I'm pretty sure DFH pulled out of Tennessee
I think they recently announced they'd be coming back with a limited line up. Don't quote me on that, but I think that's what I remember hearing.
they are back in TN. At least back in Memphis.

i am a fan of chris wallace but not a fan of him right now for the grizz. finding players on bargain contracts is not his strength. however with that being said, we will see what role if any Hollinger still has with the team.

One of memphis' best bands is playing. John Paul Keith and the 1,4,5's. They are on Fat Possum's spinoff label Big Legal Mess records. They took Austin by storm at SXSW a few years back. Think Chuck Berry meets Doug Sahm.
Check them out. Trust me you won't regret it. ...
