Kiwanis Benefit 09

Thanks a million to Paul Jacobs and Mike Cameron for playing at the Kiwanis Benefit. Mike kicked us off with a rousing "Shady Grove". I slowed it down with a bluesy version of Bill Monroe's "Good Woman's Love". Paul and Mike ventured into Jazz territory with Stephan Grapelli's "Minor Swing" while I did my best to keep up. Then we capped it all off with "Whiskey 'Fore Breakfast" double time. Or as Paul would put it "lively". It was sure a lot of fun.

Congratulations to Dappa Smith and Tom Rossiter for putting on a fine show. Some people told me it was the best yet.

We have no actual jam photos for this week. So here's a shot of the old bank in downtown Eatonton just a couple of blocks from the Plaza Arts Center.

Players were: Jack Logan, David Amonette, Oren Siders, Sandy Siders, Dan Kelhoffer, Mike Cameron, Mike Koester, Keith Rowell.

Song List: Amazing Grace, Angel Band, Bury me Beneath the Willow, Colorado Breakdown, Columbus Stockade Blues, Elzic's Farewell, Fireball Mail, Great Speckled Bird, Handsome Molly, I'll Fly Away, Jacky Tar, Jimmy Brown, Move it on Over, Old Home Place, Old Joe Clark, The Other Side of Town, Wabash Cannonball, When the Roses Bloom in Dixieland, Whiskey B'fore Breakfast.

Just as a side note: you can tell from this recording how the gallery's acoustics are inferior to the stage of the main auditorium. This recording was made in the gallery, a room with carpet and upholstered furniture, but still with hard surfaces on the walls and ceiling. Compared to show numbers 18,19, and 20 which were recorded on stage, this one "#21" sound like it was made in a tin can. It's apparently the theater curtains in the auditorium that absorb the echoes, not to mention the great acoustics of the hall it's self.
