Lets not beat around the bush. They, viz. the ‘Country Mile‘, were good. Probably very good, or very close to that. We were impressed.

Last week, with the Beatles Tribute Band both Deanna and I thought that they were just ‘OK’. Yesterday, June 20, 2013, there was no equivocation. We both thought, very quickly at that, that these folks were good.

They were uncomplicated, very straightforward and ‘workmen’ like — though they had a very hard working female fiddler. They didn’t spend too much time or energy with chatter, banter or trying to parlay with the crowd. They just got on with playing good music for 100 minutes — which is probably what they were contracted to do; 7 to 9 pm with a 20 minute intermission.

They had a compelling, non-stop twangy, very country, rhythm and a pulsating beat. The drummer was good. They had a 5-string bass. That might have made a difference. The lead guitarist sure did his job, very ably.

They didn’t have any original songs. They are a cover band – and don’t make any bones about it. I can see why they are so heavily booked. I would gladly go see them again.

We all lucked out with the weather again. Three Saturdays in a row. It looked a bit iffy even at 6 pm. Deanna checked the radar. There were thunderstorms all around us. I was still willing to take a chance. It is not like we are driving to Dartmouth. If it got rained out we get back in the Kia and come home. But, it was glorious again.

There were, at any given time, at least 3 folks doing what looked like pretty decent line dancing. They loved it and they did put on a good show.

Not as many people as in the prior two weeks. It could have been the weather. It could have been the genre of music. But those that were there sure appeared to have a good time and we were indeed given a good show.

Thank YOU, Wolfeboro — again. Looking forward to next Saturday. 

This Saturday’s, viz. July 20, 2013, FREE ‘Band At The Stand’ In Wolfeboro, NH Will Be ‘Country Mile’.

I had never heard of them but I looked them up last night. Seems pretty decent. Appears to have been around for a long time and winning awards a decade ago.

Impressive list of gigs.

They have a rather higgledy piggledy Web page which is very much a stream of consciousness with a jumble of unmatched fonts and colors — the embedded links buried among the spurious detritus.  They really could do with an upgraded, semi-professional Website. I was also surprised that I could not find any ‘current’ video clips on YouTube. I eventually, having scrolled past it many times, eventually found some music clips on their Web page. They appear to do quite a few cover songs. I checked out ‘Chicken Fried’ since I am familiar with the Zak Brown original. They sound good. Authentic. A good structured Website with videos could do wonders for these guys — but given their apparent popularity they probably are doing just fine.

So this will be the 3rd concert this year. The last two, as chronicled in the above links, were good, one better than the other. The weather has been incredibly kind. So I am hoping we get three in a row. We plan to attend if we can. We have a few other things to do that day and it is going to be an early start for us.

But, I wanted to make sure that I gave you all a heads up on this upcoming event. Enjoy.
