Lobo and Sheryl
Townhouse Lounge, 907 Manitou Ave.,
Manitou Springs Fri., Jan. 2 and Sat., Jan. 3 at 9 p.m., No cover 21+ 685-1085
Straddling the two-headed horse of blues and country while riding it straight out of Texas and into Colorado Springs come Lobo Loggins and Sheryl Mayfield. Though their talents have led each of them to substantial brushes with fame -- Lobo had a Top 40 country hit in the early '90s and played with everyone from George Jones and Merle Haggard to Percy Sledge, and Sheryl worked with Michael Martin Murphey -- they've made the Pikes Peak region and the local music scene their home. Loggins' fingers are like little Fred Astaires on the fret board whether he's playing Texas blues or country originals. And Sheryl's got a voice to match his ease. Check them out in Manitou on Friday or Saturday.
