Mandy Smith's CD release last night was excellent. There was a good crowd, and she has a way of communicating with an audience that is totally engaging and mystifying. Mandy rocked out on keys (go Mandy!) and she was joined by a killer band including Paul (of Tody & The Falcon
) on drums, Robert Smalls of D.R.U.M.
on percussion, and Philip Tague (also of Rumblecat) on guitar (plus Lisa and Melissa on guitar & bass, respective, neither of whom I've met). It was a fantastic show - kudos to them.
