How very fitting that “BigDawgers” Dee Rock and Michael Tracy, launched “The Colors I Fly” tour” the same week and in same city as the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
Their first stop was an a counter-DNC event called LibertyRocks at The Big Chill Theater followed up the next night by their Sept. 6 show at River City Bar & Grill in Mooresville, N.C.
Last night, they hit their biggest venue yet at 120 Tavern & Music Hall in Marietta, Ga. which they hoped to pack to the full 1,200 seat capacity with special guests Anne Marie Perry and Green Bracelet, Alan Vaughan, Bill Looman and William Temple.
If the feedback they’ve received from those who attended previous shows is any indication, they will undoubtedly blow their fans (old and new) away with their rocking performances.
I had the privilege of seeing their Mooresville show which included newcomer to BigDawg Music Mafia, Buck Allen, and local favorites, Preacher Stone. I had a big smile on my face from the first note played to the very last and judging by the looks on the faces of everyone else at that venue, there were clearly no liberals in the house.
The lively, rocking music, the pro-American and pro-military messages, and the superb showmanship by these fine culture warriors were true crowd-pleasers. I have no doubt they will be welcomed back any time they are able to get back to N.C.
There is nothing quite like hearing songs performed live that have appeared numerous times in our weekly top ten count down show, Culture Warriors & The Fan Jam on BigDawg Music Radio such as Dee Rock’s “The Colors I Fly” (which the tour was named after) …
… and Michael Tracy’s hauntingly beautiful song, “Raven.”
