Huckabee Dedicates "Free Bird" To The Granite State

Republican Presidential Candidate and bass player Mike Huckabee and his band, 'Capital Offense,' performed a medley of classic rock and roll songs during a Support the Troops rally in Nashua and at a campaign picnic (as seen in photo) on the grounds of Delta Dental in Concord.

At the Nashua event, he dedicated the song, Free bird, to New Hampshire, the Live Free or Die State. During the concert, he wore on his shirt a button with a photo of a soldier from New Hampshire serving in Iraq. The button had been presented to him by a parent.

At the concert in Concord, he invited Fred Bramate, his NH Campaign Co-chairman, up to the stage. The band performed and Bramate sang the song 'Louie, Louie.' Minutes later, a deluge of rain struck during the performance of the song, Free Bird. The band, playing in the open, did not stop until the song was finished. After that, Huckabee and his band mates scrambled to move their instruments and sound equipment into cases. He then moved to a large tent and shook hands.
Between concerts, he delivered a speech and shook hands at the annual Coalition of New Hampshire Taxpayers picnic in Hopkinton.
