    they come near you, go see. Cowboy Mouth. After Western Illinois I went to LSU. This band, and they were called Dash Rip Rock before changing their name to Cowboy Mouth.

    They often played in an alley outside of the Chimes (a well know Baton Rouge bar) for free. Years later they played at the 930 club in DC and I took my co-workers to see them. They brought the house down. Read the comments from the above video. They might be the best live band to see today, and I know that is a very bold claim. But I stand by it.

    A few years ago they were the second to last band to close Jazz Fest. More than 220,000 folks. As loud as anything I've ever heard.

    My brother was with me only to see Dave Matthews. They gave Dave their intro, and I like many left after they played walking away.

    I found a small gospel choir and danced until it hurt :). Congo line might have been formed ....
