Live, Love, Listen

Music For This Saturday!


Most every week I play the 4:30 service at First Unitarian Church of Rochester NY with a band named Orange Sky. Every month there is a one word theme the month is focused on. This month is Character, and we try to focus the tunes we play around this theme. WARNING, not all of the music is the kind of stuff I would typically pull up on my playlists, but much of it is. We can play anything from Allison Krauss to Frank Zappa.

That said, I will present some of the tunes we play each week here for your enjoyment. If you like it, maybe you want to hear it live, come out and see us:

Hrm. Don’t those opening chords sound suspicously like “Sweet Jane”?

Tom Morello is one of my “go to” activist inspirations and his work with RAGE is possibly the most influential guitar work through the 90s, and Chris Cornell’s work up to this point in his musical career was just short of musical genius…(what happened Chris?)

The Fab Four… enough said!

Pretty much anyone who has graced the Austin City Limits stage (County & Blues Carnegie Hall) is good enough for me. Check out this tribute to Dr. King!

I have a thing about 1977, Lindsey Buckingham and Christie McVeigh.

ooooooo weeeeee what’s up with that?

Speaking of Fleetwood Mac, here’s Peter Green with John Mayall’s Blues Breakers playing Freddie King’s “The Stumble”. John Mayall, who still tours is the greatest band leader you may have never heard of he discovered Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood, and John McVie of Fleetwood Mac; Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce of Cream; Harvey Mandell, Walter Trout, and Larry Taylor of Canned Heat. SICK!

Come LISTEN to us LIVE and LOVING it!
