Mike and I were hanging at the Station House Cafe for a quick bite pre-show and discussing our game plan for the evening. At the end of our meal we chatted with Cheryl, the owner, who asked us where we were headed. “Oh, you must be interviewing the guys who were just here eating, they were Rockabilly.” Another person we knew stated, “Yes, they just drove off in a red Galaxy!”
Ok, so we were in a small town, in a not large restaurant and we missed the “guys from the band” and their cool wheels. Well, it WAS dark and raining…. Anyway, we headed to the station and hooked up with Flash and Jonnie from Blue Diamond Fillups for a really fun show of live music and lively chat about Rockabilly. Minus base and drums these two were able to shake out some great tunes. Flash has a voice made for singing and Jonnie accompanied him nicely on acoustic guitar.
We expect that Smiley’s in Bolinas will be rockin’ when they plug in Friday (January 22nd) for four-hour show just down the road.
We were also able to connect with Dr. BLT for some catching up as he called in (as he has for every single one of our shows) from Bakersfield for an update. We had him request a Dave Howe song from Dave’s CD, A Face For Radio (BLT suggested the title track). Dave is another musician with a great voice who has recently been collaborating with Dr. BLT on some projects.
The play list is short, but sweet. Thanks for listening and let us know if you have any requests!
