Chief Billy and Bob Paul are hosting a blues workshop at the Bottlecap on Wednesday evenings. If you’re into playing the blues, show up. You’ll either learn something or teach something!
My apologies to Nick Norman. Somehow our office attached the wrong headline to my review of this talented performer a couple of weeks ago. If you saw Watherwax’s great photo, you knew it was not Barry Cuda. Sorry, Nick. It may have happened again with the date for Jodyrae’s concert. I checked my original. It was right. In the thirteen years I’ve written for KWTN, this has only happened a very few times, so folks, please forgive us.
You can see and hear the fabulous Nathan Whitt Band this weekend at Schooner Wharf . They are on their way to the top. They’ve already been on the charts. They have opened recently for Dave Matthews, Ekoostik Hookah, the Jazz Mandolin Project,Galactic, Antigone Rising, and others. They claim to be a soulful band with a junkyard beat. And Nathan is the son of one of our finest singers and comedians, Clark Whitt. Clark is too busy fishing to perform these days, though he’s still probably writing for comedy acts. The last time I saw him he stopped in the middle of a song and said,”The highway patrol has a new roadside test for marijuana. They have you roll down your window, wave a bag of Doritos under your nose and say, want some?” He went right back into the song as we picked ourselves up off the floor. Talent does run in families.
I goofed badly last week. My beloved friend Jodyrae Campbell-Geckler’s candlelight concert was on Saturday, not Sunday as I reported. I didn’t catch it in time, but thought the other papers would have it right. No other papers bothered to mention it. That’s outrageous. Jodyrae is one or our most talented performers, and it was a benefit. Shame on you Citizen, Solares Hill, et al. And shame on me. There’s no way I would hurt you, girl, you know that!
