12 Jun 15 Mad Dogs and Englishmen Lives in Frisco This Saturday

By Sam Moore

An era of rock music passed when Joe Cocker died last December. But tomorrow night, a group of musicians plan to revive the memories of Joe and his pals when they present “Mad Dogs and Englishmen.”Mad Dogs Keyboards

“Mad Dogs” was a highly popular concert and album, featuring Cocker, Leon Russell and Rita Coolidge, among others.

The revival is a brainchild of Frisco resident Michael Reames. After attending a recent rehearsal, I can say Michael has gathered in a bunch of talent to make this work. I am often leery of anything tribute oriented. But these guys are good.

Mad Dogs HornsThe original “Mad Dogs” featured a choir, a three-piece horn section, and several drummers. The new version has a choir, a five-piece horn section and two drummers. The voices are eerily spot on. The keyboard sounds like Leon Russell has shown up to play. All in all, this promises to be a fun show.

“Mad Dogs” takes place tomorrow, Saturday, 7:30pm, at Wales Manor in Frisco. For ticket information, visit walesmanor.com.
