James Mattingly (lead singer and songwriter) has finally agreed to join the others for this benefit for the troops. Mattingly is record producer in [...]
Keep getting reports from around town that the SF committee gang and their friends are still upset about Hawkshaw Music Fest. Places like the bar @ Jackson's, Hub Stacey's and Fish House.
