Charlie Daniels Band was packed inside Palomino

Charlie Daniels was a definite rockstar at the Stagecoach festival Saturday.

Daniels kept the crowd waiting for approximately 10 to 15 minutes while his soundman kept checking what seemed to be every instrument under the sun. The crazy thing is the bass player’s sound wasn’t very good and almost overpowered the set.

Nonetheless Daniels came out in a white hat (with a white beard), yellow shirt and blue jeans to a thunderous applause. He loves to shake his fiddle when he performs and carries himself like a star. Naturally, the Palomino tent was sweltering from the bodies packed inside. 

Daniels performed  “The South’s Gonna Do It Again,” The Legend of Wooley Swamp” and other songs and despite his bass player, his voice (and the rest of the band) sounds tremendous.
