Months of fantastic music and more than one hundred killer bands have strutted their stuff on the state-or-the-art outdoor stage at Big Mama’s Karaoke Café, Seymour’s premier music venue, in their bid to become one of two talented groups to win the Battle of the Bands 2007, and compete for a raft of incredible prizes, be seen on Knox Rocks.TV, and launch their rocketship on the way to the stars. But all good things must end, and this weekend marked the final performances before the winners will be chosen.

But the best may have been saved for last, as Rock and Soul band "The Common Folks" brought their smooth groove and funky-fried fretwork to the stage to close the night’s entertainment. With a twin vocal lead courtesy of Courtney Kline and Bradley Hacker, the five-piece broadcast a tasty selection of classic covers founded on the furious bass stylings of Damion Pendegrass and outstanding guitar work of Josh Neeley, while drummer Joe Eskridge floated through the set with perfect aplomb. The tight combo performed their songs in some cases with a higher degree of perfection and soulful fun than the original artists, and never missed a single step in their seventeen song set as they ran a gamut that included Al Green, the Doobie Brothers, and Marvin Gaye.

Bio

Walking through the muddy water thinking of days past. Music on our heart and problems on the mind. Thinking of the future cause life has no rewind. Still we shine. . through the thunderstorms or sleeping upon the cold floor. Music Conquers the night. but these problems. . these Problems swallow the mind but the hand drives the ink, the strings drive the dream and soon that muddy creek water is flowing crystal clean. . . . somebody press PLAY.
