While the absence of Phil Romeo was felt, host Gabe Esposito rocked the house (in addition to many excellent first-time and veteran Thirsty Soul performers). Here was my (first) contribution. I did end up doing a second set, unrecorded, including a really nice version of Congratulations accompanied by Gabe on bass. I’ll be sure to capture that next time around.
First time messing with my electric guitar in public. I kind like it, and so shall forego my acoustic guitar for the next few times, barring any surprise visits from the piano. Featuring my first performance of The Blue Professor, and other oldies: Redneck Vacation, Congratulations, and Chinese Buffet.
I won’t gush about how awesome Bowie is. This year, I have embraced the “Bowie Week” thing that seems to be picking up steam here in Philly and learned Kooks from the album Hunky Dory. Check it out; great fun!
Though I awkwardly sat on a tall barstool, I’m pleased with this performance. The percussion accompaniment? Meh. 🙂
A return to the old 6-string, as the piano was absent and a drum kit in its place. Featuring Redneck Vacation, Other Half, and Chinese Buffet.
Be sure to check out the Open Mic pregame @rodzroom on Twitter and Instagram between 6 and 7pm ET, where I warm up and make clever small talk.
