Jon will also be appearing the night before with Neko Case, who closes the first day of the party, as part of the on going Neko tour.
I saw your sestet on Sunday and loved your performance of “Powerhouse”. I was the one who called out for “Bud’s Bounce” at the conclusion of the show. The whole set was great, even if evidence of Saturday evening shown though occasionally, because that’s what my band sounds like from time to time also.
