The David Mayfield Parade

One of my favorite bands (The Avett Brothers) had a show in Temecula last Saturday.  We made a bit of an adventure of the trip, heading down from LA in time to get some wine tasting in (+1 brewery).  One of the big surprises was the opening act for The Avett’s, The David Mayfield Parade.

The official video gives you a little idea of his showmanship…live…he was a blast.  For some of my friends, imagine me on stage dancing (say from 80s night heyday or the Goodfoot) playing and singing bluegrass.  Or for those that don’t know me well, just imagine Zach Galifianakis playing and singing bluegrass.
(Oh and yes, he’s Jessica Lea Mayfield’s older brother)
