If you read this website or follow MusicMarauders on Facebook, you know what Wednesdays mean for the Denver area music scene. We take our Wednesdays very seriously, as does Joey Porter's (Juno What) Vital Organ. The Highland Tap was busy that night with private parties, folks dining and fans arriving for the music. Just prior to the 10:00 hour, the band took the stage. On bass, the man for which our Wednesday residencies were created, Garrett Sayers (GS3). On guitar, Dan Schwindt (Kyle Hollingsworth Band)and on drums, Daren Hahn. As always the Tap filled in quickly with appreciative patrons and raging instrumentation!
The music was funky, danceable and ripping with each member of the project reflecting virtuoso type qualities on their instruments. That evening, the band welcomed special guest Steve Watkins (Juno What) for some tone-bending electro key work. He fit into the project well and added a unique layer to the jams. It was pretty special to have two thirds of Juno What in our little neighborhood bar. Two hours after it began, the evening wound down with a ton of cheering, excitement and downright begging for more music And more music is what we got as Joey announced that they would not go through the motions of stepping off stage, but instead would just play more music!
Wednesday November 21st, The Highland Tap welcomes members of Frogs Gone Fishin' & The Drunken Hearts with special guests! Free show, 9:00 pm!
