Always a pleasure to watch you guys.
Thanks guys! Haven't posted in a while. The view from the stage was just so cool. I love it when the joint is jumping. It seemed nobody was missing my rhythm guitar part so I shot this video.
This is a new tune we trying out... I tossed the phone to the sound guy instead of concentrating on the intro... I'm using a MXR Auto -Q for the guitar sound and the Roland GR-20 for the Glockenspiel sound. Tony is also doubling the part with a distorted sound across the stage...
Pardon my ignorance, but who is this guy? I'm intrigued by this photo and want to see what else he gets up to.
Wow! That's the MightyMighty Ernie Isley of the Isley Brothers. A bit of a legend in his own right...
One of my first guitar heroes...
"Redbone". Would have been nice if the MD had let you REALLY take that track to newer heights....bringing it all back to the groove. Nice EG!
Good stuff. I missed out on a lot of Soul groups. I know the Isleys are heavy hitters there but just haven't heard much.
We did that in rehearsal a few times.... I think I'm the MD of the band these days. It's our second time playing it live and I may take a more " Funkadelic " approach as we settle in to the tune. We actually brought it back to the groove in rehearsals then changed it .... we'll get it straightened out as we go along....
They all have moments of brilliance but side 2 of the album "Go For Your Guns" from 1977 is just as good as any hyped up Strat post Hendrix that you can find. They don't credit Roger Mayer for nothing... plus Ronnie Isley is one of the classic lead vocalist of all time.
Sounding good Norm! Always good stuff cookin' in Gumbo Land
That is seriously impressive. You have a really tight band, but also great guitar work.
Thanks Matt! Always cool when the Jersey Devil Approves!!!
Simon! Thanks so much! We try our best...
Please wondered, when you have a chance could you PM me details on whether daughter Daisy sells custom artwork?
Had a blast at the House of Blues last night!
Let me see if I can post dat! The Sugarcane Festival...last night... rough around the edges but no excuses it is what it is ....
Those edges sounded pretty smooth to me as well as to all those people in the audience grooving to your playing. I live me R&B band fantasies through you Gumbo!
Great stuff EG, you're always fun to watch play! Love this stuff.
Really nice soloing on don't stop believing too, sheesh you guys rocked it!
Well somebody has to "Keep the Funk Alive"! It's tunes that I've posted before. Perhaps they are old hat to you guys? But they never really are the same... something is always different.
Thanks Ciggy! Those almost never get called together but it was a short 90min. set so they were lumped together. Which was difficult to gather and focus (and tune up) from the Zen (my mind goes blank except for the key I'm in) of Purple Rain to not guite nailing the intro to Don't Stop Believing. But there's no do overs live ..( well there is but let's not go there )... Thanks Ciggy ... Yeah we can still gather a head of steam and pump out a tune!
Not for me. I'm still new to the funk genre so I've been enjoying the hell out of learning that stuff. You're right. You can approach the rhythms a little differently each time and keep it fresh. Thanks for your continued inspiration.
