8:15pm, it was time for the Birthday Boy, Jerome Jordan, and his band to take
the Sugar Bar on a cosmic journey through the depths of one's soul. The band started
off on a funky note with the first song, featuring good bass riffing by Ganessa
James and standout rhythm guitar and lead vocals by Jerome Jordan, but the
organ riffs by Sean Willis were too loud... sometimes drowning out the guitar
chords. The second song was a nice ballad, with a spotlight on Ganessa's
bass playing. The third song sounded like the bridge from a Funkface song
called "Summertime" (tell me Jerome, am I right?!) A few more songs
led into the brilliant
"Light Stores", featuring blazing guitarisms by Jerome, funky
clavinet riffing by Sean and backing vocals by Ganessa!! The spacy "Conjurer" was
followed by a mildly funky tune called "Cumulus".
"I Don't Mind", a great R&B tune with a funky attitude, featured more of Jerome's wild guitar style (including some spaced-out echo effects)!! The psychedelic "Baggage" was very good, but better was the rock jam that followed...it was DA BOMB with more of Jerome's rock guitarisms (it was like Jerome was still with Funkface) and red-hot drumming by new drummer Mark Robohm. The last song was some super-funky stuff in the vein of The Commodores's "Brick House". The show was over at 9:15pm.
