got to The Upstage a little late around 10:50pm and the North Mississippi
Allstars were already playing a set filled with the sounds of country, funk
& a little taste of rock. The next song that the NMS Allstars played
featured some great lead guitar riffing by Luther Dickinson and some very
good drumming by his brother, Cody. Sometime during the show, I
witnessed some very good rhythm guitaring by guitarist, Garry Burnside. The
only song titles that I know are "Going Down South" and "All
Night Long". "Going Down South" was a nice slice of country-funk
with some strong, funky bass licks by Chris Crew. Cody and Garry
switched instruments before the song "All Night Long". "All
Night Long" was more of the country/funk material.....I think this
was the song where Cody Dickinson (drummer) was playing percussion on an
old-fashioned washing board with some metallic fingertips! Pretty innovative!
The show ended at 11:45pm.
