Later, my teacher/mentor (also our spearhead-er of the tour), Bruce Forman arrived at La Posada with his band, Cowbop! As always, they were stellar and everybody loved them!
Now, I've seen the band many times at home in L.A. (go check 'em out at Viva Cantina in Burbank), but I have to say this time I was simply reminded of how important it was to be an entertainer. I've always loved Cowbop's musicianship but marveled tonight at how easily they connected with the audience telling jokes and sharing stories. The jokes were pretty clever and they seemed to have followed the minstrel's tradition of mixing amazing performance with this fantastic deadpan humor I know and love. That's not something every musician is comfortable doing but now I want to try it! Afterwards we all had dinner next door at the Turquoise Room and just hung all night. It was great seeing you guys!
Next (and final) stop -- Evangelo's at Santa Fe! See you guys soon!
