The Outlaws came to the party in St Augustine, Florida ready to rumble at “The Southern Uprising” Friday night. They led the party off with old favorites like “Hurry Sundown”, “Ghost Riders in The Sky”, “There Goes Another Love Song” and of course, finishing off with “Green Grass and High Tides”.
The Florida “Guitar Army”, originally formed in 1969 played masterfully the entire set. The four guitar players sometimes were in a straight line, other times switching positions. They even paired off in two’s while each guitar soloed. Monte Yoho, the only founding member of the band kept “The Army” in check with a steady Southern Rock-n-Roll tempo on the drums the entire set.
Of the four bands performing at “The Southern Uprising”, there wasn’t a band had more fun than the opening band, The Outlaws. You could see it on their faces, they were having a wonderful time. If you get a chance to catch them in their four remaining dates in Florida. April 4th at the King Center in Melbourne, April 5th at The Ranch Concert Hall in Fort Meyers, April 6th at The Key West Theater in Key West, or The Lyric Theater in Stuart on April 7th , don’t miss their energetic show.
