Right here in our little neck of the woods, the Sam Morrison band will be playing Rumble and Rock on the Party Block, Center Street Promenade, Friday, May 16 from 7 pm to 10 pm. In addition to their southern fired rock style, Sam Morrison band boasts the finest drummer in the Southland, Bart Robley. Hmm, seems a bit prejudicial there CW....yep. Bart rocks, and he's teaching my drummer-boy teen to rock, and I am really looking forward to this event. Hope to see y'all there. www.myspace.com/thesammorrisonband
