Little Diesel Photo by Ed Speas L to R: PH, Bob Northcott, Will Rigby, Phil Thomas, Tommy Eshelman Sorry, I got sorta behind here. Gigs, gigs, gigs! Let me start by saying all of the shows over the past couple of weeks have been just wonderful, reaffirming for my return to music. Hell, I nearly feel professional, even! 1. The Well Respected Men - The Garage, Winston-Salem - June 25 The Well Respected Men Photo by Laura Hart L-R: PH, Glenn Jones, Jeff Hart, Andrew Snee The mighty Kinks kover band opened the Near Strangers' album release party at Winston-Salem's Garage, a club that's defied the odds by staying open for years in a town that doesn't make that an easy thing to do, for some reason. The Well Respected Men played Kinks favorites for an hour to an appreciative crowd, including some who decided they'd dance, which is always gratifying. The celebrants' band, fronted by Lee and Susan Terry, sounded excellent, what little I could stay for.
