Dickey Betts & Great Southern - The Magic Bag - 6/15/2002
Dickey Betts Band was hotter than you know what at the Magic Bag in Ferndale, MI, last Saturday. I took my wife down to the MB and she loved it too. I don't know how many of the attendees saw the 1/2 hour rainbow just before the show but it was big, beautiful and an omen of things to come. Dickey has got one heck of a band, tighter than a 17 year old, uh, well you know what I mean. The sax man gets hotter every time I see the band. Dangerous Dan really blends in well with Dickey, you can tell they are very good friends. Dave Stolz & the 2 boys on percussion really groove and Matt Zaner (hope I got the right name), was great in voice & ticklin' the ivories. High Falls just smoked. (Rogue, your earlier post was right on the money. That was me 10 feet away from you with my EAPFP T-shirt on w/the Red Wings hat). A small club like the MB was an ideal place for a band like this. I'm going to Cleveland 8/17 to see these guys again.
Dickey, I hope & your Boys read these posts cuz' I can tell you that you guys really made the night for Hundreds of Detroiters. Keep on Truckin' Dickey, you've got a heck of a following and it's growing, big time. Peace to everybody!!
