Monday Mashup: Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, and Steve Warnier.

By the length of that title, it looks like we have a ton going on, which we do!

Last weekend Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder paid us a visit, and it was awesome! Bluegrass can be hard for people to play, because you have to play with such passion; either you love something or loathe its existance, there’s no middle ground.  I have to say, Ricky NAILED it. Here’s a clip if you missed it, or if you just want to relive the great music!

Wow. The man can pick a mandolin.

This Saturday we have Steve Warnier with Firefly as his opening act.  That means you get two shows for the price of one, because we love you like that.  You don’t even have to buy us dinner (but if you want to buy ME dinner, well…I don’t say no to free food).  

Steve has been playing since he was a teenager in the 1970s, and has had many top 10 hits since then, like “Your Memory”, “I Should Be With You,” “I Got Dreams” and “Baby I’m Yours.”  And Firefly is made up of Gilbert natives Melanie, McKenzie, and Madelyn, so you should come out and support them! They’re often featured on KMLE, so if you haven’t heard of them yet, call the station and request a song!
