Just back from a weekend trip for a couple of gigs in Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids, Michigan.
In Ann Arbor we played with the STOMP ROCKETS and SCOTT MORGAN/THE SIGHTS at the Blind Pig.
The show was everything we'd hoped it would be -- sound was great, bands were fantastic and the people absolutely unbelievable. I/we cannot thank you all enough for your kindness, good humor and generosity.
The next night in Grand Rapids at the incredible TIP TOP DELUXE we opened for our pal TAV FALCO'S PANTHER BURNS. The night lead off act was a local band called Lazy Genius. Wow! Check them out here: LAZY GENIUS
Again, the venue and staff were incredible, the sound perfect, the crowd super cool and the band people so generous and good natured.
It was 22/23 hours each way there but it was worth every minute of it to have the experience.
Some photos and video coming later but for now -- thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
Yeah the photo is a cliche but when in the Motor City one must make the trip!
With Dan Mulholland of the Stomp Rockets outside the Blind Pig
Winnipeg’s (yes that one in Canada) Mohair Sweets, led by
songmaster/guitarman Colin Bryce offer a super R&B tingling
Introduction collection from the past 4 or so years catalogue, which
hits big across the spectrum of Bluesy-Punky-Rockin’ energy with 5
obscure covers from 7 total tracks with a nice mix of jaunty twangy
Feelgood arrangements and renditions festooned with true grit and
frantic drive, with my own fave being ‘The Green Light’ (a Bryce
classic) with the ever tight band smashing through these fine tunes with
a familiar yet fresh abandon with the slower bluesy workouts matching
the very best out there, for deep heart and soul. A November, UK visit
is planned we hear too, for lovers of the live and direct kind! In the
meantime, this fine collection is available for pre-order very soon! Do
not miss out! Go Here!
