#3 in my Top 10 Favorite Opening Acts series takes us to Baltimore, home of funk-rock band All Mighty Senators, without a doubt the most entertaining opening act I've ever seen. Led by vocalist/stand up drummer Landis Expandis (he's also an artist,) All Mighty Senators formed in the 1990's. I saw All Mighty Senators in 2003, opening for Pretenders at the Paramount Theater in Denver. As I said, they are the most entertaining opening act I've seen. Landis Expandis, in a pink pimp suit, leading a tight, energetic funk-rock outfit (guitarist Warren Boes was in particular a highlight, and quickly became a favorite,) with humorous, sometimes bizarre lyrics that perfectly fit the band's stage show. And, as usually happens at theater-sized shows, we were able to meet and speak with them after their set. Nice guy's, one and all.

I probably would never have heard of them if Chrissie hadn't brought them on tour. I'm glad she did. Spoiler alert: the final two also opened for Pretenders.
