^^is this post for real?
Wow...what an incredible song/performance. I'm now a fan.
we went out there on Sunday night to watch the Irish dude do his comical, but very good choice of music. Had a great time for a couple of hours or so, but the best part of the night was when these two guys went up on stage and grabbed the bands equipment and started wailing!!! Singers voice was unreal, choice of songs was so original compared to the average Charleston choices! As the crowd thinned out as the old irish man and his son went inside to pound some beers, these two guys took it upon themselves to keep the music playing, and with great quality i must say! I believe the band was called St.Able, just moved down to here and showed us a side of music thats been missing! I remember a "Dear Mr. Fantasy into the "hey Jude ending". Unreal vocals and guitar!!! next song was No Woman No Cry" from B Marley, it sounded so good that you'd think Marley was singing! The best of their little improv set was by far "The Weight", you know the "take a load off of Annie, take a load for free"? Next was a song called 'Coconuts", I think original but not certain? Either way they absolutely killled it with these lyrical peaks that just screamed Good Time!!!! I remember, "I like coconuts, you can break them open and they smell like ladies lying in the sun", anyway please get these guys back in there to play!!! Singers name was Pearce, from the Myrtle Beach area is all I know. He knew the owners son so maybe he already plays there, owe can only hope so!!! Go St.Able!!!!!!
If you or someone you know has a instrument to donate or just the time to come see a great show, it all will add up to being a success if kids and teens of the Charleston area that have always dreamed of being a musician, truly get that chance! We are doing our best, please join in to make a musical dream come true!
To this comment and event that I was a part of, it was a great success! Now on March 13th, Melvin Seals and The Jerry Garcia Band will be playing at the Music Farm to raise money and collect donations of musical instruments for underprivileged kids in the area. If you or anyone you know, would like to be a part of this great event please contact Pearce Ridout at 843-957-7530. The event is hosting 3 bands, will start at 7:30 and go on until we've done the job of putting musical instruments into the hands of local kids and teens!
Were you at shaky knees last year? I was. Talk about a mud filled disaster. Not to mention severely lacking bathrooms and sky high food and drink prices. If you're comparing lineups, take a look at the musical acts we get in Charleston v Atlanta and this is par for the course. And how sweet is that $99 after you drive 8 hours+ there and back plus pay for hotels etc. if you're gonna compare, at least compare apples to apples.
@-Ima, that's awesome!! Yea, that place sucks.
I miss Meritage!!
Thank you, God, for Shaky Knees fest - for $99 I get 3 days of top-notch national headliners as opposed to this sad, poorly run (at least last year) disaster (rain or no rain).
I was in New Orleans for the post-Katrina VooDoo fest in 2006 and it was better run than last year's Spring Jam - and VooDoo actually forgot to set up a stage the first day...
finally, something that might be considered worth one's time. I'll definitely look forward to going down. They have a great beer selection!
How about dueling chefs? the two times I've eaten there the food totally sucked.
I Really Hope James Jamerson Get's Inducted Into The South Carolina Hall Of Fame I Had The Chance To Record With His Late Baby Boy derrick Jamerson On A Song Entitled Show You Love Which Was Written By Derrick Jamerson On The Edwin Starr Timeless Energy Album And It's Also On Two More Edwin Starr's Albums
Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings! Yes.
Over 40 years ago I saw an Arlo show with my Dad. I grew up right across the Massachusetts/New York border from Arlo, I'm just a couple of years younger and I'm a big fan and my Dad was a huge Woody fan. I took him to a show at a little club in Saratoga Springs and after the show my Dad observed that the only difference been Arlo and Woody was that Woody's songs were about the Labor struggle and freedom and Arlo's were about the counter-culture and freedom. Other than that, he said, the songs and the performance style was exactly the same. Funny that it took Arlo so long to realize it.
Saw him perform last night at the Schermerhorn here in Nashville and he was incredible!! I gotta say everyone evolves in their own way because of what their lives have become. He did a few old tunes and rocked a song from his largest album that was great. He even did a slow creshendo acoustic version of "Lie to Me" solo that blew me and the crowd away. This wasn't the first time I have seen him live and it won't be the last!
I wear my sunglasses at night because the future's so bright.
Great show by a living legend!!
Well, there's that. And boys and girls from the Farm.
Well, and those of us that have migraines triggered by fluorescent lights, flashing stage lights, and the like.
To bad the kid is walking away from what the people enjoy from him...the blues sound. Guess this is what happens when your billfold gets so large you dump on what makes you worth listening to.
