This article may have a few more photos in it than usual, because I was there more as a fan there this time, than media. I took some time off to take care of some personal issues, and enjoy a few shows as a fan. I did make some mental notes and observations, but I did not take total notes like I usually do.
I’m going to touch on a few of the songs, but I don’t recall the entire sets of all three acts. Mr. Joshua and I got together a few times this year, under both good and bad circumstances. We been friends a long long time, and we try to hook up two or three times a year as we can.
The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta was a VERY nice venue to go see a show at, and we had a nice little side table to sit at. All of the staff here were so nice to us, and even though I do not drink anymore I found the drink prices quite reasonable.
Tylor And The Train Robbers have actually released a great new album this year, their third release. This Boise based Idaho band is solidifying their position in many different genres of music, with a dynamic stage presence and a united sound as a unit.
Their new album called “Non-Typical Find” was produced by Mr. Cody Braun from Reckless Kelly, and it was an awesome album including the title track song about finding a dead body ( every hunter’s nightmare). He was taking a hike in the woods while hunting, and he found the dead body of a gal who got into a stranger’s corvette.
This band consists of Mr. Tylor Ketchum, his brothers Mr. Jason and Mr. Tommy Bushman and his father-in-law Mr. Johnny “Shoes” Pisano, and I finally got the chance to see them live.
They put on a very exciting and high energy opening set tonight, and I will try my best to see them live again in the future. The next act was a very talented guitarist named Mr. Will Hoge and he also had a new album in 2020 called “Tiny Little Movies”.
There is a lot of talking in his set, and when it gets so political, it tends to make the music less fun to some. I suppose that either way it gets monotonous indeed, on songs like “Still A Southern Man” proclaims his dislike for the confederate flag, while maintaining southern roots. I really do not hold an opinion on the matter my own self, and I can understand the song subject here.
Mr. Willy Braun, Mr. Cody Braun, Mr. Ryan Engleman, Mr. Jay Nazz and finally Mr. Joe Miller make up this Idaho Red Dirt band called Reckless Kelly. This band has contributed a LOT to the local Red Dirt community not only in their own area, but north as well and on into Canada.
Each year the four Braun brothers ( the other two are in Mikey And The Motorcars ) get together and host the popular Red Dirt festival called The Braun Brothers Reunion in Idaho.
I remember them playing many songs off the album Wicked Twisted Road including the song that bears the album name, as well as the ever popular “Seven Nights In Eire”. From The Day album they played the song “Crazy Eddie’s Last Hurrah”.
From the album last year called American Jackpot/ American Girls they played the song called “Tom Was A Friend Of Mine”. They played a really nice set of 14 songs tonight for us, but for me this was just a really nice weekend with an old friend.
One thing I have learned in the last few months is who my friends were. I had to do a lot of soul searching and self care, as well as take care of some of my own family issues before I could step back into the world of my website, and now I am back…and catching back up on more issues!
Thanks for reading everything folks!
