 I arrived in time for them to take a break but didn’t want to miss them, so stuck around for a their second set.
 It has been around a year since they played here so had a good sized appreciative crowd hanging out, some of whom came from out of town for the show.

 They played a solid set of authentic, heartfelt country/roots/rock music. Justin Smith added  fleet fingered mandolin and alternated lead vocals with Cody Shearer, bassist Pete Loughlin and steel guitarist/ lead guitarist Steve Loree. They sang impressive five part vocal harmonies. They played several songs from their two CDs as well as covers from people like Townes Van Zandt.

 They second set started slow with “Going West,” but they quickly picked up the tempo. As usual they played a fantastic show for an appreciative audience.
