Some local reviews2/10/2007
We got a couple of local blog reviews for our recent show at the King Club in Madison:
Lorenzo's Music opened the show. I arrived after Lorenzo's had already started. I've heard their latest album, Solamente Tres Palabras and it's great, but I think they really shine live. Mark Whitcomb's easy-going stage manner and off-the-cuff brilliance as a guitar player is extremely engaging. Plus he's playing a vintage Sunn Stadium amp these days. Leslie West for days!
That show also claimed Lorenzo’s Music saxophonist Bryan, an original member of the Crunchies (or at least going back to the first time I ever saw them). Surprisingly, with how intrinsic his saxophone is to their sound they still sounded good. It’s hard not to like Lorenzo’s Music, handsome lead singer Tom Ray has a strong stage presence and an addictive voice (something close to Firewater’s Tod A). And of course I’m always a sucker for any band that has Scott Beardsley on drums (which is about half of the (good) ones in Madison).
