If there are any musicians out there, you missed some ridiculous chops a few weeks ago. I’m still recovering! 😉
I was very fortunate to catch Snarky Puppy at the Old Rock House in September. More a fan of the band than the venue. I learned to show up early which we did.
I think if I had too much time (and $$), I’d probably be their roady or live on one of these cruises: http://www.thesmoothjazzcruise.com/2015/Lineup
There are still some kicking artists coming this way that you’ll likely see me at as well.
Let me know if you show up to one!
Stanley Clark – Tue 10/14/14 8PM – The Pageant $25
This guy has been cranking out material since the 70s and helped invent jazz fusion on the bass. Few moments like these happen here in St. Louis.
Allen Stone – Sat 10/18/14 – Ready Room $22+
I don’t know much about Allen Stone, but stumbled across some youtube vids that make him rather tempting to see one can get over the glasses! 😉
If anyone is interested, let me know. I think I’d like to brave it:
Dirty Loops – Sun 11/9/14 – The Ready Room – $20-75
Just learned of these guys, and so ready to see them! Lots of covers, however I hear they have originals too…
And one of my favorite below will be in the upgraded $10 million Jazz at the Bistro:
Jeff Lorber Fusion featuring Jimmy Haslip and Eric Marienthal – 2/18/15-21/2015 – Jazz at the Bistro $35+
