Breanne Urban and Southern Flyer return to Casino Lethbridge with lots of country

 I haven’t seen Breanne Urban and Southern Flyer for a few years, so I made a point of catching one of their sets, Friday, Nov. 16 at Casino Lethbridge.

 They were a delight as they worked though a solid set of  a variety of country and rock hits.


Breanne  Urban took turns  singing lead vocals with  Tom Hudson, backed by lead guitarist John Malcolm, drummer Bob Gammon and bassist Les Kesler. Bruce MacKay played keyboards and even busted out the accordion for a couple of songs including John Cougar Mellencamp’s  “Cherry Bomb” just as I arrived.


Breanne belted out an excellent version of Gretchen Wilson’s “Redneck Woman,” but for the most part was holding back and was almost completely drowned out by the band, though she sang subtle vocal harmonies which usually broke through.


Hudson belted out an excellent version of  “Cadillac Ranch” and an excellent version of Confederate Railroad’s “Trashy Side” and the Rolling Stones’ “Honky Tonk Woman.”

 Guitarist John Malcolm even sang lead on Hal Ketchum’s “Small Town Saturday Night.”


 The room was full with most of the people two stepping and having a good time, with a couple of birthday parties celebrating to local live music and plenty of familiar hits.
