Several weeks ago we were thoroughly entertained by The Rick Bruner Band at the Classic Bean in Topeka. It was the highly anticipated debut of Rick's new cigar box guitars made by Wichita Sam! Yes, we're talking an electric guitar made from a cigar box! Talk about havin' a bad case of the blues... oh my we are talkin' a truckload of the blues!
The neck of this one is an old broomstick cut in half. Here's a picture of the entire thing with Rick fixin' to make it cry for mercy! Have Mercy Rick!!!
Here's a different one...
...also with AMAZING sound in the capable hands of Mr. Rick Bruner! Mercy Mercy!!!
The whole show was great, non-stop, rollicking fun. Here's a rather bad picture of the boys in the band...
Rick teasing the Stratocaster.....
and Rick's great soulful singing...(I think he's singing the GWB song at my request...)
Love those boots and the playlist!
And for one night only... as a special bonus attraction.....tah dah!!! Back-up singers!!!
These little girls were ready to step in and be back-up singers if needed. Just about as cute as it gets!!!
Thanks Rick and The Rick Bruner Band for a great evening! Hope it happens again soon! Mercy!!!
