End of the Night Jam at The Heartland Cafe

4 Aug

logoA couple Decembers back we were doing a show at The Heartland Cafe on Chicago’s North Side. Our friend Rudy Negrete stopped by with his Strat and sat in. Another friend, Josh Davis, happened to be down from Bloomington, with his his harps, and joined us, too. We played everything we all knew together, but didn’t want to stop. So we played “Kansas City”, which we were pretty sure we could fake. Turned out to be a nice end for the night.

Josh pretty much stole the show on it, but Alpha was having a lot of fun on the drums, too. Dorothy and Rudy were both zeroed in on the groove like snipers on a target. I’m mostly off camera, but maybe you can tell I was having fun, too: that’s me throwing in the fills on the verses.

Another night at The Heartland

Mucho Shakin” @ Glenwood Art Fest

6 Jul


VLUU L100, M100  / Samsung L100, M100I’m uploading video of us doing the above tune at Glenwood Arts Fest. That afternoon was pretty joyous for us, a family affair: That’s me on guitar, my wife Dorothy on bass, our son Paul on drums, and our good friend Josh Davis on harp.

A friend of ours caught this on his camera, and the sound came out nice, but the picture gets a little weird sometimes. Still, I think you’ll get a good idea–a little pixalated–of the performance.

The Glenwood Arts Fest, held every August in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood, is a good one. I recommend it. The atmosphere is urban mellow, and there is actual art on display there.

So here’s that video:
