Birdlegg @ Dotha's Juke Joint

|It was a wild night in Oakland on Saturday. I went to Dotha's Juke Joint and caught Birdlegg with Steve Freund and a new rhythm section that was nothing short of excellent. Birdlegg was at the top of his game last night. The man is an old school entertainer.

There was a 26 year old female saxophone player in the house. She played most of the second set. Alvon dropped by for a bit and played three or four tunes. Little Willie John Jr was celebrating his birthday. He sang three or four tunes including a Johnny Taylor and ZZ Hill tune. Tia Carroll also sang a couple of numbers. She's a fabulous singer.

There were a few more performers in the audience, but I was dead tired and needed to get home. For those in attendance, it was a great time. For those that weren't there, you missed a great show!
