Here's how you do it- get a four-piece band with great harmonies, solid songwriting. Tight musicianship. A willingness to hit every club with a dance floor, and you've got Old Empire. Better yet, you've got your chance to hear them LIVE on WHFR.fm, starting at 5p.m., this Thursday, with none other than Stone Perkins as guest host. So tune in, IF you're prepared to dance.
