MR8 singled out in Citizen’s Arena show review

The music blog Barefoot Music News had some kind words to say about Mick Rhodes and the Hard Eight’s recent set at Citizen’s Business Bank Arena: “Surprisingly, a local act from Claremont opened the show. Mick Rhodes and the Hard Eight performed a set of Country Rock originals that kept the early crowd entertained until the main attractions arrived. Songs like “Back To The 909” and “Married Girls” went over well.” Here’s a link to the review: http://barefootmusicnews.com/blog1.php/trio-of-80s-acts-keep
