Had a great time yesterday playing with my band, Mediocre Bad Guys, alongside the legendary Bobby Keys, well-known sax player for the Rolling Stones, at the BudBreak Wine Festival in Mount Airy, NC. Bobby, by the way, is the dapper looking fella in the cap. This is the third time we've shared the stage with Bobby (fourth if you count the jam session at our practice space when an official gig got snowed out). It's a testament to the random happenstance way life rolls sometimes, as we got hooked up with Bobby through a friend of the band (who also lets us use the basement of his warehouse for practicing) who knows Bobby and invited him to Mayberry one Christmas break. You can read my blog post about that first gig with Bobby HERE.
Bobby's always a lot of fun to play with, and has an amazing knack for coming up with phenomenal sax parts in songs nobody but him would ever imagine sax in. And when he growls out that sax solo on "Brown Sugar" it sure is something special.
There are a lot of other pics and hopefully some videos coming soon on our Facebook page, so consider "liking" the page and keeping in touch with the band.
Oh, and Bobby just put out a biography of his pretty amazing life. You can check it out on Amazon HERE.
