OooohWheee, that is a mouthful, even from me. But that’s what we’ve got today from The Mermaid Lounge.
This is your line-up for Friday:
11:00 a.m. The Robert Cray Band with Stevie Ray Vaughan Live at Club Redux, Dallas, Texas, January 21, 1987 NEW!
There is no question that this is a Robert Cray Band concert at Club Redux, but he’s joined on stage by Stevie Ray Vaughan at the end for an amazing jam and the encore performance of New Blood. Some of the best musical experiences come in small packages.
3:00 p.m. The Paul Butterfield Blues Band at The Unicorn Coffee House, Boston, Spring 1966
Spring 1966 is the closest we can get to the actual date of this performance. This is one for the wayback machine of your mind. Boston had a pretty amazing music scene, I must say. The Unicorn Coffee House (the only beverage served), Club 47, Jonathan Swifts, among the best. We veterans of such places yearn for those days again.
We may not have the exact date, but we did manage to find the set list! This is posted under the Playlist tab of this blog. Scroll to the bottom!
7:00 p.m. The Allman Brothers Band with Eric Clapton, Live at The Beacon Theater, NY, March 19, 2009
On a March evening in 2009, Eric Clapton joined the brothers on stage at New York’s Beacon Theater for six great songs and the rest is history as you will see.
