4th St. felt more like Atlanta, GA as Leroy Powell and The Messengers took over. Featuring blazing twin guitar leads they raised the confederate flag over Santa Monica as Leroy brought the party home, and hell-yeah! was the packed sweaty house appreciative!
Duane Betts, son of Dickey Betts took the stage on several numbers, where he shredded solo and joined in with the band, becoming part of a guitar army, jamming triumphantly (see video below). Rumor has it these guys are local, but they sounded pretty southern-fried to me!
Tonight it's Dennis Jones' birthday party! Should be a blast!
