Sunday Sessions - The Little Things ...
Friday night saw me head out for an impromptu night out to see a little local band that's making it big.
We braved the cold and rainy weather and I am so glad we did.
I just wish I could find more of their stuff online because these guys are great.
I wish there was a recording of them doing their cover of King of the Road because, honestly, it was just awesome.
I love a band that can add their own twist to an old song and make it sound great! So I thought I'd post this one up because every time I hear it now - which *ahem* probably won't be too often I expect - it's going to remind me of them (and still of my road trips to Sydney with my family when my stepfather owned that awesome cassette box set of Country and Trucking Favourites. Hmmm, yeah, don't think I'm going to forget that EVER!).
They also did a cover of this one ...
What is going to make this song memorable is watching Mrs M relive her dancing glory as an eight year old and then realising she wasn't the only one!
But for now, you'll have to settle with this video I found of The Lamplights recording my favourite song of the evening.
Go and check out their Myspace page, their Facebook page and/or their website where you can listen to some of their other songs. They even do a kids song.
So good to be able to see and support a great local band!
Even better when that band is so humble and appreciative of the opportunity to just be able to play music. Their music. It's all about the community people (just for you Mrs M).
This band deserves every success!!!
I'm linking up over at Do I Really Wanna Blog? for Thea's Sunday Session ...
