We’re setting up for another show at Second Act in SF, in the Haight. This will be similar to our show there last year, with some new songs and reworked old songs. We’ve redone Texas Stomp, now just Stomp, with a new rhythm backing track and new solos and ensemble bits. Nature Boy is calmed down a little from the last version we did here, and we have new harmonies in The Rose. Should be a good show!
This is a bluesy, down-home tune written by Jody, done this time with a Tele solo from Greg, soulful organ from Nathan, backup vocals from Elissa, and Jody holding the whole thing together on lead vocals and rhythm guitar.
We’ve been doing Autumn Leaves in our live shows for awhile now. This was recorded last fall, with Nathan doubling on piano and violin and Elissa doubling on vocals.
Our show at Second Act in San Francisco went really well. We’ve updated some arrangements (The Affair) and added new songs (Nature Boy). We’ve also added new gear- better sound for both us and the audience. Jack at Second Act did an excellent job of setting things up for us, too, so the near-capacity audience was comfortable and happy. Overall ***** rating!
It’s A Mystery came from an experience Jody had toward the end of her mother’s life; this version is off her 2002 album Fast Horses and Beautiful Women. We do this tune in concert as a duet between Jody on vocals and guitar, and Nathan accompanying her on mandolin.
Our launch party and show went well, though not without a few technical glitches. This was our first show with Nathan’s full drum kit — he really needs to be three people to carry and set up all the instruments he plays.
