Tuesday night sometimes finds us at a local Webster Groves hang out, Highway 61 Roadhouse. We like Tuesday evenings for a couple of reasons: $.61 specials; amazing talent.
The house band starts at 6:30-ish with great music that includes jazz and classic rock. Then open mic night starts and it's always a blast to see who shows up. They jump on the stage and start playing whatever instrument is their specialty. It may be drums, guitar, harmonica . . . you just never know. But the talent is always good.
Last Tuesday we were enjoying dinner with friends, listening to the music when the house band left the stage and some very young kids started getting their guitars out of the cases. One of our friends, said *looks like we're in for a boy band*.
Matt *The Rattlesnake* Lesch
The Meyer Brothers
Aaron Griffin on drums
AND OH MY GOSH
these kids wailed!
Honestly, I wanted to give them a standing ovation.
They ranged in age from 13 to 18
and you would have thought they had been playing music together
for a hundred years.
They had the place rockin'!
for a little taste.
