Fun at the Pro Jam

April 25th, 2012

I have not been to more than a couple of open mic/blues jam type affairs, but have wanted to find a good scenario with a high level of musicianship without a lot of attitude. The Pro Jam run by Timm Walker at Vinnie’s Bar & Grill in Concord, CA seems to fit that bill pretty well, and the other night they had a super cool special guest: Tommy Castro. I was fortunate enough to land a slot late in the evening just when Tommy returned to the stage to close out the night, and as if I wasn’t already lucky enough, they picked Sex Machine. Doesn’t get a whole lot more fun than this for me. Tommy Castro on guitar and vocals, Timm Walker on bass, Byron Cage (of Tommy’s band) on drums, Simon Russel on keys and vocals, and yours truly on chicken scratch and shouts.
