Hackensaws shake up WVU
This from The Daily Anthenaeum, West Virginia University’s student newspaper, "Rounding out the weekend at 123 Pleasant St., The Hackensaw Boys from Charlottesville, Va., brought in the biggest crowd the venue has seen in weeks. There wasn't a moment when the floor wasn't shaking from dancing feet... the boys used every instrument that is indigenous to the south, including mandolin, fiddle, and stand-up bass. But those weren't the most impressive instruments showcased. That prize belongs to the band's assemblage of coffee cans the percussionist used. He wore about eight to 10 of them around his neck, and each one served a different duty - inspiring a huge amount of foot-stomping that would take the Grand Ole Opry by storm."
