FULL HAND . . .I wasn't familiar with this band before the concert in the park, although I think the park was full of their fans.  This is no ordinary cover band.  I heard from some of their fans in the park that they sing and play country and rock favorites.  Tonight it was primarily country tunes.

     Full Hand is a five person band: Becki Dewitt-White on vocals, Tifanni Saltkill on vocals & guitar, Blake Saltkill on guitar, Cori Thrower on drums, and Tim Cornelius on bass guitar.  With occasional cameo appearances by Becki's dad, Roy Dewitt, who joined in on guitar for a couple of songs and Tiffani and Blake's mom who joined in on one song on harmonica.

     Becki Dewitt-White, the lead singer for the group, did a fantastic job on everything she sang.  I especially liked the Miranda Lambert songs that she sang, "Baggage" and "White Liar".  Becki really shined when she sang these songs.  They're in the perfect key for her voice and she can really belt out the lyrics.  Becki made the songs her own and not mere imitations.  She also sang "Cheater, Cheater" and changed it up with some funny antics as a way to avoid some of the more risque lyrics in the song.  It was really funny.

     Some of the other songs that the group performed were "Mary Jane" (Tom Petty), "Where The Green Grass Grows" (Tim McGraw), "Summer of 69" (Bryan Adams) and a new one by Little Big Town entitled "Pontoon". 

     This band is one to watch.  They kept the audience entertained throughout the evening.  If you get a chance to hear them in person, especially at an event such as this, make sure to check them out, they're a great time.
