Dolly Shine's Final Show in Lubbock,Texas

Thursday, September 15, 2016

You could say the day of the show I was pretty emotional. Well this past month I have been emotional. When your favorite band disbanded its pretty sad. But for me this is more than a band. These guys are my big brothers. If I ever need to talk to anyone they are always there for me. I am so thankful for them. It's funny because I usually don't  go out on Wednesday nights but for theses boys I had to.

At 8:30 pm the front patio was already packed. I got text from the tour manger asking how the crowd was and they got excited about the crowd. I was sitting on the front porch when I saw the guys walking down Buddy Holly. It's kind of a surreal experience to see them walk up to the Blue Light for the last time.

They started the set with Pretty Flowers the first single that they played on the Red Dirt Rebel in Lubbock. The night was more of an acoustic set with Haystack Foster on banjo and mandolin, Jerrod Flusche on guitar, Zack McGinn on lead vocals and guitar, Wes Hall on fiddle, and Dillon Sampson on bass guitar. I felt like when they took the stage the room had a different feeling in the room. It was so awesome to see the crowd sing along to every word.

I feel the whole crowd held onto every word.I do have to admit that I  cried most of the time and my makeup was running half the time. Thank goodness I have good friends who help me lol.

Jerrod was kind enough to sit down and talk about the last show at the Blue Light, "Lubbock is the kind of town that makes me feel more at home in a hotel than I do in my own bedroom at times. If it's a Wednesday or a Saturday y'all always come out and fill the room and treat us like family. The energy and vibe that soaks through the walls of The Blue Light is unmistakably unique and I will never forget the impact it has had on me. Thank you Lubbock. See you soon."

I am so thankful to be apart of the scene and to have developed friendships with these guys! So thankful.

Special thank you to Gerald Salzarulo, the guys in Dolly Shine and the Blue Light.
