Balt-Country --- Guest Starring...

Got a chance to see June Star, Caleb Stine & The Brakemen & Among Wolves at the 8x10 last Thursday and each band was on top of their game. And 3 Baltimore bands is a good time in of itself, but there were extras to keep everyone inticed.
June Star's Andrew Grimm never disappoints with the witty banter, but Caleb Stine was a draw for me, because I had never gotten to see him live! Caleb has a way of connecting with his audience that works so well in an intimate club.
Along with his tight group The Brakemen, Caleb had along pedal steel player Dave Hadley. Dave can be regularly seen with Shane Gamble, but MAN, was he an incredible addition!

Opening up the show was Among Wolves, headed by lead guitarists and vocalists
Billy Tiedeken and David Godman. The guys have a rotating cast of characters that play on drums, bass, organ and more. But this past week they also had a little vocal backing from
Kelly Grochmal, a tiny woman with a VERY big voice! With her lead Among Wolves took on "These Boots Are Made For Walkin"and I have to say Kelly was even better than
Nancy Sinatra.

Have you caught any fun and surprising shows around town? Love to hear about your experience!
