Not since The Reverend Horton Heat’s last performance in town, have I seen such a cast of crazy characters assembled in Pensacola, Florida. And I’m not even talking about ON the stage, but OUT in the crowd for the Unknown Hinson concert at Vinyl Music Hall.

Most in the crowd may have come for the comedy, but local group SiriusFace (Brooks Hubbert (vocals/guitar), Dave Easley (pedal steel), Scott George (bass) and Sims Chadwick (drums) laid down the law and let everybody know that this was also going to be a burning night of music.

Following an intense, instrumental finale’ by SiriusFace, the Nightmare Theatre crew came on stage to announce the next Rocky Horror Picture Show Experience at Vinyl.

And finally, the stage was ready for Unknown Hinson. The creation of Stuart Daniel Baker, Unknown Hinson is the kind of magnetic persona that can attract the most diehard of metalheads, country purists, and rock-a-billy rockers.

The man and his band can play. With a heavy dose of musicianship to go along with his more-southern-than-you comedy, every crazy soul in the venue had a hell of a good time.
