Bamboo Room, which closed a year ago as a result of the economic environment. Its not easy providing south Florida residents with live music, since many musicians are reluctant to travel so far south. Case in point, we were excited to see that a show by Eric Lindell co-incited with our July 4th excursion - but the band was behind schedule because of traffic delays in the 13+ hour drive from New Orleans. Yet, the show was well worth the wait. Next month Lindell and M.C. Records release West County Drifter (MC-0067) his first release for M.C. Records and his first national release in over two years. Yet this evening was old, classic material from Gulf Coast Highway, Low On Cash, Rich In Love, and Change In The Weather. This was my second time seeing Lindell live and I have always appreciated his guitar playing, but this evening I concentrated on his songwriting. What clever songs. And the Trio compensated for arriving late by playing way into the evening. Awesome. Videos will be available at MyJoogTV.com very soon.
