|"Intimate" doesn't even start to describe it...|
|The Native Howl's "ThrashGrass Rhythm Section"|
|Family Means a Lot to the Ragbirds As Well.|
In a moment of pure spontaneous genius, Erin sat in with the Howl for a tune, and they returned the favor having Alex sit in on the Stealers Wheel classic "Stuck in the Middle with You". It was inspiring to watch them figure each other out and then throw themselves completely into something unfamiliar, yet somehow as comfortable as a favorite tee shirt (probably a tie-dyed tee shirt with this group). All in all, an amazing night of music and fellowship--both on stage and in the audience.. I was so enthralled and enraptured by what was going down that I completely forgot to take notes. Luckily, Gasoline Gypsy and Native Howl Super Fan Jack Hunger posted a great description of the show on his Facebook page. With his permission, I've copied some of it below; as he managed to capture the spirit of the evening better than I ever could have.
Alex, all of us certainly are proud of you. And what was the magic that you made in that room, proves somebody else was looking down, and beaming about his boy, as well.So, if it ever comes up, and someone asks this guy, where were you when you had your greatest live music experience? I'd say, Leonard, Michigan. With The Native Howl, and The Ragbirds. You just can't top that!"
