With RJ on another European and Scandinavian tour, Birdlegg was the host and MC for the evening. The house band was: Steve Gannon (guitar), Bob Welsh (bass) and Hans Bosse (drums). There was a keyboard player present, but I can remember his name. Birdlegg was in fine form. It was great to see and hear Steve Gannon.
Guest group #1: Pork Pie Phillips (vocals), Scott Miller (guitar), Ryan Eric (guitar), Eddie B (bass), E-Rock (drums) and me (harmonica). It's always a good time getting to play with Pork Pie. He's a fine singer and he's always got some cool songs.
Guest group #2: Birdlegg (harp/vocals), Chris Andersen (guitar), Steve Gannon (guitar), Bob Welsh (bass) and Artie Chavez (drums). It was a very cool set which featured some very good slide guitar playing using a slide by Steve Gannon and some very good slide guitar playing without using a slide by Chris Andersen.
Guest group #3: Birdlegg (harp/vocals), Chris Brown (guitar), Russell Barber (guitar), Ray Figueroa (bass) and E-Rock (drums). Chris Brown and Russell Barber played off each other quite nicely. Chris Brown's guitar playing on the Guitar Slim classic, "The Things I Used To Do" was excellent.
Guest group #4: Double G (harp/vocals), Don Yonders (guitar), Tom (from the Buzzy Dupree Band) (guitar), Ray Figueroa (bass) and Dawon (drums). Double G was sounding good. Don Yonder displayed some stinging West Side Chicago-influenced guitar work. Tom played some very tasteful slide.
Final group: Birdlegg (harp/vocals), Chris Andersen (guitar), Steve Gannon (guitar), Bob Welsh (bass) and Hans Bosse (drums). This set was a great way to end the evening.
