Wednesday marked the return of The Garrett Sayers Trio to The Highland Tap in Denver's Lower Highlands. More than just a place to dine, drink and catch the occasional music showcase, The Tap has become a staple on the Colorado scene. Wednesday also marked the first informal LOHI Music Festival meeting, to discuss this year's bands and options. As we dined and discussed, I glanced around the room to see members of a few reputable Colorado bands, also dining and waiting for the evening's music. As Garrett Sayers, Patrick Lee and Jonny Jyemo arrived, things started to take shape. Fans and friends made sure to say hello to the trio as they set up their gear and began the brief soundcheck.
Garrett Sayers Live at Highland Tap & Burger on November 7, 2012.
The first few notes of the evening triggered a flood of patrons into the music room as folks got down. Familiar faces of weekly regulars littered The Tap as the trio ripped into some of their new material like "Mrs. Lee," as well as crowd favorites like "Go Hard." The chemistry of GS3 has always been fantastic, but as of late it has been mind-blowing. The band was also joined by special guest Jaden Carlson on guitar, for some ripping solo work! As the music gets bigger, the crowd gets bigger and more and more musicians from the scene are stopping by and reaching out to get involved at The Tap! Two full hours of music came to a close with folks hanging out to thank the band, finish their drinks and say goodbye. Next Wednesday brings Joey Porter's Vital Organ feat. Garrett Sayers, Dan Schwindt & Daren Hahn!
