Rocky Benton and Dicky Neely at
11th Annual Ain't Nothin' But The Blues,
Fall Back Festival,
October 29, 2005.

This year's event was a great success with good weather and a large turnout. Rocky Benton and Dicky Neely closed out the show with a dual harmonica rendition of John Mayall's "Room To Move."
The annual fall event was held, as usual, in the courtyard between Pelicans Landing restaurant and the shops of the Port A USA center in Port Aransas, Texas.
The Corpus Christi Veterans Band opened the show with big band patriotic music and swing. Guy Leroux and Dicky Neely did a duo while the band set up.
The Dicky Neely Blues Band played traditional and Chicago style blues. Rocky Benton performed the last set. Rocky is the Main Man! His singing and harmonica playing make Rocky one of the best known and most respected performers in South Texas.
H.B. "Hollywood Bob" Hinckley was the drummer and performed some soulful vocals. Roy Cox held down the bass.
