3 Easy Pieces

This trio is an extension of Thursday’s Freddie & Rod show. With bassist Jeff Johnson energizing the bottom end, they do a mix of classic and modern rock and old and new country hits as well. Between the three of them, they have about 75 years of live performing experience, but they don’t sound old-fashioned. Give them a listen.

A Touch of Gray

“Red” Gray and John Grey (different spellings…and no relation) play a nice laid-back acoustic vibe of just about any genre of music, mostly Southern rock, country and blues.
