MUSIC: Jaimoe Jazzes Up Fete

Friday, February 22, 2013


Jaimoe's Jasssz Band at Fete in Providence featured an organ as cool as the other side of the pillow.

This week at Fete in the Olneyville section of Providence, founding member and drummer for The Allman Brothers Jai "Jaimoe" Johany Johanson and his Jasssz band brought the groove that made for a legendary experience. Providence blues rockers Shotgun opened the night so you knew walking in that the music all around was going to be a treat. How many times can you say that you got to see a founding member of an awesome band like The Allman Brothers play in Providence? Well, if you were at Fete on Saturday you could say you did once.


Shotgun went up to start the show and they blew through the speakers like a stick of dynamite sparked beside a tank of gasoline. "Runnin' Thin", "Alright", "Don't Need No Love", "West Broadway Nights", a cover of The Beatles' "Come Together" and "I Won't Go" was part of a fantastic set, if you love blues the Shotgun is exactly the next big thing you've been looking for. Shotgun will be playing at The Ocean Mist in Matunuck, RI on March 8th with Trails, any south county bluesman should head to this.

Jaimoe's Jasssz Band

Jaimoe's Jasssz Band capped off the night featuring an organ that was cool as the other side of the pillow and a horn section filled with two saxophones and a trumpet that resonated exquisite excellence. "Leavin' Trunk", a rendition of The Allman Brother's original "Melissa". "Hippology", "I'll Believe I'll Make A Change", "Ain't Wastin' Time No More", "Dilemma", "Drifting & Turning" and "Black Cat Bone" were amazing and sounded awesome, you'll definitely know why Jaimoe and his band are that damn good after you see them live. Jaimoe's Jasssz Band has their most recent record Renaissance Man that came out last year that is a must have for any jazz and blues purist out there today. Fete is always a fun place to see a show, log on to www.fetemusic.com to be in the know on the place to go in Providence.
