Larry Jack’s Magical Music Tour 8/21/14 – 8/27/14

Hey guys,
Well, I notice that the number of good shows is starting to pick up, I am hoping the few week slowdown is beginning to end (of course, I still made it to 20 last week). There are plenty of good choices this week. While looking at this week’s upcoming shows, I find it kind of odd that many of the shows contain at least one brass instrument.

I plan on starting the weekend with two saxophone funk bands at the Wormhole on Thursday. Friday brings a few choices, R&B/Funk with Ambrose (and one horn) and a ten-piece(!) band at Social Club. Saturday will be a night of too many choices for me. The Jinx has a rockabilly show (with a sax/trombone combo), the Congress Street Social Club band sounded pretty good on YouTube, and Radio Birds at Barrelhouse should be good (they played an acoustic show at River Street during a near-thunderstorm a few weeks ago). But, the all-girl show at Hang Fire will probably win most of my time that night. If you have never seen Rachel Kate or (heaven forbid) Lovely Locks, you should really plan on showing up this week. I hope to see some of you out this week, be sure to say “hello”.
