That's the introduction we heard from the audience for more than ten
years as we followed this band around the country. Cullowhee -- six
of the most talented musicians performing anywhere.|
What's their musical style? You name it. Everything from country
ballads to rock and roll, to parodies, to jazz, to blues, to reggae, to
dixieland and back again. The best part? Just about everything you
hear on stage was written by these guys. And how many six-piece
bands do you hear with five lead singers?
Cullowhee has a tremendous and loyal group of fans. Louisville,
Kentucky, in particular, took Cullowhee to their hearts; they played to
standing room whenever they came to town.
In Atlanta, they held forth mostly from the Steak and Ale in Tucker.
Night after night, weekdays as well as weekends, they packed them in.
Versatility? How about six guys playing twenty+ instruments?!?
And just to show you the kind of people they are, once every month or so
they hosted a free kids show. Kids don't hear much live music (at
least music with words you can understand) and these Saturdays were
Our daughter was introduced to the Band when she was six or seven years
old. She actually had her 10th birthday party in "the pit" at the
Steak and Ale -- and Cullowhee let her write the set list! Amazing!
And when we took the ten little girls home and they told their parents
that they had a wonderful time at Krisytn's birthdaty party because "it
was fun! We went to a bar!"...
Wally White introduced us to Cullowhee. We owe him the deepest thanks
for years of otherwise-missed enjoyment, both of the Cullowhee music
and the friendship of the Band. Thanks, Wally.
