With things starting to open up a bit now, I thought it was time to open up a new gigs thread.
So, I’ll get the ball rolling. Last night (Wednesday) I went to the Jamm in Brixton, the spiritual home of the Alabama 3, to see the band on the last night of their residency there. My charges Ese and Sheena were there in their now-permanant capacity as singers (they will be touring with the A3 next year).
A great show, extremely hot, almost two hours long, with plenty of old favourites but a big emphasis on the new album, which is terific. As well as the Vooduu Sistaz and Rob/Larry and the core band, there were guest appearances by Rev Be Atwell and Aurora Dawn, and debuts for new bassist Funky Al Ashton and Peter Ginger Baker (the latter just a kid, but a great drummer). Went to bed at 7 this morning!
