Sammy's Way

A former Gallant Knight singer hopes to conquer downtown with his own club

Between songs, Relford chats up the crowd. "When you here, you happy!" he screams. And he's right. He's part P.T. Barnum, part James Brown. If this were a jungle in Guyana, you'd drink his Kool-Aid -- and it would taste like a porterhouse.

And this is the only rub. When speaking to Relford you can't help but wonder if he's just some cunning snake oil salesman -- an overamped hustler selling you the keys to a house built on quicksand. His animated demeanor and quick hugs for strangers he's just met set a cynic's central nervous system atwitter.

But damn if he doesn't win you over. Is he a con artist? No -- it's just that you've never met anyone this genuine. Mama Amanda don't make no junk.
