Tony Soul Project News October 31 2014
***Breaking News*** no gigs this week in observance of Halloween & Nicole’s CD Release Party
Friday Night – Toy Town Pub Winchendon, MA with the Danny Richard All-Stars. Fun time!! Ya, what happened? Kinda cool, let’s go back. Bunny loved us…
Saturday Night – Back to the Bolton Street Tavern 3rd time this month. Different crowd every time. Youth Hockey Team in the house. Thanks to Steve Brem & Tom Berardi with Chicago Steve for sitting in. Joel did a couple and Mark Sanchez joined in late on trumpet.
Sunday Night Tony Soul Project filled in for Jim Perry with vocalist Ms. J.J. Sadler as our feature
We started the jam portion at 6:40 and ran it to 7:50. With 8 drummers in the house we had to get a jump on things. I did a couple with the house band and then brought up Mike Corrado to play drums and he finished with Road House Blues on the vox. Dr. Sweetfire then joined the party with his signature version of No Particular Place to Go with Arizona Doug & Matt Sambito and Freddy Geer.. The Dr. finished with Unchain My Heart with the bleeding background vox of CoCo Corrice & Amy Cerce, um, I was in the middle of those 2, whole lotta love!! Chris Terp then came up to close out the first jam portion with a sparkling version of Superstition and Red House (Chris is a real trooper, seeing we only had 2 guitarists, volunteered to stay all night, bravo)
At 8:00 it was JJ Sadler time. She brought Nate Tello Boston guitarist and Justin, a vocalist for her set and she ran it straight through the Delta with some solid blues tunes, to a rousing rendition of Proud Mary & Mustang Sally. Her version of Drown In My Own Tears was epic. Jana is a wonderful vocalist and is in pursuit of her doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology. She had to run shortly after her set to get Mama to the train, no, actually to Bradley Airport, so it was nice that Mama was there to see her baby.
We finished the final jam set with the fine vox of Russell Watts and Lori Zuroff. The horn section was now in full bloom with Kevin Aucoin, Mark Sanchez & Bob from Valvatross working great together. The soul was dripping. Terp & Mike K were in orbit at this point and just as we were wrapping up Jeff Thomas blew in to play his new 6 string bass and finish the night with a burning version of Too Rolling Stoned by Robin Trower with Phil Delaine on drums
Drums? Danny Richard, Dana Bonardi, Yuri the Fury, Mike Russo, Alice, Phil Delaine, Mike Corrado
We really dig doing this jam. Everybody is so cooperative and understanding.
There is talk of a Monday Night Social @ Greendale’s beginning in January, stay tuned
