Drop Top Cadillacs

Location: R.A. Fountain

From our promo for this concert:

The country music band Drop Top Cadillacs, with Mike Baker singing, makes its Fountain debut on Sunday afternoon in a free concert set to begin at 3 p.m.

Baker, a Wilson native who lives in Black Creek, has performed in Fountain at bluegrass jams and open mics. He sings often at the open jams held weekly at Robbins Music in Wilson and is a frequent guest singer at country music shows throughout the region. 

Baker sings and plays acoustic guitar and has recently assembled this band for gigs such as this one. Performing with him in the Drop Tops will be Glen Speight of the Country Roads band on bass; Johnny Barham of Wendell on steel guitar; Donnie Turner of Wilson on drums; and Mike Jones of Goldsboro on lead guitar. Jones, who also plays with the Southern Star band, has performed on the CMA awards show and with Merle Haggard.

“We’ll play a lot of traditional country music,” said Baker, “and some old time gospel numbers.”
