Sawyer Brown, Watertown, SD

By my estimate, around 10,000 people enjoyed Sawyer Brown's free concert at the Redlin Art Center Celebration in Watertown, South Dakota on August 8, 2009.

Threatening skies created an unusually cool evening for the time of year, but the rains held off and a beautiful sunset snuck under the clouds as the band played.

Home state hero and lead guitarist Shayne Hill of Spearfish, SD propelled the pop-country legends through their biggest hits and some surprises including the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" and the Steve Miller Band's "Keep On Rockin' Me Baby."

Lead vocalist Mark Miller demonstrated some fancy dance moves during "The Race."

Saywer Brown's rhythm section is Jim Scholten on bass and Joe Smyth on drums.
