What a joyous occasion it was last Saturday night at Legion Branch 92 in Gananoque. Actual, real live people filling a room to enjoy a concert! And dance!! Thanks to everyone who came out to the "Tom Savage Music Extravaganza" featuring Dead Root Revival, Weathered Siding, and the Savage Family Band. It felt so good for us to be able to perform for you, and by all reports, it was good for the souls of those in the audience as well. : )

Live Music is Fun ( and so is Bandcamp Friday)!!
Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio - This band features organist Delvon Lamarr, a self-taught virtuosic musician, with perfect pitch who taught himself jazz and has effortlessly been able to play a multitude of instruments. On guitar is the dynamo Jimmy James who eases through Steve Cropper-style chanking guitar, volcanic acid-rock freak-out lead playing, and slinky Grant Green style jazz. From Reno, Nevada is drummer Dan Weiss (also of the powerhouse soul and funk collective The Sextones). Dan’s smoldering pocket-groove drumming locks in the trio’s explosive chemistry.
The True Loves are on same wavelength as Delvon Lamarr, even including guitarist Jimmy James, but swap out the organ for a horn section, and a conga player. Fun stuff!
Here are a couple of albums I sent to Doug:
The Sweetback Sisters first emerged in 2007 with their debut EP" The collection earned them a record deal with stalwart indie label Signature Sounds, and over the course of three ensuing albums, the band built a dedicated following in the US and Europe and racked up a heap of critical acclaim. The New Yorker raved that the women are "strong singers who revel in close harmonies," while Sing Out! said that their music "bristles with the energy of the very best young American performers," and NPR praised them as "Americana darlings with a roadhouse edge".
