For more on Huckabee the Musician, here’s an e-mail from Byron York:
As a matter of fact, I spent about 45 minutes in a very hot parking lot in Ames listening to Huckabee and his band, Capitol Offense. And they were adequate. They stuck to the old, easy-fit jeans standards — “Born to Be Wild,” “Free Bird,” Brooks & Dunn, etc. I thought the guitar player was little showy and not quite up to trying to channel Stevie Ray Vaughan. The vocals — Huckabee didn’t sing — were spotty. Huckabee’s bass playing was actually pretty solid and was one of the better parts of the band.
