IF YOU'RE HUNGRY FOR SOME GROOVY ROOTS MUSIC THIS WEEKEND, HOW 'BOUT A LITTLE STIR FRIED
. The East Coast ensemble has made Cincy a regular stop on their consistent touring adventures. While based on Funk, Rock, Blues and Psychedelia, there's no telling where the group will go next
. Legendary pedal steel guitarist Buddy Cage provides many of the highlights on the band's latest release, Last of The Blue Diamond Miners
, his slinky, dazzling playing giving the tracks an extra level of trippy depth. But the band is one tight unit, exhibiting a near telepathic ability to play off of each other. Blue Diamond is rounded out by many other "legends" -- Vassar Clements, Tony Trishka and Bernie Worrell also make stellar guest appearances. Mmmm, good stuff.
At Stanley's Pub on Friday.
