Finally, we make some headway. Those of you that know me, know that I believe in music and everything that goes with it. Car stereo, marching bands, guitars, concerts. You name it, I like it.

You also know that though I have lived a crazy life and it woulda done me well to leave Rogersville, I stayed anyway. I love my hometown. And I have been bothered by the fact that I cant seem to link the two... my hometown and music.

Guys, we are always complaining about nothing to do. How old money rules this town.(How we ain't GOT no money) How certain types of entertainment are oppressed. Well, I would like to see that changed.

If we could get a ball rolling, I would like to see shows of all sorts come right here in Rogersville. Live bands of all genres, hip-hop concerts, stand-up comedy, and even boxing. All it would take is a little support from those of you who wish you didn't have to pour your money into your fuel tank only to spend more of it outside of your local economy.

That's why I am tickled to death about a show coming up THIS Saturday. Even though I won't be in town, I KNOW that we need this show. We also need your help. So, check it out.

There are several good local bands here, but we are forced to travel to out-of-town gigs, just so we can have a show.

3 LEGGED DOG is one of those bands. I am close friends with the all these guys, but I am not biased when I say that they are one killer rock band. They got it all. Drums are rock solid and felt. Bass guitar is spot-on and full. "Blood Harmony" also translates to guitarists, too. This is evident in Josh and Ben who are brothers and both very skilled on lead guitars. Add in the fact that everybody shares vocal duties and harmonies equally, and you got yourself a regular super group. They play a wide variety of Rock and Roll music. I'm talkin' Led Zep, Black Label Society, AC/DC, Fuel, STP, Judas Priest, Poison, Tom Petty... You name it, they play it. Awesome group!

Now since we are talking about a full production concert, it just wouldn't be right not to have more than one band. So, 3LD has teamed up with HILLBILLY BREAK. My only exposure to the band has been via YouTube, but I have to say that it was sounding pretty good. They, too, play an excellent selection of Classic Rock. I have played with a couple of these individuals over the years, and they are no shabs. One is drummer, Eric Williams. You may know him from Music Palace. How many times have you gone in and said "Eric, man, I'd like to come hear you play."? Here's your chance. I promise this is gonna be a great show, people!

It starts at 9:00 (Doors open at 8pm) THIS SATURDAY on the top floor of the American Legion (not to be confused with VFW). A great place to see a concert. I have played there several times and I absolutely love the sound in there. They're not gonna rob you. You get to see a great concert for only $6. Although concessions will be available, you may also bring your own beverage.(Maybe you buy in bulk?) You want an GREAT inexpensive night out of the house? Right here it is...

It only takes one good night for it to perpetuate. Won't you come and leave your worries at home for an evening? This is one show you can't afford to miss.

Must suck, because everyone thinks your are nuts. There are NO real bands in Rogvegas. All the real musicians are from Knoxville, and Nashville. Get a clue dude...
