Tonight we are again blessed to have two of Minnesota's finest, Prince alumni and musical eminences "St. Paul" Peterson (below, right) and Jason Peterson DeLaire (on the left) joining Santa Fe and The Fat City Horns onstage for a reprise of last March's major throwdown.
Ya gotta be there. Music starts at 10:15 p.m. Here's an mp3 sample of Paul's incredible work, "Judgment Day." Yeah, man, yikes...
HOLIDAY UPDATE from ROBERT CONTI, HoHoHo... (Shockwave-Flash application)
POST GIG REPORT
OK, that was awesome. Good crowd tonight. Thanks to everyone for coming out. Band was way ramped up tonight. You can always tell when it's guest artist night, there's a little extra ooomph in the funk. Thank you Paul And Jason for coming again to hang and play (what great people these cats are, killer talent aside). And, thanks again to 97.1's Ric Gould for his enthusiastic support, we really appreciate it. Ric came down to introduce the band tonight, very nice of him. The set started off again with the Fat City Horns holiday music arrangement, a great piece of work (arrangement by the venerable Lennie Niehaus, orchestration for Fat City Horns instrumentation by Nathan Tanouye). Gotta also give major props to Kevin Stout for subbing so fine on trombone tonight for Nathan.
Quickly, before I crash, some pics, culled in chronological order from the entire shoot of 74.
OK, go to Paul's and Jason's websites (links up above in this post), go to CD Baby. Buy their music. Support the work of these fine artists. UPDATE, below, a couple of Dave Siefkes' pics from last night. Thanks, bro'.
Tonight, 7 - 9 p.m. at reJAVAnate (3300 E. Flamingo #23, at Pecos), Mundo Juillerat's excellent Hot Club of Las Vegas will be performing along with guests Walt Blanton on coronet, Chuck Cushionary on violin, and Gabriel Santana Falcon on percussion. Check it out.
Tonight at 9 p.m. Loni Clark again appears at Cedar's Mediterranean Grill, Durango at Twain, with jazz drummer husband Eugene Balog. Players are encouraged to bring your axes and sit in and jam. Click here for my prior post in early November about Loni and Eugene.
