Let me begin by giving credit where credit is due. I think all the pictures, save 1, were taken and shared by a wonderful local gal who has the glorious life of taking pictures of bands and maintaining a blog of all the live music she gets to be a part of. She probably sees more bands in a month than our whole combined group sees in a year. So please....give her blog a visit and please tell her thank you: http://ravenmount.blogspot.com/
"One of the underappreciated bands was The Commoners (http://thecommonersmusic.com/), based out of Fort Collins, Colorado. Music of The Commoners is song of soul. When you hear their music, you travel into the culture and majestic imagery of the Irish glass clinking, lively cheeriness and, for an instant, you are transported into a pub in an Irish village in the beautiful green hills of Ireland. Four distinctive individuals – Mouse, lead guitar and vocals, and who has kept the band name alive through various phases of bandmates and sounds, recently acquired Mulligan’s Pub and Sports Club, the new home of The Commoners and Irish music community. Joining Mouse is Jesse Lee, bassist and vocalist who also plays in Greyweather with fellow guitar player Tyler T, whom we have seen also performing solo acts around town, and Nate Brown, kicking in the percussion sealing this gang of four’s Irish funk with a punk-edge."
