The Heartbreakers Live in Chicago, “Moondog Matinee” Debuts as Album of The Week, and a Great New (Old) Band Called Truffle Later On, Sunday, December 20, 2020

Good Morning, Music Lovers! We have another great Sunday of music lined up for you. It’s a day of rest. Stop fucking shopping for one day and put your damned feet up.

The Band’s Moondog Matinee debuts as our Album of The Week.

Here’s today’s line-up:

11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live From The Vic Theatre, Chicago, April 17, 2003

The house band is back, and this is a great show here from a small venue — holding 1,400 people, but 1,000 if seated. I regret not seeing Petty in a small venue. I had the opportunity with Mudcrutch at The House of Blues in Boston in 2016, and I blew it big time.

3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Moondog Matinee by The Band NEW!

There’s not much more you can say about The Band, but their fifth studio album is an homage to OPM (Other People’s Music). Released in 1973, the album reflects the group’s love of R & B and the blues, covering songs written by Clarence “Frogman” Henry, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Sam Cooke, and others. The only exception to this is their interpretation of the theme from The Third Man. We are giving you the expanded version here.

6:00 p.m. Truffle Live at The House of Haze, Farmington, NH, October 18, 2020 NEW!

Truffle is not exactly new. In fact (Savoy) Truffle has been around since 1986. Seems incredible to me that the name isn’t rolling off everyone’s tongue.

Truffle is David Bailey (bass, vocals), Ned Chase (mandolin, guitar, lap steel & vocals), Mike Gendron
(drums), Pete Kowalski (percussion) and Dave Gerard (vocals, electric & resonator guitars). Both
Dave’s and Ned have been creating music together since 1986. They have performed in all but ten states
across the U.S., playing as many as 275 shows in one year. Mike (still the rookie) joined the band with
years of experience in 1996; the only lineup change in the band’s history. Truffle has achieved widespread
popularity by headlining many respected venues as well as sharing the stage with international acts as Little
Feat, Phish, The Band, Dave Matthew’s Band, David Lindley, The Radiators, and Blues Traveler to
name only a few.

Tonight we have them in the spotlight live from The House of Haze in New Hampshire. The set list will be up and under the Playlist tab.

Again, let me reiterate how much time you’re wasting with radio stations that talk incessantly, sell you shit, and cost you money. What the hell is wrong with you?
