Sweetkisses, who had not played in about 4 years, would be making their grand return to the stage at the BackBooth in downtown Orlando. I got to the bar at the end of Bartender Brian's set & hung out waiting for the show. They did not disappoint, opening up with Mountains of California & blasting through an old favorites set, including a sing along of Can't Get Lucky & a cover of Whiskeytown's 16 Days which was a staple of their live shows in the past. I think there was only one new song that they unveiled on Friday & the 40 minute set was loud & tight for a band that hadn't played in many years.
So you know, they are playing another show over at the BackBooth on December 10th, so if you want to hear some rock & roll & have a good time go on down & catch The Sweetkisses.
As a quick aside (time to get to work) I walked across the street after the Sweetkisses show as someone in the bar had told me that Thomas Wynn & The Believers were playing (And no cover charge) at Tanquerays. I stuck around for a while & listened. What I heard was very soulful rock & roll played by a strong group of musicians. Thomas is a passionate singer, & the musicians he has around him make this band groove. The place was packed, people were dancing, the harmonica player was just amazing, & I will try to catch these guys again. If you hear about these guys playing around town go downtown, support your city, & check out Thomas Wynn & The Believers.
That's it! Remember that for every song you hear on the radio there are literally hundreds of artists, band, & musicians that are much better than what's on the radio that you will never hear until you get out there & listen.
