Southeast Country met up with Southwest Country on Friday night at the Grizzly Rose.
Out of Birmingham, Alabama, Slamabama opened the night and had fans singing along and dancing to solid country hits. They put a southern style on covers of new and older classic country tunes. Slamabama featured Rosanna Juliano on Vocals, Jasper Juliano on Guitar and Vocals, Dennis Gilpatrick on Bass and Vocals, and Alec Garcia on Drums. Slamabama mixed in a couple of their own songs, My Front Door Faces South, and ended their set with their emotional tribute, Water Tower (Gone But Not Forgotten).

Hailing from Austin, Texas, brothers Willy (vocals/guitar) and Cody Braun (vocals/fiddle/mandolin/harmonica) led the band through a set of rocking tunes that turned the Grizzly Rose upside down. Reckless Kelly also had David Abeyta on lead guitar, vocals, Jay “Nazziola” Nazz on drums, and Joe Miller on bass guitar.
