Sebastian Dryer, Woodstock Music Scene - Last Friday I had the pleasure of seeing one of Oxford County's best kept secrets, Nissouri Skydog. A wonderful melting pot of Oxford County musicians that play together at party's, dances, local bars, and stag & doe's, you name it. The band was started in 2008 by Mudcreek Mojo members, and later joined by members of the infamous Movin Groovin Verhoeven. Don't kid yourself, if you haven't seen this band before, your in for a fun and suprising evening.
The band started in with Scuttle Buttin by Stevie Ray Vaughan which was shocking to hear as an introduction, and followed that up with Tightrope, a song I've never heard anyone do well, until now. Then as quickly as the SRV tour started, they moved into some really nice Allman Brothers Band music, One Way Out, Not my Cross to Bear, Melissa, and then on to some Jimi Hendrix. Why haven't I heard of this band before ?
The entire night was filled with great music, the Stones, Neil Young, and even some Sabbath, but what really set this band apart from the others was the level of fun these guy's had. There was no stage theatrics, check your attitude at the door ! They really set the tone for a good night of music and fun, the way it used to be when music was killer. At the end of it all, I couldn't wait to meet them, and promised I'd write something for them in the Scene. Thanks for a great night of music guy's !
