Capone's Weekend

Had an awesome weekend at Capone's in downtown Johnson City. Had our TriCitiesNights.com Blue Plum Kickoff show with Broken Bow Records' James Wesley. James is a great, great guy and a phenomenal talent. Be sure to check out his songs "Real" and "Jackson Hole." Had a great turnout over 550 people for the show.

Late Friday, we discovered that one of the bands opening for The Delta Saints at the Blue Plum Festival would not be able to make their 10:30 spot at Capone's, so we put together an acoustic set off the cuff with about 10 songs. Had a great time and it was a unique blend of guitar, bass and steel. The Delta Saints are an awesome group and it was fun to be able to share the stage with those guys that night.

We're looking to expand our calendar this summer. We have a show booked for July 3rd at Sonny's Marina, but are looking to expand towards Knoxville and Asheville, N.C. as well.
