About 50 bluegrass music lovers crowded into the Sugar & Spice dining room to see Junior Sisk and Rambler’s Choice perform two sets of high powered songs. Songs from the recently released Heartaches and Dreams CD dominated the sets. They covered some country, gospel as well as bluegrass tunes.
HVBA was able to grab them on their way from Ohio to Maine for this enjoyable night. The Sisk schedule is a barnstormer with nine September appearances ending in Kentucky. The band’s road race did not dampen their performance. With unbridled enthusiasm and a knack of kidding each other made this a night to remember. To watch them do the bluegrass dance around the one mic was as much fun as listening to the music.
In our cramped quarters the band was virtually hanging over the tables, so much so, Junior began commenting on the food and great desserts. Sugar & Spice served up some nice vittles that evening and were warm hosts for this event.
We’re all looking to hear good things from Junior Sisk and Rambler’s Choice in the future and wish them Godspeed. We will be happy to grab them again when their tour comes our way.
