"My main memory, besides the intense heat and Unabashedly Getting Naked amidst a crowd of hundreds at the creek, was the beginning of The Hampton Grease Band's set. It was, at that point, a beautiful sunny day; they were brought onto the stage and announced, but Bruce wouldn't let the band start, staring trance-like into the distant sky. After an uncomfortable and confusing few minutes, a large black cloud blocked out the sun, at which point Bruce stepped up to the mic and yelled "EVANS!", beginning the show. My impressionable mind was totally blown." Charles Wolff

Check out The Codetalkers site and the great video done by Little Rock TV show Spotlight ON. The band is hot.
