"It was an exceptional performance...There was lots of good energy on stage that evening.  Bill's guitar picking was especially hot tonight," says Cosmic Hoedown DJ Dave Tilley.  A frisky mix of RCR favorites and recent individual recordings had them dancing in the aisles.  Neither the snow storm nor the single-digit temperature could cool down this hot show on the stage of the Down Home.  If you missed this show, don't make that mistake again.  Check our performance calendar for your next opportunity.  As owner Danny Julian said in his introduction, "We used to call them the best band in the world."  Amen.

We told you it was cold.  Mike's fingers got so chilled at the practice, he was playing the piano in gloves!  Damn, he's good.
The Down Home's bulletin board has a snapshot of the Red Clay Ramblers, possibly back as far as their show that opened the club in 1976.  Click on the pic for a larger view, but we'll try for a better copy next time.
