Which was last night at Nick’s, and which featured a decent crowd, and included a rare poetic cover of Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s “Christ Came Down” backed with bop stylings by O-D and Faro; Faro and Chris doing up “Carol Of the Bells” on bass (all the parts, all the time!); Capri Lanning-Cafaro jumping in on vocals for covers of “Stairway to Heaven” and “Immigrant Song” by audience request (for indeed, we contain multitudes); and Tony doing the usual mix of mayhem and improvised poetry that passes for high art.
Apologies to the couple who wanted us to do “either .38 Special or the Cars.” We’re working on it. Not really, but hey…it’s the thought that counts.
2018 was a good year for the band — a live album out (have you bought or streamed it yet?) and 20+ gigs out there in the books. Here’s to more and more of you seeing them.
Happy holidays to all, and to all a good time…
