The Best Band You’ll Ever See in a Sports Bar

Because the NAMM show has returned to Nashvegas, we can expect to see some incredible music in town this coming weekend.  And some of it will be in unexpected places.

A little birdie (OK, really it was a musician friend of mine) told me about a show on Saturday night that I cannot freakin’ believe.

At 9:30 upstairs in the pool room of the Sportsman’s Grille in Hillsboro Village, Jack Pearson, Tony Monaco and Jim White will be playing as a jazz trio.  For free.  In a sports bar.

For the underinformed, Jack Pearson is a virtuoso guitar player who has played with everyone from Bobby “Blue” Bland to the Allman Brothers.  Tony Monaco is probably one of the top three Hammond B-3 organ players on the planet.  And Jim White, well he’s just plain a motherf*cker on the drums.

It should be an amazing show!  It’s nights like this that make me feel very lucky to live in this town.

    Jim White’s been touring with Allison Krauss for the last year or so. He’s also playing with Jim Ferguson, an incredible upright bass player and singer, at F. Scotts on Monday night.

  5. […] Tony Monaco and Jim White will be forming a jazz trio for the night. Chris C. gives us the scoop on his blog, and a little background on each of the musicians. Be there, 9:30pm. [Thanks for the tip, […]
