Tonight, the bands sought to be one with the Beach Boys. They became appendages of the Beach Boys, fingers, toes and instruments with minds of their own.

Leslie and the Badgers play in a style more retro than vintage country but nevertheless unique. With their multi-talented instrumentalist stage show, like a gypsy caravan picking up musicians and fans along the way (at least more since I had last seen the group), the band plays its well crafted melodic lines in particular with sweeping violin, slide pedal steel guitar and lyrics such as “When you say I miss you day and night / with love brighter than the ballpark lights / I’m a boat lost at sea siding on the shore / say you miss me once more” which are real enough to steal one’s heart away.

One’s favorite Beatle says a lot about a person. John fans are intellectuals, Paul represents the beautiful people, Ringo lovers go with the flow, and those who favor George lean toward the mystic and spiritual. An ardent Beatles buff and devout Hari fan, I have found these Beatle-based characterizations to be remarkably accurate, and the audience and performers at the Tribute to George Harrison at Spaceland Sept. 12 proved no exceptions.
