tommy allsup & kevin montgomery concert

a couple of weeks ago, i was able to experience a little piece of heaven. you can't beat sitting under the stars at artemis apartments near stavros beach here in crete, while listening to...get this...some beautiful TEXAS music. yay! :) we were priveleged to hear the legendary tommy allsup (he's played with buddy holly, waylon jennings, and bob willis' texas playboys, just to name a few), and kevin montgomery who is also very talented with a great voice! kevin's dad, bob montgomery was a songwriter and best friend of buddy holly. the drummer (in the background on the right) is dale dorman who's played with brooks and dunn.

definitely one of my favorite evenings in crete so far; and to top it off, my husband finally agreed to two-step with me...TWICE!! :) with only 75 or so people there, it was an up close and personal concert. tommy told the story of when he was asked to play with buddy: (click on small > on the bottom left-hand side to play)

i so LOVE this pic! tommy's greek friend took it while smoking a cigarette!!

i asked tommy what his favorite texas song was and he played bob willis' "rose of san antone." here's a sample of that performance:

everyone rockin' out to peggy sue

last but not least, tommy jammed to willis'
"right or wrong"
