Band Beyond Description
Thursday, December 15 / 9:00 pm-12:30 am
If the Grateful Dead is your religion, then the Crazy Horse is your church when Third Thursday rolls around. Every month Jonny Mojo (Achilles Wheel) and Gary Campus (Deadbeats) assemble a cast of the finest musicians from around the region to conjure lightning in a bottle. BBD is a gathering point for everyone who wants to plug into the feeling of what it was like going to a Dead show. The music that bubbles forth from these nights captures the spontaneous, explosive, freewheeling spirit that so many of us cherish.
For the final 2022 edition of BBD, we have a pair of returning guests who both bring a funky, jazzy flair to the mix. Jonathan Stoyanoff (Joe Craven and the Sometimers) is the most expressive bassist we know, summoning liquid low end fluidity from deep within the earth. It’s not all too often that we’ve had saxophone injected into the equation with this band. Eric Weber brings the heat and smiley good vibes, playing his ass off on both alto and tenor. It will be fun to see how the horns launch these songs to unforeseen places. The band has a killer setlist pieced together from a few offbeat December 15th diamonds in the rough. You can always look forward to Tim High taking us to the promised land with his heartfelt vocal heroics.
