Willie Wright “It's Only Life, That's All”

Ransom Note “Russian Blue”
from Big Soul (Tower Groove Records 2013) N L —One of many fine local bands playing the aforementioned Marvin Gaye trubute show and KDHX benefit. Ransom Note will be playing with the Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra at this event. We're talking entertainment value here, folks!
