The smooth tones and harmonies of the Cactus Blossoms began the evening, as the brothers filled the air with country music. The Tillers, a Cincinnati, Ohio based bluegrass band, incorporated many influences into their sound and set the stage perfectly for Pokey to take over.
The crowd was ready, and so was the band, as Pokey's crew took to the stage. The hybrid audience of young and old shared the commonality of being there to witness a great, St. Louis based performer. The group played some of their favorites, mixing in some songs from their new recording, and even a few holiday tunes to remind us "tis’ the season."
