BoT is ever-expanding, and I’d like to welcome Cafe Con Leche, my music-lovin friend B Gutierrez from Northwest Arkansas. She’ll be having musical adventures from that surprisingly well-traveled corner of the state.
It’s been three weeks after the intimate G. Love & Special Sauce show at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, AR on March 31st. But I still find myself singing to the songs they played, and telling everyone that cares to hear how fun and how refreshing that night was.
The set had a bluesy, sexy start with “Blues Music,” and it only got better from there. The crowd swaying in unison, along with G. Love’s torso while he sat owning the vocals, the electric guitar and the harmonica. The next hit, “Garbage Man,” showed the audience just how well he manages all three. But the magic happens when G. Love comes together along band mates Jeffrey Clemens (drums, vocals), Mark Boyce (keyboards), and wild-eye string bass man Timo Shank to form the very special sauce.
