The Revivalists – Live!

I just returned from Buffalo NY where I watched my beloved Buffalo Bills beat the mighty Green Bay Packers! One takeaway: Who knew there were that many Packer fans from Canada?! They were there in droves! Anyway, before I left, I found time to catch The Revivalists show at the Barrymore Theatre in Madison WI. The Revivalists are from New Orleans and friends who live there told me they were not to be missed. Boy, were they right – these guys are great! And it’s only fitting that I feature a set from this year’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Enjoy!

Los Straightjackets w/ Big Sandy & The Pontani Sisters

Los Straightjackets played with Nick Lowe and his Quality Holiday Revue at the Barrymore Theatre in Madison WI last week. Los Straightjackets are a masked, instrumental surf rock band. But as you’ll see from this video, what they don’t have in vocals they make up for with strippers – the beautiful Pontani sisters! Eat your heart out, Dick Dale!

Nick Lowe – “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love & Understanding”

Nick Lowe’s Quality Holiday Revue played the Barrymore Theatre in Madison WI last night. Unfortunately, it wasn’t all happiness as Nick’s good friend Ian McLagan (Small Faces) who was supposed to be on this Tour, passed away suddenly. Nick Lowe is backed up by masked surf rock band, Los Straightjackets. Who knew they were this good at Christmas music?! I was going to post Nick Lowe’s original Christmas song, “Christmas At The Airport” but I found this tribute he and Los Straightjackets did to Ian McLagan just yesterday.
