Tickets are free, but they do ask for a donation at the door.

 

If anyone would like to go, please let me know today.

Not sure the energy will be the same in studio but in general RSB is not to be missed.

I think it would be kinda fun with Devon in the audience during Cyril's set, and vice versa.

If you don't find boardies for them, I know a few local music fans that would be interested.

Well, that's a mighty long drive to use a hot tub. Besides, my friend is your friend - so Malcolm can get two drinks with one stone.

Sounds like only one. But you know Malcolm so I'm thinking this is yours.

I don't think you need me to get into that hot tub.

I owe Devon a few shots of SoCo from the last time he was at lolwork.  I kinda offended him.  He asked if they were the best band we had at the place and I took a long pause.  :rolling:  He's expecting shots from the last time we spoke over fb.  I'm such an ass.  :lol:

In my defense, NRBQ was there two weeks prior!  That's what I told him after the long pause.  :lol:

Well, that was some good underground fun. What a great crew of people running that party and what a talented and downright friendly band. Thank you Malcolm -- been hooked up with a couple great things this year but this was the best!

 

Couple people were recording amature video so I think it will be on YouTube soon, as well as the pro DVD they were shooting.

I really wished I could have gone.

 

How was the energy?  Was it, as you feared earlier, not so good, or was that not a factor?

 

 

BTW, no thanks needed.  Glad you made it.  You should be on their list now for future gigs.  The people running it seem top notch, and the music they get is fantastic.

 

 

Did Cyril do a solo set also?

 You should be on their list now for future gigs.  

 

That's what I'm afraid of, being tempted to drive out for can't-miss small venue / underground music every other week.

 

 


Drove out from the Berkshires and picked up my buddy. Between generally being negligent about time, a closed road, and not knowing where exactly in the industrial park the studio was, we missed the first tune. Fortunately the locked-door policy wasn't strict and they let us and some others in between songs. Place was setup like a dark Vegas style night club. Lots of people. Getting there early would have given us a table but standing was just fine.

Came in to Mike Zito and Cyril. The owner / cameraman would ask Cyril some questions or to introduce each song. It was good rhythmic stuff and Mike’s playing is exemplary. They did about 3 tunes then took an intermission. After that the full Royal Southern Brotherhood came out.  

 

The energy was great, though certainly not of the same kind as a full show. These guys were all sitting down while playing. It was an intimate setting. There was a director asking questions and putting a pro-video camera in their faces. So no, it wasn’t the off-the-hook energy of the rock-and-roll show I saw before. That is not to say it was bad in any way. They still brought it, just a version that was appropriate for the room.

After, there was an extended Q&A, first from the director and then from the audience. These are some thoughtful and connected guys. Couple of highlights: Zito explained how the RSB came about. He wanted to make it clear that this was not some “boardroom” decision to put this super-group together, it was organic. Asked who their one musical influence was (hard question to narrow to one) Cyril said Art Neville. “Art jumped into the funk with me on his back. No Art, no Cyril.”  Devon just pointed to the tattoo on his arm and said, “That’s Curtiss Mayfield.” ~ Devon also explained what doing this kind of music means to him. He said we all know what crap is out there on the mainstream radio - but that maybe that’s a good thing because what we all enjoy might not be so special if the masses were turned on to it. I agree. Also that if it's a bridge for some younger people to find the great influences of the past then they've "done their jobs."

Talked with the owner, he wants to make this space into The local underground place. You kids that live nearby are really in a lucky position. ~ They are expanding the room next week and putting in a better AC/Fan -- it was hot/stuffy in there.
