Comments:

How many times can they have the Marshall Tucker Band play? I love my classic rock, but c’mon.

I only know a couple tunes from Kansas, but I believe I saw the warm up band Spaceland at Savanah’s a couple months back and they were excellent and worth checking out. They have a very heavy U2/Coldplay influence and a very pro sound.

Jimmy Buffet tribute… That sounds fun!

Ed Kowalczak – I saw him last year at Northern Lights. Unfortunately it was kind of a light crowd, but he still gave everything he had and was really great.

How about you... Any comments?
