end of an era
Well, a musical era ended Wednesday night. The last KTQ open jam night at McReds. I've been playing there almost every week for going on three years, most of the time as the "house" bassist with Kaz, although since my hiatus in August I've been showing up only occasionally to sit in. Luckily the last night was well attended, and a festive affair. And three drum kits on stage! Almost all of the usual suspects were there, and I sat in on guitar, doing three tunes with Cosmo on guitar also, Vic on bass, and Masa on drums. We did the standard fare including Hootchie Cootchie Man (Vic singing), Movin' On (?), and an especially rousing version of Voodoo Chile, the fast funk attack with yours truly doing vocals. And some playing-guitar-with-teeth and behind the back on the final solo. A fitting way to send McReds off into the night. For those that don't know, Wallgreens bought the block up and will be demolishing the whole area, including Chris & Pitts BBQ resturant.
