For weeks, I wanted to be at this show. I did not know Wood & Wire by name and was looking forward to checking out someone new to me. By this point, I know most of the music that I see. I rolled in as they were picking. I looked up to see my favorite mandolin player, Billy Bright. Sure Grisman is a god, but Billy tears it up and down. Some of the best music experiences I’ve had have been with the two high string band and the Texas trio. I know someone you can agree… so I loved this band right away. A guitar, bass and banjo shared the stage. They traded off solos and vocals. I dug this band… next up was the whiskey shivers. Pure fun. I has seen them a few times at the Continental Club. Like the opener, they also owned the crowd. The violin guy had the meanest mullet I have ever seen. He is actually a nice guy . The percussionist who also looked mean, came down to ask me how I liked the show on his way to play an encore in the middle of the crowd. I had a great time. I even bought a poster. Both groups were solid and have a new fan.
