Sparta, TN

What a place!
We arrived on a cold, sunny afternoon to meet Erik's cousins, who has never met. That night we were playing a show at the bar they run called My Place. First we got the grand tour of the area. We stopped at the river where everyone hangs out at over the summer, and the stories they had made it seem like a world of fun! Driving trucks up and down and across the river, BBQing in the middle of it, hoo wee! They then took us to High Rock, which is this overlook where you can see 8 counties and we think about 80 miles out. Simply stunning. After a delicious home cooked meal, we headed to the bar to set up. The show began and everyone started having a lot of fun! We made our way through the book of cover songs, playing some good ol' favorites. We had a guest singing up there with us named Randy, who was singing loud, jamming out, and making sure we were on beat! 1, 2, 3, 4!! Some good friends were made that night, all people who really enjoyed our music. Butch Bower even sang "House of the Rising Sun" for us and asked us to play at his 63rd birthday party! Overall is was such a fun night that I'm sure none of us will forget.

As soon as we were packed up and off stage, the 15 hour drive to White Plains, NY began. See you up North!
