Last night I got to share the stage with some fantastic singers for the Because the Night: Bruce Springsteen by Vagabond Saints Society for the Summer on Trade concert series presented by the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership. The Vagabond Saints Society core band, on this evening, was Doug Davis, Jerry Chapman, Randall Johnson, Bob Stitcher, Aaron Burkey, Neal Goode, Steve Blake and Susan Terry. The guest singers were (scheduled) Patrick Ferguson of Vel Indica, Richard Boyd of Bo Stevens, Clay Howard of Clay Howard, Jeffrey Dean Foster, Darrell Hoots of Knuckles Deep and myself. In addition, a few bonus singers showed up and were invited on stage. Original VSS member and former Winston-Salem resident, Mitchell Snow came on and sang “Adam Raised a Cain” while local business dude (and honorary mayor of the Arts District (my designation)) Brian Cole sang “Glory Days.”
As always it is an honor to share the stage with so much talent and it humbles me to be included in the “Society.” I love these guys and I’d consider them some of my best musical (and in life) buddies. Thank you all and the 2000 or so people that watched for a great night!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
