This Week - Part Two

Saturday night, the family and I caught a very non-Blues related act at the Alameda County Fair. Former American Idol contestant, Diana DeGarmo was performing. She put on a pretty good show. Her dancers were a little on the hokey side, but it was fun. She's a cute kid with a ton of energy and an amazing voice.

Sunday afternoon, I went to the blues jam at The Bistro in Hayward hosted by The Phantoms Of The Barrelhouse. The band consisted of:
  • Barrelhouse Solly - guitar/harp
  • Phil Harmonica - harp
  • Scott Miller - guitar
  • bassist Vic Vicena and
  • Kenny Gross on drums

There were quite a few people stopping by to sit in including: Greg Greenspan, Dave Walker, Jersey Jim Nestor from One More Mile,, Don Yonder, James "Loose" Reed, Linda Martinez and myself. It was a great time and it is definitely worth checking out on the first Sunday of every month.
