I caught Melvin and JGB at club Metronome in Burlington Vermont Sunday 10/21/12.
I thought this band was absolutely fantastic. Unbelievably tight band. You know, one of those bands that sound amazingly tight from the first note. Melvin has of course a real B3, not some digital emulation of a B3. And two real Leslie cabs, nothing sounds, ur actually "feels" like that. No freaking digital emulation sounds anything close.
Dave Herbert, Melvin's guitar player is no doubt one of the best Jerry influenced guitar players out there. Freaking great. Sings a bunch of Jerry band songs with an authentic style reminiscent of big guy himself. Fantastic guitar playing. Super nice guy, easy to chat with. Playing a Troy Post, with the Waldo buffer.
I highly recommend seeing this band as they are freaking awesome! I went expecting good, and they delivered awesome. One of the best shows I have seen post Jerry. If you are a younger person, who missed seeing Jerry, this band delivers an amazing show. Highly reminiscent of the real thing. With maybe a bit more energy. Played JGB songs, with a killer shakedown encore.
Lighting was terrible for taking pics with my point and shoot, but here are a couple to take a look at.
No kidding, freaking awesome.......................
