Major props to Howard Arthur for comin' in to open for Jerry on guitar. One serious player, this cat. Minnesota's loss is our gain.
Props to the ever-fine Glenn Colby for subbing for Gil on trumpet. The Fat City Horns were screamin' tonight!
A great night. The crowd was an enthusiastic crush, and the band blew the walls out.
Above, Lorraine Fidler handling the Fat City Superstore for us. Thank you!
My friend the ace drummer Tony De Augustine (a Lion King sub now, among his many other gigs) came to hang, and was totally blown away, in particular by the new originals he'd not yet heard -- "Love Jungle" and "Indian Summer Day." Tol' ya, man...
Great also to see Bobby Black tonight and Sean Gerrity from MOSAIC (and pop), and our good bro' Ron Camiri from the Lon Bronson Band.

Got this "chain email" from my high school bud Bill, so I'm "passing it along" so I can quit bein' broke:
