That’s a direct quote from our special guest tonight, Tommy Womack, from his song “Alpha Male and The Canine Mystery-Blood,” a seven-minute song with no chorus about a show poster Tommy saw one day. I’ll link the video below. Tommy is coming all the way from Nashville to blow minds in White Cross, North Carolina for twenty minutes tonight.

Watch The Shake Sugaree Americana Residency tonight and every Wednesday 7-10pm Eastern on Facebook, YouTube, or Periscope. When you tip the band, we tip The Shake Sugaree Foundation, supporting special needs education in North Carolina, and we’re on track to raise our goal this year- $5000. FROM A TIN BUCKET IN A ROADHOUSE. If that’s not a miracle, there ain’t no miracles.

We’re excited to play Earl’s in Winston-Salem this weekend, and a venerable house concert in Deep Gap , NC— home of Doc Watson. We don’t play many house concerts these days and we’re looking forward to the intimacy and magic that happens up-close and personal.
