Eric Tessmer anyone?

HO-LEE-SHIT! Did anyone catch the Eric Tessmer Band at The High Noon last night? I gotta admit- I had never heard these guys before. They are a three piece out of Austin, TX (Eric's originally from Richland Center- or so I was told) who put on one hell of a show- high energy Texas blues. This dude can play some mean guitar and he's backed by a rock-solid rhythm section.

I was there for the opening band, but when I heard these guys open their set with Ledbetter Heights, I knew I was gonna be there all night. They will be back through town on or around August 18th. I highly recommend trying to catch their show.

Yeah, he is from Richland Center ... moved out to Texas several years ago.

I was hoping to make the show last night but I was wiped from the weekend. I've seen him twice, once at BAM Fest and then again at the King Club a few years back. Both times were exceptional. Dude can play, that's for sure. I picked up one of their CDs and it still gets regular play in my rotation.
