Andrew's Opening Set (35 megs)
WEGO Set (88 megs)
Here are the recordings from our October 27th makeup show at the Enlighten Cafe! The six-piece orchestra for the evening included TQ Berg (guitar), Woody Frank (guitar and voice), Dennis Jolin (strings and percussion), Jesse Silvertrees (djembe and voice), Evan Strauss (acoustic 5-string bass), and Me Woods (guitar, percussion, and voice). Our barista for the evening, Emma, also joined us briefly with another absolutely stellar scat-vocal performance. Trust me, you'll know it when you hear it!
We were very excited to have both Evan joining us for the first time ever and TQ back after over a year's absence. Of course with two nearly-brand-new players, it took a few minutes to warm up, but I felt right at home after less than 10 minutes or so, and things just kept getting hotter all night. It was one of those shows where it felt like each movement was more free, energetic, and inspired than the last, driving straight through to our 10PM curfew. (Sorry for the large file! During our whole hour-and-20-ish-minute set, I think we only stopped playing once (I've edited a couple of those minutes out of the recording here to retain interest) and never actually left the stage.)
My half-hour opening set of guitar and voice included two firsts: a brand new tune called "I Don't Mind" (for now) and a cover of Alice in Chains' "Would".
