What to do when vocal issues keep you from singing your own songs? Why you bring in a ringer of course. The much-loved Dick the Bruiser hadn't played a show in quite awhile when they hit upon this brilliant idea. I missed the first installment where Michelle Shinker of Bes Monde took over the mike, but I was there to see Chris Vance do his best in the unenviable position of singing DtB songs with them as his backing band. It was different of course, but also pretty great. And I'll take that over no Dick the Bruiser at all.
