Wil Blades Trio

Wil Blades quartet played us some funky jams at cozmic pizza!


Skerik sounded great on sax.  Simon brought the funk with his phat beats, and Andy played some killer solos and provided a skeletal structure for it all to rest on. Wil uses repetition like a master. Songs are over twelve minutes long, but no complaints when they sound solid from start to finish, with dynamics and a perky, zip-in-your-step feel! They call San Francisco ” home” thought the band is from all over! Check out their tour dates if you like jimmy smith, Medeski Martin and Wood, or… Good, jazz influenced funk jam bands! On this tour they played some David Bowie covers such as “Life on Mars.”

House of Tarab

This band plays music from old Egyptian films. They have belly dancers dance live while they perform! They are based in Seattle and their keyboard player plays a synth and makes it sound like a dozen middle eastern instruments.

Erin Mckeown and Natalia Zuckerman


 Fun show with these two folk artists. I prefer Erin playing with a band behind her, her more “rockabilly” material, check out her songs,” we will become like birds” ” white city” ” blackbird” and “le petit mort.”

She played with Natalia Zuckerman backing her up on the lap steel guitar.
