Pop Prodigy

Boot consumption was down last night at Ye Olde Essen Haus (Das Essen Haus for my German-speaking relatives), but the Band was up. Up where? Swooping aloft in some stratospheric astral plane of 60s nostalgia.

Polymath of musical memorabilia Billy Flynn was delighting in guitar renditions pulled from his prodigious Pop grab bag—Uptight (Everything Is Alright), The In Crowd, What’s Going On, Blues Theme (from Easy Rider), The Lonely Bull, We’ll Sing In The Sunshine (!!?!?!!)—the list went on, all interspersed with that Blues that earned him a Grammy for the Cadillac Records soundtrack.

Kudos to trap-kit stalwart Kenny Koeppler who stepped in at the last minute for an ailing Rick Becker and kept pace with the mercurial mind of Mr. Flynn. Wherever Big Wes was, we kinda thought maybe we felt his presence.


Up next: Friday Nov. 6. SOFAR Milwaukee with Faux Fawn!
