The Sucarnochee Revue
Friday Night at the Temple Theatre in Meridian, MS was a great event, The Sucarnochee Revue. Playing to a packed house this is a Grand Ole Opry style show, taped for radio and videoed for release in Australia. This great event is hosted by Jackey Jack White who also performs. The theme this week was the British Invasion complete with The Beatles! RUBBER SOUL headlined the event, a real life Beatle tribute band, down to the amps, guitars, songs, and outfits. Drummer David Zettler was an outright perfect fit for Ringo playing the heck out of the drums, complete with head shaking and perfect timing. Mississippi Chris Sharp performed his brand of folk, jug-time, hillbilly music showcasing banjo, dobro, upright bass, guitar, and some excellent vocals. Caroline Carns was in attendance - real British Royalty from the 60's and 70's music scene in London. Britt Gully and The Water Mocassins brought the house down with the Rolling Stones classic "It's All Over Now" and the Rod Stewert gem "Reason To Believe." Gypsy was fortunate enough to have the Water Mocassins work with him on "The Last Time" and "Gloria" where The Blues Preacher let the Powerslide do the talking! It was a great night and a great event. Special thanks to Steve Gillespie from the Meridian Star - Meridian 360 - for the most excellent plug in the newspaper and his continued support of local music in Meridian - thanks bro!!!
