What's a "spare beat"?
Heard these guys in LA and also Santa Barbara, and fell in love.
Pristine harmonies, truly inspired playing across the board, and songs that break the mold creatively.
And well, lets call it, all those handsome Ronstadts.
Come back to So Cal, RG!!!
He is merely exercising the age old adage "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." And since when has anything the weakly does ever been confused as legitimate journalism. That being said his aversion of Ms. Savage is completely warranted.
Since when should reporting an event be colored by a writer's likes or dislikes? Very poor journalism.
Maybe the writer didn't LIKE Lee Anne Savage and didn't want to waste valuable column space.
This is absolutely my favorite band in the world. Truly. They are Tucson; they feel like home.
Brandon: It worked for me just now. Maybe try a different browser?
Site no longer works, boooooo!
Great summary! I would like to add that the LeAnne Savage band rocked it too!! Loving our music scene here lately.
How about LeeAnne Savage & her band?
Bravo to all the great bands that performed! And how about a big shout out to LeeAnne Savage and her awsome band covering the Dixie Chicks! She certainly nailed the tunes with her energy and a versitile voice!
Props to her and her band...with a slew of gigs and her total commitment to The Huamane Society and various other community projects...her passion for music to aide others prevailed! Rock on Tucson and The Great Cover-Up! Can't wait till next year!
What about LeeAnne Savage and her band. Why no mention of them?
I *still* want to know what that was. :-) I can't wait for My Jerusalem again tonight. So glad they're coming back to town...
Very cool video - love these guys.
FYI: Apologies for being late with this. I would've thought someone might have caught this by now. But, although Brubeck was a great player, bandleader, arranger and composer, he did not, in fact, compose "Take Five," and that error was perpetuated widely via the Internet in the days following his passing. Alto saxophonist Paul Desmond actually wrote that tune, and he is featured prominently in the video accompanying this posting.
Not a bad idea, Old Man. I'll do some looking around, and we might have something on Mr. Pierce later today on We Got Cactus.
John Travolta is disgusting in every way except the way he moves. I could watch him all day long. I'm sorry, but if you can like R. Kelly, I'm *totally* entitled to liking John Travolta's moves.
How about a sample of a little of Jeffrey Lee Pierce music?
Tucson Gimmick Bands. Soo clever!
