Not enough cake to go around

Last year on this day we feted birthday boy Bobby Bare, one of our favorite country musicians back when country was cool. What we failed to acknowledge at the time is the impressive group with whom Bobby shares this special occasion.  Check out our Birthday Band for April 7, and be sure to hoist a glass in their honor this evening:
