I did this show a couple of years ago, so when you hear me say it is America's 236th Birthday, substitute 238th- on the day the Declaration Of Independence (my favorite document ever!) was approved and ratified.
Older than me, but I'm pretty damned independent too!
I had long had this idea for an opening set for a 4th Of July show, and I finally remembered to do it!
As you well know, it was July 4, 1776 when we declared our Independence from Great Britain.
Much had taken place here in the Colonies since the end of the French & Indian War, leading up to this courageous breakup with the then world's strongest power, England.
So naturally I will start off with a British band, lol!
All kidding aside, the opener was irresistible.
From Rock to Folk to Soul and things in between, it's Music about Revolution and the Aftermath, in this opening Chapter for Independence Day.
Listen to the words, think, and enjoy!
