GETTIN' FUNK-AY on Saturday, February 2, 2008
We finally got a really good "local" show on a Saturday night when the Greyboy Allstars, one of our top 10 touring bands, played in nearby Oxford!
Here's what was on the setlist that Rob snagged off the stage after the show:
What Happened to TV?
Back in the Game
Cramp Your Style
Nautilus (a Bob James cover)
We're pretty sure they played all those songs, plus a cover of Grant Green's "Jan Jan" at the end of the set. Who knows, though, since the only designated driver was Josh. We think we'll find out soon, since there were several tapers with mic stands recording the show.
Check out some of Greyboy Allstars music at their Myspace page.
Proud Larry's, only 45 minutes from our house. With its small size, it's easy to enjoy an intimate performance with excellent sightlines and perfect sound. (It's also easy to get close-up photos of the band, though it would be nice if there were a little more light on stage, since we don't believe in blinding the musicians with flashbulbs.) In the photo above, the band is playing back in the corner, and the front door of the venue is just beyond the right edge of the picture. The fact that these days a lot of people around these parts don't even know who Greyboy Allstars are was nice too, since it never got too crowded and we had plenty of room to get our groove on.
