  • Living in a rural area with little to no live music, it is hard to get a fix of something you enjoyed in a major city. Local musicians trying their best to make it and well-known artists jutting across the states are definitely an amenity that should be treasured.

    But we lack in theatrics or magnitude we make up for in spontaneity and intimacy.

    While a Friday night in the metro may include a pregame with some drinks, a trip downtown and an expensive evening at a packed venue, we get to enjoy the comforts of our own living room, great friends and eventually a VIP event on the front deck of the house. The lead guitarist plays all our favorite songs and we get to sing along as if Cameron Crowe was panning the scene waiting for one of us to spoil the fun with an act of impromptu insanity.

    Is it the same as a full band playing to the rise and fall of the crowd? How could it be?

    But where it tops the experience of traveling and dropping convenience fees as you walk though the door is the free ticket to an experience that is relived whenever the stereo sparks an itch to pick up a guitar the next night we all find ourselves in the same room, celebrating fun, friendship and the music that brings us together.
