Lenny Federal had his CD release party at the Double Door last night. There were a lot of people there and we all had a very good time. In attendance was me, Super Wendell, Snow, Joe and Vic from the Stroke and The One Big Loud Guy. For an important Lenny show the usual crowd of relatives and friends were there.
The band consisted of Bill Walpole on slide, Lenny on 'lectric, Michael Federal on acoustic and vocals, Butch on bass and Big John Wicker on drums and vocals and Wendell of Federal Bureau of Rock 'n' Roll fame on the soundboard contributing the occasional back up vocal. They played a reserved first set with merely set the stage for the blistering jamming that took place for the rest of the night. It really was a lot of fun. Super Wendell stole the show near the end with some manic dancing that you don't get to see too often outside of Mississippi juke joints and electric chairs.
I bought a CD which allows me to say Listened to on the way to work: All the Good People by Lenny Federal!!
This may be news to you but Bookpimp has been sporting a beard lately. I have been trying to decide what a bearded Bookpimp reminds me of and I just figured it out a few minutes ago. He looks like Jim Morrison right before he died.
