was bad. We actually left halfway through it because if they didn't sound good by then it wasn't going to happen. Last time I let my husband talk me into going to see them.

Funny how some of you talk so much negativity on this particular band yet you always seem to know exactly where they are playing. I was there last night as well being that I am very good friends with the family that hosted this event. Everyone seemed to enjoy them and they actually played longer than they were expected. Great job Saddle Up! Keep doing the great things you do for people and keep your heads high. For all the people who have something negative to say there are those of us that love and enjoy all of you.

Even though I'm not a huge country music fan, I did attend the show on Saturday. It was for a good cause so what the hell. Since I did post prior to this that Saddle Up sucked after veiwing their video's on youtube, I would like to apolagize. I should know better than to base my opinion on video's that you do not know who filmed or the sound quality of the equipment used. The band is not bad, and most certainly not the worse local band around like people are making them out to be. They seemed to enjoy what they are doing. They will need to be able to write their own music if they want to go any farther than a local band, but the songs they did cover where not bad. Mike, whom everyone wants to pick on, did not seem stuck up to me. He interacted with the crowd (and not just with the good looking females) and even let a couple of people in the audience sing with him. Most singer won't give up control of the mike for an off key, can't sing, random person. The band sounded good, guitar player is probably the best person in the band. I actually prefered the songs he sang, as opposed to Mike's songs, but that just my taste. So hats off to the band for helping out a good cause. Keep doing what your doing, and don't take the critism you get as a put down. Use it, learn from it and make the band even better. That will piss the nay-sayers off more than anything.

If anyone thinks this band is any good, well you obviously don't get out much! Good grief! They are terrible!

My boyfriend is a guitar player, so i've pretty much seen every local band currently playing. I'm not saying there is no room for improvement in this band, but again they are far from the worst band around. I also was wrong in judging a band just by watching youtube video's. You know the great thing about music? You can listen to a band and love them. I can listen to the same band and think they suck. Thats what personal choice and opinions are all about. The people at the show Saturday seemed to be enjoying themselves. Thats what counts. If you don't like them thats ok to, don't go see them, again personal choice.

I saw Mike one night in Bradenville (Old Amvets). He was about 2 seats down from me. He was a total asshole! Came off as very arrogant, too good for anyone or anything in the bar that night. After witnessing his attitude, I know I will never go and support his band anywhere they are playing. Just based on his attitude. Too bad for the rest of the band. When your a sort of local celebrity, and I use that term loosely, there is a certain repoire that should go with it. Try to be more friendly, Mike. Dont be a dick.
