The Decoys are Scott Boyer and Kelvin Holly on guitar, David Hood on
bass, Mike Dillon on drums and N.C. Thurmon on keys. They opened the
Muscle Shoals Music Past and Present show and backed up Mike Farris
from the Screaming Cheetah Wheelies and Russell Smith of the Amazing
Mike Farris offered some spiritual soul and a nice cover of "I'll Take You There," which was recorded in Muscle Shoals. David Hood played bass on the original track. Mike said he only met the Decoys about 15 minutes before the show and they did pretty good for having no rehearsals.
Russell Smith has played with the Decoys plenty of times before. He opened with "I Want My Country Back," which he called his "protest song," then as he got read for the next song, he noticed the drummer was missing. Smith began an impromptu song that continued until Dillon returned to the kit. You can hear Mike's excuse at the end of the next song. It was pretty good songwriting on the fly. Smith closed his set with the Rhythm Aces' hit "Third Rate Romance."
Recording this show was a challenge.
After setting up and letting Bryan, a taper from Manchester, clamp to my stand, I thought I was ready to go. Everything was fine until the intro and I didn't have any levels. Nothing. Apparently the UA-5 battery that I "thought" was charged, was not. I had to swap one and missed a minute or so of the opening track. The sound varied from good to really bassy. I noticed my levels were fine, they were too high, then too low. Some tracks here are a little pushed, it seems, but overall, it came out pretty good.
This was a free show sponsored by the City of Muscle Shoals and other assorted sponsors. It was really a scaled down version of the city's Muscle Shoals Music CityFest, a two day festival that had been canceled when the economy tanked.
The show also featured Lenny LeBlanc, Dylan LeBlanc, The Civil Wars (John Paul White and Joy Williams) and Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit. The Isbell and LeBlanc sets are on etree.org.
