MP3 Hot Club Sandwich - Live On The Verandah
Swing, Western Swing, Jazz, Blues
14 MP3 Songs
BLUES: Blues Vocals, COUNTRY: Western Swing
Welcome to a night out at The Verandah Café. We''ve played hundreds of gigs over the last three years and travelled all over the country, but playing the Verandah is like coming home.
Many of the same reassuring faces drift in as the sun goes down, bottles in hand (sometimes one for the band!); they sit as close as they can - easier to ask for their favourite songs - and the same tantalising aromas waft through from the kitchen as Judy whips up another magnificent three course spread. The regulars have become more like family than an audience - we see them every month and try out our new songs on them, and they don''t mind indulging us when we give the old favourites another outing.
To keep going in this business, it''s important to feel important - at least occasionally - and this is the ''fix'' we get from the Verandah.
We''d like to dedicate this album to our audience of ''ratbags and misfits'', our wonderful Judy and all her staff, and the long list of fine musicians who have played The Verandah with us - most especially James, Neil and Johnny who contributed their extraordinary talents on the nights these tracks were recorded.
