"This was the first time me and the MOB had ever played Big Bull Falls Blues Fest. And, to have the priviledge of playin' with two of the all-time great blues cats like Big Bill Engel and Otis McLennon, man oh man! At 280lbs., I was lighter than air! Dr. Smooth back on the drums was havin the time of his life. Duck was thumpin' that bass so hard, the shiny was comin' off the strings! A really big thanks to the Great Northern Blues Society and Lance Shellman for makin' that happen." - Michael "Big Dog" Murphy
