Her: "Want to go to a concert Friday?"

The Wild Feathers I took a chance. I was there and she was right. The Wild Feathers from Nashville, TN put on a show to remember. Their blend of rock and blues was perfectly combined to please the audience. Three different vocalists took turns singing lead in this guitar-heavy band. 

Even the warmup band - country rock group The Heavy Hours - impressed enough that TWF singer/guitarist Ricky Young wore their t-shirt on stage.

The show featured mostly original songs from their five albums, but they mixed in a cover of The Traveling Wilburys' "Handle with Care" and closed with a smooth version of Led Zeppelin's "Hey Hey What Can I Do" and a rousing rendition of The Band's "The Weight" in which they were joined on stage by The Heavy Hours.

The show was excellent in its energy and timing and the audience left with a smile. It was a chance I am glad I took.
