With our numbering back on track, we go back to May, 2015, for a special RFC MINI SHOW featuring an acoustic showcase by none other than Johnny Compton.
This edition of The RFC MINI SHOW starred Johnny “Hurricane” Compton, a legend in the Charleston music scene, performing two solo acoustic numbers at The Thirteenth Lane Taproom at the much-mised Dunbar Lanes. Johnny takes on the Marshall Tucker Band classic, “Fire on the Mountain” before debuting the title track of his solo acoustic album, “These Roads.”
The recording session for this show was a tremendous amount of fun. Dunbar Lanes had a really great, intimate performance space and it was a wonderful place to hear live music. Sadly, it is no longer a music venue (or a bowling alley) but the memories are still wonderful.
Mr. Compton, of course, is still gigging all over the Charleston area with a number of bands like Amos Steele, The Cat Daddys and Mother’s Blues, and also does the occasional solo show, which you can read about in PopCult.
