A seemingly small thing, a transformer, but when it went, the stage became quiet. Vince Herman grabbed his mandolin and headed into the crowd with guitar and fiddle back up for some old-fashioned, unplugged, good-time music.
Leftover Salmon was one of my favorite bands, which doesn't mean I liked everything they did, but bonus points for originality and high spirits. I saw Vince MC the First Annual Mulberry Mountain Music Festival up on the pig tail in the Ozarks, near Fayetteville. After the Salmon break up, I followed Great American Taxi, and saw them at the Badlander earlier this year.
