Sound: The sound was loud, the way a concert should be. Loud, hard, bang your head southern rock. Molly Hatchets two guitarist, Bobby Inram and Dave Hlubeck were awesome; the riffs were played with heavy distortion, and the solos had a semi-high pitched boingy ring to it. Lead singer Phil McCormack sang with the same voice he has had since 1977; that clean cut southern accent backed up with Shawn Beamers kick ass drum lines. // 10

Perfomance: The audience went crazy over Inram and Hlubeck; they strutted around during riffs and got on the edge of the stage and leaned over so the crowd could check out their solos. McCormack was great too; you could tell he was an ex-druggy because of his eyes, the way he widened them whenever he sang a famous part of the song (like "a bup bup bup yeah!" during Encore song 'Flirtin With Disaster'). Even though the rest of the band was awesome, the dude I thought was the greatest was bassist Tim Lindsey. He reminded me of Angus Young the way he headbanged pretty much the whole song and just looked like he was havin' a hell of a time. The two songs that really knocked me out were: Free Bird, as made famous by Lynyrd Skynyrd, the pulled this song of beautifully; Flirtin With Disaster, classic. // 9

Overall Impression: The concert was part of the Molly Hatchet 2007 World Tour, played on Oct. 5 in Savannah, Georgia for the annual 'Oktoberfest', right on River Street. Not many good bands come to Savannah, if even Georgia, but freakin' Molly Hatchet? Good lord. Pretty much all of south Ga was packed around the River Street stage. It was a free show, and would have been worth a hundred bucks, I'd do it a thousand times again. Southern rock fans should definitely try and catch Molly Hatchet. // 10
