Roy Ayers hot or not
All the Ak based BMP members were in attendance for Jazz/Funk legend Roy Ayers’ gig on saturday night. I don’t know if the others have much to say about it.
Instead of a review here is a hot or not as I am at work and don’t have time.
Nearly beating the ninja at ‘burnout 3: takedown’ despite his supposed superiority.
Lengthy and mostly good set from Mr Ayers and band, hitting on his most well known songs early on (We live in Brooklyn, everybody loves the sunshine, running away) and continuing on with mostly fun excursions into funk land (including a version of the great Funkadelic track ‘knee deep’). Some slow sections enabled the lazier members of the BMP opportunity to slip out to the deck for a more sedate drink.
Impressive one handed drum solo!
More girls at the party than the average gig the BMP attends.
Scott’s fine work in negotiating a tray of drinks through a crowd of dancing people.
Nat’s french toast and bacon with maple syrup. Awesome.
Sound during Manuel Bundy’s set – rather booming and overbearing. Sound was good during the band though so can’t complain too much.
Sale street venue closing the deck just when we’d found a nice place to sit where we could still enjoy the music.
Not being (redacted) for this gig. It clearly would have improved things.
Websta’s expression on realising he would have to walk through a sizeable section of crowd with a fetching handbag on each arm. He manned up and did it though.
