Big Sandy Idol “House Band”
Almost everyone that comes to the MAC if it’s for The Big Sandy Idol or The Kentucky Opry or various other events only see the stage from the seats. The lighting is always great, the sound is top notch and that house band… well those players are special. Every time I travel and have legitimate conversations with other musicians they always say the same thing. “Man you guys in Eastern Kentucky have some awesome musicians..” and honestly I totally agree. I’ve been all over the country in some musical capacity or another and I never see a gathering of above bar players like i do in Eastern Kentucky.
Last month I popped in during The Big Sandy Idol and instead of taking the proverbial “crowd” shot or center stage singer shot I opted to get some band shots and I even sneaked back stage and grabbed a few candids of the house band. Top notch Kentucky musicians doing what they love and doing it great. Hope you enjoy.
