|SASS at STONEGATE by J A Rose-Bartlett cc|
EVERYWHERE... I have seen folks telling their favorite story about King, and doing his tunes, trying to comfort themselves somehow and remember truly a legend, King inspired and influenced all of 'us' musicians, may I be so BOLD as to include myself in that amazing group of folks .I'll find more about King. O.K?
Well, locally, SASS has been 'sassy', of course...with a name like that how could they be any other way?..they .played last night, Friday, May 15th at THE STONEGATE on South Tacoma Way....5419 South Tacoma Way that is AND, they play there again tonight....Saturday, May 16th, it all starts atb 9 pm....I had some really fine food last night at the Stonegate...while, I was trying to learn my iPad camera and enhoying the music [please, see the photo above...blurry but pretty...'huh?...that's STEVE MERRIAM on the left, SHELLY ELY in the middle my BARTLETT is behind Shelly and ANDRE THOMAS is behind Merriam somewhere. Jan].
There was some great music last night....BOBBY HOFFMAN/drums/vocald from the 'Soul Spiderz Jam' came in and sang some cool tunes, of course a BB KING tune was amoung them....AND, a duet with Shelly....WOW. ANDREA MILLER/vocals dropped by and was beautiful, of course. STEVE COX/keys/drums, sat in for a few., he was recording down the street...maybe for HEATHER JONES AND THE GROOVE MASTERS at DAWSON's just down the street.....I saw JEFF HAYES/drums peek in the window and wave....HEATHER/vocals and DONNY S. JONES//guitar/vocalss were with him..
So, I'll see everyone tonight....same place , same time. Jan
