Natural Born Leaders and Demon Waffle at Capone’s in Johnson City, Tennessee

Halloween this year was very enjoyable at Capone’s in Johnson City, Tennessee with performances by Natural Born Leaders and Demon WaffleNatural Born Leaders features Mike Martinez on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, James Eddington on bass and vocals, Ben Survant on saxophone, Kevin Murtha on drums, and Rex Shaffer on lead guitar.  This band from Ashville, North Carolina performed a great mixture of progressive rock, jazz, and funk with a bit a reggae threw in and also performed tracks from their new EP called About Time.  I enjoyed their performance and spending some time talking to them. To finish the night Demon Waffle, a fun, high energy band from Knoxville and Johnson City, Tennessee that blends reggae, rock, punk, soul, and funk took the stage and consists of the lineup of Tyler Parkhill on vocals, Donnie Barnett on guitar, Evan Rice on bass, Andrew Oliver on Sax, Matt Dougherty on drums, Tim Lester on Trombone and Matthew Sykes on trumpet.  They entertained the crowd with tracks from their latest album Drink Your Dinner and many other tunes.  They gave an enjoyable performance which completed the evening.  In closing thank you to the staff of Capone’s for an enjoyable Halloween experience with great food and drink and very friendly staff.
