High Beamz: Scary Good on Friday the 13th

“You can’t win ’em all,” yes, so we’ve been told. But it’s still painful on the occasions when bands that traveled from afar get less than the appreciation they deserve. Granted, even when there aren’t many people here, those that are always make their graciousness felt. Arriving full of optimism from the Bay Area, High […]

A Grateful May at the Crazy Horse

Jerry Garcia was at the Crazy Horse last Saturday night. No, not the guy who kicked the bucket 18 years ago. Actually a cute little dog named Jerry Garcia who belonged to the bass player from Totally Dead – Dave – and his partner Katie. While they did share a striking resemblance, one could be […]

The name is almost too cliché: Groove Session. “Oh sure; We better look out cause you guys are gonna lay down a wicked groove session.” We took it with a grain of salt and didn’t set the expectations high. No matter how many times we try, it’s really hard to get an idea of what […]

Stu Allen and Justin Purtill: Acoustic Brilliance Through the Garcia Prism

Beyond extreme technical proficiency on his instrument, it’s Stu Allen’s astounding ability to channel the essence of Jerry Garcia which fuels his legendary status. Rather than strive to emulate the late icon, what he does is express a palpable sense of love and reverence through an uncanny grasp of Garcia’s musical mannerisms. He doesn’t have […]

Zach Deputy: Oh, So that’s What You Mean by ‘Gospel Ninja Soul’

We’ve had a steady stream of exceptional artists gracing our stage at the Crazy Horse Saloon but none as high profile as Zach Deputy. The guy has over 25,000 likes on Facebook. He’s not a household name by any means, but as far as one-man-band phenomena go, he is only surpassed by Keller Williams. Inhabiting […]

McTuff: Serving Up an Improv Masterpiece Until the Cows Come Home

In this day and age, using “Mc” as a prefix implies phoniness, commercialism or anything of the cookie-cutter variety. Considering their antithesis to those definitions, the name of the band which played at the Crazy Horse on Friday October 18 is rather ironic.
