FAHRENHEIT

I dropped down to The Big Apple Lounge at NY/NY on the Strip to listen to Santa Fe's Johnnie Johnson gigging with the excellent band "Fahrenheit." Lighting was weak; I couldn't get many clean shots. More A-List players. Dug it. Check 'em out.

I'll get more info on all the players ASAP. Follow their schedule on their MySpace site, and go hang when you can.

UPDATE...

Farhenheit consists of
  • Joe Burriola, leader, bass, vox
  • Johnny Johnson, guitar vox
  • Rob Garrett, guitar, vox
  • Ryan Rose, drums
  • Zoltan Czanyi, Keyboards
All these cats are fine, fine players. Zoltan (from Europe, and a musical colleague of our own Eugene Balog) is a major league Bad Boy right up there with Ronnie Foster and Renato, etc.

BTW- Fahrenheit is in the market for a new female vocalist. Contact Joe.

THANKS TO KEN WHITE AT THE R-J

I was so covered up the past two days I never got to look at the paper. Ken White of the Las Vegas Review-Journal gave the band a huge write-up in the Friday NEON Section. Thank you SO much, Ken!

Here I am again! This shows you that I read the blog to keep in touch with the band and what is happening with them. Just want to say that for years I was a member of the LVJazz Society and, in fact, that is where I noticed Phil Wigfall from the very beginning. He stood out. He was one of the younger guys and played the standards with his own style and penache. I wish I were in the audience at the library with the other, more senior fans, so I could have witnessed their gradual enjoyment of the outstanding musicianship and contemporary sounds that they were hearing. Most of those people know good music so it was a real learning and exposure experience for them. Wow!
