I can’t remember the first moment that I tasted an Oregon Pinot Noir. It was probably around the time I got my first job in Nashville, TN, which coincidentally was the first place I was legally allowed to serve alcohol at a restaurant. Until then I had only waited tables at chain restaurants in dry counties in Arkansas. I remember instantly realizing there was something special about Oregon Pinot Noir—even in the infancy of my beverage career.
St. Paul and the Broken Bones took us to church and brought down the house with their live performance at South on Main last Saturday! Their sound is fresh, yet reflective of the deep tradition of southern soul music born out of places like Muscle Shoals in their home state of Alabama. Here are a few scenes from the show courtesy of the lovely and talented Nancy Steenburgen.
About 150 people braved the evening’s torrential rainstorm to hear a talented group of Arkansas musicians pay tribute to the great Country Music legend, Ray Price. Price passed away in late 2013, but left an imprint on music forever. Led by Little Rock mainstays, The Salty Dogs (plus the furious fiddlin’ of Paul DeWeber and piano accompaniment of Michael Heavner), the event was sponsored by Cosmic Cowboy Studios!
