Melting Pot

Here’s our first real show of 2011, (since last week we were focused on looking back on 2011), with a lot of brand new music, a few that slipped under the radar last year and a couple things that hopefully we’ll get in 2012. Show begins with a short tribute to Sean Bonniwell of the Bonniwell Music Machine who passed in late December. Also gave a shoutout to the Fela! Musical that’s at the Ahmanson until Jan. 22nd, (and did a giveaway for the cast’s upcoming performance at the Troubadour) if you’re a lover of Fela’s music, I can’t recommend this show enough. Now that 2012 is here, looks like it will be a fantastic year for music!
