almost 2 1/2 hours of DJ Rafe Gomez playing tunes (2 1/2 hours is WAY TOO
F**KIN' LONG..... can anyone tell me what the f**k is the deal with this??),
Soulive finally started playing at 10:15pm with the songs "El Ron"
and "Steppin'". Both were fine jazz tunes but better was the funkier
"Bobby Bird" and "Flurries", both featuring Sam Kininger on
hot saxophone...drummer Alan Evans performed lead vocals with backing vocal
support by guitarist Eric Krasno (on "Bobby Bird")! But WAY BETTER
was that amazingly wild Funkadelic-style jam starring Neal Evans on SUPER-SUPER-SUPERFUNKY
clavinet and bass synthesizer before the band went into "One in
Seven".... HELL, Neal was still jammin' on clavinet during most of the
song (it was amazing to watch his fingers literally fly at top speed, pouncing
hard on the keys)!!!!!!!!! I think that this was the song that featured a good
drum solo by Alan. "Dig" was almost DA BOMB, featuring guitar chords
that borrowed a little from Jimi Hendrix's "Dolly Dagger" and
sinister synthesizer riffs that come from Dr. Dre's "Nuttin' But a 'G'
Thang"! Sam returned to play sax for the songs "Liquid", the
lively "Cannonball", "East" and "Tuesday".
I was feelin' a little under the weather so I left the club at 11:45pm.....I would imagine that Soulive probably wrapped their show around 12:00 midnight.
