Close your eyes and come with me. Feel the vibration of the drums fill the room as the bass from the guitar rolls down our backs and we all sway along, some sing alone, and everyone enjoys themselves. The bartenders are slinging beers, pouring shots, and bracing themselves for the first slow song that will ensure a stampede for seconds and thirds.
