Jam – 2010-06-17 – Carroll’s

Late in the week Thursday night jam meant we were weak from the grind of the week and the lure of the weekend wasn’t enough to excite the jam into overdrive. In addition, we had no guests so we had nothing to play for except ourselves. As I said, we had nothing to play for. Kev, was late as he typically is for a Thursday night jam so Scott played with my iPad art program and created this week’s artwork. Well done.

The music of the night is available from:

    I don’t know, I thought it was suprisingly good ( or at least weird) in spite of that. Hidden talent, ScottyBoy – I have to step-up my game.

    I think we started rough with the Eyes and we seemed to peak at the Tom Thumb Blues which was right on man! By the end of the night it seemed as if Kevin and Scott were running on fumes and we staggered and collapsed just before we reached the 12:00 midnight finish line. Let’s wait for the recording by Rich to be posted because I’m sure there is plenty of good stuff, we had a few longer segments where I am sure there are several tasty nuggets.

    By the way, I stumbled on the video below and got a little envious.

    I thought we played several songs well in the beginning. It was good to play “meaty” tunes like Eyes before we get tired and should try to play more “second set” material early on.

    The later selections were fun but challenging to play, like Doin’ That Rag, and we should work on Easy Wind which is not that challenging and adds to Rich’s Pigpen repetoire.

    While being able to watch the game on the uPas was cool it was distracting. I reminded me of several August West gigs I had in bars in NJ with the TV on over the bar. The crowd would start cheeringnon the middle of a jam. I would try to figure out what they heard and liked only to realize it was because the local team scored a goal. Lessons learned: never book a gig during the Stanley Cup playoffs, and no TV in the studio.

    I agree. It was a rare and ironic event – me & Scotty wanting to watch a basketball game. If you knew the whole history, you would taste the delicious irony.

    I didn’t get the irony until Kevin just mentioned it. Wow!
