The Georgia Fife and Drum band played rousing, good time music. This band tends to favor an earthier drum sound than the firecracker snare beats heard in Mississippi f&d groups such as the Como Drum Band. Every Time I Come Around shares lyrics with You Gotta Quit Kickin' My Dog Around, a tune popularized by fellow Georgians Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers. Also comes with buck dancing!
