"And it wouldn't be worth it, except for this (concert)."
The Felice Brothers had a rough start to their day; having rolled into St. Louis at 2:30 a.m., they were awakened three hours later to learn that their van had been robbed.
The unkind welcome did nothing to stop the band from putting on a showcase of their talents, trading vocals and working through some deep, deep cuts of their catalog. "Whiskey in My Whiskey" and "Cumberland Gap" soon had the crowd stomping and singing along.
Opening the evening was Robert Ellis, a Nashville-based country songwriter. Accompanied only by guitarist Caleb Caudle, Ellis chatted and joked with the audience while working through most of the songs on his newest album, "The Lights from the Chemical Plant."
