Episode 17: Cracker@Hopmonk
We return this week to the Abbey at the Hopmonk Tavern for what is our first relatively known pro band. Cracker has a number of hits including the well known song called “Low”. The Abbey was totally booked for this one and the dance floor was completely filled. I had to really fight to retain my spot front and center because the Cracker fans were in force. This time around Cracker was just the two front guys; David Lowery and Johnny Hickman That is they tried it without a rhythm section. David hit the guitar with his thumb on every strum which kinda sounded like a bass drum cadence as you’ll hear… I have to admit I was only familiar with their known songs so overall this was a new band for me… not for the audience. Sorry… I could not control the singing around me!
