I saw this band last weekend at a Fundraising Benefit Concert for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. So we "bundled" that together with a Comp room at Horseshoe Cleveland, and free buffets using our Total Rewards points.

I knew 3 of their songs:

- Cisco Kid ...was a Friend of Mine

- Low Rider (I always thought that was by ZZ Top, but nope)

- Why Can't We be Friends ?

.....This last one seems a little out of character for them. I think it sounds very much like a Top 40 Pop Song.

WAR


We had general admission tix, but got great seats up close to the stage on a very low balcony. The lead singer was the last remaining original member, but the rest of the musicians were also very good, with a special shout out to the sax player and the guy blowin' the harmonica.

Saw them around 10 years ago. Great group. Always liked them, as has my wife also.
DO NOT blindly accept what has been spoken. DO NOT blindly accept what has been written. Think. Assess. Lead. DO NOT blindly follow.
