G. Love and Special Sauce
Linda and I went to see G. Love and Special Sauce at the Ventura Theatre last night and it was very, very good. This young fellow is loaded with talent, as is the band. What an interesting combination of styles! Dobro-style guitar (G Love plays a little like Robbie Robertson), harmonica, upright bass, two! drummers, keyboards, all in service of blues, rap, jazz, southern rock, you name it. The drummers were great fun to watch, and they seemed to be sharing some kind of inside joke. My favorite was the bass player. Just a great time all around.
