Saturday was an awesome day for a Rock-n-Romp, and the Mid South Maze is one of our favorite places to romp. There's always a ton of stuff for the kids to go along with the rocking-- a really amazing corn maze, a corn cannon shooter, and everyone's fav-- the jumping pillow.
Combine that with three great musical acts and all of you folks who came out, and it was a great Rock-n-Romp!
First up was Chris Milam. This guy had a sweet, smooth voice, and was pretty popular with the ladies.
Next up was The Merry Mobile. Obviously, they haven't come up with an instrument that Paul Taylor can't dominate. We've all seen him rock the bass and the drums in past bands, but here he's playing the guitar like it's what he was meant to play all along. Combine that with his crazy-tight rhythm section and it was a really fresh, rock/jazz/funk explosion.
Last up was The Star Killers, one of the best teen bands we've heard in a long time. These guys take their craft seriously-- awesome songwriting maturity for their age. Loved them.
Thanks to all three acts-- this was really a stellar lineup-- and thanks to the Maze folks for having us. Thanks as always to our two longest sponsors, Central BBQ and Whole Foods. They are both important participants of the Memphis community, and they make our shows a better place to be. Also thanks to our volunteers who help us pull it all off. You guys rule!
