The five of us who make up the core of the band--messrs. Marnier, Pockett, Ego, Dandy, and Power--want to shine the light on our front-of-house sound engineer, AC Fader, and our CEO of merchandise, Amy Gold. Their underrated offstage efforts play a critical role in our continual striving to create a showgoer experience that is second-to-none. We'd also like to recognize the killer musicians with whom we have shared the stage this past year. We are proud to raise our (now refilled) glasses with The Rounding Cape Horns, JC "Mr. Casual" Kuhl, Bobby Bravado, Swabby Steve, Admiral Hal F. Power, Guy Centennial, and Tico Rubs! Cheers, y'all! This next round's on us!
Three Sheets to the Wind
SECOND PLACE: Honkytonk Heroes
THIRD PLACE: Rosie Soul and the Rock and Roll Cowboys
They may not have coined the term "yacht rock" which refers to the easy listening hits of the '70s and '80s -- but the leisure- and lady-loving characters in Three Sheets to the Wind are one of the country's best living yacht rock groups. From their swanky sailor's outfits to their oh-so-smooth vocal delivery, Three Sheets stokes the fires with such artists as Loggins and Messina, Hall and Oates and Steely Dan, making the women swoon and the men drink heavily."
