We’re just about to hit the one year mark from the first time the words “Felice Brothers” appeared on this rag.

Judging by the crowd in this video of the tune filmed on Sunday night at the Spiegelworld, this is yet another Felice tune that gets the audience grinning, stomping and most importantly – involved in the music.
