January 14th Palms gig

Gabriel Santana Falcon. Oh, yeah! Man, that shot above really worked. I went in tight at 400 ISO from my seat.

Above, the skyward view from the top east parking deck after your 3rd margarita at Garduno's, LOL.

'nuther great evening in The Lounge at The Palms. Fat City Horns II were blazing. The ensemble section on Dave's "What'cha Gonna Do With Dat Greazy Thing?" was particularly fine. Jamie sang the lead on it tonight, covering for the still outa-town Lenny. Jamie also later blistered the lead vocal on "Brother to Brother."

Tom Delibero, Glenn Colby, Dave Phillipus, Fat City II brass.

Eric Tewalt, Dave Stambaugh, Miguel Rodriguez, Fat City II Reeds. Props to you all, gentlemen.

Below, Dave Richardson was back in the saddle tonight. His intro to "Negrita" brought on wild shouts.

OK, some random shots from the evening...

Great to see Danny and Rosa again!

More thoughts tomorrow, I'm tired. It's almost 4 a.m. Gotta put my podcast together too. Got all the mp3 audio pieces saved. Just need to to lay 'em in and patch up to do the V/O's. Probably have it ready to post for y'all by Wednesday. Already have a cool idea for my second podcast.

Thanks to Jozef Bobula for comin' to the gig tonight. Really nice cat. Great to finally meet you. bro'. Fascinating story. Fine, fine young bassist.
