Last night at Fergie’s Pub
Last night I dragged a few friends to Fergie’s Pub to see the Cabin Dogs. Rob and Rich are twin brothers with a bluegrassy jam band and they’re really awesome. I enjoyed them because I love when bands have these whole sections of just instrumental music. I used to really dig instrumental music on piano, by orchestra, stuff like that. My buddy Jay enjoyed them because he’s lately been getting into Phish and Grateful Dead. Former MB-lady Jeannette said they’re awesome, and she’s right. Her friend also dated one of the band members or something.
A big surprise to the evening was Marc Silver playing a short interlude set. Marc pulled up with his band of the night, banjo John and upright basser-dude Matt. There was some cross mojination regarding the booking for Fergie’s that evening, apparently, but the Cabin Dogs are cool people and Marc got to play, which is cool because I missed him at last week’s open-air concert at the Old Pine Community Center.
Adrienne Hamilton was also there. If you don’t know her, then you simply must. (a) she’s hot. (b) she’s a great pianist. (c) she’s a great singer-songwriter. (d) she kept me company when my friends left Fergie’s, and drove me to my car down in Old City.
Marc‘s next gig is at Three Bears Park on June 8th.
Adrienne‘s next gig is at the Tin Angel on June 23rd.
Cabin Dogs‘ next gig is at the Camden Waterfront, also on June 23rd, but that’s at noon.
Your Secret Identity‘s Jay V (that’s me!) is playing a solo gig at Pat’s Shamrock on June 13th.
Info for all these great musicians can be found on their websites. Or just go to their myspaces.
