East Coast Bays – 2nd September 2011

What a reception. We went down a treat. Neil and I had originally got the gig as a blues act label based on the Stop and Listen album, but what the heck, when we add Bryan we really go to a whole new place, and we are not just talking another suburb in bluesville.

So after five or so song we got Bryan up and let rip, starting with ‘Stuff you gotta watch’ a Muddy Waters tune that is fun to play and pretty catchy.

Then we went swing with Whoa Babe a tune we got off Bob Wills, played a few more and ended with “Luxury Liner 40 tons of steel…”

Had to go back twice to give ’em another.

What a fun place to play, really friendly people, and foot-stomping appreciative.
