My turn: Local musicians worth checking out

I watched Captain America last weekend and it was an excellent movie. I may be biased due to the fact I’m a super hero junkie, but the story line was interesting and there was a lot of action with a little bit of romance.

Not to mention, Chris Evans wasn’t at all bad to look at.

I also got to enjoy the musical talents of local musician Travis Erwin on Saturday night at Mark’s Restaurant. The restaurant was packed, so I am apparently not the only fan of Travis’ music and his popularity is well earned. He can really take off on his guitar and he takes his audience right with him.

His biggest fan that night was apparently a little boy about 2 or 3 years old, who danced his heart out. Half the audience ended up watching the little boy instead of Travis for about a 15-minute period. He could head bang with the best of them, that’s for sure.

This Saturday, local band Something Blue will be playing at Mark’s from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. They are a band with a lot of talent and good audience interaction so go check them out.
