Post Re: What's Your Next Show?
I had to make a choice last night. Another dilemma. Savi Fernandez at Dunedin Brewery or Come Back Alice at the Ringside Café? I love Savi, and he always puts on an excellent show (and he’s probably doing just that at the Suwannee Disk Jam as I write this), but…

I chose Come Back Alice. And they crushed. Crushed it. Crushed it.
Three hours of spectacular music from CBA. Let me repeat my mantra first. In the moment, this was music as good as it gets. Come Back Alice can stand on stage with anybody. ANYBODY.

I have a lot to say about Tony Tyler and Dani Jaye, the front “men” of CBA, but first a word about their rhythm section. I gather it has been something of a revolving door of drummers and bassists over the past year or so, but you would never have known that from the tighter-than-tight performance last they. John Werner was excellent on bass, and Mr. Drummer (???) kept superb time. These men pushed the show over the top.

Tony Tyler is a triple threat on guitar, Hammond B3 and vocals. As superb as his guitar playing is and as soulful as his B3 work is, for me his vocals are most impressive. He is a Southern belter in the Gregg Allman – John Bell – Warren Haynes – JJ Grey category.

And then there is Dani Jaye, another triple threat. She adds badking vocals and plays a mean, mean guitar, but it is her violin – OK, fiddle – that will knock you out. I have seen a lot of fiddle players in my day, from bluegrass and jazz to blues and rock, but Dani is the only one I have seen who reminds me of my favorite violin player, Don “Sugarcane” Harris (reference several Harris performances with Zappa below). Stunning is the word I would use.

This is a complete band. I am so delighted they have been invited to Hulaween at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park with String Cheese Incident and STS9. They deserve that spot, and everybody who attends that festival will go home with Come Back Alice on their new favorites list. Come Back Alice can stand on stage with anybody. ANYBODY.

Well thursday we saw Donna the Buffalo at Bell's Brewery. Always enjoyable, and since we chose Hulaween over Mag, we thought we better get there to see them!

And last night was Widespread Panic in Indy. This band is simply on fire. What a show!

Next up is Mr. Blotto at a wine fest in Michigan, and possibly Yonder Mtn at HOB in Chicago.
Then we head south to our favorite place - SOSMP and Hulaween!!!

:D 8-) :P :D

They say you should observe an animal in its native habitat to understand its true nature. With that in mind, I ventured south to The 5 O’clock Club in Sarasota to get a glimpse of the Come Back Alice beast.

The Sarasota folks obviously already know what many others will discover in the coming months: Come Back Alice rocks the house. Their house. The Ringside Café. Skipper’s Smokehouse. On to Hulaween, which should open the floodgates wide. CBA again offered up a great mix of covers and originals (I like the originals even more than the great covers!). And there were dancers and head-bobbers (guilty!) everywhere. They have the place slammin’ on Wednesday nights.

There was yet another drummer (this time from Venezuela, maybe the same one I saw at Groovefest), but again the performance from the band was seamless. Big Bad John Werner again anchored the festivities with his groove-infested bass, and it was all good. I hope he is in for the duration.

If I had one minor complaint, and it is minor, given that I split before the last set, it is that Tony Tyler didn’t play the Hammond B-3 enough. However, when he did, he got that beautiful rich B3 sound, and it highlighted a brilliant solo from Dani Jaye on guitar. She is so infectious on violin that you sometimes forget that she is a truly excellent guitarist. Tony ripped off numerous blistering solos throughout the evening as well.

The band’s onstage persona is likewise infectious. It is simply impossible to ignore Dani’s wide smile while she is tearing it up – on violin and guitar. Also impossible to ignore are the smiles, grins and pure joy exchanged by everyone in the band.

Great music. Great presentation. Fun and joy. What’s not to love?

HOOPSTERS: you have been warned!
