the return to starlite is complete…

Last night, we played three full big sets to a good sized and appreciative crowd of folks out at starlite in Southbridge — our first time back in over a year to this treasure of a venue.

Pulled out some oldies from the back pages, also covered “Working Class Hero” and “Triad” (as well as a freshly slaughtered version of “Free Bird” for the one guy who HAD to yell for it). It was heartening to have people want to talk about the WORDS OF THE POEMS as well as the music…like, they were, you know, listening…

We even freestyled/improvised two full pieces last night as well.

Here is the thing…We have hours and hours’ worth of original music, poems set to good and intense jazz-funk-punk-rock by incredible musicians. We bring it every time. We walk out on stage with the determination to deliver the goods every time.

As we are sure is true with most local bands, it can get tiring and demoralizing to play to empty rooms and see sales and streams growing only in tiny increments. It feels like giving up is the only course of right action.

But then, you get a night like last night and know there are people out there who like what we do.

We’ll be back at starlite on October 19th, and at our usual Sunday night residency at Nick’s in Worcester the day after tomorrow on September 15th. Hope to see you there….
