Last night I went to go see Melissa Ludwig, higher education writer for the San Antonio Express News and her band Raleigh Maroon. Can I just say WOW was I impressed. And I consider myself a pretty good music connoisseur.
They're a cover band but have many of their own pieces that are quite incredible. Melissa has a set of pipes that just blew me away when they did a rendition of Wild Horses.
Raleigh Maroon plays all over San Antonio, about 3-4 times a week. I caught them at Valintino's di Olmos where they have a steady gig every Friday night for the restaurant crowd.
Here is their rendition of Hotel California which gave me chills.
