  31. I saw Cowboy Mouth in concert in Atlanta a couple of years back and they were amazing. Really down to earth band, we even got photos with them out in the lobby. A band with a drummer for the singer is really something to see. I would imagine it takes at least 3 times the energy of just doing one of the jobs.
