Features

Roger Miller. On the border of 60's pop and country, he had quite a few hits. A little less honky-tonk than I usually play, but variety is the spice of life.

Big Ray and the Futuras. A great surf band from Boston, they were active in the late 1990's and early 2000's. Big Ray has now moved to Decatur, GA, and put on a spectacular show at the Clarkston Surf Festival last week.
