I recently had my first Nashville band show on October 21st at a great club called The Rutledge downtown off of 4th Ave. The show featured a few familiar faces (lead guitarist Christopher Bell and former FLB drummer Mike Ball), as well as some new special guests including bassist Joe Schneider, violinist DeMetri Moon, vocalist Marion Grace (also a Frederick County native!) and saxophone player Jeff Lopez from the Taylor Hicks Band!
A friend of the band was able to get some great video footage for several of the songs (thanks, Wanda!), including a few new ones. Here are the links to the YouTube vids:
Leaving You Tonight
Right Here And Right Now
Feelin' Alright (encore)
